Speleotherapy

The use of dry sodium chloride aerosol iodized salt penetration into the bronchial tubes helps to reduce swelling of the bronchial mucosa, thinning and removal of phlegm. Indicated in chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, frequent colds.

An important pathogenetic mechanism of violation of bronchial obstruction in patients with asthma is a swelling of the mucous membranes and the formation of viscous mucus sputum. Cough in such patients is exhausting, but always unproductive, not bringing relief. The scant, viscous sputum often found crumbling "plug", representing casts of small bronchi. Application of dry superfine sodium chloride aerosol edible salt that penetrates into the deeper parts of the bronchial tree (bronchioles) helps to reduce the swelling of the bronchial mucosa, thinning and easy removal of viscous mucus (microbes, decay products of microbes and tissue). As a result, it decreases the body's sensitization, inflammatory changes in the bronchial tubes and eliminates some of the causes of bronchospasm, improves bronchial permeability. 

In addition, it can be assumed, and the well-known beneficial effects on the body negatively charged particles, which are formed by mechanical grinding of salt.
