In Clinical trials, Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, has been proven to be effective in relieving the symptoms of a variety of respiratory and skin ailments.
During one of the clinical trials, Salt Therapy resulted in improvement of the clinical state in:

  • 85% of mild and moderate asthma cases
  • 75% if severe asthma cases
  • 97% of chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis cases

(Journal of Aerosol Medicine, A.V. Chervinskaya, Volume 8. Number 3, 1995)

Clinical Research on children

Clinical trials have shown that children react very quickly, effectively and intensely to natural healing methods.

The effectiveness of Salt Therapy is directly observable and highly recommended for all pediatric respiratory and skin conditions.

Studies show that 85- 95% of children became symptom-free, after only 3 salt therapy sessions per week for up to 2 months.

This effect is long-term. Parents noted that after 10-12 months there was still a significant improvement in their children’s symptoms

Regular medication had also been reduced by 65-75%. The treatment definitely improved the children’s quality of life.
