This article looks at an old piece of advice given to people that says you should breathe salty air for respiratory health and to open up your airways to feel good.
You have probably heard of breathing deeply of the fresh sea air to make you feel great and clear out your lungs.
Well, it's true!
Breathing the salty sea air is actually good for you and not only that, it's good for your respiratory health as well.
The salt in the sea air has natural healing properties.
When it gets inside your lungs, it actually helps to cleanse the airways of all the phlegm, dust and other unwanted particles.
As well as this, it also helps to kill harmful bacteria and infectious invaders while boosting your body's own defence mechanisms that it uses to keep things in good working order.
Natural Breathing Remedies Work
It can be quite baffling to look around at some of your friends and see those that are perpetually healthy despite leading a pretty awful lifestyle, eating all kinds of junk and doing everything they shouldn't be doing.
At the same time it can be irksome to be trying your level best to lead a clean and healthy lifestyle yet you end up suffering with all kinds of health problems. Not least of all a respiratory complaint that just won't go away!
Sometimes, it is just easier to accept that some people will find it easy to remain healthy while others are prone to attract sickness and a whole range of medical problems along the way. But that doesn't mean you have to be one of them!
Alleviate Respiratory Ailments
You can try breathing in salty air as a natural remedy for all kinds of breathing complaints from allergies like hay fever to medical complaints like asthma, emphysema and COPD for example. There are several ways you can do this.
One is to go live by the seaside so you get lungfuls of fresh salty sea air every day that cleanse your airways and keep your lungs fresh and clear. Another is to go spend a vacation in a salt mine to get the same effect.
Or another is to simply stay put and get yourself a salt pipe inhaler and enjoy that healthy, healing salt therapy (speleotherapy) right there in your own home (or wherever else you happen to be, since they're compact and portable).
With the right information in your armory, you can tip the balance between remaining an accepted wheezing and coughing wreck and instead become a much more healthy version of you. You can do that just by putting into practice the help that you will get from researching and finding out how to do it.
Far too many people simply give up and accept what they believe is their inevitable fate. But when you learn to take control of your life by doing things for yourself, you will find that you don't have to accept any condition when there is a way to change it.
Most things in life can be changed when you make up your mind that you are going to change them because you can and not because anything is perceived as being permanent!
Some children also have breathing problems that can be helped by using salt air treamnets. This article: www.ccwsd.org/child-health/helping-your-child-breathe-more-easily.php covers that aspect of this subject.
