Salt therapy has proven to be an invaluable resource for sufferers of cystic fibrosis. The hydrophilic and mucokinetic action of inhaled salt particles thins unnaturally thick and sticky mucus, clearing accumulated secretions and unclogging passages in the bronchi and bronchiole. Other benefits are the absorption of edema from the mucosa lining of the airways and the reduction of inflammation in the respiratory tract and sinuses. The extremely viscous nature of mucus secretions in patients with this disease often causes a buildup of bacteria. Salt therapy naturally combats this problem, and can reduce the person’s reliance on antibiotics to control frequent infections. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on the effects of salt therapy on cystic fibrosis patients, “The results of our trial were revolutionary. We saw a sustained improvement in lung function, a major reduction in the number of lung flare-ups, a reduced need for antibiotics to treat flare-ups, and fewer days off school or work due to illness.”
