The Science Behind Salt Therapy as an Eczema Treatment

A tremendous amount of scientific research has been conducted which proves how salt therapy — especially the form practiced at The Salt Room in Orlando — can help treat and alleviate eczema symptoms and that it is a safe, painless complement to regular eczema treatment regimens.

If you are suffering from Eczema life can become very difficult. Our skin is not only our largest organ but it is the one which can be seen. Eczema not only causes intense irritation but also can spoil your appearance and lower your self confidence. Salt therapy treats your disease and also prevents it from recurring for a long time.

How Salt Therapy Helps Eczema Sufferers

The Salt Room’s salt therapy treatment rooms boast rock salt coated walls and floors. This “halochamber” is equipped with a special halogenerator which ensures a supply of clean dry air, saturated with highly dispersed particles of sodium chloride into the chamber. A special computer in the halogerator monitors the temperature, relative humidity and mass of aerosol in the chamber. The dry sodium chloride is at a mass concentration varying from 1-16 mg/m3 with a particle size of 1-5 um. The size and flow of these salt particles are constantly under observation to give maximum benefit to the patient. The temperature in the salt therapy room varies between 68-78 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity ranges from 40-50%. The room also boasts of a high concentration of negative ions. Negative ions help bolster up your immune system besides being anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic.

Many people suffering from Eczema wear swim suits in The Salt Room’s salt therapy chamber so that a major portion of their skin is exposed to salt particles. Particles of the dry salt aerosol kill bacteria and fungi and cleanse your skin and respiratory tract of allergens like pollen, dust or smoke which trigger your disease. If you also suffer from Seborrhoeic dermatitis and have suffered hair loss, salt therapy will stimulate hair growth. After you have undergone a few sessions at The Salt Room in Orlando, the itching sensation on your skin decreases, cracks heal and rashes disappear. Salt therapy also helps children who suffer from eczema develop greater resistance to the disease and enjoy good health.

Scientific Evidence of Salt Therapy’s Long Lasting Impact for Eczema

If you are suffering from Eczema the salt particles will produce a favorable effect on your blood microcirculation of the skin. Your ph becomes normal and your skin gets a new lease of healthy life. Salt aerosol is a decongestant. The salt reduces inflammation and has antimicrobial effect and it increases natural resistance of skin.

According to Chervinskaya A. V., Doctor of Medical Science, Central Medical Unit 122 of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency in Saint Petersburg “Sodium chloride particles have a beneficial influence not only on respiratory system, but integumentary system and hairs as well, providing healing and cosmetic effect. Depositing on open skin areas, haloearosol increases activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines skin protective properties. Research of skin microbiocenosis showed normalization of superficial autoflora composition after administering HT. Also bacteriostatic, antiedematous and anti-inflammatory effect of dry superfine sodium chloride aerosol was confirmed.”
