What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disorder that
causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive
system, and other organs in the body. Cystic
Fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus,
swear and digestive juices. These secreted fluids are normally thin and slippery. In some people with Cystic Fibrosis, a defective gene causes the secretions to become sticky and thick. Instead of acting as a lubricant, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways especially in the lungs and pancreas.
How can Halotherapy help with my Cystic Fibrosis symptoms?
Halotherapy 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.
