Today we are going to talk about Pneumonia, a common lung infection that leads to inflammation in the air sacs and the alveoli. We will look at the most common treatments as well as the natural treatment for Pneumonia and the benefits of salt therapy in easing common symptoms such as a dry cough and shortness of breath.

Natural treatments for Pneumonia include drinking broth-based soups, sucking on ice cubes and drinking teas that act as natural expectorants. Peppermint, Licorice Root, Eucalyptus, and Fennel are great for temporarily relieving symptoms. Salt Therapy for pneumonia is also highly effective in treating the causes and symptoms of pneumonia and is commonly used in hospitals (hypertonic saline inhalation) when antibiotics prove to be unhelpful.
The number of therapeutic centres offering salt room therapy has increased in recent times as the medical profession acknowledges the benefits of salt-therapy for those with respiratory conditions. The conditions prevailing in salt caverns or at the seashore can be recreated at home using a salt air device that creates microscopic particles of salt. Breathing in salt particles does have positive benefits such as:
- Mucus is expelled due to the mucolytic effect of salt
- Salt reduces inflammation in the airway
- Acts as an anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal agent
- Salt helps to improve blood oxygenation
- Helps in expelling allergens and other foreign particles
Breathing in salt air reduces the dependence on nasal sprays and other drugs. Improved blood oxygenation and ease of breathing help improve energy levels and wellbeing.
