With the modern rhythm of life, falling out of workload for even a couple of days means losing a lot. How annoying, when this happens from the reasons that are beyond our control – the ubiquitous viruses. At first, the child brings the disease from the children’s team, then relatives, taking care of the baby, catch the infection. And assume the occurrence of this circle is not so difficult, especially in the autumn-winter period. Therefore, it is logical to prepare for viral attacks in advance.
Modern approaches to the prevention and treatment of viral respiratory diseases emphasize the attention of many doctors and patients precisely on the ineffectiveness of antibiotic therapy. It enhances the immune deficiency and worsens the course of the disease. Undeniable merits of the main method of preventing viral diseases – vaccination but, not all viruses are trampled through the development of vaccines, it is not always advisable to use the vaccine. Vaccine prevention has its disadvantages and limitations. And then in the prevention and treatment of acute respiratory infections, the methods of nonspecific prophylaxis are at the forefront, they contribute to the strengthening and normal functioning of the body’s protective forces.
Strengthening immunity – does not mean buying a bunch of medicines and vitamins and feeding this baby from day to day. It is much more effective to create optimal conditions for the development of a growing organism – proper nutrition, daily walks, dosed physical activity, sanitation of foci of infection, sanatorium and resort treatment in the presence of chronic diseases, in order to prevent relapse. I would like to emphasize that just being in a recreational zone, for 2-3 weeks – not yet healing. The difference in climatic parameters is not the only cause of illness during healing. All you need is a competent approach and to rest including. The more physiological parameters that undergo healing, the softer adaptation, and more stable result.
For each pathology their conditions. In our case, we focus on the climate, which has a beneficial effect on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, restores their structure after the transferred inflammatory processes, improves the parameters of the function of external respiration, carries a chronic infection. Such properties are air-saturated with salt aerosol.
But here we start to understand more specifically – and what salt aerosol ?? The first salt is not always sodium chloride. But for our body more natural is this connection and in a certain concentration. Increasing or reducing the amount of sodium and chlorine ions in organic liquids entails pathological conditions. Therefore, the advantage in speleotherapeutic techniques is given to salt mines in which the gallium or halocamer is produced (in salt rooms), where this mineral is used for facing.
It is essentially what salt aerosol is used for halotherapy – wet or dry. So dry and wet aerosol shown in bronchopulmonary diseases, but dry aerosol generated by a piece of salt rooms, has a great penetrating power and more efficiently deposited in the respiratory tract compared to the wet aerosol and therefore does not cause bronchospasm, which occurs in many patients by inhalation of a wet aerosol sodium chloride
Certain concentrations of sodium chloride, both dry and in a wet state, have osmotic activity, affect the rheological properties of bronchial mucus (sputtering), facilitating its removal from the bronchi (bronchodilator effect). The dry aerosol of sodium chloride has anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, antimicrobial effect, enhances the protective immunobiological properties of the mucous membrane.
Particles of dry salt aerosol are bound to particles of air contaminants (dust, allergens, microorganisms), accelerating their precipitation, which leads to the purification of the atmosphere of the room of a salt room or cave. When sprayed with a wet salt aerosol, which does not have such properties, in enclosed spaces, there is also the risk of infectious infection of patients during the procedure. The presence of ultrasound inhalers on the market of medical equipment has displaced the need to create halocarms that produce the moist salt aerosol. At the moment, inhalations through the nebulizer serve as an alternative method. However, individual inhalation with the aid of a nebulizer never equalizes with the results obtained from inhalation of salt aerosol in natural conditions – by the sea. Here in the process of treatment or prevention include all natural parameters – the sun, air and water. Moreover, during a storm, the concentration of salt aerosol increases several times. So we have several options for halotherapy in Ukraine: treatment in natural (natural) salt mines – speleosanatorium “Salt Symphony” in Soledar city;
treatment in artificial salt mines (salt rooms, galocamera), treatment and rehabilitation in sanatoria located in recreational zones (seaside, salt lakes, salt geysers).
