For salt therapy the most important thing is to create a salt aerosol. The word “aerosol” means a solution in the air, and a salt aerosol is a salt solution sprayed into the air. For high-quality salt therapy we recommend using ULTRASALT PRO nebulizers with a 5% solution of Dead Sea salt or Himalayan salt produced by the German company OxygenConcept. It guarantees that the solution is pure and absolutely sterile, which is important for ULTRASALT PRO nebulizers to deliver salt particles into the bronchioles and alveoli of the lungs.

For ULTRASALTy nebulizers you can prepare a 1% salt solution yourself by following the device’s user manual.

ULTRASALT® nebulizers ensure a high-quality salt spray and thus effective SALT THERAPY!

    Unlike molecular solutions, aerosols have tiny particles of dissolved substances floating freely in the air.

    One of the main characteristics of salt aerosol spray is the size of the aerosol particles, the dispersion. According to the degree of dispersion, aerosols can be divided into 5 groups.

    Degree of dispersion Particle size (in microns)
    Highly dispersed 0.5–5
    Midrange dispersion 5-25
    Low dispersion 25–100
    Finely dispersed 100–250
    Coarse dispersion 250–400

The diminution of salt particles gives rise to new properties. These include an increase in the total volume of the salt suspension, which significantly increases the surface area in which the salt comes in contact with the tissue surface. Thus, if 1 ml of liquid is turned into an aerosol spray consisting of particles 5 microns in size, this makes 15,000,000,000 particles with a total area of 12000 cm2. The chemical and physical activity of the salt particles and the trace elements in them increases, which leads to an increase in their pharmacological effect. Creating a high-dispersion aerosol spray has another key advantage. These solutions are more stable, and the particles in the spray can remain airborne for a long time without settling. They can be freely inhaled, and upon exhaling, due to their slowness to settle, some portion of them is exhaled too. When these particles settle it is an important physiological progress, as the ultimate goal of salt therapy is precisely this: the spray penetrating into certain parts of the respiratory tract. Thus aerosol particles 1 micron in size practically do not settle on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract; particles 2–5 microns in size freely and productively settle on the walls of the alveoli, bronchioles, and secondary bronchi; particles of 5–25 microns settle in the primary or main bronchi and the trachea; and particles larger than 25–30 microns settle in the throat and the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract.

  • All in all, salt therapy with an aerosol spray is the most reliable and fast method of supplying the micronutrients in salt to the lungs, alveoli, and the pulmonary blood flow, superior to the intravascular or ingestion route, where the medication has to pass through the stomach, intestines, liver, and vascular system on its way to the lung tissues and loses its potency and concentration.
