A salt spray from ULTRASALT® nebulizers allows you to prevent and treat ailments like:

    • The common cold
    • Allergies affecting the ears, nose, throat, or sinuses
    • Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis
    • Diseases of the ear or nose (rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, tonsillitis)

Salt therapy is ESPECIALLY effective for children – they get ill less often, and they shake off colds!

For salt therapy we recommend using ULTRASALT® nebulizers with a solution of Dead Sea salt or Himalayan salt, which are petrified sea salts from millions of years ago. These salts are the most environmentally pure and, unlike regular table salt, they are rich in micronutrients and biologically active substances, consisting of 84 elements on the periodic table.

 

The way in which hard salt crystals are formed through ultrasonic dispersion is quite simple. Once airborne, microscopic droplets of salt solution dry out in mere seconds and turn to cubic crystals. The slightest movement of the air keeps the crystals floating without settling for a long time, just like a sea breeze. Breathing salt-enriched air has become a widely-recognized health treatment and it is more and more popular each year.

The tiny particles of salt in the aerosol spray enter the respiratory system and immediately began to cleanse the airways, helping to dissolve phlegm and destroy infectious microorganisms. A salt microclimate also stimulates the body’s natural cleaning mechanisms and further helps to remove foreign bodies, thus fighting infection and relieving irritation.

ULTRASALT nebulizers use ultrasonic energy to produce fine particles of salt solution. They increase the chemical and physical action of the trace elements in salt, which improves their therapeutic effect. Over 70% of the particles created by ULTRASALT ultrasonic nebulizers are less than 5 microns in size (and can be as small as 0.5 microns). This allows them to be practically the only method to deliver microparticles of salt spray into the alveoli and act on the entire respiratory tract.

Aerosol spray salt therapy (inhalation) is one of the main ways to prevent inflammatory respiratory illnesses. Inhalation has a number of advantages over other means of delivering medicinal substances. It has an ability to directly and immediately act on inflammation in the mucous membranes, plus the substance inhaled is practically not absorbed into the blood and has no side effects on other organs and parts of the body as often happens with tablets or injections. It is a more economical and convenient way to quickly alleviate symptoms.

As a result of the ultrasonic reduction of salt solution particles, there is a significant increase in the surface area for the salt spray to come into contact with tissues. Thus, if 1 ml of liquid is converted into an aerosol spray with particles 5 microns in size, then it makes 15,000,000,000 particles in a total space of 12,000 cm2.

Microparticles of salt settling onto tissues is a very important physiological process, for the ultimate goal of inhalation is precisely this: absorption of spray in certain parts of the respiratory tract. Aerosol particles 8–10 microns in diameter settle in the mouth and trachea; particles with a diameter of 5–8 microns settle in the trachea and upper respiratory tract; 3–5 microns – in the lower respiratory tract; 1–3 microns – in the bronchioles; and 0.5–2 microns – in the alveoli. Particles less than 5 microns in size are known as the respiratory fraction and have the greatest therapeutic effect.

When the spray is inhaled, it acts on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. Absorption by the mucous membranes of the nose and sinuses takes place mainly in the intercellular spaces and the circulatory and lymphatic system in the submucosal layer. Bronchial absorption is more intensive than in the trachea, while the greatest absorption takes place in the alveoli.

The substances that enter into the lymph circulate for some time in the pulmonary cycle of lymphatic circulation and pass through the thoracic duct into the circulatory system, where the amount of the substances change, and then a portion of them again return to the lungs. When this treatment method is inhaled, the trace elements enter directly into the arterial bloodstream, pass the liver barrier and, before being filtered by the kidneys, are absorbed by all tissues. In addition, thanks to the abundant network of lymph vessels, conditions are created for concentration of these micronutrients in lung tissues and gradual absorption of them into the bloodstream. At the same time, the alveoli membranes’ high absorption, their large surface area (80–100 m2), and the fast circulation of blood ensure absorption of microparticles of salt in the lungs. Another important factor is that few of these micronutrients are destroyed in the lungs, so they remain active.
