Salt therapy for bronchitis is a drug-free natural therapy that is clinically proven to work.
The salt reduces the inflammation and swelling of the bronchi and so reduces the chance of infection setting in and causing even more obstruction of the airways.
Acute vs. Chronic Bronchitis
Bronchitis is inflammation and swelling of the bronchi and bronchitis be acute or chronic.
Chronic bronchitis is usually defined as a daily cough with production of sputum for 3 months, two years in a row. In chronic bronchitis, there is inflammation and swelling of the airway lining which leads to narrowing and obstruction of the airways. The inflammation stimulates production of mucous (sputum), which can cause further obstruction of the airways. Obstruction of the airways, especially with mucus, increases the likelihood of bacterial lung infections.
Chronic bronchitis is a sign of serious lung disease.
Acute bronchitis is usually caused by a viral infection, but can also be caused by a bacterial infection and can heal without complications.
Although in both acute and chronic bronchitis there is inflammation of the air passages, their causes and treatments are different.
Acute bronchitis is most prevalent in winter … it usually follows a viral infection, such as a cold or a flu, and can be accompanied by a secondary bacterial infection. Acute bronchitis resolves within two weeks, although the cough may persist longer. Acute bronchitis, like any upper airway inflammatory process, can increase a person’s likelihood of developing pneumonia.
Anyone can get acute bronchitis, but infants, young children, and the elderly are more likely to get the disease because people in these age groups generally have weaker immune systems. Smokers and people with heart or other lung diseases are also at higher risk of developing acute bronchitis. Individuals exposed to chemical fumes or high levels of air pollution also have a greater chance of developing acute bronchitis.
Nowadays powerful development of pharmacology and industrial production of medicines encourages growth of treatment by medication. Simplicity of application, availability and rapid effect give priority to pharmacotherapy. However, along with their therapeutic effect, medicines can cause pathologic conditions that are associated with side effects.
Many allergic conditions and autoimmune processes are caused by medicines. Furthermore, treatment by medication does not restore our own body’s defense mechanisms. This point of view makes physicians turn back to the experience of natural healing factors and carry out investigations in order to find medication-free treatment methods.
