Flu and Cold

What is Cold or Flu?

Influenza (flu) and the common cold are both types of upper respiratory infections (URIs). Both are caused by viruses. But the flu is not the same as the common cold. The common cold, including chest cold and head cold, and seasonal flu are caused by viruses. Use over-the-counter cold medications to relieve symptoms including sore throat, runny nose, congestion, and cough. Flu symptoms are similar, but include fever, headache and muscle soreness

Symptoms Of Cold And Flu

  • Runny noses, sneezing, sinus blockage, headaches caused by sinus pressure, and sore throat all accompany viruses.
  • You may also experience body aches, high fever, and dry cough.

Treating those symptoms helps your body fight and eliminate the virus and bacteria, causing it.

How the salt cave can help

Salt is naturally inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antimicrobial, which means it targets bacterial pathogens and breaks them down effectively. When the salt particles are inhaled, it quickly works to break down mucus, making it easier to dislodge and dispel. This natural anti-histamine helps relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways.

How often should you come?

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but once you’ve been exposed to a virus, your best course of action is to treat it often. At The Salt Room Wesley Chapel, we recommend salt therapy at least 3 times a week to help expel the bacteria hiding in your mucus from your chest and nasal area. The continual practice of halotherapy can keep your immune system healthy and help prevent future infections. The stronger your immune system gets, the less likely you are to catch a cold or the flu.

Whether you have already caught a cold or flu, have got oncoming symptoms, or you are looking for proactive measures to prevent it, halotherapy is the perfect holistic treatment for you! It’s 100% all-natural, and many experience relief instantly. Get relief by opening your nasal airways, killing bacteria, and draining your sinuses. Salt therapy can improve the overall effectiveness of your immune system by helping the body fight bacteria and infection.
