Often times when we talk about salt therapy, we are mentioning its curative effects in case of asthma, broncihits, dermatitis and hay fever. However, how many of you have experienced the benefits of salt therapy thanks to its ability to re-establish fluid, sodium and electrolytes balance in our bodies? Not only does the salt therapy lead towards stronger lung capacity and youthful skin - it has a balancing effect on the body as a whole.
This effect has now been experienced by people suffering from auto-immune diseases (lupus, arthritis) who are on a daily treatment of oral corticosteroids such as medrol (methylprednisolone) or prednisolone. This drug is known for its uncomfortable side effects, most importantly – the fluid & sodium retention and electrolytes imbalance. By taking salt therapy while on oral corticosteroid treatment, these uncomfortable side effects can be relieved.
