How can Salt Therapy help “Cystic Fibrosis”?
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease which is characterized by the production of abnormally viscid secretions by exocrine glands and mucus secreting glands, such as those in the respiratory tract.
In the respiratory system, mucus is normally thin and can easily be cleared by the airways. With Cystic Fibrosis, mucus becomes thickened and sticky and results in blocked airways. Eventually, larger airways can become plugged and cysts may develop.
Lung infections are very common with Cystic Fibrosis, because bacteria that are normally cleared, remain in the thickened mucus. Many of these infections are chronic. Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) is the most common bacteria that causes lung infections
