Cystic fibrosis is one of the most dangerous diseases in the world. Mutual carriers of the cystic fibrosis gene pass down to their children and it is one of the most common life-shortening inherited diseases in the world. To date there is no cure. Treatment with the help of drugs like antibiotics and bronchodilators brings short term relief. Fortunately Salt Halo Therapy treatments not only brings relief but can also prevent the recurrence of symptoms.
The patient inhales salty air which has bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties. If you are a carrier of cystic fibrosis, salt therapy treatment at our Salt Caves will bring relief by opening up the respiratory tract, clearing accumulated mucus and unclogging blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles. It also absorbs edema from the mucosa lining in the airway passages and reduces inflammation of the respiratory tract.

Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary disease which affects your entire body. It is caused by a defective gene that is passed on when both parents are carriers of cystic fibrosis (meaning they have at least one abnormal gene). The disease is named after the cyst formation in the Pancreas. The disease usually manifests itself in childhood and can lead to an untimely death. Symptomatic carriers often experience breathing difficulties as the thin mucus lining the respiratory tract becomes thick and sticky.
Symptoms associated with cystic fibrosis include salty tasting skin, normal appetite but poor growth and poor weight gain, excess mucus production, frequent chest infections and coughing/shortness of breath. It also affects the digestive system as enzymes and bile fail to reach the intestine owing to the blocked ducts of pancreas and liver. Treatment includes the use of antibiotics and bronchodilators which have adverse side effects.
