What is Laryngitis
Laryngitis occurs when your voice box or vocal cords become inflamed from overuse, irritation, or infection. Laryngitis can be acute (short-term), lasting less than three weeks. Or it can be chronic (long-term), lasting more than three weeks.
Many conditions can cause the inflammation that result in Laryngitis. Viral infections, environmental factors, and, bacterial infections can all cause Laryngitis.
What causes Laryngitis?
Acute Laryngitis is a temporary condition caused by overusing the vocal cords. Or it can be caused by an infection. Treating the underlying condition causes the Laryngitis to go away.
Chronic Laryngitis results from long-term exposure to irritants. And it is usually more severe and has longer-lasting effects than acute Laryngitis.
Acute laryngitis can be caused by:
- Viral infections.
- Straining your vocal cords by talking or yelling.
- Bacterial infections.
Chronic Laryngitis can be caused by:
- Frequent exposure to harmful chemicals or allergens.
- Acid reflux.
- Frequent sinus infections.
- Smoking or being around smokers.
- Overusing your voice.
- Low-grade yeast infections caused by frequent use of an asthma inhaler/
How our Salt Caves can help your Laryngitis
Salt Halo Therapy will ease your Laryngitis symptoms by opening the blockages in the sinus tract.
The salt particles reach inwards and draw out the fluid accelerating the pace of mucus clearance. It will reduce edema of the nasal mucosa, causing nasal blockage which in turn leads to widening of the airway passage in the nose and throat. Salt Halo Therapy also reduces infection by killing bacteria. Your dependence on prescription drugs will diminish. It will also bolster up your immune system. A complete treatment regimen of 5-15 sessions will provide benefits for as long as 6-12 months.
