Could salt be the answer to common cold or even COVID-19?

 

Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, has long been used to relieve respiratory conditions such as asthma and colds, and reduce dependency on medications. Despite its long tradition, many skeptics maintain their stance that the sense of well-being derived from salt therapy remains a placebo effect.

The recent COVID-19, however, has spurred a team of scientists at University of Edinburg to

re-examine the effects of salt and how it may work by boosting cells’ antiviral defence when patients are affected by a cold. 

Strikingly similar to historical records on the effects of salt therapy, these scientists discovered that 95% of participants who have a cold and have used salt water to gargle and rinse nasal passage experienced:

  • shorten duration of illness by two days

  • reduced intake of medicine such cough or cold syrup

Other similar benefits reported include:

  • clear stuffiness

  • easier breathing

  • better sleep

In the same study, it is shown that the presence of salt also inhibits the respiratory viruses tested. These findings are critical because the faster the virus is cleared, the less likely it is to spread especially in the case of a global pandemic such as COVID-19.

There is no better and easier way than to breathe in and harness the benefits of salt therapy. Enjoy the pampering of a spa treatment in Singapore’s first luxury salt spa,
