Many studies have shown a connection between asthma and sinus infections. In fact, as many as one-half of all people with moderate to severe asthma also have chronic sinusitis. Each condition can worsen the other, and sinusitis has been associated with more severe cases of asthma.

Sinuses become irritated and swollen from allergens, viruses or bacterial infections. All that sneezing, congestion and teary-eyed misery takes a toll. When the sinus tissue gets irritated, it produces mucus. If enough mucus and trapped air builds up, you experience painful pressure in the sinuses. These are the familiar signs of a sinus headache.

You can spend a lot of money trying to figure out how to calm the reaction. The problem is that antihistamines, decongestants, sinus sprays, allergy shots, prednisone, etc., carry a mixed bag of side effects and give lackluster results. This is where using natural salt really shines.

Natural salt from the Dead Sea is not like table salt. Dead Sea salt is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. It kills harmful bacteria in the lungs, clears mucus buildup, opens air passages and boosts the immune system. The rich mineral content of the Dead Sea is greater than that of ocean water — sodium, potassium and magnesium have been proven to help detoxify the body, stimulate blood circulation, and relieve tension and muscle aches.

For centuries, people have traveled to the shores of the Dead Sea to breathe in the healing salt mist. Salt rooms, now available in the United States, are completely coated from floor to ceiling with multiple layers of pure salt from the Dead Sea. Step inside and deeply inhale the salty mist that fills the air. These tiny salt particles find their way into the deep crevasses in the lower lungs, where their natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties go to work.

Many people with asthma, the flu or other respiratory conditions find that this ancient therapy is more effective than pharmaceutical drugs and, better yet, has no negative side effects. Some allergy sufferers report that their ears even start to drain as they begin coughing and expelling mucus. Each session lasts about 45 minutes.
