A national survey performed in 2010 found that the fraction of Americans ever diagnosed with asthma has been increasing in recent years, and that it reached 8.4% in 2010. This represents an increase of more than 15% between 2001 and 2010, or roughly 25.7 million Americans with asthma. Isn’t it alarming? Have you ever wondered what is causing this rise and we have covered half of the next decade too, what will be the situation in 2020? With the rate at which air quality is deteriorating, one can not even imagine what will be the condition of asthma patients.
Asthma is a chronic condition in which the bronchial tubes, which are the passageways for air to enter and leave our lungs, becomes inflamed and narrow. Due to this enough of air is unable to enter the lungs and the patient struggles while breathing. When a person suffers from asthma, he/ she find it difficult to breathe in outside air and thus, feel suffocated and congested. It can occur in people of all age groups, from a 2-year old kid to a 50-year old man. The cases of asthma getting severe are on rise these days due to decline in the air quality. This is a result of pollution, deforestation for which ultimately asthma patient have to pay the price. There are many home remedies that can be helpful for asthma patients and make their life easy by assisting them in their painful and uneasy condition. You will find these remedies very easy to do and they will not introduce any side effects in your body for sure. Some of them are ginger paste or tea, cloves extract, bitter gourd, fennel seeds extract and many more. But one method gaining high popularity these days is salt room therapy.

Let us try to understand what actually salt room therapy is. A room prepared with walls that are thickly coated with salt is the environment provided to asthma patients in salt room therapy, as it is also clearly represented by the name. Extremely light air is slowly but continuously blown into the room so that the salt particles embedded in the walls as coating automatically becomes a part of that air. When the patient breathes in this air mixed with salt particles for quite sometime, all the debris and bacteria in the bronchial tube are automatically removed and the tubes gets a perfect cleansing retreat. These salt particles also help in the abatement of bronchial inflammation and strengthening of the immune system that decreases allergic reaction to pollen. The most amazing thing about the treatment is that the patient no more have to bear the hot mustard paste, neither he/ she have to drink bitter things, all he needs to do is just sit in the room and relax. Not only for asthma, salt room therapy is also equally beneficial for chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, allergic and skin ailments.
