Halotherapy for Ear Infections
Halotherapy: How Can it Help Ear Infection Symptoms?
If you’ve ever experienced an ear infection, which you very likely have, you know how agonizing it can be. When you have one, it’s generally due to also having a cold, a throat infection, or an allergy attack that has caused a buildup of fluid in the middle ear. Now imagine how children feel, especially when they are only old enough to express discomfort by crying.
When you are suffering from an ear infection, you should always call your doctor’s office. The trouble with making appointments to be seen is the pain you suffer while you wait and not to mention the prescriptions and cost of co-pays or out of pocket expenses.
If you have done any research on holistic treatments or natural remedies for ear infections, you may have come across the term “Halotherapy” in your results. Salt therapy can be an immediate source of relief for sufferers. The best part is, it’s suitable for all ages. Here are the details:
Ear Infection Relief
Halotherapy is not only 100% natural, it is also completely safe and drug-free. When your ear is infected, there is a buildup of mucus in your middle ear that cannot be drained due to the swelling of the eustachian tubes, and when fluid builds it creates a nice warm nesting place for germs and bacteria.
Halotherapy can significantly relieve the pain and swelling that accompanies the ear infection by penetrating the ear canal with salt particles. Salt is an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. This means the swelling of the tubes in your ear will be reduced, allowing the fluid to drain.
Halotherapy can also relieve the underlying issue that caused the ear infection. When you breathe in the salt particles, they loosen and clear out the mucus and bacteria that originally lead to the infection.
Adults struggle to deal with the symptoms of ear infections, so you can imagine how difficult it is for children to tolerate the pain. This makes halotherapy a great option for children who are experiencing the pain of an ear infection. Halotherapy is relaxing and can relieve the pain of a fussy child who does not understand why their ears are hurting.
