Asthma symptoms are caused by an obstruction that occurs in the small airways. This obstruction is caused by bronchoconstriction and inflammatory edema of the airway mucosa. In about 80% of cases, asthma is caused by bronchial hyperreactivity that occurs on contact with certain allergens.
The therapy with salt microparticles with controlled characteristics works in the case of asthma patients as follows:
Studies have shown that SaltMed therapy does not have a risk of bronchoconstriction for patients with asthma, a risk that is present in case of nebulization of hypertonic saline.
There is no risk of overdose with SaltMed therapy and no interactions with other drugs. SaltMed asthma therapy performed as an adjunct to the doctor's prescribed therapy.
SaltMed can be used safely by patients on a salt-restricted diet because salt is not absorbed into the bloodstream from the lungs.
In the first month, the daily duration of treatment should be longer - about 2 hours a day (not less than an hour and a half) - to allow salt to take up water from the inflamed mucosa and reduce mucosal edema. We recommend that, in this first stage, the N-type SaltMed cartridge be used.
After the first month of treatment, the daily duration of therapy can be reduced to one hour per day; SaltMed cartridge type N or L is recommended.
SaltMed therapy should be done throughout the cold season when the risk of asthma attacks is higher. It is very important that the therapy be continued even when the patient is feeling well in order to maintain the effect of desensitisation to allergens and, in this way, a better control of asthma.
Using SaltMed dry salt inhaler does not consume your time! You can use it while watching TV, reading a book or working on a computer or tablet.

In the case of patients with cortisone inhaler treatment, systematic and concomitant administration of SaltMed has made it possible to reduce cortisone doses safely, and the way we have demonstrated this – we have measured the exalted fraction of nitric oxide in the exhaled air and noticed that it has a lower value, which is a very, very good thing. Typically, the values decreased by 2-4 ppm after administration of dried salt particles.
It is a therapy that I used successfully for my child a year ago when he was 4 years old, diagnosed with asthma after several hospital admissions with wheezing. Together with SaltMed every day and gentle treatments (without cortisone, adrenaline, Singulaire or antibiotic), we managed to stay away from these wheezing episodes. During the summer we even didn't have to use SaltMed. We started using it again in winter to protect him from the colds that appeared in the kindergarten.
