Bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs. People who have bronchitis often cough up thickened mucous, which can be discoloured. Bronchitis may be either acute or chronic. Often developing from a cold or some other respiratory infection, acute bronchitis is very common. Acute bronchitis, also called a chest cold, usually improves within 7 to 10 days without lasting effects, although the cough may linger for weeks. Chronic bronchitis, a more serious condition, is a constant irritation or inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, often due to smoking. Chronic bronchitis can be defined as a ‘productive’ (mucous producing) cough that lasts at least 3 months, with recurring bouts occurring for at least 2 consecutive years. Chronic bronchitis is one of the conditions included in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).


Acute bronchitis is usually caused by viruses, typically the same viruses that cause colds and flu (influenza). Antibiotics don't kill viruses, so this type of medication isn't useful in most cases of bronchitis. It can also be caused by bacterial infection and exposure to substances that irritate the lungs, such as tobacco smoke, dust, fumes, and air pollution.

Chronic bronchitis is caused by repeated irritation and damage of the lung and airway tissue. Smoking is the most common causes of chronic bronchitis, with other causes including long-term exposure to air pollution, dust and fumes from the environment, and repeated bouts of acute bronchitis.

Salt Therapy, Bronchitis

  • Salt is anti-bacterial and helps to dry out the germs and bacteria from the respiratory system
  • Salt is anti- inflammatory; dry, saline-diffused air reduces inflammation throughout the respiratory tract
  • Being mucolytic, salt loosens excessive mucous and speeds up the elimination of toxins
  • Salt is a natural antihistamine and helps to reduce IgE levels (the immune system won’t over-react to the level of antibodies)

Salt Therapy helps to treat many conditions of the airways - swelling, inflammation, excessive mucous production, and bacterial infection. In most cases, after a course of Salt Therapy, inflammation and over-sensitivity within the airways/bronchi reduces, thereby alleviating the cough and also improving the quality of breathing.


  • Depending on the severity and on how long you have had the condition, 12 to 30 sessions are recommended. For acute bronchitis, 12 to 15 sessions are suggested. People with chronic bronchitis are advised to do 24 to 30 sessions for relief from symptoms.
  • The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.
  • Ideally, chronic bronchitis sufferers should do 1 to 2 courses of salt therapy a year. Top-up sessions can be done in between courses if required to keep the airways free from mucous build-up.

In most cases, after a course of Salt Therapy, airways become more normal and symptoms alleviate or even disappear for an extended period of time. The treatment's efficacy is estimated at 75 to 98%.


After a course of Salt Therapy, most people feel that their breathing improves substantially. This helps them to enjoy a better quality of life, with the ability to do many things that they could not do previously. People with bronchitis find that not only does Salt Therapy bring relief in the shorter term, but can also delay the frequency of re-occurrence of symptoms.

After about 4-5 sittings, my breathing became easier; throat irritation reduced; feeling of constriction in throat also became less. After 25 sittings, I am now much better. I am very comfortable.
