Having a health respiratory system is important as it aids the oxygen intake and circulation throughout your body. However, at times, due to pollutants, dust, irritants, and other harmful organisms, some people may get infections which cause them to suffer from various kinds of breathing problems.
Some of these breathing problems include asthma, bronchitis, and cystic fibrosis. There are many causes to breathing problems. For instance, there may be a problem with your lungs or airways whereby the airways have become narrower and more phlegm is produced. So, this causes wheezing and coughing. Another cause may be due to a heart problem. In some cases, heart failure can be linked to breathing difficulties. When your heart has difficulty in pumping blood throughout your body because of weak or stiff heat muscles, water is built up inside the lungs, which causes breathing problems.
So then, what can be done to treat breathing problems? There are many kinds of respiratory care provided around Singapore. Besides visiting a general practitioner, there are some things that people suffering from breathing difficulties can do for themselves. For instance, practicing deep breathing techniques, surrounding oneself with an environment of clean, fresh air (e.g. surrounding with many green leafed plants) and actively monitoring one’s diet.
Recently, another method is being used to cure breathing problems. Respiratory care centres such as Breathya has been promoting what is known as salt therapy in Singapore. Salt therapy is natural and is a powerful kind of treatment carried out in a controlled air medium. During these sessions, salt is ground into micro particles and dispersed into the salt room. In these rooms, customers inhale the salt enriched air which reaches down deep into the lungs.
The effects of inhaling the salt is that it helps loosen the mucus trapped, reduce inflammation, eliminate toxins and allergens. This would in turn make breathing easier by making more room in the airways. In addition, salt therapy provides emotional benefits such as helping to increase energy, alleviate stress, and promote better sleep.
If you ever find yourself having some sort of breathing problem, why not try a different approach? You may not only end up being able to breathe better, but gain so much more in terms of overall wellbeing.
