Vanuit de wereldberoemde zoutmijnen in de Hymalaya komen de ruwe zoutstenen die de
basis vormen voor deze prachtige theelichthouders. Deze zoutkristallen zijn zo'n 180 miljoen jaar geleden ontstaan door het indrogen van oceanen. De zoutkristallen worden diep (250 meter) onder de grond gedolven..

Werking:
Behalve dat deze zoutstenen een werkelijk prachtig licht geven, werken deze lampjes ook vitaliserend. Hoe wij ons voelen hangt volgens wetenschappers af van het aantal positieve en negatieve ionen in de lucht. Een teveel aan positieve ionen, veroorzaakt door o.a. beeldschermen, sigarettenrook, en elektrische apparatuur, kan leiden tot lusteloosheid en depressiviteit. Dit kan worden tegengegaan door een hoge concentratie aan negatieve ionen, deze zijn o.a. aanwezig bij watervallen, aan zee, na een onweersbui maar ook bijvoorbeeld bij zoutkristallen. Zoutsteen zuivert de lucht als het ware van positief geladen ionen. Zoutsteen brengt evenwicht in de elektrische lading van ruimtes. Het brengt een ontspannen en positieve sfeer over ruimtes.

Gebruik van zout bij astma in Oostblok

In Oost-Europa zijn er speciale kuuroorden in zoutmijnen waarbij de astma patient een aantal uren per dag in de zout mijn doorbrengt en de zoutlucht inademt.

Speleotherapy or underground climatotherapy is an alternative treatment for asthma used in Eastern Europe. It involves spending 2-3 hours a day underground in subterranean caves or salt mines over a 2-3 month period. This rather old therapeutic modality without a scientific explanation seems to give some benefit to patients with COAD and asthma.

Breathing problems? Try salt mine tourism

Speleotherapy is essentially the treatment of respiratory diseases using the air found in underground caves. Such air is typically rich in natural salt microns and ions, which have been found quite effective in reducing asthma, allergies, and other breathing problems, in addition to soothing irritated skin and restoring ionic balance within the body.

Wieliczka Salt Mine - Poland

Our 6.5-hour treatment visits during rehabilitation - treatment stays (Sunday is a day off) take place in the unique salt scenery of the Lake Wessel Chamber, well - equipped with physical therapy equipment. The chamber is located 135 meters underground. The specific microclimate of the underground Lake Wessel Chamber is characterised by bacteriological purity; furthermore, the air of the chamber contains large quantities of sodium chloride, magnesium and calcium ions. Active rehabilitation treatment includes modern breathing exercises able to control and improve the respiratory system. Therefore, the stay in our mine is especially beneficial for treating: lower and upper tract respiratory system diseases (infections of nose, sinuses, throat, larynx, asthma, COPD, bronchi diseases), allergies, skin diseases, metabolic disorders (obesity).

Droog zout klimaat

Microsalt is de eerste leverancier die een gecontrolleerd droog zout aėrosol microklimaat levert. Door geavanceerde luchtbehandelingsapparatuur te integreren, met een door Microsalt ontwikkelde zout aėrosol micronizer, is het mogelijk geworden om een veilig wellness concept te kunnen aanbieden. Onze micronizer doseert een vooraf ingestelde hoeveelheid zout aėrosol in de Salounge zodra de basis- voorwaarden (temperatuur en luchtvochtigheid) zijn bereikt. Een geavanceerd zoutdeeltjes meetsysteem meet de zout aėrosol dichtheid per m3 en regelt vervolgens het wel of niet vrijgeven van extra zout aėrosol. Op deze wijze wordt voorkomen dat maximaal toelaatbare waarden worden overstegen terwijl de juiste dosering behouden blijft.

Het grootste onderscheid tussen zogeheten zoutgrotten, opgebouwd uit zoutsteen en Microsalt droge zoute aėrosol oplossingen bevindt zich op het vlak van de kwaliteit van de luchtsamenstelling. Traditionele zoutgrotten worden opgebouwd door het opmetselen van zoutblokken of zoutsteen. Er wordt geen zout aėrosol apparatuur gebruikt om de lucht te voorzien van de benodigde dosis zout aėrosol. Om deze reden bevatten de kamers die op deze wijze worden gebouwd nimmer de benodigde hoeveelheid zout aėrosol in de lucht die nodig is om de effectiviteit te realiseren die verkocht wordt.

The use of an artificial microclimate chamber in the treatment of patients with chronic obstructive lung diseases] (COPD)

Chernenkov RA, Chernenkova EA, Zhukov GV.

Halotherapy was used for sanatorium rehabilitation in 29 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (chronic bronchitis and asthma). Significant positive effects of this method resulted in the improvement of the flow-volume parameters curve of lung function and in hypotensive effects on blood pressure. Halotherapy is recommended for use in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases with hypertension or coronary heart disease.

The dynamics of the persistence characteristics of staphylococci under the action of the microclimate of a speleotherapy mine

Chernova OP, Matiushina SB, Volianik MN, Dimova SG, Kartashova VL.

A decrease in the persistence characteristics of staphylococci under the influence of microclimate in a spelean pit has been demonstrated under experimental conditions. Clinical investigations have confirmed the capacity of speleotherapy to decrease the microbial contamination of the upper respiratory tract and to inhibit the persistence properties of staphylococcal microflora in children with respiratory allergosis, which seems to be the basis of the positive effect achieved by treatment with microclimate in a spelean pit.

The efficacy of speleotherapy in salt mines in children with bronchial asthma based on the data from immediate and late observations

Abdullaev AA, Gadzhiev KM, Eiubova AA.

Speleotherapy was conducted in 216 children with bronchial asthma treated in conditions of salt mines situated near the town of Nakhichevan. The assessment of clinical, immunological and functional parameters showed that the best results had been achieved in atopic asthma running a light or moderate course. Speleotherapy courses noticeably diminished broncho-obstructive syndrome, improved pulmonary ventilation. The improvement proved stable in the majority of the patients. It is recommended to include speleotherapy in salt mines into combined rehabilitation treatment of pediatric asthmatics.

Halotherapy in the combined treatment of chronic bronchitis patients

Maev EZ, VinogradovNV.

Halotherapy proved to be a highly effective method in a complex sanatorium treatment of patients with chronic bronchitis. Its use promotes more rapid liquidation of clinical manifestations of disease, improves indices of vent function of lungs, especially those values that characterize bronchial conduction (volume of forced exhalations per second, index Tiffno), increases tolerance to physical load, normalizes indices of reduced immunity and leads to increasing the effectiveness of patient treatment in sanatorium.

Halotherapy for treatment of respiratory diseases.

Chervinskaya AV, Zilber NA.
Saint-Petersburg Pavlov National Medical University,Russia.

This work elucidates the questions upon the development of a new drug-free method of a respiratory diseases treatment. Halotherapy (HT)--is mode of treatment in a controlled air medium which simulates a natural salt cave microclimate. The main curative factor is dry sodium chloride aerosol with particles of 2 to 5 mkm in size. Particles density (0.5-9 mg/m3) varies with the type of the disease. Other factors are comfortable temperature- humidity regime, the hypobacterial and allergen-free air environment saturated with aeroions. The effect of HT was evaluated in 124 patients (pts) with various types of respiratory diseases. The control group of 15 pts received placebo. HT course consisted of 10-20 daily procedures of 1 hour. HT resulted in improvements of clinical state in the most of patients. The positive dynamics of flow-volume loop parameters and decrease of bronchial resistance measured by bodyplethysmography were observed. The changes in control group parameters after HT were not statistically significant. The specificity of this method is the low concentration and gradual administration of dry sodium chloride aerosol. Data on healing mechanisms of a specific airdispersive environment of sodium chloride while while treatment the respiratory diseases are discussed.

The scientific validation and outlook for the practical use of halo-aerosol therapy

Chervinskaia AV.

The paper describes a new medical technique--halo-aerosol therapy, the main acting factor of which is dry highly dispersed aerosol of sodium chloride in natural concentration. Halo-aerosol therapy represents a new trend in aerosol medicine. It includes two methods: halotherapy and halo-inhalation. Biophysical and pathophysiological foundations of the new method, how it can be realized are outlined. Clinical reasons are provided for application of halo-aerosol therapy for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with respiratory diseases. Characteristics and differences of the two halo-aerosol therapy variants are analysed.

A daily nasal spray with saline prevents symptoms of rhinitis.

Tano L, Tano K.
BodenGarrisonHospital, Boden, Sweden. liselott.tano@I19.mil.se

OBJECTIVE: To ascertain whether a daily nasal spray with physiological saline could prevent symptoms of common cold in a population of otherwise healthy adults. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was study involving 10 weeks of daily use of a nasal saline spray and 10 weeks of only recording symptoms. Young adults eligible for military service at an army barrack in Boden, Sweden were invited to participate in the study and 108 healthy conscripts aged approximately 20 years agreed to do so. Data were recorded by the participants in a diary at home. In the diary the participants noted symptoms such as rhinitis, blocked nose, cough, fever and sore throat (pharyngeal pain). They also recorded inability to perform their duties due to the symptoms, and any medication or antibiotics necessitated by upper respiratory tract infection. RESULTS: A total of 69 subjects completed the 20-week diary period. For 60 of them, compliance during the spray period exceeded 60% and their data were used in the statistical calculations. During the spray period the number of days with nasal secretion and/or blocked nose (mean 6.4 days) was significantly (p=0.027) lower than that during the observation period (mean 11 days). Furthermore, the participants had a mean of 0.7 episodes of upper respiratory tract infection during the spray period, compared with 1.0 episodes during the observation period (p=0.05). CONCLUSION: A daily nasal spray with saline can prevent nasal symptoms of common cold in a population of otherwise healthy adults.

The results of the combined treatment of patients with dust-induced bronchitis

Tolmach DV, Bondarenko GA, Aleksanova AM, Demidov IuL, Denisenko AF, Taushan MD, Soboleva NP.

A study in 84 patients with dust-induced bronchitis receiving combined drug treatment, hyperbaric oxygenation, hypobarotherapy and artificial speleotherapy indicates that the first place by its efficacy is occupied by artificial speleotherapy resulting in an improvement of the functional indices of the cardiopulmonary system. The second place is occupied by hypobaric regimen. Hyperbaric oxygenation was of low efficacy.

Effect of the microclimate of salt mines on T- and B-lymphocyte function in bronchial asthma patients

Simionka IuM, Chonka IaV, Pop IL.

A study of 55 patients with bronchial asthma revealed a reduction of the relative number of T-lymphocytes and their IgA content. The changes were most pronounced in patients during the phase of unstable remission of the disease. Disorders of the T- and B-system of lymphocytes were associated with an increased number of cortisol-resistant lymphocytes. After a course of speleotherapy one could observe an increase of the number of T-lymphocytes and their functional activity, normalization of the number of B-lymphocytes, increase of the level of IgA, reduction of the IgM content and of the relative content of cortisol-resistant lymphocytes fraction.

Speleotherapy: a special kind of climatotherapy, its role in respiratory rehabilitation

Horvath T.

Speleotherapy, the use of the climate of caves, is an accepted but not widely known therapeutic measure in the treatment of chronic obstructive airway diseases. This study summarizes the therapeutic experiences of more than 4000 patients who were treated in a 10-year period in a hospital-cave complex in Tapolca,Hungary. A sharp and long-lasting clinical improvement and a significant recovery from airway obstruction could be observed in the overwhelming majority of patients. It is established that the microclimate of some caves can beneficially affect these disorders, but the cave should be considered as an optimal environment for complex respiratory rehabilitation.
