Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disorder that affects the lungs of many people, as well as the kidneys, liver, intestine and pancreas. It is a result of the CTFR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator) gene being not functional. This CTFR defect causes fluids in the body to become thicker than usual; resulting in clogging and restrictions in the airways and arteries.
“I bought this (Salin Plus) for my son who has Cystic Fibrosis a year ago, and it has made a massive and positive difference to his night time coughing. He rarely coughs overnight anymore, and he awakes feeling well rested and relaxed…” - Ray
The symptoms of cystic fibrosis are numerous and include coughing, shortness of breath, frequent chest infections and thick mucus. Those that inherit the disorder also experience poor growth, poor weight-gain and salty tasting skin (due to salt loss in the body).
The Salin Plus Salt Therapy Device provides natural, non-invasive rehabilitation for those afflicted by cystic fibrosis. Dry salt particles at 1-5 microns have mucolytic effects, meaning they help to move sticky mucus and reduce the chance of further infection. Salt therapy’s anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties improve lung function and can help alleviate symptoms of cystic fibrosis. Salt therapy eases shortness of breath by opening the bronchi and loosening built up mucus.
The replaceable salt filter circulates and purifies air, removing particles 10 microns or greater that can otherwise trigger the symptoms of cystic fibrosis. Regular use of the Salin Plus Salt Therapy Device is a good choice to help improve overall lung and airway function, while reducing the severity of symptoms. The recommended time to have the device switched on each day is 8-10 hours; perfect for a peaceful night’s rest.
“This product is absolutely incredible. I have such severe asthma and Cystic Fibrosis and this pretty much stopped my asthma attacks at night from the very first night. I used to be up 2-3 times per night and now I am up maybe once every 2 weeks - incredible I can't rate this product enough.” - Amy
