The temps keep rising, and it's dry, dry dry. Summer storms continue to roll in with more lightning than rain, causing wildfires across our state and region.
Smoke from wildfires cause various problems for those with existing respiratory issues, such as asthma, allergies and COPD, because the smoke contains particles that can irritate eyes, throat and lungs.
Typical symptoms may include:
Difficulty breathing normally
Cough with or without mucus
Wheezing and shortness of breath
Seasonal allergies and increased pollen made worse by smoke
Particulate matter (PM) - extremely small particles or droplets of pollution in the air are inhaled, making respiratory symptoms worse
Particulate-laden smoke can also worsen cardiac disease. "Inhaled particles trigger the release of chemical messengers into the blood that may increase the risk of blood clots, angina episodes, heart attacks and strokes. People with chronic cardiac conditions are more susceptible to chest pain, heart attacks, cardiac arrhythmias, acute congestive heart failure or stroke."
Salt Therapy for Wildfire Smoke
Using Dry Salt Therapy can help to open your air ways and lungs so you can breathe better. It also helps to remove mucus and phlegm from the respiratory system, which collects particulate matter, pollen and other allergens.
The concept is similar to using a Neti pot, however this is a dry therapy instead of using water, which allows the salt to go deeper into your respiratory system and lungs.
