Influence of salt aerosol on the body
Respiratory problems can often be caused by mucus lying on mucous membranes.
This can cause inflammation and narrowing of the airways, which in turn causes difficulty in breathing.
Salt has the ability to dehydrate mucus, therefore allowing for easier expulsion from the mucous membrane, leaving the membrane free for its primary function of preventing infection.
When skin is damaged, the dry salt aerosol works from two directions.
From the outside it works on three levels of skin (see diagram) with the dehydrating effect of salt closing or tightening the wound or damage and smoothing the skin.
From the inside it increases the level of oxygen in the circulatory system and helps the skin’s inner (hypodermis) layer.
