It’s December, already! This month starts off the peak of flu season for us. You know what that means, an abundance of people feeling under the weather. Colds in general tend to get passed around to other family members, friends, caregivers, and co-workers. Which means no school for them and no work for you. Ever had the flu passed around in your family? When I was a child, I had the flu. Then my sister did. Then my mom did. So, in total my mom didn’t go to work for nearly 3 weeks. My poor mom was only trying to take care of me and my sister. Her care and love got her rewarded with a terrible case of the flu. The flu game is no fun, no fun at all.
Here at The Salt Station, we have been hearing quite a few cases of adults and children getting the flu. Yet we are only scraping the surface of flu season. When you think about it, when you get the flu, the first thing you do is take enough Ibuprofen to muscle up the energy to go to the doctors. Then spend less than 2 minutes with the doctor the entire hour you’re suffering through to be there, possibly get a shot in the bottom and be prescribed a medicine. Which may, or may not, work. That’s the typical protocol. Now, have you ever thought of a method to prevent you from getting the flu in the first place? Here at The Salt Station, we like to take an alternative approach to health and wellness. Living a healthy lifestyle is all about prevention. Building your immune system so well that not even a pesky flu-zombie can penetrate it. Sounds impossible, right?
Think again. Salt halotherapy is an ancient therapy that has helped millions of people live a health-giving lifestyle. It’s an all-natural way to keep your family healthy by preventing colds and boosting the immune system. Salt is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antifungal. The micro-particles of dry salt dispersed in the air are absorbent and act like a sponge, attracting foreign substances along their path through the respiratory tract. This cleansing of the respiratory system naturally results in an improved immune system, higher oxygen intake and increased energy.
In our adult Canyon Room, you simply lay down in a comfortable chair and relax for 45 minutes. In our children’s Aquarium Room, the kiddos play with toys in the Himalayan salt that’s on the floor of the room while you catch up on that book you keep meaning to read. Oh, but there is one catch…all you must do is BREATHE. Build you and your family’s fight response this flu season at The Salt Station. We have 3 different therapy rooms to accommodate everyone’s needs. Come in when you’re ready to take control of you and your family’s health and start your journey to a strong immune system with us!
