A new therapy that has been recently introduced helps in treatment of colds, bronchitis and also other forms of allergies. Known as the Salt Room Therapy, this treatment was launched on Saturday where the patients were asked to relax in a room with walls made of thick lines of salt. The light air that is blown in to the room continuously helped the participants breathe minute particles of salt mixed with the air, as reported by The Health Site.

According to the doctors, the salt particles remove all the bacteria and debris once it reaches the respiratory tracts through the nose. They also work wonders in getting rid of bronchial inflammation while building the immunity system that reduces the body's allergic reaction to pollen. There are also other noted benefits of using the salt room therapy that is already being used in the west. It is also being used for the treatment of dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, promoting better sleep etc. Salt room therapy has been touted as the new drug free treatment to asthma, sinusitis, allergies and skin conditions, said Business Fortnight.

"I am hopeful that this initiative will not just help people with respiratory and skin conditions but will offer them an effective drug-free treatment option to fight the rising pollution all around us," said SRT India founder Anju Chandna. "With the onset of winter, when respiratory problems aggravate due to smog, treatments like Salt Room Therapy, a natural form of treatment, can provide symptomatic relief to patients suffering from respiratory problems,' said Animesh Ray, consultant pulmonologist at Fortis. As per the doctors, this therapy can also replace steroid use and other expensive medication that is used for respiratory diseases that do not offer complete relief, reports The Health Site
