The Salt Cave is having an Open Day on the 16th November 2011 to celebrate World COPD Day. This means anyone can come along and experience the treatment for free.
The Salt Cave has enjoyed some unbelievable success in treating COPD patients. It has allowed COPD sufferers to ‘enjoy life again’, without the hindrance of being constantly out of breath and living in fear of picking up a cold or a chest infection. The beauty of salt therapy is, unlike many other COPD treatments, it is completely drug-free; the tiny salt particles in the air, which can reach the deepest part of the lung, clean respiratory system allowing patients to breathe more easily. There are no unpleasant side-effects.
Organisers of the Open Day now want to use World COPD Day as a platform to show others what salt therapy can do for them. So the doors of the Salt Cave are being thrown open and everyone is invited along to experience salt therapy for themselves.
World COPD Day was launched by the Global Initiative for Chronic Lung Disease (GOLD) in 2002 to raise awareness of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and to improve prevention and treatment.
The British Lung Foundation, whose Breathe Easy groups are having World COPD Day events the length and breadth of the country, say they are acutely aware that COPD is now spreading to people in their 30s and 40s and recommend preventative action at an early date.
Dr James Cant, from BLF, states: “People put their persistent cough or breathlessness down to old age however they could be symptoms of COPD. Traditionally COPD has been associated with old age however this is a disease that is increasingly affecting people in their 30’s and 40’s.”
