Improving breathing conditions
An excellent way to improve your breathing is breathing exercises that improve the strength of the respiratory muscles. A combination of breathing exercises combined with halotherapy can be very helpful for an asthmatic person. Breathing deeply, we force increased lung ventilation, allowing the salt molecules to reach the deepest parts of the lungs. A visit to the salt cave may have a negative impact on the patient’s well-being.
To facilitate breathing, special positions are used to facilitate expectoration:
– inhale through the nose, exhale, putting your lips into a whistle, thus slowing the outflow of air (so-called laced lips).
This technique works especially during shortness of breath. During an attack, always try to breathe very shallowly, with every breath taking as little air as possible. The coachman’s position is also helpful during the attack: we sit on a chair, spread our legs wide, lean forward and lean our forearms on the thighs. In the case of prolonged dyspnea, it is recommended to sit at the table and lean the arms on the cushions arranged on the table.
During the attack it is extremely important to expel the secretion, but do not do it “forcefully”. To facilitate the removal of the secretion, it is recommended to put on one side, putting the pillow under the hip. In this position, the secretion is automatically shifted towards the throat.
Often found in asthmatics are morning problems in coughing up. To help them, you can ask someone in your family for a slap in the back, where it’s best to lie down on your stomach, putting 1-2 pillows underneath. The arms should be extended as far as possible.
Haemotherapy is the proven method to improve breathing. Breathing air rich in salt aerosol improves airway patency and facilitates cleansing of accumulated secretions.
