Help you breathe eas­ier!

Woman's World - - Natural Health -

There’s a rea­son folks who live by the sea tend to be ex­tra-healthy: Break­ing waves emit tiny salt par­ti­cles that in­hibit air­borne bac­te­ria, al­ler­gens and pol­lu­tants. Once in­haled, these mi­cro­scopic mol­e­cules loosen mu­cus and ease in­flam­ma­tion, re­liev­ing al­ler­gies, bron­chi­tis and even asthma—and one study re­ported a re­mark­able 73% im­prove­ment in pa­tients with chronic ob­struc­tive pul­monary dis­ease (COPD)! ■ Get the ben­e­fit any­where! Try halother­apy (from “halo,” Greek for salt), a re­search-backed ther­apy that’s to­tally free! Boil wa­ter in a medium pot, add 2 Tbs. sea salt. Re­move from stove, cover your head with a towel, form­ing a tent, and lean over the pot. Your face should be 12 inches away to pre­vent get­ting burned by the steam. Breathe nor­mally, then take an ex­tra- deep breath ev­ery minute or so, re­peat­ing for a to­tal of five to 10 min­utes.
