Halotherapy in Patients with Cystic Fibrosis: A Pilot
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a complex genetic disorder involving the lower and upper respiratory tract. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Halotherapy on sinusitis symptoms, dyspnea, pulmonary function tests, and quality of life in CF patients. Study:
Double-blind placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial on the efficacy of Aerosol in the treatment of sub-obstructive adenotonsillar hypertrophy and related diseases.
Adenotonsillar hypertrophy (ATH) is a frequent cause of upper airways obstructive syndromes associated to middle ear and paranasal sinuses disorders, swallowing and voice disorders, sleep quality disorders, and occasionally facial dysmorphisms. ATH treatment is essentially based on a
number of medical-surgical aids including nasal irrigation with topical antibiotics and corticosteroids and/or treatment with systemic corticosteroids, immunoregulators, thermal treatments, adenotonsillectomy, etc.
Effects of antioxidant supplementation on the values of exhaled nitric oxide in asthmatic children

Psoriasis Treatment with Salt Therapy
Salt Therapy is a non invasive, gentle topical treatment that can reduce the inflammation and redness of skin. By exposing your skin during a Salt Therapy treatment, the microscopic dry aerosol particles of salt will land on the skin and can result in improvements in the skin’s protective properties and superficial bacteria flora (the good bacteria on our skin). The natural anti-histamine, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties found in salt help balance the pH levels and induce regenerative processes in the skin.
