Regrettably, back to school also brings added exposure to coughs, colds, viruses & influenzas. A common cold for most children is harmless, but for a child with cold/viral induced asthma, it’s very worrisome. A cold can turn into something worse.
Annually, there is a spike in asthma each September. In Canada, about 20-25% of children`s hospital admissions are due to asthma.
Get a jump on the season & prevent illness by preparing your child. Strengthen their immune system & clear out their lungs from foreign particles and extra phlegm which will help reduce asthma attacks, emergency room visits and missed days at school. If tight airways are relieved of extra mucus before a cold hits, airways are better equipped to manage the extra production of mucus.
About 90% of emergency room visits can be prevented with good asthma control. And for parents who are not entirely comfortable with relying strictly on harsh inhaled corticosteroids, the salt rooms provide a different way.
Give them the boost they need to battle airborne bacteria at daycare, the classroom and on playground environments by booking a visit to the salt rooms!
