This therapy works such that salt is taken and transformed into microscopic salt particles that are released into the air. This allows increased exposure to the salt just by breathing, and allows the salt particles to enter the respiratory tract, which is where it functions to provide health benefits. The main mechanism by which this therapy works, is that salt is an attractor of water, so once it enters and settles onto the lining of the respiratory tract, it draws water from within the cells into the respiratory tract itself. This is very critical in the action of mucus, which is a major player in removing any pathogens or debris present in the airways.
