I think it’s safe to say we are all sick and tired of hearing about COVID-19. We desire to go back to a time when we never worried about face masks or social distancing. A time when everyone went freely about their lives. Business as usual. But we’re not there yet. Although fatality numbers related to COVID have been down, new variants of the original virus are continuing to cause infections.
The latest BA.5 variant is highly transmissible and able to avoid the immunity defense offered by vaccines or prior infections. It is causing a recent surge of hospitalizations across the country. Many individuals that had prior COVID infections are getting it again. Vulnerable individuals continue to be at high risk for severe infection, including death.
What is very concerning about COVID-19 are the long-term effects on the body. Recent research on COVID has shed light on the radical differences compared to other viruses, such as influenza (flu). The COVID-19 virus can permanently alter the structures of some organ systems, like the lungs and kidneys. The long-term effects of these changes are unknown, but we need to be cautious. The best protection, of course, is prevention.
A few simple things you can do – and you already know them well. Wear a face mask when inside, especially around large groups of people. Social distance of at least 6 feet. Wash your hands frequently. Get recommended vaccinations. And take care of your overall health.
One of the benefits of halotherapy is optimizing your respiratory system. The micronized salt helps you thin mucus and clear your airways of debris. The salt we use is non-toxic, without any additives, so you will not experience any negative side effects. It is a drug-free and non-invasive treatment. Halotherapy will allow you will breathe better, and therefore oxygenate better. Please visit our website for more information at www.salteddesert.com.
