AAFA Explains: Is Salt Therapy Safe and Effective for Asthma?

AAFA Community Services ·
In our second post in our “AAFA Explains” series, we look at claims that salt treatment (also known as halotherapy) can improve your asthma. “Salt rooms” are popping up in the U.S., Australia, the U.K. and elsewhere.

We need the federal service dog law to be tighter, with state registries, to not only protect people with legitimate service dogs, such as blind people, but to end this trend of everyone thinking...
