Brine inhalations

Inhalation is a method that prevents and helps treat many diseases of the respiratory tract, which relies on inhalation of diluted brine sprayed in the form of aerosol. Inhalation of brine aerosol causes hydration of the respiratory tract, thinning mucus and helping remove it from the body. During this treatment, iodine absorption occurs, resulting in a more prolonged increase in the level of iodine in the blood and its absorption into the tissues of the body, especially the nervous system. Iodine is a trace element necessary for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland, regulates energy metabolism in the body, while the bromine has a calming effect, relieves nervous tension and stress.

Moreover, brine inhalations support:

  • Eradication and inhibition of inflammation.
  • Mucosal hydration.

Inhalations help in the prevention of the following diseases:

  • Chronic rhinitis, throat, larynx and bronchi congestion.
  • Voice exhaustion.
  • Allergic diseases of the upper respiratory tract.


  • Fever
  • Tuberculosis
  • Severe cardiorespiratory failure
  • Allergy to iodine or any of the ingredients

The inhalation brine from Zabłocie is subject to particularly careful process of cleaning from suspensions. Spraying brine promotes humidifying and cleaning the room of pollen and allergens. Traditionally the brine is used by leaving a small amount of the water to evaporate in an open vessel in confined spaces where the members of the household spend the most time. This is beneficial for the upper respiratory tract, followed by reduction of airborne allergens and increased saturation of iodine and other essential trace elements at a concentration greater than by the sea.

It is recommended to dilute brine in boiled water in a ratio of from 1:3 to 1:5.


Brine bath

Brine from Zabłocie for therapeutic baths is sodium chloride water, which also contains ions of iodine, potassium, bromine, magnesium, calcium. During brine bath in warm water our pores widen and we get rid of the toxins and absorb the minerals from the bath. Brines have a number of therapeutic applications: they improve skin condition, equalize blood pressure, stimulate metabolism, boost immunity. They are also recommended for people suffering from diseases of the respiratory tract and sinuses.

Another great advantage is their effect on the body after strenuous exercise (eg. running, cycling or other training). Salt reduces the sensitivity of sensory and motor nerves, and the pain caused by the effort is less sensible. It also accelerates the elimination of the soreness. Brine bath also has a very positive effect on the motor functions, as it nourishes tendons and attachments. Many spas use brine baths, but we can also successfully prepare a bath at home. It is recommended to take a brine bath twice a week. Its duration is approximately 10 minutes for the first time and progressively longer up to 20-30 minutes. The recommended amount of brine to be added to the bath is from 300 to 1000 ml. Brine bath is not only a therapeutic treatment, but also a great pleasure.

Benefits of brine baths

The therapeutic effect of brine baths is not limited to the time of the bath itself. It is associated with the deposition of therapeutic substances from the bath on the loose layer of the skin. Therefore, after getting out of the water, do not rinse the body.

Brine bath is used to help cure

  • musculoskeletal diseases (rheumatoid diseases, rheumatism, arthritis, diseases associated with increased muscle disease, orthotics);
  • diseases associated with circulatory disorders (resulting from atherosclerosis or from injuries)
  • neurological diseases (vegetative neurosis)
  • dermatological diseases (seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis),
  • diseases associated with lowered immunity a beneficial effect on beauty and health.


  • the improvement of cell metabolism and faster removal of toxins from the body,

The elements present in the brine


The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes iodine as one of the elements that should be taken in the right amount as essential for the proper development and maintenance of good health. Approximately 38% of the world's population live in areas with varying degrees of iodine deficiency. Iodine is in fact an element that is absolutely indispensable for proper functioning of the thyroid, the gland regulating metabolism and functioning of the nervous system of the human body. It has been discovered that in areas lacking in this element there is mass occurrence of pathological hypertrophy of the thyroid gland, so called endemic goitre. According to current estimates 600 million people worldwide suffer from this disease.

Iodine is a trace element necessary for the human body. Recommended daily intake of this element is about 2 micrograms per 1 kg of body, which means that an adult needs about 150 micrograms of iodine. The body's need for iodine varies in different periods of human life. It is greater during the growth and maturation of young people and in women during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Daily demand for iodine:

  • newborns and infants up to 6 months of age - 40 micrograms

  • infants up to 12 months of age - 50 micrograms

  • children under three years of age - 70 micrograms

  • children aged 4-6 years - 90 mg

  • children aged 7-9 years - 120 mg

  • older children and adults - from 150 to 160 micrograms

Prolonged iodine deficiency leads to serious pathological changes in the body. The thyroid gland suffers from hypertrophy, changing its internal structure and causing the formation of goiter which is not only unsightly, but can hamper breathing and swallowing. If left untreated, over time it may lead to the formation of tumor nodules. In addition, hypothyroidism causes the release of all operations of the body, lack of emotion and mental clarity, hoarseness of voice, swollen eyelids, possible hair loss. Women may have trouble getting pregnant, carrying the pregnancy to the birth and during the birth itself. Children may show signs of mental retardation and growth retardation.

Other functions of iodine in the human body:

  • supports the production of hormones in the thyroid
  • affects the health of hair, skin, teeth and nails
  • helps burn excess fat
  • protects against the effects of radioactive materials

Deficiency of this element is mainly found in mountainous regions, because the greater the distance from the sea, the leser the concentration of iodine in the soils. After some time, deficiencies of this element may lead to:

  • immunosuppression
  • chronic fatigue, lack of desire to live
  • insomnia, reduced resistance to stress, apathy
  • excessive production of estrogen, reduced libido, impaired reproductive function
  • in children, reduced ability to learn, inhibits the growth and physical development during puberty
  • high cholesterol
  • occurrence of goitre

The lack of this element also results in lethargy, tendency to feel cold, dry skin and mucous membranes, hoarseness and weight gain for no reason. Lack of concentration, ability to memorize, hair loss, brittle nails - they may herald a deficiency of iodine.


Has sedative, antidepressive qualities and deepens sleep. Dilates the bronchi, facilitates breathing. It is a component of many drugs against asthma. Lowers blood pressure, regulates the nervous system.


It allows building on calcium and magnesium in bones. It prevents osteoporosis. Increases resistance to cardiovascular disease and improves the processes of oxygen uptake.


It is the building component of bones, teeth and body fluids. It is necessary for the proper operation of the heart and muscles. It lowers cholesterol and is involved in blood clotting. It has anti-allergic effect, reduces allergy symptoms on the skin and the respiratory tract. Its deficiencies are related to osteoporosis.



It is building component of bones, teeth and muscles. Involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and over 40 other biochemical reactions. It has anti-stress and calming effect on the nervous system. Regulates the musculo-nervous balance, prevents muscle cramps. Increases immunity. It is essential for proper regeneration process of the skin. It facilitates the absorption of calcium, vitamin C, sodium, potassium and phosphorus by the body.



It is required for proper heart function. Prevents high blood pressure and reduces it. It is necessary for the proper functioning of the nerves and muscles.
