The researches have proved natural aerosol environment in rooms can be created by special medical equipment – halogenerators. Due to the specific way of generation (by the using of disperse method), dry sodium chloride aerosol acquires a negative charge and high surface energy. Due to its’ physical properties haloearosol provides electro-ionic effect on the walls respiratory tract and skin integument. The particles of sodium chloride aerosol penetrate deeply into respiratory tract where they enhance immune defense and provide bronchodrainage, bacteriostatic and anti-inflammatory effect. As a result, recovery and clearance of respiratory tract internal environment occur. Efficiency of this method for prevention and rehabilitation treatment of different respiratory diseases has been proved thus far. Sodium chloride particles have a beneficial influence not only on respiratory system, but integumentary system and hairs as well, providing healing and cosmetic effect. Depositing on open skin areas, haloearosol increases activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines skin protective properties. Research of skin microbiocenos is showed normalization of superficial autoflora composition after administering HT. Also bacteriostatic, antiedematous and anti-inflammatory effect of dry superfine sodium chloride aerosol was confirmed.
