How is the healing action effected?
Sodium ions are known both in the professional literature and by the majority of practicing clinicians as the main stabilizer of cellular membranes at the level of the respiratory epithelium. The presence of the sodium ion causes bronchial secretions and those of the upper respiratory passages to flow more easily by quantitatively increasing the membranous transference factor. Ciliary mobility becomes active (even in cases of chronic smokers, for whom, it is known, this mobility is restricted), causing the swift removal of secretions from the respiratory passages. The sodium ion reduces distension of the upper respiratory passages (the palate, the base of the tongue, the hairs of the
