ForeSights: Salt Therapy – An old-fashioned, non-invasive treatment enjoying a renaissance as a new health and wellness solution

Summary

Salt therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses aerated salt or a salt bath to deliver health and wellness benefits. It comes in two forms: dry salt therapy (halotherapy) and wet salt therapy (flotation therapy). Both forms of salt therapy are claimed to promote relaxation and rejuvenation.

Salt therapy is an old-fashioned, drug-free treatment leveraging the claimed natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of salt that capitalizes on growing interest in complementary and alternative medicine.

Scope

– Dry salt therapy (halotherapy) takes mineral-rich salt and grinds it into a fine powder that is dispensed into the air to create an environment that mimics that of a salt cave.
– Inhaling salt is believed to provide respiratory benefits by thinning mucous which makes breathing easier. Aerated salt may also benefit the skin.
– Floatation therapy (wet salt therapy) involves floating in a small tank, tub, or pod filled with water and Epsom salt.
– Floatation therapy (also called float therapy) can provide a feeling of relaxation, pain relief, and stress relief – even inducing a meditative state in some cases.
– Dry salt therapy is believed to provide relief from respiratory ailments including asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, and COPD. It may also help relieve chronic skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
– The economics of salt therapy are compelling, largely because labor and material costs are low. Salt therapy takes place in sessions that typically run around 45 minutes.

Reasons to buy

– Provides an early warning system for emerging trends, threats, and opportunities in fast-moving consumer goods.
– Drives analysis of potential future consumer behavior.
– Generates ideas and inspiration for new product development.

Parkinson’s Disease and Behavioral Complications: PD Therapies Dominate First-in-Class Pipeline, with Novel Target Classes Demonstrating Potential Disease-Modifying Effects

Parkinson's Disease and Behavioral Complications: PD Therapies Dominate First-in-Class Pipeline, with Novel Target Classes Demonstrating Potential Disease-Modifying Effects Summary Parkinson's disease (PD), a progressive neurological disorder that affects movement control, is associated with considerable quality of life impairments and burden of care, particularly in the advanced disease stages. Cognitive and behavioral complications of PD are common. PD-associated dementia and PD-associated psychosis are both highly prevalent and associated with a large disease burden. There is a pressing unmet need within PD, PD-associated dementia, and PD-associated psychosis for more effective disease-modifying pharmacotherapies. Although current therapies can provide patients with symptomatic relie......

Hepatitis B: Competitive Landscape to 2027

Hepatitis B: Competitive Landscape to 2027 Summary Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver that can become chronic in young children, especially newborns to mothers with HBV infections, and people with compromised immune systems. Chronic hepatitis B is defined as measurable Hepatitis surface antigen (HBsAg) levels for more than six months after an acute infection. Despite the existence of prophylactic vaccines, hepatitis B remains a global public health threat, with approximately 257 million people worldwide living with chronic HBV infections. Chronic hepatitis B cannot be cured and patients have elevated risks of developing liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This report provides an assessment of the pipeline, clinical, and commercial landscape of Hepatitis B. Ov......

Pediatric Vaccines: Epidemiology Forecast to 2028

Pediatric Vaccines: Epidemiology Forecast to 2028 Summary The administration of a vaccine, referred to as vaccination, elicits an immune response that prevents an individual from developing a specific disease when exposed to the corresponding infectious agent in the future. A successful vaccination results in immunization, where the individual is deemed immune to the disease. Routine immunization programs aim to protect children at an early age, when they are the most vulnerable to disease. Prior to the discovery of vaccines, several infectious diseases claimed the lives of millions of children each year. GlobalData epidemiologists utilized comprehensive, country-specific vaccination rate data from nationally representative public health surveillance systems and databases to arrive at ......

Ulcerative Colitis: Epidemiology Forecast to 2026 – Update

Ulcerative Colitis: Epidemiology Forecast to 2026 - Update Summary Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by long-lasting inflammation and ulcers (sores) in the lining of the colon. UC is limited to the colon and has less frequent complications. GlobalData's epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed incidence, diagnosed prevalence, undiagnosed prevalence, and total prevalence of UC in the 7MM is supported by nationally representative, country-specific studies published in peer-reviewed journals of national healthcare databases and registries. In addition, to improve the comparability of the forecast diagnosed incident and diagnosed prevalent cases of UC across markets, GlobalData epidemiologists used sources that provided uniform diagnostic criteri......

Pain: GPCR and Nerve Growth Factor-Based Therapies Offer Strong Potential in Difficult-to-Treat Subtypes

Pain: GPCR and Nerve Growth Factor-Based Therapies Offer Strong Potential in Difficult-to-Treat Subtypes Summary The pain therapeutics market has been largely characterized by only incremental product innovation over the last decade, as most market segments continue to be dominated by long-established active pharmaceutical ingredients and mechanisms of action. The moderate-to-severe pain space continues to be dominated by opioids, which are increasingly being reformulated to offer abuse resistance, whereas mild pain is effectively treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, significant unmet needs remain, as chronic pain subtypes-particularly neuropathic pain-do not respond well to existing therapies. This report assesses first-in-class innovation across the pai......
