Therefore, the method is completely harmless in cases when person must limit salt consumption (hypertension, kidney trouble, etc.).

The viscosity of their mucus samples increases, as does the number of pathogenic microorganisms in them. These side effects subside as the lungs are cleared of mucus. So it is important to make a distinction between such therapeutically essential side effects and other side effects.
