What is Salt Therapy?
Salt is an organic disinfectant, antimicrobial, and antibacterial.
Himalayan Salt has a rich mineral content that includes over 84 minerals; calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. Well known for its therapeutic detox properties, salt also provides essential minerals, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, and balances the body’s ph.
Salt room therapy, otherwise known as halotherapy, is quickly becoming an alternative for many people. Salt room therapy is also used to help alleviate other types of illnesses such as colds, the flu, skin conditions, depression, and more.
The calming and detoxifying effects of Salt Therapy can help support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. The negatively charged ions in salt can help improve our health and mood.
Skin conditions can also be improved with halotherapy (psoriasis, rashes, eczema, acne). The pure minerals in salt have natural moisturizing properties and support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture to the skin. Minerals are necessary for cell function and detoxification, so mineral salts have strong rejuvenating properties
How Does Salt Therapy Work?
As you inhale, the salt particles act to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria that may be present, helping to improve respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Scientific studies show that people with asthma and other ailments breathe easier after Salt Therapy.
