Salt therapy or halotherapy is a completely natural, drug-free, non-invasive treatment that alleviates health problems associated with the respiratory system. This includes colds, flus, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, COPD, and a host of other ailments. This is due to salt’s natural anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, as well as, it’s ability to absorb excess fluid from the lungs and move mucus. As salt is inhaled it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria. Skin disorders also improve with exposure to salt therapy benefiting people who suffer from psoriasis, eczema and acne.
When exposure to salt therapy takes place in a Himalayan cave there are further layers of wellness. Himalayan caves provide exposure to over 84 trace minerals such as magnesium which benefits joint pain. The calming and detoxifying effects of a Himalayan cave support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. And the high negative ion environment will improve sleep patterns, increase energy and reduce stress.
