Is not uncommon to hear that patients are sent to the ocean by their doctors, in order to recover from respiratory conditions, where they can breath the salty air; and this form of therapy is becoming more common lately, due to the many respiratory affections and allergies happening all year-round. But, what is this salt therapy?
Himalayan pink salt emits negative ions, which are absorbed by the body cells to heal themselves. And not surprisingly, salt therapy is mostly done with Himalayan pink salt, to enhance the effects of this type of therapy.
Salt rooms or salt caves are becoming popular in every major city in the United States and Europe, which are rooms made with salt walls and ceilings, where the patient goes to experiment a form of relaxation, while breathing the salt powders coming from the walls; in this way, the patient receives the salt’s therapeutic effects. Breathing salt in its microcrystalline form has antifugal, antiviral, antiseptic, and antibacterial benefits.
Other popular forms of salt therapy are the use of a neti pot (inhaler) to clear the sinuses, or warm socks for earaches. Inhalers help to manage respiratory conditions when used frequently, and usually the inhaler is used through the mouth in slow inhalations.
Some of the benefits of using frequently an Himalayan pink salt inhaler are: Stress relief, mood support, anti-inflammatory, helps immune support, helps respiratory system, sinus support, clears mucus, helps sleep better, and it’s a great detoxifying agent.
