How does Salt therapy work?
The rich Himalayan Salt, which is the only salt to boast the 84 elements our body consists of, is especially beneficial for respiratory health. Both White Himalayan and Pink Himalayan salt particles have anti-inflammatory properties which open the airways and reduce or eliminate mucus from the lungs.
Salt therapy is based on salt's natural anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory properties and the negative ions it produces. The rich negative ion effect can be felt in nature in places like the ocean, near waterfalls and in pine forests. Our micro climate of negative ions, abundant minerals, and elements packs the benefits of three days at the ocean into a 45-minute session. Currently, we are exposed to a barrage of electromagnetic fields that produce positive ions such as from TV's, cell phones, computers, power lines, appliances, etc. Himalayan salt’s natural production of negative ions benefits the whole-body system and combats the effects of free radicals (positive ions) from our environment.
