Himalayan Salt Cave Benefits

Himalayan Salt Cave Benefits

Himalayan Salt Cave therapy is also known by its scientific name halotherapy, which comes from the greek word “Halo”, meaning salt. Himalayan Salt Cave Therapy evolved from Speleotherapy, which is prolonged exposure to underground salt caves and mines. Many countries have been using salt cave therapy for over 100 years. Himalayan Salt Cave therapy involves spending 2-3 hours every day underground in a salt cave for 2-3 weeks. Halotherapy replicates the Himalayan salt cave environment but only requires 45 minutes to achieve its therapeutic results.

The reason it takes less time is because unlike a salt mine, a Halotherapy room is conveniently located in a controlled environment. We have the ability to change the amount of concentration of salt in the air, humidity levels and temperature range. The concentration of pure pharmaceutical grade salt in the room can be adjusted to a level appropriate to individual conditions. The Himalayan salt cave benefits for the body are wide-ranging.

While everyone is different and everyone will have a different experience, there are many possible health benefits of halotherapy and halotherapy has been known to help treat a wide range of illnesses. The list of Himalayan salt cave benefits includes:

  • Relief from chronic pulmonary diseases (asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis)

  • Increased immunity against the common cold and flu

  • Relief from rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis

  • Relief from allergies to household and industrial pollutants

  • Diminished multi-chemical sensitivity syndrome

  • Stimulation of carbohydrate, protein and water exchanges

  • Improved synthesis of enzymes, reduced blood sugar

  • Improved blood microcirculation

  • Improvement in skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, hives and rashes

  • Improvement in skin oil secretion and skin inflammation (acne and rosacea)

  • Elimination of snoring and better sleep overall

  • Decrease in fatigue, stress related conditions, anxiety and depression

  • Enhanced concentration capacity and improvement in ADHD condition

  • Increased activity of metabolic processes

  • Feeling of freshness, relaxation and satisfaction

While medications are useful for chronic diseases they can cause long term or permanent side effects. Continuous drug therapy is associated with the possible development of allergic or toxic reactions, development of antibiotic resistance, imbalance of intestinal bacteria, and overgrowth of yeast. Steroids used for breathing and skin problems can also affect growth in children, lower bone density, contribute to cataracts, glaucoma, and bruising.

Halotherapy may play an important role in the prevention and treatment of common colds. The best time to treat a cold is at its onset. Halotherapy treatment at the first sign of cold symptoms helps to eliminate or reduce mucus and inflammation of the respiratory system. This helps stop the cold without medications and reduces prescription drug use. This is especially important for children and adults with asthma since the common cold is a trigger for asthma.
