Living in today’s world means constant bombardment from Wi-Fi, notifications, emails, and requests. This has had a substantial effect on our bodies, stressing out our systems, resulting in a buildup of positive ions — which could be harmful. Negative ions are beneficial for the human body, while too many positive ions can have adverse effects. Negative ions (oxygen atoms with negatively-charged electrons) are abundant in nature—especially around waterfalls and at the beach. What do these natural environments have in common? Salt.
Encompassing yourself in a salt room environment helps counteract the positive ions created by our wired lives that we’re encountering every day, so relaxation, grounding and getting back to our more peaceful state is the primary benefit of halotherapy.
If done before allergy season or when going into cold and flu season, salt therapy (or halotherapy) can improve the stimulation of white blood cell activity and immune function within the lungs, working as a preventative measure. Many individuals may suffer from long-term coughs that linger for three to four months after a cold, becoming chronic.
Persistent coughs can be caused by a deep dryness in the lungs. Since salt particles are very fine, they can penetrate into deep dry spots. Salt draws moisture from the air into these dry areas, having a healing, relieving, calming effect.
Salt particles can also improve the blood microcirculation of the skin, reduce inflammation, and can kill bacteria and fungi that are present with many skin conditions. Halotherapy can relieve itching while nourishing and moisturizing affected areas, and can be especially helpful for those suffering from psoriasis.
