Health Benefits of Salt Therapy or Halotherapy

Salt therapy known also as Halotherapy is a 100% natural, drug-free, safe, noninvasive pleasant treatment using a controlled air medium that simulates the microclimate of a natural salt cave.

 

As an alternative treatment and healing modality, halotherapy has traditionally been found to positively impact three primary health areas centering around the respiratory system, skin issues and mental health or depression concerns.

The high concentration of Negative Ions found in a salt cave and their health benefits

Salt crystal, thanks to its chemical composition, is an ideal source of negative ions, generally recognized as a source for creating a sense of well being.  Negative ions are oxygen atoms charged with an extra electron.  They  are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments such as near waterfalls, at the beach and in a salt cave.

High concentrations of negative ions are essential for high energy and positive mood (Thayer, 1996)[1]. In fact, Marian Diamond, a professor of neuroanatomy at the University of California, Berkeley, has found that levels of negative ions are inversely related to levels of serotonin in the brain. 

The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally they were found to help asthma patients. Later they were discovered to effect Serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and to positively affect reactions to sensory stimuli. The attendant greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well being and enhanced performance of mental tasks.

Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a Microbiologist and experimental Pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishing small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people".
