SALT THERAPY BENEFITS
The negatively charged ions in salt improve our immune system and boost our mood, reducing chronic fatigue and stress. Salt can destroy the irritants that prevent optimal well-being.
Positive ions radiate from such sources as our mobile phones, computers and even fluorescent light bulbs. All of which, we are exposed to every single day and unfortunately, we cannot avoid them completely. We are exposed to these ions daily and can cause some significant health risks. It has been known to negatively affect the health of your respiratory system and can even affect your immune system. This is because positive ions are so small they are absorbed directly into your bloodstream simply because of the air you breathe. An excess of positively charged ions in your environment is believed to have a direct effect on your mental health too. With some studies showing it to have a direct effect on your bodies tiredness and a lack of energy and an increase in tension, anxiety, and irritability.
“The action of pounding surf creates negative air ions and we also see it immediately after spring thunderstorms when people report lightened moods, “says ion researcher Michael Terman,” Ph.D., of Columbia University in New York. In fact, Columbia University studies of people with winter and chronic depression show that negative ion generators relieve depression as much as anti-depressants.
Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, Ph.D. Those who suffer from SAD, seasonal affective disorder or non-seasonal depression has also been shown to be improved with negative ion, salt therapy. Negative ions reduce depression, improves mood, reduces anger, anxiety, and improved performance.
Research shows that negative ion exposure increases cilia (the tiny organelles that keep airborne particles from passing to the lungs) activity in the trachea. Positive ion exposure inhibits that. If cilial activity is inhibited, as in cystic fibrosis, more foreign particles are introduced into the lungs. Which is why those with asthma greatly benefit exposure to negative ions.
Salt rooms provide an allergen and pathogen-free environment, giving the lungs an opportunity to heal. Also known as halotherapy, salt therapy is a modern variation of the Eastern European tradition of spending time in natural salt caves for health, discovered in the 1800s. Inhaling particles reduces inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The symptoms of the basic cold, congestion or flu will be alleviated with salt therapy.
Halotherapy is recognized as a safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is not a medical treatment and does not offer a cure! Halotherapy is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, and active tuberculosis.
Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before using halotherapy. Anyone with serious health concerns needs to seek proper medical advice and care. There are many clinical studies and research, as to the health benefits and efficacy of salt therapy.
