Perhaps you have heard about the benefits of Halotherapy or Speliotherapy (the therapeutic use of salt caves or other forms of exposure to salt air)?
More and more people are starting to report relief from a variety of symptoms from colds to allergies to respiratory problems. The New England Journal of Medicine even stated it is effective as an additional therapy for cystic fibrosis patients!
Miners who work deep below the earth’s surface in the Himalayan Salt mines rarely suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. This is because they spend their days in an environment saturated with negative ions, which Himalayan Salt releases naturally. The air we breath everyday is filled with negative and positive ions and, in order to maintain a healthy living atmosphere, these negative and positive ions must remain in balance. Unfortunately, many of the conveniences of modern life, such as our electronic devices and heating and cooling systems, produce an abundance of positive ions which throw the air we breath completely out of balance. That, in turn, can contribute to the development of allergies, asthma, stress, insomnia and other sleep disorders, sinus and migraine headaches, and a host of other health problems for many individuals.
