HIMALAYAN SALT CAVE
Himalayan salt has many great health benefits, especially when used with food. Using a Himalayan Salt Inhaler offers an easy, drug-free way to conveniently get many of the multiple benefits of salt-air therapy. This article will discuss Himalayan salt inhaler therapy and the health benefits associated with its use.
Humans have been using salt for therapeutic uses for thousands of years. Anyone who has spent a day at the ocean knows that salt-filled air has something special about it. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, used to steam salt to purify the air and the lungs.
In Europe, the ancient Greeks used what they called Halotherapy (Halo is the word for salt in Greek), for respiratory ailments. Cave rooms full of salty air have been considered therapeutic in countries in Eastern Europe for hundreds of years.
Salt rooms that mimic these salty European caves are popping up in many polluted cities such as New York and London. These salt-filled, salt-lined rooms act as a powerful aid for people affected by breathing-related conditions.
The ancient Ayurvedic and yogic cultures of India relied on salt inhaling therapies to cleanse out the nose and throat areas. Today, the popular neti pot is an example of the extensive use of Himalayan crystal salt to combat harmful organisms. Interestingly, it has been found that workers in salt mines do not develop lung diseases, but actually have extremely healthy respiratory health.
Modern salt air therapy, including Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhalers, combine both the ancient and the modern techniques. Himalayan salt crystals rest in a chamber inside the inhaler.
As you breathe, natural moisture in the air absorbs the salt particles into the lungs, which can help with sinus problems, asthma, the common cold, allergies, hay fever and congestion.
Unlike steroid inhalers and other pharmaceutical drugs, this therapeutic approach offers absolutely no negative side effects.
