HIMALAYAN SALT INHALER (SALT THERAPY)
The salt is utilised to address respiratory problems and improve one’s overall health. Many people over the years have visited European salt mines (of Himalayan salt) to breathe in the salt-rich air. When the salty air is inhaled, it travels through the whole respiratory system. The antibacterial properties help to purify and detox the lungs and sinuses. Studies have shown that salt therapy is effective for reducing asthma, helping with chesty coughs, improving the respiratory system of smokers, improving skin conditions such as eczema and improving lung conditions in individuals with cystic fibrosis.
If you want to try this therapy in your home, you’ll need a Himalayan Salt Inhaler. This is a jar with a spout. To use, you must put your mouth over the spout and inhale the purifying salt air. Exhale through your nose, and do this for around 10-15 minutes for effective results.
Adding Himalayan salt to your bath (1-2 cups recommended), creates a rejuvenating and detoxing home spa. The salt bath helps to draw out toxins, deep cleanses the skin and cleanses the body energetically. It’s not recommended to not have the bath too hot, just pleasantly warm. It’s also advised to not stay in the bath longer than 15-20 minutes as this amount of time allows for muscles to relax completely; sometimes even to the point of weakness.
One of the simplest ways to gain health benefits from Himalayan salt is to use it instead of the usual refined salt in your salt shaker. Health benefits of Himalayan salt includes aiding in hormone balance for both men and women, supporting a healthy metabolism and is required to make adequate stomach acids.
