Halotherapy: The Oldest New Therapy

Modern halotherapy, sometimes called "Dry Salt Therapy", has been around for almost 200 years and has been around in various forms since some of the earliest civilizations. And yet, research has just shown its incredible benefits. Regardless of why the American medical community has taken so long to accept it, halotherapy is safe, effective, dynamic in its application, and relatively simple.

Halotherapy made its first major debut in modern medicine when Felix Bochkovsky, a Polish health official, made the connection between the constant exposure of salt mine workers to powdered salt and their remarkable health. Still not fully understanding why exposure to aerosol edited sales leads to healthy living, thousands of people engaged in early forms of halotherapy by visiting and spending time in these natural salt caves.

With modern science and research, we now know why halotherapy is so beneficial. And because we know which aspects lead to benefits, we can recreate these effects in more controlled and accessible halotherapy rooms, or artificial salt caves.

Research has shown that it is not the glowing environment or the pink-orange Himalayan rock salt-covered walls that create the health benefits (although we can all agree that those aspects add to the relaxing atmosphere) but rather purely medicinal aerosol inhalation. grade sodium chloride. In our next article, we will discuss the details of the effects of salt on the respiratory system and the integumentary system (the skin system, which could be the least appreciated organ system).
