Have Allergies or Asthma??? What’s the deal with Salt Caves???
So why would I use a salt cave for my allergies or asthma you might ask. Well, salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy is an amazing healing remedy that has been around for thousands of years. In fact, the first known effects of salt therapy began in a salt mining community in Poland. The townspeople started noticing that the salt miners of the Wieliczka Salt Mine did not exhibit the same pulmonary and respiratory ailments as the rest of the townspeople. Since then, research has proven the many benefits that salt cave therapy has on the body. Some of the most powerful benefits are how the ions in the salt affect the respiratory system. Himalayan salt contains 84 trace elements and minerals that help naturally regulate the body’s functions. Salt is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial in nature, allowing it to fight infections. Inhaling the dry salt air has been shown to break up mucus in the lungs, open the airways and also help to decrease inflammation along the respiratory tract, thus helping conditions like asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Researchers also say that it can help increase lung capacity. The salt is comprised of negative ions that carry electrons. These are absorbed by the body to help fight the effects of free radicals and are also used by the cells to create energy that help the body heal.
The Himalayan Salt Cave at Whole Body Health consists of thousands of blocks of Himalayan salt covering its walls and approximately 8,000 pounds of crushed salt lining its floor. The room is roughly 13 by 18 feet and will hold up to 8 people relaxing in reclining chairs per session. The salt floor will be heated, thus pushing the ions and particles into the air to be absorbed and inhaled. In addition, the floor will be grounded to allow for the natural energy produced by the Earth (electromagnetic field or EMF) and the salt to be absorbed into the body. It’s basically like plugging in and charging your cell phone’s battery, except in this example, you are the cell phone. This energy is the exact frequency that the body uses to heal, which makes it extremely effective. The salt cave will have many uses ranging from individuals just coming to relax and breath in the air to individuals utilizing state of the art natural healing frequency generators specifically programmed to provide the exact energy frequency that biofeedback testing has determined they need to heal. In addition, Whole Tones Music will be played in the cave at frequencies known to promote healing.
Salt cave therapy is especially important during allergy and cold/flu seasons to help give the immune system an extra boost of energy along with the many benefits of natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties in the salt.
