How does Salt/Halotherapy work?

● Aside from the already rich Himalayan Salt, which is the only salt to boast the 84 elements our body consists of, a salt generator crushes white Himalayan salt comprised of 99.8% sodium chloride into micron-sized dry aerosol particles that are inhaled.   Pink Himalayan salt particles have anti-inflammatory properties which open the airways and reduce or eliminate mucus from the lungs. Salt/Halotherapy is based on salt’s natural anti-microbial properties and the negative ions it produces. The rich negative ion effect can be felt in nature in places like the ocean and near waterfalls. Our micro climate of negative ions and abundant minerals packs the benefits of three days at the ocean into a 45-minute session. In this day and age, we are exposed to a barrage of electromagnetic fields that produce positive ions such as from TV’s, cell phones, computers, power lines, appliances, etc. Himalayan salt’s natural production of negative ions benefits the whole body system and combats the effects of free radicals (positive ions) from our environment.
