Salt therapy is also known as halo therapy, which is a recreation of the natural micro-climate found in the salt caves across Europe. In Eastern Europe in the mid 20th century, doctors noticed that salt mine workers suffered very little in the way of respiratory diseases (asthma, bronchitis, coughs, colds, etc) in sharp contrast to the general population. More studies were carried out and the conclusion was that the key was exposure to and the breathing in of salty air. Salt kills bacteria, so reduces infection and inflammation.
Salt therapy benefits adults and children, as well as athletes and animals. It is natural, safe, drug free and there are no side effects. Many people who undergo Salt therapy as a complementary treatment on a regular basis may find relief from a variety of respiratory conditions.
