Halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, is quickly becoming an important form of holistic therapy modalities because of its many benefits. Halotherapy was first used in the 1960s in Europe as a form of respiratory treatment for those suffering from breathing ailments. Today, salt therapy offers people around the globe the opportunity to experience a relaxing and restorative environment while potentially improving the function of three of our most critical bodily systems.
- Immune – Your immune system is what keeps you well by fighting off disease and maintaining a balance within your cells at the molecular level. Any immune imbalance can cause someone to experience anything from mild discomfort to a major illness. Halotherapy may help the body naturally restore its immune system balance for health and wellbeing.
- Nervous – The nervous system is responsible for communicating a vast variety of things with the rest of your body, including your brain. Connected to other systems within the body, such as the respiratory system, nervous system malfunctions can be difficult to manage if they present any sort of ongoing challenge. Halotherapy has been known to reduce respiratory systems that can be directly connected to a nervous system response to stressors.
- Lymphatic – When it comes to naturally ridding your body of unwanted germs, the lymphatic system is always hard at work. Lymph fluid is transported throughout the body as a primary mode of infection-fighting power. Halotherapy supports this system because salt contains anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial properties, helping the body naturally fight away toxins.
Of course, each of these bodily systems works together, and therefore halotherapy may improve all three systems as part of a holistic therapy regimen.
