Given that most Americans consume far more than their recommended daily intake of sodium, medical professionals have been working overtime in recent years to publicize the perils of a diet loaded with salt. With so many news stories about its connection to heart disease, high blood pressure and other concerns, it's all too easy to forget that salt, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. In fact, this mineral qualifies as an essential nutrient - a compound that we can't produce naturally, but is absolutely vital for long-term health. From a nutritional standpoint, salt helps facilitate the absorption of various nutrients and moderates the body's natural pH levels, among other important functions. However, the benefits of salt for your overall well-being extend far further.
For centuries, civilizations across Eastern Europe and Asia have been taking advantage of the incredible healing powers of this mineral in the form of salt caves, and now you have the option of doing so at Timeless Day Spa.
The therapeutic nature of salt was discovered many centuries ago and documented in several cultures, however the first modern-day research study was conducted by Polish physician Felix Bochkovsky, who published his findings in 1843. He is largely credited as being the first scientist to identify the Solotvino phenomenon: men working in the Polish town’s salt mines, despite their taxing work conditions and poor nutrition, were in excellent health and good spirits. Furthermore, the men rarely, if ever, suffered from colds, lung diseases and other respiratory ailments that plagued the general population. Bochkovsky pinpointed the source of their wellbeing as the salt aerosol they inhaled daily.
Since that discovery, the salt mines of Poland and Eastern Europe have become popular sanitariums, attracting visitors from around the world. But the difficulty of accessing these salt mines, as well as safety concerns and prohibitive costs, sparked the development of halotherapy: treatment in a simulated salt cave.
The former Soviet Union quickly became a leader in developing the technology for halotherapy, and much of the clinical studies conducted on the subject were published in Russian language journals. Salt rooms, or halochambers, are certified as medical devices in Russia. In the last decade, halotherapy has gained credibility and spread to Western Europe, Canada, Israel and North America.
What is a salt cave and how does it work?
Salt caves, as they occur in nature, are cavernous spaces that are coated with a layer of rich, healing salt. In contrast to the seasoning on your kitchen table, authentic salt caves contain this mineral in its purest form, as well as a blend of other beneficial nutrients. The air within the cave itself is heavily saturated with negative ions and essential minerals, and we've sought to recreate this effect in our salt cave. Our space has been expertly crafted with over 10,000 pounds of pure Himalayan salt, which contains 84 other invigorating minerals. The walls and floor are thickly coated with this miraculous mineral. You just have to sit back and relax as this breathtaking atmosphere does the work for you.
During your 45-minute session you may find your throat and nasal passages becoming clearer, as the salt-laden air enters your respiratory system and naturally extracts positively charged impurities. This air also helps counter the internal inflammation that is the root cause of so many health issues especially the most frustrating bronchial conditions.
