It May Help You Breathe Easier.
The benefits of a salt cave and salt room include an alternative medicine technique called halotherapy, which can help reduce the symptoms of many respiratory diseases. How? The negative ions in salt particles can help purify the air and increase lung capacity. Other potential effects of halotherapy include:
Help reduce inflammation and reduce mucus production, making breathing easier.
Potential relief for those suffering from asthma, allergies, chronic sinus congestion and COPD.
Protection against the flu is possible since the salt also has antifungal and antiviral properties.
No matter how great the benefits of Himalayan salt may be, a trip to a salt room is not a cure or a substitute for going to the doctor. But if you just want to breathe a little better in the afternoon, it might be worth a try.
