Himalayan salt properties
What is this wonderful healer? And why did it find such wide application in the fight against many diseases? Himalayan salt is a natural mineral, absolutely pure, without any harmful impurities, which crystallizes in the earth for many millions of years. Our distant ancestors were very well versed in the healing properties of Himalayan salt. It is known that the servants of the Buddha, Tibetan monks, began their difficult day by drinking green tea with a pinch of Himalayan salt added to it. This wonderful drink gave strength and vigor for the whole day. And in gratitude for the life-giving properties of such a drink, the monks nicknamed it "revitalizing water." In alternative medicine, Himalayan salt was used in the fight against hypertension, allergies with a different nature of occurrence, diseases of the genitourinary system, diseases of bone tissue, and also treated sore joints. The best healing minds of the Ancient East successfully used Himalayan salt in the fight against skin imperfections, purulent acne, and wounds. So what is the uniqueness of Himalayan salt, what is it about it that makes the human body healthy? The Himalayan salt contains about 84 macro and microelements that are essential for normal human life. Before coming to such conclusions, the crystal was subjected to various scientific studies for a long time over the years. Finally, these studies revealed another phenomenon. The higher the temperature regime affecting the Himalayan salt, the higher the therapeutic effect. Indoors, under the influence of steam, a certain climate is created, which is as close as possible to the purest mountain air. When heated, Himalayan salt releases the released ions. Vapors inhaled by a person penetrate into the blood of a person and have a powerful healing effect. Also, when salt crystals and hot water are combined, an effect is created that does not differ from natural hot springs in its effect on the human body. Hot water, enriched with Himalayan salt, truly becomes magical, killing viruses and thereby curing ailments. Toxins and poisons are released through the open pores of the skin. Blood circulation improves, blood and all internal organs are saturated with oxygen. The addition of Himalayan salt to the water during bathing increases metabolism, and this in turn stimulates the secretion of the gastrointestinal tract. It is also noticed that Himalayan salt charges water ions in a negative direction, which helps to improve the emotional and mental background. All these results led to the fact that in the middle of the 20th century, the first special rooms with the healing vapors of Himalayan salt began to open.
The use of Himalayan salt in the bath
In order for Himalayan salt to really work for the maximum healing effect and have a long service life, a condition is required when arranging such premises. It is important that the humidity is no more than 53%.If the humidity of the room is higher, it must be ventilated. Ideally, the installation of a ventilation system is considered. The best conditions for using the healing effect of Himalayan salt are found in the relaxation rooms of the Finnish baths, where the humidity is stable at 52%. Under these conditions, whole sun beds are made from Himalayan salt, floors are lined, and salt partitions are made. Salt slabs are not afraid of high temperature conditions and can withstand heating over 500 degrees Celsius. In addition, when the salt slabs warm up, the room is ionized, pathogenic organisms die, and the air is disinfected. The interest in this physiotherapy procedure has increased significantly in recent years. Now any self-respecting bathhouse or sauna considers it its duty to use materials containing Himalayan salt in the composition, from decorative panels to whole walls of a room made of medicinal mineral. Himalayan salt is used not only exclusively in the form of slabs or bricks, but also in a variety of forms. Salt is often used in the form of a salt placer. The finer the Himalayan salt format, the faster its ability to ionize the air. Therefore, for these purposes, salt pebbles are often used. Himalayan salt pebbles are small pebbles. They are laid out on the stove. After water is supplied to the stones, a fast and powerful ionization of the air in the steam room occurs. It is important to understand that this method weakens the healing effect over time, as the mineral is depleted. Therefore, the salt pebbles must be replaced with fresh ones.
