Salt therapy has been around for decades, where people flock to salt caves and salt mines to inhale the purified air and heal their many ailments. However, not all people have the time to travel to these caves to enjoy the benefits of pure mineral salts.
Luckily there are other locations where unrefined mineral salts can be mined. One of these is the Himalayas, the peaks of which used to be submerged in seawater that evaporated over millennia and all of its minerals crystallized under the sun to form Himalayan salt.
Himalayan salt is totally different from the bleached and processed table salt that most people use daily; it contains 84 trace minerals, which makes it exponentially healthier than table salt that has been extensively processed, stripping it clean of its natural minerals.
If you don’t have the time or energy to visit salt caves for a dose of healthy mineral salts, you can opt to replace the table salt from your kitchen with Himalayan salt, which has the following health benefits:
Another great benefit you can get from mixing Himalayan salt and water is through salt and mineral baths. They are a great way to relax at the end of the day while simultaneously infusing the skin and body with moisture and minerals. Through the process of dermal absorption, your skin can soak up minerals from the water. Additionally, a warm bath infused with Himalayan salt is great for soothing cramped muscles. The trace minerals found in Himalayan salt, particularly magnesium, are absorbed through the skin, healing damaged muscle, and other soft tissues. Minerals in Himalayan salt also work to fortify bones, skin, and connective tissues that may contribute to body soreness.
Soaking up on a Himalayan salt bath is, for all intents and purposes, an excellent way to detoxify your body. When dissolved in water, Himalayan salt becomes an ionic solution that helps to draw the toxins out of your skin and body, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized to face the day’s challenges.
