How the Natural Salt Heals
Natural Salt Heals In Many Ways, Ingestion Is Only One Of Them!
The Healing Effect of Salt
For thousands of years salt has been known as a panacea. Alchemists called it “the fifth element” – besides water, earth, air and fire – because its qualities were comparable only to ether, the actual fifth element. Why are we so drawn to the ocean? Because our subconscious mind instinctively wants to return to the specific vibrational state of the ocean from which we once emerged.
This is where we can return to recharge our batteries and regenerate. It was only two-hundred-fifty years ago, with the advent of industrialization, that we initiated our disconnection from nature and her ways. Fortunately, we are witnessing a trend to return back to natural, holistic methods for living and caring for our body, including a shift back to utilizing natural salts in this process. People everywhere are reconsidering the healing effects of natural crystal salt. We can find it in the salt shaker, in skin care lotions and for use as bath salts. It is also used in inhalation or cleansing treatments for illnesses of the respiratory system and for a variety of other indications.
The Neutralizing Effect of Salt
The healing properties of salt are also known in allopathic medicine. The largest and oldest salt works in Europe occupies the royal salt mine of Wieliczka, Poland, just 11 kilometres outside of Krakow. Here, a hospital was carved out of the expansive salt mountain, two hundred twenty metres below the surface, specifically for asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies. Several thousand patients have been successfully treated in this hospital. The healing rate is astonishingly over 90%. Recognition of the healing effects of salt chambers has influenced the construction of a similar underground spa located in the salt mine of Berchtesgaden in Germany. The therapeutic benefits of long – term residency inside the healing salt chambers are allopathically acknowledged. The healing effects were originally thought to be related to the purity of the air within the mine’s chambers. In the early 19th Century, sick people travelled to primitive spas, to soak in salt springs. Today’s more luxurious spas offer salt baths, glows, rubs and polishes to exfoliate dead skin, stimulate circulation and relieve stress.
But if it was only a question of the purity of the air, why was the air in the cave so healthy, and the air above-surface so unhealthy?
One cause has been determined. Our houses are charged with electromagnetic devices, such as TVs, stereos, computers, microwave ovens and the basic electric currents running through our walls. And, when not at home, we hold cell phones to our ears while driving in our cars and walking through our daily lives. This electro – pollution causes an excess of positively charged ions that disturb the balance between the positively and negatively charged particles. Further, it creates an excess of positively charged, chemically unbound particles in the air.
Altogether, a very unhealthy environment to live in.
Yet, using well proven properties of crystal salt as a negative ion generator, our quality of living can be dramatically improved, and… make our place of work and play aesthetically pleasing as well.
