Will Salt Therapy Raise My Blood Pressure?
High Blood Pressure and Salt Therapy
A common question asked regarding halotherapy is the effect of salt on your blood pressure. We see a lot of people who suffer from frequent respiratory issues typically have high blood pressure problems also. High blood pressure can come from stress and/or ingesting too much salt regularly. The significant difference to point out here is that in halotherapy, salt particles enter your airways or are absorbed through your skin, and not ingested. It is much like a day at the ocean.
Consuming too much salt in your digestive tract may pose health concerns for some. However, the salt particles in the air of the salt room are so fine; the amount, if consumed, would not pose a risk to your health. Imagine a day at the beach and swimming in the ocean, a day at the salt room is quite similar, except in a small relaxing room with a spa-like atmosphere.
So How Does Salt Therapy Work?
Salt therapy is 100% drug-free. We have concentrated the positive effects of salt as observed in nature, to bring you this all-natural therapy. Our state-of-the-art halogenerators crush pharmaceutical-grade salt grains and disburse them into airborne particles. As the salt travels through the air and is inhaled, the dry salt naturally begins absorbing allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory system. This is why it is so useful for those suffering from respiratory symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and allergies. It is the purest and cleanest air you’ll ever breathe.
With its antibacterial properties, dry salt can absorb impurities on your skin to benefit conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne accelerating cell rejuvenation.
Your sinuses clear, and you’ll feel and breathe better with clearer air passageways. Just as similar as a day at the beach, but in a controlled environment and a little closer to home.
We always recommend you check with your doctor if you have particular health concerns such as pregnancy or hypothyroidism, kidney disease, or are undergoing chemotherapy. You can also ask us any questions directly regarding your specific condition, and we can help make recommendations or advise you on the effectiveness of salt therapy in your case.
