    Default Halotherapy - 5 Reasons Salt Is a Powerful Ally In The Winter

    Mineral salts give your body the variety of mineral ions needed to balance its functions, remain healthy and heal. With the onset of winter and sudden drop in temperature, many of us fall prey to sore throats, upper respiratory tract infections and skin-related problems. Halotherapy or salt therapy can actually help alleviate all of these conditions, symptoms and more.

    Too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for many health problems. Even the CDC admitted that there is no benefit, and may be a danger, from reducing our salt intake. However, refined salts hold little weight in terms of healing the human body compared to mineral rich salts.

    Unlike the sodium chloride you find on most kitchen tables, unrefined rock salt contains more than 84 different minerals. Rose-coloured crystals of Himalayan rock salt, or the grey texture of Celtic salt -- both pride themselves on traditional harvesting, avoiding heat treatment or refining methods.

    A friend told me the other day she had just used a neti pot for the first time. She was quite surprised at how effectively it cleared up her sinusitis. Using a salt inhaler didn't have much effect on my breathing, but I might not have kept it up for long enough.

    After you had mentioned it, I bought one and tried it for about 3 months. It never had any effect for me either. I can't use a neti pot because of my neck but I do use a sinus irrigation bottle which works really well too.
