Himalayan Salt Therapy

There is a belief in many countries that salt is not all created the same. There are many reasons for this, one of them being that the oceans have grown increasingly polluted over the course of our existence.

Himalayan Salt Crystals is known to be the purest salt on Earth, formed 250 million years ago in ancient oceans, untouched by modern day pollution. In the 1800’s it was a Polish Physician that proved the ionised air in salt mines cured respiratory problems. Since then people have traveled from all over the world to go to Eastern Europe’s healing salt caves. Salt contains approx. 80 mineral elements required by the body.

This makes salt therapy a viable alternative to treat many health complaints about horses and humans. Studies have shown that treatment in a salt room is effective in relieving a variety of respiratory illnesses, including asthma, seasonal allergies, sinus infections and sinusitis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, broken bones, cancer, lame joints and use to relax the muscles.
