A BRIEF HISTORY OF HALOTHERAPY

Halotherapy has been used in Russia and other developed European countries for decades with positive results. In fact, modern-day halotherapy technology was developed in Russia back in the 1970s as a way to reproduce the unique microclimate of naturally-occurring salt caves. Several European countries utilize salt therapy in hospitals for the treatment of various respiratory conditions.

Beginning in the 1800s, a Polish physician began to notice the overall good respiratory health of salt cave miners versus other miners. He concluded that the salt circulating in the air throughout the mines offered positive respiratory benefits. During World War II, survivors hiding within the salt caves of Poland and Germany had notably good respiratory health, as well.

Modern-day halotherapy utilizes a device called a halogenerator, that reproduces the microclimate of salt caves. It is designed to crush sodium chloride into tiny particles, mostly in the 1-5 micron size, and then disperse those particles into the air that the client breathes. It’s important for the salt particles to be very small, in order to penetrate into the deepest parts of the respiratory tract. 

SO, WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT SALT?

The majority of salt found in the earth is composed of sodium and chloride, two critical electrolytes necessary for life. Any imbalances with either element and your body won’t feel so great. In current medical facilities, sodium chloride is used as an IV solution for the treatment of a variety of health conditions. The revered Greek physician Hippocrates, hailed as the “Father of Medicine”, was known to recommend “wet” salt inhalation from salted water to improve respiratory conditions.

Sodium chloride has natural, absorbent qualities that attract water and pathogens. In the respiratory passages, this helps thin mucus, which can be easier to remove by coughing. Salt is also beneficial for the skin. It’s been used as far back as Egyptian times for the treatment of skin wounds. The Greeks recommended saltwater baths for the relief of skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

In the US  healthcare system, the word salt has developed a bad reputation. It’s important to differentiate dietary salt versus the small amount of salt you inhale during a session. For good reason, doctors recommend limiting the amount of dietary sodium chloride, as our American diets tend to have massive amounts of salt. You will not receive anything close to the levels of salt that you get through dietary ingestion. If you have any concerns, please consult with your physician before starting salt therapy.
