But don’t dismiss salt just yet, because there are different ways it can be beneficial to your health, including through spa treatments at salt caves, Himalayan salt lamps, salt inhalers, and even by using Himalayan pink salt on your food.
Halotherapy, also known as salt therapy are very trendy spa treatments and with good reason. Salt is a mineral that is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal, which can help with respiratory illnesses. Salt levels can affect your cell activity, energy, and blood sugar levels.
