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. 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.
However, refined salts hold little weight in terms of healing the human body compared to mineral rich salts. 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. These healing properties have long been recognized all over the world.
Salt Therapy may Help a Host of Winter Ailments.
The cold air triggers lots of health problems such as viral, sore throat, sinusitis etc.
Salt therapy takes the healing properties of salt deep into the respiratory system. It supports and enhances the immune system and provides a natural resistance to disease and reduces susceptibility to colds and flu.
Sore throat: Sore throats are common in winter and are almost always caused by viral infections. A remedy for a sore throat is to gargle with warm salty water to soothe the throat and the infection in the process. Add 1 teaspoon of fine mineral salt or sea salt to approx. 250ml of warm water, gargle the solution and then spit it out. Repeat 4-6 times a day until symptoms subside.
Flu: The common symptom of flu is blockage of nasal passage that creates difficulties in breathing. Treat that stuffy nose with warm salt water.
only rinse when you are symptomatic for the best results.
Salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. Mix 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in 250ml of just warm water to a very clean spray bottle. Spray the solution into nostril . Repeat two times if necessary and treat each nostril.
Sinusitis: The sinuses are cavities in the head,if trapped mucus fills up the sinuses, it can cause a sensation of pressure and provide an environment for the growth of infection-causing bacteria.
Salt water washes help keep the nasal passages open by washing out thick or dried mucus.
Dry skin is a common condition and is often worse in winter. Bathing in warm water enriched with sea salt will hydrate and soften dry skin. Mineral-rich salt bathwater can also help turn rough, dry skin into smooth, soft skin. Salt baths taken regularly may help keep your skin soft, always rinse away any salt that is left on your skin after your bath. Also keep your skin moisturised. by always patting your skin dry and apply a moisturiser within three minutes of getting out of the bath or shower to lock in water and your skin's natural oils.
