Salt Therapy is a natural holistic treatment that is meant to be used alongside with other treatments or health related routines in order to provide relief to those that suffer from respiratory diseases and skin conditions.
It is used as a way to maintain good health for those who do not suffer from any symptoms but prioritize a natural healthy lifestyle.
Although salt therapy is common and more established in European countries, it is still considered a fairly new treatment in the United States. There are many studies focused on the effects of salt therapy and how it can be beneficial to those that engage in the treatment. Most studies do not report any negative side effects of salt therapy otherwise known as halotherapy, however, there are some restrictions that have been identified.
Salt Therapy is not recommended for people with the following symptoms:

It is extremely important to know that salt therapy does not claim to cure or heal any type of disease or condition, but rather provide relief from the symptoms of respiratory disease and skin conditions, as well as, strengthen the respiratory system for overall health.
Salt therapy does not claim to work as a substitute or replacement for any medication or prescribed regiment offered by your health care provider or medical doctor.
