Properties of Salt

Why Salt?

Due to the fast growth of technology and environmental pollution, more and more people suffer from allergies, asthma and other civilization generated diseases. Outside air in cities and even mountain microclimates are weak in iodine and other important elements for our health. Dust, cigarette smoke, modern convenient electrical appliances such as TVs, computers and high-voltage networks produce large quantities of positive ions creating electrical imbalance in the air, and our bodies.

When negative ion concentration is lowered, people inhale more positive ions from the air. This can cause headaches, lethargy, dizziness, nausea, depression, indigestion, and irritability. It is extremely important to add negative ions back into the air for optimal health. The antibacterial influence of negative ions in the air has been proven beneficial in hospitals by their choice of increasing the concentration of negative ions in the air. The percentage of harmful bacteria in the air was significantly lowered, causing patient wounds to heal faster and the convalescence time of the patients to shorten. People who were exposed to higher levels of negative ions in the air indicated these positive results: achieving optimal weight, decrease of blood pressure, increase of energy and stamina.

The Uniqueness of the Salt Cave

The salt cave creates a sealed environment where the negative ions are disbursed in the atmosphere and absorbed by the body via the skin and the respiratory system. Apart from the advantageous negative ionization, the air in the salt cave includes sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, bromine and iodine. These minerals have a positive influence in the treatment of such diseases as, respiratory illnesses (asthma, allergies, chronic inflammation of lungs, sinuses, emphysema), cardio vascular diseases, digestive disease (colitis, gastric ulcers), dermatological conditions (acne, psoriasis, dermatitis), and nervous system malfunctions (stress, rapid breathing, inability to concentrate).

Using the Wieliczka model our Salt Spa will be identical in terms of physical, chemical and biological conditions that are present in the mine, which creates a positive effect on health.
