Himalayan Sea Salt...Just in Time for Spring!
Himalayan sea salt has numerous health benefits including detoxification and balancing properties and promoting a healthy libido. It is also rich in 84 of the 92 trace elements found in the plasma in our blood. Himalayan sea salt occurs naturally in beautiful pink hues that truly set Himalayan Sea Salt apart from other salts and health products. The beautiful pink color is one of my favorite things about Himalayan Sea Salt!
While the health benefits are numerous, for the purpose of this post, I will focus on Himalayan sea salt's respiratory benefits as allergy season is among us!
Himalayan sea salt boasts antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. It also acts as an antihistamine which is important to combating allergy symptoms. The dreaded stuffy and runny nose, sneezing and watery eye symptoms some of us experience during the Spring are caused by histamine - a natural substance produced by our bodies in response to allergens or stress.
Himalayan sea salt's antihistamine effect can help quell these symptoms just like many over the counter allergy medications do, but, without out the chemicals or side effects! Himalayan sea salt's antibacterial and antiviral properties will be important to helping prevent these histamine-activated symptoms from advancing into sinus infections or further respiratory complications.
Salt's absorbent nature allows Himalayan Sea Salt to act as an expectorant. When it enters the sinuses and lungs, it is able to remove problematic mucus and shrink swollen membranes thus opening our airways for easy breathing.
Himalayan sea salt is a natural, side-effect free allergy remedy! You can reap these benefits by using a Himalayan sea salt inhaler. These inhalers contain dry salt that can be inhaled through the nose or the mouth. Check out the inhalers available on Amazon.com. So what are you waiting for? You might as well give it a try! You have nothing to lose - except your allergy symptoms!
