How Much Salt Is Too Much?
Forever, we have been told to limit the salt in our diet. First it had to do with high blood pressure and heart disease. Then it moved to auto-immune diseases. “For instance, multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel diseases are only some of the autoimmune conditions that a high-salt intake can exacerbate by overstimulating immune reactions, according to an article in Medical News Today.
And now, according to the same article, “new research in cell cultures and two separate mouse models finds that a diet high in salt reduces tumor growth by altering the function of certain immune cells.”
The good news is that from the standpoint of halotherapy or dry salt therapy salt simply isn’t an issue. The average halotherapy session uses about a teaspoon to a tablespoon of salt for the entire session and across the entire room, cabin or booth. This means that any individual is breathing in much less than this and isn’t really swallowing. So as usual the medical community is undecided or conflicted on the question of salt consumption but if you are a regular user of halotherapy you just don’t have to worry.
