Here’s How Salt Caves Are Helping People With Depression and Anxiety

Sure, you might know that a moderate amount of salt does a body good, but you haven’t known the true benefits of salt until you’ve tried out salt cave therapy. Salt caves have been popping up all over the place in the midst of the trend toward mindfulness and relaxation, as well as the realization of Himalayan salt’s incredible health benefits.

You might ask how sitting in a cave lined with walls of salt can possibly help with mental health, though, so let us explain below why you should visit one of these caves if you can.

Here’s how this therapeutic salt cave is helping people with anxiety and depression:

Salt therapy, or speleotherapy, can aid in healing a variety of diseases and promote general feelings of calm and relaxation. One such salt cave that offers this sort of therapy is Asheville Salt Cave located in Asheville, North Carolina. According to their website, salt therapy can heal a broad spectrum of diseases and ailments, such as:

  • respiratory ailments – asthma, bronchitis, congestion, Cystic Fibrosis
  • skin problems – acne, allergies, eczema, psoriasis, rashes
  • arthritis
  • depression
  • digestive complaints
  • ear infections
  • migraines
  • hay fever
  • poor concentration
  • sleep disorders
  • snoring
  • stress
  • frequent viral infections
  • weakened immune systems

While you can find many salt caves throughout the country, the Asheville Salt Cave is the only one that uses all natural materials, creating a unique microclimate much like those you’d find in nature. You’ll find salt rock crystals throughout the cave covering the floor, walls and ceiling, and they do not spray any artificial salt in the cave. The negative ions emitted from the Himalayan salt rock crystals help to restabilize and balance the immune system.  Not to mention, Himalayan salt contains 84 trace minerals essential to our body’s daily functioning, and by immersing yourself in an environment full of this type of salt, your body will absorb all of these important nutrients.

They state that a 45 minute session can be compared to spending 4 whole days at the beach, which pretty much tells you the sheer power of salt cave therapy.

So, how does it work? According to them, here’s a quick summary of what you can expect:

“The secret of salt therapy is simple. By naturally recreating the micro climate of a salt mine, the air in our therapeutic salt cave is intensely saturated with negative ions and when heated to 64 degrees the salt rock crystals in the cave release 84 trace elements and minerals which are essential to our bodies. By breathing in these elements, the body gets in balance and begins to heal itself. Our salt cave will leave you with a newly discovered energy accomplished without medications, through the natural healing process of salt therapy.”

Also, if you’re wondering where their salt comes from, it certainly doesn’t come out of a tabletop salt shaker. They use pure, unrefined, wholesome, natural salt from Polish caves, which means the salt doesn’t contain pollutants, chemicals, or any harmful substances. This type of salt has crystallized over a period of millions of years, but its home underground has left it intact and highly vibrational. Its structure perfectly matches that of the human body’s energy patterns, which makes it wonderful for healing a variety of ailments.

The negative ions in the cave produce biochemical reactions that increase the levels of serotonin in the bloodstream. Serotonin helps to alleviate stress, relax the body’s nervous system, heal depression, and increase energy. The salt present in the cave neutralizes the effects of the harmful positive ions we get exposed to each day from toxins in the air, electronics, and other modern inventions.
