Salt is not just a condiment or an ingredient used in cooking – it can also help you recover from chronic illness, including cancer. This is done through halotherapy, which uses naturally occurring salt caverns for healing respiratory conditions, as well as skin ailments. It is also used to energize the mind and was practiced by monks in Europe for centuries.
Halo is the Greek term for “salt.” Salt therapy traces its origins to Europe. In the 1840s, a Polish occupational health doctor, Felix Bochkowsky, noted that salt miners were healthier than the average person, as well as their counterparts in the metal and coal industries.
