What is salt therapy and how can it help me?

A salt lamp is often confused for halotherapy. A salt lamp has benefits, but not all the benefits we actually see advertised come from the salt lamp itself. The {Be} salt room offers is a Haolgenerator. The Halogenerator is what actually puts the salt in the air for us to inhale into our lungs to receive all the benefits advertised.

Benefits of a salt lamp.

A great place for a salt lamp is in your home. If you are a salt lover {like me} having a lamp in every room possible would be best. A salt lamp is a great source of negative ions which reduces the airborne infections. Because the salt lamp attracts water vapors it traps the allergens, mold and bacteria in the air. Another benefit is that it can ease allergy and asthma symptoms. Finally, a salt lamp is a great mood booster and promotes good sleep.

I love Dr. Axe’s article that is referenced many times in this post. It covers TONS of information on how to understand the purpose of the salt lamps and salt therapy. Dr. Axe even covers how to spot a fake salt lamp which is awesome. As a person in the industry it cane frustrating when people say “that does not work”. Usually, my first thought is, “they haven’t actually had REAL salt therapy”. There are companies and businesses out there that have departments solely designated to discern the upcoming trends and maximize on their existence. So, yes, there are companies out there selling salt lamps {fake or not} purely for financial gain, because salt lamps have been “on the rise”. That’s the business world, but that isn’t The {Be}.

Salt lamps make great gifts and introduction to salt therapy for your loved ones that may be hesitant to trying holistic modalities. If you get a fake salt lamp, that won’t be helping them much and that will result in increasing their hesitations. Before you purchase, check out Dr. Axe’s article or give us a call. We would be happy to help you understand what to look for!

Until next time,
