Sea Salt Bath - The benefits
Types of Sea Salt used for bathing
Sea salt bathtime!
Why you should start having Sea salt baths (not to be confused with table salt).
- Sea salt is alkaline, therefore while soaking in it you help reduce the acidity of your body. Disease and infections cannot thrive in an alkaline environment, so this it good!
- Your skin is your largest organ (yes it is an organ), and while you soak, the Sea salt becomes adsorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream, where it promptly helps remove excess lactic acid. Lactic acid is popular in dancers, people that work out or have strenuous jobs. Lactic acid is what makes your muscles sore and painful. When it accumulates in your muscles they will start to feel tight, stiff, and achy. Sea salt will help remove this. Goodbye muscle cramps!
- Sea salt corrects electrolyte imbalance, and strengthens the immune system.
- Sea salt also relieves irritation from skin disorders, especially for those who suffer from psoriasis.
- Relieves arthritis.
- Sea salt baths help improve circulatory function and opens pores.
- Sea salt is a natural antihistamine.
- Sea salts help regulate blood sugar levels.
- For spiritual purposes, Sea salt is very cleansing and excellent at removing negativity and clearing the Aura/energy field. Next time you have a high stress day, or feel burdened by negative emotions from others, take a Sea salt bath. A soak for 30-40 minutes will quickly neutralize your mood! Don't believe me? Try it.
- Sea salt baths are relaxing, pampering, and easily give you that "spa" day at home.
- Health benefits of MSM or Sulfur Supplements and why...
Sulfur is a nutrient found in every living organism. Sulfur is absolutely necessary for good health, but we usually fail to get enough of it, even when eating healthy.
Sea salt is also packed full of minerals that your body will benefit from.
- Sodium and Chloride-benefits nerve function and nutrient absorption.
- Potassium-regulates acid levels in your body.
- Magnesium-assists with energy production.
- Calcium-provides assistance with teeth and bone growth, as well as helps nerve function and regulating the beating heart.
- Sulfur-boosts immune function and detoxification. Sulfur is the 8th most common element in the human body! Every cell contains it.
Trace elements are also typically found in Sea salt, although minute in concentration these work with other minerals to maintain optimal body functioning. Trace minerals include phosphorus, bromine, boron, zinc, iron, manganese, copper and silicon.
