Psoriasis & Eczema
Halotherapy has been proven to have a multidimensional positive effect on various forms of dermatitis, including acute symptoms of acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Depositing on open skin areas, haloaerosol increases activity of skin ion channels, stimulating cell growth and regeneration. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and autoflora, as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation. After a series of treatments, study subjects showed decreased itching, decreased or resolved scaling of the skin, and the drying and healing of small fissures, scratches and exudative symptoms. Skin and respiratory disease are often coexistent, and dermatitis is associated with other issues of the immune system. The effects of inhaled salt particles on the respiratory tract decrease bacteria and improve bronchial drainage, thus decreasing overall toxicity and reducing the likelihood of future outbreaks. The sterile environment and negative ions relax and modulate the nervous system, freeing the body from the stresses of external stimuli and initiating healing and rebalancing. Multiple studies in Russia have shown salt therapy to be effective in the relief of dermatitis symptoms, and of potential long term benefit as part of a total body approach to healing.
