As it is an alternative treatment, halotherapy medical research is not as prevalent, and salt therapy benefits are currently anecdotal and not scientific. That being said, salt is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, and can help with excessive mucus, pathogen agents, digestive issues, depression, skin conditions, and immune system oversensitivity. With all of these properties, it’s easy to see that incorporating salt therapy into your life can help remedy a range of health issues.
A detox foot bath is a foot spa that, rather than using bubbles to soothe away the aches and pains of being on your feet all day, instead uses water charged with positive and negative ions – electrolytes – which draw toxins in your body out through your feet through a process of exchange between the positive and negative ions in your body, and their opposite numbers in the water.
It is this exchange of ions that causes the water in the ionic foot bath to change color, and the color of the water reflects the cause of the toxins.
