The human body primarily consists primarily of two elements: water and salt. Himalayan salt is contains 84 trace minerals essential to your health. Our bodies maintain a delicate balance of salt and mineral concentrations that are essential for vital functions. Higher concentrations of salt within the surrounding environment can shift this balance to decrease inflammation, enhance immunity, and reduce air-borne pollutants, among many other benefits.
Our salt comes from one of the oldest, mineral rich mines in the world: Khewra Mine. Salt of the Earth works with a well-established USA importer of Himalayan Salt. They take great care to select only the highest quality salt for superior therapeutic properties.
Halotherapy comes from “halo,” the Greek word for salt. Halotherapy uses salt vapor within a controlled environment to simulate natural salt cave conditions.

Yoga helps improve circulation and has proven to help lower blood pressure.
Yoga reduces effects of stress on the body. This can lower heart rate and blood pressure, aid digestion and boost the immune system. It can also ease symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, fatigue, asthma and insomnia. Salt therapy also promotes stress reduction through the production of negative ions to boost the immune system and reduce chronic stress and fatigue.
Flexibility, Strength and Pain Relief
Yoga helps to improve flexibility and mobility, increasing range of movement and reducing aches and pains. Many people can’t touch their toes during their first yoga class. Gradually they begin to use the correct muscles. Over time, the ligaments, tendons and muscles lengthen, increasing elasticity, making more poses possible. Yoga also helps to improve body alignment resulting in better posture and helping to relieve back, neck, joint and muscle problems. Yoga asanas (postures) use every muscle in the body, helping to increase strength literally from head to toe. And, while these postures strengthen the body, they also provide an additional benefit of helping to relieve muscular tension.
Yoga (even less vigorous styles) can aid weight control efforts by reducing the cortisol levels as well as by burning excess calories and reducing stress. Yoga also encourages healthy eating habits and provides a heightened sense of well-being and self-esteem.
The meditative aspects of yoga help many to reach a deeper, more spiritual and more satisfying place in their lives. Many who begin to practice for other reasons have reported this to be a key reason that yoga has become an essential part of their daily lives. The Salt Cave naturally produces negative ions, which produces the “clarity effect” that people love from Salt therapy treatments. Negative ions have been shown to reduce stress, headaches, lethargy, and depression
