Having an interest in Tibetan Medicine (particularly Padma 28 Tibetan medicine which I tried for about 3 months but couldn't afford any more) and the Himalayan region, I was surprised to know nothing about the salt as a therapy.
I keep an open mind about any alternative therapy (well, until I hear a lot of reports which are negative, that is).
The therapy sounds interesting. If you try it, and my brief scan of the internet a few minutes ago gave me an overview of this new therapy, I would be most interested to hear about it (even though I live in Australia).
I have FM & chronic inflammation. It appears to be very good for inflammatory conditions according to the internet - not that I could try it as we don't have any salt caves built using this product (as far as I know).
As long as it's not too expensive, I'd give it a go. It can't do any harm that I can see.
As for eating it. I believe the test is:
Put a tablespoon of any salt your wish to test, in a glass of water overnight & if it is disolved the next morning, it is supposed to be assimilated by the body easily.
I tried this test with the 2 different salts I had at home.
The Maldon Sea Salt (which is quite expensive) dissolved completely, but the Organic Celtic Sea Salt from France didn't dissolve - there was a grey/black residue on the bottom of the glass of water.
I don't know what to think now. Is my wonderful tasting organic celtic sea salt good or not?
Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
