Salt caves may hide the cure for insomnia

The last time we heard salt could be a potential insomnia cure it was mixed with pine extract and added to a bathtub. This time around, you simply breathe it in.

Apparently, salt caves are the next 'big thing' when it comes to relieving your insomnia and improving your sleep naturally. Salt caves are rooms coated in salt from floor to ceiling. Salt is also mixed into the air you breathe when inside the cave. All you need is 45 minutes in the salt cave to experience the benefits of the treatment.

Clients at one spa have claimed that the salt cave has improved their snoring and even cured their insomnia. As for why this may be the case, it's thought that the salt contains minerals that may be missing from some of our diets - particularly potassium, magnesium and calcium.

We have to admit that we're a little skeptical on this one - but if you live close to a spa that offers salt therapy, surely it's at least worth a try?

    I’d say the iodine in commercial salt is what stimulates the thyroid (some folk with thyroid issues have to avoid iodine, and most salt). Sea salt may contain some iodine, I just never asked.

    I do have to go swish some saltwater in my mouth to heal a mouth ulcer.

    Interesting. I have for a long time dissolved 0.5-1.0 tsp of salt in 250mL of warm water for my insomnia. I think insomnia is a lot of times caused by elevated stress hormones. Salt works well to stimulate the thyroid (which brings down stress), relax the RAS/RAAS, and to in general lowers the stress hormones. How much salt you drink depends on how salty the mixture tastes. If it tastes not salty then you should drink more. The first time I did this I slept for 12 hours solid. The same thing works great if you have RLS (restless leg syndrome) symptoms.

    Drinks like coffee,tea, and even soft drinks like coke and pepsi have a stimulant ”caffeine” in them which can mess with sleep. Its best to avoid these drinks at night.

    It worked for me.

    Maybe an inhaler would work as well, had it vapor of those salts–not that I have a clue how to make that happen!
