The benefits of bath salts as a natural medicine are well known to all but are too often ignored or overlooked. The fact is that the benefits of this mineral in certain conditions are used to help reduce health problems, treat diseases and even boost the immune system.
In many cases, the importance of using this mineral in our lives is at the top priority of all those who suffer from the effects of a condition. This is because when the immune system is compromised, it becomes vulnerable to more serious illnesses and disease. Allergy sufferers can feel the negative affects when the body's ability to fight against disease is greatly impaired.
One of the best ways to ensure that the benefits of the Dead Sea salt are recognized is for everyone to learn to use it as a natural medicine. For example, it has proven effective in helping to improve skin texture and improve eczema symptoms. It also plays a significant role in treating the respiratory problem known as asthma.
The amazing benefits of Dead Sea salt has also been seen in a major study done by researchers at Israel. They found that those who consume it are far less likely to develop bone cancer and also lower the risk of developing breast cancer and also of getting bowel cancer. They also found that women who consumed this salt were 30% less likely to get uterine cancer.
The research conducted by the Israeli scientists found that those who regularly consume sea salt in the form of a pill, lotion or cream have far less risk of ovarian and colon cancer. When they are exposed to high levels of radiation, they were found to be more likely to die prematurely than people who were not exposed to high levels of radiation.
In a recent report in The Lancet, it was stated that Dead Sea salt can significantly reduce the risk of dying from breast cancer. As the researchers concluded: "These findings are of public health interest in light of evidence that cancers of the breast are linked to exposure to radiation, particularly in the low-dose range that may be triggered by radioactive isotopes". They recommended that increased dietary salt intake is used in the treatment of cancer and recommend a reduction in salt intake that is low enough to be of no benefit.
There is also an increasing number of reports from patients that indicate that Dead Sea salt has helped them reduce or prevent muscle cramps, a problem which is sometimes caused by muscle spasms caused by an irregular heartbeat. The salt helps to ease the pain in the stomach and also the back of the legs.
The findings of the research being carried out by researchers in Israel also show that those who regularly use Dead Sea salt in the form of a cream are far less likely to develop arthritis. Researchers are not sure why the mineral works so well in this area, but say that it could be down to the mineral's content in the salt, which is a good source of calcium.
It should be stressed however that there is little scientific evidence to suggest that Dead Sea salt can prevent the growth of cancerous tumors. Many scientific studies have therefore suggested that in order to have any effect on the development of tumors it is necessary to take active steps in the treatment of the disease.
Another benefit of the Dead Sea salt is that it can help a person feel more comfortable in their own skin. Research suggests that high levels of salt consumption are also beneficial for dry skin, particularly for people who suffer from psoriasis.
Researchers at University College London say that Dead Sea salt can help to protect the body against the harmful effects of chemicals known as air pollutants and pesticides. Many people are now using this mineral to help in the treatments of skin conditions like eczema, as it helps to heal and tone the skin.
The use of Dead Sea salt for a number of health related conditions is now a great way to help the body to function normally. The use of this natural healing agent as a natural medicine is in fact very safe and also increases the good health of the person who uses it.
