Acne • Psoriasis • Eczema • Atopic Dermatitis
It is estimated that over 10.7% of the U.S. population has eczema, and 6% of the population has atopic dermatitis according to a population-survey based study in 2007. These skin conditions have been recognized as major health problems, not only in the United States, but also worldwide, where it is believed that up to 30% of the population has some form of skin disease.
Eczema and psoriasis are expensive to treat due to their un-curable nature, and a topic of great sensitivity among those who bear it on their skin. Salt therapy clears up chronic skin diseases and kills bacteria that may inhabit the skin. Some people have compared the natural skin clearing effect of salt therapy to that experienced when basking in the sun or being exposed to salty ocean air for an extended period of time.
Research on the efficacy of salt therapy on children with atopic dermatitis showed that 65-75% of patients had “decreased itching, reduced linchenification, increased skin clearance, improved skin tone and turgor, and restored protective properties after completing a course of halotherapy treatments.”
