Minera dead sea salts are harvested from the southern Dead Sea. In this region the mineral content of the waters is at its highest. Our salts are completley unprocessed and come to you in their raw form, ensuring that the product you receive retains all of its theraputic mineral content. For this reason you may find that your salts sometimes vary slightly in color and are off white - this is good.
Important note: Beware of processed or washed dead sea salts. Although technically they are still dead sea salts, many of the salts sold today have infact had many of the important minerals processed out for other applications, leaving you with a product no much more theraputic than table salt, and contaning none of the Dead Sea benefits. These salts are usually a bright white ? this is bad.
CHEMICAL BREAKDOWN AND EXPLANATION OF BENEFITS:
Dead Sea Salts contain 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, sulphur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium. The following table details some of the healing properties of these minerals:
Magnesium: Promotes healing of skin tissue and provides skin surface with anti-allergic element. Essential for cell metabolism.
Bromide: Soothes skin, relaxes body muscles, and tranquilizes nerves.
Iodine: Important for the correct functioning of the thyroid gland and is an important factor in the body's metabolic exchanges.
Sulfur: A natural disinfectant (constituent of certain vitamins).
Potassium: A moisture regulator that helps maintain a neutral environment in the skin.
Calcium: A building block for corrective tissue under the skin surface.
Sodium: Relieves stiffness and muscle cramps and maintains neutral environment in the skin.
Zinc: A key factor in enzymatic regulation of cell proliferation.
So what does this mean to you? In simple terms dead sea salts have been effective in treating the following conditions:
Psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, dandruff, scabies and seborrhea are but a few of the unpleasant skin disorders suffered by Americans today. Psoriasis alone is said to affect 3% of the population to some degree. Treatment of these conditions often involves the use of creams or lotions such as steroids or coal tar derivatives. These treatments are not always effective and can have harmful side effects, therefore they are not ideal for long term continued usage. Research has proven that regular soaking in dead sea salt can provide relief from these unpleasant skin disorders without any side effects (see spa therapy treatments). In fact, Dead sea salt has been recommended by the international psoriasis community and the National psorasis foundation as an effective alternative treatment.
Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, bursitis etc. have all been effectively treated with Dead Sea salts and Dead Sea mud. Either as a bath treatment or by applying hot mud in various ways, the Dead Sea minerals absorbed have provided effective relief from joint swelling, soreness and stiffness. This is due to the minerals improving blood circulation necessary to reduce the inflammatory response, together with the detoxifying agent and general muscle relaxant. Also when the mud or salt has been heated, the ability of the elements to penetrate and be absorbed into the system is increased.
At some stage in our lives we all have suffered from rashes, sores, hives, itching, contact dermatitis or some form of allergic reaction. The high magnesium and bromide content in Dead Sea Salt is beneficial as an anti allergic due to its cleansing and detoxifying of the skin.
Stress has become a symptom of modern day life. Most of us can deal with small amounts of stress comfortably, however too much stress can affect physical & mental well-being. Symptoms can include increased heart rate; elevated blood pressure;; tightness of the chest, neck and back muscles; headache; sleep disturbances; fatigue; susceptibility to minor illness, irritability and depression, to name but a few. Dead sea bath salts and mud treatments offer wonderful relief of these symptoms by increasing circulation and detoxification by removing the by products formed during the stress cycle, thereby freeing your cells from these toxins
It is estimated that 25% of Americans suffer from insomnia. Prolonged sleep disturbance can leave you feeling tired and run down, which in turn can lead to greater vulnerability to illness and disease. To assist with relaxing in order to fall asleep and to remove toxins, the Dead Sea bath salts and mud treatments can be very beneficial.
Please note it is always important to consult your doctor before using ANY new treatment.
