Naples, FL, July, 14, 2009 (NEWSWIRE.NET) – Salt Cave Inc. (, Florida distributor of Himalayan crystal salt has announced that this August, their Salt Cave is opening to the public in Naples, Florida, with further plans to open branches throughout the United States.

The curative effects of the Salt Cave lie in the anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties of Himalayan crystal salt.

Himalayan Crystal Salt is more than mere salt: it is the energy of the primal sea, the Earth, the Sun, and the stars. Once sought by emperors, kings, and sultans, natural crystal salt is believed to be a panacea: it has been known and used as a holistic remedy for centuries.

“We are witnessing a spiritual evolution and are part of a shift in awareness embracing the return to natural, holistic methods for living and caring for our bodies. Within this shift, people everywhere are reconsidering the healing effects of natural crystal salt,” states Andrea Geresdi, owner of Salt Cave Inc.

Salt in its original form, as it has crystallized in the Earth for millions of years, has nothing in common with refined table salt. Wholesome, natural salt is an essential mineral supplement, full of ionic trace elements in colloidal form. Table salt on the other hand is nothing more than sodium chloride with additives: a substance that, through industrial processing, became one of our worse enemies.

In modern spiritual circles, salt is said to enhance good will, elevate moods, and diminish negativity. It can assist in dispelling feelings of abandonment and incite initiative and independence. Himalayan crystal salt is also known to stimulate and preserve the acupuncture meridians. According to the metaphysical explanations, the resonant vibration of crystal salt activates our self-healing and self-regulating powers. When our body is sick and lacking its natural frequency, salt can bring us back into our original, balanced state.

On a physical level, salt has many functions in our bodies. Based on the research of Dr. Batmanghelidj, M.D., salt is not only essential for regulating the water content in the body, but also for the generation of hydroelectric energy in all cells, the communication and information processing of nerve cells, the absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract, and extracting excess acidity from inside the cells, particularly the brain cells.

He further explains that salt is also vital for the kidneys to clear excess acidity and pass the acidity into the urine, for maintaining muscle tone and strength, for making the structure of bones firm, and for maintaining sexuality and libido. Salt helps balance the sugar levels in the blood; it is effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and, contrary to the misconception that it causes high blood pressure, it is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure in conjunction with water. Based on numerous studies, salt also increases quality of energy, sleep, concentration levels, nail and hair growth, and weight loss.

Even the smallest, simplest processes in the body need salt or its innate elements in ionized forms. Salt has the same fundamental importance for our life as water; we could not survive without either of them.

With the increasing exposure to pollutants in the air we breathe in, also in the water we drink and shower with, it is not a surprise that respiratory and dermal diseases are on the rise. Prescription drugs will help suppress the symptoms, but the microbial resistance to drugs makes conventional medical treatment more expensive and at times unsuccessful. However, respiratory and skin infections can be treated quite effectively with an entirely drug-free physical therapy. Those who have turned towards the natural solutions of alternative medicine have been experiencing fascinating results from salt therapy, also called Halotherapy.

Halotherapy [“halos” in Greek means salt] is a completely natural treatment with no side effects. It takes place in a dry, sterile, and hermetic environment that recreates a natural microclimate identical to ancient salt caves and salt mines. The benefits of salt therapy are well-known and documented in Europe.

Throughout the therapy, salt aerosol is constantly scattered into the air for the patients to breathe in. The salt aerosol consists of tiny and dry salt particles which are ground in a special salt generator. These aerosolized microparticles can penetrate into the deepest regions of the lungs and deposit upon the surface, destroying bacteria and fungi.

Halotherapy is a modern version of Speleotherapy [“speleo” in Greek means cave] that utilized actual salt mines as the setting for the therapy. Salt mines and their therapeutic properties have been noted since Hippocrates. According to the old scripts, the medieval monks took the sick to the salt caves and let them breathe in the salt particles, which were created while the monks were crushing the stalactites.  

Since the natural salt caves and salt mines are not conveniently located for most people, researchers and scientist attempted to “bring the salt cave to the people” by developing the halogenerator (dry aerosol salt generator).

“With the help of our salt generator device and tons of Himalayan dry rock salt, we will be able to recreate the very special, healing microclimate of the ancient, underground salt caves”, says Andrea Geresdi, owner of Salt Cave Inc.

This special microclimate was found to be beneficial to those suffering from: respiratory allergies, asthma, sinusitis, pneumonia, bronchitis, metabolic disturbances, viral infections, dermal infections, eczema, psoriasis, stress, exhaustion, neuroses, depression, thyroid problems, cystic fibrosis, snoring, smoker’s cough, and more.

Inside the Salt Cave, visitors can experience the curative and soothing effects of salt therapy while relaxing with calming music and comfortable seating arrangements. The entire room – floor, the walls, and the ceiling will be covered with fine Himalayan crystal salt. Tons of large salt rocks will surround the patients, displayed in wooden crates. The salt concentration of the air in the treatment area will be similar to the consistency of salty air at the beach on an average morning. The Halotherapy sessions will last for 45 minutes.

The healing powers of the Salt Cave are brought to you by Salt Cave Inc., which is a local company, dedicated to finding alternative and natural ways to health. Their Salt Cave will not only be unique, but also a great addition to the growing community of health-related stores and holistic services in Naples. Although the main focus of their business will be the unconventional Halotherapy sessions, they will also offer other therapies and many therapeutic products for sale. These products can be purchased at as well.

Their mission is to help people suffering from various respiratory illnesses, stress, pain, skin problems, and numerous other health conditions with entirely drug-free, natural solutions.

Anyone who craves the pure primal spark of life should visit the Salt Cave and experience the therapeutic and spiritual benefits it has to offer!
