Would You Get Buried in Salt for Your Health?
Many in need of medical care are flocking to a human-made salt cave built in the desert of the United Arab Emirates. Naturopaths and practitioners say this salt can benefit people with ailments that range from difficulty breathing or sleeping, skin infections and stress. The salt was imported from the Polish city of Krakow. In the 1800s, salt miners in Poland reportedly noticed benefits to their skin and respiratory health, which led to the modern practice of halotherapy.
