Contraindications (World Salt Association)
Halotherapy is recognized as a safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is not a medical treatment and does not offer a cure!
There have been a number of clinical studies and research on halotherapy, and, to date, there are no known contraindications otherwise than what has been recommended based on the properties of sodium chloride, as well as in health code situations in public environments, people with any type of:
•Active tuberculosis•Contagious conditions•Late stage lung cancer•Acute issues & fever•Open wounds & sores•Cardiac insufficiency
We understand more studies are needed to understand if there are any further contraindications, but we can confidently say that thousands of individuals have experienced salt therapy throughout the decades, and none have suggested the contraindications were present. We also encourage individuals to consult their local physician before beginning any regiment of dry salt therapy. Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before using Halotherapy. Anyone with serious health concerns needs to seek proper medical advice and care.
