I have suffered for many years with different forms of dermatitis including psoriasis covering various parts if my body and scalp and have found natural ways to manage the condition through diet and non cortisone creams. During pregnancy my body weakened and I found myself with large eczema patches covering my face and a rare condition called pompholyx on my fingers. After many return trips to the doctors and a lot of money spent, I gave up on GP treatments and I found Himalayan salt. Firstly I soaked my fingers in the salt to help rid the infection then I discovered the salt rooms.
My fingers could be swollen, cracked and weeping and after one treatment the condition was improved – not just a little but like never before. When I first walk into the rooms my fingers burn as I feel the salt working but the pain wears off after minute or so. The infection is gone after one treatment, the fluid from the pustules is drained and the swelling is almost gone. The next day the swelling is totally gone.
With this condition a one off treatment is not enough, though. I need to go on a regular basis to manage it. I bring my kids in with me. They love the play time in there while I get to relax. They are unaware of the health benefits to themselves. My son is sensitive to respiratory infections and my daughter suffers with a small amount of dermatitis also. I have noticed that my sons chest is clearer after treatments and no longer needs as many courses of antibiotics and my daughter is a lot less itchy.
My quality of life has greatly improved after being introduced to the salt rooms.
