What Is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin condition, where skin cells grow too frequently over the skin’s surface, causing thickly layered red patches on the skin that can be dry, itchy, and painful. Not only do the skin cells grow quicker, but they go through their life cycle quicker as well.

This means that the patches of callused skin will flake off before growing back and continuing the cycle. It’s usually limited to the elbows, knees, and around your hairline. But over time, certain things can cause bigger psoriasis flare-ups, where the symptoms are worse than usual.

Dermatologists aren’t yet sure where psoriasis comes from. However, they do know that it can be a sign of a bigger issue with your immune system and is most likely a genetic condition.

What Is Dry Salt Therapy?

During dry salt therapy (halotherapy), pure grade sodium chloride is heated, and then crushed, ground, and dispersed by a halogenerator into micron-sized particles.

While in a salt room or SALT Booth®, an individual will breathe in the salt particles, and they will penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli to aid respiratory concerns. The salt that is not inhaled and falls to the skin is ultimately absorbed to combat skin conditions. This is all done while relaxing in a sterile, serene environment, where the temperature and humidity are controlled.

How Does Dry Salt Therapy Help Psoriasis?

Dry salt has multiple benefits, especially its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. This helps to increase the skin’s immune response to bad bacteria. This process also helps to balance your skin’s pH, which affects the growth of new cells, stimulating and growing new healthier cells.

After being treated for some time, dermatological studies have shown remission in psoriasis symptoms in itchy or flaking skin. The salt room or SALT Booth® is also a place of relaxation and stress relief, which can also make a big difference in psoriasis flare-ups, as well as some hormonal and stress-caused skin issues like acne.
