Health Links We Recommend
We hope the following links are helpful to you in your search for greater health. These links have been selected with the following criteria in mind: 1) We have tried to select sites that are not primarily for pitching and selling products; 2) We have tried to select sites that, by and large, have reliable information (though we do not vouch for these websites and their information, and encourage you to approach them critically as you would any other information); 3) Generally speaking, these are websites that complement, in some way, naturopathic medicine and naturopathic treatment. Thus there are references to advanced forms of bodywork; psychotherapeutic tools; and sites that can help you advance your knowledge of nutrition. Happy Web Surfing!
- The Salt Cave of Darien is a beautiful and calming sight with amazing health benefits. The inside of the cave is covered with tons of Himalayan salt on the walls and underfoot. A large and beautiful salt brine cascade adds to the beauty and health benefits. The authentic Himalayan pink salt is not just beautiful to see but it has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. Halotherapy, the process of emitting pharmaceutical salt dry vapor into the air, contains 84 minerals/nutrients and it is the purest natural salt for inhalation. Often it is used to treat respiratory ailments and skin irritations thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. This salt also has healthy negative ions which increases the level of the mood chemical serotonin and offsets pollution in the body. Relaxing and rejuvenating with natural health benefits!
