5 benefits of sea water

The medical use of sea water began in the 4th century BC, when the word "thalassotherapy" {by the words thalassa (sea) and therapy} was first coined by Hippocrates. Since then, science, but also our personal experience, has shown what significant benefits the sea can offer to our health, such as:

  1. Swimming in the sea promotes good blood circulation due to the high concentration of minerals. It increases circulation by replenishing key metals that have been depleted by various factors e.g. poor diet, stress, sedentary lifestyle and work, etc.
  2. Sea water helps in the natural exfoliation of the skin as it washes away dead cells from the skin, thus restoring its firmness and radiance, leaving it softer and healthier
  3. The sea has been shown to seriously reduce stress in our lives as its high magnesium content promotes muscle relaxation, helps rejuvenate the mind and calms the mind.
  4. Swimming in the sea can offer us a greater flow of breath, as it cleanses our nasal cavities and contributes to their decongestion.
  5. Offers an important shield against various diseases such as bronchitis, arthritis, asthma, psoriasis, fungal infections, etc.

For, “the cure for anything is salt water — sweat, tears, or the salt sea.” (Karen Blixen)
