The Salt Scene
You have a big day tomorrow. Maybe it is the first day of school and you want to make a great first impression. Perhaps you have a job interview, the one you have wanted for a very long time. Maybe it is a date with that special someone and you want to look your prime time best. It is the night before the “Big Day.” Face washed? Check. Teeth brushed? Check. Everything else ready? Check. Now it is off to sweet sleep. First an hour goes by. No problem. Then 2. Then 3. You have now counted so many sheep, you feel like moving to New Zealand. Insomnia. Everyone experiences it now and again.
How common is insomnia?
According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine: How common is insomnia among adults? Here are the numbers:
- 30 to 35% have brief symptoms of insomnia.
- 15 to 20% have a short-term insomnia disorder, which lasts less than three months.
- 10% have a chronic insomnia disorder, which occurs at least three times per week for at least three months.
Insomnia is not only inconvenient, it can be rather problematic. Chronic insomnia impacts health in a negative way including increasing your risk of depression and high blood pressure. It also can lower your quality of life.
Common symptoms of insomnia include:
- Inability to focus or concentrate
- Poor memory
- Mood disturbance
- Daytime sleepiness
- Low motivation or energy
- Increased errors or accidents
Now the good news.
There are many natural substances that can assist with alleviating the symptoms of insomnia but the only way to address the issue is to get to the root cause. There are several but perhaps the most common is Mineral and Trace Mineral Deficiency. Particularly here in Florida, given the high heat and humidity, we lose quite a bit of both. Even with a 100% perfect diet, assuming anyone eats that way, it is very difficult to get the levels of Minerals and Trace Minerals the body needs. Unfortunately, the soil has become depleted of both.
You can take Minerals and Trace Minerals via supplementation but the former is usually large tablets and the latter is liquid that tastes like bitter metal. As unappealing as both sound, there is a much better alternative. One of the most effective ways to elevate these levels via salt therapy and the Salt Scene. The inhalation of Himalayan salt and the high rate of absorption make this not only the most useful way, but the most enjoyable.
Your “treatment” consists of this – relax. Yes, that is it! You simply relax in an extremely peaceful room, knowing that the therapy is taking care of your body’s needs.
Unlike sometimes confusing details such as types of minerals (carbonate form, lactate form, asportate. Which is best?) and dosages, the specifics are already taken care of for you by the expert staff. When Mineral and Trace Mineral levels reach their optimal levels from, Salt Scene Treatments, in natural medicine, the energy from the head area is “pulled down” to the middle portion of the body, thus allowing a person a peaceful night’s sleep. That “monkey mind” incessant dialogue quiets and one drifts away. Struggling with insomnia? Take a few treatments, break the insomnia cycle and wake up to a beautiful new morning.
