Contact with the sea is rest, sunbathing, but also a healing walk
The healing power of the sea was first noticed by the ancient Greeks in the 4th century BC. The most famous Greek physician, Hippocrates, is the founder of Greek medicine. Hippocrates discovered the healing properties of sea water by studying the effect of water on the healing of body wounds. Hippocrates observed the beneficial effect of sea water on the damaged hands of fishermen. He realized that seawater reduces the risk of infection and regenerates cells. Hippocrates was the first to use the word “thalassotherapy” (from the Greek words thalassa-water and therapia-healing) to describe the healing effects of seawater. Greeks and Romans built sea baths on the shores of the Mediterranean and Atlantic. The Greek dramatist Euripides wrote in the 5th century BC: the sea cures all human diseases.
French scientist Rene Quinton devoted his life to studying seawater. 1897 Quinton concludes that the human body is analogous to sea water because it has the same mineral composition. 1906 Quinton publishes the book “Seawater-Organic Medium” in which he talks about the chemical similarity of blood plasma and seawater.
Seawater has the same pH value as healthy human blood
It contains vitamins and minerals in the exact proportions that the human body needs. Every person must first understand the composition of sea water to understand the therapeutic value of sea water. Sea water contains 84 important elements that the human body also has. These are minerals, vitamins, trace elements and amino acids. It is full of microorganisms that have antibiotic, antimicrobial and antibacterial effects.
As much as 99% of salt is made up of 5 basic elements: chlorine 55%, sodium 30.6%, magnesium 3.7%, calcium 1.1%, potassium 1.1% and other 0.8%. The human body has the ability to absorb these elements. Research shows that human plasma contains the same concentration of the same elements.
The exceptional composition of sea salt contributes to the reduction of inflammatory conditions and pain
Swimming in the sea is good for people with arthritis, rheumatism, back and muscle pain. Salt binds to water through the process of osmosis, so sea salt encourages the release of excess fluid from the body. Salt from the sea binds water from the body and thus releases excess water from the body.
Sea salt is an anti-cellulite remedy in combination with waves that have a massage effect. Therefore, sea salt is also an elixir for healthy and beautiful skin. It has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. Sea water cleans the body because bathing stimulates the work of the kidneys, liver and skin, which filter and excrete harmful substances from the body.
Research shows that sea salt relieves the symptoms of rosacea, psoriasis and eczema. It has a powerful antiseptic effect and accelerates the healing of wounds and scratches. Increases skin elasticity. It reduces the risk of premature appearance of the first signs of skin aging. It increases the flow of oxygen in the blood. It destroys parasites, fungi and bacteria due to its antiseptic effect.
Sea water and being by the sea relieves stress and relaxes the body. Magnesium is contained in a high percentage in sea water. Magnesium has been proven to have a positive effect against stress. The sound of waves and negative ions present in the air near the sea also help. Negative ions strengthen the body, strengthen concentration, reduce depression and insomnia, headache and fatigue. They have a beneficial effect on people with allergies and asthma. Air saturated with negative ions is in forests and mountains, near waterfalls, rivers, seas and oceans. Processed and cleaned sea water is used in numerous preparations for skin and hair care.
