Dilute the Mouthwash: You should be able to start using mouthwash at this point in time. However, I would suggest diluting it and using 1/2 warm water and 1/2 mouthwash. ...Read more

Does using purified sea salt water, several times a day, benefit healing wounds? This specifically concerns new piercings.

Sea water: No matter how long I have been in wound care, there always seems to be an endless stream of new products and recommendations. I think that attention to the conditions under which the piercings are done (sterility of tools, for example) requires more due diligence than dealing with problems afterwards. We use sterile Normal Saline all of the time to wash wounds so if it is sterile, i see no issue. ...Read more

What are the health benefits of red sea salt?

Red sea salt: Many alternative health practitioners believe that Celtic sea salt, Himalayan sea salt and Hawaiian sea salt all contain natural trace minerals that help balance electrolytes. Red salt from Kauai is infused with alaea, a type of Hawaiian clay. The clay tints the salt red because it contains iron oxide, which serves as an added nutrient.. Sea salt naturally contains magnesium and potassium, ...Read more

Salt is Salt: Salt is NaCl (Sodium Chloride). The other "salts" contain various amounts of other minerals like magnesium, potassium and others. This affects their taste not their function. "Processed" salt sometimes contains Iodine. Any salt is not "bad" for us. It is actually a necessary nutrient. Excessive salt can be harmful for some people. Processed or not is essentially irrelevant. ...Read more

Is there a chance if we are using a sea water or dead sea salt with some dietary supplements for immune system to cure seborrheic dermatitis?

Is there a chance if we are using a sea water or dead sea salt with some dietary supplements for immune system to cure seborrheic dermatitis?

No: Seborrheic dermatitis responds better to topical anti-fungal or anti-inflammatory agents. Dead sea salt contains certain minerals plus salt but I am not aware that it has any antifungal or antiinflammatory properties I bought some of the Dead Sea skin products while in Israel and found all of them no better than other OTC products although far more expensive. ...Read more

Why is sea salt getting so popular these days?

Marketing: Sea salt theoretically is the salt remaining from collected, filtered and dried sea water. However it would contain a lot of minerals, some objectionable. So it is probably purified salt with some additives for taste and color. The prices I have seen for this are astronomical but marketing deserves congratulations for making something so common, a pricey item. ...Read more

Is sea salt good for you?

Same as salt: Sea salt is simply mostly ordinary salt with a few additives for color and occasionally taste.The basic element is ordinary salt and that is the same as any other salt. Your body needs salt, but not an excessive amount so sea salt should be added as part of your sodium intake. ...Read more

Same effect: Salts that have minor ingredients changing the color, are still basically salt. You can substitute them one for another with the same effect. ...Read more
