“The sea cures all ailments of man.” – Plato
From ancient civilizations to today, salt and the sea has been associated with health and therapy, 'Thalassotherapy.'
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was the first one to detail the benefits of using sea water to cure various ailments. He encouraged his fellow healers to immerse patients with aching muscles and arthritis in sea water. The ancient Greeks continued this thinking by soaking in sea water hot tubs and heated seaweed bath's, they drank and inhaled sea water for health and used sea water pools for hydrotherapy and elimination of toxins from the body.
In 2010 Caim & Able Founder, Michelle Matthewman discovered the genuine, rapid truly remarkable benefits of simply bathing in Magnesium salt.
