Health benefits of the sea

The sea has captured human interest since the beginning of time. With its mysterious waters and sheer enormity, it has been the source of inspiration for writers and painters to name but few. It also has numerous benefits on our health as humans. The sea is more than just fun, it can also help us feel better and more relaxed.

Apart from being highly refreshing, a quick dip in the sea or a walk along the promenade and breathing the sea air will invigorate the body and mind. A place like Puerto Peñasco which in English we can call Rocky Point, is one that boasts some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. The salt water contains medicinal properties which are ideal for physical and emotional health. People who live near the sea know all too well that the coast and the water help us achieve a state of peace and wellbeing.

One of the key benefits of salt water can be seen on our skin. The mineral salts in sea water get to work at regenerating our skin, especially good for sufferers of psoriasis or acne or other mild complaints where once in regular contact with the sea you can see a remarkable difference. People who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis can see a tremendous improvement if they combine sea water with exercise. Post-operative patients can also accelerate the scarring process by being in contact with sea water.

Often, daily routine and everyday stresses can become our worst enemy. Perhaps a visit to Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point in English) is the key to be able to really disconnect. Marine water contains magnesium, an element that produces a sense of relaxation on the body and helps you to free yourself of tension. In fact, in Ancient Greece baths were so popular due to their healing properties. The Greeks knew that the sea is the perfect muscle relaxant.

People who suffer from asthma or other repsiratory problems know that they too can benefit from a swim in the sea. Breathing the sea air or submerging ourselves in the salty water on one of Rocky Point’s beaches – also known as Puerto Peñasco – will help your body rid itself of toxins that can cause problems in the lungs. Any cut you may have will receive a natural medicine to help it to heal much more quickly. Nowadays, many people who suffer from insomnia or other sleeping difficulties are unaware that being in contact with the sea actually helps to normalise blood pressure.

In summary, a few days relaxing by the sea can be much more beneficial for our bodies than we might have originally thought.
