According to Barbara Hendel in her book "Water & Salt: The Essence of Life," the effects of a Himalayan salt detox body wrap is similar to a three-day juice fast. The Himalayan salt detox body wrap is an extensive exfoliation, a wrap and absorption of natural minerals the body needs. The friction of the exfoliation helps sedate the central nervous system, allowing the body to relax and take in all the nutrients during the 20–30 minute wrap. Reabsorption occurs during the wrap, which furthers the detoxification process.
