For example, ancient Egyptians kept believing in the healing powers of long soaks in seawater.

Sea; Life Origin

In fact, this relieving feeling, has a deeper meaning. Scientifically, plant life first started in the deepest part of the sea. Since Planet Earth was first created, the only source of nourishment existed in the sea, because the sea itself, was covering all the planet. Moreover, in a recent scientific research, it was proven that seawater can restore balance to an organism. “The living organism is a sea aquarium in which a few billion cells are bathing,” said Quinton, a French physiologist.
