Recreational Drug: Bath Salts With Novelty Drugs
Bath salts, also called Hawaiian bath salts, have been used for centuries as both a personal treatment item and a well-known business product. For years, they have been the favored alternative of professional bath and body salons. While their popularity has waned in recent years, there has been an explosion in their availability and price. You can now find them in department stores, health food stores, gift shops, online retailers, health food boutiques, bath stores, specialty shops and even gas stations. There is a large variety of Dead Sea salts on the market, so it is easy to find one that suits your needs.
The primary purpose of using Dead Sea salt was to treat water from lakes and seas for consumption and healing in the early days of the civilizations when water transportation was not common. As the world’s trade and infrastructure grew and became more developed, however, the need for this salt became important. With the development of medical care and treatments, particularly in the United States, bath salts slowly lost favor as a treatment for any number of ailments. However, they still remain in use in some clinics and spas, largely as a back-up plan in case a doctor prescribes a strong medicine or an overdose is needed.
There is no evidence that any of these conditions has ever been caused by taking Dead Sea salts. Rather, the increased popularity is likely the result of a rise in cases of high blood pressure, which in turn can be caused by a decline in the heart rate of an individual. Because of the chemical properties of the Dead Sea salt, there are believed to be certain properties that increase the heart rate. As the heart rate goes up, the individual typically experiences increased feelings of euphoria, which leads them to take larger amounts of the bath salt. In more severe cases, dangerous side effects such as hallucinations and convulsions may occur.
Not all the salts have been found to have this side effect. The most common bath salts are produced with tryptamines and phenethylamine, which cause confusion and even experience a tunnel vision type effect. Although there have been no definitive studies linking tryptamines and phenethylamine with any type of health risk, tryptamines and phenethylamine have been found to be present in clinical laboratories from time to time. It is possible that an accidental ingestion of a bath salt with tryptamines could lead to a trip to a clinical laboratories.
The other group of drugs found in bath salts are dopamine and serotonergic drugs. These two groups of drugs affect the brain’s neurotransmitters in different ways. For example, dopamine affects the synapses by increasing the release of neurochemicals, mainly dopamine. Serotonergic drugs affect the nerve cells by binding to them and then attaching them to receptors so they can send signals to different parts of the brain. When this happens, the messages sent by the cells cross reference themselves and cause hallucinations, anxiety, fear, or other types of mental disturbances.
These types of drugs are usually used by patients with diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. However, the recreational user of bath salts does not necessarily have a disease like these people. Instead, these drugs are often used because of the mood enhancing effect they have. It has been found that repeated use of synthetic cathinones produces an altered state of the human brain over a period of time. This alters the function of the brain so that it does not function properly anymore and creates feelings of anxiety and other disorders.
