Authentic Himalayan Crystal Salt
 
Let's Compare Salts...

The following information shows the huge difference in the three different types of salt:  Table, Sea, and Himalayan Crystal.

 

Modern Table Salt

Today's common salt is chemically refined. All of the natural minerals are removed because they are considered to be impurities, and the salt is reduced only to sodium and chloride. This process makes the salt unhealthy. Eating common table salt results in the formation of edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. For every .035 ounces of refined table salt that the body cannot get rid of, the body uses 23 times the amount of its own cell water to neutralize this salt.  If the sodium chloride is still too high, re-crystallization of the table salt occurs that is deposited directly in the bones and joints. This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatism such as arthritis, gout, and kidney/gall stones.  In short, it takes very little refined table salt to make our bodies weak, dehydrated, and prone to disease. 

 

 

Sea Salt

Oceans cover 70% of our earth. However, the oceans are being degraded with nuclear waste, industrial waste and farm chemical run-off. It has become common to hear news of at least one fractured oil tanker causing catastrophe each year. Recent government warnings about the increased levels of mercury in our oceans limit us to eat fish only once or twice a month. Today, sea salt does not have the same positive impact on our health, as it used to. Most sea salt undergoes a refining process, that removes a great deal of the health benefits, to get it to the packaged commodity stage.

 

Himalayan Crystal Salt

Himalayan Salt is pre-pollution and without environmental impact.

It is absolutely the most pristine, pure, totally natural, unrefined, and

cleanest salt available. It is identical in minerals to the ancient primal

ocean with all the minerals and trace elements our body needs. The

natural minerals contained in Himalayan Crystal Salt are identical to

the minerals in our bodies.

Years ago when the formation of the Himalayas began, the primal ocean evaporated with the energy of the sun as the mighty Himalayas were rising. Salt from the primal ocean was trapped and over time, with intense pressure and temperatures, the salt became crystallized. The higher the amount of pressure, the more superior the crystalline structure. The degree of compression within this mountain range was so extreme that it created perfectly structured crystal grids within the salt.

 

Today, this Crystal Salt, buried deep in the Himalayan Mountains, is mined and processed entirely by hand to bring you a salt that retains 100% of the original qualities of this ancient body of water. 

The moment it again touches water or is heated, this special salt will come alive, setting free its inherent, stored healing energy that can benefit our bodies tremendously.

 

 

The Neutralizing Effects of Himalayan Crystal Salt:

The largest and oldest salt works in Europe occupies the Royal Salt Mine of Wieliczka, Poland. Here, a hospital was carved out of the expansive salt mountain, specifically for asthmatics, and patients with lung disease and allergies. Thousands of patients have been successfully treated in this hospital with the astonishingly healing rate of over 90%.

Our houses and lives are charged with electromagnetic devices, such as TVs, stereos, computers, microwave ovens, cell phones, and the basic electric currents running through our walls. This electro-smog causes an excess of positively charged ions that disturbs the balance between the positively and negatively charged particles. Further, it creates an excess of positively charged, chemically unbound particles in the air. Only thirty seconds on a cell phone is enough to open up our blood-brain-barrier (a natural barrier that protects our brain from toxins), for eight hours.

 

Common activities like cleaning, cooking, heating, and cooling can release and spread indoor pollutants in our homes. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that the inside of our homes can be more polluted than outside.

Negative ions are found naturally in the forests and mountains, but the farther away from these natural ecosystems we are, the more negative ions we lose.

 

Modern researchers at the University of Madras studying Himalayan Crystal Salt have come up with the good news - it can help control body weight, reduce obesity, and improve skin gloss. They also point out that Himalayan Crystal Salt has a protective action in liver diseases (hepatoprotective activity), and also helps in preventive action in heart diseases and neuro-digestive diseases.

 

How to prepare a Brine Solution:

Put several Himalayan Salt crystals in a glass jar that can be opened and closed easily. Fill 3/4 of the jar with distilled or spring water.  After about 48 hours, look to see if the salt crystals have completely dissolved. If so, add a few more crystals. When the water can no longer dissolve any more salt, the salt crystals will sit at the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At this point the solution becomes saturated at 26%, which is stable and ready for consumption.

 

There should always be salt crystals in the jar - this is your visual proof that the water is totally saturated with salt.  Add water whenever the Brine solution gets low, being sure to add more salt crystals when necessary.  This Brine solution is absolutely sterile and germ-free. It can therefore be stored for years in a closed glass container without changing or decomposing.

 

For Drinking Therapy:

The first thing each morning, drink a glass of fresh water with one teaspoon of Brine solution and wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything else. The amount of water is up to you, but you only need one teaspoon of brine for your daily intake. During the day drink at least 6-8 glasses of pure water.  Do this daily to achieve ultimate results. 

 

The regularity is important. From a bio-chemical viewpoint, within minutes, the stomach and intestines are being stimulated, which in turn encourages digestion and raises metabolism.

A few of the many benefits derived from the regular ingestion of Himalayan Salt Brine are:

  • Boosts the body’s immune system

  • Re-mineralizes the body with 84 minerals and trace elements essential to health

  • Replenishes electrolytes

  • Balances the body's pH

  • Improves respiratory, circulatory, organ, connectivity tissue, and nervous system functions.

  • Assists in the cellular absorption of nutrients

  • Assists in the excretion of animal proteins

  • Helps normalize blood pressure

  • Helps dissolve and eliminate sediments which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism (i.e. arthritis; kidney and gall bladder stones)

  • Lowers cravings for addictive desires (i.e. food, cigarettes)

  • Helps correct skin diseases (i.e. psoriasis, eczema, dry skin) by cleansing the body from the inside out.

 

Ailments/Methods of Salt Brine Use:

ARTHRITIS AND GOUT:

  • Follow instructions for Drinking Therapy.

  • Make a cold Brine poultice of pure Brine solution and apply it to your infected areas. Wrap with dry cloth; wait 20 minutes.  - Or -

  • Fill a damp cloth bag with salt crystals and heat it in the oven to 90-140F. Put the heated bag directly on aching area; wrap with dry cloth;  wait 20 minutes.

 

ASTHMA/BRONCHITIS:

  • Follow instructions for Drinking Therapy.

  • Complete inhalation therapy once or twice a day with a 3% Brine solution for 10-15 minutes. (Heat 4-8 quarts of water until boiling; remove from heat.  Add one ounce of Himalayan Crystal Salt for each quart of water and let it dissolve. Cover your head with a towel, lean over the bowl and inhale the vapors, keeping your face far enough away from the hot steam so as not to burn yourself.

 

DETOX OR FLU & FEVER:

  • Prepare a 3% Brine solution - (Dissolve 2 tablespoons of Himalayan Crystal Salt in one quart of water).

  • Dip a clean cotton shirt in the solution.

  • Rinse the shirt thoroughly and put it on.

  • Wrap yourself in a dry towel and lay in bed (covered with a blanket). 

  • After about half an hour you will start sweating.  Stay in bed for 60 to 90 minutes, then take off your shirt and shower.

 

This procedure is an excellent detoxification tool and activates the metabolism.

 

RUNNY NOSE OR SINUS INFECTION:

Chronic nose congestion can lead to sinus infections and headaches. If you currently suffer from these symptoms, follow these directions:

  • Follow instructions for Drinking Therapy.

  • Flush your sinuses (using a sinus-flushing system) with a 1% solution by dissolving 2 teaspoons of Crystal Salt in 3.5 ounces of lukewarm water once or twice daily. 

 

The salt solution moisturizes the mucosa and supports its natural regeneration, making it more difficult for the bacteria and viruses to nest. This is ideal for preventing runny or congested noses as well as sinus infections.

 

GOUT:

  • Soak a pair of clean cotton socks in a 3-5% salt solution (2-4 tablespoons of Crystal Salt diluted in 1 quart of water).

  • Wring out the socks thoroughly and put them on.

  • Wrap your feet in a dry towel; leave on for about 1 hour.

 

DENTAL ISSUES:

Pure Himalayan Crystal Salt will build up a pH-neutral mouth flora and will help protect your tooth enamel.  Brush your teeth every morning with concentrated Brine. Press the Brine through your teeth with the help of your tongue. Gargle with Brine for about three minutes; then spit it out.

 

HERPES:

The herpes virus remains in our system after the initial infection. If our immune system is weakened, these viruses can multiply at an explosive rate and form these very well known blisters.

  • Follow instructions for Drinking Therapy every day.

  • Apply some pure, concentrated Brine solution (26%) directly to the infected blister every hour.

 

PSORIASIS/ECZEMA:

  • Follow instructions for Drinking Therapy every day.

  • Take a salt bath 2 times a week for 10-20 minutes. Start with a 3% Brine solution concentration (6 pounds of pure Himalayan Crystal Salt diluted in a full bath tub). Gradually increase the concentration up to 8%. The Brine bath will not only moisturize your skin but will also help to stop inflammations.

 

A highly concentrated Brine bath is straining and gets more so the hotter the water. Use a temperature that feels comfortable for you but not more than the body temperature of 98.6 F. The parts of the body that are more infected than others, like elbows and knees, can be massaged with the concentrated 26% Brine solution.
