Salt of Life
Crystal salt from the Himalayas, rich in minerals and trace elements, is the highest quality form of natural salt. It is very important for humans. It is a natural product of high bio-energetic quality without additives.
The ratio between stone and crystal salt is 100:1, and so mining it is more expensive than other salt extraction processes. If it were mined with explosives, the crystal salt would lose its biophysical quality (subtle vibration). It must therefore be harvested by hand. The highest quality crystal salt is very scarce.
We bring you top quality crystal salt from the Himalayas with a very high bio-energetic quality, carefully harvested by hand to preserve the life force contained within. Jeveda, our brand, will be well known in the healing circles.
History of Salt - White Gold
We are rediscovering a lot of knowledge about the effects of natural crystal salt. The salt that we know as cooking, table or common salt no longer matches the original meaning of the word "salt", for it consists only of sodium chloride (NaCl). That is not the salt found in nature. It fortunately still exists in its primordial form. This salt, in its natural, synergistic combination of many of the basic substances known as natural elements is very different from pure sodium chloride, which lacks these crucial life-supporting nutrients.
Scientists recognize that natural crystal salt consists not only of the sodium chloride (NaCl) but also of other elements - those thought to be the same elements of which the planet Earth was composed, and from which original life and our bodies developed.
Our body fluids, which make up 70% of our weight, contain the same salts and almost the same ratio of components as sea water. Our blood is basically nothing more than modified sea water with all its trace elements. Each of these elements has a specific electromagnetic field with a specific frequency. The interaction of these naturally present trace elements in salt is very important for our body, as witnessed in the expression "salt of life".
The highest grade of natural salt is crystal salt. The minerals and trace elements contained in crystal salt are present in colloidal form (i.e. they are so small that they can be absorbed by the cell through the cellular membrane). This means that such necessary elements as potassium, calcium and magnesium as well as trace minerals are readily absorbed by the body.
The story of who stole "white gold", or crystal salt, is not a mystery. First, crystal salt began to be refined by man, reducing it to sodium chloride. This was not to purify it but rather to extract all the naturally present elements in the primordial salt. To do this, a costly chemical process requiring over 2,000 chemicals is used. What is extracted are substances like germanium, gold, and magnesium, just to name a few. These elements are sold separately at great profit. 93% to 95% of the refined salt goes to industry, where pure sodium chloride is required for chemical processes. The rest of the production, approximately 5 to 7%, goes to the food processing industry. Our cooking salt is practically all iodized even though is has been scientifically proven many times that the side effects of this forced iodization are detrimental. In recent years, the diseases caused by artificial iodization have increased by leaps and bounds. Other chemical substances such as aluminium are added to our table salt to make it pour easily.
In our daily food the average consumer ingests between 12 to 20 grams (0.35 - 0.42 ounces) of refined salt. Healthy kidneys can process only 5 to 7 grams (0.18 - 0.25 oz) per day. The rest remains in the body. The body needs twenty-three fold volume of water to bind and isolate salt. For that, the body will resort to using cellular water which it extracts from its cells if there is not enough water in the blood and lymph. With its vital cell water drained, the cells wither and die. Continuous loss of cellular water brings on dehydration and we slowly dry out. This is a chronic problem for people today.
When the body can no longer spare cellular water to maintain its 23:1 ratio of water to sodium chloride, the latter reacts with amino acids and results in the formation of kidney stones and crystal deposits in the bones and joints.
Through the isolation and binding of sodium chloride with water the body produces watery tissue, a tissue without any function and an ideal culture medium for deposits and bacteria. As long as sodium chloride is consumed it is difficult to get rid of excess weight and resultant watery tissue. Sodium chloride overload starts in childhood. Ironically, at the same time we suffer from a deficit of salt - the real salt which builds the electrolytic management in the body and produces the electricity that is so important for the nervous system.
In contrast to refined cooking salt, sea salt contains the naturally present trace elements. Unfortunately, with recent extensive water pollution, sea salt can be loaded with harmful substances, especially heavy metals, which generate negative bio-physical frequencies.
Natural salt, or pure crystal salt, is the best alternative to cooking or sea salt. In earlier times, it was known as "king's salt". It is a natural salt that gave rise to such expressions as "the salt of life" or "white gold"'. Natural salt matured over millions of years under high pressure, and it was not exposed to contamination. In crystal salt, energy was built up over time to form a very specific crystalline structure. All minerals contained in it are colloidal. Looking at this bio-chemically, we can see that we benefit from those minerals; bio-physically, we also profit from the energy and frequency of the crystal salt.
When crystal salt is put in water, it will dissolve until the solution becomes saturated at 26%. This is called brine. During the saturation process, energy is released. This is the same hydration energy that was absorbed into the salt when it dried out of a sea millions of years ago.
It is almost impossible for our bodies to absorb too much crystal salt since this natural process is self-regulating. Natural crystal salt always has a balancing effect so that high blood pressure does not result. On the contrary, through the balancing effect high blood pressure is reduced and low blood pressure is raised.
Crystal Salt Brine
Fill a glass (not plastic or metal), preferably one that can be closed and opened easily such as a small mason jar, with crystal salt rocks and cover the rocks with pure spring water or filtered tap water, preferably treated with Precious Prills or other energy chargers. As the salt dissolves, the water structures itself accordingly and will self-regulate to stop dissolving once the 26% saturation point has been reached. This concentration stays stable over time. Now you can use the brine. As the salt dissolves, you just add more salt rocks and top up with water.
Note: All following applications are established empirically. Before you begin with therapeutic applications, please consult your physician or health practitioner.
Brine Drinking Cure
1. The easiest way to dissolve old sodium chloride poisons built up as crystalline deposits in your system is to take a brine drinking cure. In the morning, on an empty stomach, put a teaspoon of brine solution in a glass of pure water. Wait 10 minutes before eating or drinking.
2. We recommend the use of brine for teeth brushing. It balances the pH in your mouth and works against gum bleeding, periodontal diseases, canker sores and bad breath. If used consequently, your teeth will become whiter again and tartar will dissolve. Using brine as a mouth wash has proved to be effective, as has gently brushing the tongue with the salt solution.
A brine bath is recommended for skin diseases, rheumatism and joint diseases, after operations, for gynaecological diseases and for children with a tendency to recurring infections, to strengthen the immune system and to detoxify the body.
To get the full benefits of a therapeutic natural salt bath, the right salt concentration is mandatory. The salt concentration has to be at least the same as the one of our body fluids (approximately 1%) to activate the osmotic exchange ratio. Since a full tub normally takes from 100 to 120 liters (27 - 32 gallons) of water at least 1.2 kg. (2.6 pounds) of natural salt is required. To avoid using body energy to balance the temperature, the water should be 37° Celsius (97° Fahrenheit). The bath should last 20 to 30 minutes. During this time, the body reaches the same salt concentration inside and outside as the one that can be compared to the pre-natal state.
From the brine bath the minerals penetrate the skin in form of ions. The stimulation will cause natural cell growth in the living cell layers. Bio-energetic weak points will be balanced and the body's own energy flow will be activated.
The natural regulating mechanism of the body, homeostasis, is initiated. The detoxifying effect of a brine bath can be compared to a 3-day fast. Since salt is also a disinfectant, several people can use the same water. Observations have shown that the applications of the therapeutic natural salt bath cure have the best effect at the changes of the moon (at full moon: optimal assimilation; at new moon: optimal detoxification.
Brine Steam Inhalation
Used as an aid with chronic and specific illnesses of the upper and lower respiratory tracts (asthma, bronchitis, acute as well as chronic sinuses and ear infections). Put a little salt (approximately 10% by volume) directly in hot water and inhale the vapors for 10 to 15 minutes, keeping your head and the bowl covered. The respiratory tract needs about 30 minutes after inhalation to bind the deposits and poisons by producing mucus and secretions, which will usually cause a light cough. This application can be done daily depending on the individual's state of health.
Crystal lamps are becoming very popular. The surface of the crystal salt lamp draws humidity as it warms up, building up an ionic field. Undesirable positive ions are bound with the negative ions generated by the crystal salt lamp. This way the electric charge of the air in the room is neutralized. This produces a comfortable and beneficial atmosphere.
Crystal salt lamps, with their pleasant colors, also have a therapeutic and healing effect. For instance, in tests with hyper active children, or with sleeping and concentration problems, it was established that these symptoms diminished within a week of starting the use of the lamp.
In the USA, 28 hospitals utilized crystal salt lamps in cancer therapies as a natural radiation because the positive changes were proven.
Quality is a Question of Honor
It is necessary to understand that the bio-energetic quality of natural crystal salt is primarily dependent upon the technical production process. Crystal salt needs to be processed by hand, step by step. Himalayan crystal salt fulfills this requirement perfectly.
