Himalayan Salt Technical Details16.10.2008
by Life Enthusiast Staff
Himalayan Crystal Salt is the most beneficial, cleanest salt available on this planet. It was formed about 250 million years ago where the energy of the sun has dried up the original, primal sea. This crystal salt is absolutely pristine and natural, identical in composition to the ancient primal ocean. It contains all the elements found in our bodies. This special salt is only waiting for the moment to have its inherent stored energy and its bio-photon content set free, by adding water to it. Such crystalline brine is a pure ocean of energy.
Today, Alternative Health Therapists and European Doctors are successfully applying the ancient knowledge of "Sole" or Brine water, derived from combining Himalayan Crystal Salt with good quality distilled or spring water. Access the hidden power of these awesome Natural Salt Crystals. This Natural Crystal Salt has been exposed to enormous pressure for millions of years. This pressure was the cause of the formation of this crystal salt. The higher the compression, the more perfect its crystalline structure, and its inherent information/energy, giving these rock crystals the most perfect geometric structure found.
Crystal salt floats in transparent, whitish, pinkish or reddish shiny veins in the salt mountain and crystallizes in areas where sufficient pressure was available to form this perfect crystalline structure. The more transparent and colorless the crystals are, the higher their purity. The more geometrically perfect the cube shaped crystal is, the higher is the information and energetic content. Compare its structure to a diamond.
In this crystal salt, the elements are available in such tiny particles (colloidal size) that they can be easily absorbed by the human cells and metabolized. Crystal Salt was once called "King Salt" because it was reserved for Royalty. Common Citizens only got Rock Salt.

Mining Crystal Salt
Crystal salt in its most perfect form is geologically referred to as halite. In olden days it was called "kings' salt" because its use was a privilege reserved for nobility. The populous received mere rock salt. Crystal salt mining was abandoned a long time ago, when it ceased being profitable. Because pure crystal salt only occurs sporadically and in veins, it cannot be mined and processed mechanically. It is oftentimes necessary to mine one hundred times the amount of rock salt in order to secure the precious crystal salt. Biophysically, crystal salt must be mined manually in order to retain the natural qualities of its frequency spectrum. However, the manual mining of salt is economically unrealistic. In order for people to experience the potential and the regenerating effects we have discovered in Himalayan crystal salt, it is necessary to make it available. Holistic theories are significant only when they can be put into practice and proven. So when we talk about all the natural elements being present in Himalayan crystal salt and have comprehended how essential this substance is for our body, the next step is to make it available for proving. Not all salts found in crystal form have similar qualities. Just because rock salt assumes a crystalline form doesn't mean that it is of the superior quality that we have been talking about here.
To date, scientific interest in the biophysical qualities of salt has been slight. This is the reason for so little research having been done so far in respect to the qualities of the salt. Scientific probing and analyzing of crystal salt, in the forbidding depths of the salt mine, is both extensive and extravagant. Up to now it was neither of any interest to the salt miners nor to the general public. Only after the publishing of research data, gathered from the analytical study of crystal salt that was mined in Berchtesgaden, Germany and in the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan, did public and scientific interest soar.
Naturally, in order to preserve the inherent vibration pattern in the Himalayan crystal salt, it must be hand mined. This increases not only its value, but also consequently, its price. Expect to pay more for this salt than for other table salts, sea salts or rock salt. Therefore, be mindful of the quality of the product you intend to buy. The crystal salt from the Himalayan Mountains that was used for conducting the medical research revealed in the book, Water and Salt by Peter Ferreira, continues to be utilized by the medical profession and fulfills all named essentials. Today there are several hundred doctors and therapists utilizing this ancient holistic knowledge. For thousands of years, doctors have successfully treated their patients with nothing more then water and salt!
Surely there are other deposits of crystal salt in the world and our planet has an abundance of it. Industrialization may have supplanted this ancient knowledge, but it's time to revive this know-how and rediscover crystal salt as a vital food source. You will be surprised how quickly you can regain your body's natural energy balance. There are many health conscious individuals who shop at health and natural food stores. However, many are simply nonchalant in regards to the most important foods, water and salt. One study showed that those subjects that were less health food conscious, but were drinking the highest quality water and consuming the highest quality salt, for the most part had healthier organs than the health conscious people who paid no attention to the quality of water and salt they were consuming. Understand that you can become physically and mentally independent when you choose to drink natural, artesian, living spring water and you choose to eat pure crystal salt, instead of table salt. However, this is not about just regaining your total health. What we're also discussing here is about balancing and managing your energy, which can be maintained by the information bound in the water and the salt. These two elements hold everything to satisfy your body and your mind.
The Healing Effects of Salt
For thousands of years salt has been known as a panacea. Alchemists called it "the fifth element" -besides water, earth, air and fire- because its qualities were comparable only to ether, the actual fifth element. Why are we so drawn to the ocean? Because our subconscious mind instinctively wants to return to the specific vibrational state of the ocean from which we once emerged. This is where we can return to recharge our batteries and regenerate. It was only one hundred years ago with the advent of industrialization, that we initiated our disconnection from nature and her ways. Fortunately, we are witnessing a trend to return back to natural, holistic methods for living and caring for our body, including a shift back to utilizing natural salts in this process. People everywhere are reconsidering the healing effects of natural crystal salt. We can find it in skin care lotions, for use as bath salts and is even used in inhalation or cleansing treatments for illnesses of the respiratory system and for a variety of other indications.
When you decide to apply some of the sole remedies at home, we ask that you not simply follow the procedures, but also to become consciously aware of the magnificent reformation that you are initiating in your life with help of the primal elements, water and salt. Even though you will primarily experience the effects on a physical level, they will also have implications on an energetic, subtle level for both your mind and spirit as well. Have patience. Give yourself the time and tranquility for attaining and remaining healthy from within. Be aware of the possibility of an initial aggravation of your condition and let your family and friends know what you are doing, so they can support you.
The Difference Between Rock Salt and a Crystal Salt
The elements in rock salt are not integrated into the salt's crystal grid, but cling to the outside surface and crevices of the crystalline structure. This is the fundamental difference between rock salt and crystal salt. A salt crystal manifests a superior structure. Due to this sublime form, the elements are biochemically available for our cells as are the individual frequencies or vibration patterns. Rock salt is a cheap alternative to table salt, and is at least a natural and wholesome product. Biochemically and biophysically however, it is of little importance to our organism. We can only receive the resonant effects of the geometrical structure through the superior order or structure of a crystal and our cells can only absorb those elements that occur in an ionic-colloidal form. Only under considerable pressure can the elements be transformed into a specific size, making them ionic-colloidal, which enables them to pass through our cell wall. This is important because our cells can only absorb what is available organically or ionic-colloidal. Therefore, we cannot absorb minerals from mineral water because they're not refined enough to penetrate our cell walls. And what doesn't get into our cells cannot be metabolized. Therefore, the best calcium is useless if it cannot be available to the body's cells. What we need is the organic, or ionic-colloidal state of an element, in perfect natural symbiosis with all its associated elements, in order for our organism to make any use of it.
From White Gold To White Poison
As common as saltshakers are to our kitchens, so are the numbers of diseases associated with salt's daily use. Life is not possible without salt. But our consumption of salt is killing us. Why is that? Because our regular table salt no longer has anything in common with the original crystal salt of which we're talking about here. Salt now a day is mainly sodium chloride and not salt. Natural crystal salt consists not only of two, but also of all natural elements. These are exactly identical to the elements of which our bodies have been built and originally found existing in the "primal ocean" from where all life originated.
Interesting enough, our blood is a sole, containing the same salty solution or brine as that of the primal sea; that is, a fluid consisting of water and salt. It also has the same ratio of concentration as existed in the days when life left the primal sea. This sole flows through more than 56,000 miles of waterways and blood vessels throughout our organism with the forces of gravity and levity and regulates and balances the functions of our body.
How Salt Became Sodium Chloride
With the advent of industrial development, natural salt was "chemically cleaned" and reduced to the combination of sodium and chloride. Essential minerals and trace elements were removed as impurities. However, sodium chloride is an unnatural, isolated, unwholesome substance having nothing in common with salt. Similar to white, refined sugar, salt, once regarded as white gold, was converted into white poison. However, there is a higher reason for salt having been endowed with all the natural elements found in our bodies. Sodium chloride is an aggressive substance, which biochemically, is perpetually seeking an equalizing counterpart so that the body's pH can always remain neutral. Sodium chloride needs its natural counterpart in order for it to produce its effect. The natural counterparts, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals and trace elements, demonstrate, from a biophysical standpoint, specific frequency patterns. These patterns ensure the geometric structures in our body. When these structures are missing, we are without energy and are lifeless. Salt should not be used just to add flavor to our food, but for its vibration pattern, which is similar to our body!
How Table Salt Burdens the Body
While our body only requires the minute amount of 0.007 oz. of salt per day, most of us suffer from a lack of salt, even though we're over saturated with sodium chloride. When our consumption of salt is less than 0.007 oz. per day, salt craving kicks in. The average, per capita, daily consumption of table salt in the U.S. is between 0.4 oz. and 0.7 oz. However, our body is only able to excrete 0.17 oz. - 0.25 oz. a day through our kidneys, depending on our age, constitution and sex. The body recognizes table salt as an aggressive cellular poison, an unnatural substance, and wants to eliminate it as quickly as possible in order to protect itself. This causes constant overburden on our excretive organs. In almost every preserved product, salt is used as part of the preservation process. Therefore, by adding salt to the already salted food, the body receives more salt than it can get rid of.
The body now tries to isolate the over dose of salt. In this process, water molecules surround the sodium chloride in order to ionize it into sodium and chloride to neutralize it. For this process, the water is taken from our cells and the body has to sacrifice its most perfectly structured cell water in order to neutralize sodium chloride. In doing so, the dehydrated body cells die.
The Consequences of Consuming Table Salt
The result of consuming common table salt is the formation of overly acidic edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. That's why doctors tell us to avoid salt. For every milligram of sodium chloride that cannot be eliminated, the body uses 23 ml, or 23 times the amount of its own cell water to neutralize the salt. If the sodium chloride is still too high, the body re-crystalizes the table salt by using available non-degradable animal proteins, (as those found in milk), which also have no value and cannot be broken down and eliminated. The body uses these proteins to produce uric acid in order to get rid of the excess salt. As the body cannot dispose of uric acid, it binds itself with the sodium chloride to form new crystals that are deposited directly in the bones and joints. This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatisms such as arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones. The re-crystalizing is the body's band-aid solution for the cells and organs in order to protect the body from irreparable damage of irresponsible food intake. But in the long run, it poisons the system because those substances cannot be disposed of.
The Salt in our Kitchen
Only an insignificantly small amount of the worldwide salt production ends up in our kitchens as "salt", here commonly referred to as table salt. Through intensive advertisement campaigns, the salt industry tries to convince the general public of the health advantage of halogens, such as the highly toxic iodine, (in form of iodide compound) in salt. Also, fluoride is another popular additive to table salt, an extremely reactive, greenish-yellowish, piercingly sharp gas with stinging odor that also belongs to the group of halogens. Iodide is artificially added, claiming to be of benefit to the thyroid, and fluoride, supposedly to strengthen our teeth. However, both components only add to the perils of sodium chloride.
The questionable and refutable hypothesis that Germany is a country which lacks iodine, has caused not only the entire country of Germany, but also Switzerland and Austria to be indirectly, forcefully medicated with iodine. This commercial campaign started in Germany in 1995 and has been one of the most successful propaganda campaigns of the last twenty years. Therefore, it is no surprise that the majority of the German general public believes that the artificially, iodine "enriched" table salt is actually healthy for them and therefore willing to consume it. The scientific insights however, on adding iodine and fluoride to sodium chloride, must be critically examined. Meanwhile, more people are suffering from the consequences of these substances than are claimed to be helped by them. The body is simply not in any position to metabolize artificially provided iodine and fluoride compounds. Amongst scientists, it is already known that nitrates belong to the most aggressive carcinogenic substances, and breed selective cancer in numerous organs. Food additives such as iodide, fluoride, polyphenols and metal salts have an accelerating effect on the production of nitrates in the stomach. Iodide is first on the list of substances that catalyze and accelerate the production of nitrates, by literally six fold. One important consideration for cancer prevention is to completely avoid iodide. Japan, one of the countries with the highest iodine deposits in the world, also has a 25 percent rate of thyroid cancer. In other countries the thyroid cancer rates decrease to the extent of the decrease in iodide consumption. Less iodide means less cancer. Even the renowned German magazine "Oeko-test" (Eco-test), depicted halogen compounds from such halogens as iodine, fluoride, bromine and chloride as inappropriate for consumption, because most of these compounds cause allergies and are carcinogenic. A US study found that adding iodide to salt could be the cause of a decrease in male sperm cells.
Added to this, table salt most often contains preservatives, added but not mandatory to be labeled, such as calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, as well as aluminium hydroxide, to prevent the grains of salt from clumping together. Aluminium is a light metal that is known to accumulate in the brain. It is assumed that the high rate of Alzheimer's disease in the US is linked to a high consumption of pre-processed foods, packed in aluminium, as well as to a high consumption of soft drinks from aluminium cans. The distress caused by aluminium, undermines the bridging of nervous pathways, which blocks our thought process. After all, it is the natural salt, containing all natural elements of the Earth, removed as impurities by biochemists, that enables our brain processes to even function. Salt consisting of all the natural elements, is considered, in error, by the biochemical industry to be contaminated. In reality, only the naturally occurring calcium, potassium and magnesium found in salt can be absorbed and used by the body. We need salt in its holistic form, with all the natural elements, in order for our bodies to function perfectly. We need calcium, potassium and magnesium in the exact proportion and order as they appear in natural salt in order for our body to absorb and optimally utilize these minerals and trace elements. We need salt in its holistic state, with all its inherent natural elements, so that our body can function the way it is designed to.
Natural Salt Deposits
Salt is plentiful on Earth, especially in the oceans, which cover approximately 70 percent of the surface. However, the oceans are being degraded to waste disposal-dumping facilities and are being polluted with heavy metals like, lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury and more. Not a single year passes without major news of at least one fractured oil tanker causing a catastrophe. Of course, the poison elements also have their own vibration patterns which are dissonant and therefore, harmful to our bodies. So, today, sea salt doesn't have the same positive impact on our health as it used to. In addition, 80 percent of all the sea salt producers are refining their salt. But there is still sufficient pure, holistic salt available on Earth, left when millions of years ago the sun evaporated the primal oceans. This crystal salt that exists within the Himalayan Mountains is still as pure as the ancient primal oceans and contains all the elements as found in our body. Such a crystalline sole is a vast source of energy.
The Brine Bath
In contrast to a normal bath in which moisture is extracted from the skin, a sole bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin and the skin does not dry out. This is the reason why sole baths are good for dry skin as well.
The cleansing effects of a 30-minute sole bath equal that of a three-day fast. The toxins are released into the bathwater through osmosis while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and balances the pH factor of our skin. Studies have shown that you can achieve the best results taking a sole bath during the change of the moon cycle. The minerals and energies stored in the sole can optimally be absorbed during a full moon. The body's healing potential is at its peak and bioenergetic weak points are harmonized and the body's own energy flow activated. During a new moon the cleansing effects are optimized because the body's capacity for detoxing is at its peak. The bath will have a detoxifying effect similar to a three-day fast.
Activate Your Healing Powers
This sole bath is a sheer ocean of energy for us. Bioenergetic deficits are rebalanced and weak links become strengthened, reactivating our body's electric current. The organs' functions start to resonate with the natural frequency patterns of the sole. This activates the natural regulatory mechanism of the body and its self-healing powers.
The concentration of the sole bath can slowly be increased from 1 percent to 8 percent. The higher the concentration the stronger the cleansing effect and the more severe will be the body's reaction as well.
How to Prepare a Sole Bath
You can find numerous bath salts on the shelves of many stores. Most of these have been chemically treated and have therefore, lost their natural qualities. For a salt bath treatment you would be best in obtaining natural, untreated crystal salt. This salt can be found in natural, cotton bags and contain 1 kilo or just over 2 pounds of crystal salt. Pour the entire contents of the bag into your bathtub and add enough water to just cover it. After about half an hour the salt will have dissolved. Now you can fill your bathtub. Do not add any other bath products to a sole bath.
The bath water should have a temperature of approximately 98.6°F our normal body temperature. Check the temperature with a thermometer. This is important, as the body must not additionally sacrifice its own energy to balance out the temperature. The bath water will remain at 98.6°F almost continuously. This is because the biophysical structure of the sole solution is so strong; it causes the molecules to move in a constant rhythm. The temperature and makeup of this sole bath is comparable to the amniotic fluid in which the embryo floats in the prenatal state. The boundaries separating your body from the sole solution in which you are floating, interfuse.
Sole baths have a positive effect on numerous ailments. They are however, demanding on the circulatory system. Be aware of this if you suffer from weak or poor heart circulation and consult your doctor beforehand. If a full bath would be too strenuous for you, you can also take a footbath.
Crystal Salt Lamps
The crystal salt lamps produce effects similar to those of the sole ionizer, although on a smaller scale. However, these lamps have big advantages, in many aspects, and not only for cleaning the environment of a room. Sitting in front of televisions or computer monitors, we are bombarded with an electro-magnetic frequency of around 100 to 160 Hz. (Hertz). Our brainwaves however, vibrate at around 8 Hz., a rate that equals the Schuhmann-Resonance-Frequency. This means that while watching TV or working at the computer, our body is exposed to frequencies that vibrate 20 times faster than our brainwaves. The result is a lack of concentration, nervousness and insomnia. Furthermore, the body produces additional free radicals that, amongst other things, can cause cancer.
Harmonizing Ionizing Effect
Crystal salt lamps bind the excessive positive ions with their negative ions. When they warm up, they attract humidity and the surface of the salt crystal becomes moist. This causes a field of ions to build up. Crystal salt lamps can also neutralize the electro-smog in a room. Additionally, the various colors of the lamp have positive effects. The therapeutic wavelengths of the colors of these crystals fall within the upper nanometer zone (600 to 700 nanometers), which are visible to our eyes and effect a reorganization of the epidermal layer of the skin. The frequencies at this upper nanometer zone are also used in allopathic medicine for treating skin cancer. Furthermore, tests on hyperactive children with concentration and sleeping disorders (ADHD symptoms) have shown that using crystal salt lamps drastically reduces their symptoms after only one week. When the lamps were removed, their symptoms returned.
Several scientific studies show that salt crystal lamps can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%. In nature Negative Ions are created by means of wind, sunlight, surf, waterfalls and rainstorms. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen. A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost its electrons through process of air pollution. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimetre - the size of a sugar cube. Near strong surf or close to a waterfall up to 10.000 negative ions can be found, however the number of negative ions in major capital cities at rush hour does not even reach 100.
The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally, it was found to speed recovery in burn or asthma patients, but was later discovered to affect serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and to positively impact our reactions to sensory stimuli. The greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well being and enhanced human performance on mental tasks.
Ionised air also substantially reduces the number of airborne bacteria indoors. Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishing small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.
Even though they are not a "medical device", Salt Crystal Lamps, by emitting negative ions, significantly reduce a myriad of indoor air pollutants. Negative ions have known benefits, and may provide relief from sinus, migraine headaches allergies and hay fever, reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.
