Absolutely Pristine and Natural!
Regular consumption of natural salt provides your body with natural minerals, trace elements and living energy. This will help balance the electrolytes in fluids of your body, support proper nutrient absorption and toxin elimination. Common table salt has been refined and reduced to pure sodium chloride, acting as poison in your body. For your body to function properly, you need whole natural salt with all its natural elements intact. Himalayan Crystal Salt offers all 84 elements, exactly identical to the elements in your body, and is vital for:
- Regulating the water content throughout your body
- Balancing excess acidity from your cells, particularly your brain cells
- Balancing your blood sugar levels and helping to reduce your aging rate
- Absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract
- Clearing calcifications (arthritis & bone spurs from random deposits)
- Stabilizing irregular heartbeats and blood pressure
- Natural antihistamine to clear congestion (particularly useful in asthma and cystic fibrosis)
Our Himalayan Crystal Salt is of the purest, highest grade salt that has been formed for over 250 million years under enormous pressure, maturing without exposure to pollutants. Over time, its energy was built up, forming a crystalline structure with a high concentration of life force energy. Carefully harvested by hand (without explosives & heavy machinery), the life force within our salt is preserved. Contains all the minerals that are vital for the human body.
As originally suspended in sea water - the only form that is completely compatible with the human body! It is unpolluted salt without environmental poisons as we know today like heavy metal contamination and contains all the 84 elements in ionic form that can be immediately absorbed and assimilated into our body. The crystal structure of the Himalayan Crystal Salt is like a homeopathic remedy, in a very high potency that contains all the information of the primordial sea, the basics of all physical life!
Himalayan Crystal Salt is Vital For:
- Cells' communication & information processing for your entire life - from the moment of conception to death.
- Extraction of excess acidity from your cells, particularly brain cells.
- Balancing sugar levels in your blood (critical for diabetics).
- Generating hydroelectric energy in your cells.
- Absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract.
- Clearing your lungs of mucus plugs and sticky phlegm, particularly in asthma and cystic fibrosis.
- Clearing up catarrh and congestion of the sinuses.
- A strong natural antihistamine.
- Prevention of muscle cramps.
- Prevention of excess saliva production to the point that it flows out of the mouth during sleep. Needing to constantly mop up excess saliva indicates salt shortage.
- Making the structure of your bones firm. Osteoporosis, in a major way, is a result of salt and water shortage in the body (27% of your body's salt is in your bones). Osteoporosis results when the body needs more salt and takes it from the body. Bones are 22% water. Is it not obvious what happens to the bones when we're deficient in salt or water or both?
- Sleep regulation - a natural hypnotic.
- On your tongue will stop persistent dry coughs.
- Prevention of gout and gouty arthritis.
- Maintaining sexuality and libido.
- Preventing varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and thighs.
- Most effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and, although table salt (sodium chloride) causes high blood pressure, Himalayan Crystal Salt is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure - in conjunction with water. Naturally the proportions are critical.
- Reducing a double chin. When the body is short of salt, it means the body really is short of water. The salivary glands sense the salt shortage and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that it needs for breaking down foods. Circulation to the salivary glands increases and the blood vessels become "leaky" in order to supply the glands with water to manufacture saliva. The "leakiness" spills beyond the area of the glands themselves, causing increased bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks and into the neck.
- Contains about 84 mineral elements that your body needs, some are needed in trace amounts. Himalayan Crystal Salt is a better choice of salt than other types of salt on the market. Ordinary table salt that is bought in the super markets has been stripped of its companion elements and contains additives such as aluminum silicate to keep it powdery and porous, and aluminum which is a very toxic in your nervous system. It is implicated as one of the primary issues associated with Alzheimer's disease.
- And last but not least: you won't need any supplements if you drink the Himalayan Crystal Salt every day. It will give you all the minerals your body needs and you can see that your skin becomes smoother, it helps to get rid of cellulite and your body is being rejuvenated from inside out!
Be Conscious of Your Salt & Water Quality!
To date, scientific interest in the biophysical qualities of salt has been slight, therefore little research has been done. 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 than 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 people who 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 energized 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.
Natural Salt in Your Body!
Healthy human body fluid (70% by weight) contains a balance of minerals and trace elements, including salt. Pure crystal salt helps balance your bodily fluids - essential for health. Natural sea salt contains a balance of minerals and trace elements, nearly equivalent to the body's cellular fluid. But today, the sea can be loaded with toxins, and therefore is becoming not as good a source for supplementation. Himalayan Crystal Salt contains a natural balance of minerals and trace elements, present in colloidal form: small enough to absorb through the cellular membrane, making it ideal for efficient and successful absorption. It is almost impossible to absorb too much.
High blood pressure does not result, and low blood pressure is raised. Most people are salt deficient, despite being overloaded with sodium chloride. The unbalanced refined salt intake leads to water retention and bloating, as the body attempts to balance the minerals it is unable to excrete. In this process, water is taken from your cells as the body sacrifices its structured cell water in order to neutralize sodium chloride. The dehydrated body cells die, while the fluid between the cells remains too rich in minerals. The result of consuming common refined table salt is the formation of acidic edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue. That's why doctors tell us to avoid salt.
The body uses 23 times the weight of salt in water to neutralize the salt. Water and Himalayan Crystal Salt regulate the water content of the body. Water itself regulates the water content of the interior of the cell by working its way into all of the cells it reaches. It has to get there to cleanse and extract the toxic wastes of cell metabolisms. Himalayan Crystal Salt forces some water to stay outside the cells. It balances the amount of water that stays outside the cells. There are two oceans of water in the body; one ocean is held inside the cells of the body, and the other ocean is held outside the cells.
Good health depends on a most delicate balance between the volume of these oceans, and this balance is achieved by Himalayan Crystal Salt - unrefined! When water is available to get inside the cells freely, it is filtered from the outside salty ocean and injected into the cells that are being overworked despite their water shortage. This is the reason why in severe dehydration we develop an edema and retain water. The design of our bodies is such that the extent of the ocean of water outside the cells is expanded to have the extra water available for filtration and emergency injection into vital cells. The brain commands an increase in salt and water retention by the kidneys. This is how we get an edema when we don't drink enough water.
Initially, the process of water filtration and its delivery into the cells is more efficient at night when the body is horizontal. The collected water that mostly pools in the legs does not have to fight the force of gravity to get onto the blood circulation. If reliance of this process of emergency hydration of some cells continues for long, the lungs begin to get waterlogged at night, and breathing becomes difficult. The person needs more pillows to sit upright to sleep. This condition is the consequence of dehydration. However, you might overload the system by drinking too much water at the beginning. Increases in water intake must be slow and spread out until urine production begins to increase at the same rate that you drink water.
When we drink enough water to pass clear urine, we also pass out a lot of the salt that was held back. This is how we can get rid of edema fluid in the body: by drinking more water. Not diuretics, but more water!! In people who have an extensive edema and show signs of their heart beginning to have irregular or very rapid beats with least effort, the increase in water intake should be gradual and spaced out, but not withheld from the body. Naturally, Himalayan Crystal Salt intake should be limited for two or three days because the body is still in an overdrive mode to retain it. Once the edema has cleared up, Himalayan Crystal Salt should not be withheld from the body.
Natural Crystal Salt's History!
Throughout human history, natural salt has been treated like treasure. It was called white gold, and was the subject of political maneuvers and wars. Roman soldiers were actually paid with salt, which is reflected in the word salary. Salt was more important for survival than gold. Throughout Europe, the salt transportation routes became the basis of all commerce. It was only one hundred years ago (with the advent of industrialization) that we initiated our disconnection from nature and her ways. 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 aether, 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. Crystal salt from the Himalayas is considered the king's salt. It is also known as the "white gold" or "salt of life". This is not surprising, since the word salt comes from sun (sol).
Salt Intake is Vital!
Salt is a vital substance for the survival of all living creatures, particularly humans. Water and salt regulate the water content of the body. Water itself regulates the water content of the interior of the cell by working its way into all of the cells it reaches. It has to get there to cleanse and extract the toxic wastes of cell metabolisms. Salt forces some water to stay outside the cells. It balances the amount of water that stays outside the cells.

"Water: Rx for a Healthier Pain-Free Life".
Everything is Poisonous if Overdosed!
Also remember that all is relative. George Ohsawa said "There are no poisons in nature, only too much Yin or Yang." It's all about balance - health IS balance. And balance is always, on any level, about Yin and Yang. Modern science has not understood this, so it just calls stuff that disturbs your balance at one or another level "poison", without being aware what it actually is that makes stuff poisonous: its ability to create imbalance at some level in the body's chemistry. Any physical or chemical system must be in a state of balance in order to function and remain stable, too much imbalance and it will either cease to function correctly, or disintegrate (or both).
As for salt, it is Yang - in fact the most Yang food eaten by humans. Himalayan salt is probably much more Yang than common sea salt because it has been under pressure for millions of years (pressure makes things more Yang). My personal experience with Himalayan salt also seem to indicate this. The Yin antagonist (the opposite) to salt in the body, is potassium. If the balance between sodium and potassium is disturbed, you'll get ill. It doesn't take much excess potassium to kill you actually - about 8 grams of potassium chloride, dissolved in water and injected into the bloodstream, will cause instant heart failure.
It's actually the lethal ingredient in those injections given to people sentenced to death. So be careful with potassium chloride - also ingested orally. I never take more than -1 gram at a time, if I feel I need some to balance myself. Salt is generally tolerated in a much larger amount than potassium. Actually, many years ago I ate from 40 up to 60 grams (and the high doses only occasionally) of unrefined sea salt a day during several months, and as you can see I'm still alive. I did drink a lot - including a lot of carrot and dandelion juice, which contain a lot of potassium. If you only drink water and don't eat food with a lot of potassium, you may get into trouble with such doses.
One of the reasons I did this was that I discovered that I was very imbalanced at that time - much too Yin. In order to remedy that, I started eating a lot of salt and other Yang foods. Because I was so Yin, my body could also tolerate (neutralize) large amounts of salt (Yang) - in fact, it gave me an incredible energy (this is obvious, actually, if you understand how Yin and Yang works). I was almost a "salt addict" at that time, I literally got an energy kick from eating these large amounts of salt. However, as I became more balanced over time, both from eating much salt and other Yang foods, the effect changed. Too much salt and I got tired instead (can be a sign of both too much Yin or too much Yang btw).
I still eat a fair amount of salt - 5-10 grams a day, since I'm Yin "by nature" but I can't handle those large doses anymore, because I've become much more Yang over time. I simply get sick from too much Yang if I eat those amounts now. So how much salt you need and can tolerate depends very much on your current Yin Yang balance. If you want to know how to determine your Yin Yang balance, read some books on Macrobiotics (don't believe everything in those books, the Yin Yang stuff is generally OK though). Yin Yang theory is very simple really, and when you understand this Yin Yang balance thing and how it expresses itself physiologically and mentally, you'll find that there a many different ways to balance yourself, keeping yourself healthy.
Food, drugs and chemicals is just some of them. ORMUS will also affect your balance - I haven't tried the stuff myself but I'd guess it's either Yang (Yang produce light, energy, activity), or has a very strong capability to restore your overall balance. Anyway, like they say, don't try this at home. It was sort of an experiment, and one of the things I learned from it is not to exaggerate anything, in order to get faster results, it can be hazardous and it usually don't work very well. BTW, Kervran made some experiments back in the 1959 that seem to indicate that the body can actually transmute elements into others, including sodium (salt) into potassium, under the right circumstances, as described in his book " Biological Transmutations".
