We have all heard that salt is not good for you and you shouldn't use so much. In fact table salt is 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. It is refined and processed and has very little to do with the actual salt that is produced naturally.
This highly processed salt stores excess fluid in the body's tissues. For every gram (0.035 oz) of sodium chloride that your body cannot absorb, your body uses twenty-three times the amount of valuable cell water to neutralize this salt. The body then re-crystalizes table salt using animal proteins which is available to your body and these cannot be broken down or eliminated. The next step is that these proteins produce uric acid to get rid of the excess salt. This uric acid stays in the body and binds with sodium chloride to form new crystals which are deposited directly into the bones and joints and this is what can cause different forms of arthritis and gout and also gall bladder and/or kidney stones. The answer to this dilemma can be salt! Not your processed table salt though. Himalayan salt crystals were formed over 250 million years ago under enormous pressure. These natural salt crystals can balance your body and also detoxify it. They are available at health food stores and are relatively inexpensive considering how amazing they are for your body.
One of the most basic applications is to drink one teaspoon of sole (salt solution) in a glass filled with good quality drinking water. Best taken on an empty stomach, I drink it every day upon wakening. The sole (salt solution) is easy to make and maintain. Just put several of the Himalayan salt crystals in a glass container and add good quality water until the container is full. If, after 24 hours the crystals have dissolved completely, just add a few more crystals, until the water can no longer absorb any more salt crystals - i.e. the crystals will sit at the bottom without dissolving. This means that the solution is saturated at 26%. Every day put 1 teaspoon of this solution in a glass of water and drink this on an empty stomach.
This will balance your body. It is only when the body is in balance that it is ready to neutralize disease. This is a great way to ensure that you are doing the best for your body, and it is cheap and easy to do. Another option is to immerse a clean cotton towel into the sole solution, wring it out a little and apply directly to sore joints. Cover this with a dry towel to keep the moisture in. You will find it very soothing for joint pain.
Also the good news is that you can also buy this Himalayan salt ready crushed to use as table salt. You will find it slightly pink in color and it has a great taste. After using this for a while, you will never want to go back to the harsh taste of table salt ever again.
