Wondering About the Benefits of Himalayan Salt?

We had our expert weigh in on the benefits of Himalayan salt and here is his feedback.

Salt is salt... right?

Salt may be salt, but not all salt is the same.  For example, So Well Fair Trade Gourmet Himalayan salt is rich with 84 minerals and is easily absorbed by the body.  Other salts?  Not so much! It is important to understand the differences and how Himalayan salt can help you.

Himalayan Salt vs Sea Salt

Natural Health Expert Answers
The Benefits of Himalayan Salt

My Name is  Walt Ingvolstad and I am a Natural Health Therapist and Coach with So Well.  I have been helping people feel better for over 20 years.

Himalayan salt is one of my 5 most recommended food/frequency substances that contribute to robust vitality, mental clarity and high immune function or illness/cold/flu prevention.

Allow me to give you a broad description of Himalayan salt, why it is a unique type of salt and why it is so very important to have some every day.

Himalayan salt is profoundly amazing. It is 200 million plus years old and has been nurtured by earth energy and pressure over this time. This ancient sea salt has been alchemized over millions of years into a special energized crystalline form in a process analogous to how coal gradually becomes a diamond. The 84 minerals in this salt are in an ionic form which is molecular instead of colloidal like regular sea salt. It is therefore more easily absorbable and much more use-able by our bodies than any sea salt. 

Himalayan Salt vs Sea Salt

Sea salt because of its relatively large size is difficult for the body to digest and use whereas ionic Himalayan salt is molecular and virtually no digestion is required. 

Why not ingest sea salt? 

Sea salt may dehydrate the body whereas Himalayan salt actually hydrates our tissue! Sea salt is difficult to digest and assimilate for our bodies because it is not At the organic mineral electrolyte size which is immediately usable in our blood and cells. No digestion is required for Himalayan Salt. It is therefore immediately available for use throughout the body shortly after drinking some dissolved in water - unlike sea salt! When in solution with water it becomes a solution referred to as Sole, which is electrical in nature and no longer molecular! Because the sole is electrical in nature, it therefore imparts energy for our bodies to use that other foods do not contain. Many sensitive people feel the energy from the salt immediately upon drinking a glass of the sole added – I find this is true for at least 1 of 10 people who sample it when I am present. See how you feel after drinking it! 

What Other Doctors Are Saying About the Benefits of Himalayan Salt

Peter Ferreira is a biological physicist who collaborated with Dr. Barbara Hendel on the book, “Salt and Water”. He discusses how the Himalayan Crystal salt has a near perfect crystalline structure - unlike sea salt that contributes the unique crystalline energy to the salt water matrix which is then contributes to our energy for up to 24 hours or more. Sea salt does not have the energetic nature of the Himalayan Salt. Sea salt is still an important nutrient that feeds the pro-biotics or friendly bacteria in our digestive tract. Himalayan salt is often directly absorbed right through our stomach lining before reaching our digestive tract especially when consumed in water on an empty stomach. It has an immediate, profound beneficial effect upon our blood health and immediately stimulates our red blood cells thereby activating the efficiency of our oxygen transport system!

Minerals are the foundational nutrient for the entire body. Every process in the body requires minerals and enzymes. Studies have shown that everyone with a disease has at least one major mineral deficiency. Mineral deficiencies are also present with those dying of natural causes. Organic minerals at a molecular level are also referred to as electrolytes. When we look at the word electro-lytes we can see this: Electrons “turning” the lights on --- eg. We ARE electrical energy beings first and foremost and these electrolytes help to increase our energy, balance and add to every system of our body thru the action of their vibration or the unique signature of each of the 84 minerals that are present and their associated electrons.

All Natural Care with Himalayan Salt

The use of all-natural PERSONAL care products is increasing world wide. As consumers become more knowledgeable about the bad air inside and outside their homes, they are seeing the negative effects of such exposure on their skin, hair, body, and as well as the harm these chemicals have on the environment.  
Himalayan Salt is an ancient treatment with amazing results for today’s health issues. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, discovered the therapeutic qualities of seawater by observing the healing affects it had on the injured hands of fishermen. Under massive pressure over millions of years, Himalayan Crystal Salt is one of the purest and healthiest salts you can ingest. It contains all the elements of which the human body consists of. When ingesting the salt or adding it to your bath water, the result is astounding.

Bathing with Himalayan Crystal Salt Bath Crystals is highly recommended by many healthcare professionals. The energy revitalizing sole bath can either help in detoxifying the body or aiding the body in absorbing its 84 essential trace minerals through the skin. This natural, untreated salt contains a high crystalline structure allowing nutrients to be naturally absorbed at the cellular level resulting in body purification. There are a number of important steps when preparing and taking a Himalayan Salt Bath:

  • When you begin to run the bath water, add one cup of Himalayan Bath Salt. The Salt Crystal will dissolve by the time the bath is ready.
  • Soak for 20-30 minutes. Refrain from towel drying.
  • It is suggested that you take a 15-20 minute rest after the bath.

The number of times a week a salt bath should be taken varies. Generally speaking, it is recommended you take a salt bath 2 - 4 times a week. For specific skin or health conditions, the number would increase.

As the minerals are absorbed in the body by the warmth, the alkaline/acidity balance harmonize and blood pressure will normalize. Skin conditions will be cleansed as bacteria, toxins, and other debris are pulled out. Your skin will be stimulated and rejuvenated. It has a strong purifying and re-mineralizing effect. Energy levels are restored and provide amazing relaxation. Crystal salt baths like our Natural bath soaks can alleviate many problems that include: aches, pains, skin conditions, lung/breathing problems, and helps to beautify your skin.

Crystal Salt's assortment of elements form a compound in which each molecule is inter-connected. This allows the vibration component of the 84 trace elements in the salt to be in sync with each other and adds to its ability to promote a healthy balance.

The Crystal Salt from the Himalayas does not harm your body. With powerful effective feedback loops regulating the absorption process, it is difficult to absorb too much crystal salt. Natural crystal salt always promotes a healthy balance and does not contribute to high blood pressure like table salt. When it comes to the role of natural salt, nothing matches Himalayan Crystal Salt

Understanding the Salt Factor

Table salt is different from salt from natural sources. It has been processed to remove most of the natural elements. Grocery store salt consists of mostly chemical sodium chloride. If the sodium chloride is too high, re-crystallization of the table salt takes place. It poisons the system because those substances cannot be eliminated. A natural salt like Himalayan Crystal salt can provide good health. It eliminates harmful bacteria and toxins from your body so there is no toxic build up. Unlike many other sea salts, Natural Himalayan crystal salt is pure, uncontaminated, unrefined, and contains up to 84 natural minerals.

Placing Himalayan salts in your bath or drinking water provides relaxation and relief, detoxification, essential body nourishment, and improves circulation. All these factors make natural Himalayan Crystal Salt an essential tool to combat Fibromyalgia, chronic lung problems, allergies, and helps to rejuvenate your skin to a healthy state. These factors make Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt an essential method to achieving good health and well being.
