Hand-harvested and minimally processed, the pink salt retains most of its natural nutrients, unlike the over-processed table salt many of us use. Crystallized over 250 million years ago, ancient sea beds were covered by lava, protecting the salt from modern-day pollution, and lending to the belief that Himalayan Pink salt is the purest salt to be found on earth. Himalayan pink salt can be used for cooking, in spa treatments and in cosmetics. It can also be used as a natural healing treatment.
Better Than Salt
Himalayan pink salt isn’t your average table salt. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements that are highly beneficial for the body including magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium and iron. Regular consumption of Himalayan pink salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, normalizes blood pressure, and increases circulation and conductivity.
Aside from being a much healthier alternative to salt, Himalayan pink salt serves up a healthy dose of healing for tired, aching muscles, skin rashes, arthritis, herpes, and flu and fever symptoms. Taking regular saltwater baths with Himalayan pink salt to aid in detoxification, to strengthen the immune system, heal skin diseases, relieve rheumatism and joint diseases, balance the skin’s pH, and aid in recovery after surgery.
Just as bathing in the brine might be therapeutic for a range of conditions, drinking a glass of brine every morning is thought to contribute to the overall health and well-being of the body. According to Minnesota Wellness Publications, a nonprofit health and wellness organization, Himalayan salt contains “eons of stored sunlight energy,” which, when combined with spring water and consumed, provides the “complex mineral foundation for life to emerge, to be maintained and sustained.” Drinking a sole (water & pink salt) solution every morning balances the body’s pH level, normalize blood pressure, dissolve sediment that causes kidney and gall bladder stone and arthritis, reduce cravings for addictive substances and clear skin disease by cleansing toxins from the body. However, do not use Himalayan pink salt as a replacement for conventional medicine. Consult a doctor before using Himalayan pink salt as an alternative medicine.
