Pink Himalayan Salt Benefits that Make It Superior to Table Salt
Top 5 Benefits of Pink Himalayan Salt
There are many awesome health benefits of Himalayan salt, with the following as some of my favorites.
1. Improves Respiratory Problems
According to the Lung Institute, salt is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucus clearance, removes pathogens in the air like pollen, and decreases IgE level (immune system oversensitivity). (7) If you Google “Himalayan salt cave,” you see that there are now salt caves made of Himalayan salt all over the country (and world) so people can experience the beneficial health effects, especially when it comes to the respiratory system.
There is actually a term for this type of natural treatment. It’s called halotherapy. Derived from the Greek word for salt, “halos,” halotherapy or salt therapy is the inhalation of micronized dry salt within a chamber that mimics a salt cave. Studies have shown halotherapy to be a highly effective drug-free part of successfully treating chronic bronchitis. (8)
2. Balances Body’s pH
Pink Himalayan sea salt’s rich mineral content can help balance your body’s pH levels. You may think this is no big deal, but when your pH has a healthy acid-to-alkaline ratio, it makes a huge difference in your overall health. A proper pH helps foster your immunity and encourage good digestion. Since pink Himalayan salt contains sodium as well as other electrolytes, it has a direct effect on the pH of your blood.
Thanks for sharing Jade. A few weeks ago Brenda was telling me about Himalayan salt lamps and when we went to a shopping centre we don't go to very often, they had them for sale, I was going to buy one, but didn't have enough money with me. Since then we found a nearby pharmacy that has them, so I'll be getting and also get one for Tansy as she has a lot of sinus problems like me.
Since discovering sole, I start my day with a teaspoon of this powerfully detoxing and rejuvenating elixir. Because it requires only himalayan salt (or Real Salt), water, and a jar, this health treatment is accessible and affordable for everyone.
Sole is water fully saturated with unrefined salt. When himalayan salt dissolves in water, it results in a concentrated, electrically charged matrix of the 84 trace minerals in the salt. The ionic salt and trace minerals nourish each cell in your body.
The benefits of himalayan salt sole include:
Detoxifies the body by balancing systemic pH
Improves hydration by providing trace minerals
Improves mineral status of the body
Reduces muscle cramps by improving minerals and hydration
Helps balance blood sugar
Supports hormone balance for everyone, no matter what hormonal issues you face
Helps balance blood pressure because it provides unrefined, mineral-rich salt in an ionic solution
Improves sleep by supporting blood sugar and hormone balance
Acts as a powerful antihistamine
Supports weight loss by balancing hormones and improving energy
Supports thyroid and adrenal function (Source and read more benefits!)
How to make Salt Sole:
Fill a glass jar about 1/4 of the way with himalayan salt (or Real Salt or celtic sea salt), either ground or in chunks. Fill the rest of the way with filtered water. Add a plastic lid (not metal!), shake and let sit overnight. You should always have some undissolved salt in the jar, this means the water is fully saturated. Add more salt if needed.
In the morning, take 1 tsp. of sole, mixed into some room temperature water, upon waking. Never use metal utensils with your sole!
Keep refilling your jar with salt and water when it runs low. It lasts indefinitely.
We put the salt lamp in the bedroom the first night we got it, we both slept well, but next morning I was full of gunk and my sinuses playing up. We moved the lamp to the kitchen, but every time I got close to it, I could feel my sinuses gunking up. Anyway, I've turned it off to see if I improve, it may be just a coincidence that I got bad the night we had it on.
I have been using Himalayan salt for years now, it's wonderful, but you should also use you're iodine salt two, mix and so forth. Bc our bodies need both. I can't for some reason get into the salt lamps you put up Gerald? I'll try again later. I also have a salt lamp in my room, it doesn't seem any different to me, mine must be a fake . Everyone wants you're money It's awful how they make you think you're getting something good and it's fake, well at least it's pretty.
Ok take care. Feel better Jim, I'm always thinking of you! Big huggies!
