Common Uses

The amazing benefits that Himalayan crystal salt can provide, as reported by leading Internet physician Dr Joseph Mercola (www.mercola.com):

Regulates the water content throughout your body
Balances excess acidity from your cells, particularly the brain cells
Regulates your blood pressure, in conjunction with water
Stabilises irregular heartbeats
Balances your blood sugar levels and helps reduce your aging rate
Assists in the generation of hydroelectric energy in your body's cells
Enhances absorption of nutrients through the intestinal tract
Helps clear mucous plugs and phlegm from the lungs, particularly useful in asthma and cystic fibrosis
Acts as a strong natural antihistamine to help clear up congestion in your sinus
Prevents muscle cramps
Strengthens bone structure. Osteoporosis can occur when your body needs more salt and takes it from your bones
Regulates sleep: It is a natural hypnotic
Helps maintain your libido
Prevents varicose veins and spider veins

Salt has many other functions and health benefits as discussed in the book The Essential Guide to Water and Salt:

Vital for the kidneys to clear excess acidity into the urine
Increases conductivity in nerve cells for communication and information processing
Provides your body with all essential mineral and every necessary trace mineral it needs to thrive
Helps treat emotional disorders. Lithium is a salt substitute that is used in the treatment of depression
Preserves serotonin and melatonin levels in the brain, known antidepressant neurotransmitters
Is a strong anti-stress element for the body
Helps maintain muscle tone and strength

In the opinion of Dr Batmanghelidj+, salt and water is vital for the prevention and treatment of cancer, as dehydration (shortage of water and salt) suppresses the immune system and its disease-fighting cells activity in the body
Natural salt is also a vital element in the treatment of diabetics as it helps regulate the sugar levels in the blood.

Suggested Dosage

How much healthy salt should you consume?
Do not overuse salt. You must observe the ratio of salt and water needs of the body. As a rough rule of thumb, for optimum health benefits you need about 3 grams of salt (a half teaspoon) for every 10 glasses of water. If you exercise and sweat, you may need more. In hot climates you may need more, as salt and water will make the difference between good health and constant heat exhaustion. Consult with your physician or wellness practitioner about the benefits of salt for you.

Understanding the role sodium plays in the body, and the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ sources of sodium, will help you get the bad salt out of your diet while still satisfying your body’s need for a source of high quality sodium.

Sodium Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)
The current recommendation in the US is to consume less than 2,400 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day. This is no more than 1 teaspoon of salt per day. It includes ALL salt and sodium consumed, including sodium used in cooking, at the table, and in pre-prepared foods. The UK Recommended Nutritional Intake (RNI) upper limit for sodium is 1,600 mg, including sodium used in cooking, at the table, and in pre-prepared foods. Remember, you will obtain benefit from salt intake only if your water intake is sufficient.

Health Information

Himalayan Harvest - a healthy mineral food

The ratios of minerals in Himalayan crystal salt almost exactly mirror that which is found in an ideally healthy human body.

An analysis of Himalayan Harvest reveals that it provides many minerals and trace elements. We have provided the results of our own test below. This is just one analysis that we have conducted using technology available in New Zealand. It is a known fact that Himalayan salt has all known elements and minerals in trace form imprinted into its geometrical structure. Although we have not yet been able to show that with current available tests in New Zealand, more advanced testing procedures have been conducted in Germany that prove the existence of all elements on the periodic table. Elements are only needed by the body in tiny amounts and must be in their natural organic form, and not a synthetic laboratory equivalent, to be of any use to the body.

Note the presence of natural iodine, selenium, zinc and many other trace elements from our own test by Crop & Food Research. Many of these are missing from New Zealand’s own soils, in part due to excessive chemical fertilizers. Another interesting point is that we also tested some ‘clay’ looking substance that we found in the crystal salt, and that identified more minerals that did not show up in the salt itself, including titanium and nickel, therefore showing that the presence of all trace elements will be ‘felt’ within the salt itself. We sometimes only need the ‘frequency’ of the mineral or element for our bodies to obtain its energy.

It is also worth noting that Sodium Chloride only, is often referred to as ‘salt’, however Himalayan Harvest salt contains the other earthly minerals and elements in trace form. The ratios of the minerals in the Himalayan crystal salt almost exactly mirror that which is found in an ideally healthy human body.
