What is 'Himalayan Salt' and why is it so good?

Salt is essential for life - we cannot live without it.

However, most people simply don't realise that there are enormous differences between the standard, refined table and cooking salt most are accustomed to using and natural health-promoting salt.

These differences can have a major impact on your health. For your body to function properly, it needs holistic salt complete with all-natural elements. Today's common table salt has nothing in common with natural salt. Standard table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt.

Natural Himalayan salt comes from a low-lying region situated in the first foothills of the Himalayas, over an area of approximately 200 square miles, in the northwest of Pakistan. The sea covering this region over 250 million years ago evaporated due to climatic changes. Powerful tectonic movements gave rise to the Himalayan range. The enormous pressure accompanying the buckling of the Earth's crust provoked the formation of cubic crystalline structures comparable to those of precious stones (from the bio-energetical point of view).

Himalayan Salt is over 250 Million Years Old!

This is by far the purest salt available on earth and is absolutely uncontaminated with any toxins or pollutants.

Salt from the Himalayas is known as "white gold." Together with pure spring water, Himalayan Crystal Salt offers all the natural elements exactly identical to the elements in your body -- the very same elements originally found existing in the "primal sea."

 

Table and standard Cooking Salt has been Chemically Cleaned

What remains after typical salt is "chemically cleaned" is sodium chloride -- an unnatural chemical form of salt that your body recognises as something completely foreign. This form of salt is in almost every preserved product that you eat. Therefore, when you add more salt to your already salted food, your body can receive more salt than it can easily dispose of.

This is important as over 90% of the money that people spend on food is for processed food.

Typical table salt crystals are totally isolated from each other. In order for your body to try to metabolize table salt crystals, it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy. And inorganic sodium chloride can keep you from an ideal fluid balance and can overburden your elimination systems.

When your body tries to isolate the excess salt you typically expose it to, water molecules must surround the sodium chloride to break them up into sodium and chloride ions in order to help your body neutralize them. To accomplish this, water is taken from your cells to neutralize the unnatural sodium chloride. This results in a less-than-ideal fluid balance in the cells.

 

After the Salt is mined it is either hand cut to form natural or shaped salt Lamps and Tea-lights or ground down to varying consistencies for use in a variety of ways – such as bath salts, edible salts, salt scrubs and massage stones. It is also used to make “sole” (so-Lay) a salt solution that can diluted and drunk to enhance bodily functions (one teaspoon of Sole to one glass of natural spring or filtered water and drunk every morning on an empty stomach).

 

You loose precious Intracellular Water when you eat Normal Table Salt

 
For every gram of sodium chloride that your body cannot get rid of, your body uses 23 times the amount of cell water to neutralize it. Eating common table salt causes excess fluid in your body tissue, which can contribute to:
  • Unsightly cellulite
  • Rheumatism, arthritis and gout
  • Kidney and gall bladder stones
When you consider that the average person can consume 4,000 to 6,000 mg of sodium chloride each day, and heavy users can ingest as much as 10,000 mg in a day, it is clear that this can be a serious problem.
 

 

 

Today's table and cooking salt is void of the vital trace minerals that make this Himalayan crystal salt so precious. Crystal salt has spent over 250 million years maturing under extreme tectonic pressure, far away from exposure to impurities.

Himalayan Crystal Rock salt's unique structure also stores vibrational energy. All of the crystal salt's inherent minerals and trace elements are available in colloidal form -- meaning they are so small your cells can readily absorb them.
 

 

One of the most common uses of Himalayan Salt is Salt Lamps and Tea-lights. In this form the salt is heated from within by either a low wattage electric bulb or candle flame to produce negative ions, which are beneficial for your home or work environment.

Both Electric Salt Lamps and Tea-lights come is a variety of sizes and shapes with the smallest lamps starting at around 2 to 3kg and going up in size to around 40Kg. Salt Tea-lights can come in one, two or even three candle configurations and are available in a variety of shapes to suit individual needs.
 

 

How to Care for your Salt Lamp

Salt Slab

Salt Slab Cooking 

Salt’s crystal lattice has a fairly high specific energy (energy per unit of mass), so it will tend to hold any temperature you bring it to for a good while. Also, due to its lack of porosity or moisture (.026%), the salt Slabs can be safely heated or chilled to virtually any extreme.

Two other considerations come into play when working with Himalayan Salt Slabs. Their lack of porosity means that the surface area touches your food is minimal. Compared to, say, ground up salt or naturally evaporated salt crystals, these large blocks of salt will impart only a very moderate saltiness. Second, the high quantity of trace minerals (1.2% sulfur, .4% calcium, .35% potassium, .16% magnesium, and 80 other trace minerals) impart a more mild and full taste to the salt, providing another level of flavor complexity to your food.
 
Himalyan Salt Slab Cooking Techniques
a) Arrange thinly sliced Carpaccio or sashimi on a cool Salt Slab and serve. Watch as the food literally salt-cures while at the table, gently cooking the edges and bringing on just a smidge of mineral-rich saltiness.
 
b) Place a Salt Slab in an oven or BBQ. Wait 30 minutes, then remove the tile with a kitchen glove. Set on heat resistant mat at the table, and saute fish, meats, and veggies. While cooking, your food will take on a light saltiness. Note that Himalayan Salt Slabs will often hold heat long enough for repeated grillings before needing to reheat, but that batches will be successively saltier.
 
c) For an out-doorsy variation on the above, place a Salt Slab on the backyard grill, and grill a fennel-and-lemon stuffed monkfish, a lime-and-ginger marinated flank steak, or a balsamic and garlic rubbed Portobello mushroom.
 
d) Freeze a Himalayan Salt Slab for two hours. Remove, and plate up scoops of ice cream or sorbet. More fun yet, warm lightly whipped sweet heavy cream, egg, honey, and aged bitters, and refrigerate. Remove the Salt Slab from freezer, pour mixture on it, slowly lufting with spatula, for a salt-tinged ice custard you will not soon forget.
 
e) Getting back to basics, just use it as a serving platter for butter, cheeses, dried meats, or your daily dose of pickled ginger and wasabe. When used as a plate for moist food such as apple slices and mozzarella, the food acquires an enhanced salt and mineral flavouring.
 
Caring for your Himalayan Salt Plate
After each use, wash your Himalayan Salt Slab with warm water and a soft brush or green scrubby, and tamp dry with a paper towel before setting on a drying rack. This will remove a very thin layer of the salt and make it ready for use again. Treated with care, a large Salt Slab will provide years of service! In addition, the powerful antimicrobial properties of the salt insure that it is always proper and ready for future use, with no need for detergents.

How to use Himalayan Salt in other ways

When water and salt combine, the positive ions of the salt surround the negative ions of the water molecules and the negative ions of the salt surround the positive ions of the water molecules. The ions become hydrolyzed and the geometrical structure of the salt and the water is changed to form a completely new structure.

In this process called hydration, the biophotons (photons emitted spontaneously by all living systems) stored in the crystal salt are set free in the brine, which occurs without any additional energy. This is pure hydration. You can make your own brine right in your own home.

You can start to use crystal salt in this way by putting enough in water and salt in a container until the solution becomes saturated. This solution is called brine and is also referred to as "sole" (so-lay). The crystal salt is available in two forms for your convenience. The larger grains can be dissolved in water for baths.

 

Because well over 90% of the world's salt is being used directly for industrial purposes that require pure sodium chloride. The remaining percentage is used for preserving processes and ends up on your kitchen table.

With the use of rigorous advertising, the salt industry has been successful in convincing us there are actually health advantages to adding potentially toxic iodine and fluoride to salt. In addition, your table salt very often contains potentially dangerous preservatives. Calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, and aluminum hydroxide is often added to improve the ability of table salt to pour. (Aluminum is a light alloy that deposits into your brain -- a potential cause of Alzheimer's disease).
 

 

Himalayan Crystal Salt is salt in its native form, with all its vibrational energy intact and it helps promote a healthy balance in your body. Promoting balanced electrolytes helps to keep your body in homeostasis -- the balance of chemicals that is conducive to the body's function.

The renowned Frezenius Institute in Europe analysed the Himalayan Crystal Salt and proved that it has an amazing array of important trace minerals and elements including potassium, calcium and magnesium that help promote a healthy balance by maintaining fluids and replenishing your supply of electrolytes whenever you sweat heavily. (This salt does not supply iodide, a necessary nutrient.)
