The healing power of Celtic salt and Himalayan salt

Salt is not unhealthy, at least if you take Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt. These are healthy natural salts that contain 84 other minerals and trace elements in addition to sodium chloride. Contrary to what commercial salt sellers claim, there is a big difference between conventional table salt and salt that is extracted from the sea or the Himalayas. Table salt is refined, just like white flour and white sugar. Refined products have been stripped of all nutrients. A refined product is unhealthy and in too large quantities a poison. Consuming unprocessed salt is a very healthy way to meet your daily mineral requirements. NB!

Healthy salt

Himalayan salt, Celtic salt and sea salt are natural salts that have not been refined. As far as sea salt is concerned, land salt may also be called sea salt, even if it consists only of sodium chloride. That is a strange phenomenon. Make sure that if you buy salt, it is unrefined sea salt. Celtic sea salt is the healthiest type of salt. Mainstream science says there is virtually no difference between refined table salt and natural salts. That is chemically incorrect; Naturally obtained salt contains all kinds of minerals and trace elements. These minerals are contained in small quantities, but on the other hand you need a small amount. Salt occurs naturally together with other minerals. If you eat mineral-free table salt, it will naturally bind with minerals in the body; This means you need other minerals more when you eat refined table salt.

Salt in food and drinks

Salt is a delicious addition to our food. Without salt, food has less flavor. Manufacturers know this too; they put large amounts of salt in sauces, soups and even soft drinks. Almost every packaged product contains salt; but the refined kind, which is actually bad for the body because it removes natural minerals. Natural salt contains 84 different types of minerals. Therefore, never again believe people who say that table salt and natural salt make no difference.

The difference between table salt and natural salt

All salt contains sodium chloride. Celtic sea salt contains the least amount of sodium chloride; 90%. Table salt is 99.9% sodium chloride with almost always added iodine and anti-caking agent. The 10% missing in Celtic sea salt compared to table salt is filled by the presence of many healthy minerals. Celtic sea salt is mined in Brittany, Northern France. The extraction process dates back to the time of the Celts and is done through clay layers. The salt is collected, dried and scooped from a large pile of salt. The top layer that is scooped off is called ‘fleur de sel’ which means flower salt. It is the most expensive type of Celtic salt. Other parts are grayer and contain more trace elements from the clay. That doesn’t mean you’re eating clay; it’s just gray salt.

Making sole

A solution is made from Celtic salt. Which is added to drinking water. The solution is called ‘sole’ and consists of 1/3 salt and 2/3 water. You are actually making purified seawater because this is exactly the ratio that makes up most seawater in the world. If you store this in a dark place, it will last for years. You use it by adding a teaspoon of it to a glass of water and drinking it first thing in the morning. The great thing about the minerals in seawater is that they exactly match the minerals in your blood. You could actually say that the sea is the blood of Gaia, the earth.

Minerals, good for people, animals and plants

Sole, the Celtic sea salt solution is not only healthy for people but also for animals and plants. A teaspoon of sole in a liter of water is suitable for watering plants or giving animals a drink. If you realize that animals instinctively make the right food choices, you could let an animal choose between water with added sole and plain water. If you give it to a plant you must be careful with it; you can give a plant too much salt. Consider what wonderful consequences this mineral wisdom can have for agriculture. You can simply enrich depleted soil with seawater! It has been traditional practice for farmers in coastal regions to cultivate the soil with seaweed for hundreds of years; Of course, it also contains all the sea minerals.

Rene Quinton

Rene Quinton (1866-1925) was a French scientist known, among other things, by the nickname ‘the French Darwin’. He discovered that the mineral composition of the sea matched that of human blood. That gave him the idea of injecting seawater into sick people, which led to healing in many cases. It is not at all strange to inject sea salt into blood; Today, ordinary table salt or sodium chloride is injected against hyperchloremia (too high chloride levels) and hypernatremia (too high sodium levels). RenĂ© Quinton has even injected people with diluted seawater instead of a blood transfusion with great success. His method is very cheap and, as is often the case in our money-driven world, the pharmaceutical industry viewed his spectacular healing results with dismay. They made it illegal to treat people this way.

Salt offers healing power

Taking salt has been dismissed as quackery; but there is no evidence for that at all. Previously, there is evidence that salt and the minerals contained in sea salt and Himalayan salt have medicinal properties against various diseases. Sea salt gives the body a sensation of harmony. This makes you less likely to give in to addictions such as smoking tobacco, alcohol, drinking coffee and eating sweets. In addition, it stimulates the metabolism. It detoxifies your digestive tract. The most important effect of salt is that it is good for homeostasis. Homeostasis is a balance in dynamic processes. Our body is such a process. It is the whole of the nervous system and organs that indicates through information exchange which substances are needed where. Hormones ensure balance in the blood and neurotransmitters in the nervous system. Healthy salt such as Himalayan salt and Celtic salt promote homeostasis. Not table salt; that is at most good enough to keep your sidewalk ice-free in the winter, but it serves no medicinal purpose.

Where can you buy natural salt?

In 2015, Celtic sea salt is increasingly available in health food stores. It is also possible to order this product on the internet. Himalayan salt can be found in some supermarkets. Using this type of salt is much healthier than table salt to which synthetic iodine has been added. Synthetic iodine does not resemble organic iodine, which is found in natural salts, among other things.
