Himalayan Salt Benefits

Himalayan salt benefits – I began using Himalayan crystal rock salt and sole in 2004 when I met Rose from Heartfeltliving Natural Health Products who made an appointment with me when I had my herb shop in Victoria BC, Canada,  to show me her line of Himalayan crystal rock salts.  She explained and showed me lab results  which point out it is important to have the rocks tested for contaminates before bringing them into Canada; she also chooses rocks which have been manually removed to preserve the energy of the rock. I was truly impressed when I could feel the difference between a manually removed Himalayan crystal rock lamp and one that was removed with dynamite. 

Himalayan salt benefits are health promoting and are known to help ailments such as low and high blood pressure, muscle cramps, gout, blood sugar and digestive issues which are just some conditions that show there is a mineral deficiency.   Those who take Himalayan brine noticed blood pressure issues go away shortly after taking the brine daily, making it a great high blood pressure natural remedy.

Why I use Heartfeltliving Himalayan Crystal Salt
Himalayan Salt Benefits

Himalayan Crystal Salt comes from the salt range approximately 200 km south of the Himalayan Mountain chain. It is 100% pure and the most beneficial salt available on the market. The process of collection is carried out by traditional methods such as breaking the rocks by hand, sorting, washing in sole and drying in the sun. This process preserves the energy of the Himalayan Crystal Salt. Himalayan Crystal Salt is a 100% natural product with high bio-energetic quality, without additives, containing all the minerals and trace elements that are required by the body.  Rose makes sure by having the salt she purchases is pure, therefore she has it tested in Germany for contamination before she accepts the crystal rocks.

When I began to take Himalayan brine on a regular basis I could not believe the benefits after one month.  I began using Himalayan brine for when I noticed that,  due to life’s stressors,  I was not getting enough minerals from my diet to maintain my health. At that time I was living in a city with chlorinated water, was the owner of a herbal dispensary and clinic and practiced in the clinic, and was drinking reverse osmosis water, was experiencing more stimulation from noise and electricity, and my life was full and busy doing what my husband and I truly enjoyed.  Our body does not know the difference between too much good or bad stress; too much stimulation either way can affect our nervous system and especially our digestion.  One of the health benefits of taking a full spectrum salt that is it aids in digestion by assisting in the process of hydrochloric acid secretion necessary for the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, which is how we get our essential nutrients needed for good health.

Salt has been around for over 250 million years, and humans have been using salt as far back as 6050 BC.  Salts are helpful for all biological activities and have the most “grounding” descending activity of any substance used as food.

Salt  is one of five flavors we need in our diet, the other four are bitter, sour, pungent and sweet, and in order to maintain health our salt needs to come from whole sources such as sea vegetable (kelp, bladder wrack, Dulse) Miso, umeboshi plum, Himalayan crystal salt, and tamari sauce.

It is best to eliminate common table salt which is 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents and iodine. Table salt is also dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit; the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt and is known to cause health problems such as:

cellulite, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, kidney and gallbladder stones

Himalayan salt benefits - sometimes in the autumn or winter I can suffer from sinus and lung congestion due to a cold or flu. As soon as I feel it go into my lungs I will do a Himalayan brine or salt crystal face steam, deeply inhaling the steam and allowing it to move deep into my lungs. I do this twice for 10 minutes with a 15 minute break in between. This is a great lung cleanse and helps expel the dry sticky phlegm that causes a dry cough and asthma.

Animal Friends - Natural Healing for Pets

When we lived in the city and were using reverse osmosis water, the dogs and cats would not drink it unless they had to; they preferred he rain water outside.  I then remembered that reverse osmosis water does not have minerals, nor does distilled water, therefore it is important to add the minerals into the purified water. Once I began to add Himalayan brine to their water bowl they preferred that water over the rain water. Animals can be so smart!  

We can use Himalayan crystal rocks for our animal friends the same way we would use it.


Add to their food - amounts depends on their weight:

  • Small dog or cat – 1/8 tsp. to morning meal
  • Medium dog – ¼ tsp. to morning meal
  • Large dog – ½ tsp to morning meal
  • Extra-large dog – 1 tsp. to morning meal
