Water and Salt – partners for life

The water that constitutes your body is virtually identical to seawater.
It’s salty!

Salt water planet

Living organisms are mostly water – approximately 70% in the case of the human body.
Our planet is also a living body. Salty ocean waters (from which life is believed to have evolved) cover 71% of it.

The ionic composition of seawater and your internal environment (human blood plasma, interstitial fluids and lymph) are almost the same in mineral make-up.* Together, water and salt enable life.

Water and salt enable life

Water is the universal solvent that enables an elaborate biochemistry based on salt solutions. Minerals constitute these salt solutions and are essential to metabolic activity – that which empowers life and sustains your health.

Contemporary misconceptions about salt

Our contemporary conception of salt has been reduced to the white granules that are always at arms length in eating places and about which we have been warned to minimize our consumption. Refined ‘table salt’ is sodium chloride, often with aluminum silicate added to make it pour smoothly.

This man-ipulated substance is indeed a cellular poison, stripped of the original properties of naturally occurring salt which has profound healing qualities.

For good reason, salt was a most prized commodity of ancient peoples, valued as highly as gold. In addition to its food preserving and enhancing qualities, they utilized salt’s healing attributes and recognized that salt, like water, is essential to life. Pliny (23-79 A.D.) identified salt as ‘the most important remedy for humankind’.

Harvesting salt

Historically, marine-based human populations have harvested salt from the oceans. Inland peoples have mined salt accumulated where ancient oceans had once existed. Again, 71% of Earth’s surface is ocean. This is a salt water planet! Life involves water and salt.

Hydration involves salt

Hydration involves transferring hydrogen into the cells. Hydrogen transfer is the basis of essential life energy. Water is the matrix enabling this transfer.

As mentioned in Dr. F. Batmanghelidj’s revelatory books (You’re Not Sick; You’re Thirsty & Your Body’s Many Cries for Water), water is more than a solvent and mechanical carrier of substances. Hydration itself regulates the functions of the living bodies.

Hydration requires salt which Dr. Batmanghelidj describes as “vital for the generation of hydroelectric energy in all of the cells of the body. It is used for local power generation at the sites of energy needed by the cells…and is vital to the communication and information processing (of the nerve cells and brain cells) from the moment of conception to death”.**

Conductivity of salt

Fresh water, on its own, is not conductive. By adding a little salt (seawater), electrical transfer – the charge that stimulates all life’s impulses – is enabled. This means that when salty water moves into the cells of the body, electrical potential is activated and released as energy.

Water and salt ‘in-formed’ with crystalline structures

Naturally vital water is ‘structured’, as is natural salt. Matter is organized via unseen frequencies that manifest in ordered geometries. The crystalline forms of salt and water are visible results of this process.

These crystalline structures are highly organized in naturally occurring water and salt.  They are  manifestations of an intelligent order, embodiments of vital frequencies that resonate and in-form healthy tissues – in-formation carriers , recognizable signals to living bodies, cells and tissues.

In contrast are the de-formed, distorted and chaotic structures of man-ipulated water and salt. These fail to support life.

Himalayan crystal salt surpasses other salt

Millions of years of tectonic pressure have in-formed the crystalline structure of Himalayan salt.  Eighty-four minerals and trace elements constitute this amazing crystalline substance in a pure and easy-to-assimilate form. Solé is a wonderful way to imbibe natural salt and to benefit from its rich mineral content.

Salt’s minerals important for reversing disease

Linus Pauling (twice winner of the Nobel Prize) said that “every sickness, every disease, and every ailment (can be traced) to a mineral deficiency”.
