Salt is essential for life; you can't live without it. Since ancient times, yogis in India have carried Himalayan salt crystals with their few belongings. Today, Indian (Ayurvedic) naturopaths recommend its use. Yet, many people do not know that there are huge differences between the standard, refined table and cooking salt that nearly everyone uses and natural health-promoting Himalayan crystal salt. Those differences can have a major impact on your health.
Common table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents and iodine, then dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. The excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt. What remains after typical salt is "chemically cleaned" is sodium chloride, which is an unnatural chemical form of salt that your body recognizes as something completely foreign. This form of salt is in almost every preserved food product that you eat; therefore, when you add more salt to your already salted food, your body receives more salt than it can possibly dispose of.
Because typical table salt crystals are totally isolated from each other, in metabolizing these crystals, your body sacrifices tremendous amounts of energy with very little results. Plus, inorganic sodium chloride interferes with the body's ideal fluid balance and can overburden the elimination system. That happens because in the body's effort to isolate the excess salt, water molecules must surround the sodium chloride to break them up into sodium and chloride ions in order to neutralize them. To accomplish this, water is taken from your cells in order to neutralize the unnatural sodium chloride.
Sea salt is better than common table salt; however, it comes from a polluted ocean that has been used to dump garbage and harmful chemicals and toxins. This causes the natural elements of the salt to be disconnected from its crystalline form, and the vital minerals cannot be absorbed by the body without expending tremendous energy to utilize them. The net gain is small, and with an even greater loss of energy.
In the case of Himalayan crystal salt, three hundred million years ago, a vast primordial ocean covered the area that would become the Himalayan mountain range. The salt of that unpolluted ocean was preserved as large crystal formations that now yield the purest salt on earth.
Himalayan crystal salt is bio-energetically alive and contains the same 84 key trace minerals as our bodies, making it easily metabolized. The balanced crystalline structure reveals fine branching with no shadows or rough edges. The crystal is not isolated from the inherent mineral elements, but is connected to them in a harmonious state. This tells us that the energy content, in the form of minerals, is balanced and can be easily metabolized by the body. When taken as food, it will have a vital energetic effect on the body. The result is a net gain for the body with zero energy loss.
Himalayan crystal salt, available in fine and coarse formulas, is made from crystal rock salt mined at the foot of the Himalayas. The salt is pinkish in color due to the minerals it contains.
