Extracts from the book
When we speak of Himalayan crystal Salt, we are referring
to only one specific crystal salt, the “Original”
coming from one specific location in the East Karakoram
range of the Himalayan Mountain in Pakistan and has been
the subject of comprehensive medical research as written
about in the book Water&Salt – The Essence of
Life, by Dr Barbara Hendel, MD and Peter Ferreira. Original
Himalayan Crystal Salt is more than sodium and chloride.
Original Himalayan Crystal Salt can actually be viewed as
food. When we speak of salt, and as we scrutinize its properties,
we mean salt in its original form: holistic, wholesome,
unaltered, natural salt, as it has crystallized in the Earth
over millions of years.
Himalayan crystal salt contains all the elements of which
the human body is comprised. From the periodic table of
elements we are familiar with 94 elements (stable as well
as unstable). Apart from inert gases, all of the elements
(840 can be found in crystal salt. Hence crystal salt contains
all natural minerals and trace elements. This may not be
entirely correct according to chemistry, however we will
continue to use the term crystal salt in this context. The
number of the respective elements contained tin the crystal
salt is biophysically irrelevant to this study.
Meaning of the Word Salt
The word salt comes from the Latin term sal, which again
comes from the word sol. Sol is synonymous with the “Sole,
the water and salt solutions and is the Latin word from
sun. Mythologically, and from its definition, sole means
“liquid sunlight,” the liquid materialization
of the sun’s energy, liquid light energy, bound into
a geometrical structure, capable of creating and sustaining
life. This literally explains where life on Earth came from;
from the sole of the primal oceans.
Celtic word for salt, “hall” has the same roots
as the German word heilig meaning “holy” which
also comes from the word heil meaning “whole”.
Further, hall also signifies sound (German schall). The
schall is a sound with a long hall, which means echo or
reverberation in German, involving vibration. If we knew
of these correlations today, we would be asking our neighbour
at the table to ‘Please pass me some vibration,”
rather than “Please pass me some salt.” We have
to ask. “Were the Celts conscious of the fact that
salt contained all the frequency patterns of the elements?”
And, that “hall” was the basic vibration for
“heil” (German “health”) /”wholesomeness”?
They definitely knew how to cure illnesses and rebalance
the energy deficit in the body through “hall”,
their salt. From an energetic, as well as from the biophysical
point of view, an energy deficit can be balanced with salt,
regardless of the missing frequency pattern, or the missing
information/energy/life-force. Pure crystal salt is still
geologically defined as “halite”, in which we
can recognize the Celtic words “hall” for salt
and “lit” for light. Loosely translated, crystal
salt or halite means, light vibration.
Himalayan crystal salt consists not only of two, but also
of all natural elements of which our bodies have been built
and originally found existing in the “primal ocean”
from where all life originated. Interesting enough, our
blood is a sole, containing the same salty solution as that
of the primal sea; that is, a fluid consisting of water
– Mediator between Energy and Matter
Salt is that which remains after matter has dissolved and
transformed into subtle matter. The founder of the Schussler
Salt Therapy, Dr Wilhelm Schussler, already proved, over
100 years ago, that the ashes remaining after a corpse is
cremated are nothing but the salts of which the human body
is made. The by-product of the modern waste burning plants
is salt. Needless to say, no one would want to eat this
salt, but the fact remains, it is salt. Our prehistoric
ancestors were already aware of the crucial necessity of
salt. Wherever they found salt they guarded it like a treasure.
Later in history, slat was called “white gold”
and was the subject of political power plays, which oftentimes
resulted in war. Roman soldiers wee actually paid with salt,
which is reflected in the work “salary”. Salt
was more important for survival than gold. Throughout Europe,
the salt routes over which the white gold was transported
emerged. The names of many German cities bear testimony
to this time, with such names as: Salzgitter, Salzburg or
Bad Salzulfen for instance. Also, names including the word
“hall”, the Celtic word for salt, emerged, with
city names like Bad Reichenhall, Friedrichshall and Hallein,
indicating salt deposits at these locations.
Structure of Salt
Similar to water, salt has its individual crystalline structure.
In contrast to the structure of water, which is tetrahedral
in shape, the grid structure of salt is cubic in form. This
cube is constructed from light quanta, also called photons,
which are pure light energy. The light/heat energy of the
sun evaporated the primal oceans more than 250 million years
ago and the energy expended for this dehydration is stored
in the platonic body of the salt’s crystalline grid
as potential energy. By adding water, the force of the grid
can be overcome, so that the energy it holds is liberated.
In this process, the elements within the crystal salt are
ionised, allowing them to penetrate the body’s cells.
This creates an ocean of energy, a powerful potential, waiting
only to create and sustain life.
Power of Salt to Transform
From a scientific point of view, salt has a very unique
property. In contrast to all other crystalline structures,
the atomic structure of salt is not molecular, but electrical.
This fact is what makes salt so transformable. When we submerge
a quartz crystal into water and remove it after 10 minutes,
it is still the same quartz crystal. It did not change molecularly,
though it has a crystalline structure. Although the crystal
can give its energy, its frequency pattern into the surrounding
water, which is effortlessly absorbed, the quartz crystal
remains the same. The crystal is too rooted in matter to
be dissolved or disassociated from its polarity.
When we submerge a crystal of salt into water, it dissolves,
and the (Brine) Sole is created. Sole is neither water nor
salt. It is a higher energetic dimension than either the
water or the salt alone. When the Sole evaporates, the salt
is left behind. This transformability of salt ensures that
it does not have o be metabolised in our body. Starch is
transformed into sugar, protein into amino acids and fat
into glycerine and acid. But salt remains salt. It is directly
available to the cells in its ionised form as sole (so-lay).
All other foods must be separated into their components
in order for the body to make use of them. But salt always
remains in its original form. It even accesses our brain
Thoughts and No Actions Without Salt
Even the simplest processes in our body need salt or its
inherent elements in ionised form. For example, it is the
task of our nervous system to transmit the stimulation that
has been recorded via sensory input to out brain, which
in return passes this information back to our muscles in
order for us to react to the respective stimuli. An electric
potential occurs on the membrane wall of the cells when
the positively charged potassium ions leave the cells and
the positively charged sodium ions cannot enter due to their
size. The outside becomes positively charged and the inside
negatively charged. When a nerve cell is stimulated, its
membrane suddenly becomes polar opposite and consequently
is permeable for the sodium ions. In one-thousandth of a
second (1/1000th), the electrical potential is transformed
and releases, with every nerve impulse, 90 mill volts of
energy. The received stimuli are now being converted into
thoughts and actions. Without the elements potassium and
sodium in the salt, this process is not possible. Not even
a single thought is possible, let alone an action, without
their presence. Just the simple act of drinking a glass
of water requires millions of instructions that come as
impulses. In the beginning there is the thought. This thought
is nothing but an electromagnetic frequency. The salt is
responsible for enabling this frequency. The salt is responsible
for enabling this frequency to transmit commands to the
muscles and organs.
Conductivity of Salt
Most of us are familiar with experimenting with the conductivity
of salt from science class. We attach two ends of an electric
current to a light bulb and submerge it into a glass with
distilled water. Because this water is not conductive, the
bulb does not light up. But when we add a little bit of
salt into the water, the bulb slowly starts to glow. It
is the same with our body. When we lack the natural elements
of the salt, we are suffering from a chronic loss, a chronic
energy deficit, or deficit of information. Salt cannot be
labelled as a medication, because that would imply that
apples too were a medication. Salt is a core essential nutrient
with exceptional abilities and qualities fundamental for
keeping us alive. And we can find that which we are lacking,
the respective frequency pattern, as well as the necessary
bio-chemicals, in natural crystal salt.
Gold to White Poison
As common as saltshakers are to our kitchens, so are the
numbers of diseases associated with salt’s daily use.
Life is not possible without salt. But our consumption of
salt is killing us. Why is that? Because our regular table
salt no longer has anything in common with the original
crystal salt of which we’re talking about here. Salt
nowadays is mainly sodium chloride and not salt. Natural
crystal salt consists not only of two, but also of all natural
elements. These are identical to the elements of which our
bodies have been built and originally found existing in
the “primal ocean” from where all life originated.
Interesting enough, our blood is a sole, containing the
same salty solution as that of the primal sea; a fluid consisting
of water and salt. It also has the same ratio of concentration
as existed in the days when life left the primal sea. This
sole flows through more than 56,000 miles of waterways and
blood vessels throughout our organism with the forces of
gravity and levity and regulates and balances the functions
of our body.
Salt Became Sodium Chloride
With the advent of industrial development, natural salt
was “chemically cleaned” and reduced to the
combination of sodium and chloride. Essential minerals and
trace elements were removed as impurities. However, sodium
chloride is an unnatural, isolated, unwholesome substance
having nothing in common with salt. Similar to white, refined
sugar, salt, once regarded as white gold, was converted
into white poison. However, there is a higher reason for
salt having been endowed with all the natural elements found
in our bodies. Sodium chloride is an aggressive substance,
which bio-chemically, is perpetually seeking an equalising
counterpart so that the body’s pH can always remain
neutral. Sodium chloride needs its natural counterpart in
order for it to produce its effect. The natural counterparts,
such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals
and trace elements, demonstrate, from a biophysical standpoint,
specific frequency patterns. These patterns ensure the geometric
structures in our body. When these structures are missing,
we are without energy and are lifeless. Salt should not
be used just to add flavour to our food, but for its vibration
pattern, which is similar to our body!
Table Salt Burdens the Body
While our body only requires the minute amount of 0.007
ounces of salt per day, most of us suffer from a lack of
salt, even though we’re over-saturated with sodium
chloride. When our consumption of salt is less than 0.007
ounces per day, salt craving kicks in. The average, per
capita, daily consumption of table salt in the U.S. is between
0.4 ounces and 0.7. However, our body is only able to excrete
0.17 ounces to 0.25 ounces a day through our kidneys, depending
on our age, constitution and sex. The body recognises table
salt as an aggressive cellular poison, an unnatural substance,
and wants to eliminate it as quickly as possible in order
to protect itself. This causes a constant overburden on
our organs of excretion. In almost every preserved product,
salt is used as part of the preservation process. So, by
adding salt to the already salted food, the body receives
more salt than it can get rid of.
body now tries to isolate the over-dose of salt. In this
process, water molecules surround the sodium chloride in
order to ionise it into sodium and chloride to neutralise
it. For this process, the water is taken from our cells
as the body sacrifices its most perfectly structured cell
water in order to neutralise sodium chloride. With this,
the dehydrated body cells die.
Consequences of Consuming Table Salt
The result of consuming common table salt is the formation
of overly acidic edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue,
which is also the cause of cellulite. That’s why doctors
tell us to avoid salt. For every .035 ounces of sodium chloride
that cannot be eliminated, the body used 23 times (23x)
the amount of its own cell water to neutralise the salt.
If the sodium chloride is still too high, re-crystallisation
of the table salt occurs as the body uses available non-degradable
animal proteins (as those found in milk), which also have
no value and cannot be broken down and eliminated. The body
uses these proteins to produce uric acid in order to get
rid of the excess salt. As the body cannot dispose of uric
acid, it binds itself with the sodium chloride to form new
crystals that are deposited directly in the bones and joints.
This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatism such
as arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones.
This re-crystallisation is the body’s band-aid solution
for the cells and organs in order to protect the body from
irreparable damage of irresponsible food intake. But in
the long run, it poisons the system because those substances
cannot be disposed of.
Difference between Rock Salt and Crystal Salt
The elements in rock salt are not integrated into the salt’s
crystal grid, but cling to the outside surface and crevices
of the crystalline structure. This is the fundamental difference
between rock salt and crystal salt. A salt crystal manifests
a superior structure. Due to this sublime form, the elements
are bio-chemically available for our cells as are the individual
frequencies or vibration patterns. Rock salt is a cheap
alternative to table salt, and is at least a natural and
wholesome product. Bio-chemically and biophysically however,
it is of little importance to our organism. We can only
receive the resonant effects of the geometrical structure
through the superior order or structure of a crystal and
our cells can only absorb those elements that occur in an
ional form. Only under considerable pressure can the elements
be transformed into a specific size, making them ional,
which enables them to pass through our cell wall. This is
important because our cells can only absorb what is available
organically or ionally. Therefore, we cannot absorb the
minerals from mineral water as they’re not refined
enough to penetrate our cell walls. And what doesn’t
get into our cells cannot be metabolised. Therefore, the
best calcium is useless if it cannot be available to the
body’s cells. What we need is the organic, or ional
state of an element, in perfect natural symbiosis with all
its associated elements, in order for our organism to make
any use of it.
Pure, natural crystal salt has been subjected to enormous
pressure over millions of years. The pressure is responsible
for creating the salt crystals. The higher the amount of
pressure the more superior or excellent the state of order
within the crystalline structure. Salt, for us, is foremost
an information carrier and not a spice. For information
to be absorbed into our cells, a crystalline structure is
necessary. Chemically, a stone and a quartz crystal are
both silicates. However, the vast difference in the amounts
of pressure they were subjected to, distinguishes them.
The quartz crystal embodies a perfect geometric form, a
perfect state of order within its structure. The stone does
not. Its elements are coarse, because it was not subjected
to enough pressure to create a crystalline structure. Crystal
salt layers wind through the mountain of salt, shimmering
in transparent white, pinkish or reddish veins. Only with
sufficient pressure was the salt of the salt mountain transformed
into crystal salt. The elements trapped within the crystal
salt are in particles small enough to be able to penetrate
the human cells and be metabolised.
Healing Effect of Salt
For thousands of years salt has been known as a panacea.
Alchemists called it “the fifth element” –
besides water, earth, air and fire – because its qualities
were comparable only to ether, the actual fifth element.
Why are we so drawn to the ocean? Because our subconscious
mind instinctively wants to return to the specific vibrational
state of the ocean from which we once emerged. This is where
we can return to recharge our batteries and regenerate.
It was only two hundred and fifty years ago, with the advent
of industrialisation, that we initiated our disconnection
from nature and her ways. Fortunately, we are witnessing
a trend to return back to natural, holistic methods for
living and caring for our body, including a shift back to
utilising natural salts in this process. People everywhere
are reconsidering the healing effects of natural crystal
salt. We can find it in skin care lotions and for use as
bath salts, and it is even used in inhalation or cleansing
treatments for illness or the respiratory system and for
a variety of other indications.
Neutralising Effect of Salt
The healing properties of salt are also known in allopathic
medicine. The largest and oldest salt works in Europe occupies
the royal salt mine of Wieliczka, Poland, just 4.5 miles
outside of Krakow. Here, a hospital was carved out of the
expansive salt mountain, seven hundred forty feet below
the surface, specifically for asthmatics and patients with
lung disease and allergies. Several thousand patients have
been successfully treated in this hospital. The healing
rate is astonishingly over 90%. Recognition of the healing
effects of salt chambers has influenced the construction
of a similar underground spa located in the salt mine of
Berchtesgaden in Germany. The therapeutic benefits of long-term
residency inside the healing salt chambers are allopathically
acknowledged. The healing effects were originally thought
to be related to the purity of the air within the mine’s
chambers. But if it was only a question of the purity of
the air, why was the air in the cave so healthy, and the
air above-surface so unhealthy? One cause has been determined.
Our houses are charged with electromagnetic devices, such
as TV’s, stereos, computers, microwave ovens and the
basic electric currents running through our walls. And,
when not at home, we hold cell phones to our ears while
driving in our cars and walking through our daily lives.
This electro-smog causes an excess of positively charged
ions that disturb the balance between the positively and
negatively charged particles. Further, it creates excess
positively charged, chemically unbound particles in the
air. Only thirty seconds on a cell phone is enough to open
up our blood-brain-barrier, a natural barrier that protects
our brain from toxins, for eight hours. A Swedish study
showed that ninety percent of the women who used a copper-T
I.U.D. as their birth control method, while simultaneously
using cell phones, developed uterine cancer; the cause being
that the I.U.D. functioned as a transmitter and receiver
of unnatural, dissonant vibrations.
Salt Promotes the Excretion of Animal Proteins
A further study showed some interesting allopathic results.
All subjects in this study drank one-teaspoon of sole daily.
After four weeks, the protein emission in the urine significantly
increased for eighty percent of the one hundred and twenty
three subjects. This shows that the energy pattern of the
sole with its innate, natural antagonism towards the proteins,
helps and supports the excretion of animal proteins that
are difficult to break down. (This examination was done
by Dr. med. Elisabeth Scherwitz-Josenhans).
The Healing Power of Brine also called Sole (So-lay)
Sole Solution – When we speak of a Sole solution,
this is when you take the fully concentrated Sole (26%)
and add some amount of water to it in order to make a certain
percentage of Sole solution.
A 1% sole solution is 1 part sole & 100 parts water
A 5% sole solution is 5 parts sole & 100 parts water
An 8% sole solution is 8 parts sole & 100 parts water,
we speak of water for internal use in this book, we primarily
mean water that is:
– no pollutants and no memory of pollutants.
– Fully developed, having come to the surface by its
own force of levitation.
Water – Water that has not been robbed of its life
force / its pristine crystalline structure, from being pressurised
in water pipes.
Water – Water that comes from a naturally occurring
spring or artesian well, not from a reservoir, from rainwater
or from the tap etc.
in Minerals – The lower the content of minerals the
better the cleansing effect of the water for flushing pollutants
from our body.
of Drinking Sole
· The sole supplies the body with the natural energy
stored in the crystals which the body can hold for up to
· Can neutralise the alkaline/acidity balance in
the body and normalise blood pressure.
· Can dissolve and eliminate impurities and built
up toxins which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism
like arthritis and kidney an gall bladder stones.
· Can lower the craving for addictive desires.
· Can help with skin diseases by cleaning from inside
mixture of water and crystal salt, called “Sole”
(so-lay) is the most flexible physical representation of
pure solar and light energy. When water and this salt come
together they become a different product, Sole.
word sole is derived from the Latin word “sol”,
which means sun. Sole is nothing bur the fluid materialisation
of sunlight. Sole means fluid sunlight or fluid light energy.
water combines with salt the positive ions of the salt surround
the negative ions of the water molecules and vice versa.
The ions become hydrolysed. In this process the geometrical
structure of the salt and the water is changed and a totally
new structure is formed, a third dimension. Water is no
longer water and salt is no longer salt.
crystalline structure of the salt, which has formed from
great pressure over millions o years makes the salt organic
and absorbable for the body.
structure also contains nature’s resonant frequency
that is very profound with the vibration patterns lasting
for over 4 hours in our bodies. The body requires this energy
and vibration pattern when disease is present.
morning take one teaspoon of sole mixed in a glass of good
quality artesian or spring water. Drink this on an empty
stomach before taking breakfast. The amount of water is
up to you, but you only need one teaspoon of sole for your
daily intake. The regularity is important. From a bio-chemical
viewpoint, within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines
are being stimulated. This in turn encourages digestion
overall availability of electrolytes is built up and thus
the conductivity in the body is increased, which in turn
stimulates circulation and the nervous system.
the Body’s pH Factor and get Rid of Heavy Metals
The sole is an excellent product for balancing the pH environment
of your body. Sole will break down the build up of heavy
metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, amalgam and calcium.
For the body to get rid of these deposits it has to first
metabolise them. Even animal proteins, which are difficult
to break down and eliminate, will be eliminated through
the urine due to the strong structural formation of the
crystal salt. Always support this action with water intake
of 8 to 10 glasses a day.
several Himalayan Crystal Salt stones in a glass container
and add high quality spring water until full. After approximately
24 hours, look to see if the salt crystals have completely
dissolved. If so, add a few more crystals. When the water
can no longer dissolve any more salt, the salt crystals
will sit at the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At
this point the solution becomes saturated at 26%, which
is stable and ready for consumption. Take 1 teaspoon of
he 26% solution in a glass of water every morning before
breakfast. The glass container can be refilled again and
again with water and salt, to continue the process.
