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

Crystal Salt can actually be viewed as food. When we speak

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
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 and salt.
– 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
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.
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 directly.
Thoughts and No Actions Without Salt
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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).
Healing Power of Brine also called Sole (So-lay)
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.
1% sole solution is 1 part sole & 100 parts water
5% sole solution is 5 parts sole & 100 parts water
8% sole solution is 8 parts sole & 100 parts water, etc.
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 24 hours.
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 out.
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 and metabolism.
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
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.

in the salt mines to take advantage of the health-giving qualities
of the high saturation of Negative Ions. The geographical

ionic crystal lamps are not medical devices, they produce
negative ions which work to significantly improve physical
and mental health and negative ions are well proven to provide
relief from sinus problems, migraine headaches, allergies
and hay fever, reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance
immune system function, increase alertness, work productivity
and concentration, as well as lung capacity and reduce our
susceptibility to colds and flu. We absorb about 68% of our
energy each day from the air we breathe. That’s more
energy than we get from the food we eat or the water we drink.

ions substantially reduce airborne pollutants and are highly
effective in eliminating airborne bacteria. Dr. Albert P.

that an astonishingly small quantity of negative ions kills
many bacteria and quickly removes them from the air.

are nothing more than atoms or molecules that have gained
or lost an electron. Those that have lost an electron through
the process of air pollution and other environmental causes
are called positive ions, while those that have gained an
electron are negatively charged (negative) ions. In unspoiled
natural settings, a balance of ions contributes to one’s
sensations and perceptions in “fresh country air.”
ions, the so-called “good ions” or “happy
ions” because of their effects on mood, energy, libido
and sense of well being, predominate near waterfalls, on mountaintops
and at the seashore as well as after storms. Negative ions
are what we’re after. They can improve sleep, recuperation
and all affected areas.
speaking: “ Ions are charged particles in the air that
are formed in nature when enough energy acts upon a molecule
such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, water, or nitrogen to eject
an electron from the molecule leaving a positively charged
Ion. The displaced electron attaches itself to a nearby molecule,
which then becomes a negatively charged Ion. It is the negative
ion of oxygen that affects us the most.”
quality of the air we breathe depends on the kind of electrical
charge and concentration of the ions. The environment we live
in today has far more sources of positive ions than in the
past, creating an electrical imbalance in the air. These surplus
Positive Ions are produced by various human activities and
electrical appliances. The 21st century places immense stresses
on your body. More than ever before, you have a real need
for a natural and effortless way to enhance your well being.
Just as we choose to drink bottled water because of it’s
purity, the quality of the air we breathe is essential to
our health and well being.
Health Benefits of Negative Ions Include:

“airtight” (Hermetically Sealed) construction
of today’s homes and offices prevents the electrical
nutrients of the outside air from treating the air inside
our homes and workplaces. Our modern convenience electrical
appliances such as high-voltage networks, heating and cooling
systems, cell phones, TVs, radios, transmitters, radar systems,
computers, exhausts, fluorescent lighting, cigarette fumes,
etc., produce large quantities of positive ions creating an
electrical imbalance in the air and causing the deterioration
of our physical and emotional well being. When workplace Negative
Ion concentration is lowered, workers complain of headaches,
lethargy, dizziness, nausea, depression and irritability.
“positive ion poisoning:!
with all the benefits modern technology has provided, unfortunately
the 20th century industrial environment has drastically upset
ions levels and the “natural” electrical quality
of the air. While very few human activities add the beneficial
small negative ions to the atmosphere, many practices increase
the levels of positive ions. Positive ions are also produced
by combustion, by electronic apparatus and by synthetic materials
and fabrics – all of which are extensively used in urban
societies. And outdoor air quality, while important, is not
the major issue. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates
that average people spend 80-90% of their lives indoors, where
the air is usually worse. Most indoor time is typically spent
in relatively tightly sealed “energy efficient”
buildings, where many pollutants – both gases and particulates
– become concentrated and reach their highest levels.
It’s also indoors – including inside cars, trucks,
airplanes, etc. – where, as Albert Krueger, MD (the
late UC Berkeley researcher and founder of the Air Ion Research
Laboratory) argued, most individuals are exposed to either
ion depletion or a condition called “positive ion poisoning.”
The problem is further compounded by central heating and cooling
systems and by effects of people crowded together and breathing
in confined space.
