The Father of Anatomy, Herophilus, once said: “When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.” It is also in the same manner that I will add, real beauty comes from great health. No, I am not pertaining to the goodness of your heart (although that would count), but how well in the pink your physiological well being is. How can you bloom in full glory if your cells are all worn out?
Let me discuss this great find. I came across articles promoting the Himalayan Salt of Life. It has been a topic all over health communities and that made me wonder. You know well, fashionistas, that we are strong advocates of beauty and physical wellness that this product shall never go unnoticed!
People have branded it the primordial soup of life. This “white gold” is handpicked and naturally processed by the Earth into hydrolyzed crystals that are claimed to be “no longer water, no longer salt.” They say that it’s the materialization of sunlight that promises to nourish the body with energy that heals and sustains your health.
Now at this point, your skepticism might kick in and ask how does this differ from normal table salt?

Why Salt !
The standard table salt is potentially harmful simply because it is only one form of sodium, sodium chloride. This salt increases water pressure in the body cavity, which puts pressure on organs and vessels throughout the body. Sea salt generally contains seven or more salts, but the propensity for pollutants is off the scale. To collect sea salt, you boil off the water and the salt condenses. Unfortunately, so do all the petro chemical pollutants in the water as well…
Then I discovered Himalayan Pink Salt! This salt is mined from under the Himalayan Mountains, and hasn’t been exposed to all our industrial pollutants, as it is 350,000,000 years old. Not only that, but it contains all 84 salts needed for a healthy body, in the same ratio as our bodies require! That’s no coincidence.
I don’t usually recommend a particular brand of any product, but in this case I suggest buying SALT of LIFE brand, as they go to great lengths to make sure no explosives are used in the mining process, as that would contaminate the end product.
The reason I myself first tuned in to the importance of proper sodium intake, was that I found myself suffering with stomach issues which are commonly diagnosed as acid-reflux. Conventional theories suggest that the problem is from too much acid production in the stomach. But research shows that hydrochloric acid production peaks at about 30 years of age, then declines every year after.
What I learned in my research was that acid-reflux is caused by too little acid in the stomach, which allows a bacterium -H. Pylori- to migrate to the stomach as the acid levels drop. The bacteria do not cause the problem, they are a result of the problem. The real problem is a lack of stomach acids.
Here is how it works: You have hydrochloric acid in the stomach, or HCL. Then you have salt, or NaCL. When you have salt in the body, the body processes it by removing the Na molecules from the NaCL, and attaching a hydrogen molecule H to the remaining CL, forming HCL. So acid-reflux happens when we are sodium deficient, not from excess acids.
Since introducing Himalayan Pink Salt to my diet, my digestion has improved, and I am rarely dehydrated. I simply salt my food to taste and I am good to go. In liquid form, it makes a wonderful rehydrator during strenuous workouts, as it replenishes all those valuable electrolytes lost from sweating.
