Himalayan Crystal Salt vs. Table Salt

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?

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, that is, 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 90,000 kilometres of waterways and blood vessels throughout our organism with the forces of gravity and regulates and balances the functions of our body. Important facts about salt’s impact on your health, can be found here.

How Table Salt Burdens The Body
While our body only requires the minute amount of 0.2 gram 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 0.2 gram per day, salt craving kicks in. The average, per capita, daily consumption of table salt, for example in the U.S. is between 11.3 grams and 19.8 grams. However, our body is only able to excrete 4.8 grams to 7 grams a day through our kidneys, depending on our age, constitution and sex. The body recognizes 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.

The Horrifying Consequences of Consuming Table Salt
The result of consuming common table salt is the formation of overly acidic oedema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. That’s why doctors tell us to avoid salt in our diet. For every 1 gram of sodium chloride that cannot be eliminated, the body uses 23 times the amount of its own cell water to neutralize the salt. If the sodium chloride in the body is still too high, re-crystallization 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. So the body can’t 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-crystallization 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.

Salt is an essence of life. Better it be the good salt!


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 is perpetually seeking an equalizing 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!

Pure, natural crystal salt has been subjected to enormous pressure over millions of years. 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 cell, 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 mountain transformed into crystal salt. The elements trapped within the crystal salt are particles small enough to be able to penetrate the human cells and be metabolised.

What do these Microscopic Views Tell Us? 
The result of this research proves how well developed and vital the crystal of Himalayan salt is. It actually has life generating power for our body and our nervous system. The photo (top left) is the Himalayan salt at 50x magnification. The regular table salt shows no vibrant crystalline structure but exclusively dead crystals. As a food it’s absolutely useless if not a destructive poison. This is why doctors tell us to use less salt in our diets. The photo (centre) is normal table salt at 50x magnification. Sea salt falls between the two. It displays crystalline structure, however, the crystals are isolated from their important vital elements. Therefore, an ional-colloidal assimilation of the elements cannot be guaranteed. The photo (right), is at 50x magnification.

The balanced crystalline structure of Himalayan Crystal Salt reveals fine branching, no shadows or rough edges. The crystal is not isolated from the inherent mineral elements (84) but is connected in a harmonious state. This tells us that the energy content in the form of minerals, is balanced and can be easily metabolised by the body. This crystal is full of life. When taken as food, it will have a vital energetic effect on the body.

The unnatural crystals are totally isolated from each other and dead. In order for the body to try to metabolise these crystals it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy with very little results, resulting in a damaging loss and zero gain. The salt deposits in our bodies look similar to this photo, isolated and dead. Irregular and isolated crystalline structures disconnected from the natural elements surrounding them so the body cannot absorb the vital minerals however many it may contain, unless the body expends tremendous energy to vitalize them. The net gain is small with an even greater loss of energy. What applies to humans, applies to animals. Feeding good salt to your pet or farm animal will deliver the same benefits you experience. Naturally, it’s always wise to consult an accredited medical practitioner, before adopting dietary changes.
