I’m all about healthy habits. I post about many different daily habits such as an Apple Cider Vinegar Drink, Bee Pollen, Lemon Water and THIS smoothie but do I do all of these everyday? Unfortunately no. I could and should but there are only so many hours in a day right? Well, I’ll tell you one daily habit I’ve gotten into lately that is so quick and easy but so incredibly beneficial. I drink my Himalayan salt every morning. Himalayan Salt is full of minerals like magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron and potassium. These minerals are all so beneficial for a healthy body and when they are depleted, unpleasant symptoms can arise. Go HERE for a more in-depth look at the benefits of Himalayan Salt.
Symptoms of Mineral Deficiency:
- Low energy
- Constipation and bloating
- Numbness and tingling in the hand/fingers and feet/toes
- Loss of appetite
- Irregular heart beat
- White marks on fingernails
- Cuts and bruises heal slowly
- Stinky feet
- Yeast infections and fungus overgrowth
- Food cravings like dirt and paper
- Leg cramps
There are so many issues that come from being mineral deficient and the majority of us are severely depleted. The thing with minerals is that our bodies can not produce them, they can only obtain them from outside sources. Minerals come from soil. We should be getting minerals from the veggies grown in soil and from animal meat that feed off of the grass from soil. It all comes back to the circle of life, huh? Unfortunately, these days our soil is so corrupt with chemicals like pesticides. Other factors that make it hard for our bodies to obtain minerals are antacids, low stomach acid, pharmaceuticals, cortisone, birth control pills, coffee, alcohol, hormone imbalances and sugar. Luckily, another viable source is Pink Himalayan Salt!!
What is Sole?
Sole is water saturated with unrefined salt. It’s a mixture of 3/4 purified water and 1/4 Himalayan salt in a glass container. It is to be consumed daily. Sole contains a hearty helping of minerals, 84 to be exact.
It’s so easy to make. You simple get a jar or Tupperware with a plastic lid (salt reacts with metal) fill the glass container 1/4 full with Himalayan Salt and fill the rest with purified water. Allow to sit overnight so that the salt can permeate the water. You don’t have to grind your salt either-chunk form is perfectly fine!
First thing in the morning, take 1 tsp. of sole in a glass of purified/filtered water at room temperature.
Be sure you always have a layer of salt at the bottom of your container-this means the water is fully saturated. If there is no salt then your water might need more salt.
Benefits of Drinking Sole Daily:
- Provides the body with 84 minerals that the body can hold onto for 24 hours.
- Balances the bodies pH
- Normalizes blood pressure
- Balances blood sugar
- Helps the absorption of food particles in the intestines
- Increases circulation
- Thyroid support
- Adrenal support
- Improves sleep
- Improves bone health
- Clears congestion and relieves itchy throat
- Helps rid the body of heavy metals such as mercury, led and amalgam
As you can see, this simple habit is a home run. The benefits are vast! I’ve been drinking sole for over a week now and I can attest to improved sleep and improved digestion. This by far, is the easiest thing we can do for such a high return of benefits.
One last tip: I have digestion issues. Very possibly I don’t produce enough stomach acid to properly digest food. This is a very common issue. If there is not enough stomach acid to digest the salt then it’s pointless. I have been taking and enzyme supplement after I drink my sole each morning. Go HERE for that. It might not be totally necessary-it just depends on the person.
I’m so excited about this info. and I hope you found it exciting too! While I try hard to get a green smoothie, exercise, take supplements and drink 90 ounces of water daily, I often fall short. Taking care of your body can be a full time job! I get pumped when I can find something that isn’t going to take up time and money but is going to benefit my bod. This for sure is it!!
