Many trace minerals are only needed by the body in minute amounts and Himalayan salt gives a wide spectrum of minerals… 84 in fact. These trace minerals are necessary for cellular health. Cellular health is largely a bioelectrical phenomenon . Drinking plenty of good quality water combined with Himalayan salt provides a great alkalizing foundation for health at cellular level.

A good way to use Himalayan salt is to make a brine solution which you then add to water and drink. To make a brine solution take a glass jar (not plastic) and fill 2/3rds with Himalayan salt crystals. Then fill the jar with filtered water. Leave the jar for 24 hours by which time the water in the jar will have become fully saturated with salt. Then each morning add a teaspoon of this brine solution to a glass of water and drink. This is a great way to start the day. It is very alkalizing and a concentrated form of electrical energy for the body. Once you have used half of the jar of brine solution, dispose of the remainder and restart the process for maximum effectiveness.
