Last week a friend of mine told me something I thought you would find very interesting.
In ancient times, before salt was refined, natural salt--with its full spectrum of minerals--was widely recognized as being essential to health and life. But did you know that the connection between salt and health is even embedded in our language?
The word "salt" comes from the Greek word hal. The Egyptians and the Romans also used the word hal, which is can be found still today in the names of such towns as Hallein and Hallstatt where there are or have been saltworks.
The word "health" also comes from the root hal. Clearly there is a relationship between salt and health!
Take a look at any modern dictionary, however, and "salt" is defined as "a crystalline compound consisting of sodium chloride, abundant in nature, used especially to season or preserve food or in industry." It's the only definition for the actual physical substance.
Modern dictionaries acknowledge only the refined industrial product, not the natural salt as it exists in the earth. Refined sodium chloride has become so predominant in our world today, that natural living salt has largely been forgotten. The dictionary definition is the definition of sodium chloride, not salt as it was defined in pre-industrial times.
The actual definition of salt would be "a crystalline compound, abundant in nature, consisting of sodium, chloride, and all the other minerals and trace elements, that nourishes and sustains plants, animals, and humans."
So the refined white stuff in the salt shakers really isn't salt at all, for it contains none of the life-supporting nutrients found in real, natural salt! I'm going to make a point now to call natural salt "salt" and refined salt "sodium chloride" for those are the correct names for those substances.
Himalayan Living Salt is a salt of the earth, a complex crystal containing eighty-four elements that are vital to life. These include sodium, magnesium, silicum, chloride, calcium, titanium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, selenium, zirconium, silver, iodine, platinum, gold, and many more. These nutrients are the same elements originally found existing in the "primal ocean" where all life originated, and the same elements our bodies need for good health.
Remember, just a pinch of Himalayan Crystal Salt each day is all your body needs.
As promised, here is another recipe using Himalayan Crystal Salt. Instead of salty processed snacks made with refined sodium chloride, try these tasty "raw roasted" nuts, seasoned with Himalayan Crystal Salt.
LIVING SALTED NUTS
