Dear Subscriber,

Today I want to tell you about how the cells in your body get water. This process is called "cell hydration."

Every function in the body depends on an efficient flow and distribution of water, including your cells' internal production of energy and the elimination of toxins.

In order to maintain life, the water in the fluid surrounding the cells remains at an almost constant level, so the blood and lymph can continue to flow without becoming excessively thick. When these fluids do not have enough water, various body conditions develop as a response, including high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, asthma and other allergies, diabetes, stress and depression. So we can see that dehydration is one of the basic causes of bad health, and hydration is essential to good health.

When there is not enough water in the body, the water level inside the cells drops. This what is known as dehydration--not enough water inside the cells. When water levels in the cells get really low, they start screaming for water, and we feel this as pain.

Getting enough water into your body is one requirement, but to utilize that water, our cells also need salt.

Have you ever wondered how water gets inside a cell? It moves through the process of osmosis, and osmosis is managed by the salt concentration present in the cells. Water is always moving from a cell with lower salt concentration to a cell with higher salt concentration--essentially, water follows salt. For a cell to "attract" or "pull" water inside, it needs salt.

The broad spectrum of minerals found in "The Original" Himalayan Crystal Salt are ideal nutrients to aid the cells in attracting water. This in turns helps to absorb all other nutrients given to the body with food or supplements. Natural salt is ESSENTIAL for food and nutrient absorption!

We're going to discuss more about water in future issues of this newsletter...

Here's a recipe from my friend Debra Lynn Dadd for the tastiest butter you've ever eaten, made, of course, with "The Original" Himalayan Crystal Salt. Debra just launched her new Green Living Q&A blog a couple of weeks ago. There you can ask questions about any type of natural or eco-friendly product, and share your own knowledge and experience with others.

"This butter is so easy to make," says Debra. "It only takes about five minutes in a food processor. It really is the best butter I've ever tasted. It's best to make this with organically grown or grass-fed cream, which you can purchase at most natural food stores."

"THE ORIGINAL" HIMALAYAN CRYSTAL SALT HOME-CHURNED BUTTER

1 pint of cream makes about a half pound of butter

  1. Fit a food processor with the normal chopping blade.
  2. Fill food processor about 1/4 - 1/2 full. How much butter you can make at once depends on the size of your food processor. If you use too much cream, it will overflow.
  3. Turn the food processor and let it blend for about 1-2 minutes. The cream will froth, then turn into whipped cream, which will get progressively stiffer. Suddenly, the fat will all gather together around the blade and separate from the milk.
  4. Drain the buttermilk.
  5. (You may omit this step, but it will allow the butter to stay fresher longer in storage.) Add 1/2 cup of ice-cold water, and continue to blend. Discard wash water and repeat until the wash water is clear.
  6. Work butter to remove suspended milk or water. Place damp butter into a cool bowl and knead with a potato masher or two forks. Mash the butter to remove the liquid, pouring off the liquid occasionally. You don't have to get all the liquid out, but it's best to remove as much as you can.
  7. Put butter in a butter crock, ramekins, or roll in parchement paper.
