Alchemists called it "the fifth element"
For thousands of years salt has been known as a panacea.
Alchemists called it “the fifth element”- besides water, earth, air and fire – because its qualities were comparable only to ether, the actual fifth element.
Why are we so drawn to the ocean? Because our subconscious mind instinctively wants to return to the specific vibrational state of the ocean from which we once emerged. This is where we can return to recharge our batteries and regenerate.
It was only two hundred and fifty years ago, with the advent of industrialization, that we initiated our disconnection from nature and her ways. Fortunately, we are witnessing a trend to return back to natural, holistic methods for living and caring for our body, including a shift back to utilizing natural salts in this process. People everywhere are reconsidering the healing effects of natural crystal salt. We can find it in body care lotions and for use as bath salts, and it is even used in inhalation or cleansing treatments for illnesses of the respiratory system and for a variety of other indications.
The neutralising effect of salt
The healing properties of salt are also known in allopathic medicine
The largest and oldest salt works in Europe occupies the royal salt mine of Wieliczka, Poland, just 7.5 miles outside of Krakow. Here, a hospital was carved out of the expansive salt mountain, seven hundred forty feet below the surface, specifically for asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies.
Several thousand patients have been successfully treated in this hospital. The healing rate is astonishingly over 90%. Recognition of the healing effects of salt chambers has influenced the construction of a similar underground spa located in the salt mine of Berchtesgaden in Germany.
The therapeutic benefits of long-term residency inside the healing salt chambers are allopathically acknowledged.
The healing effects were originally thought to be related to the purity of the air within the mine’s chambers.
But if it was only a question of the purity of the air, why was the air in the cave so healthy, and the air above-surface so unhealthy?
And, when not at home, we hold cell phones to our ears while driving in our cars and walking through our daily lives.
Crystal salt promotes the excretion of animal proteins
A further study showed some interesting allopathic results. All subjects in this study drank one-teaspoon of sole daily.
After four weeks, the protein emission in the urine significantly increased for eighty percent of the one-hundred-twenty-three subjects.
This shows that the energy pattern of the sole with its innate, natural antagonism towards the proteins, helps and supports the excretion of animal proteins that are difficult to break down.
