This post will provide you with basic background information to help consume the optimal salts to alkalize and energize your body.
That’s right sea salt is alkaline and helps energize our cells and tissues. Our blood has a similar composition to sea salt including all the minerals and trace elements. When we consume raw sea salt we replace the various electrolytes lost on a regular basis. The key is to use a naturally dried raw sea salt that is not heated or polluted. This helps keep our cells and fluids in a healthy state. Remember you must drink adequate amounts of water every day to avoid dehydration.
Table salt (NaCl) on the other hand is a highly heated and refined salt that removes most of the minerals and trace elements that our bodies need. Table salt is primarily two elements and the sodium (Na) is responsible for causing health issues like high blood pressure as the body excretes water to get rid of the excess sodium.
Sea Salt Simple Steps
Add a pinch of sun dried sea salt to beverages like green drinks, herbal teas, smoothies, teas and water for the minerals and trace elements.
- Take an Epsom salt or sea salt bath to feel refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed. Add a few drops of relaxing and soothing essential oil like lavender, sandalwood or rosemary. Bicarbonate of soda or Calcium bentonite clay can also be added to the water for a little extra cleanse and detox.
