The Amazing Benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt

268e7f78e33a8d7b19a36110778086b8The Himalayan mountain range, the tallest mountains in the world stretches across Asia passing through China, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India. Most people associate the Himalayans with Mount Everest, the highest peak on this planet, but here is something new to consider about them, Himalayan Pink Salt.
As the plates of the earth moved and over the ages, the sea evaporated and all of its life-sustaining minerals crystallized under the heat of the sun to form what we now know as Himalayan Pink Salt. Mentioned below are some of the unbelievable health benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt and how you can use it improve your health.

Strengthens the Body – The over 80 trace mineral deposits found in Himalayan Pink Salt are beneficial for the human body to maintain strong bones and connective tissues, as well as proper muscle development and blood circulation. Regular use of Himalayan Pink Salt to season your food may be just a jump start that your body needs to get back to good health.

Improves Digestive System – Minerals in HPS can increase the capability of digestive tract to absorb other nutrients. Himalayan Pink Salt will help better digest your food.  Better digestion means more regularity and less gastric problems.

Lowers Blood Pressure – Himalayan Pink Salt has the ability to lower your blood pressure because of its high sodium ratio. Researchers say, when natural HPS is used instead of processed sodium chloride table salt, your body easily processes the minerals. Your system won’t need as much water to clear out the surplus sodium, therefore you won’t preserve as much water, and your body won’t have to work as hard.

DetoxificationHimalayan Pink Salt also works as a great detoxifier. When dissolved in water, HPS becomes an ionic solution that helps to pull the toxins out of skin and adipose tissues.  The process offered by a good Himalayan Pink Salt soak will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.

Reduces Acid Reflux / Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) – The majority of people solaywith a pH imbalance lean toward acidity and can fix this problem easily by drinking sole (pronounced as ‘solay’) made with Himalayan Pink Salt and purified water. Sole made with HPS can also be used as an antacid. Just mix about one teaspoon in a glass of room temperature water and drink to neutralize excess stomach acid. To make solay, in a jar just dilute HPS in purified water until some salt sits on the bottom meaning the water is totally saturated, then consume 1 tsp daily on rising with warm water.

Regulates Hydration – HPS when consumed as a solay – a saline solution that has been fully saturated with natural, unrefined salt, provides the body with electrolytes which regulates hydration, among other things.

Sinus Irrigation – Himalayan Pink Salt kills bacteria and clears many toxins that may be stuck in your nasal cavities due to breathing polluted air. Alternately, Himalayan crystal salt inhaler can also be used to cleanse your respiratory system.413H5QSPstL._AA160_

Prevents Muscle Cramping – A warm bath infused with Himalayan pink salt is great for relaxing cramped muscles. The magnesium and some other minerals found in HPS absorb through the skin to help cure damaged muscle and other soft tissues. Minerals in HPS also work to strengthen bones, skin, and connective tissues that may contribute to body aching in other ways.

Coconuts For Your Overall Health

Get Coconut Healthy!

coco-nut1Virgin unrefined coconut oil has none of the problems associated with hydrogenated oils; in fact, unrefined coconut oil is now linked to a number of impressive health benefits.

Referred to as the tree of life in the Philippines, because they use literally every part of the plant, the coconut and specifically coconut oil, was recently vilified in the USA in 1994 when it was linked to theater popcorn and called an artery clogger. But the problem is the health threat is related to partially hydrogenated coconut oil, which researchers have in fact linked to health problems for a long time.

Virgin unrefined coconut oil is incredibly good for you!

What the New York Times is just discovering now has been known all along to anyone who has studied the health of those who live in native tropical cultures, where coconut has been a primary dietary staple for thousands of years.

Back in the 1930s, Dr. Weston Price found South Pacific Islanders whose diets were high in coconut to be healthy and trim, despite high dietary fat, and heart disease was virtually non-existent. Similarly, in 1981, researchers studying two Polynesian communities for whom coconut was the primary caloric energy source found them to have excellent cardiovascular health and fitness. Where were all the clogged arteries and heart attacks from eating all of this “evil” saturated fat? Obviously, coconut oil was doing nothing to harm the heart health of these islanders. Isn’t it about time that America discovers the heart health benefits of coconut oil? Heart disease has been on the rise for the last 60 years in America, the same 60 years that coconut oil has been vilified!

Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Also cooking with coconut oils is far better than using polyunsaturated fats, which include common vegetable oils such as corn, soy, safflower, sunflower and canola. Why?
Cooking your food in omega-6 vegetable oils produces a variety of very toxic chemicals, as well as forming trans-fats. Frying destroys the antioxidants in oil, actually oxidizing the oil, which causes even worse problems for your body than trans-fats.
Most vegetable oils are GM (genetically modified), including more than 90 percent of soy, corn and canola oils.
Vegetable oils contribute to the overabundance of damaged omega-6 fats in your diet, throwing offyour omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Nearly everyone in Western society consumes far too many omega-6 fats — about 100 times more than a century ago — and insufficient omega 3 fats, which contributes to numerous chronic degenerative diseases. There’s actually just one oil that is stable enough to withstand the heat of cooking, and that’s coconut oil.

Coconut water, is a better sports hydration drink than ANY of the commercially available sugary sports drinks, and is both sterile and an isotonic beverage, meaning it has the same electrolyte consistency of human blood, which enabled medics in the Pacific Theater in World War II to use it as an emergency substitute for blood plasma.

Doesn’t drinking a beverage with the same electrolyte balance as human blood sound like a good idea? It does to me. It’s also better to get your coconut water straight out of a young, green coconut and avoid the commercially available products on the market, which I consider to be a processed food.

Coconut oil also has an immune boosting fat called lauric acid and has been shown to be helpful in improving metabolic rates to facilitate weight loss. Personally I believe that unless you are allergic to coconuts you should find ways to regularly use it in your diet. I typically use one to two tablespoons a day in my morning breakfast breakfast shake, consisting of berries, kefir, fresh cilantro, kale, banana, chia seed, hemp hearts and or any combo of added fruits or greens that are in my fridge at the time.

Also, I now exclusively use virgin coconut oil as my skin moisturizer, applying it from top to bottom, that is hair/scalp all the way to feet, and, although a tad oily at first, if you rub it in good, the oiliness goes away quite quickly, and you get the added benefit of self massage 😉

Virgin Coconut Oil…An Absolute Healthy Must Have DAILY!

Avocado is rich in magnesium that reduces risk of excess belly fat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar. Some of you might not know that you can also blend an avocado pit in your smoothie. It is packed with very good nutrients. It has the life force. It is very high Qi food! It’s also the highest in soluble fiber. This soluble fiber binds to the fat and excess cholesterol. Then we can lower cholesterol and improve heart function naturally. We can improve the blood circulation by pulling out all the fatty deposits in our circulatory system with the soluble fiber of the avocado seed. Soluble fiber is very difficult to get in our diet. Oatmeal has some, but it cannot compare with the avocado seed. Any heart disease patient must eat the avocado including the seed. Avocados offer a generous supply of healthy fats, vitamin A, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and vitamin E. There are tremendous benefits to adding fresh avocado to your smoothie, it makes many of the nutrients in the other foods you eat much more easily absorbed. Vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, astraxanthin, zeaxanthin, and calcium are all 50 to 1000 per cent better absorbed in the presence of fats from avocado. It is not necessary to use a lot of avocado to enhance absorption of fat-soluble nutrients. As little as 1 teaspoon of avocado is enough. Avocados are high in good fat, but they also deliver a day’s supply of magnesium, and half a day’s supply of fiber! The avocado smoothies that are very popular in Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia are made with sweetened condensed milk. You can make a dairy-free version with almond, coconut, or rice milk. For a traditional Mexican avocado smoothie, sweeten with agave nectar. Use a half to one whole fresh avocado for every two cups of milk or milk substitute to make an avocado smoothie. For flavored smoothies, use half of the avocado for every two cups of milk or milk substitute with peaches, mangos, pineapple, or any kind of berries. Really the friut added is totally up to your taste and the consistency of the smoothie. As they say “Have it Your Way” season to taste so to speak. You will quickly develop your own recipe and hopefully learn to love avocado smoothies and avocados daily as they are one of the planets most delicious and nutritious foods.
