Water of life
Salt. We’ve heard a lot lately about it lately and have been told that we shouldn’t eat or drink too much of it all the time. But did you know that like water and oxygen, we simply cannot live without salt? Lucky for us, there are many alternatives to regular table salt (the focus of most of the debate) that are actually good for you. For instance, options like Epsom salt, Himalayan salt, Celtic salt and sea salt contain minerals have antimicrobial properties and help cleanse the body. They’re simply really good for your body!
For years, my mother has drunk a glass of water with a little salt in it every now and then. I’m starting to understand why. It’s called the water of life. I started drinking it recently as well and it works like a charm to improve my energy levels. Salt water helps the body rid itself of waste materials and restores the fluid balance in the cells in your body. It’s an amazing option for a quick fix; all you need is salt! Do make sure you use Himalayan salt crystals, which you can find at your local organic food store.
‘Water of life’ is not just amazing for your insides; you can also use it on bug bites and to treat swelling and other skin problems. Soak a cotton pad with it and dab it on the wound/problem area – the solution will disinfect the area and help it to heal faster.
Water of life: the making of
Fill a glass jar or glass with 300 ml water and 1 Himalayan salt crystal. After about four hours, the crystal will have dissolved, creating a saturated solution. Give the water a quick stir and it’s ready to drink. Drink it from time to time like this or use it as a detox – dissolve one teaspoon of the water of life in a glass of filtered water and drink it on an empty stomach, every morning for three months.
It’s an amazing sports drink as well – gives you REAL energy!
