“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
~ Mathew 5:13-16
Salt has always had a high value for our health and as a commodity. In the ancient world Roman soldiers received their wages in salt. The Greeks considered salt to be an essence of the Divine. At one time Mosaic Law required that all offerings to God presented by the Israelites contain some form of salt (Lev.2:13). When Jesus spoke to his disciples letting them know that they were “the salt of the earth,” they understood it to mean that they were very high in value. While the universal importance of salt is now cloaked in hearsay and allopathic mystique, we know that individuals advised to go on a low sodium diet suffer greater risks of heart disease and diabetes. All iodized salt should be banned outright as it is completely stripped of minerals and actually harmful to our health. It is time to build the true value of salt back into our diets and here is the why and how of it!
Solé Brine (pronounced So-lay)
Did you know that most folks are deplete in minerals? If you think of your bones, like the superstructure of a building with all the tissues, organs and skin draped over it, you want to make sure that this scaffolding is supporting you for about 100 years or so. The reason we’re deplete is because most of us don’t drink water from brooks or streams that have picked up minerals on the way to your hand pump in the yard for almost 100 years. The other reason is that our foods are also bereft of proper minerals required by our bodies, given that our soils are stripped. Ross Bishop states, “A 1999 study from the University of Wisconsin found that three decades of the overuse of nitrogen in farming has destroyed the soil’s fertility, causing it to age the equivalent of 5,000 years in 30 … For the amount of manganese you used to get in 10 green beans you would have to eat 300. You have to eat 11 bowls of spinach to receive the same amount of copper that you used to get in one bowl. To receive the same amount of iron in one tomato prior to 1945, you would have to eat 1,938 tomatoes today. Carrots used to have 10,000 IU of beta-carotene, now they have less that 70. Wheat used to be 40% protein, whereas now it is less that 10%. It goes on. . .” Even our bread is no longer stone ground, where minerals used to be baked right into whole grain goodness.
What is a modern person supposed to do? Well, we can supplement 84 minerals from a whole super food from a place on earth that still does not have any recorded pollution of any kind. Bio-available minerals from a Solé Brine solution derived from Himalayan salt is an ideal source, even showing the most amazing results in dark field microscopy.
Dark Field Microscope Analysis
In a dark field microscope analysis done on 3 groups of individuals in December 2002 and January 2003, it was observed that the solution created some amazing alterations to the blood as you can see below. The simple test entailed taking a drop of blood from a person and analyzing it, then feeding a teaspoon of brine solution with a glass of water to this person, and 30 minutes later, repeating the blood test.

After brine ingestion:
The “before” pictures clearly show clumped blood, the “after” pictures show a more fluid blood, with more space between the blood cells, a healthier blood. (Source: http://www.breathofsalt.com/brine.htm)
Benefits of Drinking Brine
– The brine supplies the body with 84 minerals that the body can store and utilize over a period of up to 24 hours.
– It can raise the pH balance to a healthy alkaline level closer to an ideal 7.2.
– Solé can help to “sweep away” the sediment associated with arthritic deposits, kidney and gall stones.
– When the body has its resources met, it is less likely to have negative cravings for harmful foods.
– It can help to cleanse tissues, muscular, organs and skin congestion.
Solé (So-lay) is named for the supersaturated solution of water and Himalayan crystal salt. It is made up of the primal properties of pure solar light energy of these pink rocks immersed in water. In essence, a liquid materialization of captured sunlight! “Sol,” from the Latin for sun, is literally fluid light energy captured in a mason jar for your ultimate benefit. After 24 hours, the positive ions from the mineral rocks surround the negative ions of the molecules of water and then alternatively the negative ions of the salt surround the positive ions of the water molecules in a polaric dance, resulting in hydrolysis (a chemical reaction in which a compound reacts with water to produce other compounds).
This whole new chemical structure really isn’t salt or water anymore, creating a whole new vibration that our body wholly assimilates for its own use to heal inflammation, setting an example of primal whole health for our entire organism. It’s like hitting a reset button! Our organism remembers the primordial nature of our fluid, light imbued creator in a teaspoon. The vibratory frequency of the Solé reminds us how to structure our anatomy after a healthy bio-chemical model; a balanced and oscillating being in homeostasis respecting its inherent polarities.
For this reason, Solé brine is best taken on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning so that there are few other influences in the body. Just one teaspoon of brine in pure water at this time will also promote regularity, as you may find yourself keen to eliminate stool within 30 minutes of taking your morning dose. Some folks need to work up to the one teaspoon, even starting with a drop as the vibratory frequency is that powerful, especially in organisms that are more challenged with a greater need for healing. Within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines are stimulated, affecting digestion and metabolism as conductivity is increased in the body, ultimately affecting circulation and eliminating excess toxicity and inappropriate mineralization in joints. The salty brine allows your body’s currents to flow in freedom as intended.
Balance the Body’s pH Factor and Get Rid of Heavy Metals
The Neutralizing 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. However, 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? One cause has been determined. Our houses are charged with electromagnetic devices, such as TVs, stereos, computers, microwave ovens and the basic electric currents running through our walls. And, when not at home, we hold cell phones to our ears while driving in our cars and walking through our daily lives. This electro-smog causes an excess of positively charged ions that disturb the balance between the positively and negatively charged particles. Further, it creates an excess of positively charged, chemically unbound particles in the air. Only thirty seconds on a cell phone are enough to open up our blood-brain-barrier, a natural barrier that protects our brain from toxins, for eight hours. A Swedish study showed that ninety percent of the women who used a copper-T I.U.D. as their birth control method, while simultaneously using cell phones, developed uterine cancer; the cause being that the I.U.D. functioned as a transmitter and receiver of unnatural, dissonant vibrations.” (Source:http://www.quantumbalancing.com/news/sea_salt.htm)
Not only is the brine helpful with the pH balance in the body and preventing most diseases such as Cancer, it is also a natural chelator, releasing harmful heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead and the calcified deposits contributing to arthritic complaints. It will break down the molecular structure of any unwanted matter, just as it will remove hard calcium build up in cooking pots or a teapot. The salt even creates a chemical reaction, replacing the bad with the good through a process of metabolising unwanted islets of cell organization in the body (as illustrated in the images above), helping to digest unwanted stored foods when you’re converting over to the foods that are right for your blood type. The unwanted protein structures are eliminated through the the urogenital system.
The Healing Power of Brine
Every human organism is different and at varying levels of health. When first engaging with a whole superfood such as Solé, you are taking into your body life energy that can have a powerful effect. For those who are suffering more armoring and a more protracted state of disease, please be mindful by starting slowing with just a drop of brine in a cup of water and then working your way up to a teaspoon in a cup of water over a period of time. WARNING: While brine baths have a positive effect on many ailments, they are also demanding on your circulatory system. Please consider your age and your health. If you suffer from weak or poor heart circulation, are pregnant or have any health problems, always consult your health professional first.
The Recipe For Making Solé Brine Solution
We make ours in a small to medium mason jar with a plastic lid (the metal lid will rust over time). Place 3-4 rock chunks (Health Food Stores can order in, or you can buy them right off of the internet) in the jar, and cover with pure spring water or properly filtered well water. Tap water with chlorine or fluoride is not recommended in any form. To obtain a supersaturated solution, add enough salt that some of the solid chunk remains, unable to melt anymore. At this point, you’ll know that the the liquid hasn’t any molecular capacity to absorb anymore of the salt within a 24 hour period. Your brine is now ready. Start with one drop in a cup of water first thing in the morning at least 15 minutes before you have breakfast. As the salt diminishes, you can add more salt rock and top up with water.
Brushing Your Teeth:
Solé brine works wonders also balancing pH in your mouth, helping to attend to the cause of unwanted bacteria that contributes to canker sores, bad breath and bleeding gums. Let us know, and we’ll go after the root issue with curative homeopathic medicine.
Sore Throat Gargle:
Place up to a teaspoon of the solution in a cup of water, as if you’re preparing your brine, and gargle until your throat feels better. Rinse and repeat about 3-4 times over the course of a day.
Sinus Bath In Your Neti Pot:
Sinus congestion can be helped immensely by running brine solution through them. Just prepare the brine as you normally would to drink, fill your neti pot and run through your sinus cavities.
The Brine Bath:
I use a brine bath for any kind of skin affection, bug bites, joint or muscle pain. I exercise about an hour six days a week and I use my baths to relax, help strengthen my immune function and detoxify. In order to maximize the effect of the therapeutic salt bath, you need to ensure you have the right concentration of salt to water in order to obtain the maximum osmotic exchange. For about 100-200 litres (27-32 gallons), at least 1kg (2.2 lbs.) of natural salt is required. Also, the bath’s temperature should be as close to 37 degrees (97 degrees Fahrenheit) as possible. Plan to stay immersed in the bath for about 20-30 minutes. During this time, the body will reach the same salt concentration both inside and out, a primal prenatal state liken to before birth.
This primordial ionic mineralization will stimulate natural cell growth in your living cell layers. If you have any bio-energetic weak areas, the bath will help to balance the natural flow of energy, releasing the ill effects from any unnatural accumulation. This is called homeostasis, which is the desired outcome. Apparently, the detox bath can be compared to a 3 day fast, according to EMR Labs, LLC. (Source: http://www.quantumbalancing.com/news/sea_salt.htm)
Due to the sodium chloride content, similar to a type of naturally safe chlorine, folks can use a hot-tub, pool, or even tub-bath that uses natural salt and be assured of it’s disinfecting properties. EMR Labs, LLC recommends that detox brine baths are typically the most beneficial at the shift in moon phases, at the new moon, or at full moon, for optimal release of toxicity.
Brine Steam Inhalation for Asthma or Bronchitis:
Before Heilkunst Medicine, my son suffered repeated respiratory tract issues. Asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, and ear infections plagued him during his young years. During the winter months, when he was most affected, he was often seen kneeling on the floor in the kitchen over a hot pot of water with dissolved salt in it. The solution requires about 10% salt per water volume and you can drape a cotton t-towel over the sufferers head for 10-30 minutes depending on the severity of the infection. The longer period is required for the brine to capture and bind to the poisonous deposits in the lungs helping to produce a productive mucus that will be coughed to the surface to be excreted depending on the health of the individual.
Arthritis and Gout:
Treat the underlying cause using the principles of Heilkunst Medicine. I wish I’d known this when I cared for an ailing uncle who had gout/diabetic feet with open sores, about 30 years ago. Internally, follow the general directions above for ingesting Solé brine daily on an empty stomach. Be sure to drink between 2-3 litres of water a day (2 to 3 quarts) over the course of the day to create a tide to wash away the mineralization and uric acid associated with arthritis and gout suffering. You can also soak a cloth in pure brine solution (about 26%) and make a cold poultice, applying it to the infected areas. It will sting, but it will work. Wrap in a dry cloth to keep clean.
Treat the underlying cause using the principles of Heilkunst Medicine. Use the same general recipe above for Solé taking up to 1 tsp. in fresh spring water. Be sure to drink 2-3 litres (2-3 quarts) of fresh spring water every day in order to create a tidal bore in the body, washing the inappropriate mineralized debris from the body. You can also make a warm poultice with a concentration of the brine (at least 10%) and ½ oz of salt for every 4 oz of water. As well, you can fill a cotton or linen bag with salt chunks and heat in the oven to 125-140 degrees F. Remove the bag and apply it to your aching back, joints or bathe with them. Water at body temperature (around 97 degrees F.) is perfect for this bath.
A poultice made of brine (brine poultice) – When dealing with a scrape or small open wound, dilute a ½ ounce of crystal salt into a ½ cup of water. If you use too much salt, it will cause a disagreeable burning sensation. Be sure to use only non-carbonated mineral water from a purified source to treat any open wounds. Use a sterile gauze, soak it in the brine solution, squeeze some of the excess water from it and apply to the wound. Wrap a dry cloth around while also taking some Calendula, either topically as a salve or orally homeopathically, and prepare to be amazed at the power of your healing.
De-tox, Flu and Fever Relief:
The idea behind these conditions is to promote sweating.
Dip a clean cotton shirt in a 3% brine solution – 2 Tbsp. (60 ml) of crystal salt diluted in 1 Quart (1 liter) of water. Soak the shirt thoroughly and put it on. Cover (wrap) yourself in a dry towel and lay in bed (covered with your blanket.) After about half an hour you will start sweating. You can support the effect by drinking a cup of Linden blossom tea. Stay in bed for 60 to 90 minutes. Take off your shirt and shower. Lie down for one hour to rest. This procedure is an excellent detoxification tool and activates the metabolism. The brine shirt shows excellent results with high temperature viral conditions. In such cases, it is better than the brine bath.”
Brine Soaked Socks – This procedure has a similar effect as the shirt but is especially helpful when you suffer from cold feet and gout. Soak a pair of clean cotton socks in a 3-5% brine solution – 2 to 4 Tbsp. of crystal salt diluted in 1 Quart of water. Wring the sock thoroughly and put them on. Wrap your feet in a dry towel. Leave it on for about one hour. Rest awhile after you remove the salty socks. (Source: http://www.quantumbalancing.com/news/sea_salt.htm)
Be sure to cure the underlying cause using the principles of Heilkunst Medicine. To promote healing, take the Solé brine daily as recommended above and also use the brine baths as illustrated above, unless you’re pregnant or have advanced circulation issues.
Use Heilkunst Medicine to cure the underlying cause of this persistent disease condition, as the pathic expression of the root cause will keep coming back until it is cured outright. However, to support the healing/sustentive side, you can use a sitz bath with 26% brine solution in order to relieve pain from the genital blisters (or dip cotton swab in brine and apply it to affected area), in addition to ingesting the tsp. of brine in pure water daily.

I recently found of lost salt rocks I bought from your clinic in Ottawa. However, some are now white rather than pink. Are they still usable?
Yes, the rocks will be perfectly fine. Salt doesn’t “go bad”. The white usually indicates the rocks have been exposed to some humidity, the resulting white on the outside having to do the the ionic bond structure.
Thanks, – Diane
Hi Allison, Is it normal for the salt to form a salt crust outside on the glass jar ? Thank you ~Beth
Yes, for sure. Crystals will proliferated in a concentrated environment. I always use a large mouth mason jar with a plastic lid so that the salt doesn’t corrode the metal and create rust. Warmly, Allyson
