This is what happens to your body when you eat Pink Himalayan Salt!

Pink salt is a salt that is found in the Himalayan mountains in a range stretching across Asia through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India.

Why is it pink?
The different hues of pink, red, and white are an indication of the salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content. Pink Himalayan crystal salt contains all of the 84 elements found in your body, just to name a few: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

So, why should I use this instead of my normal salt?
Some of the benefits that you can expect by consuming this salt in place of regular table salt include:
Aiding in vascular health
Supporting healthy lungs and respiratory function
Promoting a stable pH balance within the cells
Reducing the signs of aging
Promoting healthy sleep patterns
Strengthen bones
Lowers blood pressure
Improves circulation
Detoxifying the body of heavy metals
Promote healthy pH balance in your cells
Regulate the water content throughout your body
Iodine- Natural salts, like pink salt, are rich in iodine. This means that it does not need to be artificially added in.
Less sodium- Yes, I know, that sounds strange, but Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals. They are formed naturally in the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals like sulphate, bicarbonate, bromide, and strontium.

Himalayan salt can:
Create an electrolyte balance
Increase hydration
Prevent muscle cramping
Balance the Ph (alkaline/acidity) and help acid reflux.

Pink salt – Why it is better than table salt:

Conventional table salt is completely stripped of a good majority of its minerals with the exception of sodium and chloride. It is bleached, cleaned with chemicals and then heated to an extremely high temperature. Then the iodine is added in that is almost always synthetic that is quite difficult for our bodies to take in. Many studies have shown that for each gram of table salt consumed the body cannot process, your body will use 20 times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the amount of sodium chloride that is presented.

The best part is…
Versatility! That’s right, it can be used for more than just its food seasoning properties.
Air Purifier- crystal rock lamps make wonderful air-purifiers!
Bathing- throw a handful into the bath tub for a detoxifying Himalayan salt bath. The replenishing nutrients help to stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles.
Decoration- they make lovely food decoration; you can also buy salt slabs to present your food on as well as lamps and holders!

Believe me, once you make this investment you will never go back!

1. Sandflies are attracted to dark colors? To keep bites at bay this summer wear light colored clothing, avoid sweet smelling body products and use insect repellent – especially around the ankles as they sart their attack at ground level.
2. Massoud Hassani, a product designer from Afghanistan, built (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.
Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afghanistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.

Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.

Times When You Just Have To Trust The Pilot.

I no longer have a fear of flying, as I have now flown several thousand miles so have more confidence these days. But I do respect the fact that I am thousands of feet above earth, and totaly rely on the pilots and of course the capability of the planes. In the case of these pictures you would have no option. I don’t know if you have seen these shots but I haven’t. I thought they were pretty amazing.
