The homeopathic use of sea salt is making a comeback due to interest and proof at the scientific level, especially in regards to cellular health and internal pH.
“Simultaneously present in the mineral, plant, and animal realms, mineral salts are responsible for the transfer of the energy running through all their substances and organisms,” Ann Wigmore writes. “It has long been thought that the variety and abundance of the modern diet was enough to prevent any risk of nutrient deficiency. We now know, however, that there is no factual basis for this assumption.”
Homeopathic, natural mineral supplements offer a critical benefit by comparison to synthetic supplements. You can take a synthetic calcium supplement and it will show up in your blood, for example, yet very little (if any) reaches the cellular level. Sea salt so closely mimics an animal’s cellular environment that its nutrients are able to cross the cellular barrier to nurture and protect cells, while also ensuring their optimum function. Healthy cellular function is the very essence of a healthy body and life itself.
Bio-available minerals and trace elements are available as salts. Quality sea salt contains every element on the Periodic Table in perfect balance, mimicking the basic characteristics of all living things.
Andre Passebecq writes, “Seawater is a living environment that displays a remarkable mineral balance in comparison to that of the body. All of its elements occur naturally in sizes and proportions quite close to those encountered in the internal cellular environment of the body, and form a very active biological synergy.”
DNA & RNA synthesis requires trace elements to replace and form new cells. If those trace elements aren’t present or balanced, the DNA molecule is unable to provide genetic information needed for it to function properly. The cell will remain, but will constantly misfire. Too many cells in this state may cause diseases, tumors, and premature aging.
“No cellular functions can be produced correctly if the body isn’t receiving all the minerals and trace elements the metabolism needs. . . . It so happens that all degenerative diseases originate, to one degree or another, in a severe mineral depletion of the body.” states Dr. Robert Lafave, of the US Metabolic Research Center.
Our system is equipped with the ability to utilize colloidal minerals and trace elements as required for a range of functions, both defensive and offensive, all of which facilitate regeneration and optimum health. In an amazing and seemingly infinite process, colloidal minerals and trace elements allow the body to take what it needs at any given time and eliminate what it doesn’t require. It’s how all living things are built to function, if only they are given what they require to excel at it.
My first lesson learned while researching sea salt, was that container of white sea salt on my table isn’t the real deal. Unrefined sea salt retains all minerals and trace elements, which shows in the color. Pristine white salts have been refined at the cost of significant mineral loss, and may also have been processed with bleach.
The second thing I learned is the benefits reflect the quality of the salt, even if it’s sold under the same name.
Quality Silver Sea Salt:
- Harvested and processed by hand using natural processes and certified organic.
- Human (food) grade with a level of purity so high it can safely be used in aquariums.
- Source of more than 80 natural minerals and trace elements.
- Balances internal pH (an acidic pH facilitates disease)
- Balances electrolytes
- Boosts immunity
- Anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasite properties.
- May be useful in treating allergies
- Facilitates optimum function of the digestive system
- Increases energy
- Lower in sodium than other mineral salts.
- Improves palatability
- Fine grind for easy mixing & fast dissolution
We found our mineral salt “holy grail” in France, among artisans who have been organically “farming” grey/gris/silver sea salt by hand for well over a thousand years, using a process unique to them. Atlantic seawater is channeled into the marshes at high tide where it is naturally dried in clay ponds and harvested by hand. Silver mineral salt not only includes minerals from the ocean, but also the minerals from the clay. Salt and clay minerals combine to make up the most complete, organic, natural, unrefined mineral supplement on the market today. The mineral content is revealed by its silver color. Used by gourmet chefs, Silver Sea Salt is certified organic and kosher in France. It contains no anti-caking agents, bleach residue, or other additives/impurities.
For Pets: Silver sea salt can be lightly sprinkled on pet food or be mixed into homemade recipes. It greatly increases palatability of specialty diets. It can also be mixed into bathwater. Silver Sea Salt can be added to homemade salt blocks for horses, or be added to their feed. You can adjust the amount you provide according to the situation. For example, we add a couple of granules to our cat’s wet food to help balance her electrolytes, as she is in the early stages of kidney disease. We also use it in homemade treats & pet food recipes. We recommend consultation with a veterinarian to ensure mineral salts will not negatively impact existing conditions.
For Aquariums: The use of Silver Sea Salt has revolutionized the the freshwater and marine aquarium hobby. Fish are able to absorb minerals from their environment as well as in their food. This salt is lower in sodium than aquarium salt, yet substantially more complete in its mineral profile than any sea salt on the market. It can be used as a supplement in very small amounts for a full range of benefits to either freshwater or marine animals. We have tested Silver Sea Salt in our own aquariums with noticeable improvement in the overall health, growth and activity of our fish. As a bonus, plants utilize the minerals too.
Silver Sea Salt will not harm the aquarium’s biological filter (beneficial bacteria). Unlike aquarium salt, very little of this mineral-drenched supplement is required for optimum fish health, so it doesn’t tax the system of freshwater fish. We use only 1/4 tsp/20 gallons. Smaller tanks get a quick dash from a salt shaker. Since it doesn’t evaporate, you will only need to replace what you take out. If you remove 20 gallons of water from a 90 gallon fish tank during a water change, you would only add 1/4 tsp of Silver Sea Salt back in. Eight ounces supplements at least 8000 gallons.
