Himalayan crystal salt is mined by hand in the Himalayan Mountains of Pakistan! It is not like any salt you have ever tasted. It is actually good for you. It contains many of the necessary minerals required for good health plus trace elements. It is mined from ancient rock formations that have been protected from environmental pollutants.

Due to its crystalline shape, German naturopathic doctor, Barbara Hendel, says that Himalayan salt has its own vibrational energy field. This may be the reason many users of this crystal salt claim it gives them additional energy. Himalayan crystal salt even surpasses the benefits of sea salt.

Dr. Hendel conducted tests using an electoacupuncture device to measure energy points on the hands and feet. The test participants were tested before and after taking Himalayan crystal salt in liquid form. The test results showed that the participants were able to balance their energy meridians on their body. Those areas that tested high were reduced into a more healthy range and those areas that tested low were raised to a more desirable level.
