These days, getting as healthy as possible is on my mind a lot. I am trying to incorporate small, daily changes to create healthy habits. Two things I would like to address is my chronic dehydration, and adrenal issues. In my quest to remedy these, I am turning to salt to help; specifically Sole Water!
This is all you need to start
Sole is a concentrated salt water brine you dilute with more water and drink. It is made with.....salt and water!! How will this help you?? I think a lot of us are chronically dehydrated. Read on my friends....
We use Pink Himilayan Salt or Celtic Grey Salt for everything. I am making my sole with Celtic Grey, simply because I have more of it than the Himalayan on hand. Why don't we use table salt? Because not all salt is created equal.
Pink Hinalayan Salt
Celtic salt is harvested off the northwest coast of France, and is gray in color. Pink Himalayan salt, is harvested from clay ponds in Pakistan salt mines about 300 kilometers from the Himalayas. Both contain 60 to 84 minerals and since they are unrefined, they do not contain any chemicals, preservatives, or any other additives. The unique properties of these salts nourish the body, replenish and balance minerals and electrolytes as well as supporting the adrenal glands.
Grey Celtic Salt
Table salt is the opposite of all this. It will make you thirsty and retain fluids. White table salt is horrible for us! It is so heavily processed that all of the essential nutrients are missing. While it still tastes like salt, the lack of minerals cause our bodies to continue searching...sending you salt craving signals. So, you eat salt, you crave more salt! There are also additives to prevent clumping. These additives will actually cause you to retain water but remain dehydrated! Think edema.
No pic of table salt because I have none!!!
Quick summary of why I need (and likely you too) need this in your life ~ Drinking sole water each morning can help balance your systemic pH and provide trace minerals. This in turn supports hydration, detoxification, hormone balance, muscle cramps, blood pressure, sleep patterns, energy levels, adrenal function and blood sugar! It also supports electrical and cell function. Do you suffer from gut problems? We need salt to make hydrochloric acid in our stomachs which stops the bad bacteria as well as making digestive enzymes. I am hoping mostly for hydration benefits. Chronic hydration leads to so many problems...a lot of which I currently deal with.
Ok, ok. How do you make it?? Easy peasy.
Fill a small glass jar about 1/4 of the way with Celtic or Himilayan salt.
Add filtered water to one inch to the top.
Stir well and seal (plastic lid and spoon, no metal!!) and let sit overnight in the fridge.
After 12 hrs, there should still be undissolved salt in the jar, this is how you know the water is fully saturated with salt. If you need, add more salt and wait a few more hours.
Right after mixing...you want to see some salt left
12 hours later. Salt is still there, we are good to go!
Each morning, add 1 teaspoon of sole, into some room temperature water. It will keep for months, you can keep adding to your jar with salt and water as needed.
Making sole water this morning. I can hardly taste any salt now!
You can see the difference in the 2 waters when you drop it in
Cheers to hydration!!
I am on my 6th day. My face is looking more hydrated I think? I am drinking more water and retaining it longer. I haven't had a headache since starting and I am hoping my joints feel better after a few weeks. How did I just find out about this?!? Sometimes health comes in the simplest forms....do you drink sole? I would love to hear your results:)
Thank you for reading! Take care of you and yours ❤
