Natural salt is one of the most healing foods on earth. In contrast, regular table salt is inorganic and creates mineral deficiency, making it more difficult for our bodies to process and breakdown. After reading these five main healing properties of salt, consider replacing the everyday table salt with some natural, organic, and mineral-rich salt instead! Kill two birds with one stone using natural salts to both nourish and heal your body.

Neutralizes Acid

Salt neutralizes and reduces acids in our body that are associated with potentially life-threatening diseases. If the body’s pH level is either too acidic or too alkaline, the environment is at risk for disease to take hold. A healthy balance is always important to keep in mind!

Helps With Weight Loss

The salt water flush, also known as the colon cleanse, is used to assist your digestive system. This forcefully flushes out the content in your colon to prevent any toxins or unwanted material from sitting in your system for too long.

Relieves Skin Conditions

For skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, or even rashes from external factors such as poison ivy, there’s nothing a salt bath can’t cure. The minerals in the salt deeply cleans the pores, kills bacteria, and detoxifies the skin.

Contains 24 Essential Trace Minerals

Salt has 92 trace minerals, and 24 of them are proven to be essential to prevent deficiency. This could be the loss of control of ions, which may lead to cell damage and cause muscle spasms, brain damage, and nervous disorders. Many of us forget that salt is the main reason our cells are able to function!

Relieves Joint Pain

Epsom salt contains two important elements: magnesium and sulfate. These elements help the muscles and nerves in your body to function properly. Salt baths are a great remedy to reduce joint pain and arthritis. While magnesium has anti-inflammatory properties, sulfate promotes the absorption of nutrients into the skin. Aside from joint pain, epsom salt baths are even able to treat migraines!
