Almost five years ago, when My middle daughter was still just a baby, I was having unusual, and painful symptoms out of the blue. My primary care physician at the time sent me to a rheumatologist who then diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. So started the journey of managing symptoms with prescription drugs like Neurontin and Tramadol. (I was obviously not the "crunchy mom" that I have become just yet). I had to wean my baby already from starting Wellbutrin for Post Partum Depression a few months prior. I believe it was the Neurontin (in combination with taking the Wellbutrin) that actually gave me suicidal thoughts! Seriously, my life was good. I had 2 amazing baby girls, a dashing husband, a roof over my head, everything I needed... yet two weeks into the medicine I caught myself having these CRAZY thoughts. Thoughts of hurting myself! I couldn't believe what I was thinking. Me? A Christian woman! Having thoughts of taking the precious gift of life that the Lord had bestowed upon me. I can only explain it as it was like I had been taken over by a demonic force... Sure my body was feeling a whole lot better. My joints and trigger points weren't in extreme pain anymore. Physically, it had become easy for me to get out of bed in the morning for the first time in over a year... but nothing was worth loosing my mind, loosing control of my thoughts over. You see, I didn't seek God first about my health. I sought pharmaceuticals to mask my pain (and we all know pharmaceutical companies can't always be trusted). God said that the thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy. (John 10:10) Only God can be the true restorer of our brokenness... physically, mentally, and most importantly... spiritually! So I stopped the medicine immediately. The moment I realized what was going on with me.

And I prayed.

Around that time I went to a CHAP convention (a homeschool convention in Pennsylvania) with a dear friend, and this was a pivotal moment in my life because when we got there, I noticed her take out a small container of salt and mix it into water and drink it. I was confused, but intrigued. She then began to tell me how this remedy has helped her with some of her ailments such as adrenal fatigue. (I didn't know it at the time, but I would become forever grateful for that friend, in more ways then she would ever know...) I went home after the convention thinking not much more of the "salt incident", but still praying for God to show me how to get out of this cycle of self medicating with prescription drugs... knowing that wasn't what He wanted for my life. While seeking answers in scripture The Lord brought me to the verse on "the salt of the earth". "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men." (Matthew 5:13). Yes, I know this text is meant to carry a metaphorical meaning, but the Lord kept bringing me back to it. Why did He want to keep showing me this? And why did He specifically use salt in this metaphor? So began my research on salt.

I learned that "Salt had two purposes in the Middle East of the first century. Because of the lack of refrigeration, salt was used to preserve food, especially meat which would quickly spoil in the desert environment. Believers in Christ are preservatives to the world, preserving it from the evil inherent in the society of ungodly men whose unredeemed natures are corrupted by sin (Psalm 14:3; Romans 8:8)... Second, salt was used then, as now, as a flavor enhancer. In the same way that salt enhances the flavor of the food it seasons, the followers of Christ stand out as those who “enhance” the flavor of life in this world. Christians, living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in obedience to Christ, will inevitably influence the world for good, as salt has a positive influence on the flavor of the food it seasons. Where there is strife, we are to be peacemakers; where there is sorrow, we are to be the ministers of Christ, binding up wounds, and where there is hatred, we are to exemplify the love of God in Christ, returning good for evil (Luke 6:35)." (

Everything I have been taught up until this point in my life about salt was that it was bad. Salt will give you high cholesterol. Salt can cause high blood pressure. Salt will make you fat! But God wouldn't speak of something as if it were so important, compare us to something as if it were beneficial... if it were actually bad! That's when I started researching salt farther. "Is salt really bad for you?" Is one of the google searches I began with. Many hours later, I felt like my whole world had been turned upside down. You see God didn't create salt in the earth and the seas to be bad for us. It was for our benefit! And it's benefits are many!

Turns out, Himalayan pink crystal salt, otherwise know as Himalayan salt has matured over the course of time as we know it under intense tectonic pressure in an environment that’s free of toxins and impurities. It is salt in its most purest form. Whereas man made, process, bleached, synthetically iodized table salt is packed with impurities and is actually very toxic for human consumption. Himalayan salt naturally contains 84 trace minerals (which is why it holds its pink color) that benefit the body in many ways.

One way to be sure you reap the most benefits of Himalayan salt is by drinking a tall glass of water with a teaspoon of Himalayan salt Solé solution in it each morning on an empty stomach.

I have been taking Solé every morning for almost 4 and a half years... and the results are amazing! I not only have experience 90% less Fibromyalgia symptoms, I have discovered it has helped me in so many other ways.

Just look at all these benefits:

  1. Solé balances the Body's pH Factor.

  2. Solé detoxes the body of Heavy Metals.

  3. Solé can supply the body with the combined energy of 84 essential ionized minerals found in pink himalayan crystal salt which the body can hold for up to 24 hours.

  4. Solé can harmonize the alkaline/acidity balance in the body and normalize blood pressure.

  5. Solé can dissolve and eliminate sediments which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism like arthritis and kidney and gall bladder stones.

  6. Solé can lower the craving for addictive desires.

  7. Solé can help with skin diseases by cleaning from inside out.

  8. Solé is important for circulation.

  9. Solé is essential for the prevention of muscle cramps.

  10. Solé is absolutely vital to making the structure of bones firm.

  11. Solé is vital for sleep regulation.

  12. A little Solé on the tongue will help stop persistent dry coughs.

  13. Solé is vital to the communication and information processing between nerve cells.

  14. Himalayan salt is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure, in conjunction with water, as Solé.

  15. Solé is vital for balancing the sugar levels in the blood.

  16. Solé is vital for the generation of hydroelectric energy in your body's cells.

  17. Solé is vital to the nerve cells for communication and information processing.

  18. Solé is vital for absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract.

  19. Solé helps with constipation.

  20. Solé is vital for clearing up congestion of the sinuses.

  21. Solé detoxifies the body by balancing systemic pH.

  22. Solé improves hydration by providing trace minerals.

  23. Solé improves mineral status of the body.

  24. Solé reduces muscle cramps by improving minerals and hydration.

  25. Solé helps balance blood sugar.

  26. Solé supports hormone balance for everyone, no matter what hormonal issues you face.

  27. Solé helps balance blood pressure because it provides unrefined, mineral-rich salt in an ionic solution.

  28. Solé improves sleep by supporting blood sugar and hormone balance.

  29. Solé acts as a powerful antihistamine.

  30. Solé supports weight loss by balancing hormones and improving energy.

  31. Gargle with a little pure Solé solution to help eliminate a sore throat.

  32. Solé improves thyroid and adrenal function.

  33. Solé can cure and prevents migraines.

  34. Solé rids the body of inflamation.

I may have mentioned a couple of those benefits twice, but it's just that awesome! Lol

Solé is easy (and inexpensive) to make too. Just pour himalayan salt into a mason jar about half way. Pour purified or spring water to fill the jar. Stir. If in the morning the salt is all dissolved, add more salt and stir again. (You should see a good amount of salt left on the bottom for it to be ready to use... this is how you know the saturation is right). Then every morning on an empty stomach put a teaspoon of solé in a glass of water, stir and drink the whole glass. After a week start reaping the benefits. That simple.

(Never use a metal lid on your jar of solé, a peanut/nut butter jar lid fits perfect on a mason jar btw. Never use a metal measuring spoon or anything metal to stir...metal deionizes the solution... we don't want that).

To God be the glory for my healing, if it weren't for His answered prayer and guidance I would have never discovered the amazing benefits of Himalayan salt, and Himalayan Solé solution! Thank You God! You are so good... always!

I love Sherpa Pink Himalayan salt. Here are a few different options.

Other great ways to incorporate Himalayan salt benefits into your life is to take detox baths with it. I will talk about this in a future blog post. You can use any of the same salts as above.


Replace that toxic table salt with a natural Himalayan salt grinder. Here is the one I use:
