Sea salt is increasingly recommended as superior to table salt in the kitchen and as a superior natural remedy for various ailments, internal and external. Why all the fuss? Is sea salt really that much more healthy for us to add to our meals? Does it offer genuine natural cures?
It's not easy to point to absolute superiority of sea salt over table salt, but the process of harvesting sea salt (evaporation) is certainly more natural than that for table salt (mining, chemical treatments). Trace minerals are also available from sea salt that you don't get from your typical salt shaker.
Natural Cures: For external use, Dead Sea Salts are the most famous as skin exfoliants and revitalizers. However, any sea salt scrub can help restore the skin's luster. A salt bath is also wonderful for relieving aching joints. A little sea salt added to a neti pot is perfect for clearing out the nasal cavity and sinuses.

[YEA] I suffered everyday with acid creeping up and severely hindering my ability to enjoy things in life. I noticed two huge agitators: 1. Over-eating (easy to do for anyone in U.S.) 2. Chocolate (tends to be a great laxative, but also tends to promote the acid problem. Continually the damage done by Acid Reflux caused burning and I found that taking in a good amount of sea salt (with water, foods) cleared it up.
I just tested my 1/4 tsp of sea salt in 32 oz of water and it is not alkalizing at all, it's around a 5 on my ph paper. my water from my fridge filter must be acidic. I thought adding the sea salt would alkalize it but it's an acidic formula. I then tested my whole lemon w/1/4 tsp of baking soda and it was very alkaline around 7.5 so i drank that down. I drink water w/sea salt daily and since I broke my arm 3 months ago it makes me swell. what can I add to the water mixture of sea salt and ? to make it alkaline? I also use the borax solution about every other day in my sea salt water. Can I take my lemon mixture and then have my peroxide mix of 3-4 drops in my 32 oz of water that I take to work to drink then I simply drink another 32 oz of plain water?
