Sole Water and Salt A higher form of Energy

Water and Salt – Sole – a higher form of Energy

All salt is not the same!

Sole - Water and saltTo read about the difference in my previous posts:

Is any Salt good for us?

Salt versus Himalayan Salt


‘It seems hard to believe that Water, Salt and Sunlight produce the building blocks for protein which are identical with the amino acids in our bodies.

That is one of the most important meaning of Sole: the Origin of all Life

Sol in Russian means salt and in Latin means Sun Sole = liquid sunlight, life force which is stored in water and salt.’ (p.40 G. Zimmermann)

“The blend of water and salt, the so-called sole, is the “mother soup” of all life forms and a flexible, physical representation of pure sun and light energy.” (p 145, Dr. Barbara Hendel and Peter Ferreira)

Health Benefits of Sole

“Biochemically, the stomach and intestinal activity(peristaltic) is stimulated within minutes, which in return stimulates your metabolism and digestion.

Electrolytes are created which improve the body’s conductivity and stimulate the circulation. Salt allows the current to flow.”

“Sole has a Balancing Effect

Contrary to common salt, sole is not “off limits” for those with high blood pressure. In fact, sole lowers the blood pressure within 15 minutes. …. those with low blood pressure can also drink sole and their blood pressure will rise.

The sole’s fundamental attribute is its ability to restore balance.

In the U.S., the results of a four year study showed that people with poor salt concentration in their urine were 4 times more likely to suffer from heart attacks than those with normal salt concentration in their urine. (p 155, Dr. Barbara Hendel and Peter Ferreira)

“Initial Aggravation of the Symptoms during the Cleanse

The effects of crystal salt on the body are opposite to the effects of medication. Medications suppress symptoms, while the salt absolutely supports the expression of the symptoms. Plus, it energizes those symptoms that might still be latent in your body and lets you experience them fully. This process often times results in an initial aggravation of the symptoms, as with homeopathy.

People with rheumatic illnesses such as gout, arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, having already developed deposits in their joints, should regularly drink sole to keep the body within the frequency pattern. This will result in the body slowly breaking down the deposits, metabolizing and releasing them.

The same therapy applies to kidney and gallbladder stones. The passing of the loosened, dissolved stones can be painful but the body will have managed the process on its own, without surgery.”(p 157)

Detoxification Effect of Sole

Cleansing Happens Rhythmically

The body will cleanse itself in rhythms, receiving the necessary energy from the sole for its regeneration.

This is oftentimes unpleasant for the patient. However, this is the only manner in which the body can loosen and release waste and pollutants that do not belong in the body.

Water and salt will do a major clean-up!

If too much fermented and rotten substances should accumulate in the intestines, the sole treatment can initially cause diarrhea. This is a positive sign that your intestines are being flushed out and cleansed.” (p157)

How to make Sole – the Salt Solution

Sole = 1 part of Himalayan salt + 2 part of spring water leave for 24 hours. Add more salt, so there always is some un-dissolved salt at the bottom of the jar to make sure that the solution has reached it’s saturation point.

Use 1 teaspoon with/or in 250 ml/1 cup of spring water on an empty stomach(preferably, but always at approx. the same time (24 hours apart).

You can reduce the amount to a few drops if the cleansing effect is too strong for you.

“For children and babies, a few drops of sole are sufficient. … Adding a couple of drops of sole to your child’s meal is adequate.” (p 164)

Salt versus Himalayan Salt

Sole - Water and saltIn the post ‘Salt is it all the same?”Is any Salt good for You?‘ I brought the attention to the pros and cons or Salt and what alternative can be used instead of the refined version (i.e. Himalayan Crystal Salt). The information was mostly from the book “Water and Salt” by Dr. Barbara Hendel and Peter Ferreira. 

The comments people made to the post where interesting information and also a few questions.

The Video by Dr. Mercola hopefully will clarify the questions regarding this ‘tasty’ issue.

He explains the history of salt and a lots lots more, i.e. how much salt we need.

Is any Salt good for Us?

Salt – Is it all the same?

Himalayan Water and Salt SoleA lot of people have eliminated salt from their diet for health reasons.

Dr.Med. Barbara Hendel and Peter Ferreira (Biophysicist) explain why we need salt and the best way of using the kind of salt that benefits our wellness in the Book “Water & Salt The Essence of Life.

We are told to cut down on salt and doctors tell us to avoid it.

Have you ever wondered why we crave salt. It is natural! Our blood contains salt, we need (natural) salt to survive; 0.007 ounces (0.196g) per day.

“How Table Salt Burdens the Body”

“While our body only requires the minute amount of O.007 ounces of salt per day, most of us suffer a lack of salt, even though we’re over-saturated with sodium chloride. When our consumption is less than 0.007 ounces per day, salt craving kicks in. The average, per capita, daily consumption of table salt in the U.S. is between 0.4 ounces and 0.7 ounces. However, our body is only able to excrete 0.17 ounces to 0.25 ounces a day through our kidneys, depending on our age, constitution and sex.” (Page 109)

Salt was called ‘white gold’ and this was an appropriate term when it was still in its natural unrefined form.

The natural crystal salt has, unknown to many, lots of benefits to the well being of the body.

Refined salt (Sodium Chloride – NaCl) has been

  • Stripped of minerals and trace elements
  • Treated with bleach
  • Contains chemicals like aluminium hydroxide, iodine and fluoride (which are in a form that is unable to be absorbed by the body) and many others added to it in the process of refining it.

“The consequences of Consuming Table Salt”

“The result of consuming common table salt is the formation of overly acidic edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. That’s why doctors tell us to avoid salt. For every 0035 ounces of sodium chloride that cannot be eliminated, the body uses 23 times(23x) the amount of its own cell water to neutralize the salt.

If the sodium chloride is still too high, re-crystallization of the table salt occurs as the body uses available non-degradable animal proteins (as those found in milk), which also have no value and cannot be broken down and eliminated. The body uses these proteins to produce uric acid in order to get rid of the excess salt.

As the body cannot dispose of uric acid, it binds itself with the sodium chloride to form new crystals that are deposited directly in the bones and joints.

This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatism such as arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones.” (Page 110)

Himalayan Crystal Salt

This Crystal Salt contains 84 minerals and trace elements in the same proportions as those found in blood plasma

In Water & Salt, Peter Ferreira lays out research which repeatedly demonstrates the benign but powerful nature of Himalayan Crystal Salt, and its significance in the treatment of numerous disorders; particularly respiratory ailments and skin diseases.

‘Sole’ is the form we can use to give our body the concentration of salt that is absorb-able.

The front cover of the book contains graphics of the segmentary diagnosis of the dysfunctions of the organs and the sympathetic nervous system before drinking any salt solutions.

After having been given one teaspoon of table salt “The graphic clearly shows how the existing dysfunctions of the organs and the nervous system further increase and how an energy deficit is created…” “Within one hour of drinking one teaspoon of table salt solution the subjects were given one teaspoon of original Himalayan crystal salt solution/sole. The diagnosis that resulted from this test not only clearly show the energy deficit is counterbalanced, but further, how the original dysfunctional states of the organs and the nervous system have begun to regain balance as well.” (Page 131/132)

There is so much interesting information in the book about Water and Salt.
