A Few Simple Calculations to Assure You are Getting Enough Water/Salt Each Day

To better determine how much water you need each day, divide your body weight in half. The answer is the approximate number of water ounces you should drink daily. You should drink half of your body weight in ounces.

How Much Salt and How Do I Use It?

Maintain the Proper pH Level for Your Body by Balancing Your Salt/Water Intake

¼ tsp. per quart of water (4 cups) you drink daily. You can put the ¼ tsp. of sea salt in your water, or season your food with it, as it is suggested, or lick some off the palm of your hand, and then drink some water.

What is important is that you get the proper balance throughout the day. You can't take all your salt in just two times a day, no more than you could do all your breathing in only two times a day. You cannot drink half of your water in one sitting and then the rest later that day and expect to be fully hydrated.

What is a Good Sea Salt?

It is Important to be Sure You Are Getting the Right Kind of Salt

Good quality of sea salt contains more than 80 trace minerals. Be careful when buying sea salt or Celtic Sea Salt. If it does not list minerals on the back, the odds are that you have just bought expensive, prettier packaged table salt. All salt came from the sea at one point. So it is legal for anyone to label their low grade salt as sea salt. Good Celtic Sea Salt is NOT white or dry.

Unrefined sea salt is what you should look for. It contains 98.0 % NaCl (sodium-chloride) and up to 2.0% other minerals (salts):

  • Epsom salts and other Magnesium salts
  • Calcium salts
  • Potassium (Kalium) salts
  • Manganese salts
  • Phosphorus salts
  • Iodine salts

Altogether, salt contains over 100 minerals composed of 80 chemical elements. The composition of crystals of ocean salt is so complicated that no laboratory in the world can produce it from its basic 80 chemical elements — nature is still a better chemist than people.

This salt has been used since beginning of life, by ocean plants, by animals and by human beings.

Avoid Refined salt (Table Salt), which is 99.9% NaCl (sodium-chloride). It almost always contains additives, like 0.01% of potassium-iodide (added to the salt to avoid iodine deficiency disease of thyroid gland), sugar (added to stabilize iodine, and as an anti-caking chemical), aluminum silicate.
