Himalayan Salt and Acid Reflux

We know that a tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water can help acid reflux, but why wouldn’t Himalayan salt do the same?

Fact is everyone is different because of biological diversity. Some people suffer from acid reflux for different reasons than others people. However, Himalayan salt may be what you’re looking for. For one thing this ancient sea salt contains a complete spectrum of trace minerals and is a great alkalizer.

Second you may actually need these minerals to help replenish your liver to help produce bile salts for better digestion and stomach acid balance.

Thirdly there are some doctors who agree ancient sea salts like Himalayan salt help flush out the kidneys, which is the opposite effect chemical table salt has. If you suffer from acid reflux, himalayan salt, or acid indigestion you may also be in dire need of detoxification.

Get a few doctors opinions first, especially if you suffer from high blood pressure. Himalayan salt and Celtic sea salt have been shown to help regulate normal blood pressure.

So there’s a good reason to believe Himalayan salt may be something that could help you.

However, like I said, everyone is different.

In case you are interested you can make a Himalayan saline solution for your acid reflux symptoms ?by simple adding the Himalayan salt crystals to a mason jar of water kept in the fridge.

Simply keep adding salt everyday for a day or two until the Himalayan salt crystals stop dissolving.

Now you can keep this saline solution indefinitely. I prefer mine kept cold, but this is not necessary.

So now you’re ready to see if will help your acid reflux, acid indigestion or heart burn. All you do is take about a teaspoon of this Himalayan salt solution a day for a few days and see what happens.

Chances are it will help you in many ways, including helping relieve your acid reflux.

Keep in mind that acid reflux is more often caused from a lack of gastric acid, than an over abundance of it. In the later case, should you suffer from too much gastric acid it should help alkalize your blood, invigorate digestion and detoxify your kidneys, when done this way.

Whereas in the case where you actually suffer from a lack of stomach acid, the Himalayan salt solution will provide the necessary trace minerals to assists your body in producing a balanced supply of gastric acids to increase the digestive power of your gut, therefore reducing acid reflux.

Two times Nobel laureate Linus Pauling strongly believed mineral deficiencies are the root cause of almost every degenerative disease known to man.

Sea water contains at least 66 elements that can provide a rich source of minerals to help stop acid reflux, and perhaps even cure it. Himalayan salt is one of the purest and richest forms of crystallized ancient sea water. If you are looking for purity, Himalayan salt is unmatched.

Here is a list of 8 acid-dependant minerals that are best absorbed in their ionic form. That’s why if you do suffer from acid reflux because of lack of minerals these are important. The problem is you need stomach acid to even absorb them.

1.?????? Chromium (Cr)

2.?????? Copper (Cu)

3.?????? Iron (Fe)

4.?????? Magnesium (Mg)

5.?????? Manganese (Mn)

6.?????? Molybdenum (Mo)

7.?????? Selenium (Se)

8.?????? Zinc (Zn)

Himalayan salt contains ionically charged minerals that make absorption easier, even if you have very little stomach acid. The trace minerals in Himalayan crystal salt are fully water soluble.

These ionic minerals have the correct synergistic blend and smaller molecular structure to be fully absorbed by the cells of the body, regardless of how much stomach acid you have.

This is another reason why taking a teaspoon a day for a few days every month is so important. Healing takes time, so be patient in either case.

You were born to heal,

I have had acid reflux for 20 years. I recently stopping proton pump inhibitors since finding out how dangerous they are. I would like to try himalayan salts for this. I also have a hiatal hernia and irritable bowel syndrome. I have tried an apple and it just made more acid so I don’t think I have too little acid. So, my question is: will himalayan salt work for my acid reflux if my problem is not having too little acid?

Hi Todd,

I came upon your website and I was very excited. I am currently suffering from chronic acid reflux and cannot eat any food, except apple which still feels stuck on my chest. They cannot find the cause of the acid reflux and and I have all sorts of tests done. I have had to quit my doctoral program, and I have steadily gotten worse. I am unable to use any of the typical remedies because they all cause me to feel worse and give me great bone pain. My doctor thinks I am not going to make it if this contines, because I am getting very little nutrition and no sleep. I am going to order your information. I had already found out about the benefits of himalayan salt for acid reflux.However, I tried it (also tried ionic tonic) but it caused my face to swell up and my bones to ache like crazy. It did, however, help with my acid reflux, almost immediately. However, I have very small bones, especially in my ankles and elbows, and that’s where the pain is greatest. I thought that the salt was supposed to add nutrients, not take them away. Do you think the salt is depleting my body of minerals and that’s why I have the bone pain. Please help! I am so depressed and don’t want to die. I was very healthy before this, with no health problems and never even had acid reflux before. What do you think caused it…my doctors are baffled.

God Bless you.

Jessie
