The Benefits of Sole Water

Friday, October 4th, 2019

The benefits of Sole water have been seen by many who have tried it. Most of us have heard about drinking lemon water to help detoxify our bodies, but have you heard about adding water to your water for health? Salt can be very beneficial to our health. Salt naturally contains minerals that are necessary for our bodies to function.

Sole water (pronounced so-lay), is not a miracle cure or hip new fad as it has been used for hundreds of years by our ancestors, it is a life-supporting mixture of mineral-rich, unrefined salt and water that supports the body’s natural ability to regulate and heal itself. The term Sole comes from the Latin “sol”, which means sun.
Make your Sole water with  Himalayan salt as it is considered to be the purest form of salt on earth.
Sole Water provides many benefits to the body 
There are many benefits that have been discovered by drinking sole water some of these include:
  • Keeping the body hydrated for longer by flooding it with necessary minerals.
  • Provides vitamins and minerals to the body which are quickly absorbed when combining salt and water.
  • Helps with sleep by relaxing the body.
  • Clearer skin as salt helps with detoxing the cells.
  • Helps digestion.

You can purchase Himalayan salt from most health food shops.

The video below explains in more detail as well as giving instructions on how to make the sole water.



How to Make Sole Water

Sole water is very easy to make and therefore something that you should add to your health regime.

  • Take a glass jar with a plastic or glass lid. (Not metal as it will corrode from the salt).
  • Fill the jar to 1/4th full with Himalayan salt.
  • Fill to about 1 inch below the top of the jar with filtered water.
  • Cover with lid and shake gently to mix.
  • Leave overnight on bench top for salt to dissolve.
  • In the morning, you will notice that the water will be fully saturated. If there is still some salt left then it is ready to use.
  • If there is no salt left then add some more and leave it to sit for more time.
  • Each morning, place one tablespoon of the sole water into a glass of filtered water (room temperature) then drink it.

Water is The Key to Health

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Water is the key to health! this is something I have been telling my family for as long as I remember. Being someone that doesn’t like taking any medication, I knew water was the key to health. I was determined to bring my children up understanding how their bodies worked. I wanted them to enjoy a healthy life without reaching for a pill every time something went off balance.

If any of then say they don’t feel well the first thing I say is, ” have a glass of water.” Nine out of ten times, their problem is cured with a long refreshing glass of the good stuff.

Hydration is so important, whenever we start to become dehydrated every part of our internal machinery starts to suffer, especially on a hot day when we are sweating out more fluids than we are replacing.

When you consider the fact that our bodies are made up of 50 to 75% depending on our age it becomes clear that if we are dehydrated our bodies will break down. A person can survive up to three weeks without food but only 3 days without water.

Main functions of water on our bodies

  • It keeps our organs functioning well.
  • It cushions our joints.
  • Flushes waste from our bodies.
  • aids in our digestion.
  • Regulates our metabolism and body temperature.

These factors make it so very important to drink lots of water and yet something that we all fail to think about in our day to day lives. So, next time you get a headache or pain in the stomach, think about how much fluid you have taken in within the last couple of hours and give your body what it needs. Constipation and headaches are two of the very first symptoms of dehydration along with a dry mouth.

Give your body the love it needs and keep it hydrated on a daily basis because water is the key to health.

10 Interesting Facts About Water

Friday, August 21st, 2015

There are many interesting facts about water, when you start looking at water as more than just a drink it is quite a fascinating thing to study.

  1. The human body is made up of 55% – 75% water.
  2. Although it is recommended for you to consume 8 cups of water each day, it is not necessary to drink all of this water. Almost every food or drink item will provide the body with some water.
  3. By the time a person feels thirsty he is already dehydrated. At this time his body has already lost over 1% of its total water amount.
  4. After exercising people often think they have lost weight, this is loss of water and not fat as sometimes believed.
  5. Caffeine is an ingredient in many soft drinks, tea and coffee so although the drink itself is made up mostly of water, the caffeine contained in the drinks prevent the water from travelling to where it is needed. This is because caffeine acts as a mild diuretic.
  6. The Earth contains about 326 million cubic miles of water.
  7. Pure water has no smell and no taste, it also has a pH level around 7.
  8. 20 gallons of water are needed to create one pint of beer.
  9. Water can dissolve more substances than any other liquid including sulfuric acid.

10 Signs you are dehydrated

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

10 signs of dehydrationThe human body is a pretty amazing machine with it’s own in built navigation system. If you learn to read the signs you can help to keep it in peak performance. The body is made up of approximately 70-percent water therefore,  fluids are vital for our body to function. Fluids are responsible for protecting our joints, maintaining organ function, transporting oxygen to cells, and sustaining body temperature. It also makes sense that the body can fairly quickly become dehydrated  due to excess perspiration,  sun exposure, hot weather  or lack of fluids throughout the day. Do you listen when your body is telling you something is wrong. Below you will find 10 signs that your body is dehydrated.

  • Increased thirst – When your body is telling you that you are thirsty, it would be wise to listen. This is usually one of the first signs you are dehydrated and need to top up on fluids. You wouldn’t drive your car with an empty radiator so don’t expect your body to continue without a regular top up.
  • Dry mouth and swollen tongue – A dry mouth is also one of the first signs you are dehydrated, the tongue feels sticky and you will find your lips sticking together. In severe cases the tongue may start to swell.
  • Weakness – Feeling weaker than usual and having trouble lifting or opening things that normally would not be a problem, could be another one of the signs you are dehydrated. Blood flow and blood pressure drop due to a lack of water and oxygen in the blood, as the body becomes starved of fluids in the joints, cells and organs you will start to lack energy and therefore become weaker.
  • Headaches – Headaches are caused again by the lack of oxygen in the blood. 90% of headaches are caused by dehydration or just the body saying that it needs fluids. So before you grab for the pain relief try drinking a couple of glasses of water first.
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness – This is caused as the blood pressure drops due to the fluids being depleted and the body trying to store what fluids it has in the organs.
  • Palpitations or increased heart rate (feeling that the heart is jumping or pounding)
  • Confusion – This is a follow on symptom from the dizziness, you may become confused and irritable as the blood pressure continues to plunge.
  • Consitpation – As fluid levels drop the intestine starts to extract fluids from the waste materials leaving them quite hard and dry which leads to constipation.
  • Dark coloured Urine – Dehydration is the most common cause for darkened urine. The kidneys start to store the water instead of releasing it causing the urine to darken in colour. Certain foods can cause urine colour to change but if you have darkened urine as well as any other of the symptoms then build up your fluids and see if it makes a difference. You may also notice a decrease in the frequency of urination as you become dehydrated.
  • Muscle cramps – Cramping in the muscles can be caused by dehydration and keeping up the fluids can usually alleviate the problem. While exercising, it is quite common to get an abdominal stitch but usually it is a sign that the fluids need topping up.

Dehydration results when the body loses more water than it takes in so it makes sense to listen to your body and keep it hydrated continually. There are many signs of dehydration but if you are uncertain then you should always seek medical advice where necessary.
