Living water and natural salt are foods, not medicines. Due to their special properties, they give us energy and have a balancing, neutralizing and detoxifying effect on our bodies. There is no better natural means than these to stimulate the body's own regenerative capacity and restore our equilibrium. Thus, water and natural crystal salt have a positive effect throughout the body. With the help of the sole drink you have the opportunity to become or stay healthy, to rediscover your physical and emotional equilibrium (inner harmony) and to boost your energy levels. The therapeutic approach used by conventional medicine differs somewhat. The emphasis is on treating the symptoms instead of rooting out and eliminating the cause of the problem. When medications are taken, however, the body becomes trapped in a state of imbalance and loses its ability to swing back into its "center" of its own accord. 

However, caution must be exercised: if you take medicines regularly, you must seek medical advice before stopping them because despite having side-effects (which are often fatal) your body has become used to the medicines. Ask a doctor of your choice for advice, a doctor who is open to natural and holistic healing methods; one who will help you cut down on medicines and eventually do without them altogether through living healthily and eating naturally. 

Of course this is less convenient than swallowing a pill, but this is your only real chance of getting well and staying healthy - which should be your goal.

Law of Physics: Salt crystals dissolve in water until a saturated 26-percent sole is formed.  The concentrated sole is the starting point for many of the applications described within.

       Directions
(1)
  Put several salt crystals into a sealable, clean glass container.

(2) Top up with sufficient water to cover the crystals well.

(3) Use good quality, low mineral content water.

(4) Seal the container in order to prevent any contamination.

(5) The crystals will dissolve in about 2 hours, saturated at 26 percent and ready to use.

(6) The warmer the water, the more rapidly the salt crystals dissolve.

(7) For a sole drink, take up to a teaspoon of concentrated sole from the container, add to a glass of water and stir vigourously.

(8)
When the sole runs low, simply add  more water

(9) Make sure that at least one crystal is always visible in your sole concentration. This is your guarantee that the sole is saturated.

(10) A saturated sole will keep indefinitely.  Neither bacteria, nor viruses nor fungi are able to multiply in it.

Warning: Sufferers of renal insufficiency or salt-sensitive hypertension must exercise caution. Use only a drop or two of sole at a time, if at all. 

Take a maximum of one teaspoon of your prepared saturated crystal salt sole 

The quality of the crystal salt is more important than the quantity or frequency of this application.  Always use Natural Home Cures Crystal Salt 

Initial adverse effects let you know that the sole is working to detoxify the organism. If you experience adverse effects, reduce the concentration of the sole and with low mineral content water or suspend the regimen.

       Directions
(1)  Put the solution in a large glass and fill with 8 oz. of good quality water 

(2) Drink the diluted solution every morning on an empty stomach or take a spoonful of the undiluted sole and then wash it down with a large glass of water 

(3) The sole drink can be distributed over the whole day: add a teaspoon of sole to two pints of water and drink at intervals throughout the day 

(4) For children reduce the dosage according to body weight. A few drops of the sole is sufficient for infants 

Examples Of Use
Exhaustion, Stress, Digestion, Metabolic Support, Kidney, Bladder Health, Circulatory System Support, Cleansing and Detoxifying, Nervousness, Lack of Concentration, and Musculoskeletal Support 

Activation of the body's self-healing powers 'Skin nourishment and support'

Sole Inhalation
Not recommended for sufferers of acute asthma. Consult a doctor before discontinuing any prescribed medication for asthma. 

If you suffer from bronchitis, drink plenty of water in order to loosen the mucus and make it easier to cough up. 

lf you have a chronic sinus infection, you should carry out nasal rinses over the whole year as they help regeneration of the mucous membranes and protect against recurring infection. 

      Directions
(1) Heat two pints of water in a wide pot or pan until it starts to give off steam

(2) Using kitchen scales, measure out one third of an ounce of granulated crystal salt and add to the water. Stir until the salt has dissolved. 

1-percent solution = 1/3 oz. per 2 pints water

2-percent solution = 2/3 oz. per 2 pints of water

3-percent solution = 1 oz. per 2 pints of water 

Always start the treatment with a 1-percent solution and work your way up to a 3% solution. 

(3) Cover your head with a large towel and bend over the bowl 

(4) Inhale the steam for 10 to 15 minutes, preferably through your nose 

(5) Inhalation can be repeated several times a day

Examples Of Use
Respiratory Health, Lung Support, Healthy Sinus, Seasonal Health 
 

Sole Nasal Rinse
Warning: The nasal rinser or the dropper bottle should be sterilized for 5 to 10 minutes before every use. 

Apply the rinse to each side of the nose twice a day with 100 ml (3.4 fluid ounces) of 1-percent solution 

Please dose exactly 2 grams (112 tsp.) to 200 ml (62 fluid oz) of solution.   

A one percent sole solution matches to the concentration of salt in our tears and so does not cause a burning sensation.  

      Directions
(1)
Obtain a glass nasal rinser from a pharmacy 

(2) Fill a measuring cup with exactly 200 ml (6.8 fluid ounces) of lukewarm water 

(3) Add 2 grams (1/2 tsp.) of granulated crystal salt (2 capfuls of the measuring spoon) and stir until the salt has dissolved 

(4) Fill the nasal rinser with 100 ml (3.4 fluid ounces) of solution for each nostril 

(5) Bend your head over the sink and place the beak of the douche at the end of one nostril 

(6) You may keep your mouth open or closed during the rinse 

(7) Tip your head slightly forwards and to one side (away from the side with the nasal rinser) 

(8) By lifting your index finger the sole flows into one nostril and at the same time out of the other.

(9) Repeat the process with the other nostril, giving the sole time to work - do not wipe your nose straight away. You can repeat this several times daily 

(10) If you have a very dry nose, drops of a 1-percent sole should be applied at regular intervals on the mucous membranes using a dropper bottle. 

Examples Of Use
Clear Healthy Sinuses; Respiratory Health and Environmental Defence.
 

Regular eye baths carried out over a long period of time can improve vision defects associated with aging.

Carry out an eye wash every morning and every evening before going to sleep. We recommend additional washes during the day if you are not wearing make-up. 

Please ensure that you measure accurately, so that you get exactly 1 gram (1/4 tsp.) in 100 ml
(3.4 fluid oz.) of water: this one percent ratio matches the concentration of salt in our tears and so it does not cause burning in the eye. 

      Directions
(1) Obtain a glass eye cup from a local retailer

(2) Fill a measuring cup with exactly 100 ml (3.4 fluid ounces) of lukewarm water

(3) Add 1 gram using a measuring spoon of granulated crystal salt to the water, stir until salt is dissolved 
 
(4) Remove any make-up from eyelashes and eyelids thoroughly 

(5) Pour the sole solution into the eye cup 

(6) Tip your head forwards and hold the cup against your eye such that no water can escape
 
(7) Tip your head backwards so that the sole solution is covering your eye 

(8) Blink several times in order to spread the solution over the eye 
 
(9) Keep the eye open and let it circle for several minutes 

(10) Repeat the process with the other eye

Examples Of Use
Dry eyes, Eyestrain (computer work), Environmental defence, Age-related vision concerns, Eye cleansing

Mouth and Throat Rinse
Sole can also help keep teeth clean by dissolving plaque and tartar. simply dip your toothbrush in concentrated sole and brush your teeth. If you have open sores in the mouth area, reduce the concentration of the sole

      Directions
(1) Mix one to two parts water and one  part 26-percent saturated sole

(2) Taking a sip at a time, press the solution through your teeth or gargle with it 

(3) Rinse the mouth with the solution for a minute, then spit out and repeat three or four times.

(4) Carry out several times daily, preferably after meal times.

Full Sole Baths (Use The NHC Salt Brick)

A sole bath should have a concentration of at least one percent salt 

(1) For a standard bathtub (holding capacity about 25 gallons), you need 1 kg (2.2 pounds) of salt. With a larger tub, use proportionately more salt.  A salt brick can be used and kept in the bath water until the desired strength is reached.

(2) When the salt has dissolved, fill the tub full, using a thermometer to ensure a temperature of 98.6F and do not use any other bath products in conjunction with the sole 

(3) Take a sole bath once or twice a week, for no less than 20 minutes at a time. 

(4) Do not shower off after the bath. Pat yourself dry, do not rub 

Examples Of Use: Stress, Exhaustion, Detoxification, Excess Acidity, Activation of Self-Healing Powers, Skin Clarity, Dry or Oily Skin, Burn-Out Syndrome, Natural Defences and for Enjoyment 
 

Partial Sole Baths (Use The NHC Salt Brick)
Warning: Do not use a concentration over one percent on open sores.   If you have circulatory problems, sole baths should only be taken under supervision. Great caution should be exercised in cases of serious vein disorders.

If you suffer from open sores, do not use a concentration above 2 to 3 percent.

Prepare a 3 - 10 percent sole solution depending on the treatment to be applied 

Partial baths with concentrations of 10 percent and over may be re-used several times. A slightly heaped dessert spoon corresponds to about 1 ounce of salt.
