Healing Effects of Sole

If you have ever spent any time with me, you would know that I am a huge fan of a simple solution called Sole (pronounced Solay) Water. This magical water is made with Himalayan salt, it contains 84 of your body’s 92 essential minerals we need everyday to stay in balance. In order for your body to fully benefit from these minerals we take in from our food, the molecules must be very small. To make the minerals easier for our body to absorb we can make a solution of Sole Water.

Many experts tell us that our soils are depleted of essential minerals. All diseases of humanity can be attributed to the lack of minerals in our bodies. This slow degeneration of society and of humanity is directly related to the lack of minerals in our food.

“YOU CAN TRACE EVERY SICKNESS, EVERY DISEASE, AND EVERY AILMENT TO A MINERAL DEFICIENCY.” – DR. LINUS PAULING, TWO-TIME NOBEL PRIZE WINNER 

Regeneration is what we really need to thrive. Sole and juice together really create an amazing foundation for health and wellness!

Because Sole Water keeps us highly mineralized everything in our body works better, our cells communicate to each other more efficiently.  Himalayan mineral salt is a superconductor of ions that charge our body.

“In a nine-week study undertaken in 2003 at the Inter-University of Graz, Austria examined the effects of Himalayan Crystal Salt on physical and psychological functions of the body. It is the only salt ever to have been the subject of comprehensive double-blind scientific research. The results of the study, presented in the book, Water & Salt – The Essence of Life by Dr. Barbara Hendel, M.D. and biophysicist Peter Ferreira, confirmed significant positive changes in respiratory, circulatory, organ, connective tissue and nervous system functions. Patients also reported increases in quality of sleep, energy and concentration levels, brain activity, weight loss, enhanced consciousness, and noticeable hair and nail growth.”

Sole is a great way to start your day! One teaspoon in the morning on an empty stomach mixed in a glass of good quality artesian or spring water. Within minutes of taking this the whole stomach and intestines are being stimulated and absorbing the minerals. This in turn encourages healthy digestion and metabolism to get your day started off right!

How to prepare a Sole Solution:

Place enough Himalayan salt at the bottom of a mason jar or other glass container to cover the bottom inch of the jar. Make sure your jar has a lid so contaminants cannot get into your solution. After about 24 hours, look to see if the salt crystals have completely dissolved. If so, add a few more crystals. When the water can no longer dissolve any more salt the crystals will settle at the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At this point the solution becomes 26%, which is stable and ready for consumption. The isotopic parts in the upper part of the glass tend to be more bio-friendly and alkaline. In contrast, the enriched Sole in the lower part of the glass contains isotopes, which are less bio-friendly and tend to be more acidic. Therefore it is best if we only use the Sole at the top. This solution never expires or goes bad, so you can keep adding water and Himalayan salt to the solution as it starts to get lower in the jar.

Drink 1 teaspoon everyday in warm water.  Do not use a metal teaspoon, use bamboo, wood or plastic. The metal interferes with the minerals amazing benefits. If its hot our or you are sweating excessively, you can certainly take more to restore you electrolyte balance.

Notice the effects in your everyday life:

  • Consuming Sole helps the body re-hydrate.
  • The minerals in Sole make it useful in the natural detoxification that the body already does. Sole is naturally anti-bacterial and can help remove bad bacteria in the body.
  • The minerals and stored energy in Sole help boost energy throughout the day.
  • Sole stimulates the digestive system promoting food absorption and regularity naturally.
  • Some people note improvements in blood sugar levels after using Sole.
  • Sole can work as a powerful natural anti-histamine. This action is likely due to its balancing effects on the body, and I have noticed this personally.
  • There is a theory that a potential cause of Osteoporosis and other bone disorders is the body utilizing calcium and other minerals from the bones for survival and to neutralize acidity in the blood. Sole is naturally full of minerals and alkalizing, so there is speculation that it is helpful with bone health as well.
  • By supporting the correct mineral balance in the body and blood, Sole can help reduce or avoid vein problems like varicose veins.
  • Contrary to what we often hear, many people notice a reduction in blood pressure from using Sole.
  • By improving digestion and nourishing the body on a cellular level, Sole can help promote weight loss.
  • Sole’s high mineral content makes it great for healthy skin (and acne problems), and for hair and nail growth.

Activate your self healing powers with a sole bath! Its amazing! As you float in this sheer ocean of energy, your body and soul become harmonized, you senses are soothed and your muscles relax. Bioenergetic deficits are rebalanced and weak links become strengthened, reactivating our body’s electric current. The organs functions begin to resonate with the natural frequency patterns of sole solution. This activates the natural regulatory mechanism of the body and its self healing powers, begin releasing toxins, allowing your skin to now absorb the vital minerals, reducing acidity in your body and balancing your skin’s pH. You skin becomes hydrated, you are strengthened and energy is renewed.

Studies have shown that you can achieve the best results taking a sole bath during the change of the moon cycle. The minerals and energies stored in the sole can optimally be absorbed during a full moon. The body’s healing potential is at its peak, bioenergetically weak points are harmonized, and the body’s own energy flow is activated. During a new moon, the cleansing effects are optimized because the body’s capacity for detoxifying is at an optimum. The concentration of the sole bath can slowly be increased from 1% to 8%. The higher the concentration, the stronger the cleansing effect, and the more severe the body’s reaction. It has been my experience that some people have to work up to the thirty minute bath as well.

The cleansing effects of a 30-minute bath are equal to three days of fasting. This is because it increases the body’s circulation and because our skin is our biggest eliminative organ the toxins are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. You will feel amazing after this bath, let the minerals really soak in and DO NOT dry off after!

How to Prepare a Sole Bath ~ your own personal ocean in the tub:

You can find numerous bath salts on the shelves of many stores. Most of these have been chemically treated and therefore have lost their natural qualities. Ideally, for a salt bath treatment, try to find natural, untreated crystalized salt. Add 1-2 pound of salt to your bath tub and just enough water to cover it. After about 10 minutes the salt will dissolve and now you can fill your bathtub. Do not add any other bath products or essential oils.

The bath water should have. temperature of 98.6 degrees. This is important so that the body does not have to sacrifice its own energy to balance out the temperature. The bath water will remain at this temperature almost continuously. This is because the biophysical structure of the sole solution is so strong, it causes the molecules to move in constant rhythm. Sole baths have a positive effect on many ailments. They are, however, demanding on the circulatory system. Be aware of this if you suffer from weak or poor heart circulation, a foot bath may be more appropriate for you.

Symptoms of Detoxification and Helpful Remedies

Juice fasting is a way to rest and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. With that being said, when the body releases accumulated toxins and clears dead cells, it is sometimes uncomfortable as these toxins are flushed from our body. Here is a list of things that you can do to help the process along so that your concentration can improve, creative thinking will expand, depression will lift, and insomnia seems to stop, your anxiety will fade and peace and tranquility will come over your body.

Symptoms of Detoxification and Helpful Remedies

  • Headache. This is caused from dehydration and releasing of toxins. The solution to a headache is to drink water, give yourself an enema or have a colonic, go for a walk, take an infrared sauna, get a massage or jump on a rebounder. Use essential oils of eucalyptus, helichrysum, lavender, roman chamomile, peppermint and spearmint.
  • Light-headedness. This is also caused by dehydration and releasing of toxins. The solution to this is to drink water, drink licorice tea, add sole to your juice or water. Use essential oils of peppermint, cypress, basil, lavender, rose, rosemary or tangerine.
  • Fatigue. Caused by dehydration and releasing of toxins, it is best to drink water, rest and  take an additional enema or colonic. Use essential oils of cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, fir, ginger, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint and rosemary.
  • Nausea. Releasing of toxins can be very uncomfortable. If you are nausous apply peppermint oil to your tongue, chest and lower abdomen. Drink ginger tea and take a homeopathic remedy called nux vomica. Use essential oils of peppermint, wintergreen, spearmint, ginger, lemon, rosemary, lavender, and chamomile.
  • Leg Cramps and Heart Palpitations. This is caused by a mineral deficiency. Take more sole water, crystal or sea salt as well as a magnesium supplement. Use essential oils of eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, lime, orange, basil, marjoram, peppermint, geranium, helichrysum, lavender, melissa and roman chamomile.
  • Abdominal Cramps. This is due to a mineral deficiency, releasing of toxins and a vata imbalance. Apply a hot water bottle to the abdomen (you can use your enema bag), tke an infrared sauna, take a sesame oil retention enema, take a magnesium supplement. Use essential oils of, chamomile, calendula, clove and peppermint.
  • Cold or Flu Symptoms. Releasing toxins can make us feel like crap. Drink lots of water and ginger tea. Use essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, maleluca, juniper, wintergreen and clove.
  • Emotional Release. Caused by psycho-emotional detoxification it is very important to get enough vitamin D, sunbathing is the best way to do this but a supplement is also helpful. Lots of rest, journal, writing, write a letter of gratitude, connect with a friend, meditate, zero point, EFT. Use essential oils of hyssop, rosewood, frankincense, spruce, lavender, geranium, sandalwood, neroli, angelica, orange, rose, jasmine, bergamot, lemon, lemongrass, melissa, helichrysm, blue tansy.

Juice FastingCheck out these pages on juice fasting: 7 Day Fast, 5 Day Fast and 3 Day Fast.

It is wise to get moderate exercise and drink plenty of water while fasting. Remember to monitor your symptoms and if the symptoms of umbilical pain, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle contractions and gout pain do not go away, please see your juice fasting consultant, physician or nurse.

Fasting opens one up to the experience of Divine Pleasure and immerses you in the light of God which is the Truth of who you are.

Cherry Orange Soup

Flathead Cherries are sweet and heavenly!
Every year we pick and pit cherries when they are in season. I freeze them, I dry them, we eat them! We are so lucky to live in an area that supplies us with fresh sweet cherries every year!
This is a great soup to make just before a doing a juice cleanse, it is also a good soup to make during a whole food or a raw food cleanse.
Since, Saturday is the start of our 7-day juice fast, I decided to make Cherry Orange Soup!

Cherry Picking

This soup is like having dessert, its so delicious and the kids love it too!
  • Cherry Orange Soup
  • 1 pound sweet cherries, pitted (Flathead cherry’s are the best!)
  • ½ cup black cherry juice
  • ½ cup almond mylk
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel, top with orange slice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch cinnamon
  • Directions: Blend and Chill. Top with orange slice. It doesn’t get more simple than that!
Cherries are relatives of the plum, and sweet cherries are much more difficult to produce than sour cherries because, not uncommonly, a late spring frost can devastate a crop. Most cherries are produced in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. But here in the Northwest Montana we are blessed with the Flathead Cherry!
Woo Woo!
cherry picking
Sweet cherries are a warming food that increases vital energy and tone the spleen-pancreas, liver, and kidneys. Also astringent, they remove excess body acids and blood stagnation when eaten regularly, and are therefor therapeutic for gout, paralysis, numbness in the extremities, and rheumatic pain in the lower half of the body.
Sweet cherries reduce vata and kapha and can be used in moderation by pitta.
Cherries are an excellent source of iron and contain some phosphorus, potassium and calcium, as well as vitamin A.
