A little back story for you: after I had Grayson, I had some intense postpartum anxiety. Also because I was a tired mom, I went back to drinking coffee each morning. I started to notice that it made my anxiety so much worse after having that daily cup of joe. So I had to make a change! I still needed that extra little boost of energy because HELLO MOM LIFE and my sole water in the morning gives me that!
Sole water is a drink made from filtered water and pink Himalayan sea salt with tons of benefits! It is known to aid in sleep, digestion and energy levels.
Our bodies are missing lots of minerals because our daily diets don’t provide those minerals. Think of what Himalayan sea salt is: MINERALS! It actually includes 84 necessary minerals that were missing on a regular basis! We can get the minerals we need right in our kitchen from a super simple drink.
Salt isn’t the as bad as it’s made to be, especially if you’re consuming it in the correct way and in the correct amounts. Table salt and Himalayan sea salt are totally different. Table salt is missing all those necessary minerals and specifically table salt is what they mean when they say “salt is bad for you”.
Sole water is simply salt and water. All you need is a bag of high quality Himalayan sea salt (can buy here on amazon), filtered water and a glass jar you can close or cover.
How to Make Solé Water
It’s super easy to make!
Pour your glass jar 1/4 full of pink Himalayan sea salt.
Fill it the rest of the way with filtered water.
Cover it up. Shake it up, turn it around, then put the jar on your counter covered. Overnight (usually takes 12-24 hrs) the water will absorb as much salt as physically possible.
When you’re ready to drink it, just pour yourself a glass of water and then take one spoonful of the salt water into your water, mix, and drink. (Note: do not shake the extra salt at the bottom up. It’ll make your sole water extra salty, which you don’t need.)
When to Drink It
I drink mine first thing in the morning on an empty stomach for quickest absorption. I usually try to wait 15-30 min before eating. Start with one tbsp and then some people work their way up to 2-3 tbsp. I usually do only 2 tbsp and I’ve been doing this for almost a year. Everyone’s body is different, so just take as little or as much up to 3 tbsp as you need and feel benefits for!
“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.”
