Salt has a long and interesting history. The word salary, origin Latin salarium, is derived from salt because it was used as a form of trade and currency. “Not worth his salt” comes from the idea that Greek slave traders used salt to barter for slaves. Ethiopians still use salt as money among the nomads. Via Salaria, Italy, was one of the many salt roads used in the Bronze Age.
Salt is derived from sea water or mined from underground caves. There are mines all across the Eastern and Southwestern parts of America, Canada, and Europe. Beautiful statues and chandelier walkways are carved out of Scandinavian mines. Celtic salt is known for its unadulterated essential minerals with no additives, whereas refined salts contain harmful additives and chemicals.
The whole body is balanced by Celtic salt; some of the benefits are balancing blood sugar for diabetes, increasing energy, building immunity, helping restful sleep, improving brain function, etc. Other non-adulterated salts can do the same and will be discussed in further blog posts.
