Water, water everywhere: how much, how often?
Your body is 90% water.
About 91% gets sweated out during hot yoga.
Do I exaggerate? Not by much
Look down at that puddle on your mat and see if you can't splash around in it. Or try lifting that saturated towel and tell me that doesn't feel like it weighs 10 pounds (about 3lbs is accurate).
The time to hydrate is before you sweat. The rule of thumb is that you need half your body weight in ounces of clean, distilled, spring water daily.
And that's for people who DONT do hot yoga. So - you guessed it - you need more.
Coconut water is awesome. It helps your body absorb the water you drink.
But it aint water. There is simply no replacement for water. Not tea. Not seltzer. If its not water, its not water. And water is what you need.
How about those sports drinks?
Dump those down the drain, please. Dont let us see you take them into class. Rule of other thumb: if it's got color, its got sugar. Sugar is your enemy in hot yoga (and just about everywhere else)
You need to replace water AND minerals and electrolytes
You need: SOLE (pronounced So-Lay)
SOLE: a misture of water and crystal salt, called “sole” (so-lay), is the primordial soup of life, and the most flexible physical representation of pure solar and light energy.
SOLE replaces the 84 minerals your body loses through sweat.
So-easy: SOLE (pronounced So-Lay). You make it yourself. You add it to your water. You're good to go.
The mixture of water and crystal salt, called “sole” (so-lay), is the primordial soup of life, and the most flexible physical representation of pure solar and light energy.
When water and this salt come together they create a fluid materialization of sunlight. Adding Himalayan Sea Salt changes water to totally new structure, a third dimension, a crystalline structure so profound that its vibration pattern lasts over 24 hours in our bodies.
The Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole (So-lay) solution supplies the body with the natural energy stored in the salt crystals and the body can hold this energy for up to 24 hours. Using the Sole you can:
can harmonize the alkaline/acidity
balance in the body and normalize blood pressure
can dissolve and eliminate sediments which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism like arthritis and kidney and gall bladder stones
can lower the craving for addictive desires
can help with skin diseases by cleaning from inside out
Balance pH and Get Rid of Heavy Metals
The sole is an excellent product for balancing the pH factor of your body.
With the sole, one can also get rid of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, amalgam and calcium because the crystal salt is able to break up their molecular structures. Treat your body to a sole therapy in order to get rid of the calcium build up and the heavy metal deposits.
When to use SOLE:
Every morning, take one teaspoon of sole mixed in a glass of good quality artesian or spring water. Drink this on an empty stomach.
The amount of water is up to you, but you only need one teaspoon of sole for your daily intake. Within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines are being stimulated, for digestion and metabolism, even circulation. The salt allows the current to flow once again.
- Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole is, super- saturated, salty water. Here’s how to make it.
- Place 25mm of Himalayan Crystal Salt stones in a glass jar, one with a lid
- Add 50-75mm of good quality artesian or spring water above the stones, completely covering the crystals with water.
- Let sit overnight.
- If all the salt crystals have dissolved, add a few more salt crystals to the water.
- Your Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole is ready when the water becomes fully saturated with salt and cannot hold any more. The salt will no longer dissolve at this stage. There should be salt crystals in the jar.
- As you use up the Sole, after some time, add more water and more salt until the water is again saturated. Remember, there should always be undissolved salt crystals on the bottom of the jar. This is your visual proof that the water is totally saturated with salt.
Each morning, before eating or drinking anything, add one teaspoon of the Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole to a glass of artesian or spring water and drink. Your body will receive the energetic vibration pattern of the Himalayan Crystal Salt and hold it for 24 hours. Keep the container covered to prevent the water from evaporating. Otherwise, no special storage is needed. The fully saturated Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole will keep forever! Salt is a natural anti-bacterial and natural fungicide. It simply cannot spoil or go bad.
