Salt Bath Benefits
In this health video you will learn about the salt bath benefits.
Lee Swanson: Hi, I’m Lee Swanson, president of Swanson Health Products. It’s my
pleasure today to be speaking with Dr. Barbara Hendel, author of the best
selling book Water and Salt: The Essence of Life and the Healing Power
of Nature. Barbara, you have a thriving medical practice in Germany.
Could you tell our viewers briefly about some of the personal experiences
your patients have had using the Himalayan salt?
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes. Nearly every patient in my clinic has to use this salt because it’s not
only healthy, it also tastes good. But, I will tell you about some examples.
For example, there was a 40-year-old lady who has 6 children, and, you
can imagine in the evening, she was groggy and let down…
Lee Swanson: Tired.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Tired and she always went to bed at 9:00 and her husband was very
[worried] about that. [Then] she tried this 1% solution salt bath…
Lee Swanson: Himalayan salt bath.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Himalayan salt bath, yes. And she would lie there for… 30 minutes. And
when she comes out, she is a new woman. She has so much energy and
her skin was beautiful afterwards.
Lee Swanson: You know, I can tell you a story. I enjoy taking a Himalayan salt bath in
the evening and if I’m in the bath for a half-hour, I get out and I feel so
energized, but I still sleep like a baby afterwards.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes, that’s it.
Lee Swanson: I’m energized, but also very relaxed.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes. You [are relaxed but you also have energy], this is not contradicting.
. She’s really happy with this salt, and she bought a big package of this
salt because she uses it nearly every day. Her husband uses it too.
Lee Swanson: That’s great. With 6 children, she needs a little relaxing…
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes. She needs a lot. And by the way, this salt is very good when you feel
you’re getting a cold. You take this bath in the evening and afterwards,
you go to bed, then in the morning, when you wake up it will be gone.
Lee Swanson: Now, what, what temperature do you recommend for the bath? About the
same temperature as the body is?
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes. It must be the same temperature— 98 Fahrenheit—
Lee Swanson: 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes. In Celsius, it’s 37. [At that temperature], the body can change. We
can lose the toxic substances and take the minerals in from the salt water.
Lee Swanson: So the saltwater bath does two things. It draws toxins out of the body…
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes.
Lee Swanson: But the natural minerals in the salt –
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Go in the body.
Lee Swanson: Are absorbed through the skin of the body. It’s a wonderful, wonderful
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes and your skin gets nice. Don’t take a shower when you go out of this
bath. It’s very important that the salt has to remain on the skin. Only dry it
like that [lightly pats arm], and then it’s perfect.
Lee Swanson: This is interesting Barbara. I met you in Zurich, Switzerland about 4
months ago and you and I are the same age—
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes.
Lee Swanson: We’re 56 years old, but the first time I met you, I thought you were 32–33
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Oh, thank you, you’re so kind.
Lee Swanson: And I think it’s obvious because you have your diet, but a big part of that
is also the natural Himalayan salt.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Yes. I take it every day.
Lee Swanson: Oh, sure.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: And I created a skin care line too. And I use it, of course, but we can talk
about that later.
Lee Swanson: Well, you’re certainly the youngest 56-year-old-looking lady that I’ve ever
Dr. Barbara Hendel: Thank you.
Lee Swanson: I urge all of you to get a copy of Barbara’s book, and read for yourself her
natural health and beauty program. It’s Water and Salt: The Essence of
Life and the Healing Power of Nature by Dr. Barbara Hendel. Thank you
very much for joining me today, Barbara.
Dr. Barbara Hendel: It was a pleasure.

It was at a bridal shower last year where I first was given a gift of bath salts as a party favor.

Dead Sea bath salt contains over 80 different minerals with one of the purest and highest levels of magnesium. Most people are magnesium deficient even though magnesium is the most important mineral for health and age reversal. We should get 380-500mg magnesium from food. Soil depletion has reduced this figure to 175-225 mg from our food - if we're lucky. That's half the daily requirement....
