Discovery of the Himalayan Salt
Alexander the Great discovered Himalayan crystal salt at the foothills of the Himalayas. In 326 BC, at age 30, Alexander the Great was at the height of his powers, intellectually, physically and militarily. He had marched more than 11,000 miles; had conquered Persia, Syria and Egypt; had pushed through the Caspian Gates to range southward and eastward while subduing every province in his path. As he advanced, he had left in his wake various rulers pledging him allegiance, part of his grand scheme for a world-wide Grecian hegemony.
The Battle of the Hydaspes River was a battle fought he fought that year against the Indian King Porus on the Hydaspes River (now the Jhelum) in Punjab. The Kingdom of King Porus was situated in that part of ancient India which is now known as Pakistan. The battle was the last major war fought by Alexander. Although victorious, Alexander’s exhausted army mutinied and then refused to go any further into India.
Some of the injured soldiers along with their horses took refuge in caves at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Here they noticed that the horses were licking the rocks. But after further investigation, the soldiers discovered that the horses were actually licking crystallized salt. Soldiers also notice that wounded animals were healed much faster in the salt mines. Since then, the locals have been using Himalayan Crystal Salt not only for their daily consumption, but also for their horses and cattle as well.
Herds of elephants risk injury and death in a perilous journey to hidden salt caves where they supplement their sodium deficient diets. Our pets also suffer from sodium deficiency. Farmers place salt blocks in their pastures so that their livestock can lick the salt to their heart’s content.

In the production of common table salt, all of the other beneficial elements are chemically removed. Major salt producing companies dry their salt in huge kilns with temperatures reaching 1,200 degrees F, which changes the salt’s chemical structure, which in turn adversely affects human and animal bodies. Avoid common refined table salt. Domesticated animals need the proper and pure salt.
