The Healing Power of Sea Salt and Bicarbonate Soda in Drinking Water: Insights from Doctor Hazel R. Parcels and Scriptural Passages

Water is one of the essential elements required for human survival. We need it to stay hydrated, flush out toxins from our body, and keep our organs functioning correctly. However, not all water is created equal. The quality of the water we drink can significantly impact our overall health and well-being. Adding sea salt and bicarbonate soda to our drinking water is a simple and effective way to improve its quality and, subsequently, our health. Doctor Hazel R. Parcels, a renowned health practitioner, has extensively researched the benefits of this combination, and her findings are worth exploring.

Benefits of Adding Sea Salt and Bicarbonate Soda to Water

Balances pH Levels
The human body’s pH level is essential to maintaining overall health. A pH level that is too acidic or alkaline can lead to several health problems. Sea salt and bicarbonate soda have alkalizing properties that can help balance the pH levels in our body. This balance is crucial for maintaining healthy organ function and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.
Helps with Digestion
Poor digestion is a common problem that many people face. It can lead to several issues such as bloating, constipation, and even weight gain. Adding sea salt and bicarbonate soda to water can help improve digestion by stimulating the production of digestive enzymes. This increased production can help break down food more efficiently, allowing for better nutrient absorption and improved overall digestive health.

Detoxifies the Body
Our body is exposed to several toxins daily, from the air we breathe to the food we eat. These toxins can accumulate in our body and lead to several health problems. Sea salt and bicarbonate soda can help detoxify our body by flushing out these toxins. The combination helps alkalize our body and supports the liver’s natural detoxification process, leading to better overall health.
Enhances Mental Clarity and Focus
Doctor Hazel R. Parcels found that adding sea salt and bicarbonate soda to water can help remove radiation from our body. This removal leads to increased mental clarity and focus, allowing us to think and perform better. It is worth noting that while there is radiation in our food, the levels are generally low and not harmful to human health.
Scriptural Passages about Salt and Bread
Salt and bread have been significant elements in human history and culture. Many scriptural passages mention the significance of these elements in religious practices and rituals. Here are some examples:

Gospel reading Matthew 11: 2 – 11

In the Gospel for the previous Sunday (Matthew 3:1-12), we heard the stirring words of John the Baptist at the Jordan River concerning the one who is to come.
The Messiah, he said, will baptize with the Holy Spirit and with fire, and he will exercise judgment. In the fashion of a swashbuckler, his coming will be dramatic, to say the least.

But Jesus does not really fit the mold. He comes on the scene as one who proclaims the kingdom of God, calls upon people to trust in God, heals the sick, and befriends tax collectors and persons labeled “sinners.” It is little wonder that John, now sitting in prison with time to think, questions whether Jesus is the one to come or not. Jesus fits neither John`s expectations nor those of Jewish messianism in general. John’s question in 11:3 is therefore totally understandable: “Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?”

The question of John and the response of Jesus in 11:2-6 are actually relayed by disciples of John the Baptist. (That John had disciples is attested not only here and in its parallel at Luke 7:18-23, but also in John 1:35; 3:25.) John is now not certain whether Jesus is the “coming one,” an expression which refers to the Messiah as the one to come (Matthew 21:9, Mark 11:9, Luke 19:38, John 12:13, Heb 10:37), based on Old Testament imagery (Psalm 118:26).
