The Healing Properties
of Soap Lake Waters
Why does Soap Lake water heal? The reasons
are quite simple. The minerals in the water make it very
alkaline. Bacteria and viruses must live within their own
range of acid-base environment to survive.
Bactericides all work to change the
environment such as alkalinity, acidity, hot and cold. Most
bactericides have the drawback of also harming their host,
in this case, the person it is acting upon. Soap Lake water
is perfect because in most cases, it does not harm the host.
It also sets up an abnormal environment that kills many
bacteria and virus.
No tissue can heal without mineralization.
One can examine any scar tissue under a microscope and find
that there are massive amounts of minerals left after the
healing has taken place.
Soap Lake water definitely opens capillary or
surface and extremity circulation. Over the years this has
been proven in cases of Buergers and Raynauds disease, which
are extremity problems.
To keep the alkalinity and minerals in the
afflicted area long enough for results to be obtained, some
people use the mud from the lake bottom. This will vary with
individual needs and time required.
Mud baths: Apply mud over the area to be
treated and lay in the sun to dry. The mud absorbs moisture,
oils and toxins for the skin area. After the mud dries,
rinse off with fresh water if you will be sunbathing. The
combination of minerals and ultra-violet rays causes rapid
tanning and may cause you to burn more quickly.
Soap Lake water used in conjunction with the
sun has been known to alleviate the symptoms of psoriasis.
Use caution not to sunburn.
Over-usage of Soap Lake water can cause the
skin to dry out and may cause rashes. Use oil or lotion to
rebuild the natural oils of your skin.
Soap Lake water is a wonderful liquid and its
unique mineral composition can benefit mankind greatly, but
it is not a cure-all. It should be used with common sense
and in certain cases, with the advice of a medical doctor
who knows about Soap Lake water, its contents and its

Soap Lake is what is known as a soft
mineral lake because its most abundant mineral is
washing soda, rather than the calcium salts which
are the main mineral in hard water.
