GOOD Salt is NOT your enemy

When consumed in moderation, good sea or Himalayan salt provides trace minerals - which are missing in many chronic disorders, including cardiovascular disease.

Low Sodium Diet MAY Increase Heart Attack Risk

“Researchers studied the relationship between a low-sodium diet and cardiovascular mortality. Nearly 3,000 hypertensive subjects were studied. The result of this study was that there was a 430% increase in myocardial infarction (heart attack) in the group with the lowest salt intake versus the group with the highest salt intake”.

–   David Brownstein, M.D.“Salt your way to Health”

Alderman M, Low urinary sodium is associated with greater risk of myocardial infarction among treated hypertensive men. Hypertension, 1995; 25:1144-1152

Review study of healthy people on low-sodium diets found LDL increased 4.6% and triglycerides 5.9%

Jürgens G1,Graudal NA.Effects of low sodium diet versus high sodium diet on blood pressure, renin, aldosterone, catecholamines, cholesterols, and triglyceride. Cochrane Database Syst Rev.2003;(1):CD004022.

Another review reported cholesterol increased 2.5% and triglycerides 7%

Graudal NA,Hubeck-Graudal T,Jurgens G. Effects of low sodium diet versus high sodium diet on blood pressure, renin, aldosterone, catecholamines, cholesterol, and triglyceride. Cochrane Database Syst Rev.2011 Nov 9;(11):CD004022. doi: 10.1002/14651858.CD004022.pub3.

Both studies found that salt restriction produced only minor reductions in blood pressure (on average), with a somewhat stronger effect in those with high blood pressure.

Do not consume regular table salt

Processed table salt is an unnatural chemical form of salt - Excessive drying heat (>1200ºF) alters natural chemical structure of the salt.“Chemically cleaned”table salt is 97.5% sodium chloride (devoid of trace minerals) and the other 2.5% is iodine and chemicals E.g moisture absorbents, such as calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, and aluminum hydroxide. (Aluminum deposits into your brain –potentially a cause of Alzheimer's disease).


Average person consumes an excessive daily 4-6 grams, some as much as 10 grams – processed table salt is found in almost all processed foods and also added at the table.

Excess Salt depletes body's cellular water - water molecules must surround the sodium chloride to break them up into sodium and chloride ions in order to help neutralize them. This takes water from your cells. Your body uses 23 times the amount of cell water to neutralize every gram of sodium chloride that your body cannot get rid of. This causes excess fluid in your body tissue, which can contribute to cellulite, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, and kidney / gall bladder stones.

Unrefined Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt

Supplies precious TRACE MINERALS in natural form

Ingest a daily minimum of 1/2 tsp. Unrefined, Himalayan or Celtic sea Salt (Both good choices)

Properties of unrefined, Himalayan and Celtic Sea Salts

–   Contaminant-free


–   Contains all of the 84 elements found in the body – the same elements originally found in the “primal sea”, all in colloidal form (small enough for your cells to readily absorb them).

Spectral analysis of Himalayan salt

–   Has Perfect crystalline structure (as seen under an electron microscope) - the interconnectedness of each molecule provides a harmonious vibrational energy component of the 84 elements present. The picture on the left (below) shows refined sea-salt. The natural Himalayan salt shown on the right clearly has a more structured crystalline form.

Health benefits of natural, unrefined Salt

1. Regulates water content throughout the body.

2. Promotes healthy pH balance inbody's cells - particularly brain cells.

3. Promotesblood sugarbalance and help reducethe signs ofaging.

4. Assists in the generation of hydroelectric energy in body's cells.

5. Absorbs food particles through your intestinal tract.

6. Supports respiratory health.

7. Promotes sinus health.

8. Prevents muscle cramps.

9. Promotes bone strength.

10. Regulates sleep - it naturally promotes sleep.

11. Supports your libido.

12. Promotes vascular health.

13. Essential for the regulation of blood pressure - in conjunction with water.

Unrefined salt also has health benefits when applied to the body - use a 1% solution (the same concentration as found in tears and amniotic fluid). For comparison, the sea is a 3½% concentration.

–   Salt Bath - Use 2¼pounds in a normal sized tub. Body absorbs minerals through the skin. Also rejuvenates your skin.

–   Apply a 1% solution to rashes, insect bites – amazing, simple, effective and cheap remedy; also rejuvenates the skin.
