Salt has a BAD reputation!

"The cure for anything is salt water; sweat, tears or the sea ." Isak Dinesen, writer

"Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all." 
Nelson Mandela, South African president

If you have high blood pressure you've probably been told to avoid salt and I would agree with this recommendation because the salt that is causing your problems is everyday white table salt.

Table salt is commonly used in packaged and processed foods and usually in very high quantities.  Salt acts as a preservative, extending the shelf life of these foods.
 
Table salt is highly processed, removing the minerals and trace elements that are a vital component of our blood and bodily fluids.  It is subject to environmental contamination and pollutants.
 
Table salt can contribute to high blood pressure, compromised immunity, kidney and gall stones, arthritis, rheumatism and gout, fluid retention and contribute to cellulite.

It's no wonder table salt has such a bad reputation! 

Do you really need salt to be healthy?


Sodium Chloride is a vital ingredient in the make up of our bodies, it carries nutrients into and out of our cells.  

Sodium helps to activate the first digestive enzyme needed to fully absorb nutrients and digest our food, this enzyme is saliva. The stimulation of digestive enzymes continues throughout the digestive tract with the help of sodium (aka salt).

The benefits of salt are many, here are just a few:
  • Balances and replenishes the body's electrolytes
  • Improves energy
  • Boosts immune function
  • Balances PH levels
  • Improves and aids digestion
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Supports healthy adrenal function
  • Improves circulation
  • Regulates nerve impulses
  • Reduces toxin accumulation
  • Aids in relieving skin conditions and allergies
OK................so what kind of salt 
should you be using?
Himalayan Pink Sea Salt is an excellent source of sodium. But wait a minute!  When did the Himalayan Mountains move to the sea?  
   
Actually the sea moved away from the mountains, approximately 250 million years ago they were under water. This is fantastic for us because as the ocean salt water settled into caves and lava tubes, it created a pure, unprocessed and unrefined rock salt.

This rock salt is mined by hand from the salt caves then stone ground.  This pink salt provides us with a full complement of minerals and trace elements that are essential for life just as Mother Nature intended.

And it does all of this without contamination from environmental pollutants. I think this is pretty amazing!


Celtic Sea Salt  is sourced from the Northwest coast of France and harvested once the sun has evaporated the seawater from the pristine, clean clay ponds near the shoreline.  The salt is collected by hand using 2,000 year old traditional Celtic methods.

This salt is light gray in color and has a 'moist' texture. It is unprocessed and unrefined, allowing it to maintain all of the health benefits.  

Celtic Sea Salt also contains a full complement of minerals and trace elements our bodies require.

Both of these salts are easily found in most grocery stores or you can find them online.

The best way to avoid unhealthy salts is to avoid packaged and processed foods, read the ingredient label when you do purchase these foods.  

I can't stress this enough READ THE INGREDIENT LABEL on all packaged and processed foods, not just the nutrition facts.

Eating whole foods, cooking from scratch and maintaining control of your ingredients is the best defense.
