Exposing The Low Salt Diet Myth
July 2011 News Letter By Eldore Hanni

We are told a low salt or salt free diet is best for our health, when actually the opposite is true.
All warm blooded animals must have salt to live. The human brain and spine is in a sac of salt water. We all spend about 9 months in our mother’s belly floating in salt water. Our tears are salty and we sweat salt. Bones are hollow in the center where blood cells are made. The marrow is covered with many strands of calcium salts, The way rope is woven together, Salt crystals are woven in with the calcium and these salt crystals are what make our bones hard, 27% of the body’s salt content is located in the bones. When the body requires more salt it can borrow it from the bones making them thinner, softer and brittle.

Even back in the middle ages, people knew about salt in our diet to keep us healthy. They often put criminals in prison by being out in a cell and given no salt. It caused a slow agonizing death.

In summery, salt is very beneficial for our health. The problem is, most of the salt we are consuming is the wrong salt. The salt we use today comes from oceans, lakes, or salt mines.

In addition to sodium and chlorine, all salt on planet earth comes with many trace minerals mixed into it. So we can assume that these trace minerals are very important or they would not be combined with the salt. Because of the commercial value of these minerals they are removed in order to make big profits. The salt ends up being heated to 1200 degrees. Now all we have left is 40% sodium and 60% chloride. Then an anti-caking agent is added so it won’t stick together. So most of the salt sold in super markets is nothing but sodium chloride. This is also true of food served in restaurants.

We would like to suggest buying all table salt from health food stores making sure we get unrefined natural salt such as sea salt. You may be surprised to see your blood pressure suddenly become normal. Irregular heartbeats may be stopped by putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and letting it dissolve. Gout symptoms can be prevented by using salt. A glass of water and a pinch of salt on the end of the tongue can also stop a runny nose. Asthma symptoms can also be relieved by using these treatments. Diabetics can bring down their blood sugar levels and reduce their need for insulin by taking salt.
