Rock Salt Dr’s recommend for GOOD HEALTH

 

Doctor’s Verdict on SALT – interesting

The following article, which has got to be good news for many people out there and I wish to share it with you.

No wonder in the olden days Blood Pressure problem was never heard of. WE didn’t have the Iodized Salt !!

WE all must switch to Rock Salt

STRESS RELIEF. Is salt bad for hypertensive?

What is bad for hypertension is iodized salt, which is a fake salt. It
is made up of only 3 synthetic chemicals, sodium, chloride, iodine. It does not melt in water (glistens like diamonds), does NOT melt in the
body, does not melt in the kidneys, gives kidney stones, and raises blood pressure.   However, it is the salt favored by the  drug-based doctors who say it is very clean and sanitary, pointing to how white it is and how it glistens like diamonds. The fake salt is man-made in a factory.

The true salt, which comes from the sea and dried under the sun and commonly called rock salt , has 72 natural minerals including natural sodium, chloride, iodine. It melts in water, melts in your body, melts in the kidneys, does not give kidney stones, and best of all ,brings down blood pressure and stops/prevents muscle cramps, numbness, tingling.

If you get muscle cramps in the lower legs at night, just take  a half teaspoon of rock salt and a glass of water, and the cramps with its
horrific pain will be gone in 5 minutes.

The highest BP that came my way was in a woman who had a BP of 240/140 and came to my house at 10:30 pm on what she said was a matter of “life and death” because the high BP was already giving her a crushing headache, especially the back of her head. She could not walk up the 6 shallow steps to my porch. Two men had to help her, one on each side, in addition to the cane that she needed to prop herself up.

I muscle tested her and found that she had her BP of 240/140 and
the crushing pain in the head, her body’s water content was only 6%
(normal is 75%), salt content was zero, potassium was 96% deficient,
and cardiac output (blood flow from the heart) was only 40% (normal is 100%). So the blood supply to the head was 60% deficient.

I gave her one 6″ long green chili (hot pepper), 1 raw ripe saba
banana, 1/2 teaspoon of rock salt and 3 8-oz glasses of tap water.
The chili was to normalize cardiac output and shoot blood to the head, the saba banana was for the potassium deficiency and to have food in the stomach because pepper will give a stomach ache if the stomach is empty, and the rock salt and the water were the first aid for her severe dehydration which was causing her arteries to be dry and stiff and her blood to be thick and sticky, because they were dehydrated.
After 5 minutes, she said, “The pain in my head is gone.” We took her
BP, it was 115/75, and cardiac output was up to 100%.

She walked out of the house to her car without the men helping her and without the cane.

She has been taking 2.5 teaspoons of rock salt, 15 glasses of water, 6
Saba bananas and 3 of the long pepper daily since then (beginning
September 2009), and her BP and cardiac output have been normal since then.

Two months later, in November, at a PCAM round table forum on
hypertension in Club Filipino, she gave her testimony, followed by her
brother who said that she grew 2″, because the salt and the water had
refilled her compressed disc spaces in her vertebral column. The disc
spaces had become compressed because they had become dehydrated since the fluid filling up these discs are 95% water.

Why salt? Because without salt the body cannot retain water no matter how much water is drunk. You will still be dehydrated because you will just keep urinating and sweating the water out.  We give rock salt to our animals !

This is not an isolated case. When BP is rising high but there is
little or no headache but there is stiffness of shoulder and neck
muscles, all you need to normalize the BP and remove the stiffness and the pain in 5 minutes is 1/2 teaspoon of rock salt and 3 glasses of
water. If there is crushing pain in the head, it means blood supply to
the head is lacking, and you will need the chili to normalize it and
shoot blood to the head and remove the extreme pain.


WHAT IS SEA SALT?

Natural salt is generally a very healthful product. Unrefined sea salt is an important source of minerals. This is especially today, as the food supply is mineral-deficient due to hybrid crops, modern agriculture methods and food processing and refining.

Unrefined salt has little or no effect on blood pressure. It helps maintain electrolyte and osmotic balance. It also has an desalinizing effect on the body and is an extremely yang food in Chinese medical terminology.

The sodium it contains is critical for osmotic balance and to solubilize other minerals in the blood. Deficiency of sodium causes other minerals to become biounavailable and precipitate into the soft tissues and elsewhere.

All the above are very positive reasons to eat salt on food. Avoiding a quality unrefined sea salt is rarely necessary, and often harmful since it is a source of vital minerals. I recommend quality sea salt for almost everyone. Most tolerate it well with no adverse effects, when used properly in moderate amounts only. Those with very high blood pressure may need to wait until their pressure drops, although a quality sea salt may actually assist in diminishing their blood pressure.

Its unbalanced mineral content actually causes more mineral imbalances, as it is too high in sodium and very low in calcium and magnesium, two vital minerals today that can be obtained to a degree from salt.

You will find most takeaway foods or restaurants will use table salt or MSG which is another type of refined salt and food enhancer.

If mineral depletion is not bad enough, common table salt often has aluminum, a toxic metal, is also added as a flowing agent, which everyone knows is the catalysis for Alzheimers. It is also often bleached for whiteness with other toxic chemicals. It is an unbalanced, toxic product that should be totally avoided.

THE MINERALS IN SALT BIOAVAILABLE

Some people claim that since salt is not a live food, one cannot obtain the minerals from salt. This is simply not true. The minerals may not be as bioavailable as they are in foods, and this is true. However, the body has quite an ability to chelate or bind inorganic minerals, especially those found in some sea salts.

For this reason, eating some sea salt every day is a wonderful and necessary means of supplementing one’s mineral intake. One must, however, have healthy digestion and a low stomach pH to absorb the minerals well. This is one reason every adult on a nutritional balancing program takes a digestive aid, regardless of age or health status.

 

WHAT IS TABLE SALT?

Common table salt is a highly refined product and one of the worst junk foods. Virtually all its the trace minerals are missing, so that it is almost pure sodium chloride. The trace minerals are removed and sold separately. This profits the salt company and leaves our bodies impoverished. This product should be banned completely, and our health would be far better.

Its unbalanced mineral content actually causes more mineral imbalances, as it is too high in sodium and very low in calcium and magnesium, two vital minerals today that can be obtained to a degree from salt.

If mineral depletion is not bad enough, common table salt often has aluminum, a toxic metal, added as a flowing agent. It is also often bleached for whiteness with other toxic chemicals. It is an unbalanced, toxic product that should be totally avoided.

The theory is based on the observation that increased sodium intake is associated with an increase in blood pressure.

A widely preached verdict by Doctors is that an increased sodium intake is associated with an increase in blood pressure (hypertension) which is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, and stroke.  The assumption is that by reducing dietary sodium (salt) we will reduce hypertension and therefore the problems associated with hypertension.

A  Dr. Jan Staessen followed about 3,700 patients and over 30,000 people were studied by a Dr. Salim Yusef for approx four years.   They examined low sodium intake (less than 2.3 grams), moderate intake (2.3 to seven grams), and high intake (more than seven grams) and found at the extremely high levels there was an increased risk of cardiovascular events.

However, they also found with low levels of sodium intake there was an increased risk of cardiovascular death and increased risk of hospitalization for heart failure, and also had a 2.5 percent increase in their cholesterol plus a seven percent increase in their triglyceride levels.   But make sure you are using the right salt.

So why the smack on salt? We love a villain.

It is easy to campaign if everyone can get behind a common enemy and crusade. But good science is not about crusading with preconceived ideas. It’s about asking why, and seeking the truth, however inconvenient it might be and however tortuous the path to get there. Public health policy needs to be based on firm scientific foundation and clear benefit, not populist propaganda. The government needs to leave the recipes and the cookery to the chefs. And leave the salt on my pommes frites.

Here is A comment by a working chef — because this proposal is especially grievous when it comes to regulating an art form like restaurant cookery. I am not talking about prepackaged and assembled food-like products. I am talking about chefs creating real food from real ingredients. Let us examine some data:

  • Over 70 percent of daily sodium intake comes from processed, pre-packaged, and prepared foods.
  • Only about five percent of daily sodium intake comes from salt added to properly season food that is freshly cooked
  • Even if you add salt at the table, this makes up only about six percent of daily intake
  • Another 10 percent (roughly) is inherent in food itself.
  • The government’s own recommendations (PDF) note that the hypertensive effect of excess sodium consumption is manifest at levels above six grams per day.

 

ADDING SALT TO DRINKING WATER

by Lawrence Wilson, MD

This is a newer “detoxification procedure” that I do not endorse at all. It is quite dangerous, in fact, though it starts our harmlessly enough. Adding salt to drinking water will cause the removal of a few toxic metals by an osmotic mechanism. The problem is that it may also remove vital or essential minerals slowly and insidiously. It can also subtly dehydrate the body. Therefore, I do not recommend this procedure at all.
