Busting Myths About Salt

untitled
Real salt, Celtic Sea Salt & Himalayan salt, contain several minerals and are actually vital for optimal health. Natural salt has been known to help combat a whole host of ailments including stress, depression, emotional disorders, confidence issues, muscle weakness, bladder control problems, diabetes, sleep disorders and arguably cancer.

Table salt (which is also found in most processed foods), is refined. This means it is stripped of all of it’s healthy minerals and all that is left is sodium chloride. It is chemically produced, bleached and not natural occurring.

Real salt:
*Regulates blood pressure
*Supports the adrenal glands
*Regulates the water content throughout the body
*Balances blood sugar in the blood
*Essential for digestion
*Regulates metabolism
*Vital for generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in the body

Processed table salt:
*Destabilizes blood pressure
*Upsets fluid balance
*Acts as a diuretic and a cell toxin
*Can slow down metabolism
*Contains fillers, such as aluminum
*Contains endocrine disruptors, especially fluoride
*Can cause cellulite and kidney stones

My morning cocktail to support the adrenal glands (exhausted during stress), digestion and mineral balance:

*1 glass of filtered water
*Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
*500mg-1000mg of vitamin C powder (Innate response whole food is my favorite)
*1 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
-Stir with a spoon and drink on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Allow 30 minutes before breakfast.

  1. We buy salt from the Great Salt Lake in Utah. It tastes stronger then “regular” salt so we use less which is good for my blood pressure.
