How important are minerals for health, energy, wellbeing?
Did you know the right salt (not table/commercial salts) gives you the minerals your body needs.
I found the video and the article by Dr. Mercola provides vital information to keep your health and that of your family at high levels. Importance of Salt
Salt: The Essence of Life
The function of the human body is entirely dependent upon its conductivity and the ability of it to transmit information electrically.
Every one of your 4 trillion cells has an electrical charge. The communication between your body’s cells and systems requires a proper environment for electrical signals and impulses to be exchanged.
No salt = no conductivity = no life!
In fact when people are put on a drip in hospital, guess what’s in that drip most times, saline – salty fluids
We’ve all seen the experiment in high school science class where we try to run electricity through distilled water (devoid of minerals) in attempts to complete a circuit and light up a light bulb.
8 Benefits of Unrefined Sea Salt
1. Sinus or Bronchial Congestion – Himalayan & Celtic Salt has an affinity for mucous. It literally draws it out of the body. When you use this Salt… you will greatly increase the mucous blown out the nose and coughed up.
2. Nourishing the Adrenals – Your adrenal glands run on sodium, but what they need is not the toxic refined sodium chloride table salt, but a whole, unrefined salt. A significant part of immune response comes from adrenal hormone secretions. But if your adrenals are weak and stressed out, they have nothing to give when you feel that cold or flu coming on.
3. Preventing Illness – More heavily salting food at the first signs of sickness can counteract the illness. Himalayan/Celtic Salt stimulates cellular energy and enhances resistance to infections. This may be due in part to Celtic Salt’s beneficial effect on the adrenal glands.
4. Better, Longer Sleep – I’ve discovered from personal experience and that of clients that taking this salt at bedtime, generally results in longer, uninterrupted, more refreshing sleep.
5. High Blood Pressure – Everyone thinks high blood pressure is aggravated by salt. That’s true and false. Refined, toxic table salt is an irritant to the body that can cause high blood pressure. Many people experience a lowering of blood pressure by using Himalayan/ Celtic Salt.
6. Fluid Retention – Did you ever in your wildest dreams think someone would tell you that a special type of natural salt would reverse fluid retention? Using Celtic Sea Salt many people lose fluid weight from the proper balancing out of the minerals in salt. Eat refined sodium chloride only salt and you’ll get fluid retention as the body tries to neutralize this toxin. Eat Celtic Salt and the body can be properly balanced out on its electrolyte minerals and release that retained water.
7. Trauma – Extra Celtic Salt can be beneficial for shock, severe burns (not externally), hemorrhage, surgery and physical trauma.
8. Other Conditions – This type of natural salt is also reported to help correct excess acidity, relieve allergies, relieve skin diseases, and restore better digestion through stimulating hydrochloric acid secretions.
Toxic Salt: Refined Salt
The reason that salt has been shown in various studies to damage the body is because the salt used in those studies is toxic and is not fit for human consumption. Created from a high-heat refining process that removes virtually all the mineral content, refined table salt becomes a highly processed food that doesn’t even resemble real salt from nature.
Real salt from nature consists of about 84% sodium chloride and 16% other minerals and trace elements in a perfectly balanced matrix, whereas the composition of refined salt is about 97.5% sodium chloride and up to 2.5% chemical additives. The composition of refined salt significantly changes its effect in the body.
Let’s look at what is added to refined salt after it is stripped of it’s life-giving mineral content:
- Anti-caking agents such as aluminum are then added to the salt to make sure the grains of salt don’t stick together. (Excess aluminum is toxic to the body and brain.)
- Corn sugar (dextrose) has also been a typical additive to salt to keep it free-flowing.
- Potassium Iodide is then added because it’s an essential nutrient, but the problem is,
- Sodium Fluoride is also added, which cancels out the utilization of iodine in the body. (Sodium fluoride is toxic to the body and mind.)
- The salt is then bleached white for appeal. (Bleach is toxic to the body.)
Many people think that they’ve solved the problem by purchasing “Sea Salt” from their local health food store. This sea salt is refined just like table salt, and generally comes from the exact same refineries as refined table salt. It is no better than table salt, and the term “Sea Salt” is a complete misnomer.
What’s the best Salt to use, you may ask:
I personally use any unrefined salt (usually Himalayan Salt or Celtic Salt) that has it’s full complement of minerals, up to 100, and use this on food, and use a pinch
in water a few times a day to help my body get minerals, when I don’t have any of Gerry Amena’s sea mineral tonics.
Gerry Amena’s sea mineral tonics have been around for a long time and I quote a colleague of mine ‘I had forgotten just how good they are’ . Judith, NZ , volunteered her experience with the tonics: ” Just to let you know:
I used to suffer from extremely bad Vertigo. If I leaned just slightly to the right and then back up straight again I would black out. Also if I moved too fast especially if I was turning around or sitting up in bed. It was the worst thing. Also travelling – whenever we went up or down a hill my ears were very painful. I dreaded flying to Aussie to visit my family – almost had burst eardrums (or felt like it anyway) and I was deaf by the time I hit the ground. The pain was excruciating and I was almost in tears. Tried everything including medication from the Dr but nothing worked. I purchased your Mineral Water and started taking that at night. Within 3 or 4 days my vertigo was completely gone and I have never had that problem again. Hills don’t bother me anymore while driving.
Flying is possible now. Still some discomfort but I can get through it. Maybe if I keep taking the water that will improve as well – I ran out and never got around to ordering more – silly me.
I also know of 5 x people who had Cancer and got onto the Mineral Water and now the cancer is gone and they are living a full life. One of those is my eldest brother. He had Prostrate Cancer. A few months ago he had another check up and the specialist was expecting to have to tell him that he only had so long to live but when they tested him etc there was not one sign of cancer. They can’t understand it – he never told them what he was taking. 🙂 He also had another problem of which I cannot begin to pronounce it let alone spell it – but he made too much iron in his blood and had to have blood drained off every few months (4 or 6 I think it was). He no longer has that problem and they haven’t had to drain blood off for ages now. Needless to say he is a “box of fluffy ducks” now much to our relief. Both my brother and I keep passing on your web site address etc and all the information to anyone we hear is suffering from Cancer (or one of their family is) or any other illness and wants to try something natural. It’s the best product out and we thank you for it.’
Dietary intake of salt is so vital that biological life as we know it cannot exist without it.
We use and stock Amena’s Sea Minerals, they can be picked up from our clinic or posted, you only need a few drops, so a bottle lasts quite a while, its great value for money.
