"Salt is bad for you."
"It increases blood pressure."
"It absorbs the water from your system."
"Salt causes kidney stones."
Has this ‘salt shocking’ duped us all? Table Salt is indeed a culprit and confirms the necessity of salt warnings. But salt is not all salt.
Salt, as we commonly know it, NaCl or sodium chloride is used everywhere and in everything. There are more than 14,000 uses for salt from deicing our winter roads, to industrial applications of soaps, detergents, plastics, PVC’s, to consumption in common Table Salt. The ‘salt warnings’ are against Table Salt.
This type of salt, NACL, is the table salt in all processed foods and common in restaurant salt shakers. It is a villain in our body. This pure sodium chloride does cause high blood pressure. Excess of this villain can cause kidney stones and gall bladder issues. Reduce your intake of this type of salt. Instead consume true salt.
Nature’s true salt contains 84 trace minerals essential and vital to our health. In the study of the Roman Empire we learn the soldiers were paid in ‘ white gold’, precious salt. Thus the word ‘salary’ and the expression ‘worth one’s salt’. As water is fundamental to our physiology, so is natural salt. Like Himalayan. Celtic. Think of the beach. The salt air. The salt waters.
