Himalayan Crystal Salt

Table salt (Sodium Chloride) can be dangerous to eat.  It is in the queue to be regulated by FDA.  Salt is a natural antibiotic which allows it to be a great preservative.  It kills all bacteria, both good and harmful.  It also reduces water content.  Given these traits, salt can cause great harm to our digestive systems.

Table salt is 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals like iodine, absorbents and sugar.  Also, it is dried at more than 1200º F, which destroys its natural chemical structures.

There is the belief that if the sodium is reduced in the salt, this would be better for our diets.  This is a true statement since sodium does have the effect of damaging arteries.  However, reduced sodium table salt can still create toxins in our bloodstream.

There are many salt substitute products.  Beware of the ones using potassium as they can harm the renal system of the body.  In lieu of table salt or salt substitutes, herbs and spices can flavor your food effectively.

There are natural salts out there that have not been touched by the toxins and pollutants of sea salt.  One highly beneficial salt for you is called Himalayan Crystal Salt.  This salt has 84 natural minerals and elements that benefit the body.  It is also hundreds of millions old, developed under intense tectonic pressure and free of pollutants and toxins.  It has a cellular structure such that our cells can easily absorb it.

About Gary

I am retired, but not tired. I still want to be valuable to others. I know that others are valuable to me. After looking back on six decades, I have asked myself this question: “What do I believe?” My mind filled up. My heart started beating faster. My spirit soared. I post blogs to share what my mind is working on, what my heart believes would help others and, what my spirit is communicating to me. What do I believe, you ask? Decisions dictate your path In love, not hate In tolerance, not prejudice In health, not sickness In wealth, not poverty In kindness, rudeness In happiness, not sadness In encouragement, not discouragement In faith, not doubt In courage, not fear I have been and will be challenged in each one of these beliefs, but the biggest belief is to stay positive and not turn negative. This belief helps me maintain all of the others.
