Salt and Your Health

CrystalsThe chemical and mineral compositions of our blood, and saline fluids have an amazing similarity to seawater.  As an embryo in our mother's womb, we are encased in a sack, filled with this saline fluid.

Seawater contains 84 mineral elements. These same 84 mineral elements are found in our bodies. Modern science has determined that 24 of these elements are essential for life, although many believe that a proper balance of all 84 elements in our bodies is necessary for good health. Whenever a dietary deficiency of any of these elements occurs, the cells in our bodies lose ions. A loss of ions in our cells causes imbalances, a breakdown of the cell regeneration and growth process, and loss of the cells themselves, which leads to nervous disorders, brain damage, muscle damage or illness.  Therefore, it is vital to your health to have the proper mineral balance in the saline and ion composition of your blood and these compositions must be maintained within very precise limits. Many illnesses and poor health conditions have been traced to a deficiency of minerals, ironically the minerals that are found in sea salt.

Good and Bad Salt

Buteyko Breathing Retraining

The Buteyko Institute Method (BIM) teaches people to correct the "automatic" breathing mechanism in the brain so it comes back closer to normal, gentle, nasal, day or night, awake or asleep. This results in immediate improvement in asthma, sleep apnoea, snoring, emphysema, COAD, COPD, sinusitis, hay fever, rhinitis, blocked nose, allergies, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, panic and anxiety conditions, and many other respiratory problems.

Using Sea Salt

Grinder

The most familiar use of salt undoubtedly is in the kitchen and on the dining table. Salt accents the flavour of meat, brings out individuality of vegetables, puts "oomph" into bland starches, deepens the flavour of delicate desserts and develops flavour of melons and certain other fruits. No other seasoning has yet been found that can satisfactorily take the place of salt.

Summary

theman2

The best evidence of why we need a good salt in our diet is that our blood, sweat and tears are salty and our bodies saline solution bears the closest resemblance to the mineral composition of sea water.  When we consume a good quality well balanced Sea Salt we replenish our body with essential minerals and trace elements that have been striped from refined table salts.

At Salt of the Earth we believe the best method of harvesting Sea Salt is simply by hand. Our Salt is naturally dried by the sun and wind then collected by farmers using long wooden tools. This is the only way to ensure all of the natural trace elements found in sea water are retained. 24 Minerals present in Sea Salt are regarded essential for life. These minerals work in coaction to replenish the body and flush out any excess Sodium Chloride.  Enhancing the flavour of foods and aiding digestion........ It is indeed the salt of life!

Did you know that refined salt is washed & bleached making it more attractive and uniform in appearance, it is nothing more than a harmful by-product from industries that remove the minerals for their commercial value. During this process they also add anti-caking agents (Aluminium Silicate) to avoid the salt becoming moist and sometimes artificial sources of Iodine (Potassium Iodate). When the refining process is over the salt looks great, flows more easily out of your saltshaker, but 82 of the 84 trace elements have been extracted leaving you with solely Sodium Chloride. Our bodies are not designed to absorb Sodium Chloride alone, thus contributing to a wide range of health problems today.
