Salt Is Vital
There’s always a lot of talk about salt and how bad it is for your body.
The fact is that people are getting it ALL wrong. What they’re reading about is true…. but only about TABLE SALT.
Refined and altered table salt is not nearly the same as mineral-rich natural salts.
Table salt can be chemically produced or refined, bleached, and may contain anti-caking agents, MSG, and even aluminum!
When you place salt-water fish in water salted with table salt…well, they don’t survive.
Natural salt is necessary and important for our bodies….in fact, salt a vital electrolyte.
So which type of salt should you choose?
- Himalayan Pink Salt (also known as Pink Gold) is loaded with nutrients and contains 93 additional trace minerals. Regular table salt (created in a lab), contains only two trace minerals.
- Celtic Sea Salt, also loaded with nutrients and trace minerals, is great to help alkalize your body, balance blood sugars, and even improve brain function.
Your challenge this week is to replace ALL of your table salt at home with one of the 2 salts mentioned above.
Accept this challenge?

(see how many times Dr. F. Batmanghelidj mentions “Salt is vital”!)
According to Dr. F. Batmanghelidj in his book, Water: For Health, for Healing, for Life:
Salt is most effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and, contrary to the misconception that it causes high blood pressure, it is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure—in conjunction with water. Naturally, the proportions are critical.
Salt is vital to the extraction of excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain cells.
Salt is vital for balancing the sugar levels in the blood; a needed element in diabetics.
Salt is vital for the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in the body. It is used for local power generation at the sites of energy need by the cells.
Salt is vital for absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract.
Salt is vital for the clearance of the lungs of mucus plugs and sticky phlegm, particularly in asthma and cystic fibrosis.
Salt is vital for clearing up congestion of the sinuses.
Salt is a strong natural antihistamine.
Salt is essential for the prevention of muscle cramps.
Salt is vital to prevent excess saliva production to the point that it flows out of the mouth during sleep. Needing to constantly mop up excess saliva indicates salt shortage.
Salt is absolutely vital to making the structure of bones firm. Osteoporosis, in a major way, is a result of salt and water shortage in the body.
Salt is vital for sleep regulation. It is a natural hypnotic.
Salt on the tongue will stop persistent dry coughs.
Salt is vital for the prevention of gout and gouty arthritis.
Salt is vital for maintaining sexuality and libido.
Salt is vital for preventing varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and thighs.
Salt is vital to the communication and information processing of nerve cells the entire time that the brain cells work—from the moment of conception to death.
However, not just any salt will do. It is processed and bleached salts that are the problem. However, when a salt is filled with dozens of minerals such as in the rose-coloured crystals of Himalayan rock salt or the grey texture of Celtic sea salt, our bodies can benefit tremendously for their incorporation into our diet.
