We have been eating salt for thousands of years. Actually, we’ve been eating it how it is found in nature for thousands of years: unrefined.
It wasn’t until modern times we started to refine it and add iodine to it.
Note: If you live in a hot climate, eating salt as part of your regular diet is even more important because significant amounts of sodium are lost in sweating.
A few things to know about unrefined salt:
Natural salt is generally a very healthful product. Unrefined sea salt is an important source of minerals. This is especially today, as the food supply is mineral-deficient due to hybrid crops, modern agriculture methods and food processing and refining.
Unrefined salt has little or no effect on blood pressure. It helps maintain electrolyte and osmotic (the force needed to dissolve other minerals) balance. It also has an alkalizing effect on the body and rightly so, because mineral content is where you achieve alkalinity, not through your drinking water.
The sodium it contains is critical for osmotic balance and to solubilize (dissolve fatty tissues) other minerals in the blood. Deficiency of sodium causes other minerals to become unusable and deposit into the soft tissues and other types of tissues throughout the body.
These are terrific reasons to eat salt on food. Avoiding a quality unrefined sea salt is rarely necessary and often harmful since it is a source of vital minerals. I recommend quality sea salt in moderate amounts for almost everyone. Those with very high blood pressure may need to wait until their pressure drops, although a quality sea salt may actually assist in diminishing their
high blood pressure.
So what’s happened to our salt supply? It’s been refined by food companies, and therefore regulated by government. Partly due to the practice or refining table salt, the government forces salt companies to enrich all table salt with iodine. This is a positive benefit of table salt, but the only benefit.
Common table salt is a highly refined product and one of the worst junk foods. Virtually all its trace minerals are missing, so that it is almost pure sodium chloride. The trace minerals are removed and sold separately. This profits the salt company and leaves our bodies impoverished.
Its unbalanced mineral content actually causes more mineral imbalances, as it is too high in sodium and very low in calcium and magnesium, two vital minerals today that can be obtained to a degree from unrefined salt.
If mineral depletion is not bad enough, common table salt often has aluminum, a toxic metal, added as a flowing agent. It is also often bleached for whiteness with other toxic chemicals. It is an unbalanced, toxic product that should be totally avoided.
Did you know? The word ‘salary’ comes from the same root as the word salt. Salt was such a valuable commodity it was used for currency. The Roman word“salarium” linked employment, salt and soldiers. “in Rome. . .the soldier’s pay was originally salt and the word salary derives from it. . .” Plinius Naturalis Historia XXXI.
Below is a series of video’s on the importance of Minerals for good health. The good Doctor tells us everything about minerals and the diseases it they cure, except that we could get all the Minerals we need through Natural Unrefined Sea Salt.
Natural Unrefined Sea Salt contains 74 to 94 trace elements and minerals that the human body needs to be healthy.
Processed Table Salt contains 1 to 4 minerals. And it’s 98% Sodium Chloride.
Industry heats and boils off all the minerals leaving virtually pure Sodium. They then repackage the elements and minerals as Vitamins and Minerals and resell them to the public to cure the damage caused by the pure sodium.
The human body is roughly 70% Water and 30% Minerals. Every cell in your body is surrounded by “Sea Water”. Water that contains every single mineral that the human body needs

Finding the Chemical Analysis of Real Unrefined Sea Salt was very hard and took a couple of days and hours online.
Google does not want people to know whats good for them. In fact, we never found it online.
What we found was a NWO slip-up.
You see, we know of the health benefits of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. It is an ancient sea salt found in the Himalayan Mountains. It’s classified as a Jurassic Salt.
And it’s called Himalayan Rock Salt by some. So what we got was the Chemical Analysis of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt, which is Sea Salt, just old.

Alkalizing Sea salt is alkalizing to the body, as it has not been exposed to high heat and stripped of its minerals, nor does it have any harmful man-made ingredients added to it. Thus it can help you to prevent and reverse high levels of acids in the body, which in turn eliminates the risks for serious and life-threatening diseases. Weight Loss Believe it or not, but sea salt can also help you in weight loss. It helps the body to create digestive juices so that the foods you eat are digested faster, and it helps to prevent buildup in the digestive tract, which eventually can lead to constipation and weight gain. Skin Conditions A sea salt bath can help to relieve dry and itchy skin as well as serious conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The bath naturally opens up the pores, improves circulation in the skin and hydrates the tissues so that your skin can heal. Asthma Sea salt is effective in reducing inflammation in the respiratory system. Thus the production of phlegm is slowed down so that you can breathe easier again. Some say that sprinkling sea salt on the tongue after drinking a glass of water is just as effective as using an inhaler. But the great thing about sea salt is that it has no side effects when taken in moderation. Hearth Health When salt is taken with water it can help to reduce high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and help to regulate an irregular heart beat. Thus sea salt can help to prevent atherosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes. Diabetes Sea salt can help to reduce the need for insulin by helping to maintain proper sugar levels in the body. Thus the salt is an essential part of the diet if you are diabetic, or at risk for the disease. Osteoporosis Just over 1/4 of the amount of salt that is in the body is stored in the bones, where it helps to keep them strong. When the body lacks salt and water it begins to draw the sodium from the bones, which then eventually can lead to osteoporosis. Thus by drinking plenty of water and consuming salt in moderation you can prevent osteoporosis. Muscle Spasms Potassium is essential for helping the muscles to function properly. Sea salt not only contains small amounts of potassium, but it also helps the body to absorb it better from other foods. Thus it is effective in helping to prevent muscle pains, spasms and cramps. Depression Sea salt also has shown to be effective in treating various types of depression. The salt helps to preserve two essential hormones in the body that help you to better deal with stress. These hormones are serotonin and melatonin, which help you to feel good, and relax and sleep better at night. ***
