The Healing Power Of Salt

The Earth supplies abundantly for our needs. We might be the highest intelligence on the planet but we don’t have the largest population. We are outnumbered by microbes with estimated numbers of 4 quadrillion quadrillion.

Those microbes can make us sick at times. Did you know that salt has been used in ancient times to respond to incidents of illness. Have you ever noticed how animals will seek-out salt as a contributor to their own health and well being. Think of Deer and Salt licks.

We customarily do the same with our meal preparation.

Is Chicken Noodle Soup a favourite because of Salt? Salt is our #1 seasoning, it’s a food in the truest sense of the word; we could not survive without it. It has healing properties and supports our immune system. It kills microbes.

It is a vital substance and performs important functions in our bodies.

Salt contributes to body system regulation and elimination ensuring a healthy nutrient and water balance, regulating blood pressure and bone density.

Salt: Next to water, one of the most abundant substances on Earth.

Salt Cures Everything

Small scratches and wounds heal even faster in seawater salt. Unfortunately, swimming in the sea is not always a possibility, unless you have ocean front property. Of course, salt should not be applied to open wounds.  The Salt in wounds proverb applies here. You can add sea salt to a bath though.

In today’s medicine, salt is still used in various fields. It can be used with respiratory diseases, as well as in metabolic disorders, lack of concentration, sleep disorders and skin diseases.

Are you getting enough salt?

Here are a few tips on using salt to help with physical ailments:

Inhaling salt water vapour:

Inhaling salt water can help to open the airways and relieve inflammation in the nasal passages. Try, pouring 1 litre of hot water and approx. 2 or 3 teaspoons of salt (Best: Himalayan Sea salt medium coarse) into a pot or bowl, position your face over it and cover your head and the pot with a towel. Inhale for about 10 minutes.

Mouth Rinse and Gargle

For tooth ache or inflamed and bleeding gums, try a teaspoon of salt and a sip of filtered water then swish, gargle and spit it out. Repeat as you like.  This can speed up the healing process.

Bladder Infections

Drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of salt daily (recommended: Himalayan salt fine grained) on an empty stomach can help with digestive problems, allergies, colds and kidney and bladder infections. It also supports weight loss and improves the appearance of the skin. This is absolutely not recommended for people with high blood pressure though!

Salt contributes to your health and wellbeing

If you do have high blood pressure look into the benefits of a beet supplement. Also be sure to drink enough filtered water daily. This is especially true if you are sick and increase the salt in your diet for a time.

Salt is a vital part of your health care regimen.  The latest scientific findings tells us that we need more salt than was previously recommended.

One of those components is the most important thing to get right. 80% of your result will come from this one component. Can you guess what it is?

Exercise – How you use your body

Yoga
Yoga improves your overall strength and flexibility.
You are using your own body weight in ways that challenge your body to adapt. Benefits include better cirulation, balance, oxygenation, flexibity, improved immune system, lower stress and overall sense of well being.

Free Weights
Free weights for resistance training. You can firm and tone your muscles by putting them under stress. Find and learn exercise routines to help you target your major muscle groups. Its best to alternate upper body and lower body training programs. This gives your body time to recover and rebuild.

Cardio
Cardio helps you improve your resting heart rate. You do intense interval workouts that raise your heart rate and improve your overall fitness. At rest you’ll have a lower heart rate because your body has a more efficient circulatory system that is moving nutrients and oxygen around your body.

Rest – How you let your body recover

Get enough rest. If you have been using your body intensely, you have to let it recover.
Preferrably, letting it rest after it is properly nourished with cleansing pure water and clean nutrious food.

Diet – What you put into your body

The number one secret to achieving your personal peak health is making the right choices about your nutrition. You often hear the term, “Eat Clean” or “Healthy Eating”.

Our food is our medicine

Dear Reader,

The right food, combined with proper rest and exercise can greatly enhance our Health and Beauty.

Dr. Steven Gundry would even make the point that all of our diseases come from a single source. What we put into our mouths.

 

He has insight into foods such as:

    • Rice
    • Whole Grains
    • Yams and Tubers
    • Fiber
    • Meat treated with Anti Biotics
    • Eggs
    • Chicken
    • Sugar
    • Intermittent Fasting
    • Insulin resistance
    • Ketones

The video below is very beneficial and insightful. He discusses observations about diet from all around the world.

Disclaimer:

Ignore the mumbo jumbo about us being related to apes that he mentions at the beginning.

150 year old Darwinian Evolution is dead and dead wrong. Modern Scientific observation has settled it. But Dr. Gundry is a product of his education. So forgive him his shortcomings.
