Ingredient Of The Week – Salt

First up, let’s look at table salt. Sodium chloride is an unnatural chemical form of salt that your body doesn’t recognize, and why would it – it’s foreign to it and doesn’t need or want it for anything. This form of salt is in practically every processed food there is. This type of salt increases our blood pressure, our weight, and basically is a very nasty substance to put inot your body. And what about adding iodine to this already toxic salt? This started as someone figured that we all had an underactive thyroid so why not mass medicate the population? And an easy way to do this was to add potentially toxic iodine to table salt. This comes in the form of potassium iodine or sodium iodine – to create iodised salt. Sugar (dextrose) is also added to stabilise the iodine. Oh and it has another chemical added to prevent in getting lumpy. In addition, your table salt very often contains potentially dangerous preservatives – calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, and aluminum hydroxide. (Aluminum is a light alloy that deposits into your brain — a potential cause of Alzheimer’s disease.) And it’s most of bleached. Today’s table and cooking salt is void of vital trace minerals. What remains after salt is “chemically cleaned” is sodium chloride.
Refined table salt that you get from supermarkets in big plastic containers is 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. Dried at over 650oC, the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt, besides everything else wrong with it.
Typical table salt crystals are totally isolated from each other. In order for your body to try to metabolize table salt crystals, it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy. Inorganic sodium chloride can keep you from an ideal fluid balance and can overburden your elimination systems.
For every gram of sodium chloride that your body cannot get rid of, your body uses 23 times the amount of cell water to neutralize the salt. Eating this kind of common table salt causes excess fluid in your body tissue, which can contribute to cellulite, rheumatism, arthritis, gout and kidney and gall bladder stones. Next, the god stuff!
