"All sickness and disease conditions, including all cancers show a deficiency in blood plasma sodium." Dr. Robert O. Young
For years, doctors have been telling us that too much salt is bad for us. Until now.
A study claims that cutting down on salt can actually increase the risk of dying from a heart attack or a stroke.
The research has left nutritionists scratching their heads.
Its findings indicate that those who eat the least sodium – about one teaspoon a day – don’t show any health advantage over those who eat the most.
In the eight-year study, people with the lowest salt intake had the highest rate of death from heart disease!
In fact, those with less salty diets actually had slightly higher death rates from heart disease.
The study, which followed 3,681 healthy European men and women aged 60 or younger, for about eight years, also found that above-average salt intake did not appear to increase the danger of developing high blood pressure.
The report, in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, was released just three months after the U.S. government launched a public health campaign urging restaurants and food manufacturers to cut down on their use of salt.
Sodium was measured in the urine of those taking part, at the beginning and end of the study.
A little more than six per cent of the participants suffered a heart attack, a stroke or some other cardiovascular emergency during the eight years. About a third of these were fatal.
Those who consumed the least salt had a 56 per cent higher risk of death from a heart attack or stroke compared with those who consumed the most.
This was even after obesity, cholesterol levels, smoking, diabetes and other risk factors were taken into account.
There were 50 deaths in the third of participants with the lowest salt consumption, 24 in the third with medium intake and just ten deaths in those with the highest salt levels.
Lead researcher Jan Staessen, head of the hypertension laboratory at the University of Leuven, in Belgium, said: ‘Our findings do not support a generalized reduction of salt intake in the population.’
The scientists did not have a firm explanation for their results, but they reportedly speculated that low levels of salt in the body could cause more stress in the nervous system, decrease sensitivity to insulin and affect hormones that control blood pressure and sodium absorption.

|The Amazing Benefits of Alkalizing Mineral Salts and the New Liquid Salt - pHlavor|
In my research I have discovered that salt is at the foundation in the creation of all major elements of the body when the elements of oxygen or hydrogen give up their protons. The pathway to magnesium, potassium and even calcium begins with salt. For example, when the protons of oxygen, which are eight, are acquired by the nucleus of the sodium, which is eleven protons, it becomes potassium, which has nineteen protons. The equation is: When potassium acquires an additional proton from the hydrogen ion it becomes calcium or when the sodium ion acquires an additional proton from the hydrogen ion it becomes magnesium. The equations are:
It is no coincidence that our body fluids are salted with sodium or that the ocean is salted with sodium rather than some other element. You now have the simple understanding that sodium (salt) is at the foundation of life and without it we would die. This is why I recommend eating more salt in the diet. In fact a 154 pound man or woman should be eating at least 10 grams of salt a day. And when you have sugar cravings it is not the need for sugar it is the need for salt. Eat some salt and your sugar cravings will go away with renewed energy and "sustainable energy"™
Now, just don't eat any salt. It has to be a salt that is whole and unprocessed, free from added iodine or caking agents. I have a salt farm on the north shore of the Great Salt Lake where I harvest the best salt in the world. Shelley and I now have available a new condiment for flavoring your food with a 26% pure sol of salt called pHlavor. You will be amazed when you use this seasoning on your food and how it enhances the flavor of everything you are eating. You no longer need to use acidic condiments of soy sauce, vinegar, miso, tamari, and even Braggs Amino Acids to flavor your food when you have the first alkaline liquid spray salt condiment on the planet - pHlavor™
Let us know what you think as you start eating and enjoying the many benefits of the most important element next to oxygen - SALT in our latest creation called liquid salt pHlavor!
To keep our bodies running we need energy - not just any energy but "sustainable energy." To have "sustainable energy" that just keeps going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny you must have salt. Salt is the body's matrix system for transporting energy throughout the entire human organism. A deficiency of salt is equal to a deficiency of energy. You can't even create a thought or move the body without salt. I have discovered that the endocrine system, which includes the pineal gland, the pituitary, hypothalamus, thyroid, adrenals, pancreas and sex glands communicate through a matrix of salt - NOT HORMONES. Hormones are the acidic waste products of the endocrine glands using energy to communicate with each other to maintain homeostasis of the body fluids, energy needs and the autonomic functions of the body. The body needs no hormones - it needs "sustainable energy" that can only be created through a matrix of salt.
