You may not have ever realized this, but not all salt is created equal. There is salt that is bad for the body, which would be our everyday table salt, and then there is salt that the body actually is deficient in and needs more of. Sodium chloride, which the element that is left after salt is chemically cleaned, is the main ingredient of table salt. Because the salt has been processed this is not its natural form, and the body recognizes it as a foreign thing. When regular salt is cleaned it is stripped of over 60 important trace minerals that we really need, then of course the manufactures add more chemicals to make it even worse for us.
So what kind of salt should we be eating? The two best kinds of salt to consume regularly are Himalayan Sea Salt and Celtic Salt. These forms of natural salts can do wonders for the body, and are essential to consume daily. Here are some of the amazing health benefits that you can receive from these salts according to Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, M.D.
-Salt is a strong antiseptic and antihistamine.
-Salt extracts excess acidity from our cells, especially our brain cells.
-Salt is necessary for the kidneys to excrete excess acid in the urine.
-Salt is crucial in the treatment of emotional and affective disorders.
-Salt is vital in cancer prevention and treatment.
-Salt helps regulate sleep.
-Salt helps balance blood sugar, and decreases the need for insulin.
Another great natural remedy is to gargle with luke warm water with these salts dissolved in the water, to kick a sore throat or nagging cough.
