This is the commonly-used
mass-produced refined white salt.
Refined white table salt can cause
excess fluid in body tissue, which can contribute to rheumatism, arthritis,
gout, kidney stones, and M.E.
To make refined white salt have a
longer shelf life, it often contains traces of highly dangerous fluorine /
chlorine additives used in the bleaching and drying process, in order to make
it look more attractive to consumers.
To make refined white salt easier to
shake out, added into it is aluminium hydroxide, despite the fact that this
mineral deposits in the brain and is a possible cause of Alzheimer's disease.
Refined white table salt does not
contain the 80+ trace minerals that unrefined salt does. Even worse, it
is really bad for your body! Don't ingest this refined white salt and whatever

Look for Celtic Sea Salt or
Himalayan Sea Salt, which are free of additives and chemicals. These are

Sea Salt originates from the primal
seas of millions of years ago, where life began. Dried by the sun at a time
where pollution did not exist, this is totally pure and contains every mineral
and trace element found in the human body.
Despite what we have been led to
believe, salt is equally as important to the human body as water. As long as
you are drinking enough water, salt is absolutely essential for the body to
generate hydroelectric energy, maintain good blood chemistry, balance the correct
amount of water in our blood and cells, aid digestion and allow our nervous
system and muscles to function normally. Without salt you would not be able to
think nor act.
Obviously, we are not talking about
refined table salt! Buy the right sort of salt - don't 'a-salt' your body
- stay healthy!
