Dr. Brownstein, author of Salt Your Way to Health, says – “Lower your salt intake? No way!” Dr. Brownstein analyzes a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

For years, I have been lecturing and writing about the nonsensical argument the conventional powers-that-be claim that lowering salt in the diet will reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

…The recent JAMA (November 23/30, 2011) study found the lowest rate of cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular death, heart attack, stroke, congestive heart failure and non- cardiovascular death occurred when the sodium intake was 4-6,000mg/day. Lower and higher intakes were found to increase a compositd of all the outcomes studied (in a near linear fashion). You read that right; lower and higher salt intakes were all associated with worse outcomes.

I use Celtic Sea Salt and Redmond’s Real Salt, as recommended by Dr. Brownstein’s office, where I am a patient.

    ‘Tis true, we’ve been fed a bunch of bull about salt and its efficacy. This past year I came upon this site and bought the Himalayan salt and so happy with the results. If you buy this product which comes into large unrefined grains, you must make ‘sole’ with it. I keep the sole by my stove and use on vegies, whatever. Often take a spoonful in my mouth when near the kitchen for I know it provides me with a zillion minerals i wouldn’t get otherwise. Quoting from their web page here it says that,
    “Himalayan salt is pure, hand-mined salt found naturally; deep within the pristine Himalayan Mountains. Crystallized more than 200 million years ago, ancient sea beds were covered by volcanic lava, protecting the salt from modern-day pollution, and lending to the belief that Himalayan Pink salt is the purest salt to be found on earth.” Check this url for more..

    I buy the crystal chunks as they dissolve faster when i make sole, but more and more gourmet restaurants are using the slabs or chunks. I formerly used regular sea salt for a long time, but will never go back to even health store sea salt. There is sea salt and then there is real SEA SALT. It is more expensive but you only get what you pay for. To learn how to make sole once you buy this fantastic salt, ck this site for the ‘how to make sole’..

    This Himalayan salt has a pink cast making it lovely viewing in a clean jar, but when it dissolves into the ‘sole’ it tends to lose the color. Every year I try to add something new to my reportoire of good health, and am happy that I learned about this in January 2011….good health to you and bon appetit…also read about its spa and bath related qualities in addition to the usual culinary and gourmet uses…can’t go wrong on trying this out.
