Default The Cause Of All Diseases

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7RBp...eature=related

I found this video to be very interesting, especially at about 10:30 where he says our bodies are not designed to run on sugar, but are designed to run on salt. That is why all bodily fluids are salty.

The average (150 pound) person should be consuming about 14 grams of salt per day (bigger people need more) instead of the recommended gram or two, and this should be mineral salt, such as Redmonds from Utah, and not the processed table salt that has been stripped of all its minerals.

This whole energy thing is logical, and ties directly into the video posted yesterday by Arrow.

The biggest complaint from most people is that they are tired all the time, and just don't have energy, so it makes sense they are too acidic, mostly from eating junk food, sugar, etc., don't drink enough clean water, don't get the variety of minerals (and vitamins) they need, and don't get nearly enough salt, due to doctors saying too much salt is bad..

The diet, together with supplements, along with a regular detox program is the key to good health, and listening to the doctor is suicide.

Thanks pinball. It was an interesting video. I was a bit baffled that it said cooked vegetables were very acidic to the body but grains were alkaline.

14 g. of salt is about a Tablespoon. Fresh lemon squeezed in purified water with some sea salt is so refreshing and alkalizing. The acid in the lemon can make your teeth sensitive so watch for that.

A book I'm currently reading called, "Electrical Nutrition" by Denis and Shelley Hiestand states that foods have various electrical value. The quicker and easier a food rots the higher it's electrical value. He said meat especially red meat gives us more nutrients, more minerals, and more energy in exchange for less work by our digestive system than any other known food. This is followed closely by raw fresh fruit and berries. Then come green leafy begetables, followed by the root crops. I thought that was interesting. He said to forgo grains. Nature made them to be basically unrottable.

Sugar - it is purely evil.

While "listening to the doctor is suicide" may be true but salt intake is the least of the worry.

14 g of processed salt is a lot to be consuming. Mostly because "salt" requirements come from so many foods that we eat that contain natural sodium. Let not even think about the amount of sodium in processed foods - eek!

I recall that in one of William Campbell Douglass II, M.D Daily Dose articles he was also saying the same thing.

If you are avoiding iodized salt then you absolutely must supplement with iodine...lugols iodine is best. You will develop many chronic diseases if you dont. It is a huge risk you are taking. There is risk enough in decreasing good natural salt, never mind cutting out iodine.
Lack of iodine causes:
cyst diseases
hypothryoidism
contributes to breast and prostate cancer
(and yes, men do get breast cancer)
it nourishes the brain and master hormonal glands
and will help prevent toxic halogens from moving in
like fluroide and bromide and chlorine.

As far as Iodine goes i have a iodine mouthwash that i use here and there, so i guess that must be absorbed minimally by my body...

But i dont avoid salt in the sense of going to work lets say and getting staff food and not eating it because it has salt in it, so i do get salt, i just never add any, and i just never put any when im at home and when i do its strictly himalayan...

Now as far as minerals go himalayan salt should have like 80+ differend minerals that the body needs, but i dont really know about the iodized salt part, i would assume himalayan is iodized, but i dont know...

I've read so many times about iodine here on the forums in all kinds of threads so i know its a big thing like there's a whole science behind it, i need to check that out when i get in my research health mood, which is often

But im not worried about ''salt deficiencies'', i get enough for my 58 kilos...i would say

The only difference between now and up untill a few days ago is that now when i add himalayan salt at home in foods, i wont be limiting the amount, i will just add as much as i want and a little more often...

Even if you weren't, you should, and you should.







*Avoid processed salt
*Supplement iodine





Processed salt is garbage with very little iodine.

I always wonder about the amount for I tend to overdo. The Iodoral is 12.5 mg tablets and I have been known to take up to four at a time.

I can't keep running for iodine loading tests...is there an easy way to determine needs? I have a multinodular goiter that was scheduled for CANCER surgery and Ibacked out. I have had this since 06. Had the uptake/scan right at the beginning (which now I know I should NOT have had). FNA done by u/s twice - inconclusive. Bloods are "normal range". I feel ok.

My salt is Celtic Sea Salt and has been for some time now. I do supplement here and there with Vit C, selenium, etc. My ONLY complaint is SEVERELY dry skin...

Much guesswork about Iodine can be put to rest by reading "Iodine, Why you Need it, Why You Can't Live Without It' by David Brownstein M.D. After reading this and other material, plus knowing 'bout the Fukoshima fallout that will not abate in our lifetimes, I settled on one Iodoral 50 per day. The best way to test is also discussed in the book. I was purchasing from Brownstein's Practice, Center for Holistic Medicine, but funds are scarce for me, cheaper at Iherb.com. Anyone wanting to purchase from Iherb for the 1st time can contact me for a referral discount code.

According to Dr Donald Miller, 12mg is enough daily, once saturation is reached and saturation takes 50mg for three months. tablets are expensive. For the cost of 50mg for three months, one can equip themselves to make a lifetime supply of Lugols solution.

Cousin Tony talks about a simple skin test for iodine saturation in his video on making Lugol's iodine. I may have posted a link somewhere, but an IXQuick search for 'tony herbalist lugols' will net the utube vid.

I have been taking 50mg for over a year!!! The energy has been phenomenal, I must say. But they ARE quite costly and now that I am in extreme budgetary times, I will look into making the Lugol's.

Thank you SG!! Now I wish I could grow my own tasty and free coffee beans!

Celtic sea salt helps combat bromine accumulation, therefore, it naturally helps you conserve iodine, according to Dr Brownstein. Dr Brownstein takes 100mg of iodine a day.

Salts in their most accessible forms are Cell Salts.
Look inot Shuesslers Cell Salts.
There is a salt for every type of tissue
Sodium chlorite is only one and if you limit
your concern to only this one you will miss.
