Salt Loading

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Taking iodine will chelate the other halogens. Salt loading can be used to increase the excretion rate of Bromide and minimize detox side-effects often experienced when supplementing with Iodine. Some of these detox (actually tox) symptoms are brain for, neck pain, bumps on forehead (bromine pimples)..

Chloride in salt binds with Bromide in the blood stream and then carry it out through the kidneys.

Unrefined Celtic sea salt, which contains a large variety of mineral salts, is best for detoxification, although table salt can be used if Celtic salt is not available to alleviate detox symptoms.
The Salt Loading Protocol:

1- Take 1/2 a teaspoon of unrefined Celtic sea salt in 1/2 cup of warm water.

2- Drink 12 ounces of purified or clean water.

Repeat this every 45-minutes until your first urination.

Discontinue salt loading after side-effects abate.

Notes:

Do not force yourself, this does not taste bad, if you find yourself gagging water it down more or add salt to food.

If your goal is to get rid of bromide, reduce brain fog and other halogen tox symptoms (due to the detox), but rather not follow the salt loading protocol, I recommend upping your Sea Salt intake, just drink plenty of water.

I recommend taking potassium if you find yourself upping the salt intake. Potassium should preferably be apple cider vinegar (ACV). Without potassium, hair “might” suffer.

Is Salt Good of Bad?

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Doctors and dietitians, along with the USDA dietary guidelines, and the American Heart Association (AHA) recommend eating a diet low in sodium to prevent hypertension, risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke; most allopathic doctors place their patients on low-salt diets, they have since the 1970′s.

Not all salts are created equal. Many in the “Raw Food” movement (which has some great ideas to offer) shun salt away and even call it a poison. They fail to differentiate the different types of salts, table salt might be thought of as poison (or unhealthy) while other salts that are healthier do exist. Some salts actually increase mortality as I will show below.

Salt is an essential nutrient, unlike sugar, people ate salt for eons. Historically, humans recognized it’s importance enough to use it as currency. Its reputation is found in phrases like “Worth his/her salt,” or “Not worth his/her salt”  since people were often paid in salt. In fact, the word salt is derived from the Latin salarium, or salary. In fact, you could die without salt. Like I said, you need salt, “the right kind of salt”.

Mainstream, table, restaurant, shaker and processed food salts are often mixed with anti-caking agents, many avoid salt all together in order to avoid these added chemicals. Salt takes a large portion of the mainstream American awareness. People think it is an unnecessary additive, and guided by their allopathic doctors and government dietary guidelines they seek products that are salt-free. The situation with salt is very similar to that with fat, most Americans seek fat-free products failing to recognize that not all fat is bad.

Like fat, salt is an essential nutrient to life. The food industry might have transformed most of the salt into an unhealthy form of salt, but this is not to say that salt is bad. This is the case with fat, protein, rice, etc.. Many foods that are very healthy and essential become denatured and poisoned when commercially processed and packaged.
