Let there be people and make them salt free to have them happy heart! YES!! Beautiful and dead. Makeup anyone? This will be a fiery post so buckle your seat belt!
By some medical professionals in the media–who shall remain nameless since we all know whom we are talking about–salt has become the black sheep of our nation–as well as other nations since they copy us. Salt is said to be bad for us. Reduce salt! Eat salt substitutes! For healthy and happy heart stop eating salt!
Guess what? Without salt your heart will not work, your brain will not work, your lungs will not work. You actually will be dead. You may have a gorgeous heart when they open your cadaver and they can frame it! But not eating salt will kill you. Furthermore, you may have a perfectly healthy heart that you may destroy by not eating enough salt!
Remember when you were born? No? You have heard of the amniotic fluid filled sac that bursts as the baby is born right? Well it is not water. Nope. It is salt water and some other minerals. Have you tasted your blood lately? Hopefully not but if you will, it is salt water that is red with some other stuff in it. Our bodies are made up of 70% water it is said; no, our body is actually 70% salty water with other minerals that form electrolytes.
If you end up in the ER, the transparent liquid they pump into your blood via IV is not water; it is either saline (salt water) or electrolytes (salt, potassium, water, magnesium, and some other elements). So when I hear the statement on TV “salt is bad” for us, I would like to yell and tell everyone that
NO! It is too much salt that is bad for us!
What is too much salt? If you have developed hypertension (high blood pressure), that means you may have eaten too much salt relative to water and potassium (may have since it can also be genetic). You can prevent a non-genetic hypertension by eating balanced ratio of salt with water and potassium. You may even revert non-genetic hypertension by eating the right amount of salt with the right amount of water and the right amount of potassium!
Please! Enough of this no salt nonsense! We now have mothers who feed no salt to their developing children as young as age 3, who then end up with underdeveloped brain, migraine, or worse! Why do we need salt? Salt creates a voltage differential between inside and outside of the brain cells to allow the sodium-potassium pumps to work. No salt, not enough voltage, no pumping, no cell alive. Is that what we want?
