These 3 Natural Types of Salt Prove Not All Salts Are Created Equal

different-salts

Not all food items are the same. There are bad sweeteners, and there are sweeteners that don’t harm the body. The same thing can be said for salts. When you consume a lot of salt in you diets, you increase your risk of developing high blood pressure, reduced kidney function, or other forms of heart disease. You don’t need to douse everything you eat in regular table salt. You can get that salty flavor by only using a small amount of the salts listed in this article. Not only do they enhance the flavor of your food, they also bring a host of nutrients!

 

How can you discern the bad salts from the good salts? There are more and more salts hitting the market nowadays, so we are presenting you with three ones that you can always rely on.

1. Naturally Dried Sea Salt

Most foods are healthy in their natural state, and the same thing can be said for salt. Naturally dried sea salt is salt that has been made from natural seawater evaporation. This natural process allows the salt to retain a ton of essential trace minerals, which regular tables salts don’t have because of the refining process. The only concern with using unrefined, natural sea salt is whether or not it comes from a clean, uncontaminated source. Pacific sea salt from New Zealand or Hawaiian sea salt are great options. New Zealand waters may actually be cleaner than Hawaiian waters though. People in New Zealand have actually been mining for salt, and they created areas below sea level to dry the salt from the ocean. Some of those fields are still used today.

 

2. Pink Himalayan Salt

Pink Himalayan salt is a very popular salt in the culinary world. This rock salt is mined in the ancient salt beds of the Himalayas, so you can taste history when you season your food. Ok, maybe not, but you don’t have to worry about contamination because of how old the salt beds are. Himalayan salt, much like naturally dried sea salt, contains beneficial trace minerals and it looks pretty because it’s pink, which is due to the presence of oxide. Health studies have shown that pink Himalayan salt can help improve the body’s pH balance because it contains about 84 different minerals and trace elements.

3. Black Lava Salt

Hawaiian black lava salt is incredible. The name may seem slightly intimidating, or as though it isn’t meant for food, but the salt actually gets the color from the volcanoes. Not only does it mean the salt has activated charcoal, it also means that there is a heightened flavor profile. Aside from adding a somewhat smokey flavor, the activated charcoal helps to cleanse the body and improve digestive health. This means that you reap the benefits of activated charcoal every time you sprinkle this salt on your food!

    Q: Thanks for the great web site! MY question is what's the best way to get sodium. I thought un-refined sea salt was the best, but the salt article says "eat this salt only if you must." The great thing about pure sea salt is that it all or almost all the minerals the body needs! So what's the best way to get all the mineral and to stay in balance? Also is there a way to get Epsom salt that is sodium sulfate not magnesium sulfate? Is it a good idea to bath in the "good" Epsom salt.

    A:

    You're welcome, Beloved!

    The best way to get sodium is via vegetables (i.e. celery).

    Sea salt is great source of sodium, but its a secondary source as it has to be processed from ocean water. Absent the process, it would not be available.

    But it does provide minute amounts of trace elements.

    In re Epsom salt, I haven't been able to find the sodium one.

    I stopped using Epsom salt many years ago.

    You could bath in the good Epsom salt, but sea salt is far better and more natural.

    Q: Is sea salt and warm water a good natural laxative? If so how often do you recommend the use of sea salt for elimination? I was reading The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and it gives this recommendation, along with drinking lemon water mixed with organic syrup and cayenne pepper. Is it safe to give myself an enema 2xs per day using a hot water bottle filled with fresh squeezed organic lemon and distilled water? Asking this because Bzod had me to listen to 88.3 today here in Cincinnati and the guy (Mike) was telling how he does this regularly and has great results.

    A:

    Yes, sea salt in water is a mild laxative!

    You can do it as often as you FEEL the need to drink or take it. 

    You can also consume the Master Cleanse (cayenne, maple syrup, lemon juice) if you choose. You can drink this as much as you like depending on how you feel.

    And yes, you can perform enemas 2X a day! Enemas are very helpful for health!

    Yes, it is! Herbs are better!

    Q: Dasani water, if I remember correctly, was banned from the U.K. It contains salt as well as potassium chloride. Essentia contains calcium chloride, as well as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate, dipotassium phosphate. Are all the ingredients in Essentia safe? One would have do an independent test on the water. Dasani is crap and I no longer drink Essentia but it would be my brand of choice of bottled water if I was to purchase water again.

    Q: My son has been presented with tonsil stones. Some of the literature recommended salt water gargles. One recommended fenugreek tea. I was wondering what you might have available to rid him of this. Thanks!

    A:

    You should do the salt water gargle as well as the fenugreek tea but the problem stems from diet (especially refined grains). Go more fruits and vegetables in his diet! Make sure he chews his food well too! Give all of this a try!

    Q: I would like to know if what I'm doing is okay. This is way before we found dherbs site and the products on the internet. We read on the internet that drinking a teaspoon of natural black sea salt or any sea salt in 32oz warm water every morning is good for bowel movement. We have been doing it for awhile now. Is it too much to take it with your products? I lost some weight after my FULL BODY DETOX but not too much on my stomach. What do you recommend l should use to get rid of the tummy area? I bought FIBROID BUSTER TEA I am I drinking it because l feel there is Fibroids down there. Should l also continue taking my BUNNY RABBIT formula with Fibroid tea? In my last email l mentioned my husband had mild stroke. Now he's having spasms all over his body especially when he's sleeping at night. Why is he having it and what else can he use for that? We are using all these wonderful products on the inside and still have un-even skin. Is it okay to use AMBI products for more youthful skin then detox every four months? If not, when are we going to see your skin products on the market?

    A:

    We don't recommend the drinking of sea salt. For tummy reduction: exercise (perform abs, sit ups) and take BOWEL MOVER and WEIGHT RELEASE FORMULA. You can take your herbs and tea together. No big deal! Spasms? Clearly the â€HEALING CRISIS†(read the article by this same title). The skin will improve in time. Don't focus on it!

    Q: I have been taking 35% hydrogen peroxide baths also with Sea Salt and the antiviral drops but I am not sure if I am still oxygenating my body enough? What percentage of the peroxide is being absorbed into my system when I soak for 50 - 60 minutes daily? The hair on my body has all turned golden due to the peroxide I believe? I have also been drinking green tea thru the detox. I also wanted to seek you advice on drinking White tea or licorice tea. I have read that the acid found in licorice tea kills off the herpes virus? If your advice is to take the tea, can I do it along with the FULL BODY DETOX or ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and what dosage should I use?

    A:

    OF COURSE YOU ARE! NEARLY HALF OF IT! THE LONGER YOU SOAK, THE BETTER! WITHOUT A DOUBT! HOW MUCH PEROXIDE PER BATH ARE YOU USING? THIS IS OKAY! YOU CAN TAKE THE TEA DOING THE DETOX AND AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE.

    Q: I purchesed both the FULL BODY DETOX and the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. During week 3 of the Detox, I had a significant herpes breakout on by buttocks. Therefore, I opened the anti-viral kit and started doing the bath with the sea salt and the oil etc, and used it all up with in a week. Maybe I used too much but everything healed up well. Now I am into the first week of the Anti-Viral kit and on day 3 a small breakout started, but I am out of the Oil and roll on. Do you have a suggestion of something else I can put into the bath water besides the sea salt? I have some tea tree oil. I tried to purchase some Melissa oil, but could not find it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    A:

    Use tea tree oil, lavender oil, etc. in your bath water. Add hydrogen peroxide (1 cup) as well. You can oil down with OZ OIL after the bath!

    Q: My two year-old son is not circumcised and his foreskin is not pulling back is there anything I can do to get his skin to stretch without getting him circumcised because I really don't want to do that. And are there any bath remedies to keeping it clean, right now I give him sea salt baths and thinking about using hydrogen peroxide. Also, It keeps getting red and swollen I gave him antibiotics because it hurts when he urinates. If you could, could you possibly recommend something I could get from a health food store I can't afford to cleanse his body right now.

    A:

    Don't act too fast; sometimes it takes a while before the skin begins to become elastic. The child is only 2. You can clean his foreskin with warm water, sea salt, and tea tree oil (5-8 drops in the bowl of water or bath water) and you can add 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide if you like. If the skin is red and swollen it's inflamed. Start applying Dherbs.Com HEALING SKIN OIL and this should facilitate healing. Antibiotics are harming the child. He doesn't need antibiotics! Please read our article on "DANGERS OF ANTI-BIOTICS". He'll be alright!

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!

    Q: I just started the Weight Release Kit & Regimen today, and I am wondering if it is better to take the herbs on an empty stomach or with food? Or does it even matter?

    A:

    Take herbs after eating is best! In regards to sea salt, 12 ounces = 1 box!
