11* Salt is a vitally needed element in the treatment of diabetics. Salt helps balance the sugar levels in the blood and reduces the need for insulin in those who have to inject the chemical to regulate their blood sugar levels. Water and salt reduce the extent of secondary damage associated with diabetes. When people neglected their daily water quota, salt retention mechanism in the body is increased, and hypertension is detected. Not knowing it was water shortage which first caused (etiology of hypertension) high blood pressure the patient was advised to reduce or avoid salt or used substitute like "pan salt" or other artificial 'salt' . Now the body under shortage of water and salt had no alternative but to increase sugar level to compensate for energy, especially for the brain. Thus, manifested the symptom of high sugar in the blood , they label you another name "diabetic". The actual term should be water and salt deficiencies. Just increase water and salt intake , and you solve the so-called 'mysteries.'
12* Salt is vital for the generation of hydroelectric energy in all of the cells in the human body. Salt is used for local power generation at the sites of energy need by the cells. Your brain need the most energy.
13* Salt is vital to the communication and information processing of nerve cells the entire time that the brain cells work -- from the moment of conception to your death.
14* Salt is vital for the absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract.
15* Salt is vital for the clearing the lungs of mucus plugs and sticky phlegm, particularly in asthma, emphysema and cystic fibrosis sufferers.
16* Salt on the tongue will stop persistent dry coughs. Drink two glasses of water and put salt on your tongue and see the persistent coughs reduce and stop. Drug-based cough drops are inferior to the natural water and salt treatment, anytime.
17* Salt is vital for clearing up catarrh and sinus congestion.
18* Salt is vital for the prevention of gout and gouty arthritis.
19* Salt is essential for the prevention of muscle cramps. Your weakness in the legs also signalling you are salt deficiency.
20* Salt is vital in preventing excess saliva production to the point that it flows out of the mouth during your sleep. Needing to mop up excess saliva indicates salt shortage in your body. Just increase salt intake and you just solve the "drooping" problem. How about young children (1-5 years old) saliving excessively? Well, feed them more fruits because all fruits come with their respective proportioned sodium with distilled water content. They will take natural liking to fruits anytime, especially sweet fresh fruits. Avoid those aspartame or artificial sweeteners because these ingredients are the real culprits to the body healthy functions in the long run.
21* Osteoporosis, in a major way, is the result of salt and water shortage in the body. Long overdue of dehydration is taking place there.
22* Salt is absolutely vital to making the structure of bones firm.
23* Salt is vital for maintaining self-confidence and a positive self-image -- a serotonin controlled and melatonin-controlled " personality output."
24* Married couple only. Salt is vital for maintaining sexuality and libido. Avoid all drug-based hype sexuality enhancing products because they just make your body suffer more in the long run. Just drink a glass of water before your act.
25* Salt is vital for reducing a "double chin." Double chin is not because of genetic inheritance. I laughed when some one talk like that. When the body is short of salt, it means the body really is shortage of water. (Because the salt can hold the water in the body for infusion process; this infusion rate is only 0.001cm per second. Under infusion mode, your body is under normal pressure during cells activities.) The salivary glands sense the salt shortage and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that is needs for breaking down foods. Blood circulation to the salivary glands increases and the blood vessels become "leaky" in order to supply the glands with more water to manufacture saliva. This "leakiness " spills to areas beyond the glands themselves, causing increased bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks, and into the neck area. That is the reason most overweight people have "double chin". Obese people have their chin ' joined up' to their neck base and you cannot see their chin anymore. Just increase water intake, avoid other dehydrating liquids(caffeine, alcohol, artificial sweeteners), with proportionate salt and you solve the "double chin " or "chinless" problems.
26* Salt is vital for preventing varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and thighs.
27* Sea Salt (unrefined) contains about 80 minerals elements that the human body needs. Some of these elements are needed in trace(i.e., very little) amounts. Unrefined sea salt is a better choice of salt than other types of salt on the market. Ordinary table-salt that is bought/ sold in the supermarkets had been stripped of its companion elements and contain additive elements such as aluminum silicate to keep it powdery and porous. Aluminum is a very toxic element in our body nervous system. Have you seen people with involuntary movements/jerky/ uncontrollable twisting of muscles? That's nervous system dysfunctions. Aluminum is implicated as one of the primary causes of Alzheimer's diseases.
Choosing the right elements/foods can help you live a vibrant health and vitality life. So choose wisely. Have salt among yourselves. Use 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt for every 1250 ml of water drank. For every 1 kilogram of your present body weight , you need (at least) 41.32 ml of plain water.
