Are You Still Using Table Salt?

Our bodies need salt, it is essential to our survival, however the salt that most people are consuming is causing more harm then good.Did you know that the common cooking or table salt consists of sodium chloride, iodine and chemicals heated to extreme temperatures that change its natural chemical structure.

The body spends huge amounts of vital energy to metabolize table salt by surrounding the unnatural sodium chloride molecules with precious water from our cells in order to neutralize it.  According to Dr. Mercola, DO  this loss of cell water due to consumption of table salt can lead to diseases and conditions like cellulite, kidney & bladder stones, gout, and  arthritis & rheumatism.

So, ditch the table salt and opt for natural salts like sea salt,  Himalayan salt, or rock salt.  My personal favorite is Himalayan salt, the benefits of which I will go through in my next blog.
