Once refined, table salt is energetically dead and the body needs to use
its own life force to incorporate this dead substance somehow into itself. Dead sodium is abundant around cancer cells. It
is also inferior to build stable bones (one third of the sodium in the human body is stored in the bones). The body recognizes
table salt as an aggressive cellular poison, an unnatural substance, and wants to eliminate it as quickly as possible in order
to protect itself. This causes a constant overburden on our organs of excretion. In almost every preserved product, salt is
used as part of the preservation process. So, by adding common table salt to the already-salted food, the body receives more
salt than it can get rid of.
The result of consuming common table salt is the formation of overly acidic
edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. That’s why doctors tell us to avoid
salt. For every 1 gram of sodium chloride that cannot be eliminated, the body uses 23 times the amount of its own cell water
to neutralize the salt. If the sodium chloride is still too high, re-crystallization of the table salt occurs as the body
uses available non-degradable animal proteins (as those found in milk), which also have no value and cannot be broken down
and eliminated. The body uses these proteins to produce uric acid in order to get rid of the excess salt. As the body cannot
dispose of uric acid, it binds itself with the sodium chloride to form new crystals that are deposited directly in the bones
and joints. This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatism such as arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones.
This re-crystallization is the body’s band-aid solution for the cells and organs in order to protect the body from irreparable
damage of irresponsible food intake. But in the long run, it poisons the system because those substances cannot be disposed
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, refined salt is extremely yang
or rigidifying and structuring. This correlates to the findings of western medicine that show that excessive table salt leads
to hardened deposits in the body, stiffening joints and blood vessels. If we regularly consume table salt, cravings for sugar
and/or alcohol are amplified. Replacing table salt with crystal salt has helped many people
overcome sugar cravings and binge eating of sweets. Some of the more successful programs for healing people from alcoholism
in Europe do not allow their clients any table salt in their diets. This does not mean that table salt consumption is the
only reason for these addictions, only that they become amplified through the extreme yang effect of table salt. There are
always emotional factors at play in addictions but to overcome them is made much easier when the substance one is addicted
to is no longer needed to balance out other extreme substances.
Sea salt is gained from seawater through
evaporation under the sun. If it is left in its natural state after this drying process, it is a wholesome product. Such unrefined
sea salt is gray in color and has 64-72 elements in balanced proportions. However, most sea salts on the market, including
those that are used in various health food products, are still highly refined. Any sea salt that is white is highly refined
and not recommendable. Unrefined sea salt has some life force and very different electrical properties than refined salt.
Before crystal salt came on the market, it was the best salt available. The increasing pollution of oceans of course is problematic
when we want to use sea salt.
