Good Afternoon, Natives!
As the week comes to a close and we are greeted with this weekend filled with some earthy Full Moon energy, I want to shed a little more light on something that we all know and love.
Have you been feeling a little...salty lately?
It happens to the best of us! But not in the way you'd expect. Although salt is one of the quickest and best ways to season your food, not all salt is created equal.
It's quite a common thing in our society to hear of many cases of high blood pressure, diabetes and the like. Unfortunately, this isn't something that should be normalized at all!
The common denominator with these health concerns can be traced back to the kind of salt we are using in our food. White table salt, like Morton's Table Salt as an example, is iodized salt that also contains toxins such as sodium chloride, flouride, and other bleaching agents, as well. It has also been said that regular table salt is the SAME salt that is used to coat the roads during wintery conditions. Yikes, people!
The toxins found in table salt cause bloating, water retention and heart rate elevation as your body is working hard to process and clear the table salt from your major organs. When it's consumed on a regular basis, it's easy to see how it can manifest into things like high blood pressure and diabetes that further leads to heart attacks and strokes.
It's also a good idea to be careful of "seasoned salt" brands!
Our bodies deserve to have a little tender loving care. Being overworked doesn't feel good to anyone, not even your organs.
So what is a much better alternative? And will it be just as flavorful as regular salt?
As your holistic health guide at Life Body Naturals, I encourage you to think about the nutritional value that can be added to your diet with just one small switch. And that switch is literally a small change in color.
Pink Himalayan salt to the rescue!
Little do you may know, pink Himalayan salt has been the right under your nose this whole time!
Naturally created by Earth deep in the Himalayan Mountain mines in Pakistan over billions of years, this very specific kind of sea salt contains over 84 minerals, including vitamins such as magnesium, iron, calcium, and potassium. It encourages healthy cell function, increases bone strength, balances your Ph and electrolyte balance, aids in the absorption of nutrients, lowers blood pressure and improves digestion. And to answer your question of whether it still provides flavor to your food..yes indeed! As a matter of fact, due to its potency, you can use way less amounts than with table salt, which also helps to lower your sodium intake!
Due to the emergence of its positive health benefits, pink Himalayan salt to can be found in many kinds of grocery stores at reasonable prices!
Here's another bonus about this wonderful salt: Did you know that Pink Himalayan salt can also be enjoyed to enhance your home's atmosphere as well? Himalayan salt lamps are a great addition to any room, as they reduce allergic symptoms, boost mood, and help to transmute electronic smog.
What an amazing way to heal yourself from the inside out!
