    About 2 months ago I had the following symptoms;
    1- Tiny twitches in arms and legs (had this for few years)
    2- Often dizzy when standing up
    3- high blood pressure for days at a time
    4- woke up in middle of the night a number of times with high heart rate (95) & high BP (189/103)
    5- dizzy sometimes when I played table tennis.
    6- often had muscle cramps in middle of night.

    A number of holistic docs didn’t help. Then I heard a podcast with Dr. DiNicolantonio about salt.
    Being mostly in ketosis the last 3-4 years, I should have had more salt; my bad!
    After increasing my salt (not the table salt crap) to at least 1 teaspoon a day. ALL of the above symptoms disappeared. Can’t see any tiny twitches, haven’t woken up with high BP, no more night crmps, etc. Last visit to doc was 1 ½ weeks ago and BP was 120/70. (I’m 73 going on 25 )

    Now, I’m reading his book – “The Salt Fix”. It seems like we’ve benefitted from our gumint’s advice on salt the same as we did with cholesterol and saturated fat.

    I've talked about the need for salt with nnEMF for a long time.....they more nnEMF you get the less salinity winds up in your CSF and the more collateral effects you'll get. The reason is that vasopressin mediates many of the effects via POMC and VP ties to water and salinity of the CSF. You won't read that in the Salt Fix.

    Then I'll need even more salt due to the high nnEMF from the water pipe going under my living room & dining room. At the floor level it can go over 100mG in the summertime. I measured it at 5 times higher than standing directly under the high tension power lines (about a mile away from my house).
    I deeply regret that there's no shielding for this ELF magnetic field. (We're trying to find a place in Fl).
    I bought the magnetico about 2 months ago, do you think using 25 DDW would help also?
    P.S. I've written a poetry book, but I would not be able to find the words to thank you enough for what you do.

    That's scary, it's a good thing that you intend moving:)

    I add about 10 grams of Redmond Real salt per day to my food (food mostly without salt added).

    Been considering salt for some time.
    I crave it, but not sure of pros or cons.. my body used to crave large slices Guinness Chocolate Cake with a pint of Haagen-dazs dark chocolate ice cream too. Maybe I just needed magnesium.

    I have that book, The Salt Fix: Why the Experts Got It All Wrong--and How Eating More Might Save Your Life by Dr. James DiNicolantonio ... happy to keep salt and saturated fat in my diet. The book is compelling and I believe it is needful. I mostly use Real (brand) mined salt and sometimes mix with Celtic and, or Himalayan salts. A few years back I was using two regional mineral salts OBX salt and JQ Dickinson salts perhaps I'll will go back to those for a while as well. Salt in water and or Sole has helped my pain from time to time. Sole (pronounced Solay) is essentially water that has been fully saturated with a natural salt.
    Not sure about the detoxification effects or all the claims.

    Yes, "The Salt Fix" is a great little book. But can't remember if it talks about the fluoride in Himalayan pink or black salt.
    Apparently the darker the salt, the more fluoride it contains. I did not know that pink and black salt have "more fluoride
    than you'll ever get in water" … at least that's according
    to Jason Bawden Smith, who I do respect. I always used pink Himalayan, but will now have to seek another options, since
    fluoride reduces your redox potential … that seems well known and accepted.

    Fluoride in natural salt isn't the "fluoride" added to city water.

    Is natural fluoride have a dielectric effect and thereby potentially lower redox?

    Dunno but if you get enough sun and CT doesn't matter if it did.

    Thanks for comment. Would prefer to keep using pink Him salt but not sure now ... have to do more research on it.

    Jack has stated before that he doesn't like pink salt. Something about it being more like a rock and your body not using it well. I use Fleur De Sel.

    Thanks for info ... interesting ... not sure I can get Fleur De Sel in New Zealand but will investigate ... can probably order, but
    heavy stuff so may not be worthwhile to ship. Appreciate your comments.
