    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, but I dropped Himalayan salt due to it having a higher flouride level. 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.

    What type of salt did you use to experience these wonderful changes? I have POTS and am always trying different brands.
  17. Hey everyone, I have used Celtic Sea Salt for over a decade now and love it.

    Its grey in colour so you recognise its unbleached, not washed out so minerals stay intact. Its dried in the sun and hand harvested, no chemicals used or added and no binders or filers.

    Readily available everywhere in Australia so would imagine NZ too. Mineral profile and analysis added so a really transparent company as well.

    I also love the acacia wooden salt box, just beautiful to use as well.

    Here is the link to the Australian site https://www.saltoftheearth.com.au/ where you can order online too.

    For what its worth I used to use pink Himalayan salt previously and thought it was fantastic until i learned it picks up heavy metals from the regions it is produced and because its mountainous they have to blast to get the salt so toxins included as well - possibly not all but i would say the cheaper, mass produced Himalayan salts may have this issue so i just don't use them at all since finding the Celtic Sea Salt - just be aware that some brands in supermarkets call salt 'celtic' but its been bleached becasue you see how white it is compared to the truly natural hand harvested ones that are grey so you will know what to buy.

    Here are a few good pointers from Salt of the Earth about how to tell the difference https://www.saltoftheearth.com.au/sea-salt/certification/.

    So Interesting. I like what you say about noticing the gray of the Celtic salt color. I wonder if that brand ships to the US. I think most people here use Selina Naturally - I would hope it has a similar mineral profile if you’ve had success with Salt of the Earth. I think it’s wild that pink salt has become such a fad, as if the Himalayas are the only place on earth to have health salt. I would. Think any true sea salt, even making it yourself, would be better than what’s found in a blasted salt cave.

    I do like Redmond sea salt, but I’m curious if the white color means it’s been bleached? Dr. Ettinger (who is a member on here) introduced me to Baja Gold Mexican Sea Salt, and when I use it it even tingles under the tongue a little, so that makes me feel like the mineral content is higher? I wonder.

  19. Hi @Taylor Freeman i don't know the Selina Naturally or Baja Gold, they both look great and both companies offer mineral analysis which is really transparent so you can do your own research.

    This was an interesting link on the Baja Gold site showing a comparison of salts but its the description i found interesting stating that Himalayan Pink Salt and Redmond salt are both mined salts which i assume require some sort of processing https://bajagoldseasalt.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Which-Salt-Is-Best.pdf.

    I think the main feature i would always look for is that its naturally dried in the sun and hand processed indicating it will have minimal human interference alongside the colur.
