So many think it is evil & should be avoided, DRs want to rid it from our lives in the name of health. But should it be considered evil? should we not use salt?

Low salt diet, really? Raise your hand if you have been told to restrict or stop using salt? Did you ever wonder how salt can be so bad, after all our bodies need salt, if we are dehydrated what do they give us, & IV with saline solution in it (yeap salt) before we were born we lived in a sack filled with salt, yeap that bad ole salt.The baby can not live without the salt, if you are restricting the salt then where will your body get it from?

Salt is a vital nutrient. No woman, expectant or otherwise, can live
without it. Neither can the unborn baby, who receives sodium from his mother’s blood stream, through the placenta. Sodium requirements vary
widely depending on activity level, environmental conditions, personal
health, and many more factors. Pregnancy is one condition where the body
actually requires MORE salt in order to remain health. Hypertension and Salt Restriction (this info is for pregnancy & even for when not pregnant,

Why Salt? Or is it the kind of salt?
If you DR tells you to cut out salt for health do you research it?
I agree with cutting out table salt/iodized salts but our bodies need salt, & many not only use natural unrefined salts, they take it as well for health, & many have discovered the very things they have been told salt causes natural salt cures. oh & as a plus natural unrefined sea salt has naturally occurring iodine instead of a chemical version like table salt.

Our Bodies need Salt, it needs to be natural & unrefined salt but restricting our salt intake causes many health issues.Every cell in our body needs salt. Our bodies rely on salt to keep good bone density, proper circulation and stabilized blood sugar levels. But how could something so wonderful and natural become a poison? There are a few common misconceptions on the dangers of salt.
Table Salt or “Iodized Salt” is not a healthy naturally occurring rock, crystal or sea salt. It is a manufactured type of sodium called sodium chloride with added iodide.
Iodine in salt available at grocery stores, restaurants and in practically all processed foods, have synthetic chemicals added to them. These chemicals may include manufactured forms of iodide, sodium solo-co-aluminate, fluoride sodium bicarbonate, toxic amounts of potassium iodide, anti-caking agents and aluminium derivatives. Table salt has also been bleached. Unfortunately, most table salt is not only unhealthy, but is toxic to the body and should never be considered as a source of healthy iodine. Why is sea salt good for you (And Table salt is not)
Table salt is a highly refined & goes through a process that removes the magnesium and other trace minerals. Because salt is naturally hygroscopic, (easily retaining water), aluminum compounds and other additives such as silica are added to the already refined salt. The natural iodine is destroyed during the refining process, and is added back as potassium iodide, in often toxic levels. Dextrose (a sugar) is added as a stabilizer which interacts with the salt and changes its color. A bleaching agent is used to whiten the salt.
The processed white salt lacking in trace minerals. people in the natural health work call it death salt. Real salt, on the other hand, such as “dirty” sea salt or pink Himalayan salt, is loaded with mineralsAnd don’t be fooled by claims of “sea salt” in grocery stores.
