Have you ever tasted your tears? Or your blood? If so, you know you are a salt water being since both taste salty.
In fact, salt is a very important component in the fluid between our cells - our extracellular fluid - and helps us maintain the proper liquid concentration in the body AND it helps with nerve transmission.
All salt is extracted from the sea or from underground salt stores that were formed millions of years ago such as the salt mines I visited in Austria. And it has been vilified for decades being blamed for causing high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney disease.
The real cause of high blood pressure:
While salt can temporarily raise blood pressure, it does not cause the clinical condition of high blood pressure or hypertension.
We know from the amazing work of Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer that high blood pressure is most often caused by a fluid conflict. Huh?
Yes, any kind of conflict shock that occurs with a fluid (but not with blood): water in the basement, thunderstorms, alcoholism (yours or someone else's), insulin shots, a near drowning, incontinence, a fire hose, etc.
High blood pressure is actually a back up system to support our kidneys. Interested in learning more? Please let me know! I can go into depth in the next GNM Conversations.
A smaller amount of clinical high blood pressure or hypertension is due to feeling overwhelmed. I can cover that in a GNM Conversation, as well.

The bottom line:
Salt is important and should be consumed in the amount your body requires. Need help figuring that out? I'm available for private consultations to help you determine how much is good for you, which foods to consume and which to avoid, and to help you resolve your fluid conflict. Contact me if you're interested!
In the meantime, if you ever travel to Austria, I highly recommend visiting the Hallstadtt area.
