Exploding the Myth of the
Low Salt Diet
Don't Risk Your Health Even One More Day by Cutting Down on Salt . . .
Special 2009 Health Update
by Christopher Ruddy
Dear Newsmax Friend,
I don't salt my food anymore . . . At least, not with regular old table salt.
Yet I'm not on a low salt diet, either. I use plenty of salt to spice up my food — just not the dead, toxic stuff you probably have in your kitchen.
That's because of what I've discovered recently from Dr. David Brownstein, the medical editor of our latest Newsmax publication.
|Despite what you may have heard, a low salt diet will NOT significantly help you lower your blood pressure!|
When you ask him about the low salt diet recommended by most conventional doctors, even the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association, he says:
And here's just one reason why he says it . . .
For nearly everyone, a low salt diet does NOT lower blood pressure.
It's true. Even in those individuals with high blood pressure, the lowering effect is quite modest at best. Still, Dr. Brownstein will tell you that he learned in medical school the traditional party line that salt = hypertension (high blood pressure).
But he began researching the therapeutic use of salt when many of his patients did poorly on a low salt diet. Plus, many of them didn't remain on the diet because it made their food tasteless and dull.
About David Brownstein, M.D.
Dr. David Brownstein is a board-certified family physician and is one of the foremost American practitioners of holistic medicine.
He is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Wayne State University School of Medicine. Currently, he is the medical director of the Center for Holistic Medicine in West Bloomfield, Mich.
Dr. Brownstein has authored eight books on natural health:
- Drugs That Don't Work and Natural Therapies That Do!
- Overcoming Thyroid Disorders
- Overcoming Arthritis
- The Miracle of Natural Hormones
- The Guide to Healthy Eating
- Salt Your Way to Health
- Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can't Live Without It
- The Guide to a Gluten-Free Diet
In addition, Dr. Brownstein has lectured internationally to physicians and others about his success in using natural hormones, and nutritional and holistic therapies in his practice.
And when he began practicing a more holistic form of medicine, Dr. Brownstein was shocked to find that most of his patients were deficient in minerals, and suddenly . . .
He Made the Refined Salt Connection
What Dr. Brownstein realized was that refined or regular table salt has NO minerals.
And not surprisingly, those with chronic illness are often more mineral deficient than those who are comparatively well. Minerals such as magnesium, sodium, chloride, potassium, and magnesium are vital for life.
After researching various types of salt, Dr. Brownstein found the solution in the form of unrefined salt.
Unlike refined table salt, unrefined salt contains over 80 essential minerals.
He started recommending it to his patients — and a funny thing happened . . . When his patients began using unrefined salt as part of their holistic treatment regimen:
- Their mineral deficits improved . . .
- Those with high blood pressure began to see their numbers decrease . . .
- He noted that patients with immune and hormonal problems also began to get better . . .
How could this happen?
Without Salt, Life Itself Would Not Be Possible
Salt is as important to life as oxygen and water.
In fact, salt and water work together to do important work in your body, including stimulating your metabolism, helping you detoxify, and making sure your nerves, hormones and immune system function properly.
Yet the food industry has sold you a "bill of goods" on refined salt for the same reason they refine other products like sugar, flour, and oils — to maximize their profits.
For one thing, the refining process, which eliminates all of salt's life-sustaining properties, ensures that it won't go rancid. That salt can sit on the shelf forever, with no expiration date. This saves the food industry a heck of a lot of money.
And then there's marketing . . . Salt manufacturers have found that an "all-white" product appears cleaner and more appealing to you — the consumer.
But Everyone Says Salt is Bad for You . . .
Despite the fact that scientific research does not support the claims for low salt diets, even the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is getting into the act. It's now considering regulating salt as a dangerous substance!
The salt controversy is so full of half-truths and downright lies that Dr. Brownstein decided to tackle it head-on in the second issue of his Newsmax newsletter Natural Way to Health..
In this issue, "Exploding the Myths Around Salt and Your Health," you'll discover:
- Dr. Brownstein's personal recommendation for a healthful and effective brand of unrefined salt . . .
- How unrefined salt helps correct the dehydration issue so prevalent today (particularly important if you drink caffeinated coffee, tea, or soda) . . .
- What's actually in that salt you've been shaking onto your food? See why "pure" does NOT mean what you think it does . . .
- The little known link between salt and your body's pH (essential to balancing your delicate inner chemistry) . . .
- How much unrefined salt you should add to the water you drink each day . . .
- And much more . . .
In fact, Dr. Brownstein has researched the salt issue so thoroughly that he's written a book about it. And I'll show you how you can get this book FREE (along with 2 other of his best-selling books) in just a moment.
