A Matter Of Preference

September 10, 2012 by  

Dear Bob,

I have read that you recommend sea salt. I would like to have your take on Himalayan salt. I feel that Himalayan salt is even better than sea salt. I have had people tell me that their doctors tell them to stay away from salt, period. Those people are becoming sicker by the day. How can we inform people that they need some good salt daily in order to maintain good health?

Thank you,
Sandra V.

Dear Sandra,

I use Himalayan salt along with Celtic sea salt, but prefer Celtic because it is larger granules and slightly moist. Many health-food gurus recommend Himalayan over Celtic and vice versa, so it is a matter of personal preference. Salt is essential to our health. People should avoid ordinary table salt and sodium in processed foods.

Best wishes,

    Read an excellent article on NaturalNews360 about the “possibilities” of Sea Salt becoming more contaminated with .. fill in the blank. Although I enjoy the taste of Celtic choosing Himalayan wasn’t difficult. It doesn’t have the flavor but does contains the 84 essential minerals.

    What salt is not sea salt?

    • raw

      bromine, which is what most labels refer to as sodium. Good point though, all SALT is essentially sea salt.

        My point is that all salt is sea salt. I prefer “sea salt” over table salt for the taste. I do not however, eat sugars. And limit my carbs. In the coming SHTF, I want to be as healthy as I can be. My food stores reflect that. The only sugar I will have is to barter with.

      I may stand corrected but ordinary table salt is in no way related to sea salt !! Ordinary table salt is a manufactured product. On top of this it is processed using Potassium I think. Sea salt I read contains all enzymes essential for the human body. I wonder does this add credence to the view that we originated in the sea as single cell entities millions of years ago ? Also for the record, Himalayan salt is actually sea salt !! You sea the Himalayan mountains were at one time part of the sea bed, it was due to powerful geological forces that the mountains were created. So any salt found or harvested there today came directly from the sea.

    Himalayan salt is mined out of the Himalayan mountains. The salt was deposited there when the earth was formed, before man started poluting all the oceans with toxic waste. All the oceans are connected. My personal opinion.

    I use “Redmond Natural Trace Mineral” salt from Utah. I hear it is also used for livestock as it provides the you with all the natural trace minerals needed for your body metabolism. It has that “pink” color and is milder than kosher salt. I also use it in marinades and salt baths. Works well for me but is harder to get here in Colorado than the yuppie brands that are imported.

    Well…….the chemical name for salt in sodium cloride. Salt is salt. Lest you forget your body needs salt to survive. If the SHTF it won’t matter what kind of salt you have. Just have some.

    Even Costco sells Celtic and Himalayan salt now. Here is a link to their magazine which has an article on how salt is good for you.
