The Body's Need For Salt

Sodium is given a very bad rap these days.  If you are talking about regular salt in the grocery store, yes, it is bad.  Man has taken salt the way God made it and processed it to death.  Instead of making your body healthier, it makes it sicker.  Everything that is highly processed is NOT good for your body.

When I was in the emergency room dying from a brain tumor, my sodium levels were 115 instead of 137 to 147.  I should have been dead with those levels.  Your body needs salt to live.  For the next three weeks, while I was waiting for brain surgery, I had to consume two tablespoons of salt a day and drink very little water to stay alive.  It was very difficult.

Dr. Marshall was the one who educated me on the need for good, air-dried sea salt, just the way God made it.  Not processed in any way.  Here are the benefits to consuming one teaspoon a day ~

Boosts the adrenal glands

Helps cure eczema

Increases stomach acid which helps digest food

Cures colic in babies when mom takes the salt

Helps with juvenile arthritis

Cures nasal congestion

These are just a few of the ways Dr. Marshall teaches that salt is good for you.  Since good health starts with good digestion, it is very important to make sure you are digesting your food well.  He said the the single, most important thing you can do for digestion is take HCL with every meal.  Also, salting your food with good, air dried sea salt helps create HCL.

I buy the pink salt from Dr. Marshall.  It is fabulous.  You can also get air dried sea salt at health food stores.  Just read the label carefully and make SURE it is air dried and not processed in any way.

Okay, this may sound foreign to many of you.  All you hear is how bad salt is and regular, table salt is bad for you.  But look at what God says about salt!!!  Every reference to it in the Bible is GOOD!!!  I believe salt the way God created it is good.  I eat a lot of it and am never bloated and I have low blood pressure.  So there! :)

Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltiness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another
Mark 9:50

Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man
Colossians 4:6
