Restricting Salt For Good Health?

I know you probably heard about the item last night on NBC Nightly News indicating that people should consume less than 1 tsp. of salt per day. The item on the NBC Nightly News quotes the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Doesn’t sound like much of an interest in the “health” of the public, so much as their own interest in publicity. But a restriction in salt or sodium chloride is the single most contributing factor in causing ALL sickness and dis-ease or so-called disease.

I have written Brian Williams and have alerted him to his irresponsible journalism… citing our own facts and science.

Please read my article “Salt is Life” at:

http://articlesofhealth.blogspot.com/2008/08/salt-is-life.html

What do you suppose would happen if we put the ocean life on a restricted salt diet or a salt-free diet? The obvious would happen – all life in the ocean would DIE!

Salt or sodium chloride is the major element of all of the body fluids and responsible for preserving and maintaining the alkaline design of the body. This is why our body fluids are salted with sodium chloride! Without salt you would die. In my own research I have found that every person who is sick or tired is SALT DEFICIENT! Restricting salt is like restricting oxygen. What needs to be restricted is NOT salt but acidic lifestyles and diets. GET OFF YOUR ACID! NOT YOUR SALT!

This type of inaccurate reporting is why we have so much trouble in this country really addressing health issues at a time when all types of dis-eases and medical costs are increasing.

It’s ironic that President Obama just this morning held a press conference on getting adequate health care to all Americans and
containing costs. Several large Pharmaceutical Companies have agreed to “limit” medical cost INCREASES over the next few
years. It’s the old scam…”give a little now, to take more later”. And… President Obama fell for it.

Please write your Congress Men or Women today and let them know that President Obama’s so-called health plan is NOT the path to better health and fitness. Limiting the cost of drugs by Pharmaceutical Companies does not equate to better health for Americans. What this country needs is Education NOT Medication. Americans need to be educated in the knowledge of the New Biology(R) and the true path to health, energy, vitality and fitness.

Personal responsibility and the understanding of the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet and the importance of eating liberal amounts of salt daily is the only way.

In the words of Gandhi, “you must be the change you want to see.”

  1. Hi Dr. Young,
    I am 24 years old and I was recently diagnosed with very high blood pressure (170/110). My EKG suggested that I may have an enlarged ventricular artery, and I’m going to a specialist to further diagnose the issue.
    I have always been a huge fan of putting baking soda in my water – in fact, I don’t like drinking water without it! Since the high blood pressure reading, I haven’t mixed baking soda in any of my liquid – mostly because I’ve been too scared!
    My question is, what is your recommended daily intake of salts (particularly sodium). I have the phourSalts which I use sparingly. I am also aware of the fact that I need about 5x more potassium than sodium. Is this much sodium healthy for someone with an enlarged heart?
    I just wanted to make sure I have my facts straight – thanks in advance for your help. Your advice is really the only advice I truly trust.

  2. Hi Jenna,

    I just read your question to Dr. Young. I hope he will give you a reply soon, because i want to learn about this too. I have been advising people to drink water with lemon juice and sodium bicarbonate. Unlike me they develloped high blood pressure too. I have asked Dr. Young about what causes this high bloodpressure and his reply was to make sure to eleminate ALL acidic foods. Some of my friends took this advice and their bloodpressures dropped, in some cases 15 points! This whas done mainly by increasing their vegetable intake.
    There’s probably much more you can do. Again i hope Dr. Young will give you his awnsers.

    Best Whishes,

  3. Hi Hans,
    I hope he responds as well as I dont want this to control my life! I am a vegetarian and eat plenty of vegetables daily. I exercise on a regular basis and have had hypothyroidism my whole life – another reason why I’m wondering about sodium, it did a great job at clearing out my system.

    I suppose I could step it up a lot. I do drink coffee in the mornings (although I haven’t since I found out about this) and I do drink alcohol on the weekend (I’m 24!) I do everything in moderation though, so I’m surprised that I’m having issues.

    I go for my echocardiogram tomorrow and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is nothing!

  4. Dear Jenna;
    I have had some experience with friends wiht very high blood pressure, heart disease and hypothyroidism (the opposite of your condition but a problem with thyroid hormone production).
    I can tell you that in all cases, moderation was not the answer. By getting these people on vegan, LIVE FOOD diets they significantly reduced or reversesd their condition. Although you are vegetarian, you need to eliminate dairy and the veggies you eat should be 80% raw. You can work at getting there by lightly steaming some of your veggies if you still need to. Cut out the coffee and alcohol at least until you get this sorted out. No sugar or high sugar fruits. Try drinking veggie smoothies made with avocado (like cucumber, spinach, green pepper and avocado). You will be amazed at the results. Good luck.

  6. Thanks to both of you for your info/advice. I will definitely cut out the coffee and alcohol, it’s a bad habit anyways. Strangely enough, I had my cardiologist appt today, and my blood pressure has normalized and my EKG is also back to normal. This is about a week off of baking soda. In the future I am going to stick the phoursalts as its recommended dosage, and drink coconut water which has a terrific blend of electrolytes, alkaline, tasty and pretty low in sugar.

    I’m still curious as to how much sodium, potassium, etc I’m supposed to be getting. Also, another interesting fact: since I stopped drinking baking soda, I’ve dropped about 5 lbs and counting…must be all the water weight!

  8. Gain a Few Inches by Sleeping Properly
    Researchers say that the most common cause of a person’s stooped posture is due to not sleeping properly. If you think that sleeping only involves closing your eyes, having a relaxed and even breathing and clearing your mind, then you are wrong. Sleeping right means you have to relax your body in the right way.
    Many people have grown up being used to certain luxuries in the bed like head pillows and hotdog pillows. Even kids are being given extra pillows to make them feel comfortable, not knowing that this can greatly affect posture.
    People who want to gain a few inches know that they must correct their posture. Yoga, swimming and some stretching exercises can help improve posture, but the best way to do it is by sleeping in the proper position. If you sleep in an awkward position for eight hours a day, there would still be minimal improvement even with various posture-improving activities. One must enroll in growth enhancement programs and drink Growth Flex V Pro System. Go to http://www.growth-flex.com/ .
    So how should you sleep right? First, get rid of any type of pillow that would make you want to twist and turn in your bed. Even head pillows must be removed because they put the head and the back into an inclined position which is very unnatural for them. Now lay down as straight as possible on your flat and firm bed, with arms on your sides. You don’t have to stretch or exert any other effort; just lie down. You can bend your arms if you like, just don’t twist or turn your legs and torso. Initially, this can be tough since you are not used to it, but with constant practice, you will be comfortable. Plus, your height will improve. More information available here at http://www.growth-flex.com/ .
