I haven't read all the threads on this topic, so if I repeat something please excuse me.
I have been reading a lot recently on the use of Celtic salt ( from France) which contains 82 trace minerals and is about
as close to the chemistry of fluids of the body as any substance containing salt can be. (After using unrefined salt for about
three weeks now, I think I like Himalayan unrefined salt just a little better. It's really quite good.)
The advantages of Celtic salt are that it will lower blood pressure when it's high, and raise it when blood pressure is low (because of the enzymes and trace minerals in the salt). Be sure to drink water, too.
It is excellent for modifying and reducing sinus problems , bronchitis problems, asthma, and excess mucus, for the same reasons. (It is known that people who work in the salt mines of the Himalayas rarely ever have a respiratory illness.)
This is a particularly difficult time for allergies this spring in our section of the country, so I've bought some and plan to use it to see if it really works. I think it must really be helpful.
The major benefit of Celtic salt is that it reduces the acidity of brain cells and helps in creating a more alkaline state of fluids. Those factors alone make it well worth a try. American brands of salt are refined and do not contain the enzymes that can be activated and the multiple trace minerals in Celtic Grey Salt, and so it's really not as beneficial for the human. In addition, American salts that are refined may have aluminum added for special purposes, and aluminum has been implicated now as a possible influence in Alzheimer's Disease.
(I have no association with any products from France. I just do my own research on these matters because they interest me, and I
find many of the ideas very helpful.)
I read recently that, during World War II, Navy surgeons who ran out of blood for transfusions used ocean water to inject for blood transfusions and saved many lives aboard ship by doing that.
If interested, see benefits of www.celticsalt.com. Many other
references are helpful by googling unrefined salt benefits.
