To Salt or Not to Salt.

Is that the question? Or is it "to Salt or Not to Salt with which salt?"

Did you know that most table salts sold on the market are bleached, refined and mixed with anti-caking ingredients? Many also contain sugar (in the form of dextrose)? Look at your ingredients label and you may see calcium silicate, sodium silicoaluminate and potassium iodide.

Sodium is essential for the health of every cell in the human body as well as our blood and lymphatic system. We need sodium for the production of hydrochloric acid which is secreted in the stomach to digest protein. Along with potassium it is important for the functioning of our nerves and contraction of muscles.

Completely natural sea salt is what we recommend in our practice. It is the natural, unrefined form so it does not look sparkly white. You may find natural sea salt has small flecks of color which come from the natural trace minerals essential for many functions of the body.

We recommend everyone with high blood pressure consult with their healthcare professional on the consumption of sea (natural sea) salt. Our team is currently in the process of evaluating various natural sea salt products so check in with us soon for more information on how sea salt can help improve your function!

Creating Wellness Lifestyle Club addresses Flu Shot Media Hysteria this Monday.

With all the hype and confusion in the public, we thought it would be appropriate to choose this next meeting (tomorrow at 6:30pm) to discuss the issue at hand. Bring your questions and clippings with you. This is a members only meeting but guests may come for free one time. We'll be following up on our discussion on detoxification as well.

You may want to visit the following link to view Dr. Mercola's commentary on Dr. Oz's media performance regarding the flu and Swine flu vaccine.

In a recent newsletter he states: " the journal Neurotoxicology just last month, the researchers found that primates injected with just ONE vaccine containing thimerosal suffered significant neurological impairment when compared with those who received a saline solution injection, or no injection at all.

The monkeys received a weight-adjusted amount of the vaccine preservative thimerosal, so each dose included 2 mcg’s of ethyl mercury. A human infant dose of thimerosal-containing vaccine typically contains 12.5 mcg, and most seasonal flu vaccines as well as the swine flu vaccine will contain 25 mcg of mercury per adult dose.

As a result, the macaques vaccinated at birth took more than twice as long as unexposed macaques to acquire three standardized skills typically used to measure infant brain development.

Despite the overwhelming evidence that has built up over the years, US health officials are still promulgating vaccines as the best solution to the flu.

Worse yet, in a nauseating twist, the state of Washington's Health Department has now temporarily suspended a rule that limits the amount of a mercury preservative in vaccines given to pregnant women and children under the age of 3, just so that they can start administering the swine flu vaccine to toddlers and pregnant women as quickly as possible…"

YOU NEED TO BE INFORMED. Please contact our office for information if you cannot attend this very important meeting tomorrow.
