Ive come to the conclusion that you need minerals from the earth as-well-as from organic organisms. Its
the reason why animals lick at the earth at naturally occurring mineral licks.

No you havent.



















Salt is strictly avoided within Gerson Therapy protocol. Sodium inhibits the functioning of enzymes within the body.
There is a link to an article about Gerson Therapy in the photo description.
For those that arent aware of Gerson Therapy, it was such a successful & effective means of overcoming illness & disease
(including supposedly incurable diseases, according to the Western medical industry, even many types of cancer), that Dr.
Max Gerson was poisoned, and the manuscript to his unfinished book was stolen. He managed to survive & nurse himself
back to health, He spent the next two years rewriting his book from square-1, and managed to finish it before he was
poisoned a second time, which ended his life.
Needless to say, if you want to find a Gerson Therapy clinic, you have to go to Mexico, and there may be some smaller
clinics in Europe. But Gerson Therapy is so effective, that it is not allowed to be professionally practiced in the U.S.


The first 3 things listed under the letter S are

Salt, table salt, sea salt


Why you ask?

ANSWER: Sodium acts as an Enzyme Inhibitor


Here is a link to the full list

The salt lick thing is a bogus argument. If it were true, then ALL animals would HAVE TO find salt licks.
Animals are just like us and can easily get addicted to stimulants like salt. You will notice that none of these
articles state that they KNOW why the animals go to the licks. The most probable reason they find is to eat
clay, which is a rare negatively charged dirt and it acts as a sweep, cleaning out the body magnetically, much
like pure water does. There IS NO nutrient value to this clay, it is a physical broom or sweeping tool, NOT A
You will also notice a HUGE glaring omission which is SO VERY COMMON
these days:
There is not one single discussion about whether these are organic or
inorganic minerals, whether they are alive or dead. They just simply state
sodium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and zinc. They NEVER list whether
they are talking about the organic or the inorganic version of these minerals.
Its not the scientists fault either, this ALL-IMPORTANT issue has been completely removed and
deleted from all nutritional education.

When discussing nutrition, you HAVE TO state whether you are talking about living, light-infused
matter or dead, light-depleted matter.

The following was found in the wikipedia article:

Mineral lick sites play a critical role in the ecology and diversity of organisms that visit these sites,

NOT FOR NUTRITION, but to ward off the effects of secondary compounds that are included in the
arsenal of plant defences


The following was found in the footnotes of the wiki article.

STUDY: Nutrition or Detoxification: Why Bats Visit Mineral Licks of the Amazonian Rainforest


We conclude that pregnant and lactating fruit-eating bats do not visit mineral licks principally for minerals,
but instead to buffer the effects of secondary plant compounds that they ingest in large quantities during
periods of high energy demand. These findings have potential implications for the role of mineral licks for
mammals in general, including humans.


The following was also found in the footnotes of the wiki article.

STUDY: Mineral Licks as Diversity Hotspots in Lowland Forest of Eastern Ecuador

Mineral licks are sites where a diverse array of mammals and birds consume soil (geophagy) or drink water,
LIKELY for mineral supplementation.

Mineral licks provide an important resource for many species BUT FURTHER STUDIES ARE NEEDED to
determine the precise benefit(s) obtained.

Among the SUGGESTED benefits are mineral supplementation, detoxification of plant secondary
compounds, and alleviation of digestive disorders

Given that soil or water from mineral licks MAY provide a dietary supplement of some type


You will notice that ALL of these people admit that NONE of them have any real clues as to why A FEW
animals go to salt licks.

Its always, suggested, likely, or may.


Here are some excerpts from a newspaper article published in the THE BATTLE CREEK IDEA on January 9th,
1908 by Dr. John Kellogg


I found the scientific evidence rapidly accumulating that salt is a damaging thing, and within the last four or
five years the evidence has been coming overwhelmingly from Germany and France. By the most eminent of
scientific men in the world the fact has been proven that salt is an unnecessary article of food.

The great majority of human beings eat no salt. In all central Africa there is no salt at all, and the millions of
central Africa never taste salt. When America discovered by Columbus, the great number of Indians who
people this country at that time ate no salt, and up to within a very short time, salt has not been used by the
North American Indians. A friend of mine who kept a store out in the Indian Territory for some twenty years
preceding the civil war told me that at that time the Indians ate no salt, never used it, any of them, and they
never did use it until they were gradually accustomed to use it by using the government rations of salt pork
and salt beef.

In going across the ocean some six or seven years ago, I met a gentlemen who was a missionary away up on
the Hudson Bay, and been working up in the Hudson Bay region for twenty years as a missionary, an
archdeacon in the Episcopal church. And this gentleman I found was with a tribe of Indians up there; and I
improved the opportunity to talk with him quite extensively about the habits of the people, and he told me
one thing that interested me very much. He said, The people of that country do not use salt. The Indians are
very much opposed to the use of salt.

The experiment has been successfully made. I made it myself; for ten years I ate not a particle of salt; yet the
physiologists and the doctors all said we must eat salt.

Dr. John Kellogg, January 9th, 1908

Millions of the human race have lived healthfully, and died of a good ripe old age, without employing it at
all; furthermore, hundreds of thousands of human beings now live in the enjoyment of good health, who
have never used salt either as a food or a condiment.

from Dr. R. T. Trall, M.D., Hydropathic Encyclopedia, Vol. I, Page 886

I think it would not be difficult to show that there are whole nations and tribes of people who do not eat
salt. I am told by an Italian, who has lived among them, that the Algerines do not. I was myself informed
while in the region that the Indian tribes inhabiting the banks of the Columbia and Puget Sound do not. It is
noteworthy also that those tribes are among the most graceful, intelligent and industrious tribes in North
America, and are fine in personal appearance. I think that there is little doubt that the inhabitants of the
islands of the Pacific Ocean lived from a period of vast antiquity, explorers have been left for weeks, months
and years without a supply of salt by accident or otherwise, and have survived without apparent injury.
Finally, there are many persons in the United States who have voluntarily abandoned the use of salt for
periods ranging from one to twenty years (and for aught I know longer), not only without injury but with
increased health, strength and activity. So far from being natural to man, the instincts of children, especially
when born free from an inherited bias in its favor, go to show by their rejection of it that it is unnatural. Like
the taste for coffee,tea and various seasonings, it is an acquired one; few, if any children but will prefer
unsalted food.

from Richard T. Colbum, in The Salt Eating Habit

Although the interior parts of our continent abound with salt springs, yet I cannot find that the Indians used
salt in their diet till they were instructed to do so by Europeans.

from Dr. Benjamin Rush, who made a careful study of the habits of the American Indians a hundred years
ago and found them to be very healthy.

Mr. Wm. Bryant, of Philadelphia, who went with a company of 120 men, under the U. S. Government.
beyond the Rocky mountains, to conduct to their far Western homes, the Indian chiefs who were brought to
the seat of government by Lewis and Clark, says that for more than two years they lived as Indians did,
without tobacco, narcotic or alcoholic substance and without salt. Most of these men suffered with various
chronic complaints when they left the East, but all of them were restored to good health during their sojourn
in the wilds of the West.

from, The Reverend Sylvester Graham, who was an early American dietary reformer.

On many occasions, I myself have offered them some surplus articles of food left by us after our meals.
Soups and meats cooked in the usual way and seasoned with salt,they would invariably refuse, after tasting,
saying in their own language, it was not good. Of the same kind of meats cooked without salt, they would eat
heartily and with gusto. Bread, hard bread,crackers, etc., they would also eat, but anything they could taste
salt in they would invariably refuse. He says that even when they were hungry they would refuse foods in
which they could taste salt. In other bands (of Indians) that we saw, it (salt) is an article of medicine rather
than an article of food. Describing these men he says: A more athletic, hearty, stout and robust class of men
cannot be found in the world than these very Indians of whom I am writing, who never used this article (salt)
in any shape. Many of them are more than six feet high, others of medium size, and they will endure more
hardship, stand more fatigue,have better lungs, suffer less from sickness, live longer, on a general average,
than the white race, who have all conveniences.
Dr. Hoffman of the U. S. Army, writing in the San Francisco Medical Press in 1864, gives us an account of
experiences he had with some of the wild Indians who inhabited the Western plans, as he passed, with the
army over these in 1849. The Indians frequently visited their camp.

it required the lapse of several generations after the conquest of Mexico to reconcile the Tlascalans, a bold
and hardy peasantry, of Mexico, to the use of salt in their food. The Indians of Northern Mexico still use no
salt in their food. Those of the Hudson Bay district and a few isolated regions still thrive without salt. If
Hudson Bay Indians are forced to eat salted meat, they first soak it over night in an abundance of water. They
then add freshwater and boil it for an hour. They pour this water off and add fresh water and cook again.

from the historian, William H. Prescott

About 1912 I gave up the use of salt. Up to that time I had been a heavy user of salt. At first I missed it from
my foods. After a time I did not relish foods in which I could detect the taste of salt. I enjoy the fine delicate
flavors of the foods much more than I ever enjoyed the flavor of salt. I have never missed salt after the first
weeks after giving it up. I have never had a craving for it. My health has not suffered in any manner from lack
of it.I have brought up three children ages 23, 20 and 17 without salt. Their mother did not take salt
before and during pregnancy nor during lactation. These children have been reared from conception without
salt. They are well developed, strong and healthy and brimming over with energy and enthusiasm. Although
they were reared as vegetarians, who are supposed to need salt most of all, they have not needed salt.

from Vilhjalmur Stefansson , a Canadian Arctic explorer and ethnologist.

Vilhjalmar Stefanson found the Eskimos to be very healthy,yet none of these peoples ever use salt. Indeed
Stefanson tells us that they greatly dislike it. The Siberian natives have no use for salt. In Africa most Negroes
live and die without ever hearing of this essential of life. In Europe for long periods salt was so expensive
that only the rich could afford it.

Bartholomew found the Chinese of the interior to be healthy and that they do not use salt. The Bedouins
consider the use of salt ridiculous. The high-landers of Nepal refuse salt, as do the Kamschatdales. Millions of
natives of Central Africa have never tasted salt. The Darmas of Southwest Africa never take salt by any

In Thoreaus account of his life in the woods, he refers to salt as that grossest of groceries,and tells us that
he discontinued its use and found that he was less thirsty thereafter while suffering no ill effects. He also says
that he found that the Indians whom he encountered in his wandering did not use it.

Since the time Graham started his crusade and condemned the use of salt along with all other condiments,
literally hundreds of thousands of people in America have discontinued the use of salt,many families of
children have been reared without it, and no harm has ever come from abstinence from this essential of
animal life. For more than twenty years I have excluded salt from the diets of my patients and have watched
them get well without this supposed-to-be indispensable article of diet. Some of these patients have not
returned to the use of salt after leaving my care. Some of them have reared their children without it.
Nowhere has any evidence of any harm from a lack of salt been observable.

Why, with all the historical, observational, empirical and experimental evidence that is available bearing on
this subject, will men continue to declare that salt is essential to animal life?
Why will they ignore the facts and cling to a superstition?

Sea Salt, Is It Good For You?

Well well well Growing up Salt is looked at and called the Spice of Life, we should Take all with a Grain of
Salt, its been revered and deemed of great value for Literal Ages! When we look at the properties, effects
and supposed benefits of salt its no wonder why its played such a large role in our history. From the many
varieties of sea Salt to Mined rock salts all of different character and colour Salt has been Used to
Preserve, Pickle, Dry, and Stimulate the tastebuds!

When you really think about it Before we started Tilling the earth and digging up Tubers, Harvesting Grains
and cooking our food (less than 1% of our time on the Planet) we Have been eating whole fresh ripe raw
foods that didnt really require anything to pep them up! Eating seasonally from the abundance nature has
to offer in our ideal habitat the need to Store, preserve, Pickle is basically Nil. Moving outside of our natural
environment has in part caused us to degrade over to a Comparatively Bland Diet made up of Cooked
Starches and Meats, adding Salt makes that otherwise relitively Bland food Taste good!

The Hook is The more Salt you use the more Hooked you become to using it. The processed food industry
uses this to their advantage, more so in the past before people knew the dangers of a High salt diet. Most
processed foods are high in some form of salt and some form of Sugar, usually the cheapest one that the
public accepts. The nature of these foods is to stimulate while under delivering on Nutrients, creating a
need to eat more and more and more.

I feel we have stepped away from the original question posed, Is Sea Salt Good for you? Most people Know
Iodized Salt isnt so healthful, in fact most people today understand that ingesting Salt can can deeply impact
almost all biochemical pathways in your body. When most people talk about salt they are thinking of Sodium
Chloride, the principal component of common table salt. Sodium chloride, NaCl, and water, H2O, are formed
by neutralization of sodium hydroxide, NaOH, a base, with hydrogen chloride, HCl, an acid: HCl+NaOH?
NaCl+H2O. Sea salt is not so different, obtained by the evaporation of seawater or Mined from Old Sea beds
and Caves (rock Salt). Its mineral content gives it a different taste and slightly different chemical composition
from table salt. The additional minerals include Sulfate, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium among other
trace minerals.

The Minerals I eat Salt for the Minerals!! This is often the Call made to convince people to eat Sea Salt.
Despite the Known Dangers of a High Salt/sodium diet (listed below) the minute Mineral Content of Sea Salt
is Driven in as a really good reason to eat this Otherwise Toxic stimulant. I find it strange that we would eat a
known poison to get a small amount of minerals when Perfectly healthful whole foods contain the minerals
we need in abundance! Chew a few more greens and rejoice in eating the Highest Mineral Content Food Per
Calorie on the Planet!!!

Lets look at those Minerals anyhow

Inorganic minerals as found in all types of Sea and Rock salt were never living, they come without carbon and
cannot bring life to cells. The body treats these metals like toxins that must be eliminated at cost of vitality
and cellular health. The Covalent Bonds are tightly held together and thus they cannot be easily broken
down, due to this they can become deposited in the joints and tissues if they are not eliminated. Contrary to
the electrons in the human body their electrons spin counter-clockwise, out of sync.

Organic minerals were once living, or are living and can bring life to cells. These contain carbon, often
carbohydrate and their electrons spin clockwise, just like those of the human body. Additionally, these cells
can form an ionic bond with the body and can easily break down into materials to help with bodily function,
such as tissue repair. Its interesting to note the vibratory rate of organic minerals is comparable to tissue and
cells. Inorganic minerals are not.

Inorganic Minerals as they exist in nature are found in the soil and water, Orgainic minerals on the other hand
are found in plants and animals. Only plants (with the help of Bactria) can transform inorganic minerals into
organic minerals. As Inorganic Minerals are useless and Injurious animals must eat plants or plant-eating
animals to obtain their organic minerals.

An example of this is arsenic. Arsenic in the chemical, metal or inorganic state can be a lethal poison,
however, when found in organic form in fresh celery and asparagus it is Healthful.

Rock Minerals are indeed healthful for plants, that is in the growing and creation of healthfull plants and the
Fruits there of! I would encourage the use of Rock dust and such as a option for a great mineral rich garden!
With the help of Bacteria around the root hairs of plants, Inorganic minerals are converted into Organic
minerals (mineral + carbon ) that can become a part of the cell structure of plants including Carbohydrates.

Beyond this scientific look into the validity of Sea Salt and the Minerals there in, I like to look at the common

For one, if you are dying of thirst and you drink sea water, you will Die! Why is this? Because salt is extremely
dehydrating. It sucks the moisture out of your tissues to try to create a balance between the sodium and
potassium inside and outside of your cells, immediately you are thirsty and must drink water in order to
regulate the Hydration levels within and outside of your cells. The bodies solution to pollution is Dilution,
have some salt and you will need dilute it quick.

Pour salt on a cut, or a slug, actually dont, we all know what happens, it burns in the case of the hand and
kills the slug. What does it do to your insides? Used for pickling and preserving food, does that make sense to
take into our temple? The Samurai used to commit suicide by ingesting a ounce of salt, thats all it took. These
days because of our average salt consumption it may take up to 2 ounces.

Some people say, we have been using it for a long long time, its revered and thought to be sacred in some
cultures. So have Drugs,Violence, cruel rituals and prostitution, just because something has been used by
cultures for a long time or is seen as sacred doesnt necessarily mean its a great thing. Using common sense
looking from as many angles as possible while paying attention to Natures design works every time!
Taking some time away from eating salt one can easily notice the negative effects of eating even a minute
amount of sea salt. Immediate dehydration, physiological stimulation and a want to use more, dull senses
and reduced ability to taste subtler flavours and as you can see in the video A puffy bloated look due to the
body sucking up water to dilute the salt. For a time after consuming overt salt (sea salt, sauces with salt,
table salt) the body will shed sodium in sweat in a increased rate to get this substance out as much and fast
as possible.

How much sodium and how much minerals do we need?

Enough, thats it!! How much is Enough?

That which we can easily get from whole fresh ripe raw organic fruits and vegetables. After 8 years on a raw
food diet without Salt I am more than sure of this, My Doctor after 3 consecutive years of Blood tests,
reviewing my mineral levels, vitamin levels, Protein levels, Fat levels, etc is sure of this. The ultra endurance
athletes I know are more than sure of this and not worries about sodium even with their near inhuman
feats!! I will soon be releasing my Interviews with DurianRider and Grant Campbell, two amazing Endurance
and Ultra endurance athletes pushing the limits! They will share their gems of Knowledge on this subject and
many more!

Common sense and nature bring us back to the simple truths.

The Following are the 7 major medical conditions that can arise from the overconsumtion of sodium. Its
interesting to note that they are common with the mainstream using salt or sea salt but unheard of in raw
foodists obtaining their Sodium in organic form from Whole fresh raw ripe plant foods.

Excerpted from

1. High Blood Pressure The number one medical consequence of high salt intake is hypertension. High
intake of salt causes water retention and promotes abnormal influx of water molecules into your blood
vessels. This action instantaneously increases your blood volume and blood pressure. Sudden rises of blood
pressure can trigger life threatening cardiovascular emergencies like strokes and heart attacks. Reducing your
sodium intake through diet can lower your blood pressure by as much as 25%.

2. Ventricular Hypertrophy and Heart Failure A habit of eating salty food can also heighten your risk of non-
blood pressure related heart diseases. Having higher than normal blood volume means that your heart has to
work much harder to provide proper circulation. Over time, your heart can become abnormally large and
your heart valves can become thinner. An enlarged heart is significantly weaker and can lead to symptoms
like chest pains, breathlessness and chronic fatigue. Fatal cases like sudden cardiac arrest and heart failure
can also occur.

3. Osteoporosis- Sodium inhibits your bodys absorption and utilization of calcium, leading to a loss of bone
mass and increased porousness of your bones. Women after menopause, diabetics and elderly people who
are already at high risk of osteoporosis should be especially careful about salt intake. Having a high salt diet
can drastically heighten your chances for fractures and other skeletal deformations.

4. Kidney Disorders Excess calcium and sodium that are not used by your body goes into your urine. This
can increase the filtration load of your kidneys and increase the likelihood of crystal formation. Elevated
blood pressure and blood volume are also extremely damaging to your kidneys.
5. Dehydration and Swelling Feeling thirsty is a direct response after having salty food. This happens
because excessive sodium in your blood draws water out of your cells and into your tissues. Dehydrated cells
signal your brain for water. Having fluid filled tissue makes you look bloated and swollen, and these
symptoms are especially severe in the lower parts of your body. Reducing your salt intake is an effective way
of preventing swollen feet, ankles and calves.

6. Digestive Diseases Sodium regulates the acid-base balance of blood and body fluids. Too much salt can
trigger acid reflux and cause heart burn and long-term damage to your upper digestive tract. Studies have
shown that habitual intake of salty foods is a strong risk factor for duodenal and gastric ulcers and cancers.

7. Electrolyte and Hormone Imbalance Excessive sodium can impact both your electrolyte and hormone
balance. Too much sodium can severely hinder the conduction of nerve impulses and induce symptoms like
dizziness, muscle cramps and shakiness. You can also have impaired sensory response, feel disoriented or
develop other depressive symptoms.

DO EPSOM SALTS WORK? by Paul Ingraham, Vancouver, Canada, published 2006, updated Jan 16th, 2013

There is no good reason to believe that Epsom salt baths aid recovery from muscle pain, soreness or
