Sea salt is a diamond on my SWAMI. Don't assume if you aren't craving salt you're getting enough. When all but my sodium on a blood test was normal and sodium was 3 points below
the reference range, I started doing a lot of research on "salt". My problem as I figured out was
always using very little salt....feeling it was unhealthy, could raise blood pressure. None of this
is true. Most people use table salt....it's highly refined and filled with unhealthy additives.
The source of your salt means the difference between giving yourself a healing mineral vs a toxic
ingredient. I only use Himalayan sea sat and I know I get a pinch when I add it to water/lemon
juice in the morning. I cook with sea salt and make it a point when I'm in restaurants to ask for no
salt because I wouldn't know what type of salt is being used. Commercial table salt ie Morton's salt isn't pure. Sea salt helps our adrenal glands function and is responsible for electrolyte balance.
Our little bodies were living for 9 months in amniotic fluid which is comprised of salt. If you are
dehydrated, you might not know it....but if fluids are needed in the ER, it's a saline solution you're
going to get.
Most people with high blood pressure who are being told to lower their sodium intake are inadvertently helping to raise their blood pressure. Natural sea salt contains many other trace
minerals besides sodium chloride.
If you retain salt in your tissues, then you're probably using too much. I seem to tolerate a lot more
salt than I ever did....but I think my body never got enough salt and is now thriving on this diamond food.http://www.livingthenourishedlife.com/2010/02/commercial-table-salt-vs-unrefined-seahttp://chriskresser.com/shaking-up-the-salt-myth-the-dangers-of-salt-restriction
If you've never heard of drinking "sole" first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, google it
and learn why it's healing. I learned about this after reading the book "Water and Salt" by Barbara
It's taking sea salt rocks, (which I bought from Swanson's vitamins) putting them in a jar filled with pure water, leaving it for 24 hours and each day, taking one teaspoon of this concentrated salt water and adding it to 1 glass of water. I've been doing this daily.... If the salt rocks dissolve,
you keep adding more until they stay in solution. And keep adding more water so you can use
this same jar of sole pretty much indefinitely.

I can't comment on the "fat" part of this thread....I only know to follow my SWAMI portions as
a reputable guide of measurement.
