Hi Raw-al, was wondering if you could be more specific on why Salt is bad news for you. I find that when I take salt it increases my anxiety and gives me panic attacks for a good number of days afterwards. How does it affect yourself?

Your second sentence should have a period at the end of it since it's not a question. As I pointed out in the Fukushima post, it is then, not than. Read the article then comment on it, would have been the appropriate way to say that.

The article discusses salt. The article is from the Weston Price Foundation. I ingest a lot of salt and follow a practically raw weston price type diet. Therefore I decided to share a post on salt I found interested from the Weston Price Foundation in the Raw Weston Price section.

Salt may be good for some but it is bad news for me.

I do pretty well with it. I use Redmond's unrefined Real Salt.

I love salt too but I don't do well with Redmond Sea Salt and use a mix of a ton of other kinds and also a ton of seaweeds.

To each unique body their own unique dietary needs.

I really appreciate Weston A Price but take even their info with a "grain of salt" muahaha.

When I eat salt it heats up my digestion which is not necessary because my digestion is very strong. This heated up digestion sends the excess heat uphill and aggrivates my throat and teeth if I have enough. Basically it stops at a sore throat because I do things otr eat things to stop the progress.

What I do is have cool water to dilute it and after a bit I eat something that will slow down my digestion like fat or butter or cream or yogurt.

In Ayurvedic terms, salt aggravates Pitta so you do things to pacify it. Follow the pacify column under Pitta: http://ayurveda.com/pdf/food-guidelines.pdf

In Ayurvedic terms salt is good for PPL who have lots of Vata.

I get a nasty very sharp, very odd reaction if I  eat any salt. I  get a burning sensation if I try to eat (allegedly?)raw, sundried bee pollen. I do feel too warm if I eat more than a little cooked food, but it isn't as harsh as the heat I get from the pollen.

I thought about this today. When a fish eats another fish, wouldn't it ingest a lot of sea water?

In this video it looks a lot like they don't spit anything out. -

Where did you get that information? It kind of sounds made up lol.

A google search of "fish spit out water fish ocean" didn't yield anything in the first page.

Here's an article on some sea creatures even drinking sea water - http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-can-sea-mammals-drink/

From a yahoo question - http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110727124600AA1VscW

"On the other hand, saltwater fish do actively drink sea water. Their gills process the water and take out the salt. "

I assume when they say salt, they mean sodium, and not all the minerals in the ocean water. Which may be an explanation of why ocean fish can be such a good source of nutrition.

Which may also offer an explanation for why unrefined salt, with all the minerals intact, is so good for getting nutrition.

The unrefined salt I use has tons of minerals. I also use Blue Oceans Minerals which has the sodium removed, and is very rich in magnesium. Essentially Blue Oceans Minerals is sea water w/o the sodium, and unrefined salt is sea water with the water removed.

DaBoss,
What do they know, all those PPL on the net? It'll be our little secret.

Cool vid, I had no idea a Shearwater was an actual bird. That was the name of the airforce base near my old stomping grounds - Halifax. http://www.shearwateraviationmuseum.ns.ca/history/rcaf.htm

Interesting post there about salmon etc. Never really thought about it before.
Cheers
Al

Lol

Here's a good article on fish and seawater - http://www.whfreeman.com/catalog/static/whf/phelanpreview/doc/01_fish.pdf

"But since the water coming into the mouths of saltwater fish is hypertonic, they send some of it down through their digestive tract, the same way humans drink (and the rest goes over the gills). Seawater fish do drink water."

Maybe the discussion on ayurveda is off topic, and needs another thread.

Done. The new thread's name is "Ayurveda" and it's in the "Off topic" section.
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler
