One of my favorites is this thing on salt.
This is probably one of the bigger medical ka-kas, this salt thing.
Doctors tell you ďDonít use salt!Ē
No sodium, because itís going to give you hypertension, high
blood pressure, it will give you heart disease, and they have made
Americans paranoid about salt. Now,
Iím a veterinarian as well as a physician.
I refuse to believe that my human patients are dumber than a cow.
Whatís the first thing a farmer or a rancher puts out for his
livestock? A big salt block,
right? Nobody gives any
restriction on a cow, she goes out and has all the salt that she wants.
Never gets high blood pressure, and so I always used to tell my
patients ďLook, letís use a little common sense here.
Why donít you just go ahead and take a salt shaker, just salt
your food to taste, go mad with the salt.
Your body will tell you when to back off.
And 98% of my patients would do it just because I asked them to do
it. And I have been
vindicated in this belief.
This was actually a study that was published in the
NY Times, May 22, 1996, and this study was abstracted from JAMA, the
Journal of the American Medical Association, the most prestigious medical
journal in the world, according to themselves.
Now in this particular journal, a Dr. Alexander Gordon Logan, who
is an epidemiologist and cardiologist on the teaching staff of the medical
school at the Univ. of Toronto up in Canada, and he took 56 existing
studies on hypertension or high blood pressure and restriction of salt,
combined data from these 56 studies, which included 3505 people.
He threw away all the conclusions and re-evaluated the larger group
and what he found out was this. If
you have normal blood pressure, and you restrict salt, it will not prevent
you from getting heart disease or high blood pressure.
If you have hypertension or high blood pressure and you restrict
salt, 97% of those with high blood pressure or hypertension who restrict
salt will not get any measurable benefit.
Zero. 2-5% get
measurable benefit, but itís not significant.
They are only able to reduce their blood pressure by 3.7mm mercury,
so here is what Dr. Alexander Gordon Logan said in JAMA, May 22, 1996.
He said, ďYou might as well go ahead and salt your food to
tasteĒ. Itís a
meaningless exercise. Donít
get paranoid about salt. It
has nothing to do with blood pressure problems.
There has never been one single iota of proof that restricting salt
has any benefit. Thatís
just one of those medical myths, he called it, but Iím going to call it
a medical ka-ka.
Salt your food to taste. Salt does not cause high blood pressure and restricting salt will not reduce your risk of high blood pressure or add ten seconds to your life - in fact restricting salt will shorten your life and make your very short life miserable.
Salt is the raw material needed to manufacture stomach acid. Stomach acid is hydrochloric acid that is necessary to digest food, ensure absorption of minerals, activate pepsin (protein digestive enzyme produced by the stomach) and activate the "intrinsic factor" necessary to absorb vitamin B12.
In April 1997, The Sodium Task Force reported that those individuals who restricted their salt intake to one gram per day had a 600 percent higher rate of heart attacks than those who consumed more than two grams of salt per day.
Restricted salt intakes will make you heat intolerant and over the long term will result in digestive problems including belching, burping, intestinal gas and G.E.R.D. (gastro esophageal reflux disease).
Restricted salt diets with the resultant hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid) will increase risks of nutritional deficiency diseases including obesity (reduced absorption of minerals increases the munchies), diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, osteoporosis, kidney stones, cataracts, fibromyalgia, etc.

Q: I have
a son that has grand mal seizures.
Can you recommend anything for that:
well first of all, was your son born with these grand mal seizures?
Yes, he was. He
was born with it, he has hydrocephalus, cerebropalsy.
Okay, first of all cerebropalsy and hydrocephalus are whatís called a congential birth defect.
These are caused by nutritional deficiencies during pregnancy.
They can be a Zinc deficiency, Vitamin A
deficiency, and it has two problems there, and itís not unusual, because
a deficiency of single nutrient can cause as many as 10 different
diseases. So, your son
unfortunately has a very common series of events here, and because the epilepsy,
the congenital birth disorder is associated with these two congenital
birth defects, the odds are the nutrition alone will not put the genii back
in the bottle. And he might have to stay on an anti-seizure medication, such
as dilantin or phenobarb forever. However,
the thing that you have to be concerned with is almost all of these
anti-seizure medications have a down side in that they deplete their bones
and minerals. Itís not
unusual for a 6 yr old or a 10 yr old to get arthritis
or osteoporosis, noisy
joints, and twitches
and cramps, and loose
teeth and receding gums and back
problems and all the things that are associated with mineral
deficiencies. So your child
is a perfect candidate for the Pig Arthritis formula, simply because he is on dilantin, or another anti-seizure
medication. Very important.
Does he weigh less than 100 pounds?
Yes, he does. Okay,
then I would give him a teaspoon of the Pig
Arthritis formula per 20 lbs of body weight , if he weighs 40 lbs.
you give him 2 teaspoons twice a day, if he weighs 60 lbs, 3 teaspoons or
a tablespoon twice a day, and if he weighs 10 lb, you give him a half a
teaspoon. So it depends what
weight category he falls into. And
again, thereís no reason he canít live to be 100, and usually these
youngsters with these types of congenital birth defects die of some
nutritional deficiency disease. And
so by giving him all 90 essential nutrients,
you will extend his life enormously.
You are welcome.
Kingmaker has found what I consider the best solution in my lifetime for sinus - headache, congestion or dried up as well as sleep apnea. From personal experience I recommend it to you:
base of colloidal silver and tea tree oil, it ever so
gently and quickly relieves any sinus problem I have (and that's plenty
living in Florida!). I hope it does the same for you!
The University of Arizona Medical School took 1300
people, put them on 250-500mcg Selenium, and for 10 years
they looked at them for skin cancer.
And it didnít help skin cancer, we know that, because Selenium
doesnít work for skin cancer. Zinc,
and Beta Carotene and Vitamin E works for skin cancer.
What they found out serendipitously, they werenít expecting
this, it just sort of popped out of the study, they were able to reduce esophageal
cancer by 71%, they were able to reduce prostate cancer
by 69% fellows, better than two thirds, they were able to reduce colon
and rectal cancer by 64%, almost two thirds, they were able to
reduce lung cancer, whether you smoked or not, by 48%, and
ladies, in a parallel study from the University of California by the great
Dr. Gerhardt Schrauser, he said you can reduce your risk of breast
cancer, depending on the type of breast cancer, by 50-85%, by
taking 250 to 500 mcg (of Selenium)
I have personally found that the most benefit I have ever had for my problem skin is CELL SHIELD RTQ which contains Resveratrol, Tumeric and Quercetin.

Then in laboratory, Oh I should tell you too, we said this on the show today, those of
you who may not have heard it, some of you didn't hear the whole show. The first symptoms
of a zinc deficiency is that you lose your sense of smell and your taste.
You say, "Ah, food just doesn't taste good anymore," and you don't have a cold
or anything like that. And you say, your wife says, "Aren't you excited about dinner?
I spent the whole day in the kitchen cooking dinner." He says, "Well, I didn't
smell anything when I walked in". You know he's got a zinc deficiency.
Wallach, are baby formulas enough
for our babies when they are born?
not. Our formulas we give to
dogs, or kittens, have 40 minerals in them, including the minerals
lithium, chromium, vanadium, selenium.
Ralston Purina laboratory rat pellets contain 28 minerals,
including lithium, chromium, vanadium, selenium.
Thereís not a single human milk replacer on the market on or off
the shelf of a grocery store that has more than 12 minerals.
None of them contain lithium, chromium, vanadium and only 2, Pro
Soy Bean and Enfamil have Selenium in them.
And itís tragic that we give our dogs 40 minerals and our rats 28
and our kids 12 or less, you can begin to see why we spend 1.2 trillion
dollars for healthcare last year.
You can begin to see why we only live to be 75.5, half of our genetic potential for longevity of 120 to 140, why we only ranked 17th in longevity and 19th in healthfulness, simply because we donít get the basic raw material to develop properly and maintain the repair of cells from the very beginning. Iíll give you a tragic example. Sudden infant death syndrome is something everybody is familiar with. We eliminated sudden infant death syndrome in animals back in 1950ís because farmers canít afford to lose 2 or 3 or 5% of the baby animals they are raising to sudden infant death syndrome. And we learned it was due to a deficiency of the trace mineral, Selenium, causing sudden death in the most robust and healthiest of the baby animals in the group or the herd or the flock, and we eliminated it simply by giving the pregnant mothers Selenium.
Here's an attorney. You're not a doctor, are you sir? She was so
famous, she was from Detroit, aged 44, Ellen Joyce Alter. She was in the
New York Times obituary, she made the big time. Of course she probably had
steel buns because she belonged to one of those private health clubs. All
these gals want steel buns, you know, doing their little exercises. But
she didn't have expensive urine, because she died of a ruptured
cerebral aneurysm. When they don't do an autopsy, the symptoms
could be called a stroke, or subdural hemorrhage. Very frequently they are
caused by a ruptured aneurysm, which is a copper
deficiency. She didn't have expensive urine.
