Why You Have Unintentional Chronic Dehydration and How To Cure It

salt

SALT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT NATURAL COMPOUNDS KNOWN TO MAN. IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE. 

So why are doctors coming out left and right talking about how bad salt is for you? That’s because those doctors are talking about table salt. The bleached and man made white kind of salt that’s over heated and stripped of all its trace minerals. Cool, thanks for the tip Doc… but what about Real Salt?

I have noticed improvements to my overall health and well being since supplementing with Real Salt.

The way I supplement is easy. I just add 3/4 teaspoon of Real Salt to 1 quart of  filtered drinking water 3 times a day.

I first read about this recipe in a great book that I highly recommend called Your Body’s Many Cries for Water by Dr. Batmanghelidj.

THERE ARE MANY GREAT BENEFITS TO DRINKING WATER WITH REAL SALT.

Real Salt has some really good benefits:

  • Hydrates your cells.
  • Prevent and eliminate muscle cramps.
  • Required for blood, sweat, digestive juices and efficient nerve transmission.
  • Improves brain function.
  • Makes you a stronger human.
  • Kills pathogens such as bad bacteria and parasites.

REAL SALT HYDRATES YOUR CELLS

If you are thirsty, it means your cells are already dehydrated.

The feeling of thirst doesn’t even develop until body fluids are depleted well bellow levels required for optimal functioning.

Here are some signs that you are dehydrated.

If you have dry mouth…

Chapped lips…

Dry Skin…

Decreased coordination…

Fatigue…

Yellow urine. A hydrated body produces clear and colorless urine.

Dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose…

Blood pressure changes…

Impairment of judgment…

Stress..

Headache…

Back pain…

Allergies…

Asthma…

And many other degenerative health problems are the result of UCD or (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration).

Also, if you’re drinking 1-3 cups of coffee a day.

Tea, coffee and soft drinks do contain water, but the diuretics contained in these beverages flush water out of your body.

Don’t count on them to replenish fluid loss.

Always ❤️ the opportunity to spend time down in our salt mine 😃 #americaspinksalt

REAL SALT IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTION

Sodium is an vital element in the development of brain and improvement of brain functions. Deficient sodium levels in body can affect the brain leading to lethargy, confusion and dizziness. This probably explains why I no longer suffer from bouts of ‘staring into space’ and now have an absolute laser like focus.

SALT CAN PREVENT AND ELIMINATE MUSCLE CRAMPS

When you’re sick and dehydrated and you go to the hospital what’s the first thing they give you? SALINE SOLUTION. What is Saline Solution? You guessed it, salt water. Muscle cramps are largely caused due to electrolyte imbalance & dehydration and are quite common in the summer months. Sodium is responsible for muscle contraction and hydration. Sodium rich juices and fluids help to restore the amount of electrolyte. It’s a shame that so many people are scared of it. What’s even worse is that most doctors tell you to avoid it. Probably the same reason no one uses the compliments “salt of the earth” and “worth one’s salt” anymore. To be ‘worth one’s salt’ actually means to be worth one’s pay. Our word salary derives from the Latin salarium, (sal is the Latin word for salt) and in ancient times some people even got paid in salt. Wars have been fought over salt. “But Thor I drink Gatorade that has all the electrolytes I need.” Gatorade is crap filled with sugar and coloring. Cut out the middle man. Cut out the crap. Do it yourself. Just put 3/4 teaspoon of Real Salt in a quart of water and drink it.

REAL SALT IS REQUIRED FOR BLOOD, SWEAT, DIGESTIVE JUICES AND EFFICIENT NERVE TRANSMISSION.

Salt is a vital ingredient in having good health. In fact, no electrolyte is more essential to human survival than salt.

The sodium you get from salt is what allows nerves to send and receive electrical impulses. It is what makes your muscles stay strong. It’s what makes your brain work. It’s actually what makes every cell in your body function.

Drinking salt water gave me strength. I shattered all my personal records and became stronger in every single lift and exercise I did.

REAL SALT IS ANTIBACTERIAL

“Go gargle your mouth out with warm salt water!”

Who was ever told that by their mom or dad when dealing with a sore throat? I know I was. Little did any of us know there was a very good reason for that. That’s because salt water is a highly effective antibiotic. Apart from organisms evolved to live in salty water, it is highly lethal to a large variety of common microbes.

This means it can kill bad bacteria and parasites that are now robbing many people of their health and vitality.

If you live in a populated city.

If you eat out at restaurants.

If you travel a lot.

Chances are your body is being overwhelmed by pathogens like bad bacteria and parasites.

Kill those bastards before they kill you.

Drink water enriched with REAL SALT.

PEOPLE ARE USING REAL SALT TO CURE LYME DISEASE

Pretty crazy right? Didn’t believe me that salt is antibacterial?

Check out lymephotos.com to get a real glimpse of that in action.

Read this quote from their website:

Our theory is that due to the decreased consumption of salt in our daily diets, we have allowed the invasion of parasites into our bodies and those of our pets and livestock. Over the centuries, man has traditionally consumed approximately 20 grams of salt daily. The only time, other than current day, that man’s consumption has drastically decreased was during the Medieval Ages, when the landlords deprived the poor of salt, and the Black Death ravaged the population. Salt is an ancient bactericide, and killer of many of man’s pathogens. For centuries, twenty grams of salt daily was the average intake due to the way meats were cured and foods were preserved. Man certainly lived a more outdoorsman’s lifestyle, yet there was no mysterious illness. Was it the presence of sodium chloride in his body that prevented Lyme from occurring? Lyme was first documented in the 1970’s. It is around the same time we were inundated with the “No Salt Diet” craze. For years Japan had no cases of Lyme disease, and only recently with the new low salt soy sauce have cases been documented. As far as our animals go, cows were always given large blocks of salt licks, which were pure sodium chloride. The old ways protected our livestock from many pathogens that are coming into focus in today’s society. Just recently, these blocks have become mineralized salt licks with minerals, medicines, and vitamins, that manufacturers claim is what our livestock need. They actually need the sodium chloride. This may explain the recent appearance of new illnesses such as Lyme, Mad Cow, and other parasitic illnesses among our livestock. They crave the sodium chloride. It is a natural instinct. Just the same way that a hunter knows that if he puts out a block of salt, the deer will come. Bear reportedly tear the bark off fallen trees to lick salt. There are salt caves in Africa that draw herds of elephants at night, and the mothers break off chucks of salt and fed it to their young. Maybe it is time we take a lesson from the animals. Eat more salt!

HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH WATER TO DRINK?

This is very important.

Drinking too much water can be just as bad as drinking not enough.

To know how much water you have to drink you cut your body weight in half and drink that amount in ounces.

So I weigh 220 pounds of mostly muscle. I drink 110 ounces of water a day.

If you weigh 300 pounds drink 150 ounces of water a day.

If you weight 150 pounds drink 75 ounces of water a day.

Just remember to add a 3/4 teaspoon of Real Salt to each quart you consume for optimum hydration.

You will be making yourself a better human.

How To Save Over $500 A Year By Never Buying A Plastic Water Bottle Again

filter

 

I bought this New Wave Enviro 10 Stage Water Filter on July 4th, 2015 and I am very pleased with it. It saves me money. It’s convenient. It was easy to install. It tastes great and eliminates contaminants.

IT SAVED ME MONEY

I made a resolution to stop spending money on plastic water bottles. Which I was spending around $300-$600 a year on at least. Now I never have to stop at the store to use my hard earned cash buying water in cheap plastic bottles.

IT’S CONVENIENT

Instead of having to worry about going out of my way to buy water bottles I just use my New Wave Enviro 10 Stage Water Filter to fill up my 32 ounce mason jar or my Nalgene Tritan 1 quart Narrow mouth BPA free water bottle before leaving the house. Now it’s very easy to drink my required 3 quarts of water per day.

IMG_3697

That’s my mason jar

IT WAS EASY TO INSTALL

All I had to do was attach it to my faucet and it was up and running within a minute. I was hesitant in getting a filter for a long time because I didn’t want to install a unit under my sink and always have to worry about going down there to replace the filters. That takes time and money because chances are you have to hire someone like a plumber to make sure everything gets put in the right way. This was so easy to install. There will be no hiring of anyone. It is also very easy to uninstall which means you can travel with it. A big advantage when leaving the country or going on vacation.

IMG_3752 (1)

There it is, just sitting on my kitchen sink looking all pretty.

IT TASTES GREAT AND ELIMINATES CONTAMINANTS 

“The Ten Stage Premium Water Filter System produces a continuous supply of clean filtered water and removes major contaminants to below EPA minimum levels. The Ten Stage Premium Filter removes or greatly reduces the following: Chlorine, Cancer causing organic/chlorine compounds called Trihalomethanes (THM), bad odors, e.g., Hydrogen Sulfide which gives water a rotten egg smell, Pesticides, Herbicides, PCB’s, Toxic Heavy Metals i.e., Lead, Cadmium, Organic Arsenic, Asbestos, Micro-organisms (protozoa and cysts) such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, and dozens of other lesser known organic contaminants.”

You can then go in and add a quarter tea spoon of Redmonds Real Salt to your freshly filtered quart of water ensuring you receive optimum hydration, trace minerals and essential electrolytes.

In conclusion, after buying this filter my drinking water tastes great, I’m more healthy because I’m hydrated and am saving a lot of money.

How To Relieve Your Back Pain By Wearing Minimalist Footwear

borntorun

“Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.

Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence. With the help of Caballo Blanco, a mysterious loner who lives among the tribe, the author was able not only to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumara but also to find his own inner ultra-athlete, as he trained for the challenge of a lifetime: a fifty-mile race through the heart of Tarahumara country pitting the tribe against an odd band of Americans, including a star ultramarathoner, a beautiful young surfer, and a barefoot wonder.” –Born To Run by Christopher McDougall

Humans have been bare foot running for 200,000 years.

Somewhere along the way it become uncool. That’s weird. Good marketing. Bad programming.

Little known face, high heel shoes actually were first invented for short men with insecurity issues.

Why do we keep going against nature?

Humans were designed to walk barefoot and you don’t even have to be a runner to wear these. You just have to be human.

When I Wear Minimalist Footwear I feel great.

I’m actually addicted to the barefoot type of sneaker and it’s hard for me to go back and wear regular pairs now.

I’ve heard the same thing from people who get addicted to wearing Vans, another zero drop type of sneaker.

I own a few different pairs from different companies but I like the company VIVO a lot.

They even have casual options for those with a sense of style .

Footwear with an elevated sole can be bad for you. (link)

Footwear with a heel can be really bad for you. (link)

Don’t do things that might be bad for you.

Wear minimalist footwear. Because when you do, every step you take feels like a mini ground massage. Reflexology at its finest.

Your feet will thank you. The neglected and under worked muscles in your ankles and calves will thank you. God will thank you.

Wearing barefoot sneakers makes you a stronger human.

Your posture will be better.

Your performance will be better.

Making a switch to minimalist footwear can even help with knee and back pain.

It’s also a great way to rehab from an ankle injury because it can build up those weak muscles to prevent more injuries in the future.

They’re also great for lifting weights. All the best weight lifters wear minimalist footwear.

Even Arnold.

image0011

They are so light and easy that it’s hard for me to put on a pair of work boots after I get accustomed to the feel. They’re actually very addicting.

When you wear these you’re affecting your alignment for the better. Don’t over complicate what you put on your feet. Wear Minimalist footwear.

Buy a pair of minimalists on Amazon.

Because Barefooters do it better.

How To Beat Inflammation Using Turmeric

What is a Spice?

Let me grab a quote from the Wikipedia Spice page:

A spice is a dried seed, fruit, root, bark, or vegetable substance primarily used for flavoring, coloring or preserving food.

Spices are distinguished from herbs, which are parts of leafy green plants used for flavoring or as a garnish.

Many spices have antimicrobial properties. This may explain why spices are more commonly used in warmer climates, which have more infectious disease, and why the use of spices is prominent in meat, which is particularly susceptible to spoiling.

When I eat Turmeric my brain tingles.

Turmeric_BNC

Curcumin, the main ingredient in the spice turmeric, is currently the subject of intense scientific inquiry, especially as it relates to the brain.

Interventions designed to reduce inflammation using natural substances like turmeric have been described in medical literature dating back more than two thousand years.

It actually has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian (ayurvedic) medicine for thousands of years.

Even though it is well know for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, its ability to increase BDNF (Brain-derived neurotrophic factor) in particular is what is getting the attention of neuroscientists around the world.

That’s the part that got my attention too. It’s a brain enhancer.

Turmeric is crazy because it has the ability to activate genes to produce a vast array of antioxidants that serve to protect our mitochondria. It also improves glucose metabolism.

Basically a bunch of epidemiologists figured out that communities that use turmeric in abundance have WAY less dementia.

So people are using this spice as a way to prevent and relieve symptoms of Alzheimers and dementia.

You should definitely add this amazing spice to your daily protocol.

Chances are you don’t want to eat curry everyday though. So the good news is you can take it as a supplement. It is a water-soluble supplement so it’s metabolized pretty fast. That also means it’s probably best to take it twice daily.

I take 400 mg twice daily and even sprinkle the powder on certain food dishes.

The bottom line is I take this because it enhances my brain function and has powerful antioxidant effects that neutralize free radicals as it stimulates my body’s own antioxidant enzymes. Yeah… it’s pretty bad ass.

You can go to your local health food store and pick some up or purchase right now here on Amazon.

How To Be Healthy While Still Eating Chocolate

A lot of people ask me about my diet and what I eat on a regular basis.

Right now, I’m fully committed to the plant based diet and I couldn’t be any more happy.

What is the plant based diet? Mostly plants.

Like this plant based breakfast:

The good news is, chocolate is a plant and so is coconut!

“Chocolate will make you feel better.” -GOD

Nourish your mind and body and satiate your hunger with healthy fats, protein and fiber!

WARNING: THESE ARE ADDICTING AND AMAZINGLY GOOD FOR YOU.

CHOCOLATE + COCONUT = PARADISE INSIDE YOUR BODY.

Coconut is a super-nutrient food, nourishes your brain and body, satiating hunger with healthy fats, protein and fiber.

When you eat coconut, the MCTs it contains are transported from the intestinal tract to the liver and immediately transformed into fuel.

This then means there is very little fat left to circulate and leave deposits in the body.

EATING COCONUT CAN PREVENT AGAINST HEART DISEASE AND STROKE.

As it turns out, coconut meat’s measurable vitamins A and E, and polyphenols and phytosterols, all work together to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol.

DARK CHOCOLATE IS EVERYONE’S FAVORITE CHEAT FOOD.

Dark chocolate is one of natures strongest antioxidants.

That means it’s really good at getting toxins out of your body.

Toxins are bad. They will kill you.

Eat dark chocolate and live.

Dark chocolate contains hundreds of blissful, health-promoting properties that support a positive mood and healthy cognition.

This is a brain-healthy treat that won’t make you fat and should never make you feel guilty. Eat as many as your heart desires. Then run to the gym in your weighted vest.

ALSO IT IS GLUTEN FREE!
