H is for Himalayan Salt + Alkaline Recipes to Try

This is the eighth installment of our alkaline foods series where we feature a food from A-Z, sharing the benefits of the food along with suggested recipes to try!

H is for Himalayan Salt

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, “Today’s common table salt is a poison…Most common table salt is made up of chemicals that  pollute your body and wreak havoc on your health. Your table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the excessive heat alters the  natural chemical structure of the salt causing the potential for a myriad of  health challenges in your body.”

Himalayan Salt contains all of the 84 elements found in your body, is unpolluted and unprocessed, and holds the original vibrational frequencies. When doctors tell you to reduce your sodium intake they are not referring to natural Himalayan and sea salts which your body actually needs.

Himalayan Salt promotes health in many ways. It:

  • Regulates the water levels within the body for proper functioning
  • Promotes stable pH balance in the cells
  • Stabilizes blood sugar levels and blood pressure
  • May reduce the common signs of aging
  • Promotes cellular hydroelectric energy creation
  • Promotes the increased absorption of food
  • Aids in vascular health
  • Supports healthy respiratory function
  • Lowers the incidence of sinus problems
  • Reduces muscle cramps
  • Increases bone strength
  • Naturally promotes healthy sleep patterns
  • Creates a healthy libido
  • Prevents cellulite
  • Reduces chances of developing rheumatism, arthritis and gout as well as kidney and gall bladder stones

Himalayan Salt recipes to try:

Start using Himalayan salt whenever salt or sea salt is called for in a recipe.

A is for Avocado + Alkaline Recipes to Try

Today marks week one of our alkaline foods series, where we will highlight an alkaline food from A-Z, sharing the benefits of the food along with suggested recipes to try!

A is for Avocado

Alkaline diet pioneers Dr. Robert and Shelly Young consider the avocado to be “nature’s butter” and a perfect food, believing that you should consume 2-3 avocados per day!

While some people shy away from avocados mistakenly believing them to be fattening, science has shown that they contain mostly healthy fats, provide fuel for the body, and are easy to digest. Avocados are also a fruit, not a vegetable, despite their non-sweet taste.

Avocados are rich in nutrients, with vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, H, K and folic acid. They also contain magnesium, copper, iron, calcium, potassium and many other trace elements which help buffer acids. They provide all 18 of the essential amino acids plus 7 fatty acids, including omega 3 and 6. At 70-80% water, avocados are hydrating, contain more protein than cow’s milk, and more potassium than bananas.

Consuming the vitamins, minerals and amino acids found in avocados have shown many health benefits including: lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, ability to inhibit the growth of tumors (particularly prostate tumors), defends against diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and cancer, slows the aging process, protects against eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration, aid in red blood cell regeneration and the prevention of nutritional anemia.

Avocado recipes to try:

Other alkaline foods that start with A:

  • Artichoke
  • Asparagus
  • Amaranth
  • Almonds
  • Avocado oil
