you present the problem of hypertension and salt intake/regulation but you do not offer any hint of solution to the problem of hypertension, i sure wish you would no one in this thread has yet, which sucks, cause the only ones interested in this issue would be the ones with this issue, offer a solution, such as

how the hell do you solve hypertension and fluid retention. what diet helps that?

seaweed, our ancestors ate alooooot of seaweed, it is the only source of iodine,

btw typical tablespoon of salt has about 0.001% the amount of iodine you need in a day

over 80% of americans are heavily deficient of iodine, the other 20% being big seaweed eaters(sushi)



take iodine supplements if you are concerned about thyroid health, i do, take it every day

this is the one i use www.jcrowsmarketplace.com...

i just put a few drops on the skin and rub it around once a day, it absorbs into the skin and right to the thyroid,

been doing this ever since the japan earthquake.....

there is irradiated iodine in the moisture release from a nuclear reactor (fukushima) an iodine deficient diet will absorb this polluted iodine from the rain resulting in extreme thyroid related health issues, haveing a diet with a surplus of iodine ensures you do not absorb those pollutants as readily, and contrary to popular belief, you cannot overdose of iodine without drinking many glasses of it all at once, the body pee's out the excess quite easily, similar to vitamen c,

much more can be said about the positive effects of iodine on the body, more energy, easier to think, cleans pollutents from the body and the skin even oils, clears oils which slow electrical firing from the brain alowing you to think faster, cleans flouride out of your system, cleans bromine out of your system, said to aid the 3rd eye (pineal gland), the list goes on read up on it for more www.jcrows.com...

i can attest to feeling a difference in all those areas in my health over the last year of taking it.

If you're overweight, type 2 diabetic, pre-diabetic or insulin resistant, you are most likely hyperinsulinemic--high levels of insulin in the blood. The reason all of these diseases are almost always accompanied by hypertension is because of insulin.

Insulin causes sodium retention which, in turn, causes water retention and, subsequently, hypertension. Any diet that effectively lowers serum insulin levels will almost always result in a reduction in blood pressure.

The only die that does this is a low-carbhoydrate diet. Replace the easily digestible carbohydrates--breads, pastas, sugar, grains and potatoes--with green/leafy vegetables. Done.

The best way to keep down water retention is to eat something most of our ancestors ate but we no longer eat. Dandelion greens or root. I was surprised to find that almost all the older people I know ate dandelions when they were kids. These people are now in their late seventies to early eighties.

Thank you so much for putting together all that research.

It is kinda funny that they claimed that high blood pressure and heart disease were allegedly caused by salt. Heart Disease is caused by clogged arteries. Clogged arteries are caused by years of eating fatty foods and bad diet. There's no fat in salt.

As for high blood pressure.... the opposite is true at least in my case. I have extremely low blood pressure. I mean so low that it doesn't register on some of those machines that they use to take a pulse. If I were to be knocked unconscious and someone tried to use a machine to get my pulse, they might actually think I were dead. The only way to take my pulse is by hand and a nurse has to dig into my wrist vein to feel it.

Because I always had super low blood pressure, I thought if I ate more salt that hopefully it might increase it. It never worked. No matter how much salt I ate, I couldn't increase my blood pressure. I guess I had hoped that if I ate enough salt that it would take my low blood pressure and turn it into normal blood pressure. It just didn't work, even if I salted everything: apples, pizza...yadda yadda.

Of course, one branch of my family were salt farmers in Ireland for thousands of years, so it might be possible that salt farmers developed some gene giving them low blood pressure no matter how much salt they ate.

I don't eat as much salt now...but I switched to that grey sea salt, rather than the processed bleached white table salt. The grey sea salt has a lot of minerals in it that are stripped out of regular table salt. Actually feels better to get the minerals out of the sea salt.

There's just no way that increased salt increases blood pressure. Because believe me, I tried my hardest to increase my blood pressure with salt and it never worked, not even when I salted everything.

So, let me get this right. What I have gotten from all the replies in this thread is:

High blood pressure is caused/increased because of water retention.
Water retention is caused by sodium retention.
Sodium retention is caused by higher insulin levels.
High carbohydrate diets raise insulin levels.

Therefore, if you eat a low-carb diet, it should in theory help to lower your blood pressure?

Interesting!

Salt is usually found in foods high in Tyramine, the tyramine actually raises the blood pressure by constricting the blood vessels and pushing more blood into the muscles. Tyramine turns into adrenaline, Saratonin, and many other necessary chemicals. Eating lots of foods that contain tyramines can raise blood pressure. If you eat a lot of these foods, take a copper supplement if your BP is high or stop eating foods that are maoi inhibitors.

YES! That's precisely what studies have shown.

I read that in ancient times, people believe Salt would help getting rid of Demons.

I wonder if it's just a metaphor for something in our body, perhaps 'bad' bacteria or viruses?

peace.

potassium chloride works just as good in helping your body retain water and your body needs the potassium for the heart.


To a point. Too much potassium and you stop your heart just as fast as too little.

Salt was as highly sought after as gold at one point... some believe it was more valuable.
