Is Pink Salt Poisonous?

Many of us have started doing the pink salt flush and we also use pink salt for an iodized salt substitute.

While doing research I’ve found that pink salt is a poison with long-term use as it will cause a negative bio accumulation.

Key things to know and look into

1) Unlike the human body, it’s not inorganic.

2) Its chemical profile is not below 9 atomic cluster

3) No enzymes

4) No Lithophilic organisms https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithophile

5) Contains lots of heavy metals (see profile) http://themeadow.com/pages/minerals-in-himalayan-pink-salt-spectral-analysis

6) It’s also not not amphoteric, so it’s going to have issues with the sodium and potassium process

I started using sun dried sea salt after I brought some back from my last trip home. You should be able to find it here or look for bamboo salt or Celtic salt. You will have great results using those with the flush.

Peace and love …..

Alkaline Ionized Water May Damage Your Health

Can Alkaline Ionized Water Damage Health?

Up until now the long-term health effects of drinking alkaline ionized water have been poorly understood, even by its proponents. However, a search of the public medical record turns up significant independent scientific evidence that if you drink ‘alkaline ionized water’ it could be one of the worst things you can do! While the short-term consumption of Alkaline Water may lead to feelings of increased energy and general well-being, according to the following independent clinical studies on laboratory rats (indicative of its effect on humans) the long-term consumption of synthetically created water, alkaline water can actually induce pathological (i.e.; life threatening) changes in the heart muscle.

“Hyperkalemia was observed in males and females given AKW [electrically ionized water] at 15 weeks. Especially in males, pathological changes of necrosis in myocardiac muscle were observed.” –Influences of Alkaline Ionized Water on Milk Electrolyte Concentrations in Maternal Rats, Journal of Toxicological Sciences. 2000 Dec;25(5):417-22. Auth. Watanabe T, Kamata H, Fukuda Y, Murasugi E, Sato T, Uwatoko K, Pan IJ

Hyperkalemia is a potentially life-threatening illness that leads to sudden death from cardiac arrhythmias i.e.; heart attack. “The myocardial lesion in the mother rats given Alkaline Water showed cell infiltration, vacuolation [a vacuole is a hole in the cytoplasm of a cell] and fibrosis in the papillary muscle of the left ventricle, as were observed in male rats of 15 weeks old.

Myocardial degeneration may cause a leakage of potassium into the blood that results in a higher concentration of potassium in the blood in the test group than in that of the control group given tap water.” — Histopathological Influence of Alkaline Ionized Water on Myocardial Muscle of Mother Rats. Journal of Toxicological Sciences. 1998 Dec;23(5):411-7. Auth. Watanabe T, Shirai W, Pan I, Fukuda Y, Murasugi E, Sato T, Kamata H, Uwatoko K.”

Instructions for sauce:

4

Mix everything together. Heat on the stove for 5 min. then remove from the burner. You can make this while the jackfruit is baking.

5

Instructions for jackfruit:

6

Mix all the dry ingredients together and thoroughly coat the jackfruit.

7

Lay the breaded pieces out on parchment paper, foil or a baking pan.

8

Using a spray bottle filled with water, spray the breaded jackfruit just enough so the breading is moist

9

Flip the jackfruit and do the same on the other side.

10

Once done put them in the oven and bake until crunchy.

11

If they are not getting crunchy after about 30 minutes, remove them from the oven and fry them in some grapeseed oil.

12

When you have achieved the desired look of crunchiness, immediately place them in your prepared sauce.

Notes

Fresh jackfruit is best, but if you use canned, make sure it is in water, not syrup. Boil canned jackfruit in water for 30 minutes to take out the sodium and preservatives. After 30 minutes, change the water and boil for another 30 minutes. After the 2nd boil, strain out all of the water and rinse the jackfruit in warm water.
