    Anyone that says all salt is the same really doesn't know what is in "salt" particularly "table salt".

    "Table salt" includes generous quantities of processed fillers such as dextrose or silicon dioxide for anti-caking agents. If you are lucky. Some salt comes with a anti-caking agent derived from, containing, cyanide.

    @cori93437 I'm glad you've found some good doctors than as tons out there are sadly either just interested in money or don't have a clue about what the causes are and don't know how to find out so they just give you a pill. Good luck.

    As far as salt types... all salt is sodium chloride, some just has the benefit of having the extra minerals in it, and leaving out silly the additives.
    That would be natural Pink or Sea salts with "the benefit of having minerals", and processed table salt with "silly [] additives" that the natural salts leave out....

    So I already said what you said to correct me, but thanks.

    Believe me, I had a few that seriously just looked at me blankly, said "I really don't know, but hey... try these pills".
    When that happened I immediately fired them and found a new doctor. It took a few of those before I found some docs who were really interested in putting the puzzle pieces together. They diagnosed me pretty quickly and are seeking a good solution that returns my quality of life.

    I don't think he would be using Himalayan salt if he wasn't aware its not "the same" I think he was referring to the fact that it still has a good amount of sodium which is what his main issue is with seafood and in particular Shellfish in his uncommon or unique case. I can see where someone could have a unique or uncommon problem that may not be the same as others.

    I've heard some had issues with blood pressure with regular table salt and no problem at all with Real Salt but that may not apply to everyone in every instance. If you think you have a good doctor than its best to stick with it for now. Hopefully that surgery will turn out well and you can eat your fill of good seafood after.

    Before anyone deletes the thread, I MUST comment on this:

    I find this extremely disturbing. EXTREMELY.

    What if someone on Curezone tried an N=1 iodine protocol, and for some reason it didn't work for them, and they came back and say it didn't work? Would Curezone call them a "troll" and ban them? (Because, Grizz, this is exactly what you are threatening here.)

    If that's what they do, then no wonder Curezone is full of success stories... because they filter out all the failures! Purposely hiding negative results, and then claiming that the positive results are "research," is dangerous, immoral, and possibly illegal. Haven't Pharma companies been sued for stuff like this?

    Based on this comment alone, Curezone cannot be trusted.

    Nor am I sure that putting in the disclaimer to take supplements -- as Grizz often does -- is sufficient.

    Well if you really want to play at nit picking...

    "salt" is a chemical term that includes way more than NaCL. KCl and MgCl are also "salt".
    If you refer to "table salt" it is still inaccurate to merely talk about the "NaCl" portion because of all the other crap in it DOES have an impact on people. In fact, people need to be thinking about just how those fillers affect them. Granted some people are truly sensitive to NaCl, but others are sensitive to the fillers.

    You can't leave the fillers out of the discussion as if they don't matter. They are "processed" crap that affects the body.

    Note that Cori says "sodium," not salt. Note the the medical journal article says "sodium intake," not salt.
    They know that there is confusion in the vocabulary. So, again, I ask you: Are you referring to the "salt" as in the chemical formula NaCl, or the common usage of "salt" as the mixture of stuff evaporated from the ocean?

    Apparently the magic hoo-ha sea salters have real trouble with this. But until you make that distinction, your salt posts cannot be trusted.

    Wildwabbit, if you really want to be play at nitpicking, the chemical term "salt" refers to ANY nonorganic ionic compound, where the ions could be atomic or compounds. For example, magnesium nitrate is chemically, a salt. It doesn't have to be a chloride or even a halide. (I didn't want to get that detailed in the discussion.)

    I am NOT asking that you leave the fillers out! I am asking that you actually USE to term "filler," or "mineral" or "dextrose," or "NaCl." If the fillers are causing problem, fine. But SAY that "the fillers IN Morton salt" are causing problems. Don't say just "salt." Salt is a MIXTURE, and we don't know which component in the mixture that you are referring to.

    Why in the world would you want this thread deleted? There is a lot of good info here. I am not against intelligent discussion of any dangers if iodine, but the above mentioned people have not provided it. They have been sarcastic and vitriolic, with no respect for someone of a different point of view. I happen to be of the belief that conventional medicine has failed us, and we must try something different. This whole forum is about the same thing. Does Mark think grains in moderation are healthy? That's what most doctors believe. Mark goes against conventional wisdom on a regular basis. As Grizz has said over and over, there is no consensus on iodine. We are our own guinea pigs. We know that much higher levels of iodine were ingested in the past, and doctors used iodine much more freely to cure ailments and prevent infection before antibiotics. And we now are injesting much more bromine and fluoride than people did a century ago. Upping the amount of iodine we take above the RDA is not a crackpot idea.

So I am back to the level that I was increasing before for the last 2 months - an 8th of a drop a week. I felt GREAT the whole time that I was maintaining that level of increase. I thought I could step it up a little bit now that I finally made it to 1 whole drop, but I guess not. I'd rather take it slow and have my mood be stable than try to ramp up more quickly. Maybe in a few months when I've detoxed out some more toxins I'll be able to increase a bit more quickly, but obviously not now!

    Thanks for the link about the salt, I'll give it a read! Luckily I have no issues with drinking salt water. I used to do the Master Cleanse, which called for a salt water flush every morning! That's 32 oz. of water with 2 tsp. of salt! What's recommended for supplementing with iodine is nothing compared to that!

    One question I had though - the only info. I can find about salt supplementation on the breastcancerchoices.org site is for the salt flush protocol - 1/4 tsp. of salt in 1/2 cup of warm water, followed by 12-16 ounces of water. Is this what's recommended for daily salt intake as well?
    HappyPaleoGirl,

    I am thrilled this is working for you !

    Yes the Dr. Brownstein protocol calls for he following:
    - - ˝ tsp Natural Celtic Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Redmonds Salt or Hawaiin black salt
    - - - If the sea salt is pure white, it is unacceptable (minerals have been stripped out )
    - - 200 mcg selenium (L-selenomethionine preferred)
    - - 400 mg Magnesium - Glycinate preferred
    - - 2,000mg Vitamin C - Ester-C preferred - do not take with iodine
    - - ATP Cofactors caplet contains both 100mg B2 & 500mg B3 non-flushing in the correct ratio. Take 1/2 caplet with iodine up to 25mg, then one caplet for each 50 mg iodine,

    In addition, the following:
    * In addition to the daily ˝ teaspoon of natural sea salt taken with vitamins every day, if severe detox symptoms occur, we should also do the Salt Loading Protocol “Salt Flush.”
    ˝ tsp of Natural Sea Salt is dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water, followed immediately with 12-16 oz pure water. Repeat every 30-45 minutes until copious urination begins.
    * Repeat each day for up to 3 days if required to clear detox symptoms
    * or go back to a lower dose that was problem free and pulse dose.
    * Why the salt flush ? ?
    Pulse Dosing to clear the kidneys

    Pulse dosing of iodine has often helped our participants with detox symptoms: taking a 48 hour break from iodine supplementation as needed seems to enhance the kidneys' ability to excrete bromide and other toxins.

    PS) BEWARE OF FLUORIDATED SALT ! Read the labels.
    The powers that be are not content fluoridating water, toothpaste, bottled water, baby water, and a slew of priducts. Now they are adding fluoride to salt.
