Himalayan Salt - Health Benefits....or not!

Subject: Himalayan Salt

Question:I would like your opinion on the validity of the claims of health benefits of Himalayan Salt. Are you aware of any clinical studies, real scientific research, or authoritative publications on its benefits? Or is it a sham?  Thank you for your time, and opinion.

Answer:

Hello Jane:

Thanks for asking this question about whether or not Himalayan salt has any health benefits.  Here's my reply...

Rocks in Your Head
Himalayan salt is also called also called Rock Salt and its origin is from Pakistan. There are several varieties of Himalayan salt and all are similar in chemical composition. Is this stuff good for you? Well, as a longevity doctor I'm interested in anything and everything that might either slow, reverse or somehow improve the aging process. This stuff however will not do any of these things. 

No Science Beyond Himalayan Salt
Sure we need salt to live, but this particular salt has not been demonstrated in scientific studies to have a unique health benefit beyond that of common table salt. There are no studies posted on the National Library of Medicine website scientific data base - this research data base contains studies from 1966 to the present and contains over 3 million citations.  Having said this, just because scientific studies have not been performed does not mean that something, like Himalayan sale, is not healthful.  

Benefits of Salt
Salt itself is needed to help the body retain water, to help all of our body cells run appropriately and helps support our blood pressure and adrenal gland health.  Oh, and what about that salt thing and blood pressure increasing? Only 10% of the US population is salt sensitive meaning that the majority of us will not experience an increase in blood pressure by consuming salt. I have found that many people are actually deficient in sodium and chloride, the components of salt and suffer from fatigue, weak adrenal glands, reduced tissue healing,reduced physical and psychological stress tolerance, fluid retention, sluggish memory and other health issues. 

In summary, we need salt for longevity, too much is no good and too little is no good either. How much is too much? How much is just right? An adrenal profile blood test, dietary food intake review (of total salt content) and review of symptoms may hep figure this out. Also, a simple salt loading test, under supervision of a health professional, may also be useful.

Here are a list of my top pics for adrenal support:

Pregnancy & Nutrition: What to do

mwald

The amount of each nutrient should be based on a thorough food log of no less than 5 days long that records the time of consumption of foods and fluids, approximate amounts in ounces and time of day of consumption.  The amount of proteins, carbohydrates and fats should always be based on the woman's body weight in killograms related to her total caloric needs (medical charts exist that estimate the total caloric requirements of a pregnant woman). Other health issues might change the food recommendations for proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Foods should be emphasized and nutritional supplements given if needed only; however, a prenatal is a basic and is always recommended. The amount of folic acid, an important B-vitamin, helps to prevent birth defects (80% of BD are from deficiency of folic acid), but this vitamin must be supplement before pregnancy occurs to have this preventative effect.

We measure folic acid levels and a test that tell us if the women has a genetic problem with folic acid called homocysteine and supplement exactly what they need to normalize testing. Iron is given in the miligram dose range unless ever anemia exists and then the dosage is increased based on the woman's hemoglobin, hematocrit and red blood cell count.  Dietary intake does not guarantee that nutritional needs will be met.  Calcium is given usually at around the 1000-1500 mg range daily, but needs increase during lactation.  Vitamin D is only given if found deficient; as important as it is too much (relative to the woman's needs) can be teratogrnic (can cause birth defects just like too much vitamin A).  Zinc is only given if blood levels are low or if the woman displays signs of deficiency such as dry skin, hair loss, splitting nails, chronic infections, etc - but other issues can cause these symptoms as well. Overall, additional zinc is not recommended unless absolutely needed; the red blood cell zinc test is the best test not the serum zinc.  Vitamin E is not given as it can cause issues such as increasing bleeding time; if the woman has a deficiency it is of course supplemented at a minimum dose of 400 IUs per day. A B-complex is always given as the prenatal, but the levels of B-vitamins in prenatal are too low to be optimally useful and I like to give a better multivitamin that also has reasonable, and not too high (often true of prenatal vitamin).

The overall diet for a pregnant women should be ongoingly monitored for issues such as constipation, heart burn (reflux) diarrhea, back pain, fatigue, nausea, depression, headache and other issues common to pregnancy.
