Shaking up the Salt Myth-The Dangers of Salt Restriction

Are you restricting salt (sodium) because your doctor told you it will cause heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes? That idea was started from a very misleading "study" in the 1970's. 

More recent studies with much more scientific evidence have proven that low-sodium diets can actually be dangerous and in turn contribute to heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes along with other problems.

The type of salt is important however. Processed table salt is lacking in valuable minerals and actually contains man made chemicals and should be avoided. By following a whole foods, Paleo diet, and eliminating processed foods, excess sodium in your diet will be reduced anyways. And when you crave salt, add unrefined natural salts like Pink Himalyan or Sea salt.

CTV news video - Lyme Disease

Wake up Health Canada. Ticks don't carry passports...they cross country borders and it is time Canadians had access to health care for a Disease that obviously is not restricted to the US. 

The limited testing here in Canada means people are being misdiagnosed and going without treatment for years. In this case, a young boy has suffered for most of his young life because our health care system is ignorant in this regard.

His family is forced to seek treatment in the US which will be a financial challenge to say the least. 

How is this acceptable? Watch the video from CTV news here.
