Salt for your Health

High quality salt is vital to health and well-being. I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Selina DeLangre, the owner of Celtic Sea Salt. We discussed the importance of using unprocessed, whole salt which leaves the naturally occurring, essential minerals intact. She assured me that absolutely no additives are added, nor anything removed from the salt that would alter it. Also Selina told me how she personally goes to each harvesting site around the world to inspect their harvesting and purity practices.

When I asked Selina her opinion on the differences between Himalayan Salt and Celtic Sea Salt, she pointed out that Himalayan salt is a mined product, whereas Celtic Sea Salt is a sustainable, living, harvested product.

Fish Oil for Kids

NutriWest makes a very nice Fish Oil for kids: Children’s DHA/EPA which is theoretically chewable. It has a nice orange flavor to me – but tastes yucky to some kids. So James swallows the fish-shaped gummy capsules. He currently takes 3/day (from muscle testing), but I’ve also heard excellent results from parents who only give one/day.

My niece before taking these was doing expensive tutoring at Sylvan Learning Center and still struggling in school. One month after starting just one capsule/day she obtained straight A’s. And no more expensive tutoring!

Mercola Krill oil is also good. The size 4 capsules are the smallest capsule size available (about the size of a tic-tac) so they are a great way to teach your child to swallow capsules.

Children who don’t get lots of sea foods in their diet, their brains are starving for DHA/EPA. I encourage you to read the research/stories told by Weston A. Price, of traditional (primitive) cultures who recognized the vital importance of foods from the sea for children (and pregnant women). Mountain tribes in the Andes would hike down 12,000 feet to get sea products. Other stories tell of peoples who would trade for these sea foods with neighboring tribes even when they were at war with each other.
