Very interesting article and I love the presentation. Salt has many uses-other than as an enhancer of flavor and for preserving meat.
Salt can also be an easy way to clear any "presence" or negative vibes that can invade a home.Salt has always been known for its protective qualities from way back to the Biblical times. With the popularity of paranormal and like topics and tv shows, won/t harm to keep a small package of salt for anyone who ventures into the wods ,camp somewhere out of the way, or just short travelsé road trips.

for about 30 years I avoided salt at all costs, because I drilled it into my head that salt was bad because it raised blood pressure. eventually, every blood test showed that I was salt-deficient, and my blood pressure was lower than normal. my dr told me to eat a bag of chips once in a while. but I was too rigid. I couldn't get the "salt in moderation" idea. last year I fainted twice (once, breaking my ankle). now I eat salt in moderation. live and learn. It's been very hot in my region. recently my heart was skipping a beat here and there. and I felt "something". at first I thought it was anxiety. after 2 days, I wondered if it was something physical. I drank Gatorade and the problem resolved. moderation is a gift. Blessings

thanks. I think I'll stick to plain sea-salt. Don't really have the energy or money to chase up Kosher salt. Anyway, at the end of the day I really don't use salt in cooking or on food much so it's rare it's even in my house.
