... I think Purrpelle meant that maybe you should add small amounts of sea salt to your diet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I eat celtic sea salt and himalayan sea salt regularly. I've heard raw foods are so high in potassium that you need sodium to balance it out sometimes.<br><br><br><br>
I've also heard that organic sodium, such as the sodium found in celery juice, is very beneficial for rebuilding our digestive tracts... and it helps us get back our high hydrochloric acid levels, or our digestive fire.

If you're eating a lot of fruit, you may have too much potassium and not enough sodium. Try eating lots of green leafy veggies, along with olives and some salty sea veggies like kelp and dulse.

Whenever I crave salt, I either eat tomatoes (their savory taste satisfies my craving) or eat something sweet (the first method is better, since eating something sweet may leave you with a sweet craving!)

I think a lot of people imagine there is something wrong with salt. It is one of the most natural and necessary parts of our diet. If you crave salt... enjoy it.<br><br>
Also... people who are told to limit salt are usually people who have eaten ridiculous diets for decades and are way hypertensive and overweight. Someone who eats with respect for their food *(e.g. a rawfood person) should not ignore, nor dismiss, a craving for a mineral that our ancestors have been craving for millions of years.<br><br>
Also (again, sorry)... Children naturally crave sugar, adults naturally crave salt. I think thats part of nature.

I personaly think that celtic (unrefined sun-dried hand-harvested) sea salt is fine on the most pure of raw diets in limited amounts - but thats it (no refined at all). and thats just my opinion.

I agree. Salt is needed in moderation for the adrenals. Good sea salt is important.<br><br><br><br>
It is also vital to maintaining good hydration in the summer.<br><br><br><br>
It also helps balance the potassium/sodium balance in our body since many raw foods are very rich in potassium.<br><br><br><br>
Celery juice is very rich in sodium... and very healing for the digestive tract
