Found only in food, organic sodium is needed for utilization of oxygen.
Lack of organic sodium can cause the following problems: lack of hydrochloric acid, indigestion, weak muscles and tissues, stiff and misshapen joints, arthritis, osteoporosis, difficult breathing, catarrh or mucous, lack of saliva, sleepy during the day and awake at night, feeling good one day and bad the next, slow digestion, constipation, gas in stomach and bowels, palpitation, liver trouble, weak eyesight, nerves on fire, judgment unreliable, stiff joints, bloating, gas in bowels, dry skin, confusion, frontal headache, offensive breath, poor concentration, weak heart, emotional ups and downs, and a poor complexion.
Lack of organic sodium is the forerunner of most chronic and degenerative diseases, such as AIDS, cancer blood diseases and many other diseases, because it is one of the most important, if not the most important buffer of acids for the body. Ninety-nine people out of 100 are lacking organic sodium.
Good sources of organic sodium are celery, black mission figs, carrots, beets, all greens (collard, mustard, kale, turnip, carrot tops, beet tops), and parsley.
Sodium chloride or table salt has the opposite effect of organic sodium
Stay away from sodium chloride as if your life depended on it.
Table salt causes organic sodium to be taken out of the body, and causes more damage to normal intestinal mucosa than any other substance! The body cannot use the inorganic minerals found in sea salt, table salt or sodium chloride. These inorganic minerals are extremely harmful to us — they cause hardening of the arteries, heart trouble, digestive problems, and they extract helpful organic minerals from our bodies! Some people may temporarily feel better taking in certain types of sodium chloride, but only because of the stimulating toxic effect it has on the body — similar to refined sugar.
A doctor-prescribed low-sodium diet will cause more harm than good, unless it only restricts intake of table salt and encourages the eating of foods containing organic sodium.
The sodium in table salt pushes calcium into the urine and increases the risk of developing “calcium citrate” kidney stones. You might think someone with calcium kidney stones should stay away from calcium-rich foods such as cheese, milk and other dairy products. However, that isn’t necessary, and, in fact, it promotes stone formation. If you develop calcium citrate kidney stones you can — and should — eat cheese and drink milk. The best way to get rid of calcium kidney stones is to increase your intake of organic alkalizing minerals.
Organic calcium is abundant in Homemade Alkalizing Soup
Calcium is a vital mineral that helps maintain strong teeth and bones. Calcium has also been known to assist in alleviating the chances of certain types of cancers.
A study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, June 2007, reported that women taking 1,400 to 1,500 mg of calcium per day had a 47% lower incidence of cancer when compared with those taking a placebo. (Note: Better results were achieved when Vitamin D was taken with the calcium.)
The Washington University School of Medicine found in another study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May 2007 that calcium from food is better absorbed by the human body than calcium from supplements. Women who took an average of 830 mg of calcium from food had higher bone density in their spines and hips than women who averaged 1,030 mg of calcium daily from pills.
For most people, a daily intake between 1000 and 1500 mg of calcium is recommended. Dairy products are good sources of calcium. An 8-ounce glass of milk contains about 300 mg of calcium. Two slices of firm cheeses, such as American, Swiss, cheddar or mozzarella have about as much calcium as a glass of milk. Softer cheeses, like cottage cheese, most often contain ? to ½ this amount of calcium per serving. Almonds contain 100 mg in a 2-ounce serving (soak raw almonds in distilled water for 5 to 8 hours before eating as this will remove their enzyme inhibitors making them easier to digest).
Calcium from supplements or added to juice and cereal can cause more harm than good as the body cannot use inorganic calcium due to the molecules being too large.
The only supplemental minerals that are recognized by the body as organic are those found in food (the result of the photosynthesis action of the sun on growing plants) and Water Oz colloidal minerals (made by a highly technical, revolutionary process with a laser and then treated with ozone gas, which produces an angstrom size mineral that is water soluble and able to grow crystals as are minerals from plants). (Please see our Product List for Water Oz Minerals. Water Oz “Water of Life” contains 72 colloidal trace minerals.)
Organic potassium is abundant in Homemade Alkalizing Soup
Potassium is the principal positive ion inside of the cells of the body and is used in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, and normal kidney function.
Potassium is effective in lowering blood pressure. Just a one to two percent reduction translates into a reduced risk of strokes. Potassium also helps reduce the incidence of kidney stones, heart arrhythmias, and decreases the risk of cancer.
Potassium benefits bones by neutralizing acids in the bloodstream, which stops the leaching of calcium from our bones.
There is no Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for potassium. The minimum amount per day for adults is 2,000 milligrams, although many experts advise that a better minimum level would be around 3,500 milligrams. A low intake is defined as about 2,500 milligrams a day or less, while 4,000 to 4,500 milligrams a day is considered to be high. The typical U.S. diet provides about 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams a day.
Bring the Body’s pH into Balance with Homemade Alkalizing Soup
Drinking mineral-rich homemade alkaline soup is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve your health. It is one of the best methods of bringing the body’s pH into balance, increasing cell respiration, and improving digestion. Alkaline soup will greatly assist the body in bringing both excess acidity and alkalinity back to normal. It will give the body many different organic angstrom size minerals especially the big three — organic sodium, organic potassium, and organic calcium. These are the most important minerals in today’s society, because we take in too many acid-forming foods as well as acid-forming chemicals in our food and air. All drugs, whether prescribed or over-the-counter, and all infections, whether acute or chronic, cause a dangerous acidic condition in the body. Acids are also produced by worry, stress and other emotional problems. An over acid body exhausts our adrenal glands, which leads to a compromised immune system. The best way to solve the problem of over acidity is to drink at least two cups of alkalizing soup every day.
