About Phil

A doctor taught me to never take pharmaceutical drugs or vaccines. I have made efforts to learn everything about natural cures and healing since.

    Real salt gave me a really BIG headache when I added a 1/4 teaspoon into a
    quart of filtered water.

  2. Pat Riley has a very small hot dog.

    Would 4 beers tonight kill me if I’m trying to salt my way to health

  3. Since I started iodine therapy I crave salt… I also haven’t felt this
    good in over 20 years

    Get your minerals and sodium from fruits and vegetable. This presentation
    has no facts or supporting data. “The truth” – the minerals in salt are
    small, why risk your health. The doctor needs to tell the truth! If a
    person is on a health plant base diet (natural sodium), etc. then their
    sodium levels will be normal. The body has no nutritional need for salt,
    refined or unrefined! Eat a celery!

    • +elizabeth williams You are very misinformed. Without the right kind of
      salt you cannot clear toxic bromine from your kidneys. Did you even listen
      to this presentation or are you just so sure of your expertise that you
      don’t believe you can learn anything from this internationally recognized
      holistic health practitioner?

  5. im not sure but i think without enough total sodium a kidney requires a
    bigger pressure to eliminate the same amount of waste.because were sodium
    goes water follows, if you cant dump water because of low sodium you do the
    osmotic trick with higher pressure.

  6. 23 minutes into lecture and all i have seen is unrefined salt has minerals.

  7. is road salt the unrefined kind?

  8. last week i went to my doctor, i eat a paleo diet , one cooked meat meal,
    one raw vegtable meal, one fruit meal per day. to the cooked meal i added
    about 100 mg of salt. the doctor suggested i cut back on salt. without
    even knowing what i eat or how i cook.

  9. Has there been any correlation or studies that adding unrefined salt (
    Himalayian salt) to a diet may reduce symptoms of palpitations , ie PVC or
    PAC’s ?

  10. charlotte gerson says all salt is bad for you tho, who is right?

    Our life, our planet. Over 70% of the earth’s surface is water. However,
    most of it—98%–is salt water. Only 2% of the earth’s H20 is fresh water
    that we can drink, and of this, almost all is trapped in frozen glaciers.

    You are not just what you eat; you are what you drink.

    This is why water is so important to your health.

    The Water Cure (TWC) does not sell water or purification systems or any
    related products. We offer insights and information; both free and in books
    that give you easy-to-understand scientific explanations on why water is
    vital to your well-being.

    TWC believes promoting “water for health, for healing, for life” is an
    invaluable public health message. We can all change the way we drink – by
    drinking pure, natural water that is good for our health, our pocket book,
    and our environment.

    No miracles. Just common sense backed by Dr. F. Batmaghelidj’s years of
    research and investigation into why water works so well in keeping us
    healthy and pain free. It can even cure illness in some people who get sick.

    Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles
    that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transport nutrients is
    82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain
    that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are
    25% water.

    Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we

    Dr. B’s pioneering work shows that Unintentional Chronic Dehydration (UCD)
    contributes to and even produces pain and many degenerative diseases that
    can be prevented and treated by increasing water intake on a regular basis.

    If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, make drinking enough natural
    water a habit in your life. It won’t take long for you to feel the benefit.

    It is a free investment for your long-term health.

  12. doc, when you are talking about iodine and iodide, I would urge you to
    pronounce the ending of ‘iodine’ just as you would the end of ‘chlorine’,
    ie as i-o-deen, not as i-o-dyne, so that the distinction is made more
    obvious, i-o-deen and i-o-dyde

    • +C Straley not quite, but I don’t know if it really makes any difference.
      Iodine is the pure element, purple-blue black crystals, that, dissolved in
      alcohol, give you the dark brown-purple solution you put on a wound. Iodide
      is the ion from this element, the form you find in compounds, or salts, of
      iodine. Eg potassium iodide or sodium iodide, and the salts are usually not
      colored. Your thyroid gland apparently stores some of both forms, but I
      don’t know whether you need to get both. Iodide is easy to get as a salt
      you can add to table salt or similar, but iodine is easiest to get from sea
      vegetables like kelp and seaweeds.

    • +C Straley oh, but you are confused about what I was talking about.
      Everything you said is true, but we’re not talking about protection against
      radiation damage here. the tablets they give for that usually contain
      iodine, not the iodide salt. This is about diet. The speaker spoke about
      the two forms of iodine in the diet as if they were the same thing. They
      are not. Iodine is an element which does not dissolve in water, but in fat
      or alcohol. Iodide is one part of a compound, a salt, which does dissolve
      in water, and as you say, that’s the form you’ll usually get your iodine
      in. On the other hand, he also drew a distinction between them, as if they
      acted differently, but he didn’t say what that difference was. That’s what
      I was complaining about.

    • I was actually issued sodium iodide pills during the first Gulf War while I
      was in the middle east. The pill form can be put in easy to issue packets
      versus other forms I imagine. I still have some. I also use Lugols liquid
      iodine and I have bleached iodine for topical use.I dont take them enough.

      I agree with you with respect to this gentleman being confusing. I think
      there might be a nugget or two of good info (for me) in his videos but I
      struggle to watch them because he takes so long to deliver the information.
      I usually tell people that if you say too much people will begin to “read
      into it” what they want to afterwards.

    • +C Straley FYI – Real Salt does come in capsule form called Re-Lyte – you
      can check out for more information.

  13. Dont put the salt in your eyes. It doesnt help when you rub it in your

  14. I can tell you as a patient of his practice………….the only sea salt
    in his practice is Celtic Sea Salt…………….I hope this helps you

  15. All this sounds interesting and will try unrefined salt but not Redman’s.
    I’m sure there may be truth to this but it so much sounds like the Doctor
    has stock in the company and is trying a sales pitch.

    • Thanks for taking a look at this Mike and for your comments. Our contact
      with Dr. Brownstein came through his book “Salt Your Way to Health” where
      he has a table of the breakdown of the major contents in both the Celtic
      Sea Salt and Redmond’s Salt (Real Salt brand). If you go to Dr.
      Brownstein’s web site ( you will see that he
      sells the Celtic Sea Salt. I do not thing that he is connected with Redmond
      in any way. Because Agri-Best Feeds and Real Salt sponsored this webinar,
      Dr. Brownstein focused on his passion for the value of unrefined sea salt
      and mentioned how the Redmond salt meets this definition.

    • +AgriBestFeeds I do not thing does not make since. If you mean think, then
      that means you are not sure or are not going to admit it.

    • +Mike Allen i think he mentioned real salt because they are a sponsor he
      mentioned he’s used it but on his site he only sells celtic sea salt, his
      stock in the company was that they were helping pay for the seminar

  16. the best for your health is Himalayan pink salt. Not just because of the
    purity and 82 minerals but it has a frequency to it. and transfers that to
    the human body. Look up Sole on you tube and it will tell you all about it.
    you get what you pay for, this is all hand mined no mushiness digging it
    out only hand mined. 

    • Himalayan salt is great salt. There are only 2 salt mines in the world
      that we are aware of that has all of the plethora of minerals. The
      Himalayan salt that is mined in Pakistan and the Real Salt that is
      mined here in the USA in Redmond, UT.

  17. i spoke to a woman at work that really has a lot of knowledge in nutrition,
    she recommended celtic salt brand. r these products similar? i see both
    products on amazon, is there a better place to purchase the salt products?
    also, why is this stuff so pricey? if it is unrefined, shouldn’t it b
    fairly inexpensive?

    • Hi Alan – The 2 brands of salt that Dr. Brownstein talks about in his book,
      “Salt Your Way to Health” are Celtic Salt and Real Salt (from the Redmond
      mine). Both are unrefined and very good for you. The difference is that
      Celtic Salt is harvested off of the ocean that may contain modern
      pollutants where Real Salt is mined from an underground mine that has been
      protected from modern pollution. The mining process from the sea or
      underground mine is expensive and the health values of these salts offset
      any extra expense of these products.

    • ok, that makes sense. thanks for explaining that to me. i will look to buy
      real salt. i put it in my amazon order. i live in the midwest, i will look
      for it in our local stores. thanks

  18. i live about ten miles from the address he listed for his office. i am
    looking fwd to reading more of his research. yesterday was the first day i
    began to research salt when i was refilling my salt shaker and saw the
    iodine disclaimer. 

  19. Thank you! I did….
