Salt is a lot like love…….WAIT!…..Don’t leave yet. You will soon learn the value of salt and the importance of using the correct type. The conclusion is that SALT is GOOD….very good….just hang in there and learn why.
You see, not all salt/love is created equal. Further, their historical importance is illustrated by the fact that they have both been involved life altering events, like the waging of wars. People have even accepted both as a wage payment for various reasons. But what would make salt so important that blood was shed over it? Can’t you just buy it in the store for a buck? Well, yes and no. Salt is good, essential actually, but it is the TYPE of salt that makes ALL the difference.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
There is much conflicting information about salt..
- Salt is good for you
- Salt is bad for you
- Low Salt diet is good
- Low Salt diet is detrimental
The advocates of each of those statements will roll out their ‘facts’ as to why they know what’s right for you. Hopefully, by the end of this writing you will see that they are ALL correct.
Really, these misconceptions can be blamed on our language, especially the English language. It seems we are living examples of George Orwell’s 1984. In the book, with each passing generation, the vocabulary was reduced more and more. The result was an easily controlled, dumbed down population.
This is where we can see the salt / love correlation. Love is one word that means drastically different things depending on how its used.
In a restaurant – “I love this pizza”
At Thanksgiving dinner – “I love you grandma”
The womanizer in bed – “I love you, uh, what’s your name again?”
In front of your boss – “I love this job”
In front of your co-workers – “I’d love to show boss-man a thing or two”
You see, your love for grandma is totally different from your love of whats-her-face. And the love of knocking your boss down a few pegs isn’t the same love you have for pizza. Come to think of it, maybe it’s not really the language that’s at fault, but our own laziness in how we use it. Words like passion, intimacy, fulfillment, care, pleasure, enjoy can easily be used to supplement ‘love,’ which naturally (in true Procinctu fashion) brings us to salt.
Like love, salt also has drastically different meanings.
Salt can be that table salt which is iodized.
Salt can also be sea salt which may or may not be processed differently than the iodized form.
There is Celtic sea salt in an unrefined state directly from the ocean.
Or upon pissing off someone, you could say “He’s gonna be salt.”
Here, you can see why salt advocates, for and against, offer such drastic views on salt. Different salts do different things. The REFINED iodized table salt is nothing like the UNREFINED naturally sourced Celtic salt from the sea. And a shitty mislabeled refined sea salt is not the same thing as someones feelings.
As far as food is concerned, only one salt is superior. Unrefined salt is good and the most beneficial. You’ll know it by it’s coarseness, clumpiness, and color (not bleached white). Celtic Sea Salt is in this category. Though it’s equally attractive cousin, Himalayan Salt also ranks superior. In fact, as more and more contaminants reach our waters, Himalayan Salt will soon hold the lone spot as the superior salt if it hasn’t already. The reason for this is the Himalayan salt’s lack of exposure to impurities. However, for the purposes of this post, Celtic and Himalayan salt will have equal footing vs the refined salts. So let’s break down each salt so you know WHY Celtic and Himalayan Salt trumps all and why, ultimately, salt is good. Read the rest of this entry »

If you get all of your information from mainstream sources, you are NOT getting all of the information. Procinctu will share with you the Top 12 Information Resources for 2012.
This may be the most important article you ever read. In it you will find many alternative resources pertinent to your survival and hopefully your prosperity.
Did you know that 6 corporations control the media? In the 1980’s that number was closer to 50, but through mergers and buyouts, that number has dwindled to 6! Most Americans are unaware of this and are easily conditioned because they are only getting the ‘approved’ news.

The message was “Bread is Dead!” It was heard during daily mass at St. Paul Catholic Church in Colorado Springs, CO. The homily was a simple one especially since most of the congregation consisted of students from the adjacent Catholic School. Though sometimes, it is the simplest messages that are easiest to learn from.
The priest began by explaining the murderous steps bread goes through to be created…they pulverize the wheat… they pump it with foreign ingredients…they knead it as dough … then they punch it down and divide it…and finally, just for good measure, they bake it at hundreds of degrees. Surely by the time it is considered bread, it is truly dead… beaten to a pulp. Of course, the priest who exclaimed the “Bread is Dead!” wasn’t merely speaking of food. He was alluding to his point that the true bread of everlasting life is in Jesus Christ through the Eucharist. However, the way in which he explained, its a lesson that can also be applied to your everyday meal consumption as well.
