What is bad for hypertension is iodized salt, which is a fake salt. It is made up of only 3 synthetic ingredients, sodium, chloride and iodine.
It does not melt in water (glistens like diamonds), does NOT melt in the body, does not melt in the kidneys, responsible for kidney stones, and also raises blood pressure. However, this salt is recommended by the doctors and the policy makers who claim that it is clean and pure as reflected by its whiteness and glistening like diamonds.
The true salt, which comes from the sea and dried under the sun and commonly called sea salt, has 72 natural minerals including natural sodium, chloride, and iodine. It melts in water, melts in your body, melts in the kidneys, does not tend to create kidney stones, and best of all, it brings down blood pressure and stops/prevents muscle cramps, numbness, tingling. If you get muscle cramps in the lower legs at night, just take a half teaspoon of sea salt and a glass of water, and the cramps with its horrific pain will be gone in just 5 minutes.
Why salt? Because without salt the body cannot retain water no matter how much water is consumed everyday. You will feel dehydrated because you will just keep urinating and sweating the water out.
Blood pressure in simplest terms can be understood as a response by the body, to fight the resistance and to maintain blood supply to all parts of the body.
When BP is rising high and is not responding to medication, with little or no headache and there is stiffness of shoulder and neck muscles, to normalize the BP and stiffness and pain try giving 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and 3 glasses of water.
If there is crushing pain in the head, it means blood supply to the head is lacking, and you will need to give green chilli to normalize it and shoot blood to the head and remove the extreme pain.
This home remedy however is not substitute to your physician's advice.
