15 Tips to Eliminate Salt by Frederic Patenaude

Today, I want to share with you some tips on how to achieve a “no-salt diet.”

But first, let’s clarify a few points about salt.

1) Salt is not an essential nutrient. Contrary to common belief, salt is not a necessary nutrient. Two components of salt are essential to health: sodium and chloride. Both are found in natural foods in the amounts that we need.

2) We don’t need more sodium than what’s in natural foods. Sodium requirements are so low compared to the average intake that even the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) could not even establish a minimum requirement. US guidelines for RDAs (Required Daily Amounts) states that “the minimum average requirement for adults … [is]… 115 mg of Sodium…per day. In consideration of the wide variation of patterns of physical activity and climate exposure, a safe minimum intake might be set at 500 mg/day.”

3) Sea salt is NOT any better. It is still mostly composed of sodium chloride and using it in any amount will cause an electrolyte imbalance in most people, damaging your health over time. The trace minerals found in tiny amounts in sea salt are better obtained from natural foods.

4) All the tribes who lived on a no-salt diet were found to be in much better health with no hypertension with aging. Some of them ate a diet high in meat, smoked or drank alcohol. On the other hand, tribes who also lived a similar lifestyle but used salt had a high incidence of hypertension.

5) Human beings evolved on a low-sodium diet. Therefore our kidneys are adapted to conserve sodium. Salt is NOT paleo! Most humans never had any access to salt up to relatively recently in history.

6) Exceptions to the rule don’t change the rule. The fact that some people might need to add salt to their diet due to rare health problems or the use of salt exceptional athletic circumstances does not invalidate the general point that our health would be better if the vast majority of people consumed less much salt.

7) 99.4% of the population consumes more than the 1500 mg. limit of sodium set by the American Heart Association. So the argument that “many people run into health problems by not consuming enough salt” does not hold water.

8) Optimal blood pressure is under 115/75. Any improvement you can make in your blood pressure numbers will vastly improve your health outcomes!

9) Even if you consume salt and have an optimal blood pressure of under 115/75, it does not mean that you should keep consuming salt. 95-99% of people develop essential hypertension if they eat salt, as long as they live long enough. Some people develop it at 35, while others at 85.

10) Salt consumption destroys your health in other ways. It causes kidney damage, increases your odds of stomach cancer and kidney stones as well as auto-immune disease. It may cause acne and aggravate insomnia. It creates oxidative stress.

Dr. James Kenney, Ph.D., writes in “Diet, Hypertension and Salt Toxicity”:

There is growing evidence that HTN is merely a symptom of an underlying nutritional imbalance caused largely by an excessive intake of salt. Salt intake was found to correlate more closely with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), cerebrovascular disease, microproteinuria (an early sign of kidney disease), and reduced arterial compliance than BP. A recent review found that “there is clinical and experimental evidence… that salt intake directly affects hypertensive renal disease, cerebrovascular disease, and compliance of the large arteries. The close and partially independent correlation between salt intake and hypertensive target organ disease suggests dietary sodium to be a direct perpetrator of cardiovascular disease.”85 Simply put HTN is just one of many symptoms that can result from the damaging effects of chronic salt toxicity.

Are you ready to take the no-salt pledge? Here’s how to do it:

1- Stop eating foods that don’t taste good without salt

One of the best things about eliminating salt from your diet is that it will steer you in the right direction of eating. Fruits taste great without salt. It’s also not difficult to make a tasty salad without the stuff. Tubers (potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.), as well as vegetables in general, are great without it. Unprocessed grains and beans can be pretty good given the right mixture. Nuts, seeds, and avocado: excellent.

As for pasta and bread: unpalatable even with the right combo of spices. But it’s so processed anyway so why it eat?

Processed foods: they all have to go because they are loaded with salt. The same applies to restaurant foods. At the same time, you’ll eliminate 75% of the foods that make people sick.

2- Read ALL the labels

It’s surprising where you can find salt and high sodium content. My mom was fooled by “Bragg’s Liquid Aminos” because there’s “no salt added.” It packs in as much sodium as soy sauce! Salt is often sometimes added to nut butter and other healthy foods even by organic companies. It’s also almost impossible to find a protein powder without added salt. Those in the market for a good protein powder should take a look at “Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein.” It’s one of the rare brands without added salt.

3- Be patient

Depending on a few factors, it takes a few weeks to neuro-adapt to a low-sodium diet. When this happens, you’ll sometimes pinch yourself thinking that you’ve added salt to your food, because you finally start tasting the natural sodium in it!

4- Use lime or lemon juice on everything

The receptors for “salty” and “sour” on the tongue are very close to each other. One trick to make the food taste “salty” is to add some fresh lime or lemon juice to almost everything you eat!

5- Learn to use whole spices

So you’re going to leave salt behind. How do you pack more flavor into your dishes? The solution is to use high-quality, whole spice mixes! You need to grind spices before each use for maximum flavor. Do not buy those pre-made, ground spice mix. They only taste good with salt!

I have discovered spices from a Canadian company that is unparalleled. Plus, the prices are good. They have a ton of recipes on their website. Their website is: http://spicetrekkers.com

6- Use fresh herbs

Always have one or two bunches of fresh herbs on hand. I particularly like Italian parsley (leaves are flat), cilantro and basil.

7- Know about this “salty” seasoning

Potassium chloride is bitter and unappealing. But you can get a salt-replacement to get over the hump of neuro-adaptation called “Table Tasty Salt Substitute.”

It’s the “saltiest” salt replacement I have found. Some might object to the yeast extract. However it’s a good company, I haven’t seen any negative use from occasional use, and it’s a great tool in the box to have to get over the salt habit.

8- Add mangoes!

When you remove salt, you sometimes have to add a bit of sweetness. Otherwise, some dishes, such as salads, can taste too bland. Diced mangoes will be your friend! You can almost add them to everything, but I particularly like them in salads.

9- Make avocados your friend

Avocados pack a lot of flavor and nutrition. You can add diced or mashed avocado to many dishes to instantly transform them from “okay” to “wow!”

10- Enjoy balsamic vinegar

Go and get some gourmet balsamic vinegar. A few drops do change everything! I don’t particularly like the fruit vinegars that are recommended by some health experts. Balsamic is the time-tested classic.

11- Use nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast can also add a lot of flavor to some dishes.

12- Get your favorite condiments without salt

It’s amazing what you can find on Amazon. I could not find mustard or hot sauce without salt anywhere until I looked on Amazon. Here are a few good finds:

Organic Mustard.
Tomato Sauce.
No-BPA beans (You can find this brand in most health food stores, but if you live in the US, it’s a good buy on Amazon)
Hot Sauce.

13- Do many of the above, at the same time

Food will taste great if you combine my tips all at the same time. Make a salad and add mangoes, diced avocado, balsamic vinegar, fresh herbs, nutritional yeast and a bit of spice and I guarantee that you won’t miss the salt! The same goes for other dishes. Cook a lentil stews, add in freshly ground spices such as the Berberé Mix from “Épices de Cru,” lime juice and chopped cilantro and you’ll call me to say it was the best meal you’ve had in a while!

14- Go all the way

“Reducing salt” does not work. Health agencies have been encouraging the public to “reduce salt” for decades, and it has not worked. When you eat salt, you crave salt. It’s as simple as that. When you get rid of it entirely, your taste buds adapt, and you reap the rewards.

Any drop in blood pressure results in improved health until you’re down to at 115/75 and perhaps even 110/70. This is well documented scientifically.

Author Andrew Perlot, who has an excellent YouTube channel, did an experiment where he added only one-quarter of a teaspoon of salt to his diet for a year. He documented the results in his video.

What’s interesting about Andrew’s experiment is that he was still below the lowest recommended intake of 1500 mg. of sodium a day. Like I’ve said before, only 0.6% of the population eats that little sodium.

Just by adding about 500 mg. of extra sodium a day, he significantly raised his blood pressure.

15- Be Patient (Again)

One problem with a lot of the research done on sodium restriction is that they focus only on the short-term effect of going from a high-salt intake to a moderate salt intake.

According to Dr. James Kenney, Ph. D., author of a fascinating paper or salt toxicity:

Unfortunately, the long-term effects of a low-salt diet have received little attention. After an initial drop in BP, which can be fairly large in some individuals, the decline in BP often continues for many months or years, provided the salt restriction is maintained. For example, one group of researchers found that BP was still trending downwards after two years on a diet with about 70 mEq (1600 mg of sodium).84 Given that the BP raising effects of excessive dietary salt take many years to develop it is surprising that most clinicians expect to see the full impact of a low-salt diet within just a few weeks. In my clinical experience, it may take as long as 5 to 7 years to see the full BP lowering impact of a low-salt diet.

Conclusion

I hope I have convinced some of you to try ditching the salt habit. There’s more to cover about this topic, but I think I have given you a few good ideas to get rid of the salt in your diet starting today.

The Top 10 Myths About Eating Fruit by Frederic Patenaude

The Top 10 Myths About Eating Fruit by Frederic Patenaude

Fruit is a symbol of “health food,” yet it’s also the one natural food that’s vilified the most by many trends of the natural health and raw food movements.

This unscientific trend has also been picked up by the largest proportion of the raw food theorists, many of which go to the extreme of saying that eating lots of sweet fruit is unnatural and unhealthy.

Even the Hippocrates Health Institute has launched a fear campaign on eating fruit, claiming that fruit eating is responsible for the common health problems experienced by the majority of raw foodists.

So let’s take a look at the most common myths about fruit, and bust them once and for all.

The Fear of Fruit by Frederic Patenaude

“Don’t eat too much fruit!”

“Fruit is fine as long as you stick to apples, grapefruit, berries and other fruits with a lower sugar content.”

This is what we hear from many health authors these days.

What’s up with the fear of fruit? Is it true that we should be careful with the sugar in fruit?

Should We Avoid Hybridized Fruits and Vegetables by Frederic Patenaude

Should We Avoid Hybridized Fruits and Vegetables by Frederic Patenaude

I recently received the following question from a reader:

“How do I buy fruits and vegetables that are closest to the way our ancestors ate them? I don’t want to be eating these hybridized apples and giant unnatural strawberries, etc. How do I go back to finding original types of fruits before they were altered? How and what should I be shopping for? I trust my instincts, but my instincts tend to push me away from the extremely sweet, weird-tasting new fruits. What should I shop for and where should I be buying? I live in Illinois.”

This is an interesting question, and my answer may surprise you.

First, my follow-up question is: “Why would you want to eat foods close to the foods your ancestors ate?”

It’s probably because you’ve been told that those foods are somehow better, healthier, and more nutritious. They contained less sugar, more fiber, and perhaps more antiox idants.

You probably also have bought the common myth that hybridized foods are bad for health.

But let’s put things into perspective.

Our ancestors ate foods that they could find in their environment, and over the course of thousands upon thousands of generations, they altered these plants by selecting the ones that they preferred.

Our ancestors always preferred foods containing more calories (natural sugar), a manageable amount of fiber, and fewer natural toxins.
The plants we cultivate today are the most nutritious and digestible foods that humans ever had access to.

Trying to go back to wild foods entirely would not only be a mistake, but it would also be counterproductive. While it’s true that some wild plants are nutritious and offer some health benefits, designing a diet around wild plants would be extremely ill advised.

If you tried to live on wild fruits, such as the ones that chimpanzees live on, you would be come sick and eventually die. That’s because humans are not adapted to live on wild plants. We are genetically adapted to foods with more available calories, fewer tannins and fewer natural toxins.

Richard Wrangham, from Harvard University, writes:

“Evolutionary adaptation to cooking might likewise explain why humans seem less prepared to tolerate toxins than do other apes. In my experience of sampling many wild foods eaten by primates, items eaten by chimpanzees in the wild taste better than foods eaten by monkeys. Even so, some of the fruits, seeds, and leaves that chimpanzees select taste so foul that I can barely swallow them. The tastes are strong and rich, excellent indicators of the presence of non-nutritional compounds, many of which are likely to be toxic to humans—but presumably much less so to chimpanzees. Consider the plum-size fruit of Warburgia Ugandensis, a tree famous for its medicinal bark. Warburgia fruits contain a spicy compound reminiscent of a mustard oil. The hot taste renders even a single fruit impossibly unpleasant for humans to ingest. But chimpanzees can eat a pile of these fruits and then look eagerly for more. Many other fruits in the chimpanzee diet are almost equally unpleasant to the human palate. Astringency, the drying sensation produced by tannins and a few other compounds, is common in fruits eaten by chimpanzees.

(…) The shifts in food preference between chimpanzees and humans suggest that our species has a reduced physiological tolerance for foods high in toxins or tannins. Since cooking predictably destroys many toxins, we may have evolved a relatively sensitive palate.”

I’ve spent a lot of time in Costa Rica, and I’ve had the chance to look at what monkeys eat in the wild. The monkeys in Costa Rica are not like great apes, but fruit constitutes most of the diet of some of these monkeys.

What always puzzled me is that whenever I saw the fruits these monkeys ate, and by accident some of it was dropped on the ground, it always looked far from edible to me.

Whenever I tried to eat some of these fruits, I found them to be repulsive. I could not even swallow one bite.

Humans have always had very good reasons to domesticate plants. The wild versions of most domesticated plants are either inedible, low in caloric value, or toxic.

If you attempted to live on wild plants, you would not thrive for very long. Almost every advocate of a “wild diet” still gets most of their calories from domesticated plants (and often animal products).

In the case of strawberries that are the size of small children, it’s true that sometimes the tastes of the public have pushed industry to create even bigger and tastier versions of common fruits. You may prefer the taste of smaller or even wild strawberries, but there’s absolutely nothing indicating that there’s anything wrong, health-wise, with big strawberries, as long as they haven’t been sprayed with a lot of pesticides.

Similarly, there’s absolutely no reason to avoid modern varieties of apples.

The problem with industry is not hybridization. The problem is that the marketplace has forgotten about older varieties of some plants, like apples or tomatoes.

There are literally hundreds of varieties of apples and tomatoes, but only a few are available commercially. However, every single one of those varieties is still domesticated and “hybridized.” They’re just less desirable for commercial reasons, either because the fruits don’t keep as long, or some other rationale like this.

Lately, there’s been a resurgence of interest for Heirloom tomatoes. Those varieties of tomatoes taste a lot better, although sometimes look “weird.” They’re just older varieties of tomatoes but are certainly not anything like the wild versions. They are still domesticated plants.
Seeking to eat what our ancestors ate isn’t practical or beneficial.

First of all, most of the plants they ate no longer exist. Over the course of evolution, they’ve selected the plants that best suited their needs. The initial wild varieties of those plants may still exist somewhere in nature, but you’d be shocked at how inedible those are!

A few exceptions come to mind: wild berries are excellent. But that may be because people, throughout history, have always picked wild berries, and “selected” the best-tasting varieties.

If you want to be healthy and stay healthy, eat foods available at health food stores, farmers markets, and supermarkets. There’s nothing wrong with the organic produce sold in those places. If you have a garden, you could try planting Heirloom varieties of some vegetables, but don’t fool yourself into thinking that those foods have anything to do with what our ancestors ate, tens of thousands of years ago.

Why Raw Foodists Have Bad Teeth by Frederic Patenaude

Check out all the great discount offers below on health products from Frederic Patenaude. Please do not delay, as the prices are subject to change at any time.

Why Raw Foodists Have Bad Teeth by Frederic Patenaude
For years, I’ve been warning raw vegans, Paleo enthusiasts, juicing fans, fruit eaters, smoothie addicts and vegans to take care of their teeth.

What I have observed is:
* I high incidence of dental decay among raw foodists, 1-2 years after they switch to the diet

* A high incidence of gum recession and enamel erosion among raw foodists (this does not mean 100% raw. Anyone who eats a lot of fruit or drinks fresh juices or smoothies should care.)

Dramatic dental problems in people who stick religiously to certain diet principles without questioning them.
In my early days, I’ve had my share of dental problems myself as a direct result of following the raw diet incorrectly. I have also met at least several hundred people who have gone through similar issues.

I’ve been talking about this for a number of years now, and I’m glad that people are finally listening!

This is truly the “weak link” of the raw diet, and it applies to anyone eating a healthy diet!

There are a lot of positive aspects to eating more raw foods.

But… a person can experience many wonderful benefits while changing their diet, and watch with horror as their dental health goes downhill.

And it’s not just raw vegans… vegetarians also must watch out. In fact, anyone who eats healthier!
We know that raw foods contain more acidity. But healthy eaters also consume more cooked vegetables, and acidity can be increased in those vegetables when you roast them.

Peta Bee writes in the Daily Mail:

“Dentists at the University of Dundee found that different cooking methods could increase the acidity of vegetarian dishes, such as roasted vegetables. Exposure to high temperatures produced chemical changes that made the acid more concentrated, and more damaging to teeth. In particular, the acidity level of zucchini, peppers, onions and eggplants increased when roasted.”

So what’s going on here?

The Two Culprits

At this point, if you have the least interest in eating a healthier diet, you should start reading very, very closely.

Dental decay is not caused by eating the wrong diet.

Dental decay is the result of the proliferation of certain types of bacteria in the oral environment. The bacteria eliminate acid waste that eat into your teeth and cause decay.

It’s all about the terrain!

If your oral terrain (the environment) is healthy, you could eat Cheetos and drink Coke all day, and you wouldn’t even get cavities.

When people change their diet, they become a dental health time-bomb. Their bacteria count is a little too high, but not high enough to cause major problems.

Suddenly, they start eating more often, because they eat foods that are not as dense in calories. They drink juices. They drink smoothies. They eat a lot of fruit.

This acid and sugar create a giant feast for the bacteria which feed on them.

The real culprits are the bacteria. But the terrain is determined by:

– Acidity
– Sugar

It’s not all about the food you eat! If you can control the level of acidity in your mouth, you can eat foods that contain acids and sugar, and you’ll be fine.

But, if your oral terrain is not under control, you’ll never be able to eradicate dental problems for life.

You want your bacteria count to be as low as possible.

You want to avoid bacteria forming into colonies and creating their little civilization in your mouth!

If your oral environment is clean… and ALKALINE… it doesn’t matter if you eat dates or raisins all day.

The Only Solution

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just controlling your diet does not address the root of the problem.

You can create a simple, daily dental hygiene routine that will prevent 95% of problems.

And then, you can do simple things with your diet to control the remaining 5%, like avoiding snacking and being careful with the amount of acid foods you consume.

To find out more, get the eBook “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?Clk=4900800

In it, is explained:

– Exactly what routine to follow to heal your teeth, if you’ve experienced any kind of dental problems.

– How to avoid the common dental problems associated with vegetarian, vegans, and raw food diets.

– Nutritional changes you can make that can save your teeth.

It’s the best resource found to avoid and reverse most dental issues.

Winter is Coming – How to Beat the Winter Blues by Frederic Patenaude

Looking for some great holiday gifts for yourself, your family, friends and co-workers to get and stay healthy, as that is most important. Then check out the deals on products from Frederic and Renegade Health below. The offers/discounts can change at any time, so don’t delay!

Winter is Coming – How to Beat the Winter Blues by Frederic Patenaude

Don’t be caught off-guard this time. Have you started the most obvious cure for the winter blues there is?

Let this email be a warning!

At this time of the year in Northern latitudes, the days are shortening by three minutes a day. But even in Los Angeles the days are shortening by two minutes a day.

When November comes, many people are deep into the “winter blues” without realizing what happened. I’m talking about seasonal affective disorder or SAD.

By December, things get pretty dire rather quickly, with sunset before 5 p.m and days getting even shorter every day.

A slight bout of winter blues means that you’ll feel less energetic, have trouble getting up or staying asleep, and feel not as zesty as usual. Other warning signs include getting up too early and having trouble falling asleep.

If you don’t do anything about it, these symptoms can turn into a full-blown depression.

So let me share with you what to do about it. Because starting the cure early is key!

1) Light Therapy
This simple treatment is your first line of defense. It works! But the key thing is starting early (in September, but now will work if you haven’t started yet), and to do it every day for 30-60 minutes.

I’ve been blasting my eyes with light in the morning since early September, and I will keep this up every single day of the winter, even while traveling. I already feel the benefits compared to years when I didn’t do it.

If you think you tend to have any symptoms of SAD, even slight ones, I highly recommend that you give this a try. But make sure that you:

1) Don’t skimp on quality. Get a good light. After researching this extensively, I decided to purchase the Day-Light Sky Lamp. I’ve been very happy with this lamp, and I also use it on the low setting as a regular source of light.

2) Also get a travel lamp. You don’t want to stop the light therapy when you’re traveling — even if you’re going South. Light therapy only works if you’re doing it every day, and you never know how much sunshine you’re going to get on vacation. Plus, the travel light is very useful for overcoming jet lag by resetting your inner clock to the new time zone. I use it all the time. I recommend this lamp: Brand name- Sphere

The easiest way to use Light Therapy is to do it first thing in the morning while having breakfast, reading your emails, reading the newspaper, having tea or coffee or a smoothie. You have to be fairly close to the light without looking at it.

Start now!

Two Other Ways to Beat the Winter Blues
Here are two more ways to help you beat the winter blues. But you’ll never hear them discussed in the media. These methods work even faster, and the results are more permanent! Note: you must do this in addition to light therapy.

1) Fasting

Fasting (on water) stimulates the production of natural endorphins. At the end of a day of fasting, you naturally feel more alive, energetic, and more importantly: mood significantly improves.

In the winter, I fast one day per week for 20 to 36 hours.

Also, I think our bodies are naturally designed to get fewer calories in the winter, because this has been a time of semi-starvation, in our long evolution as a species.

During the winter, our bodies go through several physiological changes. That is why many people gain weight and feel less energetic.From an evolutionary perspective, it makes sense because it helped us in the past conserve energy.

The problem in our modern world is that “winter never comes.” We experience the cold, but not the starvation. So we pack on the pounds and feel depressed.

One way to overcome this is to fast one day per week. That way, your body will think that “winter is coming” and will react appropriately. Your mood will significantly improve, and you’ll avoid the fat gain that most experience during the winter.

(Note that some people shouldn’t fast, due to health concerns. In this case, you can try a day of eating fruit, smoothies, or juices).

2) A High-Raw Diet

A high-raw diet is a great tool to improve mood and energy levels. Most people think of doing this during the summer, but the winter is a great time to eat more raw!

Again, this refers to the “winter hypothesis.”

A raw diet is naturally less caloric dense but contains more nutrients.

Your body will react by burning fat and producing endorphins — feel-good hormones.

You don’t even have to eat 100% raw to experience the results. Just 50 to 80% raw will do it!

When you combine light therapy, fasting and a raw diet, you have a powerful combo to ward off winter blues or even depression.
