Believe it or not, salt is such a powerful and important part of our everyday lives that it one point in human history it was better than gold – one of the most valuable and important currencies of ancient civilizations.
In fact, Romans used to pay many of their citizen soldiers with blocks and blocks of salt after they had successfully completed a campaign (which could last years, if not a full decade) – and almost always universally accepted and appreciated.
And while you would probably have more than a little bit of a difficult time trying to buy a new car with a down payment of sodium or table salt, the truth of the matter is salt is at least as important today as it was back then – if not more so.
Salt plays a vital role in the human body
The truth of the matter is that salt plays an amazingly important role in the human body, one that might surprise you.
Not only is this a vital mineral used to flavor our foods (or rather bring out the intense flavors that lie just below the surface of almost all the foods we cook on a regular basis), but it also works to balance all of the electrolytes throughout the human body – allowing electricity to efficiently flow from our brains through our central nervous system and down to the “trigger receptors”.
Without the right amount of salt in the human body (or even with too much salt in the human body), things can begin to fly off the rails, so to speak. You’re going to need to make sure that you are getting just the right amount of salt in your body on a day to day basis – something that becomes rather difficult if you feel or fear that you may have a salt allergy.
Salt allergies exist, and are becoming more and more prevalent in our modern world
Thanks to all of the amazing medical technologies and tools we have access to in our modern world, as well as literally decades and decades of science and research to fall back on, modern medicine and science has discovered that more and more people are living with salt allergies today and then ever thought possible before.
Salt allergies can absolutely wreak havoc all across the human body, and it is mission critical that you make sure you are properly diagnosed with this issue before undergoing any treatment solution – especially the natural solutions described below.

• Breaking out in hives, itchy skin, or dealing with very red rashes all across your body
• An immediate swelling in your lips, swelling in your throat, swelling in your face, or swelling in your tongue that has no known cause – and frequently dissipates just as quickly as it begins
• Tingling sensations on your face, mouth, or tongue that cannot be readily explained
• Feelings of nausea or vomiting and diarrhea that cannot be readily explained
• Pain throughout your abdomen, but specifically in the lower regions of your abdomen
• A sensation of dizziness or even fainting – as well as shortness of breath – four no real discernible reason
