The chemical and mineral compositions of our blood, and saline fluids have an amazing similarity to seawater. As an embryo in our mother's womb, we are encased in a sack, filled with this saline fluid.
Seawater contains 84 mineral elements. These same 84 mineral elements are found in our bodies. Modern science has determined that 24 of these elements are essential for life, although many believe that a proper balance of all 84 elements in our bodies is necessary for good health. Whenever a dietary deficiency of any of these elements occurs, the cells in our bodies lose ions. A loss of ions in our cells causes imbalances, a breakdown of the cell regeneration and growth process, and loss of the cells themselves, which leads to nervous disorders, brain damage, muscle damage or illness. Therefore, it is vital to your health to have the proper mineral balance in the saline and ion composition of your blood and these compositions must be maintained within very precise limits. Many illnesses and poor health conditions have been traced to a deficiency of minerals, ironically the minerals that are found in sea salt.
