In addition to lifting and birghtening mood, it also enhances clarity and focus of the mind. The high amounts of PEA in raw cacao are diminished in the heat processing to make chocolate, and lowered even more if milk products are added to make milk chocolate.
Decreased levels of PEA have been found in some depressed patients. Researchers ar Rush University and the Center for Creative Development inChicago recently conducted a study demonstrating PEA's anti-depressant effects. "It is proposed that PEA deficit may be the cause of a common form of depressive illness. PEA produced a sustained relief of depression in a significant number of patients, including some who were unrepsonsive to standard treatments."

Our bodies are mainly comprised of water and salt, in a similar proportion to that of ancient and deep seas. Therefore, salt contains the most important minerals we need to consume. The composition of the salt we choose is vital. Only natural salt without any additives is the stuff you should be consuming. Other salts with inorganic added iodine and anti-caking agents are only going to stress out your body and cause disease.
Iodine found in table salt builds up in the body, and too much seems to cause cancer, particularly in the thyroid gland.
Salt and water are the essence of life, we need both in their pure and natural state in order to enjoy their benefits, allowing them to restore our body’s homeostasis (balance), and healing powers.
Salt bath treatments are incredible ways to help reduce many diseases, even cancer. Diseases are caused by chaos and stress within the body, however the salt and pure water help to bring back your natural balance.
