If you ever get stuck doing the grocery shopping you have probably noticed some items that claim to use sea salt. These are usually salty foods like pretzels or potato chips, and their packaging claims that sea salt is a natural and healthier alternative to regular salt. While sea salt is a natural alternative to table salt, it has the same nutritional value as the salt you find on McDonalds French fries.
However, it is not for nutritional purposes that some people maintain a regular sea salt diet. Those who consume sea salt do so as part of a sea salt cleanse, because sea salt has been proven effective as a colon cleanse. According to the website of infamous holistic health guru Dr. Andrew Weill, one should add between one and two teaspoons of seal salt to one to two gallons of water and drink up.
