Fabulous! Best medical book I’ve read in awhile.
This book casts serious doubt on the prevailing dogma that salt is the enemy, particularly in hypertension and cardiovascular disease. The studies (as in several other areas of prevailing medical dogma) have long been conflicting at best, and pointing in the exact opposite direction at worst. The author did address some of his theories as to why that might be, but I paid less attention to this part than I did to his actual arguments. As a naturopathic doctor, this has already affected advice I’ve given to patients, and has given me new treatment insight in a few resistant cases. It’s also changed my own practice prior to long workouts and sauna sessions–pretty sure I’ve been low in salt for awhile, myself!
After listening to the audiobook, I also purchased the kindle version just so I could gain access to his bibliography. Highly recommended.
