Salt: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Salt is the easy seasoning used in kitchens everywhere to hide a multitude of sins. Casually added to our meals for generations, it is unsurprisingly one of those ingredients that people often take for granted, unconsciously sprinkling a generous amount over almost everything they eat. Even without adding extra salt to the food we eat, three quarters of food sold in supermarkets today contains salt already, including most ready meals, and basics such as bread, cheese and red meat.

As an adult, six grams of salt is your recommended daily allowance. The sodium contained in this amount of salt maintains the fluid in our blood cells, a task that the body cannot perform without salt. However, medical experts have found that regularly exceeding 6g of salt in your diet can lead to:

• High blood pressure
• Heart disease
• Increased risk of dementia in later life
• Increased risk of having a stroke

How Can I Tell I’m Eating Too Much Salt?

Salt is so common that it can be difficult to reduce, and equally difficult to figure out when your body is reacting badly to it. If you’ve experienced the following lowering your salt intake may be a good idea.

• Excessive bloating after meals
• Feeling more thirsty and dehydrated than usual
• Low mood

The above symptoms can also point to diabetes, so it’s important to consult a doctor before you seek other treatment, as a simple blood test will tell you whether your diet is the cause of your symptoms or not.

How Will Hypnotherapy for Salt Reduction Help Me?

Especially if you’re a person who likes to add extra salt during cooking and serving, hypnotherapy will help you break the habit. At the moment, it may seem like a choice, a necessity to make food taste the way you like it, but often, when we reach for extra salt, it’s either in compensation for lack of other flavours, or simply because it’s on the table. Hypnotherapy makes all your decisions more rational and conscious by drawing attention to the consequences of your actions while you are in a calm, responsive state. This means that you can be truly in control of your salt reduction programme, able to make discerning choices about how you season your food.

Success Stories
Hypnosis South London
Relationships and removing limiting beliefs about money

I cannot put into words what a difference this has made to my life. I was feeling extremely anxious and the therapy that Maria has given me has helped tremendously. I found the sessions enjoyable and interesting and could see results after just the first session mainly focused on anxiety around my daughter and my ex-partner and anger towards certain people. I found all her BAGC6 tools extremely helpful and it made such a difference to my sense of wellbeing undertaking these tasks every day. I was excited to do them! After a couple of days of doing them, I felt so much calmer and happier and was feeling optimistic again and back to myself. In the first session, we did some work around how I could deal with my toddler in a more patient manner and the following day the technique Maria had showed me worked perfectly. I was really shocked at how quickly it worked. Once I dealt with this initial difficulty, I then started to work with finances and making money. Maria helped me to remove limiting beliefs about money, and again the tools that Maria gave me and the work at home around my financial situation and letting go of old patterns has really help. Also, what I love about the therapy is that the tools and recordings that Maria gave me are still there for me to use when I have a difficult time again. I have already recommended a friend to see Maria. I cannot thank you enough Maria for what you have helped me with.
