Something I forgot to mention in my earlier post about relying more on diet and less on drugs to address high blood pressure and diabetes, which are related, is to avoid processed table salt and go with sea salt or Himalayan salt. Processed salts have a lot of garbage in them and most of the things you need are gone. Despite what you have been told over and over, salt is not bad for you. Eliminating it from your diet is a big mistake. Eating foods with potassium will help your body's natural processes control your body's sodium levels. Avoiding all salt screws up those processes.
