It appears that excessive salt consumption can thicken the semen, similar to the thickening of the blood.
Salt can induce insomnia: Salt thickens the blood, and reduces the total volume of the blood, resulting in low B/P initially. The Law of Compensation corrects the lower B/P to normal, in the course of a month or so, and subsequently makes its volume increased to the extent of giving a higher pressure, or hypertension.
The thick blood should have greater potential to carry more oxygen than normal, resulting in enhanced supply of oxygen to the brain.
If oxygen supply gets reduced for a while (hypoventi-lation), brain develops dizziness, headache, and even fainting. Total stoppage results in death.
Chronic under-supply of oxygen makes the person stupid, and that slows down digestion as well, resulting in making the person obese.
When ample or excessive oxygen is made available (hyperventilation) to the brain, the opposite of all the above can happen. The brain becomes over-active and food that has already been digested gets rapidly burnt, giving the person frequent hunger.
An over-working brain will give rise to insomnia. This condition, at its extreme, will make the brain work non-stop even if the person under-goes forced sleep with the use of sedatives or sleeping tablets.
As a result of the above, the brain will try to help by inducing frequent urination so that the excessive salt can get removed out of the body through such urinations.
Thus, the person who consumes excessive salt, will be urinating numerous times through the night while trying to sleep. He will also develop severe thirst for replacement of the body’s lost liquid.
A drastic reduction in salt consumption can help in the restoration of good sleep as well as to avoid frequent nocturnal urination.
New born babies do not consume any salt at all, other than what is present in mother’s milk. Therefore, they can sleep extensively, even for 23 hours a day. As they grow up, and as they start consuming more and more salt, their sleep duration gets reduced.
All the obese people consume very little salt. Therefore, they too develop a capacity to sleep well for prolonged hours.
As described above, reduced salt keeps the blood thin, and that supplies reduced oxygen to the brain, which in turn makes the obese people relatively stupid, lazy and lethargic. The obese, normally, never wake up while asleep to urinate.
On the other hand, if salt consumption is overly reduced, resulting in its inadequacy or deficiency, then, palpitation (i.e., rapid heart beat) will occur, and this will increase body metabolism, and thereby induce insomnia.
Therefore, consumption of normal amounts of salts is a must for grown-up people. Reduction in salt consumption can be maintained at an optimum by monitoring the rate of heart beat (i.e., the pulse).
