Keep It Simple, (Guest Post by Aster T)

Hello Grafted in Readers,

Today is Thursday, June 2, 2016, in my corner of blog-land.

Most of us are more willing to make life changes if they are simple, don't radically change our day to day routines, and can become routine over time. Our guest poster, Aster T, offers some suggestions for improving personal health by improving nutrition through the following means. I am excited to have her share her expertise with us! Please leave a comment and help her feel welcomed! Here's Aster T all the way from the UK.
Shalom all, happy to be here; a short intro of myself- 
I have been interested in Health issues as far back as I can remember for the reason that I love good food and enjoy cooking since young.
To start, we need to build on a sound foundation. spiritual as well as natural.
To cook a tasty meal, we must have the right seasonings....
Never use refined table salt. Go for Himalayan Pink Salt, available at Health shops, and online trustworthy sites.
Himalayan Pink salt contains the full spectrum of 84 minerals and trace elements including Iodine, often found lacking in our diets. Iodine is the No.1 most preventable cause of Mental Retardation.
Himalayan Pink Salt is understood to work throughout the body at cellular level. It is also believed to enhance the effectiveness of other antioxidants. In addition to sodium, Himalayan salt is relatively high in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and chloride.
Many healthy fats, in fact, actually promote healthy weight maintenance and a well-functioning cardiovascular and nervous system, among many other benefits.
Never use Vegetable, peanut, canola oils, which are all damaging to health. 
Virgin Cold pressed Olive oils are meant for salads, not for cooking at high temperatures. I recommend -
Coconut oil. Perhaps the most misunderstood -- and also one of the healthiest -- oils you can consume, coconut oil is an amazingly-versatile, nutrient-dense superfood that is the richest known source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which aid in the proper digestion and assimilation of fats, as well as boost energy levels. Coconut oil is also rich in healthy saturated fats and antioxidants, and has been found to promote brain health, boost immunity, and strengthen thyroid function.
Since it has a high smoke point and is incredibly shelf stable, coconut oil is great for both cooking and eating raw. Many people regularly eat unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil by the spoonful, as it is a powerful antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral food that is rich in disease-fighting lauric acid. Coconut is also a powerful energy booster, as it quickly penetrates cells and provides rapid nourishment. 
Sesame oil-  has been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. Sesame oil is also rich in iron, calcium, and magnesium, the latter of which is known for its incredible calming effect.
Also rich in polyunsaturated fats, sesame oil helps contribute to proper fat absorption; cognitive acuity; healthy skin; a lowered risk of heart disease; and strong teeth and bones. Sesame oil also helps fight diabetes, reduce high blood pressure, prevent gingivitis and dental plaque, protect against kidney damage, and fight depression. 
Use filtered water, for cooking.
Go for Organics! Enjoy living!
