water retention/salt intake?

Post  Dizaster on Mon Jan 02, 2017 9:46 am

Hi guys,

I want to know if salt is actually good or not, cause there are numerous websites telling salt causes water retention and here it s the opposite...?

One of the signs of adrenal weakness is craving salt.

I can not eat too much salt without it being detrimental to my body.  Here is an unusual and documented article by CS on the subject.

It's not the salt, it's the bacon that's unhealthy.
If you use salt on these foods you'll be fine. They're the best:
Fruit
Raw Vegetables - lettuce, cilantro, etc
Steamed vegetables - Cauliflower, Broccoli, Spinach, beets, peeled potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn,etc..
Green lentils - Black lentils are great too if I remember correctly. I don't like red split lentils, but they're probably okay.
Quinoa - I prefer white quinoa instead of red quinoa
Whole wheat
Frozen/fresh peas - I don't like dry split peas.
Ground flaxseeds
Dulse seaweed
Avocado
Buckwheat, mung beans - Haven't eaten both in a long time, but both are one of the best if I remember correctly.

Foods to avoid:
Brown, black, white rice- Maybe there's a good kind out there.
Black beans and other beans - Probably not so bad. I need to try them one last time. Mung beans are good.
Oats - Too sticky. Old fashioned oats actually have high volume/calories compared to other grains, which is one reason I don't like oats. They also give me slight heartburn or something.
Nuts and seeds - They're probably safe blended well.
Amaranth - Not bad, but I don't like it.
Millet - Not the worst, but I haven't liked it the times I've cooked it. It might be my fault.
Meat - putrescine, endotoxins,methionine,and bacteria.

  Actually my post above includes a link where CS documents why people had problems with salt restriction.

For me I will not even use salt or baking soda toothpaste,  they bother my mouth tissue eventually.  I think that mineralized sources are more useful than sodium,  but the question comes down to how much is too much  ?

Nice article. I have adrenal issues and my doctor prescribed me hydrocortisone but im scared to take it and want to take a less risky route like salt loading, it seems its helping some people on this forum, what do you think is it better?

I've been supplementing with Himalayan Pink Salt for a few months now.  I drink a glass in the morning paired with Emergen-C and the again 30mins before I go workout at the gym.  

Two things I know for sure:

1.  My digestion is waaaaaay better.   Before, it was always a gamble as to what my stools were going to look like.  Now they're solid and look the correct color.  These days I'm a "one wipe" kind of guy if you know what I mean.

2.  My energy levels are better and my breathing is not as shallow.  I notice it the most when I'm in the gym - especially the breathing part.

For a good portion of the time I thought it was helping me sleep through the night without interruption - but I've had somewhat of a relapse the last 2 weeks.  I also notice some scattered cystic acne (especially on the back of the head), but I also haven't been disciplined in avoiding processed carbs during that time.

My body retains water sometimes to, ate some Ramen and my face (cheeks and above eye) got puffy. It goes down during the day, but now for the last few weeks just above my eyelid gets puffy

Me too I supplement with himalayan salt, I thought it would help me but it makes me worse regarding fluid retention. Also I have hot flash all over my face, i think i will stop it and just take hc and change my diet.

I think the quality of the salt consumed makes a big difference.

I mix 2 litres of water up with 1.5 gram of sea salt and 1 gram of sodium bicarbonate (and sometimes if I haven't been eating high potassium foods - I gram of potassium bicarbonate as well).

This water mix is so delicious and becomes quite addictive after a while. I think I retain a bit more water, but nothing drastic.

I'm surprised more people don't take sodium bicarbonate (in water and always on an empty stomach, well away from food) as it seemingly has a host of benefits in the body.

A repost that I did about how to properly mineralize water for drinking.

Interesting link and video about water PH and DIY process. Details how to get proper electrolytes and properly charged water to use as an antioxidant. Electrical potential greatly effects the nervous system and regeneration ability.
