Ok so I bought some himalayan salt and have been using this instead of plain Sea Salt . This past two days my energy has plummeted, not that it was great to begin with. Its making me think that the salt is causing a detox reaction.Ive tried cutting back on the amount of salt in my drinking water but find that I urinate more when I do this and if anything experience MORE tiredness(I have adrenal fatigue). Yet the salty water tastes real good to me.
I am also in the middle of my menstrual cycle at present which I know is cleansing of itself. Am I putting too much pressure on my body at this time with the salt cleansing?
Nowhere have I found people experiencing LESS energy while drinking sole mixture. I expected greater energy levels since Im providing my body with all these valuable minerals. Can anyone shed some light? Thanks in advance :)
i would wait until the end of your cycle to get a proper reading on what is happening.
try to add the salt to soups or food instead of water for the time being, at least those will have more of a nourishing effect rather than just cleansing.
if you add enough to your foods, plain water will start to taste good again.
i doubt it is a fluoride reaction. if the salt is causing you loose stools or causing too much urination then you could possibly be encouraging some dehydration, but wait till the end of your cycle to figure it out.
my suspicion is that you will go through a period of time feeling worse and then have a significant health improvement. be sure to support all of your other organs and adrenals while this is happening.
i went through something vaguely similar with lemons. i couldn't stop drinking lemonade/ lemon juice, it just tasted too good for me to stop. it was causing some hair loss, but i kept with it and eventually the hair loss subsided and then my hair grew in much better than it had been for a very long time. sometimes the body just has its own wisdom and timetable, and usually strong cravings or tastes are a very good measure of this type of thing.
Im feeling much better now.I stopped drinking the himalayan sole and switched back to regular Sea Salt ed water and the difference is crazy!!I feel fine again.I definitely think the himalayan salt was throwing me into some kind of weird detox mode.I have read that himalayan salt has hypnotic properties,well I can certainly attest to that,all I wanted to do was sleep!!I tried having the himalayan salt with a meal as somebody suggested and I fell asleep after the meal!This stuff is weird and I also believe that it was dehydrating me,I was pretty constipated.I am going to stick to regular Sea Salt ed water which gives my body such a boost and actually hydrates me and keeps my bowels regular.Im curious if anyone else has had this kind of reaction to himalayan salt??I am quite disappointed that I cannot seem to tolerate it,especially since it contains so many trace minerals that I know would be beneficial.
The only good thing I have found is that it is AMAZING for my congested skin and blackheads.I mix it up with some water,apply it to my face and let the mixture dry and then wash it off,my skin literally glows afterwards!I am using it on my body too as I suffer on and off with body acne.Is it possible that I could absorb some of the trace mineral benefits this way?
