Got Real Salt?

Chef Jemichel reports on his experiment with a low salt diet.

I have just completed an "experiment" with minimizing salt in my diet. I'm now much more certain of the essential importance of including real salt in the diet!

Over the past several weeks I had dropped my salt intake to an average of less than a quarter teaspoon per day. Very soon after I reduced the salt I began having leg cramps! I did not connect it with the low salt as I have had leg cramps in the past before I had varicose vein surgery about forty years ago and since the varicose veins have reappeared I automatically associated the leg cramps with the veins. Now I read Dr. Brownstein's article and there find leg cramps as symptomatic of insufficent salt in the diet! My "experiment" is now over! I'm looking forwward to adding at least a teaspoon of Celtic and pink Himalayan salt back into my daily diet.

Ye are the salt of the Earth!

"Lower Your Salt Intake? Fugetaboutit!":

Just added this comment there.:

Thank You So Very Much Dr. B!!!

As a direct result of reading your article I have immediately ended my low salt "experiment"! Fortunately I was only experimenting on my own body and also fortunately the "experiment" lasted only for a few weeks. To celebrate I just took a big swig of a well-salted shot of the best spring water with a good amount of "Brittany" sea salt! Mmmmmmm, delicious! I love real salt!

Continuing faithfully with the inclusion of "real salt" in my daily diet (last few months have been using pink Himalayan) however the leg cramps returned several days ago in a most intense way! Definitely got my attention! Now searching for physical remedies for the varicose veins (that I'm reasonably certain are largely implicated in the leg cramps) and found the following:

There is a strong suggestion that the antioxidant capabilities of troxerutin (a flavonoid) are at least in part responsible for its positive effects on varicose veins, venous insufficiency, and hemorrhoids. Studies employing free-radical quenchers such as allopurinol and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) for the topical treatment of venous ulcers have been shown to be helpful, supporting the idea that free radicals are involved.28 Other flavonoids, including hesperidin and diosmin, have been shown to be remarkably effective against vasicose veins, especially hemorrhoids.:
