The kidneys (and adrenals ) are responsible for balancing the electrolytes (including sodium). So when you cleanse them you can have a bit of imbalance...but you've had similar symptoms with the fluids before - which is typical when the kidney or adrenals are stressed. Drinking fluids doesn't deplete the amount of sodium/minerals in your bloodstream, it just 'waters them down' (and that wouldn't happen if the kidneys/adrenals were working properly).
You'd be feeling tons better if you were drinkings lots of high mineral veggie broth (with lots of celery for sodium in it) every day. The "isolated salt" you take does make you feel better quicker, but it dehydrates you further/quickly and causes even more stress to the kidneys. 'Just like putting a piece of duct tape over the oil light on the dashboard stops you from being annoyed by the red light (but ultimately makes the problem much worse), taking a lot of very dehydrating salt that stresses your kidneys 'keeps you from being annoyed' by the salt imbalance, but it makes things worse. So please chop up some veggies (including lots of celery, and some seaweed if you have it) and make a veggie mineral broth, and drink that along with your juices. You'll feel much better and it won't be so stressful to your kidneys. Dehydration and not drinking enough fluid is VERY hard on the kidneys and rest of the body. Salt=dehydration.
From various websites:
Sodium levels are regulated by the kidney and adrenal gland. The adrenal gland produces a hormone called aldosterone that tells the kidneys how much sodium to retain. When either sodium or potassium becomes unbalanced, the kidney may expend the other electrolyte to maintain a balance. In kidney disease, this balancing function is lost and electrolyte imbalance occurs, causing problems with electrical conduction throughout the body, including the muscles, nerves, and heart. http://www.sharecare.com/question/sodium-levels-regulated-in-body
The kidneys and the intestines are responsible to adjust the amount of sodium in the body according to its needs. Intestines absorb sodium if levels are too low and the kidneys release any excessive amount of the mineral when its level increases too much....- There are a variety of conditions that can lead to a low concentration of sodium in the body.
Certain kidney disorders, extreme alcohol consumption, some medications used to treat hypertension, too much vomiting, diarrhea and certain types of cancer can all be causes for low sodium.
Typical symptoms of low sodium are very non-specific:
--muscle spasms or cramps
So, I suggest just doing the kidney cleanse without the juice fasting (or with minimal juice fasting). Do the one glass of water, followed by the lemon/lime drink (you can space them further apart if you want to), then eat 'whatever works' the rest of the day, just make sure you get the six cups of tea with 2 droppersful of tincture in each cup.
I really think you need this cleanse, jboy! I know it's a pain in the butt to be making the veggie/mineral broth, but it will make you feel SO much better and it will make it so you can do what you need to be doing :)
