SIGNS OF SODIUM DEFICIENCY

SIGNS OF SODIUM DEFICIENCY

I can already hear folks saying “what, thought we are supposed to reduce our sodium intake?”,  understanding there is a difference between the table salt and the naturally occurring sodium that we find in our plant family is light years apart.

  • Mental symptoms can include:
  • Depressions
  • quarrelsome
  • Faulty memory
  • difficult thinking and recall
  • No logical basis for fears
  • critical
  • antisocial
  • sorrowful
  • sleepy restless
  • Arguments
  • traffic noises
  • household noises fray nerves

STRANGE DREAMS:
Dreams can feel unsettling, and fear inspired. Sleeplessness between hours of 1 and 5 am. Insomnia.
SOUTH POLE MOVEMENT: (bowels)Intestinal
One with sodium deficiency can be prone to constipation, liver, pancreas, skin nerves, and brain actions being slowed and feeling impaired.

 

Digestion:

Organic sodium carbonate enhances digestion and stimulates activity of the stomach walls. Oxygen in the blood and carbon gases found in the body are benefitted by it; with it, decomposed protein by products are eliminated more efficiently.

Pain may develop in the small of the back, with trembling nerve, unexplained fever, headache, thirst, lip blisters, chills, indigestion, poor appetite, sluggish colon, ballooned bowel, poor vision, pimples, falling hair, pain in sides, throat issues, dizziness and stiff and painful tendons.

 

Aveoli
The lungs and breathing patterns are often altered when sodium is depleted, causing asthma, chest tightness, sneezing and the common cold.
Low sodium can  also affect the function of the pancreas and blood sugar levels, leading towards hypoglycemia episodes (low blood sugar).

 

FOODS TO THE RESCUE: I’m going to give you some food suggestions that are naturally highest in “organic” sodium (meaning the body can use it without the same side-effects that basic table salt brings with it)

So if you find that some of the above symptoms are ones that are giving you grief, then might I suggest you adding more of the food items I’ve listed above into your daily diet and see if these symptoms begin to be a thing of the past.

You need to realize that sodium is one of the key minerals that our body needs for many functions to occur.  So many people are on sodium restricted diets because of blood pressure issues, weight issues, or if they hold water (Edema) they may be on a diuretic medication which is also going to flush the much needed sodium out as well.

Give these suggestions just two-weeks  of being incorporated into your daily meal intake, and draw your own conclusion. See  if you notice a difference in your sleep patter, your mood pattern, your bowel pattern.

Knowledge only brings power if one APPLIES the knowledge.

Healthfully yours,
