    High cellular Sodium - How to lower?

    General question, but how does one lower excess tissue or cellular sodium levels if one is hypothyroid, without resorting to thyroid medications? Does lowering dietary salt help in this case or not? Thanks

    STUDY: high serotonin linked to dementia; MEDIA: low serotonin linked to dementia

    Once again, a level of misreporting that I am much more included to ascribe to malice than incompetence simply because most of the popular press outlets covering a specific scientific study get the study authors to proof-read the press article before publishing. So, for patently false press...

    BIG SALT Exists! Video Claims Food Processors Manipulate Research

    Big Salt exists as the food processing industry because nobody's choking down salt free hamburgers or pizzas. A government anti-salt crusade would destroy them. This means there's far more money in salt than salt restriction imo. Research on salt has been manipulated according to this video...

    SIPPING sugar / sweetened water every 5 minutes for stress relief

    Sugars acute anti-stress property isnt just sugar itself, it's the sweetness signalling that creates rapid adjustment to CRH stress neurons (at first i thought that was due to the dopamine release , but that doesn't look likely actually) Corticotropin Releasing Hormone releases ACTH which...

    Drinking Sole-Water In The Morning (Profoundly Anti-Stress)

    I recently made myself some sole-water (hyperconcentraded salt water) and added two teaspoons of that (roughly 1000mg sodium) into my morning glass of mineral water. Each morning I feel an immediate stress relief, increase in body temperature and pulse, warmth, my blue-ish hands (tend to have...

    Difference between Salt and Sodium?

    After reviewing Ray's and Georgi's writings on salt I decided to start tracking it and making a concerted effort to get more, as I've been deficient lately. Some great links below: More Dietary Salt Increases Urea Synthesis And Energy...

    The One Thing From Experience That Has Solved Most Issues

    I have seen so many posts about getting enough calcium, b vitamins, zinc, copper, etc. I see barely any posts talking about the one thing that EVERYONE needs more than anything. Potassium. Most people do not get enough and even if they do, they also get too much sodium which depletes their...

    Salt intake

    every time I drink water because I feel dehydrated and I pee dark yellow, I drink water, but after that I end up having cold extremities, cold in general and I urinate very transparent quickly. Could this be because my body is so lacking in minerals and bottled water today is almost all weakly...

    Simple saline solution stops SARS-CoV-2...and maybe all viruses?

    More news adding to the evidence that COVID-19 and its associated virus are little more than a media circus, at least when it comes to the gauging the pandemic's true danger to our health. We already have at least two amazing studies showing vitamins D/E can not only stop/treat COVID-19, but are...

    Serotonin (and SSRI drugs) can cause anxiety and PTSD

    Yet another great study exposing just how much of a "happy hormone" serotonin really is. As usual, the popular press article does everything possible to avoid pointing the finger at serotonin and even engages in misdirection. For example, it says that SERT is the main target of drugs like...

    How much sodium should I really be getting?

    I know that RP suggests getting more sodium/salt than the FDA does but how much is really too much/not enough? My diet is mostly yogurt, kefir, fruit and juice, plus some cola and coffee. The only supplement I use is 25mg zinc citrate, which is like 8mg elemental zinc. No real sodium content...

    Liquid Alternatives

    I live in a hot and humid climate and I feel a strong urge to drink fluids throughout the day. Since I started peating (I have been consuming a lot more salt than before), I started to feel less desire to drink liquids throughout the day, I stopped drinking pure water, nowadays I only drink...

    The study is a bit specific but it shows in essence that GABA is dependent on salt (sodium chloride) to function, and that the strength of GABA activation in the mammalian body can be controlled to an extent by controlling salt intake. It also is another piece of evidence showing the...
