Adrenal Fatigue

The Real Story About Salt

Posted by Miss Lizzy
May 26, 2010

According to James Wilson author of Adrenal Fatigue, salt craving is a common symptom for all stages of adrenal fatique.  Sadly our salt-phobic society has deprived millions of people the very nutrient needed to decrease adrenal fatigue symptoms and increase recovery.  For people with high blood pressure salt can be an issue but since low blood pressure is one of the common symptoms of adrenal fatigue salt may greatly benefit adrenal sufferers. Wilson says unless you are one of the rare people with adrenal fatigue and high blood pressure, go ahead and salt your food.

 

But salt is not created equally.  On Stop the Thyroid Madness, they say sea salt contains important trace minerals, that are mostly removed from table salt. Recom mended daily amounts of sea salt are 1/4 to 1/2 tsp in water twice a day for Aldosterone and Adrenal Fatigue.

 

Health reasons aside, sea salt just tastes better. After following a very specific eating program, the HypoT Girl’s Diet, it’s really important to me that my food tastes good. And for me that means good salt!  To understand the difference, take the taste test challenge. Buy some sea salt (I like Real Sea Salt and Celtic Sea Salt) and compare to regular table salt. If you’re like me, you will never go back to plain table salt. 

One important note, real sea salt is not iodized so I supplement my iodine intake separately with J.Crow’s® Lugol’s Solution of Iodine.

    What is the benefit of using iodine?

    According to healthyonline.com, the thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in the body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.

    Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. In addition, they are beneficial for:

    • Normal growth and development
    • Protein synthesis
    • Cholesterol synthesis
    • Carbohydrate absorption
    • Energy metabolism
    • Nerve and bone formation
    • Reproduction
    • The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
    • Speech and mental state
    • Cold hands and feet
