Hi pamshoes; I did large amounts of salt (himalayan) for years before I took potassium. This made me get half way there.
I always had a "normal" to low blood pressure.
When I took potassium, chloride form; I noticed better sleep, more energy. The strange thing was that my craving for salt diminished. So it made me wonder if it was the chloride I craved more than the sodium.
If salt craving I would go for it, low aldosterone may indicate salt waisting;
" WHAT HAPPENS IF ALDOSTERONE GETS TOO HIGH OR LOW? When aldosterone gets too high (as it can under stress and as your cortisol goes too high), your blood pressure also gets too high and your potassium levels become too low. You can have muscle cramps, muscle weakness, and numbness or tingling in your extremities.But when it gets too low, which can be common in some patients with cortisol deficiency, your kidneys will excrete too much salt, and it leads to low blood pressure; low blood volume; a high pulse and/or palpitations, dizziness and or lightheadedness when you stand; fatigue; a craving for salt. Symptoms of low aldosterone can also include frequent urination, sweating, a slightly higher body temperature, and a feeling of thirst, besides the craving of salt. Potassium can at first rise too high, then fall, as well"
is also involved.
When it comes to frequent nightly urination, nothing worked better in my cases than boron; but much larger amounts than 3 mg was needed; //www.curezone.org/forums/fm.asp?i=2085591#i
