Re: Insomnia and Low Blood Pressure, Aldosterone

My mother drank salt water (table salt - added to warm water) to get to sleep over a period of many years.  She would also get up during the night if she couldn't sleep and drink more salt water.  She did have sleeping problems.

She had some low blood pressure but not low enough to worry about and no other physical issues.  Long story short - she died at age 76 of a series of minor strokes that took place over about three years.  Her mother, father and all her siblings lived well into their 80's - in fact one of her sisters lived to be 100.  Mom didn't drink alcohol, coffee or tea or carbonated beverages, just the salt water and sometimes milk.  I'm of the opinion that saltwater was a major contributor to her death.

I'm a long time martini drinker, coffee drinker, and lots of plain water and I'm now in my 81st year of life.  In fact, I think it was the beer pitchers full of martinis that we used to drink at Happy Hour in the Marine Corps that got me here.  Or was it the olives?  George Burns drank martinis on a daily basis, didn't exercise, and played poker most every day too and he lived to be 100 like my aunt.
