Your salt craving may have been your body's reaction to being dehydrated. When you lose a lot of fluid as you do when you take the Epsom Salt drinks, you also lose electrolytes including the elements sodium and potassium. The Sea Salt and lemon drink was exactly the right thing to do. The Sea Salt replaces the sodium and other trace minerals and the lemons are full of potassium. Once again, you made a very wise choice and I plan on following your example next time I flush. I have used a pinch of Sea Salt in water, but never thought of the lemons, I just took a potassium tablet.
I like to take Melatonin instead of Ornithane. Melatonin is naturally produced by the body. It is easy to find and inexpensive. I take two 3mg tablets about twenty minutes before drinking the oil (using only a tiny sip of water to swallow). Usually I am drowsey and can fall asleep within a few minutes of drinking the oil/juice.
Even though you wrote asking a question, I appreciate your advice on the lemon/sea salt drink-thanks.
