He put together 3 episodes in the salt series and they're all three really well done. I found it intriguing because two years ago I did get a diagnosis of a kidney issue that flushes out the salt and other minerals from my urine, diabetes insipidus. I also noted a few years ago I couldn't work out without a sports drink on hand or would have terrible PEM and rhabdomyolysis, muscle breakdown (but thought I needed the sugar since my GI doesn't work correctly I figured it had to do with glycogen stores getting depleted and my body refusing to burn fat because of my high estrogen).
I was told the kidney issue would most likely resolve on its own and no other action was needed on my part so I thought it just wasn't that bad. Like a small novelty illness, that made me run to the loo all the time. (I urinate so frequently I'm like a small dog on a walk - I swear it's the most embarrassing thing...) But growing up my Mom and Grandma were the same way and they told me, "yeah you'll have to drink and pee non-stop when you grow up." I honestly have always thought it was part of life. Isn't that what being 40 means? Knowing where every public bathroom is on any given route? I drink a liter of water over night, but that's uh' normal right?
I may have taken the kidney problem more seriously if I didn't have IBD and chronic gastritis - those problems like to put exclamation points on everything in my life !!!!!! and get all the attention. I really figured the CFS was from a GI related issue.
Now I'm not so sure, and putting Himalayan Sea Salt in my water bottle is a pretty simple step to start consistently doing. Maybe I should have paid attention to the kidney issue a long time ago, the GI problems might have just been a red herring. *shrug*
