Age 25. 170cm. 72kg. I’ve been having low sodium diet for a very long time without even realising. Most of the food that that i eat at home has very little salt. So i’ve been preparing my own meal for the past few days and tried to increase my sodium intake by using himalayan salt mainly. Around 2g of salt per meal. 3 times a day. First day,i got sinus attack, watery nose, brain fog, headache, tired. I keep on continue and think that the effects might go away. 3rd day now, still got tired, brain fog, minor headache. No more watery nose and sinus. I also notice after each meal i feel warmer but several hours later i can feel my body felt cold. Iodine reaction from the himalayan salt perhaps? detox reaction? Anyone has any clue or idea about this? Im going to try to give it a week or two if i can stand the reaction.
Reason increase sodium intake because:
- notice has been consume very low sodium diet
- felt tired all the time and suspect low sodium can be one of the factor
