high carb diets and low electrolyte balance
Posted by: Panchito ()
Date: August 25, 2017 05:15PM

Some people experience problems in a high carb diet but they don't know what is going on. Usually it is from an electrolyte imbalance (Na, P). These are needed and used in many functions. For example, high carb diets use more phosphorus than normal. Symptoms are:

polyuria (frequent urination)

constipation (from soft muscle weakness - low electrolytes in enteric nervous system)

depression (alteration of brain; brain swelling (low Na))

bad sleep

low energy

The highest food in phosphorus is pumpkin seeds. Sea salt contains Na + P and other stuff.

Hi Panchito, interesting discussion, including about constipation. What do you think of this:

Yes. Low sodium will do it. Other factors are low vitamin Bs. Vitamin Bs boost the conversion of food to energy (mood, no constipation, etc). I personally don't like salt. Though I know it is essential. There is not enough in food. But I do like sea salt foot baths and I believe they help.
