sodium fatigue

Posted on: December 9, 2010

as i said in my last entry, i was going to focus on spiritual stuff, but…

i want to add a word about about low blood sodium

(since i am just realizing how important an issue it can be during an infection)

without getting too technical, infections are a strain on the adrenal gland – and the adrenal gland helps maintain a healthy blood sodium level (as well as normal blood sugar levels, too, among other things, but that’s another discussion)

so fatigue related to an infection can not only be due to the fact that the body is tired from the immune system fighting the bad germ guys, but also from the fact that the infection could have temporarily drained the adrenals capacity to keep up the blood sodium level

so, as i discussed in my previous post, the Arm & Hammer baking soda protocol is just the thing needed to help raise blood sodium levels

as a side note, i should add that i have been supporting my adrenals during my bout with the viral infection with adrenal cortex extract – but even with that, the baking soda 2 or 3 times a day in a glass of water would have been a great idea to do DURING the acute phase of the infection

unfortunately i was ignorant and didn’t do that, so here i am using the baking soda to help raise my energy levels after almost 4 weeks of fatigue

lesson learned
