Where We Get Too Much

  • in most processed foods (salt)
  • + occurs naturally in smaller quantities in many foods such as:
  • celery
  • beets
  • carrots
  • milk

Be Especially Cautious If:

  • you have high blood pressure because
  • you may be sensitive to salt (although not everyone with high blood pressure is salt sensitive) or if
  • you have any other problems which mean  you should avoid salt, such as:
  • heart or
  • kidney

Bad Effects
of Excess Sodium:

  • Excess sodium has been found to cause
  • elevated blood pressure levels
  • especially in the 20% to 40% of the population with a family history of high blood pressure
  • possible connections between high levels of sodium and:
  • changes in the level of stomach acid secretion
  • stomach cancer
  • migraine headaches
  • blood vessel disease in the heart and brain

Check Your Adrenal System Recommendations Too

Healthy adrenal glands are essential for maintaining normal sodium levels, so check those recommendations too - here is the direct link. Below I also include a  home test to check the health of your adrenal glands.

Your Adrenal Glands Help Maintain Sodium Levels

The Endocrine System including the Adrenal Glands, which help keep your sodium levels balanced

Sodium is Essential
to Our Existence

Most of what is written about this chemical element is negative, but it is essential to our existence and is necessary for the preservation of our health.

Reduce Salt Intake

Sodium is a necessary nutrient and most people are not bothered by having a little salt in their diet. But, because you have a high score, you should try not to add salt to your food at the table, or in cooking, unless it is absolutely necessary.

Cut Back On

  • bacon
  • salami
  • ham
  • cheese
  • most processed and prepared foods including:
  • most fast food meals unless significantly salt-reduced

To Help Balance Levels:

  • eat more foods rich in potassium:
  • potatoes
  • peas
  • peppers
  • eggplant
  • tomatoes
  • bananas
  • apricots
  • fresh leafy greens
  • cantaloupe
  • avocados
  • parsley
  • citrus fruits
  • crushed sunflower seeds
  • figs
  • peaches (especially dried)
  • turkey
Citrus fruit helps balance sodium levels
Figs help balance sodium levels
fresh leafy greens help balance  sodium levels
bananas help balance sodium levels

A Self-Test to Check
Adrenal Health

You will need a blood pressure monitor.

Lie down and rest for five minutes.

After five minutes, take your blood pressure (while lying down).

Next, stand up and immediately take another reading.

If your blood pressure is lower after you stand up, your adrenals may be functioning poorly.

Adrenal Glands help keep sodium levels balanced
