Sole water

As adrenals are supposed to love salt, has anybody tried sole water in an effort to heal tired adrenals.

Paragraph from website states.......

Let’s begin by noting that I am not talking about table salt here, which is made up of only sodium and chloride. What I am talking about is combining mineral-rich, unrefined natural salts and water to make a electrolyte-dense brine that is taken as a supplement every morning.

An electrolyte is a compound that ionizes when dissolved in liquid, meaning it becomes a charged molecule. Different types of electrolytes include sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, calcium sulfate, magnesium, and phosphate.

When we combine natural salt and water, the positive ions of the salt surround the negative ions of the water molecules and vice versa, creating a totally new structure with an electrical charge that is more absorbable for the body. When ingested into the body, the electrical charge of the solution helps the body to send electrical signals from one cell to another and assists the kidneys in maintaining fluid balances in the body.

Two of the most common salts used to make sole are Grey Atlantic Sea Salt (sometimes called Celtic Grey) and Himalayan Pink Salt. There are, however, many other great mineral-rich salts to choose from. I personally use Grey Atlantic Sea Salt because it has not been processed and contains all of its natural essential minerals.

Hi Flower, never heard of it being called sole water but my husband takes his sea salt this way and it has improved his energy greatly - never thought about it in terms of adrenals. Too much salt in water makes me feel sick so I take mine on food. Perhaps I should have another go at dissolving a small amount.


Hi Flower and LuckyKat,

I too have exhausted adrenal glands and have POTS,so have to increase my salt.I use sea salt on my food,find it difficult to drink a solution of it.I was told by my Endo to drink Diorlyte to keep my electrolytes balanced.It's a powder in a sachet,we used to give them to the children after a tummy bug.We have our own well so I drink a lot of water,I love it.But in drinking so much water it's evidently possible to flush the good minerals out of your body,hence the need for diorlyte at times,or an isotonic sports drink if I am out and begin to feel weak.I have ME/CFS and Endo discovered that my adrenal function was very poor plus very low morning cortisol.I also read that high protein intake in the morning helps adrenal glands and increases energy without having to take a load of sugary stuff,which actually stresses adrenal glands even more.I take a pea protein powder mixed in water and juice,find it very good.
