they say to start with 1/2 a teaspoon to a quart of water and slowly work your way up to truly hydrate your body...
at what point do you stop? can you take too much sea salt in water? what should be the limit?
I personally just add the himalayan salt to all the food I eat, I been doing it for 2 months, and I am quite a heavy salt user (himalayan only). My last check of blood pressure was 109/63. Then I just drink my water throughout the day. Himalayan salt doesn't act like regular salt. I understand the n=1 and that trials should be on individual bases, but my mother was very sensitive to salt, she could literally feel bloated and the veins in her hand would feel inflamed with normal salt intake, within like 30 min, when she did himalayan salt, she had no effect and she does have high blood pressure. Plus salt isn't the only thing that raises your blood pressure, it is also fructose. There seems to be a magic number for hydrating. I think it was take your body weight in pounds divide by 2, and that is the number of ounces of water you should drink. For ever diuretic drink add 8 - 12 ounces of water
So I guess if you weight 200lbs you drink 100 oz of water and if you drink a cup of coffee that day then drink 112 oz of water :)
Who is "they' do you have a web site you saw this info on or a book, etc? I use Himalayan pink salt in all my cooking plus I do make my own 'Gatorade' type drink using this salt as well. I used to be salt phobic, as per CW (conventional wisdom) but after years of enjoying salt my blood pressure has dropped and normalized, of course this is only one factor in my Paleo Lifestyle.
Drinking saltwater sounds gross to me. Also, there is something called the saltwater flush (SWF), which is a technique used during fasting to flush out debris from the intestine. The premise is, when water has a certain percentage of salt, it is not absorbed, but just travels through the digestive system. I've tried it--it works quite well as intended. It's like pooping water with chunks in it. I imagine if you tried it without fasting, you would become very bloated.
I have found a few ways of drinking water that are not only efficiently hydrating, they are pleasant to drink. One is a dash of raw apple cider vinegar (Braggs brand) in warm water, and the other is a squirt of lemon juice in a glass of warm water. These are still quite hydrating when the water is cool.
Why you would want to drink salt water, I do not know.
