Are You Salt Sensitive or Potassium Deficient

Posted on Sep 01, 2019

Ezekiel Diet Note:  Most people are potassium deficient because of their out-of-control sodium consumption. It turns many people into huge fluid blobs. You need 4 mg of potassium for every 1 mg of sodium. If you’re consuming 10,000 mg of sodium a day, which is very possible if you’re eating processed and fast food, then you need 40,000 mg of potassium. That’s 133 bananas. This is the issue you have to address.

I wholeheartedly agree with the assumption most people are potassium deficient. You can buy potassium supplements, but most readily available tablets will only be 100 mg. This is because it’s dangerous to consume too much potassium because it’s an electrolyte that can get out of balance and cause a heart attack. But it’s also dangerous to consume too much sodium.  Three potassium tablets would equal a banana. You would have to take 47 – 100 mg tablets to get enough potassium for every 1,000 mg of sodium a day.  It’s really not an option. So either control your sodium intake or eat a 133 bananas a day if you aren’t monitoring and controlling sodium.

So 1,000 mg of sodium is a half a teaspoon and requires 4,700 mg of potassium. Remember potassium is in everything you consume (almost) including eggs, meat, vegetables, fruit, and coffee (caffeine and decaf) but probably not enough if you’re consuming uncontrolled sodium. I’ve tracked my potassium before while eating clean and it was in the 2,500 to 3,500 mg range from food and coffee alone. Which is low. Consult with your doctor before taking extra potassium.

Here’s the issue I see with the advice Dr. Berg gives in this video. He refers to a 1,000 mg of salt as though it’s easy to limit it that low and even suggests many people may be reducing sodium lower than 1,000 mg and suffering side-effects.  If you add the sodium naturally occurring in eggs, meat, vegetables and fruit you have at least 500+ mgs alone. This kind of suggests that’s what God intended to be normal before we polluted the food supply with salt. Using even a little butter and salad dressing or sauces and you’ll easily exceed 1,000 mg, probably 2,000 mg once you add in naturally occurring sodium. My experience is any sodium intake below 2,000 mg a day takes a lot of work and diligence. One teaspoon of salt is 2,300 mg. You don’t have to ever pick up a salt shaker to get thousands of extra milligrams of sodium if you’re consuming processed food.  Restaurant meals can easily exceed 5,000 to 10,000 in one sitting.  Salt sells food and drinks at restaurants. It’s why bars put out free salty nuts and pretzels. Eat a bag of chips and you’re already off the charts with too much sodium.

So if you are consuming 2,000 mg of sodium a day you need like 8,000 mg of potassium.  That’s up to 27 bananas, or 16 large zucchini or squash, or 10 cups of cooked spinach. One cup of raw spinach only has 187 mg of potassium; cook it down and increase the potassium. I prefer spinach cooked with a little garlic and butter. I’m now looking for a way to drink most of my potassium needs.  Maybe start buying spinach in huge bags and blending it into a drink mix with Stevia or fruit.

This is a big problem for many people.  If you’re not eating fruit and vegetables and drinking a lot of coffee you have a potassium deficiency and you’re probably carrying a couple dozen pounds of excess fluid. Track it for a week and see.  Google potassium in different foods. It’s not hard.

Spike Your Potassium:

Take Dr. Berg’s Advanced Evaluation Quiz:

People that are salt sensitive are usually told to stay away from sodium.

But did you know that we need 1000mg of sodium and 4700mg of potassium RDA? If you are deficient in sodium, you experience headaches, fatigue, lethargy, nausea, and weak muscles.

Sodium and potassium work together. Instead of accepting the diagnosis that you need to cut down your salt, try to increase your potassium intake to 4700mg daily. This will especially help with high blood pressure. Increase your potassium by taking supplements, but it’s best to eat 7-10 cups of vegetables.
