    Hi everyone - Nice to get back to the message board. I've just finished reading many messages about drinking salt water. Would appreciate if someone could share the reasons why and how successful this treatment is? Iodine ws also mentioned? I take synthroid for thyroid disease. Don't know if that were interfere? Anything you can share would be appreciated. Thx

    I have only been doing this a week, but I have grown rather fond of drinking it. I use the sea salt, 1/4 tsp to every quart of water. I mix up the quart and keep it cold and I squeeze a 1/4 of a lemon into my glass with it. It's very refreshing, especially in this summer heat.

    There are lots of reasons for drinking it, but it's supposed to help with NMH (hypotension) which is why I drink it. With the lemon juice added, it seems cleansing and I noticed it acts as an appetite suppressant

    Just bumped the article for you. Salt is Vital, posted by PatPalmer. Iodine is necessary to avoid Goiter, which is still a problem in the US.

    I "bumped" an article to the front page for you to read. Every time you reply to a post, it gets bumped to the top of the first page.

    The article starts out "Salt is vital..." , it was posted by Pat Palmer. Just look for the name next to the post title. It's about half way down right now.
