If you have cravings for salty foods especially at night, this video is for you, where Dr. Berg answers the main reason behind this craving condition. When you are deficient in something, the body will cause the cravings to a certain specific thing that resembles that mineral or nutrients. Salt is sodium chloride, salt cravings mean you’re deficient in sodium.
The body has a hormone called Aldosterone that has one vital purpose which is to retain and hold sodium. Without sodium, the nerves could not conduct nerve impulses, the muscles can’t contract, the fluids would not be in balance and the body could not be able to transport calcium and other nutrients as well.

• Hold onto sodium
• Stimulated by low salt diet – 3x more aldosterone
• Medication blocks aldosterone
• Older people don’t have the amount of aldosterone to hold the sodium

The side effects of not having enough sodium are way worse than having too much sodium.

Conditions that Causes Sodium Deficiency
• Salt-free diet
• Diuretics
• Excess Water (Gallons of Water intake)
• Ketogenic Diet – from doing the high carb diet where you are retaining a lot of fluid and holding more salt then when you do keto it gets rid of the excess fluid that could also remove the excess minerals. So you need to put it back in.
• Exercise – produces sweat where you can also lose sodium.
• Cirrhosis
• Adrenal Fatigue
• Hypothyroid

Action Steps
1. Consume between 1 – 1.5tsp. of Sea Salt per day
2. Adjust based on cravings
3. High potassium foods – (4700mg) by increasing 7 to 10 cups of vegetables
4. Show your doctor the studies
