Yep, it's the lite salt. The cramping went away, and I felt a litte bit of a state change after I downed the first bottle. I thought I'd try it since it's more economical in the long run and I'm forgetful when it comes to pills. I make the Good Girl Moonshine drink and put the quarter teaspoon in it. It's like a KetoAide with some vinegar in it.

I never doubt the wisdom of the body! Glad you got what you needed in a timely fashion.

Thanks for sharing those links, Julia. I personally start my day with sole (for the last 6 years), and this seems to keep all potential issues off the table.

Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

Curious what you mean by "lite salt water"? Are you talking about that Potassium Chloride or whatever it is, sold as "Lite Salt" for those trying to avoid the pure table salt Sodium Chloride ??

I use the Celtic Sea Salt and also have some Himalayan Salt - both have lots of minerals and trace elements. Some have more than others - this link below documents over 75:

Was trying to find the other link from Celtic Salt's own website showing the listing of minerals, but found this interesting blog commenting on "incorrect" info on salt that was much publicized 20 years ago by Ann Louise Gittleman.

Also has a "recipe" to use in helping re-balance adrenals... which I think I will try.

I've noticed that when I'm a bit out of sorts, some salt water does help me. In fact, the other day (I wrote a blog about this), I was in a weird dream and suddenly felt like I needed to just get up, skip the dream, get out of it and get up. I woke up with my heart pounding and somehow immediately realized I needed not only water, but salt water. I drank my usual 24 oz tall glass full, with about 1/4 tsp celtic salt, and boom! felt better immediately and my heart rate dropped back down. Strange.... well... not really as I've experienced benefits like that in the daytime. I guess the strange part was waking up out of a dream "knowing" I needed to get some salt water as soon as I woke up.

Oh well. So I digress a bit... anyway, that's not the be all and end all, but in general a little salt water should help keep things a bit more balanced and even-keeled?

I'm taking a B complex and a multivitamin, so that's odd.

I am having to go get some tests done next week, because they're reconsidering my diagnosis. She was going so fast I didn't get to ask about therapy services yesterday. I'm hoping it's just a spell and things are getting to me more than a few weeks ago.

Thanks James!

If you are taking metformin do take some extra vitamin B. Metformin blocks the absorption of vitamin B, and long term (like over some years) this is bad for you. I don't think vitamin B impacts your mood so quickly, but just a heads up from me.

I had low vitamin B after years of Metformin, and I'm sure that is what messed me up.

A little googling does show that Metformin can cause some folks to have mood swings:

Do see your medical doctor to discuss your issues.

I've gotten some of my bad temper back and have had an anxiety attack this month. I wanted to know if could be an electrolyte or a vitamin problem. I'm trying to take a vitamin daily and have added lite salt water to my regimen because of some leg cramps I had recently, in addition to the metformin and vitamin D supplement I'm on.
