It has been 3 months since my last update. I have been adding extra sea salt (about 1/8th tsp) to my morning oatmeal and using it with every meal, also been taking about 1/8 tsp with my vitamins in the morning, before my workouts and in evening before bed with my diphenhydramine HCI 25-50mg(generic benedryl) and aspirin. I tried the molasses but have stopped using it to see if the salt worked on its own and it does seem to be doing the job. Still having occasional flare-ups, usually after eating out, so I am still thinking soy may be a causal agent, either an allergic reaction or perhaps it binds to sodium and makes it unavailable causing a deficiency? So, not a complete cure, but seems like low sodium (I actually created a spread sheet using data from the USDA website to see how much sodium my healthy diet was giving me and discovered I was only getting about 600-700 mg a day, which is less than half the RDA) is definitely a major factor in my condition. I have always had lower than normal blood pressure, and do not know how much Stephen from Mansfield was taking a day to cause his negative reaction, he did not mention how many bottles of water he was drinking. If he drinks anywhere as much as I do (about a gallon/day) he was definitely over-doing it. I am taking between 1/2-1 tsp a day, which is placing me right in the middle of the RDA range. I am 45 and controlling the arrhythmia enough to get to the gym to workout daily, and my resting heart rate is now currently 52 bpm.

I have been on here before commenting about having a constant a fib problem and that i have tried just about everything and was going to concentrate on the adrenals. i read that those that have adrenal exhaustion are advised to up the sodium intake and my mineral analysis also indicated i was low in sodium. i have always been a huge avoider of salt, no canned food only fresh veggies never salted ever. i avoided salt like it was poision and then i read about natural sea salt and all the minerals that were in it and read about how salt not table salt but good quality natural salt affects heartbeat and started trying some sea salt and it really seems to be helping much to my surprise. could this be the magic key? the fact i have avoided salt and went out of my way not to ingest any salt at any time may have caused my a fib. could it be so simple? any one that has tried this or checked it out please advice about the experience because this is the first thing that really seems to fit the puzzle. sea salt has an anti arrythmic effect and i am as shocked and surprised as i can get.
