Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 24, 2007

With this “new” heart symptom I recalled a past entry in my blog about a person with a similar problem with the calcium/magnesium ratios and I remember he mentioned something about potassium. The full entry was for August 10, 2007.

As I was struggling through this irregular heart rate problem, I found that two things often helped the situation: potassium and vitamin B-5. Potassium often helped and I think the reason for this is that potassium and magnesium are antagonistic minerals. Since I was essentially suffering from too much magnesium (or too little calcium), the potassium helped because it reduced the metabolic effect of the magnesium (or assisted the metabolism of calcium). I think this is important, particularly for persons with hypothyroidism, because they need a higher calcium to magnesium ratio. A potassium deficiency could prevent the cells from getting enough calcium which is an activator in the cellular response to thyroid hormone.

I also know that technically, my potassium should be low because of my long time stressed adrenals and the link with high copper. Interestingly, there is also a link with a potassium ratio and candida.

Effects Of Copper On Other Minerals

Copper, in excess, tends to lower manganese, zinc and potassium levels.

Correction of the sodium/potassium ratio is essential to eliminate yeast problems, because this is indicative of adrenal insufficiency, induced hyper-alkalinity, an impaired immune system, and deficient hydrochloric acid and bile acid secretion.

Excessive Intake of Sweets, Fruits and Fruit Juices

The majority of copper-toxic individuals have an insatiable craving for sweets, fruit, and fruit juices. Such cravings arise from the fact that copper-toxic individuals, in general, suffer from a severe potassium deficiency. Fruit, fruit juices and vegetables are high in potassium content, and hence the craving for these foods.
