Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for February 11, 2008


I have a feeling that my potassium is still very high and here’s something that would certainly suggest that they are.

Adrenals and high Potassium

When the adrenals become fatigued and unable to release adequate amounts of aldosterone or cortisol, potassium levels rise, sodium and blood sugar levels fall, body fluid volume decreases and hypotension and dehydration can result.

In theory, because of the known effects of licorice, there may be some benefits of licorice for high potassium levels caused by a condition called hypoaldosteronism. There is early evidence in humans in support of this use. However, research is preliminary and a qualified health care provider should supervise treatment.

I’ll add calcium and licorice root and see if that makes any difference.
