Whoever posted about adding healthy salt to water...
Thank you! Adding the pink himalayan salt has helped keep my system running more smoothly. I put a small pinch in my water bottle ever time I fill it. The pink salt is the only salt we use at home but I wasn't getting enough before.

The healthy salt, not refined table salt, (usually grey or pink salt) has all the naturally occurring minerals in it not just sodium. They work together to balance the water retention and other processes. Water is absorbed from the colon and it seems to balance the uptake. I read an article recently and I wish I could give you the link, but my memory is the pits. something about sodium, potassium, magnesium and other minerals working together in balance. Table salt only has sodium, and it is heavily refined.
I used to have problems with pitted edema quite often but since switching to healthier salt I can use tons of it and not swell. If I eat out though, I can definitely tell the difference in the salt.
