• Are Your Symptoms From Nutritional Deficiencies? Mine Are!

    ALKALINE VEGGIESI don’t know  about you, but for me, there is good news and bad news. The bad news is that I have had to struggle with crazy health problems and deficiencies most of my adult life. The good news is that because I’ve had to work with naturalists and nutritionists for so many years, I’ve learned a tremendous amount of info about the body and how it was meant to work!

    Thyroid- I had never given it a thought, probably even laughed at thyroid jokes until my own thyroid decide to short out on me. Besides learning that this can be one of the sickest sicks known to modern man, I also learned to watch for the symptoms of a sluggish thyroid.

    Low Thyroid Function

    1. Tired, tired, tired!
    2. Cold hands, especially the finger tips for me…almost to the unbearable stage.
    3. Change in cardio function.
    4. Breaking, brittle nails.
    5. Throat swelling.

    We hear a lot about potassium, but I really had never thought about magnesium until I began to have more cramping (especially legs and hands) than could be tolerated. What I learned is that I am almost always low on magnesium if I am not supplementing, and sometimes even if I am taking extra magnesium.

    Magnesium Deficiency

    1. Cold hands.
    2. Tender calves.
    3. Excessive cramping.
    4. Brittle nails.

    Sodium Deficiency

    1. Low, LOW blood pressure.
    2. Sick all over feeling, to the point I can almost not pick up a foot to walk.

    Obviously, there are  so many things that can cause all of these, but when I have problems, these are always the first place I look, and I’m usually right!
