The Deleterious Health Effects of Sodium/Potassium Imbalance: An Orthomolecular Solution
Saul Pilar, MD

No animals are dependent on salt in their natural diet. The recent human diet has evolved rapidly and now includes nearly toxic amounts of sodium and deficiency of potassium.  The ratio of sodium to potassium is seriously reversed leading to a multitude of common illnesses including stroke, obesity, mental, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and renal conditions. The measurements of daily sodium and potassium in urine correlate with morbidity of patients in research studies. Orthomolecular supplementation of potassium and a reduction of sodium will lead to major health improvements and the prevention of disease .
