Ion Channelopathy – As part of my eight step protocol I drank an 8oz can of V-8 vegetable juice everyday. My intention was to add salt to my diet so that my chronic low blood pressure would rise to a more normal level (so please don’t start chugging salt as it can be dangerous). I was not aware at the time that I was also providing my metabolism with a liquid Ion Cocktail - full of high dose, easily available ions – specifically sodium, chloride, potassium and calcium (the calcium was taken as a supplement at the same time). If you feel that this may apply to you, you should discuss it with your medical practitioner before undertaking any course of treatment. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, you can determine any contraindications and regularly monitor your blood pressure.
I wrote up a full description of my thoughts on this for a later edition of my book. In case you have an earlier version, read about Ion Channelopathy under Further Lessons on the menu bar above this post. And if you search for CFS and Channelopathy, there are more and more references online to this ion malfunction of cellular wall transfer.
