In regards to getting salts from plants, yes we do
and we can get sodium from plants. But typically
plants have far more potassium than sodium. Even
Celery, the most touted form of sodium promoted by
Doug etc... has more than double the potassium than

So if you are trying to treat someone with severe
sodium defiency, and getting them to drink celery
juice many typically make things worse because the
excess potassium will offset the sodium added.

Doug believes that our body will "hold" the sodium
and the excess potassium will be released, thus
ending with an increase in sodium. But this theory
is pseudoscience with no studies to back it up.

World health organisations are treating chronic
dehydration with double the sodium to potassium, not
the other way around. This has scientific basis to
this ratios, well supported by many studies that
show this ratio is most preferred to allow the body
to hold water.

In my opinion Doug and Harley promote being in a
constant diuretic state, hence the frequent
urination and the need to constantly consume huge
amounts of food on a very regular basis to keep some
electrolytes coming in to replace the many
constantly being flushed out the system by the
diuretic state. This state can be maintained
perpetually, but we don't know the long term effects
of straining the body in this way, plus there are
many examples cited of the hyponatremia issues
associated when the electrolytes are not
sufficiently added.

Its must easier , safer and healthier to just add
some additional salt, rather than trying to always
play a catch up game whilst flusing electrolytes out
of the body constantly. Its very dangerous advice
and its treading a fine line.

Harley appears to get away with it because of his
overconsumption of food that maintains his
electrolyte stores, but I think long term the
constant stress on his kidneys is going to come home
to roost one day. If you constantly train your
body into a diuretic state then it might make it
much harder to get out of it in the long term.
Harley is rolling the dice with his health, so has
Doug. WHilst they think its okay, it has proven not
okay for many others. Therre advice is radical and
considered risky and dangerous in the scientific
world. I guess the choice is how much do we want to
believe and then follow from either side. There may
be a happy medium somewhere, but I think this huge
anti-salt mindset needs to be changed. Doug was
censoring talk of it here. And people have died
because of this dangerous advice.

Our cells bathe in a sodium solution. Tell me again
Doug, how sodium is so toxic? The man is a fool,
and has been proven to be a fraud on many levels.
