Electrolytes

Elaine writes:
An electrolyte broadly means that if you put it in a solution, it will divide and one half will carry a negative charge and the other a positive charge. For example, salt is sodium chloride and when put into a solution, divides into positively charged sodium and negatively charged chloride ions. The most important electrolytes in the body (and when we talk about the body, we talk on the cellular level) are potassium, magnesium, phosphate, sulfate, bicarbonate and small quantities of sodium and chloride. Each of the above substances exist in the watery parts of the cell (the protoplasm) and provide a charged particle of sodium (for example) which are absolutely essential for cellular reactions.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
