Hi, I am new to Lyme and was wondering why I'm craving so much salt.
High water intake is extremely important for me (even prior to having Lyme) and I know it's supposed to help cleanse toxins in general.
I read on another post other Lyme patients crave salt too and it helps with water retention. So is it logical to assume that we are craving more salt to keep our water levels up?
Or is there another mechanism at work here? So is this something our body needs to recover or is it the Lyme bacteria trying to create a better environment for itself?
Sorry I just need to know if my body is sending me the wrong signals or if I should listen to it. Thank you for your input.
