Re: Sodium?



yes a high sodium diet will help increase/elevate byour blood pressure thus making a "cushion" for your blood pressure to vary whereas you'd normally faint. Be aware of your fluid intake, it makes a huge difference.

You'd know if you fainted. You don't hear or see anything whebn you're out, itis like being in a very deep sleep w/o dreaming.
