    Just to clarify the video I watched recommended you share a shot glass of this sole water between 4 500ml bottles of water and additionally add a whole lemon's juice and cayenne pepper. It certainly didn't recommend you drink very salty water.

    I've always believed that rock salt is very good for you and that the "health concerns" around salt should apply to table salt only since it is a processed chemical. I avoid table salt at all costs.

    I'm peeing nearly every half hour when my anxiety is at it's peak. I managed to go almost 4 hours yesterday but I hardly drunk anything in that time. When my anxiety isn't too bad I don't need the loo so often.

    Are you trying to cure anxiety or trying to stop the constant need to pee?
    The need to urinate is a side effect of the anxiety so you would need to treat the anxiety. I don't think that salt is recommended for anxiety.
    It could possibly cause you to retain water?. . therefore pee less?. .I dunno.

    "A part of the stress response changes include causing the body to eliminate waste as quickly as possible (so that you donít have to stop and do that when either fighting or fleeing). Many people feel the urge to go to the washroom when they are anxious or stressed. It is a common anxiety and stress reaction.

    Behaving apprehensively can also cause the body to become overly stressed. An overly stressed body can produce sensations and symptoms similar to an active stress response, but these sensations and symptoms can be more sustained and seem to occur out of the blue and for no apparent reason. So even though you may not feel overly stressed or anxious in that moment, your body may be overly stressed and therefore presenting sensations and symptoms of stress-response hyperstimulation (when the body becomes overly stressed)."

    Carry on. . ..
    That is correct and the acidity may affect your stomach if drank in excess. Again, all in moderation. Otherwise that acidity along with a combination of nutrients and minerals is what helps to establish proper ph levels. Kidneys actually acidify urine and that's important. Malfunctioning kidneys might not be able to maintain proper ph so you'll have problems. However, there are always caveats and individual circumstances. Acidity can be either too high or too low. If too low, acidic foods will help - lemon, lime, cranberries, vit. c supplements, etc. If acidity is too high, then it will make matters worse. Again, not advocating for anyone to down gallons of anything or even make it their daily drink because again, moderation, moderation, moderation. Too much of anything and it will go from being good to causing damage.

    The mainstream, well-publicized "health concerns" around salt are due to sodium chloride (aka salt) and its effects on blood pressure and heart disease (currently under debate). Nothing to do with it being a processed chemical.

    Honestly, I think you should find a doctor you trust. If you prefer natural remedies, there are lots of doctors these days who have done classical MD/DO training but might favor or at least be happy to work with you on a non-medication based approach, if that's what you prefer. There are lots of ways one can improve one's health through lifestyle, but there are also lots of hacks flogging "treatments" that have no basis in fact, and you seem to be mixing things up.

    you can pee frequently when you have bad anxiety, but it won't cause dark-colored urine or pain.

    as for "natural remedies" for anxiety...while some nutrients are beneficial to a degree, picking the best ones won't cure it. i'd stick to working with cognition-affect-behavior to bring that under control.

    though if you're ingesting small amounts (and either eliminating the corresponding amount from your meals, or seasoning them with himalayan salt instead, rather than taking it in water), no harm either.

    The idea is to get my body as healthy as possible to aid in managing my depression and anxiety through therapy (by myself) until I have a new job and can afford to start therapy with a professional again. Then when I feel I'm getting somewhere wean off medication.

    The pain is when I hold my pee in if I'm driving for example. Even if it's only on a 2 or 3 hour drive.

    We can't pick our doctors on the NHS.

    I believe that your body craves (in some cases) what it needs the most and I'm particularly sensitive to my cravings. My strongest cravings are for salmon, chicken, asparagus, broccoli, all salted very well with rock salt. If I've been feeling poop and eat what I've been craving I usually feel much better. Not sure if that's psychological or physical, probably a bit of both.

    Thornz.

    Yes you can choose your GP on the NHS, although the practice should be in the general area where you live. But you must see the GP first in order to get a referral on to a consultant/specialist. Which is the usual procedure.
    You can of course see an "out of hours" GP at any hospital, as you well know.

    In that case, I would focus on more broad principles - eating a well-balanced, healthy diet, drinking a normal amount of water, getting vigorous exercise every day, trying to get around 8 hours of quality sleep every day, perhaps making time for mindfulness/meditation or a hobby that brings you pleasure and that you find relaxing. Exercise especially has proven benefits for depression and anxiety. And then I would follow up with your doctors re: your dark urine and shooting pains when urinating.

    I know that I often crave foods that are delicious but not particularly good for me. Salty foods taste delicious so I personally wouldn't take a craving as an indication that I'm deficient in salt, but if you are really restricting the amount of salt in your diet then it's possible that's where your craving is coming from. Most people don't have trouble getting enough salt in their diet and tend to eat too much rather than too little salt.
