Is drinking sea salt benefits you

I have experienced T.I.A and dizziness caused by Parkinson's medication as well as dehydratin due to changes of weather from cold and heated climate as well as sideffect on parkinson's medication.

Is drinking sea salt helpful for your low blood pressure?

Dear Mr. Teo,
Salt, even sea salt, can be a concern. It depends on your overall medical history. As you have had a transient ischemic attack, along with dizziness and PD, I would not be willing to advise you one way or the other. Only your personal physician is in a position to determine whether added sodium is likely to be beneficial.

For dizziness caused by hypotension (a sudden drop in blood pressure), it is often recommended to drink plenty of water. This increases the blood volume and may help to maintain a more even blood pressure. I would ask your doctor if increased use of fluids might be beneficial for you.

Best regards,
