If you are light-headed upon standing, you are not getting enough naturally occurring sodium to maintain your blood pressure or possibly drinking too much water and flushing out too many minerals. I found this to be the case when I did the Fat Flush protocol which is very low salt and a lot of "cran-water". I could not always register a blood pressure on my meter and started blacking out while doing yoga. I was under the care of a cardiologist at the time and his nurse, who seemed very knowledgeable, said that I was eating less salt than their patients who were on a low/no salt diet, and I definitely needed more salt. I now know that I was having adrenal issues that were aggravated by being too low carb. She did note my excellent blood work and acknowledged that it could be attributed to dropping most of the unhealthy carbs. Geez, wish I had known about primal then!
Anyway, sea salt your food to taste and you should be fine. I really like the pink Himalayan salt but any good quality sea salt will do. With orthostatic hypotension, it's good to have a salty breakfast, so I salt the heck out of my morning eggs.
