This and That and Talk - My Transplant

Posted by Rosemary, Volunteer Mentor @rosemarya, Apr 9, 2017

As our Mayo Connect community grows, I am constantly meeting organ transplant members on a wide variety of forums with a wide range of issues that are not directly transplant specific. However, because we are all transplant recipients, we have a special connection: a unique journey and best of all – a new life! We don’t always need help or advice. Many times we just want to chat with someone like us! That is my purpose in starting This and That and Talk.

Drop in and say ‘Hi’. You are welcome anytime.

What do you want t to talk about? What words can you offer to someone who is on the journey? Do you have any questions for another recipient?

Hi @tream01 Interesting that you asked about Green Salt as I’ve been considering this too! I’ve been reading articles about the salt that’s made from dehydrated samphire (sea asparagus) which has a natural salty taste. I’ve had samphire on top of a salad and it really gave that great hint of salt without leaving my mouth all burning.

Here are some of the links to articles I’ve read. You’ve probably seen them too. Not sure some of them are what I’d call credible sources of info…they should be taken with…a grain of salt. Pun intended. But looking at the product, where it’s grown, the nutrients and the theory behind it…why not?
I’m actually going to try this myself. I’m curious, like you, to see if anyone else has tried the Green Salt.

Oh and I found this video of a taste test!

Think you’ll try it?

Considering trying it. I checked with the ALF and they were not aware of any downsides. I need to speak to my transplant team on another matter, and will see if they are aware of any reason to stay away.

I’d be curious if you find out any information from the transplant team if you don’t mind sharing.
I won’t see my team again until October. I’ve tried to do a little more research and I really can’t see any drawbacks unless there are amounts of minerals that would interfere with meds.
I know you have a lot going on right now, I hope all goes well for you.
