    There is an alternative to common salt called sodium-free salt. It is actually potassium chloride and can be poured over meals, it tastes similar.

    I am eating almost salt-free, but when I eat food that I like "salty" I use this salt without sodium. It is not recommended to abuse it either, high amounts of potassium are bad for the kidneys. However, I have read on some occasion that for Meniere it is recommended to lower the sodium intake and increase the potassium intake. So I think, in moderation, that this sodium-free salt may be good for relieving symptoms.

    The other day I found a type of salt that is a mixture of common salt (39%) with potassium chloride (61%). I still eat many without any salt, but now I use this mixture since I can add 2g and sodium would only take 780mg.
