How long have you been fasting her?

I wouldn't add aquarium salt in a planted tank, as the plants will probably not appreciate it. Neither will most freshwater invertebrates, should you have any in the tank.

I would go ahead and feed the peas, but make sure you shell them first. After that, I would fast her again for 3 days to a week, or until she gets better.

There are some more advanced techniques you could use, but I've never had to go that far, as fasting worked for me the only time I had to deal with bloat. Some of the other experienced keepers here can fill you in when they see your post.
