View Full Version : Electrolyte Replacement Therapy
06-26-2009, 03:54 PM
Found this in Wikipedia: "An effective electrolyte replacement should include all electrolytes required by the body, including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and chloride that can be either obtained in a sports drink or a solid electrolyte capsule."
I've been very sick and think I may need to replace electrolytes. I still cannot eat, except maybe a banana. Though I haven't tried one yet.
I certainly am not going to have a sports drink. :eek:
Any suggestions on what to juice to get a good combo of electrolytes?

coconut water apparently has a huge amount and crystal salt.

Thanks! I've got two coconuts in the fridge. Maybe I could freeze the meat.

I'm trying a small amount of coconut water and sea salt now. Very tasty and refreshing. I should know soon if my stomach appreciates it or not.
Dimond, if it goes well I will try one of your drinks tonight, and for the next few days, too. Not sure about the orange juice though. For some reason I've been afraid of having orange juice, even mixed with water. Probably unfounded, but I have to follow my instincts which are telling me no solid food, and no citrus. I'll start with a very small amount of oj and see how it goes.
Thanks Pixie and Dimond. I really appreciate your suggestions. :)

I offer this for your consideration. A friend of mine thought of this all on her own. I have been doing it for a few days myself. She takes:
a 1 quart jar
puts 2/3 cup coconut water
1 tsp. magnesium (like the Natural Calm brand)
1/4 tsp pink salt
fills the rest of the jar up with water
~~~hugs to you~~~ Hope you are feeling better soon! :)

Thanks, mblessed. Good idea diluting it with water. I've got all those ingredients, except for the magnesium which may be a key component.
Thanks for the kind thoughts. I still feel awful, but sooooo much better than yesterday. :)

You're welcome. My friend who created this is now feeling very hydrated and any aches and pains she had disappeared. As far as myself, I've never enjoyed drinking water (but I do it anyway), but I very much look forward to drinking this.
I'm so glad you are feeling better than yesterday :)! Sending you much love!
