I stopped having indigestion, acid reflux and the aggravation of a hiatal hernia after an old farmer told me to drink two glasses of water. I was not a water drinker so it initially gagged me but I got them down and that was the last time I had any sign of such things after 20+ years of dealing with it every day unless I simply didn't eat anything. Hence, my fascination with and exploration of dehydration. Two glasses of water. It hasn't failed anyone I've ever told.
I dehyrated with the Covid. A lady told us to use Grapefruit juice. About 1 cup every 2 hours. It worked when nothing else would.
Balance is the key to hydration. I learned the hard way. Calcium doesn't go into the cells without magnesium, magnesium helps the body with sugar and homones. Lots of minerals make up the hydration balance and if one is out of balance then it doesn't work properly.
Too much sugar and you pee a lot while the body dumps sugar..... Not enough salt or magnesium and the water doesn't stay in place, too much salt and the water gets stuck and you swell up. Not enough potassium and you feel dizzy, then there are the trace minerals... get them out of balance and you don't feel well.
Stress causes the body to take your resources and make cortisol so you can run from the bear, then you feel drained. It can be a party or vacation that causes stress signals to drain you.
Watermelon for dehydration. I just did a liver cleanse with a lot of salt water and became almost completely dehydrated. I began drinking water and it poured through me. Then I ate a green apple and it continued. Then I ate watermelon and now I'm just beginning to retain and hold the water back in. WATERMELON WORKS!! :o)
Hi, would you make the work of this amazing humanitarian doctor available under dehydration. I see not mention of the Water Cure in this area and it needs to be. His name is Dr. F. Batmaghelidj, he has passed but not his web site, watercure.com. Thanks!
Asparagus will help water absorption.
I agree with the previous post. Coconut water seems to be more rapidly absorbed by the cells.
Coconut water for dehydration!!! I was suffering dizzy spells from jet leg and tried it and felt almost immediate relief!!! Amazing!!!
Hello, Put 1/4 teaspoon of either sea salt, Himalayan sat or Celtic salt in a quart of water... Drink 2 or more quarts a day... These salts are the only kind to consume... Regular table salt is heated to 1200 degrees and they loose 80 minerals and trace elments... These are minerals that are necessary to your overall health.. You will not hold water taking this kind of salt... You will feel the difference after drinking just one glass of this water.. It will optimize your health and you will no longer be dehydrated...
Best of health...
