Natural Remedies for Hyponatremia

Hyponatremia is a medical condition in which the body's sodium levels are too low. Natural remedies for hyponatremia include adequate salt intake and appropriate hydration. Severe hyponatremia is a medical emergency and can cause stroke, heart attack, seizures, coma and even death.

Causes of Hyponatremia

The body needs sodium. Sodium helps to keep the water balanced in the cells and is needed for many body functions. It is critical for life. Interestingly, too much water intake or too little water intake can each cause hyponatremia.

Low sodium can result from acute conditions like food poisoning or a stomach virus. If a person is purging excessively through vomiting and/or diarrhea, he will end up dehydrated and often low in sodium and other critical electrolytes as well.
