How to Make Electrolytes
Sometimes you need emergency electrolytes to replenish lost fluids. This electrolyte recipe replenishes lost fluids from illness, exercise or too much sun. You can use it on both humans and animals.
Times when supplemental electrolytes are needed:
During sickness — fever, diarrhea, vomiting
During heavy work or exercise
During heat — heat exhaustion, sunstroke
This is not a remedy to take the place of a medical or veterinarian call, but for you to have on hand in an emergency.
