Home Remedies For Dehydration
Does your thirst feel endless? Do you feel dissatisfied even after having several glasses of water?
If you answered yes to these questions, there is a good chance that you are dehydrated.
When your body loses more water than it absorbs, it can cause dehydration.
Although dehydration is quite common among all age groups, it can have more dangerous consequences for children and older adults.
However, your concerns may be relegated because some of the best home remedies to combat dehydration are listed here.
Increase your water consumption
The first step to treating dehydration is to increase your water intake.
Water is usually enough to rehydrate adults. You should drink enough water even if you are not very thirsty.
Drink small amounts of water and clear liquids throughout the day.
Drink drinks that contain carbohydrates or electrolytes.
Suck palettes made of juices and sports drinks.
Suck on freezing bottled water or pieces of ice at frequent intervals.
According to the Institute of Medicine, healthy adult men who live in a temperate climate need an adequate intake of approximately 13 cups (3 liters) of drinks in a day.
Healthy adult women need approximately 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total drinks per day.
Green tea is rich in antioxidants. It also contains minerals such as potassium and magnesium that can prevent dehydration.
And, contrary to popular belief that tea may be dehydrating due to its caffeine content, the water in green tea more than compensates for the fluids lost in dehydration.
1 teaspoon green tea leaves
1 cup of water
What you have to do
Soak the green tea leaves in a cup of hot water for 5 to 10 minutes.
Strain and consume the tea before it cools.
You can also add honey to flavor it.
How often should you do this?
You should drink green tea at least three times a day.
Avoid giving your babies green tea as a treatment for dehydration, since it is known that the caffeine in it artificially increases the heart rate of babies.
Yogurt is an effective remedy for dehydration due to diarrhea or vomiting.
It is a good source of electrolytes. In addition, it is soothing to the stomach and easy to digest.
Eat a cup of plain yogurt several times a day. You can also add a bit of cottage cheese.
Another option is to eat simple boiled rice with yogurt and a little salt.
