This was in our local newspaper and I cut it out so I could share it. Headache, vomiting, swollen ankles and feet, fatigue far out of the normal fatigue felt, and disorientation are some of the signs of hyponatremia. Sports drinks with sodium in them can prevent it. You can make your own replacement fluid at a fraction of the cost at the stores, but make sure you mix up enough for the whole exercise or practice session.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 8 ounces water (almost)


  1. Almost fill and 8-ounce bottle with the water.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to it.
  3. Mix well.
  4. If you will need more than the 8-ounces, make it now in a larger bottle or do two bottles---MAKE ENOUGH FOR THE WHOLE SESSION.
