Dehydration is a very common condition that happens to majority of us in summers. As summers are approaching closer, people have started getting affected by it very fast. Dehydration is a condition where your body loses liquids from your body and it is not able to regain it faster. To cure this condition, people often visit doctors and spend a lot of money on the problem where there is no need for visiting a doctor.
According to our expert, Dr. Pramod Bajpayee, Naturopathic and Ayurvedic doctor at SPPC, has brought you 6 basic remedies to cure dehydration at your homes.
- Coconut Water
Coconut water is the world’s only known highest endospermic fruit. This means that this has a lot of nutrients present in it, like sodium and potassium. These nutrients therefore help you regain all the energy that you have lost in getting dehydrated.
Serving: 4-5 per day.

3.Mosami (Citrus limetta) Juice
