Natural Electrolytes for Hydration

by Dr. Kristen Halland @BalanceDoc

1. Bone Broth for Hydration

Place one chicken carcass (not too clean! Leave some skin and a little meat) into a large dutch oven or stovetop pot. Fill with water almost to the top. Add a generous splash (1/4 c) of Apple Cider Vinegar.

Bring to a boil and cover. Simmer for 6-8 hours minimum and 24 hours maximum.

Note: you could make this in a crockpot on high for 6-8 hours too.

Cool broth. Strain and remove carcass. Or you can use cooking “mesh socks” from the store to place everything in for easier clean up.

Drink as a broth with pepper and salt (pink Himalayan, sea salt, or Redmond’s real salt only).

You can add chopped carrot, celery, and chicken meat to make soup as a more palatable option! No noodles though!

2. Coconut Water (the can or bottle cannot have more than one ingredient! Recommended brand to order from Amazon or get from local ethnic grocery store: Chaokoh).

3. Sports Recovery drink for muscles:

¼ cup of coconut water + generous pinch of salt (0.2 tsp) + 1 liter of water.

Need to use Redmond’s Real Salt or an UNPROCESSED Sea Salt only. 

4. Fruit-based beverage

¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice

1.5 cups water

1/8 teaspoon of Redmond’s Real Salt or unprocessed Sea Salt

1 tbsp. or less of RAW honey to taste

Note:

If you're looking for hydration strategies for keto diet, please work with an integrative nutritionist or functional medicine provider for your unique needs. Thank you for reading!
