I feel there are a lot of us here at the age of needing to watch our health a bit more , so I'm toss an idea for those that need Prescribed Diuretics for CHF or Diabetes or Lymphoma , etc.
Losing a lot of water quickly causes a depletion of Electrolytes in the body. These carry sodium and such to our Muscles to aid in contracting and releasing . A sudden loss without the proper RE-Hydration , can cause some severe Muscle Cramps. The sudden contraction of the muscles .
Let's say you are out this Summer enjoying a day with the Relatives and the heat is up there... you get busy playing with the Kids or doing something to the Q , and a Major Cramp. Neither Beer , Water , Milk or anything else will help, and cooling down a bit takes a lot of time.
I used to get Quinine Tablets from my Dr. -knowing this help with the cramps during Malaria , He said it would help my Electrolyte loss quicker than any other way (in 20-30min. for me) . However , these are no longer Prescribed , at all... remedy
You drinkers will like this... TONIC WATER ... it has Quinine in it and if you think you'll be doing a lot of exercise and getting hot, get a few bottles and drink on then during the day (between the refreshments) or drink something that includes Tonic Water (two birds with one stone). Still have helpers, so you can enjoy the Kids more , and enjoy your Parties.
Hope this comes to help you that suffer the pain of cramps . Sorry , but it won't help those regular things Gals .
Have fun this Summer ans as always. . .
