# 2 - HOW TO BEGIN "SCD" > * ELECTROLYTE DRINK (REPLACEMENT FOR POWERADE & GATORADE)


This is a drink for dehydration or when electrolytes are imbalanced.  It can be kept in refrigerator for 24 hrs, and then a new batch should be made.

 

This drink should be used instead of Powerade, Gatorade, or other sugary commercial drinks.

 

1 Qt. boiled water (*do not use distilled water)

2 T. honey

¼ t. salt

¼ t. baking soda

 

Optional:  Lime, lemon, or orange juice to taste

 

* (Do not use 'distilled' water, unless for short term detoxification process, because it can lead to de-mineralization with long term use due to its acidic properties.)
