Recette maison de solution de réhydratation pour la gastro : une alternative lorsque la pharmacie est fermée !

Homemade recipe for rehydration solution for gastro: an alternative when the pharmacy is closed!

Gastroenteritis can strike at any time, and staying hydrated is essential to getting through it. If you have gastro and the pharmacy is closed, it is recommended to favor commercial solutions, but here is a homemade alternative that you can prepare quickly.

Our rehydration solution recipe, inspired by Gastrolyte, is easy to whip up. Mix the following ingredients carefully:

  • 360 ml (12 oz) pure, unsweetened orange juice
  • 600 ml (20 oz) cooled boiled water
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) salt

It is crucial to emphasize that this recipe is an option to consider when commercial options are not available, for example, when the pharmacy is closed. Our video on TikTok Or on  Instagram guides you through every step of preparation.

A particularly important point to note is that young children are more vulnerable to dehydration during episodes of gastroenteritis. Their small size and inability to fully express their symptoms can make detecting dehydration more difficult. Therefore, it is crucial to carefully monitor signs of dehydration in toddlers, such as dry mouth, lack of tears when crying, and decreased activity. If in doubt, consult a healthcare professional immediately.

Keep in mind that while this recipe may be helpful in times of immediate need, it is always best to consult a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
