Do you feel crazy thirsty during pregnancy, but also feel like you’re peeing everything out that you just drank?! This rehydration drink is for you! Whether you’re in the early stages of pregnancy and building up your blood, in labor and need a replenishment, or breastfeeding and just trying to keep up with the liquid demands of your little one, you’ll LOVE this drink!
So easy to make at home! Use lemon juice, either fresh squeezed or from a bottle, raw honey or maple syrup or stevia, a little sea salt and baking soda, and add to water to taste! SO good!
As we transition to a low-carb diet and our inflammation reduces, our electrolytes can be out of whack for a bit. This drink, made with stevia or without sweetener, is a great way to balance your electrolytes and feel great as you start the keto or carnivore diet!
* Be sure to talk to your care provider about your unique hydration needs.
One of the best ways you can reduce your toxic load is to use a water filter! We use a Berkey Water Filter and LOVE it! I even take it when we travel! Shown in the video is the 3.5 gallon Berkey on a stand, with a stainless steel spigot. I use both charcoal and fluoride filters in mine (and no, my kids don’t have cavities!).

Labor-Aid Rehydration Drink
Using a 4-cup container, combine lemon juice, sweetener, and sea salt.
Stir in baking soda, stirring down as it bubbles up.
Store this concentrate in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Dilute as desired for consumption; I like about 1/2 cup per 4 cups of filtered water.
