Feel the mercury climbing? You don’t need to stay cooped up in the A/C just to make it through summer. Thanks to homeopathy and smart-mother sports drinks that incorporate homeopathy and sound nutrition.

Symptoms of heat exposure, such as languidness, headache and flushing, respond remarkably well to the cell salt Nat sulph 6X. I like to add it to my water bottle and sip it frequently when outdoors in the heat. This actually may prevent these unpleasant symptoms from ever happening when dosed in this manner.

Forget sports drinks that promise to provide the salts and electrolytes your body needs (along with artificial dyes and high fructose corn syrup, of course). Cell salts are the real deal!

If muscle cramping while exercising in the heat is a problem for you, add Mag phos 6X to your water along with the Nat sulph 6X.

For cases of prolonged strenuous activity in high temps, I like to up the ante. Try making my homemade replacement for Gatorade.peter's sport drink; homeopathy and smart nutrition

My Son Peter’s Homeopathic Electrolyte Healthy Sports Drink

• 16 pills of Bioplasma *
• 16 pills of Nat sulph 6X *
• 1/4 cup acidophilus bifidus yogurt or whole kefir
• 1/4-1/2 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
• Maple syrup or raw honey to taste (not too sweet)
• 1 teaspoon Celtic salt
• 1/2 cup coconut milk (optional)

* Easily found at your local health food store or online at these links


Combine all ingredients in a gallon container and fill to the top with ice water. Shake well.

This is the concoction I make certain my sons take with them every day when working outside as a landscaper. We all know how hot a job that can be, but this electrolyte-packed drink keeps them comfortable and safe in the heat.

Happy summer!


I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

    I absolutely need to make this! It is so hard to convince our extended family that just because Gatorade and Poweraide and such make these wonderful claims on their labels, does not mean I want my children drinking that glorified sugar water. Here is a question. Do you think whey would work in place of the kefir or yogurt? I usually have at least a gallon of whey after making mozzarella and have been trying to figure out ways to use it, thinking this may be a way unless there is not enough probiotics? Just wondering. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Absolutely! Way to go whey!

  2. Liz says:

    Yum! I think I needed this yesterday! Would you add anything different to deal with high humidity vs dry heat? Thanks!

  3. Donna says:

    Wow Joette, thats sounds really great! So many people think Gatoraide replenishes electrolytes but its nothing but an advertising campaign for a toxic chemical cocktail. We can always depend on you to comeup with the healthy alternatives. Thanks for being on point, you are someone who truly cares about others. And that’s rare these days!

  4. Courtney says:

    What a great idea! I am going to bring this with me to births to help women keep up their energy. Thanks for sharing, Joette!

  5. Lorna says:

    Thank you, Joette!

  6. Would this work if you are dehydrated from illness as well?

  7. Suzanne says:

    Why not just org coconut water?

    1. ‘also a good choice! particularly if the coconut water is fresh. then, i’d consider adding the homeopathic cell salt for extra measure.

  8. Dee says:

    Would is be safe for pregnant women to drink?

    1. there’s nothing in this recipe that would case me any pause when used for pregnancy.

  9. Danielle says:

    This sounds fantastic. I can’t wait to try it in our Arizona heat. Thanks for sharing this!

  10. Beth L. says:

    I love this recipe but it does take a little getting used to!

  11. Willom says:

    How long will this keep in the fridge, or is this only viable for the day it’s made?

  12. Mine has lasted in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, but, i imagine it could last longer.
