DIY Electrolyte Drink: Natural Rehydration for Colds, Flu, Food Poisoning, & Physical Exertion 🧂🍯🍋

Also, a Sweat Rate Test Below! 🥵

What Exactly is an Electrolyte?
An electrolyte is a mineral that carries a charge when dissolved is a fluid such as water or blood. When you ingest food or beverage, it is broken down into smaller parts. Some are broken into neutral atoms or molecules, and some are broken into charged atoms or molecules. If they have a charge, they are called ions, or electrolytes.
The electrolytes of the body are:
Sodium (Na+)
Potassium (K+)
Calcium (Ca2+)
Bicarbonate (HCO3-)
Magnesium (Mg2+)
Chloride (Cl-)
Phosphate (PO4 3-)
The human body is a bioelectric machine, and is capable of producing energy equivalent to a 100 watts light bulb. Electric currents in the body are used by different functions in the body such as conducting nerve impulses, controlling metabolism, and regulating tissue and organ function. Electrolyte balance is crucial for normal human functioning and helps maintain fluid levels in cells.

How Much Sweat is Too Much Sweat?!
During exercise, the average person sweats between 0.8 to 1.4 liters per hour, which is the equivalent of one to three pounds of body weight. You can determine the specific rate at which you sweat by performing the following test:
Sweat Rate Test
Just before a one-hour run at race pace or a high-intensity workout, weigh yourself without any clothes on
During that workout, track how much water you drink in ounces
Immediately after your one-hour workout, strip down, wipe yourself down to remove excess sweat from your skin, and weigh yourself again
Subtract your post-run weight from your pre-run weight. Convert that number to ounces
Take that number and add to it the amount in ounces that you drank during your workout (if you lost one pound and consumed 16 oz. of water, then your hourly fluid loss would be 32 oz)
The amount of fluid that you should be consuming every 15 minutes during a high-intensity workout or run lasting one hour or longer can be found by dividing your hourly fluid loss by 4.
Since temperature differences will impact your sweat rate, retest that rate later in the summer. Consider retesting your sweat rate as your fitness level improves, as this will also affect that rate.
The average sweat rate is 17 oz. per hour for a healthy individual. Consult a doctor if you perform the sweat rate test and observe that your sweat rate is notably more or less than this

😴😴Sleep is a vital, often neglected, component of every person's overall health and well-being. Sleep is important because it enables the body to repair and be fit and ready for another day. Getting adequate rest may also help prevent excess weight gain, heart disease, and increased illness duration.

Can PT Help Insomnia? 😴😴

Did you know that over two-thirds of Americans have reported having trouble sleeping at night? Treating sleep disorders with physical therapy can provide a valuable alternative to traditional treatment options.

Many of our physical therapy patients come to us with physical pain or limitations that can also impact their quality of life…including their ability to rest.

Conducting an assessment or a screening to determine a patient’s sleep deficits provides an overview of their sleep profile and habits before going to sleep and after waking. Known as sleep hygiene, it is characterized by the National Sleep Foundation as “...a variety of different practices and habits that are necessary to have good nighttime sleep quality and full daytime alertness.”

Conducted by a physical therapist, assessment is part of understanding how physical conditions, body positioning and limitations to mobility can affect sleep. Additional factors may include a discussion on ergonomics: the type of bed and mattress used, number of pillows, body positioning for sleeping, etc.

Why is Sleep SO Important??!! 😴😴
Studies show getting quality sleep on a regular basis can help improve all sorts of issues, from your blood sugar to your workouts.
Here's why you should give your body the ZZZs it needs.
Sharper Brain
Mood Boost
Healthier Heart
Athletic Achievement
Steadier Blood Sugar
Germ Fighting
Weight Control

Why is Sleeping in Good for Your Brain? 😴😴
Sleep is important to a number of brain functions, including how nerve cells (neurons) communicate with each other. In fact, your brain and body stay remarkably active while you sleep. Recent findings suggest that sleep plays a housekeeping role that removes toxins in your brain that build up while you are awake.

Are Naps Good For You? 😴😴
In a recent study, researchers say napping two or three times a week might be good for your heart health. Experts say daily napping may be a sign of inadequate nighttime sleep or an underlying health problem. One expert says naps should be shorter than 30 minutes or longer than 90 minutes.

Too Much of a Good Thing? 😴😴
Sleep needs vary, but on average, regularly sleeping more than 9 hours a night may do more harm than good. Research found that people who slept longer had more calcium buildup in their heart arteries and less flexible leg arteries, too. Your best bet is to shoot for 7-8 hours of slumber each night for peak health benefits.

How to Get to Sleep in Under 2 minutes! 😴😴

The Military Method
Relax your entire face, including the muscles inside your mouth.
Drop your shoulders to release the tension and let your hands drop to the side of your body.
Exhale, relaxing your chest.
Relax your legs, thighs, and calves.
Clear your mind for 10 seconds by imagining a relaxing scene.
If this doesn’t work, try saying the words “don’t think” over and over for 10 seconds.
Within 10 seconds, you should fall asleep!

#WellnessWednesday 💛 Strengthening & stretching the hamstring muscles(back of thigh) can prevent them from becoming too tight & provide extra support for the back & pelvis. Keeping the hamstrings loose will lower the chance of straining or tearing the muscle fibers during strenuous physical activities, such as running, hiking, playing sports or even sitting all day.

What is a Hamstring?
The hamstring refers to the group of 3 muscles that run along the back of your thigh, from your hip to just below your knee. When contracted, the hamstrings job is to bend your knee.

Overworked Hamstrings
When tight hamstrings are forced to work overtime, or after sitting for a length of time, they are at risk for injury.
A muscle strain is the stretching or tearing of muscle fibers. Strains range from mild (the tearing of some fibers) to severe (a tear that rips all the way through the muscle fibers, and sounds like a pop when it occurs). Strained hamstrings can leave you sidelined with pain.

The best way to protect your hamstrings is to keep all of your leg muscles healthy and working together, including the glutes and the quadriceps (the muscle group at the front of each thigh).
We recommend getting an assessment from a physical therapist who can evaluate your muscles and joint health and develop a workout program tailored to your needs.

During a Free Assessment the PT will look for any deficits and examine the joints where the hamstrings attach — the knee and hip — as well as the lower back and ankle, to see if things are moving as they should. If there's stiffness or weakness in one area, you may be taxing another.
