Fred for years, long before my dx of cidp I have noticed and been advised my by naturopathic physican to keep my electorlyes up. She recommds celtic or himylan salt in water, as well as a banana a day and magnessium supplementation.
Since I overdid over the past few days, today I am also adding Gatorade. I don’t like the taste of gatorade, but when my body needs it, I find it quite pleasent. the same goes with the salty water.
Adequate hydration and electrolyte balance is seential to the sodium postassium pump necessary for muscle function.

Hope this helps,
