Dehydration is a common occurrence when you are exposed to excessive amounts of sun, engage in strenuous exercise, sweat more than usual, or intake an insufficient amount of fluids/liquid. It can be dangerous to both the body, and mental state. It is most simply described as a condition when you are losing more fluids than you are taking in.
Dizziness, fatigue, headaches, and confusion are often tell-tale signs of dehydration and should prompt you to be seen by a medical professional. Most of the time, dehydration can be sectioned into 3 stages: mild, moderate, and severe. Mild and moderate dehydration can usually be easily reversed and rebalanced with caution and lots of fluids.
It is often assumed that when dehydration occurs, drinking water will reverse symptoms and bring the body back to it’s normal resting state. Unfortunately, when fluids are lost, our bodies suffer from more than just a lack of H2O. More than likely, there is also a loss of electrolytes, which is the chemical that regulates our muscle/nerve function while balancing our blood acidity.
