Remaining hydrated is critical to your overall health. Every cell in your body needs water in order to function properly. If the body doesn’t get the amount of water it needs, it leads to dehydration. In the early stages, you may be able to correct mild to moderate dehydration with home treatment measures. It is important to control fluid losses and replace lost fluids.

1. Water: first and the foremost thing to do is drink water. Plan on drinking one eight ounce bottle of water or more per hour of exercise. If you're not exercising, try to drink about 8 glasses of water, tea, or other fluids in a 24-hour period.
2. Bland Foods: f you've experienced dehydration, stick to foods that are easily digested for the next 24 hours, because stomach cramps are a symptom of dehydration and can recur. Try rice, bananas, potatoes and flavored gelatins.
3. Watery fruits: They have great water content and are especially good for restoring potassium that has vanished with dehydration. You can also try watery fruits such as cantaloupe, watermelon and strawberries. Watery vegetables such as cucumbers are good, too.
4. Salt: If you're experiencing symptoms of mild dehydration or heat injury, or you're just plain sweating a lot, make sure you replace your salt. Don't just chug salt straight from the box, however. Try eating pretzels, salted crackers or salty nuts.
5. Ice: Suck on ice or rub it on your body when you're overheated. This will help cool you down and prevent excess evaporation, which may lead to dehydration. Eating a popsicle is a great way to restore water to your body as well. It's an easy way to get fluids into kids, too.
