We have been using this product for years due to POTS. It’s a game-changer.
I was pretty much bed ridden from POTS when I was dx in 2017, I followed the advise of my fellow POTsies of drinking Gatorade and eating salty processed foods, all it did was make me gain a bunch of weight and I still felt like **** on top of now being fat. Occasionally I'd see someone online come in and say you can kick POTS butt and put it into remission and getting your life back is possible and they would be shut down by nay sayers. I finally sent one a PM out of desperation and found a whole bunch of new friends! With Normalyte Pure (I HATE the flavor of the sweetener in the flavored packets) I was a convert from the first packet, I started off needing 4 packets a day but I was able to get up and out of bed, I could do things around the house and start a physical/cardiac rehab program. I got my life back! It was a long road, I still have flares on occasion but following the advice from those recovered I've done well. The most important thing though is to get moving! No laying down during the day, you can sit but feet on the floor, get up and moving every hour for a few minutes at least. Start with baby steps if needed, bed ridden? Start with sitting. You will feel like **** but push through and drink your Normalyte! Life will get better:)
This is easily the best oral rehydration packet I've tried for my POTS/nOH, especially when the GI symptoms are flaring. It's an absolute necessity for me to keep this around, otherwise I'd be getting IV hydration much more often. Like many dysautonomia patients, I have a handful of other issues that make my digestive system extra picky, and this ingredient list works well for me, I keep coming back to it. Sometimes I might have 1-2 packets per day, other times less frequently, but I never want to run out.
I actually kind of like the taste, and find it soothing.
NormaLyte PURE is my go-to rescue and daily maintenance treatment for dysautonomia. It honestly works better for me than IV's and is great to use in conjunction with my prescription meds. With all of my allergies and sensitivities, the PURE formula is perfect for me. Just wish my insurance would agree to pay for it.
