Are you struggling with fatigue? Headaches? Muscle weakness or cramps? There are so many negative symptoms related to potential signs you have an electrolyte imbalance. Read on for some signs you have an electrolyte imbalance!

Signs You Have an Electrolyte Imbalance⁠

  • Chronic fatigue⁠
  • Slow or irregular heartbeat⁠
  • Headaches⁠
  • Dehydration ⁠
  • Muscle weakness and cramps⁠
  • Tingling in the feet and fingers⁠
  • Brain fog ⁠
  • High blood pressure⁠
  • Excessive sweating ⁠

What are electrolytes?⁠

⁠Yes, electrolytes come in sports drinks and Pedialyte, but they are actually minerals—sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, calcium, phosphate, bicarbonate—that dissolve in the body’s fluids, creating electrically charged ions. Some are positive, some are negative, and they are essential to helping the body work properly. ⁠

They are literally the ‘spark’ our body needs to function well… and when electrolytes are out of balance, there can be negative health consequences. ⁠

What to do about electrolyte imbalance

To avoid electrolyte imbalances, you need to get enough minerals from food and drinks. ⁠Then, you’ll experience fewer signs you have an electrolyte imbalance.

One simple solution is paying more attention to what you consume and focusing on adding more electrolyte-rich calories to your diet. ⁠

We typically start with the macro minerals since they make up about 80-90% of the minerals in our body and are super important to electrolyte balance. ⁠

Here are the macro minerals are:⁠

🔹Calcium⁠
🔹Magnesium⁠
🔹Sodium⁠
🔹Potassium⁠

Eating nutritious food to help balance and regulate minerals is by far the most safe and effective method toward finding balance.⁠ 



In fact, we often give a list of top electrolyte sources to our clients. We tell them to print out the list, hang it on their fridge, and use it every week when planning their grocery shopping. ⁠
