    Dr. Cheney's Home brew contains no sugar and is another viable blood volume enhancer for people with ME/CFS, POTS and/or orthostatic intolerance
    • 1 cup filtered or spring water
    • 1/8 teaspoon of Sea Salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon of “No Salt” salt substitute (potassium).
    • Add lime juice or an herbal teabag as well as stevia for taste (or something to give it flavor without altering the electrolyte balance: peppermint, peach, raspberry zinger, etc.)
    You can add 1 cup of Seltzer Water in there too, however, if you do, you need to double the amounts of Sea Salt & “No Salt” as has been done in the recipe below.

    Cheney recommends four to eight glasses Gookinaid or Home Brew a day.
