As a student at the Mayo Medical School, Dr. Eduardo Dolhun witnessed scores of people — many of them children — dying unnecessarily from dehydration while on a relief mission in Guatemala. Miles from a hospital and without enough equipment, he saw firsthand how effective Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) were and realized their potential to combat dehydration on a massive scale.
After returning to his family practice in San Francisco, he realized many of his patients had everyday needs for extreme rehydration. These varied from intense exertion to flu and fatigue. Tired of prescribing foul tasting hydration drinks or sugary sports brands, and realizing the impracticality of administering IVs, Dr. Dolhun saw a clear need for a non-prescription rehydration solution as powerful as those designed for medical emergencies, made easily accessible to all.
