yep, heat sickness can be from mineral depletion. Sweating out your electrolytes with out replacing them. Salty snacks, a multivitamin, and some sports drink mix could potentially help. you could drown yourself in water, and still cramp up. I work for a construction company based out of Seattle, and when the crew got down here to work at the beginning of summer, they didn't know what hit them. They were dropping like flies.
