Hello.... Fainting could be due to hypoglycemia or low blood pressure orthostatic hypo tension.., first you must take take her to general physician to know the cause for this... Simply taking home medicine on her own will not work... Tell her to drink lot of water.. Too much salt intake is not necessary because excess salt will be passed in urine.
