NH365 112: Dehydration – The truth about drinking water and avoiding disease
(NaturalHealth365) Dehydration is one of the most overlooked health issues facing people today. Dry mouth, sunken eyes, and even irritability are classic signs of dehydration. But, in many cases, what makes this situation even more complicated is that too many people don’t even feel thirsty – to sound the alarm!
Unfortunately, Western medicine rarely connects the dots when it comes to dehydration and other health problems like, chronic fatigue, brain fog or poor digestion. But, there is some great news for all of us.
WARNING: Do NOT ignore the signs of dehydration
According to our special guest Gina Bria, “proper hydration is crucial to optimal health – and optimal performance.” Yet, poor dietary choices, environmental factors, medications and, even, an overdependence on water – as the only source of hydration – can make it difficult to be properly hydrated.
Today, on the NaturalHealth365 Podcast, we’ll discuss the surprising truth about ‘drinking 8 glasses of water per day.’ Is it really that good for us? What the common apple has to do with intelligent hydration strategies plus much more!
