Re: A health question

I teach natural health seminars at doctors offices (& other places) and lack of water is a huge problem in this country. Rule of thumb is to take your body weight and divide it in half and that is the number of ounces you should drink daily. If you drink caffiene then you have to add to that.

The first 2 weeks you will spend more time in the bathroom. Then your bladder will re-adjust and you will be fine.

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is the last on the list to get hydrated when you drink water. This is especially bad for tanners. If you can teach your tanners to drink enough water they will tan easier and better.

A 2% drop in body water can result in fuzzy thinking, trouble concentrating on a computer screen or printed page, short term memory challenges, slower metabolism and more. It can also contribute to joint and back pain and headaches.

Water is important, essential to our bodies. So is fiber but that's another whole subject.

Re: A health question

A 220 llb. person would have to drink almost 14 cups of water per day? Doesn't seem right, in fact wasn't there a major artcileout this past summer regarding this topic?

Re: A health question

Drinking water doesn't speed up your metabolism. If you drink extremely cold water, you will burn more calories as your body has to work to warm up the water to send it through your digestive tract. It is not a significant amount though, like maybe an extra 5 calories per cup or something. Work out if you want to speed up your metabolism.

Re: A health question

Ice cold drinks can slow down the digestive process, think of it as putting ice on a muscle. The muscle stiffens and does not function as well. Warm or room temperature water, juice, or decaf tea will encourage proper digestion. Drink warm or hot liquids with your meal.

Re: A health question

I think I might be pregnant, because this month Iím 3 days late and Iíve got no signs of starting my period, normally I get cramps, but I havenít this time, Iíve never missed a period before. I have consulted to my doctor and he prescribed some vitamins. So itís ok to start taking them now? And why exactly do you have to take special vitamins and such?
