How much water should you drink

Along with food, water is essential for living a healthy life, and without it, we could not survive. Making up about 60 percent of our body weight, water does a number of things to keep our bodies strong and healthy. In addition to quenching thirst, water helps control body temperature, flush toxins, and retain moisture. It also keeps our skin looking young and healthy, helps maintain a healthy body weight, and much more. Because we need water to survive, it’s so important that we drink enough every day.
But how much is enough? We don’t all require the same amount of water. As each of our bodies is different, each of us requires a different amount of water depending on four factors: body weight, dehydration, how much is lost, and activity level.

Your daily water requirement can be calculated with a simple equation based on your body weight. The amount of water you need also has to do with your level of dehydration and how much water your body loses daily.
Making sure you're drinking enough water every day can be as simple as eating water-heavy fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers, carrying around a water bottle, or drinking a glass first thing in the morning and with every meal.
Take a look at our slideshow to see how much water you should be drinking every day.

Why are we suffering from reflux...what is the cause....interesting read

This is great information!


SEP 23, 2013 | Vol 5

Acid reflux is a big problem.

44% of Americans have heartburn at least once a month. 25 to 35% have reflux. It causes tremendous problems, and nobody is asking why. Why are we suffering from reflux? What is the cause? Is it something we are doing or something we are eating? Is there some other factor that's driving this epidemic?

Many things can trigger acid reflux:
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Bacteria in your gut
  • Food sensitivities

You don't need to live with this condition and there are solutions other than taking acid-blocking drugs to treat your symptoms.

Watch this week's edition of House Call with Dr. Hyman to learn what things may be causing your acid reflux and how you can fix it at the source.

Wishing you health and happiness,
