We can get overwhelmed by information and advice about water. How much to drink? Filtered or bottled? Some advice says drink half your body weight per day in ounces. Does this fit everyone? Absolutely not. We have clients at RockSalt Spa who use specific types of filtering machines to create the purest water. They may not require as much. Other clients need more because they’re training for a triathlon or marathon. During and after vigorous exorcise, everyone needs more water.
The best rule of thumb is to listen and know your own body! How much water you need also requires observing dry skin, dry lips, headaches; all can signal dehydration. What kind or quality is the most discussed topic around water. That requires more in-depth analysis. However, the most fascinating data I’ve discovered on the subject came from hearing Dr. Emoto speak about water molecules, over a decade ago in Denver.

Whether you add electrolytes, lemon, or fruit to your water, make sure you’re listening to your body and giving it what it needs!
