Hydration: Key Tips

Drinking water has benefits, such as maintaining the temperature of the body, removing waste, and lubricating joints. Coach Hamad Shirazi, Holistic Health Practitioner, explains the body is primarily composed of water, and he recommends paying attention to the quality and the quantity of water. He suggests asking your health care providers access to clean filter water. Regarding quantity, he says a great place to start is drinking one-half of your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, if you weigh 100 pounds, you should drink at least 50 ounces of water.
