Drink Your Water for Better Health

By Donna Stark

There are so many simple things you can do to improve your overall health and wellness, but none are as easy as drinking more water. You probably already know how important it is to drink the recommended amount of water each day if you want your body to function at its best, but do you really understand what that means? Here are a few very specific reasons why you should add more water to your diet.

Headache Relief

If you are like others who rely on and carry a bottle of pain relievers in their bag every day, you may want to consider doing something else. Dehydration is a huge contributing factor to headache pain, and unfortunately, so many of us are walking around without even realizing it. You can still carry that bottle of pills around with you, but if you take the steps to become properly hydrated, you may end up not needing them anymore.

Back Pain Relief

Did you know water is stored in the spinal discs that are located in your spine? And that when you are dehydrated, they are one of the first places your body goes to for water? It's easy to see the link between dehydration and back pain now, isn't it? When the discs are deprived of water, the shock absorption they provide becomes compromised, and that is when your back will start hurting. So, just like your headache pain can be relieved with adequate amounts of water, so can your back!

Optimal Brain Health

Want to sharpen your cognitive skills? Drink your water! Your brain cells depend on proper hydration to function optimally. When you are dehydrated, the delicate balance in which they operate will be disrupted. They will lose efficiency, which means you will have more difficulty staying focused, paying attention, recalling memories, and learning new things.

The Importance of Adequate Hydration

The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic know how important it is to drink the recommended amount of water each and every day, and they would love to talk about the best ways to do so with you and your loved ones. Make it a point to start drinking more, and then head on in to The Joint Chiropractic for some additional suggestions and tips. You won't regret it, and it's so easy to do. Just choose from their many locations across the country and walk right in. That's right! Appointments aren't even necessary, so this visit can be easy to make with everyone's schedule. Just don't forget to bring a bottle of water for the trip!
