Water is Liquid Life!
“The Institute of Medicine recommends that men achieve a daily fluid intake of around 3 liters (over 90 ounces) and that women take in 2.2 liters (Over 75 ounces). I attempt to drink between 60 – 90 ounces of water a day. Sometimes doing so is easier than other times. I especially drink about 50 ounces each morning, first thing in the morning before eating. I specifically drink distilled water at home, since I know that I am getting enough minerals and because I own and ozonator. When out and about, I drink Alkaline Water, like Smart Water.” – Kevy Michaels
“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” – John 4:14

How Much Water Should You Really Drink a Day?
Published on Jan 6, 2015
How much water should you be drinking a day? You should be drinking about 25%-50% of your body weight in ounces daily. It’s actually not about how much water you are getting but staying hydrated. Water is vital for your health. The biggest side effects of not getting enough water can be headaches, lack of energy, weight gain, lack of cleansing and detoxification, weakened immune response, getting the cold and flu easily, or feeling lethargic. Proper hydration is so important to your overall health. To stay properly hydrated, I have four recommendations.
First, I would recommend drinking about half of your body weight in ounces a day. I would also suggest you get more fruits and vegetables in your diet, which are full of electrolytes.
Next, I would recommend consuming all-natural sea salts in your food (Himalayan salt or Celtic salt), which helps your body stay hydrated. Lastly, I would encourage you to exercise more.
Exercise can support the process of hydration because movement increases circulation, increasing electrolyte levels into your cells.
