Although many patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) are on restricted liquid diets, it is still important to stay hydrated, and there are many ways to do so besides drinking a lot of water.
In this fun video from Gifted Life, Lauren Rowe shares some great tips to help get your whole body hydrated, which as we all know is extremely important if you have a chronic illness. Looking after areas of the body which can quickly dry out such as the skin, mouth and nose can help you to counter the effects of everyday occurrences such as weather, bugs and illnesses.
Lauren also offers alternatives for drinks that are much healthier for you, for instance, a cup of hot water and lemon rather than tea or coffee, or a frozen hydrolite block instead of Gatorade, and keeping an eye on the amount of liquid you consume by using a measured cup.
