As everybody knows, our body consists mostly of water and we need water to stay alive. Drinking enough water to stay hydrated is one of the most important things we can do, but some people don’t like the taste of water or just forget to drink it. But here’s a plain and simple fact: If you’re living with a chronic disease that wears you out, you should hydrate as much as you possibly can.

Talking about water… Did you know that the lungs are the only organ of the human body that can float? Read our article with eight curious facts about the lungs to find out more.

As Lauren Rowe says in the video, “Being hydrated is really important, and it’s even more important when you’re sick.” Some diseases and treatments can make you lose a lot of liquids and dehydrate very easily. In this entertaining Gifted Life video posted on YouTube, Lauren shares some of her favorite ways to improve hydration in order to always feel fresh and refreshed.

This video contains great suggestions, such as using coconut oil, adding lemon to hot water, creating your own face scrubs and moisturizing mouthwash, and much more. Since many people with PH are on fluid restricted diets it might be best to discuss how much you can intake by your doctor. Hydrate yourself, just like Lauren does.
