It's Hot in the City! Ways to Prevent Dehydration

Well it’s hot as hell outside, and pretty much miserable.  Summer is in full swing! I can’t help but wonder how people ever managed to live without air conditioning.  With temperatures well over 100 this week, make sure you’re drinking a ton of water, even if you’re not outside a lot.  It’s this time of year that we have to really be careful about not overdoing it.  In addition to water try some zucchini, (it’s great for the adrenal glands, which help keep you hydrated), and make sure you’re resting as much as possible.  Also, don't forget to salt your veggies and meats with a good sea salt, this will go a long way in keeping you hydrated as well. Signs of dehydration:

  • Dry sticky mouth, thirst
  • Lack of energy or fussiness (usually in children)
  • Hunger
  • Dark yellow urine
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid heart rate for no good reason
  • Symptoms are worse first thing in the morning but get better throughout the day

How much water should you drink?  At least 1L per 50lbs of body weight and try to make it a good spring water.  If you have any questions about which water is best I wrote a post it about a few weeks ago.  Hope this helps keep you safe and healthy during the brutal end to summer.
