189 – THE BENEFITS OF PROPER HYDRATION [PODCAST WITH DR. DANA COHEN]
“Before you do any diet regimen, any new supplement regimen, start with hydration. You have to start here.”
Dr. Dana Cohen is NYC’s leading Holistic Doctor and has been on the leading edge of integrative and functional medicine for over two decades. She practices with an emphasis on the individual, understanding that no two patients are alike, and limits her patient’s reliance on prescription medications by using diet, lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplementation.
Her recent book – Quench – explains the benefits of proper hydration and how it can dramatically affect your health, vitality, and overall quality of life. She explains the right way to hydrate and how to get the water you drink deep into your muscles, cells, and fascia (the connective tissue of your body), where it’s needed most.
It’s important for women with PCOS to be hydrated. Water is a major component of every cell, tissue, and organ. It plays an important role in almost every bodily function. Increasing your water intake will also help both insoluble and soluble fiber do their job to avoid digestive distress, which is a common symptom of PCOS.
Listen in as we discuss:
- How what you eat affects how you absorb water
- Debunk myths about “getting enough water”
- Benefits of salt for hydration
- Tips for how to drink and absorb more water
- How micro-movements throughout the day keep you hydrated
- The many ways dehydration affects your mind and body
