Staying hydrated is very important while you're receiving breast cancer treatment. Experts say that drinking 64 to 96 ounces of water a day will keep you hydrated. That sounds like a lot, but it's only about 8 to 12 glasses (8 ounces each) of water. And while this number has been questioned by some researchers, most doctors agree that most people don't drink enough water. So aim for 8 glasses. If you're having side effects such as diarrhea or vomiting because of your treatment, you may need to drink more than this. Talk to your doctor about how much water makes sense for you.
You shouldn't rely on feeling thirsty to tell if you're getting enough water. You may not feel thirsty until you've already lost quite a bit of water, so try to drink throughout the day. An easy way to tell if you're getting enough water is to look at the color of your urine. If your urine is pale to clear, you're probably getting enough water. If it's dark, it's more concentrated, which means you are becoming de...
Can ceiling fans cause dehydration in your eyes leading to headaches or migrains? my girlfriend likes to sleep cold with the airconditioner set low and the ceiling fan turned on high. This causes me to wake up with what i can only describe as dehydration headaches similar to a sinus infection headache.

Some people report that the inside of their nostrils gets dry and sometimes even bleeds a bit from the dryness. So, surface dehydration is possible. "Regular" dehydration from air conditioning and/or fans is unlikely unless you're already bordering on dehydration.
Sometimes simple answers are staring us right in the face and we still can’t see them. Would you change your diet if doing so would create a centered, calm, happy, well-rested, sleep-through-the-night kind of person? An important job Of course you would. We are given so many choices when feeding our bodies, and like most things, when overloaded with options, it’s difficult to make the right choice. After recently attending a conference on nutrition, while walking away, I thought, “If I changed one thing from the knowledge I gained today, what would it be?” The conference reminded me that I have a very important job ¾ the job of caring for my body. Nutritionally speaking, what I choose to eat will make me feel either good or bad. I will be tempted. It won’t always be easy, but with persistence, making better food choices becomes natural. I understand how my body is very special and that the food I choose to go inside my body is incredibly imp...
