Meeting Your Daily Fluid Needs

302302_9926

Ever notice how lifeless a house plant looks when you forget to water it? Just a little water and it seems to perk back up. Water is just as essential for our bodies because it is in every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. That’s why getting enough water every day is important for your health.

Healthy people meet their fluid needs by drinking when thirsty and drinking fluids with meals. But, if you’re outside in hot weather for most of the day or doing vigorous physical activity, you’ll need to make an effort to drink more fluids.

Where do I get the water I need?

Most of your water needs are met through the water and beverages you drink. You can get some fluid through the foods you eat. For example, broth soups and other foods that are 85% to 95% water such as celery, tomatoes, oranges, and melons.

What does water do in my body?

Water helps your body with the following:

  • Keeps its temperature normal.
  • Lubricates and cushions your joints.
  • Protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues.
  • Gets rid of wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements.

You need water to replace what your body loses through normal everyday functions. Of course, you lose water when you go to the bathroom or sweat, but you even lose small amounts of water when you exhale. You need to replace this lost water to prevent dehydration.

Your body also needs more water when you are—

  • In hot climates.
  • More physically active.
  • Running a fever.
  • Having diarrhea or vomiting.

To help you stay hydrated during prolonged physical activity or when it is hot outside:

  1. Drink fluid while doing the activity.
  2. Drink several glasses of water or other fluid after the physical activity is completed.

Also, when you are participating in vigorous physical activity, it’s important to drink before you even feel thirsty. Thirst is a signal that your body is on the way to dehydration.

Tips for Increasing Your Fluid Intake by Drinking More Water

If you think you’re not getting enough water each day, the following tips may help:

  • Take your body weight and divide it in half – This number in ounces will be the approximate amount of water you need each day.
  • Carry a water bottle for easy access when you are at work or running errands.
  • Freeze some freezer-safe water bottles. Take one with you for ice-cold water all day long.
  • Choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. This tip can also help with weight management. Substituting water for one 20-ounce sugar-sweetened soda will save you about 240 calories.
  • Choose water instead of other beverages when eating out. Generally, you will save money and reduce calories.
  • Give your water a little pizzazz by adding a wedge of lime or lemon. This may improve the taste, and you just might drink more water than you usually do.

Migraines and Chiropractic Care

1413980_86105267There are MANY different types of headaches, of which migraines are a common type. This discussion will concentrate on some characteristics that are associated with migraine headaches. This information may help you understand what type of headache you’re having, and how we can help you!

A unique feature of migraine headaches is that prior to the start of the headache, there is often a pre-headache “warning” that the migraine is about to commence. This is often referred to as an “aura,” and it can vary from a few minutes, to a few hours, or in some cases, up to two days prior to the start of a migraine.

Here are some common “warning signs” that you are having, or about to have a migraine:

  • Neck pain. In an online survey, the National Headache Foundation found that 38% of migraine patients “always,” and 31% “frequently,” had neck pain accompany their migraine headache.
  • Frequent urination. This can precede the migraine by an hour or as much as two days.
  • Yawning. A 2006 article in the journal Cephalgia reported that about 36% of migraine sufferers describe yawning as a common pre-migraine warning. This can occur frequently, such as every few minutes.
  • A “sensory aura” may occur on half of the body, moving from the finger tips through the arm, across the face, or elsewhere and usually includes a temporary lack of feelings as if the body is “half asleep”.
  • Nausea and Vomiting. This is a common aura. According to the American Migraine Study II (a mail survey  of more than 3,700 migraine patients) 73% reported nausea and 29% vomiting. Another study reported that migraine sufferers who have nausea/vomiting usually have more severe migraine headaches and get less relief from the migraine medications compared to those who do not get nausea or vomiting.
  • Other common auras or “sensitivities” during the migraine include bright light, noise, and/or smells (like perfumes), and many migraine sufferers seek refuge in a dark, quiet room and try to sleep.
  • Physical Activity. Routine activities such as walking, climbing steps, running, weight lifting, or sexual activity can trigger a migraine and/or increase the intensity of an existing migraine headache.
  • Trouble Speaking. Difficulty “getting the words out” or formulating thought (staying on task) can be another warning sign of an impending migraine. Obviously, if this is the first time this system has occured and it’s “…out of the ordinary,” we’ll have to make sure it’s not something more serious (…like a stroke!)
  • Weakness. This may occur in an arm or leg or entire half of the body (left or right side) and also could be a more serious sign of a stroke, but it is also a fairly common pre-migraine aura.
  • Visual aura. This can include double vision and/or vertigo (balance loss with a spinning feeling). This often occurs in a special type of migraine called a “basilar-tpye migraine” and symptoms can include dizziness, double vision, or a loss of vision. The balance loss is often associated with a “bad migraine” and occurs when the migraine is stronger or more intense than usual.
  • “Headache hangover.” This usually occurs after the migraine has passed and people describe a feeling of being “wiped-out.” Symptoms can include fatigue, difficulty concentrating, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, and extreme energy loss.

In many cases, adjustments applied to the neck and upper back, especially when delivered BEFORE the migraine, can reduce the intensity and in some cases STOP the migraine from even starting.

We realize you have a choice in whom you consider for your health care provision and we sincerely appreciate your trust in choosing our service for those needs. If you, a friend, or family member requires care for headaches, we would be honored to render our services.
