Drink More Water!


Israel is in the middle of a sharav, a severe heat wave.

To my Israeli readers and anyone else in extremely hot weather: Drink pure water! Aim to down about 3 liters minimum in a day - in addition to natural fruit juices and teas.

If you or someone else looks pale, slows their speech and body movements and/or seems confused in the heat, call a doctor immediately.

Be sure to read Signs and Symptoms of Dehydration.

SKIP Coffee. It causes you to LOSE water. Carbonated beverages with nasty chemicals suck you dry and nutritionless. WATER is the necessary drink for excessively (and any) hot weather. Hydrate your children! They aren't aware of dehydration dangers. To your health!

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
