How To Know If You’re Drinking Enough Water Every Day

March 1, 2019

There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to shoes, coffee orders, or 21st century health care.

Too much of something for one person might be just right for the next – what works for me might be bad news for you, and tomorrow it could all flip the other way around and then back again.

Personalized medicine, the kind of care we practice at Parsley Health, recognizes that no two people are biologically, genetically, psychologically or socially the same. Our unique intervention and treatment plans reflect this emphasis on individuality. There’s no one else else like you.

Water is about as boring as it gets, but it’s also the most important beverage in your life. You need enough of it every day.

How much is “enough water”?

As usual, the answer lies within –  inside your bladder and the toilet bowl.

You know you’re drinking enough water if your pee is light yellow or clear. If it’s dark yellow, you feel dizzy when you stand up from sitting, your lips look cracked and dry, or you are prone to headaches, you may be dehydrated. You can pee up to 2 liters a day and you lose water through the skin.

“I recommend drinking 2 liters of water a day – ideally with a squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice in it — to stay well hydrated. And look for clear pee.” – Robin Berzin MD

Is there such a thing as “too much water”?

Yes, but you’re probably not guilty of it.

According to the researchers, drinking too much fluid can lead to confusion, nausea, lightheadedness, and in rare cases, a condition called exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH), a condition that has caused the death of more than 14 athletes since 1981! But unless you’re an active athlete, drinking too much water is probably not your biggest concern.

For now, drink up! Have  a glass of filtered water every few hours, keep a close eye on your urine and remember that the water you drink forms part of the major transport system in your body – helping to reduce pain, diminish hunger, move your poop along, and sweep toxins away.
