Eat Your Water Wisely.
American Journal of Lifestyle
Medicine, "water is
considered the single most important
nutrient, yet receives relatively
little attention from nutritional
experts. This is likely due to the
fortunate fact that finely-tuned
physiological mechanisms ensure
adequate intake in the vast majority
of individuals. Accordingly, some
even question whether the standard
"8 daily glasses" are necessary.
Moreover, water is a major
constituent of food, comprising up
to 95% of the weight of some common
plant-based foods; thus, consuming a
diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and
dairy will inadvertently increase
water intake. An added benefit of
consuming more water in food is the
increased satiation for lower
caloric density which facilitates
weight reduction and maintenance.
While most healthy
individuals adequately fulfill their
hydration needs through the
physiological thirst response, some
special populations including the
very young, very old, and athletes,
do deserve special consideration.
With the increased incentive for
Americans to increase their physical
activity, and the increased
prevalence of recreational athletes
entering endurance athletic events,
comes increased impetus to educate
all individuals on the importance of
proper hydration during exercise
training. Most athletes, both
professional and recreational, do
not obtain adequate hydration to
match sweat losses, while some
novice endurance athletes
over-hydrate placing them at risk
for hyponatremia, a potentially
life-threatening condition. In
general, increasing the consumption
of water-rich foods, replacing most
caloric beverages with water, and
learning about personal hydration
needs is sound nutritional advice
for everyone to follow."

Dr. Oz Weighs In On Reflux Meds
Reverse Reflux Action Plan
If you read this newsletter, you are
very well aware of our position on
GERD/Acid Reflux medication. If our
pleas, backed by the FDA and copious
data, have not swayed you to look
for an alternative, then maybe Dr.
Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen can
convince you. On their website
realage.com, they recently addressed
a "You Docs" question from a reader
who had heard about PPIs
contributing to bone loss and wanted
to go off them. Here is their
"The PPI you've been
using may have turned down the fire
in your belly, but it clearly didn't
stop stomach acid from traveling up
your esophagus. You're smart to
worry about your bone loss. There's
evidence that PPIs weaken bones,
partly by interfering with calcium
absorption...We suspect it's time to
kiss your PPI goodbye."
GERD/Reflux can be addressed through
diet, nutrient, and lifestyle
change. For this reason, we have
completely revamped our Reverse
Reflux Action Plan, which now
has one section dedicated to adults
and one section for children. For

Plans are free to Well Connect paid

In a recent study, bicarb slowed
the rate of decline in kidney
function by two-thirds, and just
6.5% of patients treated with
bicarb needed dialysis compared
to 33% in control group.
Extracellular space (area

cells is slightly acidic, and
the degree of acidity tends to
correlate with tumor

acidity with bicarb increases pH
