Water is a wonderful thing yet often it is overlooked.  Staying well hydrated can help a variety of things including looking younger, aiding in weight loss, better digestion and reduction in muscle cramps.  Our bodies are made up of 60-70% water; we can lose up to 2 litres of water per day through breathing, sweating and excretion, even more if we exercise or during warmer months.  It is very important for our health to stay hydrated.  For more information on health call your Edmonton Chiropractor at 780-430-7549.


Headaches and migraines can be caused by dehydration.  If you are a suffering of headaches and migraines, increasing your water intake can help give you relief from these ailments.  Along with drinking water, chiropractic adjustments can help relieve the pain of migraines.  The combination of keeping regularly hydrated and getting regular chiropractic adjustments can have you living pain-free!  For more information on hydration or chiropractic adjustments, contact us at 780-430-7549 or www.whitemudchiro.com.  See your Edmonton Chiropractor today!


Water is important in our bodies to help distribute nutrients throughout the body.  It also helps cleanse the body of toxins.  Not having enough water can lead to a groggy, tired feeling, it can also lead to sore, achy muscles.  It is important to drink water throughout the day, not just when you are thirsty as being thirsty is a sign of dehydration already.  Drinking enough water can also help maintain optimal weight or achieve weight loss.  For more information check out www.whitemudchiro.com.


At birth, intervertebral discs are 80% water usually this declines with age.  However, by staying hydrated, we can keep these discs nourished and healthy.  Many people see a chiropractor for back pain.  Adjustments can relieve lower, upper and middle back pain.  Keeping hydrated can help your body “hold” these adjustments, as water is nourishing the discs and keeping them fluid.  This can also be true for your joints.  By consuming enough water, your joints can stay strong, healthy and lubricated. Drinking water and regular adjustments can help you live a long and healthy life.  For more information, call your Edmonton chiropractor at 780-430-7549.


Drinking water can make you smarter!  Having a well-hydrated body ensures that your brain is getting all the oxygen it needs; this can help improve your cognitive function by 30%.  Water also helps support nerve function.  It ensures that your body’s electrolyte levels remain high enough to allow your nerves to relay messages to and from the brain in the way they were meant to.  Chiropractic adjustments also ensure your nervous system is functioning optimally.  Chiropractic and water can keep your nervous system at its best, so you are at your best.  Contact your Edmonton chiropractor today at 780-430-7549 or www.whitemudchiro.com.
