One of the most common questions from patients is, “How much water should I drink each day?” The answer on how to stay hydrated with water is typically drinking between 25 percent and 50 percent of your body weight in ounces of water daily. So if you weigh 160 pounds, you typically want to try to get between 40–80 ounces (5-10 glasses) of water a day.
A properly hydrated body is necessary for proper lubrication and proper motor functioning. Can we become dehydrated even if we drink enough water? Dehydration weakens your ability to fight disease. Disease slows the body’s ability to break down the clusters of water that control the water going into our cells. Dehydration also leads to dryness in your life force which results in a loss of creative abilities. Dehydration causes the body to feel stressed, and the stress causes more dehydration as the body has a check and balance system to conserve more water as needed.

Batmanghelidj' classic water book "Your body's many cries for Water" explains a breakthrough discovery that Unintentional Chronic Dehydration(UCD) produces stress, chronic pains and many painful degenerative diseases. The essential message is that the body indicates the need for water well before we are thirsty. These “cries for water” are diagnosed as a medical condition requiring drugs, which only worsens the body’s dehydration. Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration; waiting to get thirsty is wrong.
