Tips for Staying Hydrated (and why it’s important after chiropractic treatment)

Drinking water is vital for health and well-being, and it helps every system of the body function at its best. Think of water as a necessary nutrient, just like protein, carbs or vitamins. Drinking enough helps your body maintain balance, control calories, energize your muscles and keep al of your systems working at their best.

Staying hydrated is always important, but it is especially crucial following a chiropractic adjustment. When our chiropractors in Vancouver, WA perform adjustments, we reduce stress and tension in your spine by putting your body into proper alignment. When your body is properly aligned, toxins are released, and drinking plenty of water after your treatment can help remove the toxins from your body more quickly. Drinking water following your appointment can also nourish the discs in your back, keeping your spine flexible and healthy.

Not getting enough water? Follow these tips to power up your daily intake:

1. Set an alarm.

If you forget to sip on water throughout the day, set an alarm on your phone reminding you to drink periodically.

2. Drink before you eat.

Down a liter of water before your next meal to not only stay hydrated, but also help you lose weight. A belly full of water will make you feel fuller, reducing the amount of calories you consume during your meal.

3. Invest in a reusable bottle.

Skip the plastic ones that are degrading the environment and get a reusable stainless steel bottle you can take anywhere. You’ll never be without a drink.

4. Infuse it for flavor.

If you crave a different taste, add natural flavorings to your water. Toss in some sliced cucumbers for a refreshing treat, or add lemons and limes for a bit of tanginess. Berries, orange, basil, watermelon and even lavender can be pleasant additions.

5. Go for a gallon.

If you need a visual reminder to drink more water, fill up a gallon jug each morning and use it to refill your water bottle throughout the day. Set a goal to finish it by a certain time and watch the level go down as you hydrate!
