8 Common Myths About Dehydration
Myth No. 2: Your body needs eight, 8-ounce glasses of water daily.

I have stopped drinking reverse osmosis filtered water and the positive results on my hydration status and well being have been shocking. For example: The nasty case of brain fog I had has gotten far better. I feel clear headed much of the time now.

8 Common Myths About Dehydration
“A lot of what we think about water is sheer guesswork,” says Elson Haas, MD, an integrated-medicine physician in San Rafael, Calif., and the author, most recently, of Staying Healthy with Nutrition (Celestial Arts, 2006). “A lack of research has led to a lack of knowledge. In fact, most of what people think they know about water isn’t even true.”

Is Your Bottled Water Killing You?
Based on the poor quality of what comes out of the municipal tap, health-conscious people often rely on bottled or home-filtered water for their drinking needs. While most filtered and bottled waters are free of cancer-causing contaminants, they provide little or no magnesium. Even most tap water is devoid of this critical mineral.

The implications of this widespread magnesium deficiency are frightening, in as much as communities with low magnesium content in drinking water show increased rates of sudden death.

Magnesium plays hundreds of crucial roles in the body, including suppressing unstable heart rhythms, controlling blood pressure, maintaining insulin sensitivity, and regulating over 300 enzymes. Attaining optimal magnesium levels is an absolute requirement for good health.

Interesting posts, particularly the influence of hydration status on CCSVI. I always drink plenty of fluids before getting blood drawn so that I'm an easier stick.

The marketing of bottled water is probably one of the most brilliant scams in history...but I must admit I am a victim.

"It turns out that dehydration also causes brain and spinal cord pseudoatrophy and is probably the cause of CCSVI. I was not surprised to see that the majority of the findings of CCSVI can be cured by rehydration (see abstract below); 1.5 litres of Gatorade cured cured CCSVI in over 70% of cases. Being dehyradted cause the central veins to collapse and hence results in pseudo venous obstruction; simply rehydrating expands the blood volume and the pseudo-obstructions disappear."

Thanks centenarian100. :-D
Since I have been serious about hydrating and avoiding the reverse osmosis filtered water, I have been doing much better. It sure is necessary for a clear head.

Here's a thread I started on hypovolemia, hydration, blood volume and implications in CCSVI back in 2010

Hypovolemia means low blood volume. This condition can be very serious and happens due to blood loss from injury, but it can also be mild and happens in a body that is dehydrated or is inactive or not functioning well. This happens often to the elderly. Low blood volume can cause orthostatic hypotension. This is when there isn't enough blood getting to the brain when a person changes position, from lying down to upright. This can lead to dizziness, confusion and falls, and often happens in the elderly. But it can happen in people with MS, too. Orthostatic hypotension is well-documented in MS and has been a mystery for researchers. It is thought to be due to autonomic dysfunction.

Thinking about blood volume in terms of CCSVI treatment and restenosis has been very interesting to me. If angioplasty is returning good, open routes of flow, but the body is not able to compensate by providing adequate blood volume, then these opened vessels will not have the necessary pressure to remain opened. And the areas of prior stenosis might re-collapse, just like an old garden hose with low flow.

I hope to bring this avenue of discussion to the doctors. Perhaps aftercare needs to include additional hydration, salt intake, maybe even intravenous fluids--all to keep blood levels adequate. Inactivity and remaining in the supine position increase hypovolemia--therefore, movement, exercise and upright activities would encourage blood flow and blood volume. Something to think about as we move forward with CCSVI research in 2011.

It's part of the equation, but certainly not all of it. Jeff had a truncular venous malformation---that had nothing to do with his hydration status.
Water is vitally important...but only part of an overall, holistic program.
