Water consumption and the Guaifenesin Protocol

I hear many people saying that you need to drink lots of water to help flush out the phosphates.

Dr St Amand states that it’s not necessary in his 3rd edition book. Drinking lots of water is for sinus and loosening mucus, and we are most interested in the effect on the Kidneys with the Guaifenesin protocol.

That said, drinking lots of water is just plain good for overall health! If you wait until you FEEL thirsty, you are waiting too long and likely are already dehydrated! Which all by itself can cause fatigue and we already struggle enough with that, thank you very much!

Drinking lots of water can also help with any bladder, UTI problems you may have. It will HELP, but if you have an infection, don’t expect just water to make it go away please!

    Hi Christine,

    I do underwrite (as health professional) that the daily water consumption for most people is too low. I want to give a cautionary comment here. During the Summer months drinking plain or even distilled or bottled water (worthy of another post) might have a leeching effect. I have treated people that were having heat exhaustion and heat strokes because they drank too much water and did not replace the electrolytes/minerals that were excreted due to perspiration.

    The extra water allowed the patient to perspire even more and they don’t realize that with perspiration important salts leave the body that are needed for many important functions. I would direct your readers to visit your http://christinescozycorner.ca/recipes/ section to find some replacement for chicken broth. (our mother’s and grandmothers knew that it was good! 🙂 )
    NOTE: to be near water (lake etc) and enjoying a cooling wind during a warm day outside are the most dangerous moments: one does not feel the perspiration and forget to drink as you stated before… you don’t feel thirsty. For people with Fibro who often have a chronic headache the onset of dehydration signs (headache and tired feeling) are often ignored as they are kinda normal…

    Good post Christine and keep up the great work!
