  • Also if you drink too much water, way too much, your kidneys can be severely damaged. Our bodies are very intelligent and we underestimate it.

  • Great video… yes, I drink nearly one gallon of water per day and have since 1992. Just make sure you find out who they are, not who they is. Peace.

  • Hi Dr. Eric Berg, great video! Was curious about drinking distilled water to help rid the body of toxins every so often as distilled water and toxins have an affinity toward one another. Any truth to that that you’re aware of?

  • I was following the hype drinking tons of water to help with my dry skin and well, it didn’t worked.

    I’ll try more vitamim A foods.

  • This video I disagree with you on…Water is internal lubricator…I know when I dont drink alot of water my bowel movement become painful and my joints as well

  • How much water should be consumed when fasting. My functional doctor told me to drink a gallon of water when fasting and I’m under 105 pounds.

  • Ha ha, I love this. I see these people at the gym lugging around a gallon of water during their workouts. Crazy. My wife compulsively drinks water and is always on me about keeping hydrated. I eat a healthy lower carb diet, basically drink when I’m thirsty, typically I’ll have an iced green tea midway through the afternoon and a glass of two of water spread throughout the day. Seems to work for me, I’m healthy, active, have great energy and I’m not overweight.

  • Very interesting. I would like to ask. I deal with dry mouth. irritation in the throat to what I think is candida. I also have a hiatus hernia. Which I do believe will cause a vitamin deficiency and will lack of vitamin A as you put it would cause an issue like I’m dealing with. correct? Dry mouth pasty feeling and white coating on my tongue and in my throat? please let me know. I looked it up and it seems like it could be possible.

  • I don’t konw whether you are talking about drinking distilled water or mineral water.Most drinking are mineral water which contain all the electrolyte.Even if we flush out the electrolytes it is replacing with a new one.Your views may apply if people dring distilled water but not in drinking mineral water.

  • Hang on one sec Dr, the ‘water flushes out toxins is false’ one ill have to disagree. I remember a time many moons ago when there was a HEAP load of toxins in me, namely DRUGS, and the very next morning I was due a mandatory probation drug test. I started drinking a TON of water throughout the course of the evening and I actually PASSED the test!!!

  • Jesus is Coming VERY VERY SOON. Are you ready? Do you know Him? Has He washed your sins away? Is He your Master? Time is short. Don’t delay. Repent and make right with Him while you still can.

  • This ones kinda rockin my world rn lol. I’ve always thought drinking plenty of water was good for you? It always made so much sense as to why drinking plenty of water was good for you. But now this video is making a lot of sense, too.

  • It is parents who are responsible every day for making sure children are well nourished in every facet of their life.yes they worry.A study on the aged who maybe do not recieve the monitoring that children do every day may show different results.Many aging issues especially confusion have direct correlation with clinical dehydration.

  • My husband stopped drinking water because of an enlarged prostrate that kept him up at night peeing. He dehydrated and passed out in a restaurant, stopped breathing for about 30 seconds and ended up with a huge lump on his forehead. So I’d advise to find your balance.

  • I say I’m dehydrated when I forget to eat or drink water for at least 12hr and have s splitting headache. Basically when I get a hangover without drinking alcohol.

  • Actually dry skin is definitely NOT because you have a vitamin A deficiency. Vitamin A actully helps to regulate sebum production. High levels of vitamin A is pretty much like a mild dose of accutane which kinda impede the body’s ability to produce sebum, or the natural oil your body produces. Too much vitamin a dissolves the intercellular cement and by doing so the skin feels super dry and the skin will begin to flake off and it can be uncomfortably tight and dry if you dont know how to use this in a beneficial manner.
