Wow, was I blown away during my chat with Dr. Dana Cohen and Gina Bria! Everything I thought I knew about hydration was at a minimum misguided, and much was just plain olde’ wrong!

In this episode, we explore hydration, and when you think you are dehydrated — you are incredibly dehydrated! I had no idea that with just a 2% loss of hydration there are obvious physical responses including loss of concentration and focus!  The authors of the ground-breaking book Quench share: 

• What are electrolytes and do we need them
• What is gel water and why its’ better for health and real hydration 
• Why, in scientific terms, drinking 8 glasses of water/day is not optimal for hydration.
• Fascia – what it is, how we can use it to enhance our bodies’ hydration and the simple micro-movement that help drastically improve your hydration, plus so much more….
