Drink plenty of good quality water.
As a massage therapist living in Arizona, I have seen many clients in the past ten years with pain and arthritis-like symptoms that have been improved or relieved simply by increasing water intake. Especially important when the temperatures soar during the hot summer months, if you think you may not be drinking enough water, simply try drinking more water for a week to see the results. *
For more information, below is a link to my “water expert”, Dr. Batmanghelidj, who believes that chronic unintentional dehydration can cause painful degenerative diseases, including angina, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune diseases, back pain, diabetes, heartburn, high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, pain and more.
