Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Are you well hydrated?

    During this hot summer, how many glasses of water are enough each day? Bastyr University has guidelines to help you recognize your need for hydration.

    Here are the highlights.

    • There are 4 ways to tell if you are properly hydrated.
      • Urine: clear or a very light yellow color
      • Stool: easy to pass without straining
      • Skin: pull up the skin on the back of your hand and it should bounce back to its original position quickly.
      • Thirst: If you’re thirsty, drink water.

    More information is available at Bastyr Center for Natural Health at (206) 834-4100.
