is drinking a gallon and half of water a day bad for you?

Water

Diabetes
You should drink adequate water that is needed to quench your thirst. Drinking more than what you needed can certainly put your health in jeopardy including low sodium which potentially could cause seizure. However if you drinking that much water to quench your thirst on a daily basis, then you shoud get an evaluation, It can be a form of diabetes (mellitus or insipidus)

Help please! Is drinking a gallon of water a day bad?

Probably OK

Micturition
A gallon a day is probably more than what you need if you are not exercising vigorously or sweating a lot. However if you are feeling well otherwise, there is no harm done. Be sure that you don't have any health conditions which may cause you to have excessive thirst (diabetes is just one example) and urination.

Drinking 2 gallons of water per day bad?

yes

Blood_pressure
2 gallons or 7 liters is excessive water intake in most cases. If you do not have kidney stones then this much water intake is not recommended. You can develop water toxicity, electrolyte problems, increased blood pressure etc. 2-3 L /day is adequate water intake for most individuals

Is it bad if I'm drinking nothing but juice all day? Will juice keep me hydrated or should I drink water also? reason not much water is upsets belly

Unhealthy

Fruit_juice
You are mainly taking in a lot of sugar with little or no protein and minimal amount of fiber. This is not a cleansing but an unnatural and unhealthy diet. Even a bear can't stay healthy on just juices. In the meanwhile, water is needed since you are unlikely to get the minimum of 2 lit of water the average person requires from drinking juice alone.

How do you treat constipation for a 12-year-old? he has not had a bowel movement for three days. He took two doses of "Little Tummies" OTC medicine the first day with no effect. He's been drinking juice and water more than usual. He recently allowed me

The

The way I treat constipation in my clinic is to use a medication called polyetheylene glycol (miralax). It is now available over the counter. The nice thing about this medication is that it melts and softens the hard stool making it much easier to pass. You may want to try 1 cap full or packet in a large glass of water and see how that goes. You should not use more than 1 dose a day without speaking to your child's doctor. Below I've linked to a website with information on this medication. If constipation becomes a more chronic problem for him, then you should make an appointment with his doctor. Good luck!

How many litres of water we should take daily ideally? Is drinking water just before going to bed at night is good/bad for health?

WATER INTAKE

Nocturnal
IT'S NOT WHAT GOES IN THAT'S MOST IMPORTANT, IT'S WHAT VOLUME OF URINE YOU MAKE. A NON-STONE FORMING PERSON WITH NORMAL HEART SHOULD MAKE 1-1.5 LITERS OF URINE PER 24 HR. IF YOURE A STONE FORMER THIS # IS 2-2.5L/24 HRS. TO PREVENT STONE FORMATION. HOT DAYS WILL TAKE MORE AND INACTIVE DAYS WILL TAKE LESS. WHEN YOU DRINK IT ONLY DETERMINES WHEN IT WILL COME OUT.
