Is It Harmful To Drink 24 Cups Of Water A Day
Probably not: The usual feeling is that 8 cups of liquid per day is sufficient. 24 cups would obligate you to never be far from a bathroom and unless you have an unusual problem with water metabolism, you body will simply eliminate the excess water with an outpouring of diluted urine. If you are doing this as part of a detox regimen, it is doubtful that over 8 cups will add anything. ...Read more

White fury tongue? I have had a white "fury" tongue for about 2 weeks. I'm not dehydrated because I drink several cups of water a day. I have tried coconut oil and grapefruit seed extract thinking it was thrush but they are not working. My tongue is split
Usually: Usually a white coating on the tongue represents debris, bacteria and dead cells that makes it look white. The "furry" presentation is due to the thin hair like filiform papilla that cover the dorsal surface of the tongue. This presentation is usually harmless and temporary. White lesions in the mouth can also be indicative of more serious conditions such as infections, autoimmune diseases and precancerous / cancerous lesions. For this reason it is recommended that you be evaluated by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon should the condition persist more than a week. ...Read more

If I drink 7 cups of water each day, how many times should I be using the restroom? Currently I have to go about once per cup I drink.

If you drink about 2 quarts of urine a day, you should void about a quart and a half.

Urine volume is affected by sweating, diarrhea, vomiti ...Read more

If you go pee every 6 hrs you are doing fine. ...Read more

Unsweet tea = fluids: Tea, coffee and soda do qualify as fluids for your body, and it is recommended that adults drink at least 6-8 cups daily. Water is preferred, as it doesn't have chemicals like caffeine or sugars that require extra metabolism or extra calories. Fluid intake should be enough to relieve all thirst and to allow a person to urinate 4-5 times daily with urine that is very light yellow. ...Read more
