By Brooke Rodgers – Holistic Health Coach

“Water is the only drink for a wise man.” – Henry David Thoreau

Those of us who drink water on a daily basis are typically in tune with the fact that we need water to survive, that if we don’t drink the proper amount of water each day we can become dehydrated which has a variety of unfriendly symptoms one can become increasingly concerned with.
