Yet another reason you may want to increase your water intake, to improve your hearing. The body needs water to keep all the connective tissue in good working order, and that includes eardrums. That’s right, lack of water which leads to dehydration can negatively impact your hearing or cause a ringing in the ears like tinnitus.
When you don’t have enough water in your system the eardrum becomes hard and inflexible, very much like cardboard. When that happens, the hardened eardrum can no longer pick up and differentiate frequencies – bringing new meaning to the expression “hard of hearing!”
Of course, your eardrum is just one connective tissue that needs to stay hydrated. Without enough water, the body overheats and begins to shut down – plus you start to get those ugly cellulite fat dimples! Nausea, dizziness, muscle cramps and spasms, blurry vision – and lack of hearing – all are symptoms of dehydration. These are just some of the reasons Dave’s Massage Works offers everyone a glass of water – to help all those connective tissues stay hydrated, and make your massage even more effective.
So, find yourself a good source of water and keep it flowing through your system. If your tap water doesn’t measure up, check out filter systems or a good filter pitcher to keep a ready supply of good drinkable water.
