How much distilled water should a person drink?
Dr. Reams taught that one can determine the amount of distilled water they need to consume per day by dividing their weight by 2 and converting the answer to ounces. For example, a 100-pound person would drink (100 ¸ 2 = 50) or approximately 50 ounces (1.5 quarts) of extra water through the day other than that obtained through food and additional beverages. Herbal teas can be counted in
as part of water intake however. In order for the liver to make the best use of the calculated daily water needs, it should be divided into at least 20 increments so 1 increment can be consumed every half-hour during 10 hours of the day from 6-7am to 4-5 pm. Some people will do even better by dividing their calculated water intake into 24 increments to be consumed every half-hour over 12 hours. Sometimes, we reduce the calculated water needs by 20% if there is concern for an individual over- drinking because of certain lifestyle or health challenges. On the other hand, during physical exertion or hot weather, there may be a need to increase the calculated water need by a certain amount. The only way to know, accurately, how much water a person needs to consume is “go by the numbers.” That was Dr. Reams’ favorite expression when pointing out how the RBTI urine and saliva test results (the numbers) will provide the perfect answers, when consulted.
