Can Dehydration Be the Cause of Obesity, Headaches, Mood
Swings, Lethargy, Allergies and More  
by Paul S Fitzgerald
A person can experience headaches and mood changes, be lethargic and tired, have
trouble concentrating, and has a slower response to external stimulus.

Unfortunately, many people don't recognize the onset of dehydration and fail to take
the necessary steps to prevent it and its results. In fact, many people think that
when they are thirsty, that a soft drink or alcoholic beverage will cure the problem.
There is nothing further from the truth in this kind of thinking. The body needs water,
not just any fluid, but only pure water. Fluids with caffeine, alcohol, or sugar will only
make dehydration worse because these substances tend to cause even more water
to be eliminated from the body.

Not treating dehydration correctly or further ignoring it can lead to more complicated
mental and physical symptoms. Physically speaking the lips will dry and begin to
crack, the urine will become dark, and the skin will become dry and papery and lose
its elasticity. At this point there is danger that the internal organs can be damaged
and treatment is of essential importance and the consumption of water is the cure.

However, the person must also be careful about how fast they drink the water. A
dehydrated person should not gulp down water as this could put the body into a
state of temporary shock thus preventing it from the acceptance of further
hydration. Instead, the dehydrated person must only sip the water initially, allowing
the mouth and the throat to become moist and then slowly allowing the water down
into the stomach area. This sipping should continue until the effects of dehydration
have diminished substantially. And even then, gulping down water to cure the thirst
should always be avoided, as too much water in too short of a time can in itself be

Like with any other health issue, prevention is always the best medicine. If you are
working out, out and about on a hot day, have young children or elderly in a hot
climate, or are starting to feel a little less energetic than normal, especially in warm
weather, it is wise to take frequent sips of water. The average adult needs
approximately one quart of water per day to prevent the onset of dehydration.
