Everything You Should Know About Hydration and Didn’t Know to Ask

According to return guest Gina Bria, the majority of the water we drink has lost its electrical charge, yes electoral charge, and as such is not hydrating!

She also shares:

• How water communicates with your cells
• How guzzling eight glasses of water a day can harm your health
• How micro-movements keep your body hydrated.
• What is fascia and why it is critical to your well-being?
And so much more…
