About the Lecture
Cellular hydration is of paramount importance to the well-being of cancer patients during treatment and beyond. The body uses water throughout the day that needs to be replenished. During cancer treatment, many of the side effects, vomiting, fever, sweating and diarrhea, can rob the body of crucial water and electrolytes. Cancer treatments can also cause lack of appetite and thirst, sore throat and mouth, and heightened sensitives, leading to dehydration.
Hydration is more complex than simply drinking water. The food you eat determines how the water you are drinking will be stored and how it can help maintain cells for better health. In this lecture, Dr. Howard Murad discusses the importance of hydration & Carolyn Katzin addresses the nutritional value of high-water content foods and the role of hydration during treatment for cancer.
