Or try Crystal Light which has a variety of different flavors. But, I also have the habit of being a "two-fisted" drinker--one tea and a glass of water OR one beer and a glass water. This routine serves two purposes. Second, it helps me maintain my daily hydration. T his one is simple and easy to follow. I like a good jolt of caffeine in the morning, but I make myself drink three glasses of water before indulging in caffeine.
Here are 3 of the best water filter pitchers you can use at home. Your body can be a bit sneaky. Sometimes when you need water it can feel like you are hungry. Some people grab that Mars Bar and slam down unneeded calories. It's far better to drink a bit of water the next time you feel hungry. Then, if the hunger persists…eat and drink water while eating. Convenience and tracking are great ways to get in your daily requirements of water, but you also want to make it more palatable.
Do it this way and look forward to getting your daily fill of high quality H2O. Personally, I can't stand the taste of "sugar free" drinks, but some people find that adding them to water makes it taste a whole lot better.
Yes, crystal light does count as water intake, but sugar substitutes bring their own issues, so use sparingly. You can add flavor, or fruit if you want. Take them out in the morning and drink them throughout the day for ice cold water. Try to finish them all. Having everything prepared before hand is a simple way to track your water intake.
By pre-planning your water intake, all you'll have to remember is to create the water each night and drink every bottle you fill. Another great option is to try carbonated water. According to the Mayo Clinic, carbonated water is every bit as healthy as tap water, with no adverse effects on the body. Sometimes that bubbly and effervescent water can hit the spot. Add this to the idea of flavoring your carbonated water and you could have a big hit that hill help keep you hydrated.
Keep the flavoring non-sugar, non-aspartame and all natural, of course! There are lots of good options for these carbonation machines.
The one pictured here is a very good one. It carbonates 1 liter at a time, using cannisters good for carbonating 60 liters of water. There are fancier and bigger carbonators out there, but for the price this water carbonator is the best rated.
In fact there are 60 different flavoring available for this home seltzer water maker. There are all natural flavorings and non-asparatme and non-high fructose corn syrup options.
Being an advocate of pure water I would highly recommend sticking to natural flavorings only, however. In my opinion, increasing your water intake is one of the simplest, but most effective routines you can add to your life.
Simply follow the strategies I've outline in this post and you'll form a habit that will make you healthier, happier and more likely to form other positive, life-changing habits. Finally, when you've mastered this habit, I encourage you to try some simple workout routines or increasing your daily step count. Both are simple routines that can produce a dynamic change to your weight and overall fitness level.

It could kill you. Exactly one month ago today I felt pain on the right side of my belly like none other I had ever experienced before.
I was having my period and thought that maybe I was experiencing some form of cramping that I had yet to come to know in this lifetime. No sleep came to me as I moaned through the night. The next day my partner and I decide I needed to go to Urgent Care. Make our way there at about 2: I wonder if my appendix would have ruptured if I had been seen by a doctor 36 hours earlier?
Knowing what I know now I would go straight to the ER and bi-pass all the rest that only seemed to keep me from getting the help I needed. I had to have drains put in a week after surgery due to infections in the place where my appendix once was and one on my uterus. Recently About 3 months ago.
I started feeling the pains as well. After about 2 days of these pains, I went to the hospital. They took my blood sample, the doctor poked around. And then prescribed me expensive pills to buy, and told me to come back in 2 weeks for an x-ray.
So next day I get up and walk to get these pills at local pharmacy. I went home and took these pills and was not feeling any better the next day.
And decided that Its time to go back to the hospital. Which case I was asked to take blood samples, and a different doctor telling me I had High white blood cell count. And then preformed x-ray on me. The Doctor told me, I had a build up of alot of Feces, And then I felt pretty embarrassed that i was filled with feces..
So he prescribed me a laxative, which then I went to the doctors and got a laxative. He told me in 5 days I should be better… 5 days later.. I went back to see yet another different doctor. I told her that im pooping, but im not pooping enough to get better. So she gave me a stronger prescription of laxative to get. Then In a few days I should feel better.. I go back to the hospital. And then A new doctor, Poked me, and pulled her hand away really quick at my right stomach she asked me if that hurt, and i said yes.
She comes back about 30 minutes later and tells me I have ruptured appendix start me on IV treatment. So for 2 weeks I was admitted.
Then Released without any surger…. And even to this day, Its still in me, and Im scared. My specialist has been on holidays this and that and just waiting to see him is awful. It aches but it isnt a strong aching feeling just that it kinda aches. And my poop has not been the same since, and with blood in it, which my specialist knows now. So im still really upset that, there really is no ambition anymore to help me.
I hope i dont have permanent damage,. Wow, that sounds extremely dangerous. My fiances uncle just died in his early 40s from his appendix rupturing.
I had no clue that this was such a serious complication. He was in pain for a while and like most men, he shrugged it off as him straining a muscle. By then the damage had been done. He also had his stomach pumped from the puss that formed in it. After two weeks of being in the hospital,the worse news comes on Monday, Labor Day just the other day , that our beloved, favorite uncle had passed away.
They beleive he had went into cardiac arrest probably found him when they were doing rounds. I figured that since he made it into the hospital that he would eventually be fine. After reading all the stories, I realize how serious this really is.
Wish I knew this before and was able to communicate it to him long before the rupture. Woulda, shoulda, coulda never changed the course of history…. Harlem USA…You will be missed terribly and you are loved! Wednesday we brought her to the ER due to severe stomach cramps… diagnosis was stomach flu and specifically not appendicitis.
From Tuesday until Friday she is laid out on the couch unable move from extreme pain and I have to carry her to the rest room where she can throw up and have diarrhea. It kills me now looking back at what she endured. So on Friday we take her to a different doctor and just like the other stories on here: IV, CT scan and they find the ruptured appendix.
This is my little girl! I just hope all goes well from here on out. It started first though, with me burping uncontrollably to a point where I was feeling frustrated and tired. Overall it was a scary incident cause the tremendous pain, diagnosis and surgery were all done under 24 hours. It all goes o show how fast things change.
So good luck to all, and stay safe. I found this site looking up this problem because my doctor told me after pressing down on that part of my stomach, that if it started hurting esp.
Hard to believe you can be taken away from your family suddenly for something that many of us -and certainly i, would have ignored as something else. I was there for something else but i guess he noticed it was inflamed.
My mom and i have decided to go in early tomorrow. Hope i get taken care and everything goes well. My son is 33yrs old and like most of you suffered with serious stomach pain. He thought the pain was stomach poisoning and treated the simptoms with various over the counter medications.
His CT Scan showed his appendics was intact. When he was finally taken to surgery at After surgery we were informed the appendix had burst. I am reading this blog to find out what we can expect in the days to come. I am so thankful my wonderful son is alive and doing better by the hour.
From this point forward I will trust my Lord and Savior that my son will recover and lead a productive full life. Prayers and best wishes to you all. I was taken to the ER and was told I had a blockage in my left kidney.
They put stints in it and performed surgery. Two weeks after all of that with my kidney, I started to feel sick. My stomach got HUGE! I went to the ER again and they asked me if I was pregnant!! They took CT scans and found out my appendix has ruptured 5 days ago and it was encapsulated. The anti-biotics I was on from my kidney surgery saved me. My appendix is still in me. Should I go to a different doctor for a different opinion or is it safer to keep my appendix in me?
Will it rupture again? Thank you and God Bless. I woud say go to a different doctor. I went through the same thing a couple years ago, but mine was ruptured for two weeks and they did have to cut me open. I thought I had the flu. After a week straight of vomiting I went to a walk in clinic.
They said it was the flu and sent me home! The next day I was half dead and had a fever of a hundred and four. Finally, at 6 pm they got me into surgery, saying it would only be an hour to an hour and a half, it ended up being almost four hours. I had an abcess the size of a grapefruit in my abdomen, pertonitis infection of the lining of the stomach , and was septic. I was in the hospital for eleven days. I had early pnumonia and had to have a tube inserted through my nose to my stomach to get rid of all the nasty infection.
The surgeon said its amazing I lived. A lot of people have gone through so much pain, I hope you all are able to figure out your health problems. I was had pain through out my stomach and due to this I didnt just feel pain on my side. At first i thought it was gas pain or food posioning. I took some tums and tried to go to sleep. Then i started vomiting. The pain would not go away and then increased as the night went on. I vomitted about three times during the day.
I finally could not take the constant annoying pain and woke my husband. I went to the er at 12 midnight. After being seen and CT scan was done — by this time it was 3: I just had surgery on saturday.
I prayed that my appendix didnt rupture because i knew the comlications that would follow. Good news after surgery I asked my husband if it prayer ruptured and he said no. I was so happy. The power of prayer does work. I pray that you all get better soon and have a speedy recovery. Between Mar and Early Sep the pain got so bad I just wanted to die as the doctors just kept ignoring me as if I was making it up.
Mine was inflammed on a friday, burst sunday and I was unaware of this for 5 days.. Consider yourself lucky I Had my belly opened and cleaned.. He was on IV antibiotics 4 days then avelox 3 weeks. Only drained it once. We have decided not to have an internal appendectomy since appendix likely gone anyway and statistics show non surgical conservative treatment is typically enough in a case such as his where rupture and pockets of abecess occurred. He is 10 weeks since he went into the hospital and no issues.
Sometimes he feels some tightness down there but it is very minor and is probably his organs getting back to their normal position after the plastering effect he had with the walled off condition. I walked around with a burst apendix for a good 2 weeks. Doctors thought i was lying. I was 15 so i didnt really realise how bad it actually was until now. Im only looking into it because of a paper im writting for my uni course.
I too had a similar experience when I was 9 years old. All the same pain, misdiagnosed intestinal flu, tubes in my stomach, etc. I had the Last Rites performed over me by a sympathic priest in the Catholic hospital I was in. I am not Catholic. This was in No cat scans, etc. A year later I had to have repairative surgery for torn stitches in my abdomen from the rotted tissue.
I was really against drs. I told them I had had a kidney infection before and this was nothing like one. A week later, a chiroprater finally took an X-Ray and saw a colon blockage. I had a colonic and began throwing up feces. I was rushed across town to a specialist and was operated on within the hour on a Friday afternoon. I had scar tissue grown around my colon that was blocking it. If you have had abdomenal surgery and ever, EVER have more pain like mentioned-scream as loud as you can to the drs!!
I went to was the same one that had operated on me as a child and I told everyone else of my previous surgery, to no avail. I owe the successful births all at home-I really, really do not like drs and hospitals of my 5 children to the fact that I have been dilagent in my pursued of natural and alternative medicine and lifestyle.
Peach and wellness to you all. I am wondering if you are still around or if anyone is still around who might share some experience on recovery process and time.
I dont know if my experience is unique or not, but I had a burst appendix and they did NOT operate. Instead they hooked me to an IV and gave me loads of antibiotics and sent me home after 3 days with a bunch of prescriptions and told me to call and setup an appointment for next month.
