Life revolves around water. Almost all major cities throughout history have been located on or near water, it nourishes our gardens, cleans us, and growing up, your mother always told you to drink 8-10 glasses of it day.
The human body is comprised of anywhere between 50-75% water. But for how much it comprises us, we rarely hear about the ways water can go wrong in the human body.

Sweating, for all that we try to ignore it, is an important function of our body?s cooling system. But as a culture, we have spent millions of dollars trying to control or limit sweating with antiperspirants because of how it effects our clothing and its fragrant odor.

Although the physiological issues of hyperhidrosis are mild, secondary infections and dehydration being the most common, the psychologic effects can be tremendous.

The most common cause of excessive tears is, believe it or not, not producing tears regularly enough! When the body fails to produce enough lubricating tears, it can cause your eyes to become dry, a condition aptly named as dry eye syndrome.

Eyedrops are the most commonly used method for combating dry eye syndrome, although other methods exist, such as using wet clothes to trap in the moisture.
