Is drinking a lot of water good for you? Let’s talk about it.

I’m not against drinking water. I drink about two and a half liters of water every day.

However, water doesn’t actually hydrate you—it may even dehydrate you. There is even such a thing as water intoxication, also known as water poisoning or overhydration.

Specific proteins allow water to go into your cells with the help of electrolytes. When you drink excessive amounts of water without electrolytes, you dilute the body’s electrolytes—mainly sodium. Hyponatremia is a condition where a person has low sodium levels in the blood.

Symptoms of hyponatremia can include:
• Muscle weakness
• Headache
• Nausea
• Confusion
• Irritability
• Cramping
• Brain swelling

Common causes of hyponatremia:
• Exercising
• Addison’s disease
• Drinking alcohol
• A hypothyroid condition
• Diuretics
• Diabetes
• Diarrhea
• Vomiting
• Excessive sweating
• Certain medications

Infants are also susceptible to hyponatremia.

There have actually been deaths caused by people drinking about six liters of water within a three-hour period.

On the flip side, if you’re susceptible to kidney stones, you should drink at least two and a half liters of fluid a day.

I think two to two and a half liters of fluid a day is reasonable. If you’re exercising, it’s important to make sure you don’t drink too much water without electrolytes, causing hyponatremia.

If you use an electrolyte powder in your water when exercising, make sure it’s a sports version with plenty of sodium or take sodium with it.

Thanks for watching! I hope this helps increase your awareness of the dangers of drinking too much water. I’ll see you in the next video.


  1. Years ago I was told by my doctor I was drinking too much water. I had alkalalosis and was constantly thirsty.

    • @Brick Mudge I went on a high fat carnivore diet, but getting off gluten was the cure. Even if you are not celiac you may be gluten sensitive. Anyone with an autoimmune disease should first get off gluten.

    • @Michele McNeill Ha! Everyone should avoid gluten as much as possible! lol! I eat very little of it. Even before I adopted a “carnivore-based” diet about a year ago.

  2. I dont know about yall, but I completely prefer nutrition, and Dr. Berg’s Healthy Keto, instead of needing drugs, alcohol or a 2 liter of coca-cola to feel “normal” and function every day❗️ FACTS DR. BERG 💯

  3. Can you talk more about how hypothyroidism contributes to dehydration? I’m hypothyroid and have struggled with hydration levels for DECADES. I would LOVE to understand this correlation better.

    • I hope you get a reply here!

      Also, Judy Cho from the channel Nutrition with Judy has an interview with Dr. Elizabeth Bright where she talks about salt and hypothyroidism and it has something to do with the kidneys not handling it well with hypothyroid. Dr. David Brownstein has an excellent video on salt and another in iodine, both are also interviews with Judy as well. Great info.!

  4. Yup, this has happened to me. I kept drinking a lot of water cause I always felt dehydrated and thirsty but it never worked and I ended up peeing most of it out anyway. Switched to coconut water and drinks with electrolytes and damn, what a difference. I feel like this liquid is now staying in me rather than passing through me.

    • Same with me too and then you dilute the good things. I have to go #1 continually if I drink water & that’s terrible if you’re not at home to take your bathroomtrips

    • @Denise Gibson I really don’t know how much hymalayan salt to take, I just use a few pinches early morning but I use it in my eggs or oatmeal for breakfast too

    • ​@Madd Worldi thought its just me. If i drink, i go do no 1 10-15 mins after and just tiring going to the toilet. If i dont drink i get dysuria, quite annoying to just stay balancedm

    • @Denise Gibson In the FL heat my husband golfs & was having a problem with stamina by the end & the next morning before he left I made him drink 2 large pinchesof pink salt in some water – he complained & said he drinks alot of water out there.. but he came home shocked that he wasn’t worn out & playing poorly. Now he asks me to make it for him.

  5. For the last 1-1/2 years, on your healthy keto, I’ve been drinking on average between 8 and 12 bottles of (16 oz) spring water with a scoop of your electrolyte powder in each bottle and it makes me feel good, of course I work very hard out doors/physical activities, so I need it. Also, I have only been eating OMAD for the last 6 months without snacking throughout the day. It took a lot of self-discipline to get where I’m now. Thank you, Dr. Berg, for your knowledge and wisdom!!!

  6. In middle eastern medicine traditions, it is recommend to drink water in a sitting position, because the water passes through you easier drinking standing.
    As a trekker I was recommended to take sips of water every once in a while, that way one did not even have to use the restroom on a trail, because the water was used by body, or sweating out

  7. about 20 years ago i watched a documentary about a guy who was lost out in a wooded area in the sweltering heat, he had plenty of water to drink from a stream but he drank so much that he was delirious from ‘washing’ all the salts out of his body

    • That’s because the water was low in minerals. Proper Sodium & Water balance eliminates that problem. Hyponatremia (what the guy in the documentary experienced) can be worse than dehydration.

  8. In times of old they used to call the study of the body’s minerals “alchemy” but it’s not occult practice to monitor your minerals via hair mineral analysis for instance. This way you can administer minerals via specific foods and address the imbalance thus regaining health and well-being. Which leads to Dr Berg. This gentleman is well practiced in restoring minerals in the body. I tell anyone who will listen, “Dr Berg” cleared up my heart palpitations so quick. He’s the genuine article. His work speaks for itself. Thanks Dr Berg.

  9. Important video. British actor Anthony Andrews survived water intoxication. He consumed up to eight litres of water a day. He was unconscious and in intensive care for three days.

  10. Thanks Doc. ❤I love to drink 💦 water so much but now that you give me very good advice I will drop my intake to 2 liters a day. I appreciate you and your knowledge. 👍⭐️❤️

    • Pronouns and sexual diversity is more important. You don’t need to know anything else because the government will take care of you – but only if you do as they say.

    • I don’t know what people expect when they receive their education from their enemy (government school). You’re supposed to go through school simply so you can have a better paying career than those who don’t. None of it is about getting a proper education.

  11. I can chime in on this. Im a delivery driver. And during the hot Florida summer. I once drank ao much water that i slowly became sick throughout the day. And I thought i was dehydrated. Ended up getting heat exhaustion and had to take several days off work.

    So what happened ? I didn’t replenish my electrolytes. So i diluting it throughout the day. I actually didnt known that i needed to replenish electrolytes since amazon never trained us about it! Ever since that day i use electrolyte packs halfway into my route. Ive been fine ever since.

  12. I’ve been searching up on this because i drink like a gallon of water a day or at least 7-8 small bottles a day and still not hydrated. Thanks for touching on this subject, doctor.

  13. My sister,a diabetic, thought drinking a lot of water would help her kidneys, however, too much water caused her to flush out just about all of her sodium. She almost died from electrolyte imbalance before she even knew what was wrong with her. Thank God she found out before it was too late.

    • OMG 😲, I’m A Diabetic And I Try To Drink Two 64 Oz. Of Water A Day, One 64oz In The Morning, And One 64oz In The Evening.

    • ​@Donald ReedI drink almost zero water per year…and get almost all fluids through daily foods, milk, coffee, pure orange juice and beer. I also add zero salt to my meals.

    • @GLOBETROTTER Would probably be good to dilute orange/other juices with added water. Dehydration is also bad. In fact, if your coffee is caffeinated, beware.

      “The caffeine in coffee… causes your body to pass more urine,” a further dehydration risk factor. – GoodRx

  14. I just did this the other day and it was no fun I felt more dehydrated after drinking 4 bottles of water 💦 after I was out in the sun for 4 hours Thank you for the valuable information much appreciated Dr Berg ❤✌️

  15. I found that about 16 oz carbonated water with lemon juice and electrolytes hydrates me quite well and quenches my thirst.
    Thanks for your podcasts Dr Berg .
    Much appreciated

  16. I also started to put a pinch of pink salt to the first bottle of water (or glass) I have each morning. Made a huge difference. I wasn’t peeing every 20 minutes which I found very annoying and prevented me from drinking water sometimes when for example, if I had an hour meeting or longer. Now I understand why it worked better with this video

  17. Don’t know about you guys but whenever I drink 5-6 ltrs/day+ I feel great, focused, no brain fog, motivated. I always felt the 2-4 ltrs was never enough for me

    Edit: maybe my diet already has too much salt
