In this episode of the New York magazine podcast, the guys talk about how to avoid the scary-sounding “holy water” that some people use as a drinking water source.

In the case of “holy drinking water,” this includes using tap water for a while to see if your symptoms resolve.

“What you want to do is, as soon as you start to get the symptoms, stop drinking,” says the show’s host, Dr. Jason Gutterman.

“I’ve had people drink for weeks, months, even years.”

But even if you’re not worried about a potential health hazard, this is a good way to stay hydrated.

In fact, drinking tap water is often the only way to drink purified water, which is the reason why you may see a water bottle on a shelf.

If you’re concerned about the water bottle, you can also buy an automatic water filter or even a bottled water dispenser.

This is a great time to talk to your doctor.

You’ll learn how to prevent and treat symptoms of hyponatremia and electrolyte imbalances in your body, and how to treat any symptoms that aren’t completely relieved with your own medicine.

Dr. Guttermann also shares some tips for staying hydrated during a busy time.

We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did creating it.
