A simple analogy would be a car that ran on the perfect engine oil and gas, one that would cause absolutely no friction and where the waste was non-existent; there would be no reason for the working parts in the car to wear out and breakdown and the engine could run forever. The human body works in exactly the same way.
Eastern medicines and philosophies view the body as a harmonious balance of functions and energies. The thinking is that disease only occurs when an imbalance is present.

Pregnant women need to drink extra water. They must take care of the needs of the fetus and compensate for the extra fluid losses from additional perspiration and heat production. If a woman is lactating she needs extra water for fluid replacement from nursing.
Any beverage that contains alcohol or caffeine should not be counted toward your 8 glasses. This is because alcohol and caffeine will dehydrate your body, and you will need to compensate for this.
