Dr. Murad (yes, he of the amazing skin care line) is about to release a new book, The Water Secret. I have to admit, I first heard about this water theory of his (during a bloggers' tour of Murad in the summer of 2008), I was a bit skeptical. Something about the water content of our bodies changing as we age (this is true, the water content of a baby is different than a toddler than a teen than your 80 year old grandma), and that this was related to aging. Truly, this was about all that was mentioned on the tour and I was thinking this sounded a bit strange.

Fast forward a few years, and Dr. Murad has released a book about his theory. I have an advance copy and while I haven't read it yet (truthfully, I've been a bit busy studying for Critical Care Boards in a few months and being a pregnant sleepy person), I have skimmed it and the bits of it I've read do make sense. There's a lot in there about improving your diet by increasing fruits and veggies, paying attention to your body's signals, etc. All of that sounds good to me. Hopefully I'll have a chance to read more of the book soon, but already I admit that it isn't as new-age as it all sounds. Really, it sounds just like improving your life style.

If you're interested in learning more about his theory and how you could change your habits, Dr. Murad will be holding a webinar on September 22nd at 11AM PST (2PM EST). Murad is offering a special promotion for Webinar attendees. Those who pre-order a copy of the book will receive a bonus size AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (The cleanser is worth $62, I used to use it a few years ago and I really loved it. I have a tube of it in my skin care stash that I pull out every now and then, I definitely recommend checking it out).

You can register for the webinar and pre-order your book (with free cleanser) HERE

I did get a free copy of Dr. Murad's book
