Body of Water – A Common and Underutilized Treatment For Health
Of course you know by now how important nerve supply is to a functioning body. Nerve supply is what allows every single cell in your body to communicate. Nerve supply relays critical information to and from the brain that allows us to repair, heal and protect ourselves from every day stress. Like Nerve Supply, water is critical for cell to cell communication because it acts as a medium for the nerve signals.
The Percentage of Water in Different Parts of Our Body:
Many Conditions We Suffer from are Made Worse from Dehydration
Because water is so vital for cell function – many of the conditions that we suffer from on a day to day basis come from dehydration. Some of the more common symptoms related to dehydration include: Headaches, Migraines, Fatigue, Muscle Spasm, Digestive Disorders, Mood Swings and Depression, Generalized Pain and aches and even Hunger! The most common thing I hear when bringing up water is “That’s all I drink doc!”
True, you might only be drinking water, but are you drinking enough? The amount of water we should be drinking daily is ½ our body weight in ounces. You very well could be drinking only water, but is it enough to keep you healthy?
We continually lose water through several biological processes.
Every day we are losing water. From breathing to sweating and urinating the we water we consume is used up just like the gas you put into your car. Therefore, in order to maintain a healthy state of hydration, we need to continuously replenish what we lose.
Another important concept is the idea of toxicity.
The Solution to Our Body’s Pollution is Dilution!
By drinking enough water, you can make sure that your body’s natural detoxification processes work. By drinking enough water, you will dilute harmful toxins that are almost impossible for us to eliminate!
Tips to Keep You Healthy & Hydrated
- Keep a water bottle with you at all times. A good stainless steel bottle can be used indefinitely.
- Filter your water. The public water supply is filled with chlorine, heavy metals, pharmaceutical run off as well as other contaminants.
- Take frequent sips and try to practice “slow, steady saturation” of water rather than huge gulps one at a time.
- Eat plenty of foods that are high in water content: VEGGIES!
- Increase water intake in the summer and/or when you’re stepping up your workouts.
Remember: Drink ½ Your Body Weight in Ounces to achieve health!
