Drinking water is a powerful, healing necessity that is a daily requirement!
Making up over two thirds of the human body, water is essential to the proper growth and thriving of any life. Literally, without it, the body dies...just think, if you stop watering your plant - it dies!
Our lives depend on it...all internal organs and body functioning, such as liver, heart, stomach, eyes, intestines, and mood, and so on rely on water in order to function well.
Because we're all built in different sizes, the amount necessary for each individual is different. It's recommended that you drink 1/2 your body's weight in ounces.
For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, 75 ounces of water is what your body requires to be hydrated and nourish your physical, emotional, and mental health.
Dehydration happens when the body loses more fluid than what goes in. It has been stated that 80% of society is dehydrated.
Rule number one for identifying dehydration is thirst. If you're feeling thirsty, you're already dehydrated.
Possible signs of dehydration include:
Dark color around the skin of the eyes
Onset of illness
Dehydration also affects cognition, concentration, and our ability to think clearly. It also can affect how we choose to respond in our daily lives when interacting with others - the family, colleagues, ourselves, anyone. When dehydrated, one may be quick to react (in fear), instead of respond (in love).
The above may also indicate other challenges within the body.
"Water" with fructose and minerals in it, is not pure water. The body has to process the fructose and minerals, instead of experiencing the natural cleansing and hydrating of pure water throughout the entire body.
Benefits of daily, appropriate water consumption include:
Removing waste and toxins from the body
Improves heart health, resulting in stronger energy and circulation
Assists in balancing your emotions and mental health
Promotes healthy skin
Assists in keeping the body more alkaline, instead of acidic
Improves dental health
Increases recovery from illness
Encourage drinking clean, pure water everyday as a commitment within your home, and remember to send your kids back to school with their own proper water bottle and water.
