Importance of Water and Health
Water was once considered the most sacred of elements.
Here I will talk about the Importance of Water in our life and about the connection between water and health.
Our focus on the role of water in living systems is greater today than at any other time in recent history.
Water and its relationship to our physical health and our Wellbeing are very important issues in this modern age.
This is most probably something that almost everybody knows.
However, there is a difference between what we know and what we actually apply in our life. Moreover, I will share some information here with you that you might not be aware of.
The way I see it, the main reason the importance of water has become an issue in this modern age is the fact that many people drink hardly enough of it or sometimes, none at all.
It's a common mistake to think that tea, coffee, alcohol and manufactured beverages are substitutes for the purely natural water need of the body. It's true, those do contain some water, but they also contain dehydration agents, that get rid of both the water they are dissolved in and then some more water from the reserve of the body.
I think I can safely estimate that today, the majority of people make this mistake and assume that it does not matter what you drink, as long as you drink. You might be thinking "Can you blame me? come and try the municipal or city tap water in my home..."
That's another major incentive for people to avoid drinking water. By the time water get to our tap, they lose any resemblance to the water that bubbles and cascades over the rocks and pebbles of a mountain stream. It's most likely that if all of us did have this kind of water available to us daily, the importance of water and health would not be an issue at all
(and I will give you a hint... it is absolutely possible...).
Now, for that information I mentioned I will share, that goes a bit deeper than what most people are aware of. Information on the importance of water to your wellbeing and on the damaging effects of chronic dehydration to the body, from childhood to old age.
Did you know that it is chronic water shortage in the body that causes most of the diseases of the human body?
Water makes up 75% of our bodies.
With that in mind it's easy to understand that water is the primary substance and the leading agent in the routine events that take place in the human body.
Most people don't even give it a thought, but if the body is mainly water, where will it get its top-up if we don’t drink water on a regular basis?
Water is not just good for the body, it is essential to our physical health.
You can find all this information and much more in a great book called "Your Body’s Many Cries For Water" by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
Basically this is a preventative and self-educational manual for those who prefer to adhere to the logic of the natural and the simple in medicine.
The author also has a website you can look at called
(opens new window) and his aim is to give the public information on chronic dehydration, so they can understand the profoundness of the indispensable role of water in the human body.
I strongly encourage you to further educate yourself on this material, especially if your physical health is not a hundred percent.
To learn how you can TRANSFORM your tap water to
"the water that bubbles and cascades over the rocks and pebbles of a mountain stream"...
