People drink a lots of coffee, tea, and sodas containing caffeine, that prompts the human's body to lose water. More troubling is so happening such a when we are dehydrated, we do not know what to drink.
The answer is simple: drink water!
Water is pure liquid refreshment and accounts for a large amount of what makes everyone of us "human." The average 150 lb. adult organism contains 40 to 50 quarts of water. Almost 2/3rds of our body weight is "water weight":
* Bones is 22% water
* Blood is 83% water
* Brain is 74% water * Muscles are 75% water
The Fountain of Beauty, Youth, Health, and Everything Else that's Good
The source of life - Water - is necessary for your human's body to digest and absorb vitamins and nutrients. It as well detoxifies the liver and kidneys, and carries away garbage from the body. And when it comes to digestion . . . it is just not occur without water. Fibre only cannot aid ideal digestive function by itself. In fact, without water as its partner, fibre goes bad, results in constipation and terrible discomfort.
If you are dehydrated, your blood is literally thicker, and your organism has to push much harder to cause it to circulate. As a result, the brain becomes much less active, it is hard to concentrate, your body feels fatigued, and you simply "poop out."
Water - The Miracle Worker
Simple water -- when it is pure and without any contaminants -- is really a "wonder drug." Free of chemicals, additives, or anything and everything unnatural, a solid dose of 8 glasses of water a day (ideally half of a person's weight in ounces of water) will:
* Allow for proper Digestion
* Help to keep you more Alkaline
* Help You Lose Weight
* Improve Your Energy
* Increase Your Mental and Physical Performance
* Keep Skin Healthy, Beautiful and Glowing
* Remove Toxins & Waste Products from your body
* Reduce Headaches and Dizziness
Drinking Water is Heart-Healthy
The findings of a six-year clinical study of a large group of 20,000 healthy people men and women aged 38-100 in the May 1, 2002 American Journal of Epidemiology discover that women who drank five glasses of water a day or more got 41% relatively lower expectation to die of a heart attack during the study time than persons who drank two glasses or less. The protective influence of water was much greater in men.
Drinking Water and Weight Loss
Water is a well known and natural appetite suppressant, so developing a great water drinking habit can be a consistent aid in achieving and maintaining a decent weight. Doctor F. Batmanghelidj MD, author of "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" reports most times your "hunger" is your body begging for water - not food.
It's also extremely important to remember that when the person's organism is dehydrated, fat cells get "rubbery" and cannot be merely metabolized. This explains why it's harder to get rid of unwanted pounds when you don't drink your water.
Water and Your Skin
According to dr. F. Batmanghelidj MD, author of "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" our skin is a great indicator of dehydration. If the skin is nice and loose and smooth, then we are hydrated. If it becomes creasy and shriveled, it means dehydration. The crow's feet on the face of elderly people, that's a sign of dehydration. The turkey neck under the chin is a sign of dehydration. These are mentioned in my books, Your Body's Many Cries for Water, and also in my Water For Health, For Healing, For Life. I recommend everyone to read Water Cures, Drugs Kill, because in this book I've identified over 90 health problems that we in medicine have called disease, and yet water cures them.
Who Can Benefit From A Water Regimen?
Everybody . . . including Me and YOU!
Water is very important for pregnant women and nursing mothers. For athletes and work-out fanatics, drinking water reduces cardiovascular load and improves performance. And, because water lowers person temperature, it leads the overall exercise procedure safer and more effective.
Water is in addition an important "healing tool" for people with a history of kidney stones. Since water dissolves calcium in the urine, downing at the very least 8 glasses daily decreases the likelihood of stone formation. Drinking water is also important in preventing urinary tract infections in both men and for women, flushing impurities out of the system.
When your organism is hydrated, drainage from allergies and colds does not stick and amass in your throat and lungs, and your cough is much more "productive". Even cold sores that show up on the lips are minimized by drinking water because those eruptions have a tendency to favour dry places on the body.
Practical Ways for Drinking Water
I can appreciate how hard it can be to remember to drink enough water every day, but I also know how hard it can be to return from the effects of being even mildly dehydrated. So I want to share a few easy information how to achieve and maintain your "water mark" each day:
* You are naturally thirsty i.e. "dehydrated" in the morning . . . bless your organism and flush out the toxins it has continued processing all night and take advantage of the thirst to get a "leg up" on your daily water requirements by drinking a glass of water first thing.
* If you are cold drink warm water instead of dehydrating coffee & tea.
* Don't wait until you are thirsty to have a drink - you are right now dehydrated if you feel thirsty.
* Set a timer to remind yourself to demonstrate a habit of drinking water and carry on a bottle of water with you at all times.
* Compensate for diuretics . . . thieves which steal water from you. If you drink coffee, tea, or sodas containing caffeine, you'll want to drink a few supplementary glasses of water to add up for the water these type of diuretic beverages "leech" from your system.
Some Additional Tips For Healthy Hydration From dr. Batmanghelidj MD:
* Start your morning's right: Morning is when you are most full of toxin and dehydrated. Reach for a big glass of water first thing in the morning even before coffee. This water in the morning really gets the blood flowing.
* Drink a glass of water when you get up and another when you go to bed.
* Take regular water break breaks.
* Avoid relying on sodas to provide your fluid need.
* Drink water before and after food; ideally drink a glass of water half an hour before you eat your meal and half an hour after the meal. You can drink water with meals, and drink water anytime your body feels like it.
* It is very important you balance your sodium intake with your water consumption. Take 1/4 teaspoon of salt per quart of water - every 4-5 glasses of water. Be sure to get sea salt. The best is Celtic sea salt or Himalayan sea salt, both of which are readily available at any health food store.
* You should always drink water prior to eating, and after eating, to support the digestive process. The stomach depends on water to help digest food, and lack of water makes it harder for nutrients to be broken down and used as energy. The liver, which dictates where all nutrients go, also needs water to help convert stored fat into usable energy. If you are dehydrated, the kidneys turn to the liver for backup, diminishing the liver's ability to metabolize stored fat. The resulting reduced blood volume will interfere with your body's ability to remove toxins and supply your cells with adequate nutrients.
* Keep a water bottle by your side at all the times. Use either bottled water or tap water, and carry it with you everywhere, to the gym, in your car, to your office. Start by adding water to your daily regiment, during the first week, and then incorporate more as needed. The point is not to wait until you're thirsty to drink.
* Keep water flowing before, during and after workout. Don't forget to balance your water intake with sodium intake. Drink at least 1 litre of water for every 60 minutes of exercise. Drink more if it's hot. During exercise, such as playing sport on a hot summer day, you can lose up to 2 litres per hour of fluid per hour. Water and a balance salt is your best bet to keep healthy and hydrated. During exercise, it is recommended to replenish fluid at least every 20 minutes.
More Advise From dr. Batmanghelidj MD
How Do You Get Dehydrated?
Through activities of daily living, the average person loses about 3- 4 litres (about 10-15 cups) of fluid a day in sweat, urine, exhaled air and bowel movement. What is lost must be replaced by the water/ fluid we drink and the food we eat.
We lose approximately 1-2 litres of water just from breathing. The evaporation of sweat from the skin accounts for 90% of our cooling ability.
Exercise, sweating, diarrhoea, temperature, or altitude can significantly increase the amount of water we lose each day. The most common cause of increased water loss is exercise and sweating. Even though we are all at risk of dehydration the people most vulnerable are infants, elderly adults, and athletes. They are either not able to adequately express their thirst sensation or able to detect it and do something in time.
How Do You Know If You're Dehydrated?
If you are thirsty, it means your cells are already dehydrated. A dry mouth should be regarded as the last outward sign of dehydration. That's because thirst does not develop until body fluids are depleted well bellow levels required for optimal functioning. Monitor your urine to make sure you are not dehydrated:
A hydrated body produces clear, colourless urine.
A somewhat dehydrated body produces yellow urine.
A severely dehydrated body produces orange or dark-coloured urine.
The effects of even mild dehydration include decreased coordination, fatigue, dry skin, decreased urine output, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, blood pressure changes and impairment of judgment. Stress, headache, back pain, allergies, asthma, high blood pressure and many degenerative health problems are the result of UCD (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration).
How Much Water Do You Need To Drink? When To Drink?
To better determine how much water you need each day, divide your body weight in half. The answer is the approximate number of water ounces you should drink daily. You should drink half of your body weight in ounces. If you weight 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces water (3.13 quarts, 2.98 litres or about 10-12 cups of water a day). If you weigh closer to 100 pounds you will need only about 50 ounces of water or about four 12-ounce glasses daily.
Individuals who are physically active or live in hot climates may needs to drink more.
What Should We Drink? What Shouldn't We Drink?
We are designed to drink pure, natural water.
Avoiding sodas/soft drinks to provide your fluid needs. The high sugar content and artificial flavours in soft drinks are harmful to your health.
Tea, coffee, soft drinks contain water, but the diuretics contained in these caffeinated beverages flush water out of your body. Don't count on them to replenish fluid loss.
It is OK to drink them occasionally, but if you drink them constantly and don't drink enough pure natural water, then you are severely compromising your long-term health.
Natural pure water is the best choice. If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle and long-term health, make water a habit and a priority in your life.
Can We Drink Too Much Water?
During intense exercise the kidneys cannot excrete excess water. The extra water moves into the cells, including brain cells. The result can be fatal. For that reason, athletes should estimate how much they should drink by weighing themselves before and after long training runs to see how much they lose, and thus how much water and salt they should replace.
The studies that found 13% of the runners tested drank too much water, resulting in abnormally low blood sodium levels. The low sodium levels made many of these people very sick, and close to the point of death. The importance lesson here is to balance your water intake with your sodium intake.
How Do You Know If Your Tap Water Is Safe To Drink?
Almost all-municipal water in is of high quality and very drinkable. The best source of specific information about the water quality in your area is your local water supplier. Water suppliers are required to send their customer an annual water quality report. Contact your water supplier to get a copy, or see if your report is posted on line.
It is important you know your local sources of water quality, and the quality of your local drinking water. To get facts and information about your tap water, drinking water standards and contaminants, contact your local water supplier. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and American Water Works Association (AWWA) are the two credible institutions that provide information you need regarding quality of your water.
Bottled water's biggest advantage is convenience. The Americans now drink more water from bottles than any other nation. Bottled water in is a $16 billion-a-year industry.
EPA sets standards for tap water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets bottled water standards based on EPA's tap water standards.
Most bottled water is simply tap water put through conditioning filters to make it taste better. Pepsi's Aquafina and Coco-Cola's Dasani are both made from purified tap water.
This doesn't make it bad, but is something to consider when adding up cost and benefits.
Bottled water is safe to drink if it meets the standards. Contrary to popular belief the FDA does not carefully regulate the bottled water industry; therefore even bottled water can be impure unless it is the right kind of water. There are indeed many right kinds of high-quality bottled water that come from great natural water sources, such as spring, glacier, mineral water. High-quality bottled water may be a desirable option for people with special health needs and those who can afford the price.
Just make sure your choice of water does not become a limiting factor to drinking it. If you are drinking less water because of the cost of bottled water, supplement your bottles with reusable bottles or just fill up a previously used bottle with H20 from the tap.
What About Filter And Filtered Water?
It is always wise to get a filter if you are not sure how safe your tap water is. There are many water filter products on the market at many different prices. To shop for a good filter, you need to know what a filter factually reduces, or removes, and what it costs. Ideally, you want water that has been filtered via a reverse osmosis process that removes chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, chlorine, fluoride, bacteria, and viruses.
About Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, M.D., an internationally renowned researcher, author and advocate of the natural healing power of water. Dr. F. Batmaghelidj wrote his first self-help book "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" in 1992, in which he stated that a dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of dehydration. The body signals its water shortage by producing pain. Dehydration actually produces pain and many degenerative diseases, including asthma, arthritis, hypertension, angina, adult-onset diabetes, lupus and multiple sclerosis. Dr. B's message to the world is, "You are not sick, you are thirsty. Don't treat thirst with medication."
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj devoted the last 20 years of his life promoting public awareness of the healing powers of water. He appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs and lectured around the world. He has left a body of valuable works of six books and more than a dozen educational audio and video seminars. His work has created an international community that has embraced the natural healing of the water cure. His ground-breaking book "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" has been translated into 15 languages and continues to inspire readers all over the world.

NO SUBSTITUTE FOR WATER
Mike: I have a question for you on water -- a lot of people think that they are hydrating themselves when they consume soft drinks or milk or Gatorade or all these other liquid beverages.
Dr. B: Gatorade is possibly okay, but Gatorade has sugar in it, and it's not particularly good for people who might even get hypoglycemic, or might induce insulin secretion, and that insulin secretion will produce more hunger and they overeat. But as a temporary sport drink, it's okay when you're in the middle of a golf game to drink a Gatorade. It immediately gives you a bit of the minerals that you probably will have lost sweating.

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX
Mike: What it is that drove you to explore beyond the limited thinking of conventional medicine?
Dr. B: I'm always a curious person. I've been a curious person ever since I was born as far as I know. One day we had a thief come into the house and was on the wall, and I was only a two and a half year old boy. I went to him and said, "What are you doing here? Can't you see you're scaring everyone? Why don't you go?" I wasn't scared, I was curious.
That is what I am, right throughout my life, and that is why when I discovered that water cures pain, then this was an entrance for me to get into it and find out what was the reason. And that was when I discovered that my education was no good. I didn't learn medicine, I learned a little bit of anatomy and a little bit of histology, which stood me in good stead in order to understand the rest of the stuff. CLICK HERE...
Drink Water -The Dangers of Dehydration
by Andreas Moritz
The human body is composed of 75 percent water and 25 percent solid matter. To provide nourishment, eliminate waste and conduct all the trillions of activities in the body, we need water. Most modern societies, however, no longer stress the importance of drinking water as the most important "nutrient" among nutrients. Entire population groups are substituting water with tea, coffee, alcohol and other manufactured beverages. Many people don't realize that the natural thirst signal of the body is a sign that it requires pure, plain drinking water. Instead, they opt for other beverages in the belief that this will satisfy the body's water requirements. Read More ...
Drink Water -The Dangers of Dehydration (Part II)

THE STRESS RESPONSE
When dehydrated, the body has to put up the fight of a lifetime -- similar to the one experienced during a famine or a "fight or flight" situation. It responds to such a crisis by mobilizing several powerful hormones, including adrenalin, endorphins, cortisone, prolactin, vasopressin, and Renin-Angiotensin (RA). Endorphins, for example, help us to withstand pain and stress and allow the body to continue most of its activities. Cortisone orders the mobilization of stored energies and essential raw materials to supply the body with energy and basic nutrients during the crisis. Read More in Part 2...
Drink Water -The Dangers of Dehydration (Part III)
by Andreas Moritz
The kidneys truly are the body's "master chemists." They not only remove waste products and excess fluids from the body via the urine, but they also maintain a critical balance of salt, potassium and acid -- not a small feat for such relatively small organs. The kidneys produce a hormone -- erythropoietin (EPO) -- that stimulates the production of red blood cells. Other kidney hormones help regulate blood pressure and calcium metabolism. The kidneys even synthesize the hormones that control tissue growth. When the kidneys become damaged, other organs suffer as well. Read More in Part3...
