Are you chronically dehydrated? As the industry releases more choices when it comes to quenching our thirst, I find that the ratio of those suffering from illnesses is a result of chronic dehydration. Many people simply do not meet their daily water requirements. Water is the main substance and source of life it is integral to my body’s function and performance. The fact is nutrients I take from food sources do not have any inherent energy value until they are dissolved in water.

My cells are powered by water by generating electrical and magnetic energy inside every one of my trillion cells mitochondria or energy factors. When I take in water my cells are able to maintain their proper structure. When my DNA is damaged which is a part of every cell in the body it can cause abnormal cell behavior. Cellular abnormalities are a known cause of cancer and other serious medical conditions. As I drink water it enables proper physiological function aiding in things such as:

  • Joint lubrication
  • Immune function
  • Liver and Kidney function
  • Muscle Function
  • Proper production of hormones and neurotransmitters
  • Skin maintenance
  • Respiration
  • Lymphatic function
  • Regulation of body temperature (via perspiration)

It’s important to understand that insufficient amounts of this liquid can take its toll on my internal balance. It’s important to realize that many serious health problems are related to water deficit. Consuming the proper amount of water can treat a number of conditions including:

  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety
  • Depression, Stress
  • Asthma
  • Back, joint, and muscle pain
  • Fatigue 
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Memory problems
  • Respiratory and sinus problems
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Lupus
  • Blood clots 
  • Kidney stones

Some clients can’t carry out activities efficiently when their body has been denied adequate amounts of water for a prolonged period. I must consistently hydrate the body throughout the day with the proper water intake. This can be done by drinking half of my body weight in water. An example of this would be someone who weighs 140 lbs. the appropriate water intake would be 70 ounces per day.

Many believe that a dry mouth or extreme thirst is the best way to determine whether their body is water deprived. Surprisingly a dry mouth is the last outward sign of chronic dehydration. Why? The body generates feelings of thirst long after my body’s water supply has fallen below the level needed for optimal functioning. It is important to remember that a well-hydrated body produces clear urine, a slightly moderately de-hydrated body produces bright yellow urine, and lastly a body that is chronically de-hydrated produces urine that appears orange/dark-colored.

Keep in mind if I am consuming vitamins or other natural supplements, they can change the color of my urine. The pH strip test is a great way to test the Alkaline balance of my health to ensure that it is within a healthy range. The pH strip test can be purchased at many local drug stores. If my pH reading is consistently within the range of 7.0 to 7.5 then I know my body is in a fairly healthy state of acid-alkaline balance. There are powerful health benefits linked to consuming Ionized H2O. Onward and upward to a healthier way of living! I believe in you!
