- 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (This probably applies to half of the world’s population)
- In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
- Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 3%.
- One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of thedieters studied in a U-Washington study.
- Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
- Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
- A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
- Drinking just 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%… plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
- It can be said that the chemistry of life is water chemistry. For the body to function properly, it must be hydrated properly. Moreover, the qualities and properties of the water we drink can determine the quality of our health.Water adjusts the body’s temperature and assists in digestion. It removes toxins from the body and also makes necessary body fluids. The chemical reactions that support life take place in a water medium, with water being an important reactant or product of these reactions.
- The adult human body is made up of 60-75% water.
- The brain is made up of about 80 – 85% water.
- Blood, which carries nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, is about 90% water.
Our brains are approximately 80 – 85% water. Keep in mind that when we are born our bodies are 90% water and 10% matter. As an aging adult, our bodies begin losing water, dehydration sets in, and hydration falls to about 70% water and 30% matter. Upon death, the body is only 50% water! In reality we die of dehydration!
The average adult male or female is approximately 43 to 45 liters of water.
These waters need to be filtered and eliminated and replenished daily. If they are not, the rivers, steams and oceans of our body become polluted with digestive, respiratory and metabolic acids. When these acids build up we experience the symptoms of dehydration that we call disease.
Just because someone doesn’t realize they’re thirsty does not mean they are not thirsty. The body adjusts and goes into a masking phenomenon that leaves the body dehydrated.
It is important to understand that because of this gradually failing thirst sensation, our body becomes chronically and increasingly dehydrated from an early adult age. With increase in age, the water content of the cells of the body decreases, to the point that the ratio of the volume of body water that is inside the cells to that which is outside the cells changes from a 1.1 to almost 0.8.
This is a very drastic change and causes one to further lose their desire for hydration.
It is the loss of water volume held inside the cells of the body, which causes a reduction in the thirst sensation! As a result, chronic dehydration sets in – which causes symptoms that equal disease when the variety of emergency signals of dehydration are not understood.
As our bodies become more and more dehydrated (and polluted by the things we put in our bodies, the integrity of the fluids inside and outside our cells is compromised…and just like a fish in a fish bowl, our cells begin to get sick and fail, and so does our health!
Try to visualize your cells as a fish in a fish bowl: Just like the fish is only as healthy as the water it swims in…
The cell is only as healthy as the fluids it’s bathed in!
Chronic dehydration manifests itself as sickness and premature aging. When the human body is dehydrated, it begins to pull water from its organs and tissues.
Lack of energy and constant exhaustion are the results of even mild dehydration. Other results of dehydration include allergies, angina, asthma, colitis, constipation, depression, high blood pressure, mental fogginess, migraine headache, multiple sclerosis, obesity, and rheumatoid arthritis, – just to name a few.
Question…How much water do you drink everyday?
Not coffee, tea or soda – we are talking about water in the purest form. Coffee, tea, soft drinks, and even alcoholic beverages do contain water, but they also contain chemicals and additives harmful to your body. These are not substitutes for water and they do not hydrate and cleanse your body like pure water.
“The key to a long life is to maintain the integrity of the internal fluids of the body by a process of hydrating with alkaline fluids. I believe this can be accomplished by drinking a minimum of 1 liter of alkaline water per 30 lb of body weight.” Dr. Dave Carpenter
It is obvious that both the quality and the quantity of your water intake have a significant effect on your physical and mental health.
Kangen WaterTM hexagonal water is the highest grade of alkaline ionized water available…
Listen to your body and hydrate yourself from the cellular level. The best way to do this is with Kangen WaterTM , as it is the most hydrating water available due in part to its smaller clusters of water molecules.
The ionization process creates clusters of water molecules roughly one third of their normal size. These smaller water clusters are more easily absorbed by your body and help transport vitamins, minerals, and nutrients at a much faster rate…up to 6 times faster!
