Did you know that:
WATER very well could be The Miracle Cure for your health needs?
Water is the single most important nutrient we give our bodies. We can live up to 7 weeks without food, but did you know that we can only live 3 to 5 days without water? Why? Because our body, as well as each of our organs are dependent upon water.
God created our bodies like finely tuned machines created with such precision that it still boggles the minds of scientists.
Think of this: The human brain has 4 million pain sensors, 500,000 touch detectors, and 200,000 temperature gauges. Your eyes have 100 million receptors giving you the ability to see things with incredible 3D clarity. Your ears have 24,000 fibers that vibrate giving you the ability to hear. Your body is made up of 500 muscles, 200 bones, and 7 miles of nerve fibers. Your heart beats 36,000,000 times per year and you have over 60,000 miles of veins and capillaries running through your body.
What an incredible idea to give us such amazing bodies to carry out our purpose on earth.
Your body is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to God!
Before we were married 13 years ago, my husband was a body builder and a major water fanatic.
When I would complain about a headache, he would say, "Have you been drinking enough water today?"
When I would have muscle cramps or leg aches, he would reply, "Have you been drinking enough water?"
If I told him I was nauseated, again, he would say..."Have you been drinking enough water?"
He was starting to sound like a broken record and I grew so tired of his "water is the cure-all" theory that I decided to start my own "water for good health" research. And, to my amazement, I found out he was right all along! My life was enlightened by the fact that my body was not craving Tylenol when I had a headache.
It was not craving Motrin when I had cramps. And it was not craving Advil when my legs were achy. On the contrary, what my body was crying out for was pure, clean H2O.
Last month, we headed out on a road trip and saw the engine light come on. As we proceeded to the nearest service station, my husband lifted the hood to see what might be wrong, and found that our vehicle was low on oil. With just an addition of oil, we were back on our way -- a simple and quick fix! If we had not paid attention to the "warning sign" -- the engine light coming on -- our engine could have completely seized up resulting in costly repairs, precious time lost and frustration that we didn't take proper care of our vehicle.
Much like that engine light of our car, our bodies act the same way. When it is deficient of water, our body's primary nutrient, it begins to flash warning signals called SYMPTOMS. Whether your symptoms are headaches, body aches, muscle pain, arthritis, migraines, skin problems, digestive problems or many other physical challenges, your answer may not require you checking into the local hospital. Before you give your next paycheck to the local pharmacist, try reloading your body with pure, clean water.
Your body is made up of about 70% water.
Your brain cells are about 80% water
Water increases the efficiency of your immune system
Water prevents clogging of the arteries, helping to reduce the risk of heart attacks
Because water is directly connected to brain function, it can help prevent A.D.D.
Water could provide greater benefits to asthmatics than their inhaler or pills.
And if that doesn't sell you on grabbing a nice glass of water bythe time you finish reading this blog, then here's a real clincher! Water reduces the effects of aging and
can greatly increase weight-loss!
The majority of all Americans are incredibly deficient in water.
Often symptoms of disease are the first signal of your body needing more water.
Your body loses about 2 quarts of water a day through perspiration, urination, and exhalation.
Water dehydration = painful symptoms
Good News: Instead of giving up on living a life of vitality and wellness, start with the core fundamental to nutrition and that is to boost your water supply. Water, very well, could be your miracle cure!
How much water should you drink? You should take in enough water that equates to 1/2 your weight in ounces. That would mean that if you are 140 pounds, you need to intake 70 ounces of water per day. If you weigh 200 pounds you would need to intake 100 ounces per day. This amount may startle you and chances are you aren't hitting that mark. If you're not drinking enough water, chances are your body is dehydrated and symptoms could already be occurring in your body that are telling you to take heed of the warning signs that your body needs more water.
When our vehicle's engine light came on, we proceeded as quickly as possible to the nearest service station to replenish it of its most required and vital liquid to getting it functioning properly once again. If there are warning signs (unhealthy symptoms) that you are experiencing in your body, I urge you to proceed as quickly as possible to a good source of PH balanced water and give your body the fuel it needs to maintain wellness.
