♥ HEALING STRONG PRACTICAL TIP:  Are you drinking enough water?  Source of information: “Fit for Life” by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond.

Just how does your body use water? Why is it water you need and not all those other liquids?

Well, fluid intake and water intake belong in two separate categories. Your body consists of 75% water, not fluids, while your blood is 90% water.

What does your body do with this water? It is used in kidney excretion, respiration, sweat digestion, and elimination. All of this requires a minimum of 3 quarts daily. If you aren’t drinking at least this amount of water a day you could be suffering from dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration are feeling thirsty, dry mouth/throat, chapped lips, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, muscle cramps/stiffness, water retention, irregular heart rhythms, constipation, mental confusion, cloudy, strong-smelling urine.

A common complaint of drinking large quantities of water is the inconvenience of “living in the bathroom”. If you are not urinating every 3 hours, you are not clearing your urinary tract. This may seem an inconvenience, but it takes commitment to care for yourself.

Let’s discuss those “other” fluids you may drink. Coffee, tea, and soft drinks make the pH level of the blood more acidic. To counteract, the kidneys release more fluid to balance the pH level. The end result is a greater loss of water and dehydration. So for every ounce of “other” liquid you drink, you need to consume twice that amount of water to bring the body back into balance.

Your water should be spring water, alkaline or reverse osmosis. Tap water has all the chemicals including fluoride, lead & copper, and antibiotics just to name a few.

Don’t leave home without your water!
