Water is the basis for life. It is second only to oxygen in importance for health, making up to 75% of the body. Every cell depends on water to perform its essential functions.
Proper hydration allows the body to:
- Flush toxins.
- Maintain system equilibrium (balance).
- Support brain function.
- Maintain hormone balance.
- Perform metabolic processes (including fat metabolism).
- Achieve healthy skin.
- Transport life-giving vitamins and minerals.
- Support the integrity of muscle, joint, and bone in our bodies.
When we adequately hydrate our bodies we perform at our physiological peak.
To insure we are getting enough of this life promoting fluid, take your weight and divide by two. That number is the goal (in ounces) to give your body pure spring water daily.
Perhaps your resolution is to maintain a healthier weight. Follow this prescription for water wellness to insure proper waste elimination, fat breakdown efficiency, and metabolic balance. Please don't wait until you are thirsty. By then it is too late! By the time your brain signals "thirst" you may be down over a quart of this precious fluid! Carry a liter of pure spring water everywhere you go to remind you to drink throughout the day. As a practitioner of holistic medicine I know you need excellent water to support your healthy way.
Symptoms of dehydration are:
- Weight Gain
- Water Retention
- Skin Blemishes
- Bladder Infections
Yours in optimum wellness,
