The importance of drinking water!

HEEELLLOOOOOO… Can you hear me? This is your body speaking. In a recent class with Jim Self (Mastering Alchemy), I heard him talk about the importance of Water!! Especially as we are IN the SHIFT. As your body, I thought I would add my two cents worth as well.

WATER is very important to me and vital to our overall health and well-being. My human body is anywhere from 55% to 78% water depending on my size. I am proud to say that 2/3 of my body is comprised of this glorious nutrient making it my main component. Did you know that 90% of my brain consists of water, so when I have a headache the first thing I really want is my main ingredient? My tissues and organs are mainly water as well. Here is my breakdown:

* my Muscle consists of 75% water
* my Brain 90% water
* my Bone 22% water, with
* my Blood consisting of 83% water

By drinking a healthy amount of water on a daily basis I can assist you with things like fat metabolism or the relief of muscle cramps. When you give me my ‘elixir’ I am pretty kewl. To help you better understand how vital water is within me, here are a few key functions:

*water transports Nutrients (good stuff) INTO my cells
* water transports Oxygen INTO my cells
* water transports Toxins (the yuk stuff) OUT of my cells
* water moisturizes the air in my lungs (I love this)
* water helps me protect our vital organs (yeah baby)
* with water our organs can then absorb nutrients better
* I am able to metabolize fat better with water
* our joints are protected and moisturized with water
* water regulates my body temperature so you are happy!!

Can you see why I am letting you know that every cell in our body needs water from head to toe? My basic (minimal) needs are 64 ounces of water a day. I metabolize fat better with double that amount. After 64 ounces of pure water, I can make herbal tea work. A yummy ‘fat flush‘ drink as well.

One day I heard another body say “I’m not thirsty so I don’t drink water”. I gotta tell ya, ‘thirst’ is the last indicator that I NEED WATER!

TRUST ME on this. When I feel fatigued, I need water. In fact water, my elixir, is a source of energy. When you give me my elixir I will give you a boost of energy. When I have a headache, I need water. When I am cranky, I need water. Here are a few more clues I can give you as to when I am in NEED of WATER!!!!

* when my Urine is DARK and/or SMELLY I do not have enough water to process the toxins within me. I need your help.
* When my skin is DRY I am trying to tell you I am parched. By the way, did I tell you that our Skin is considered our third Kidney? It is also our largest organ and needs my elixir.
* I leave white spots on our skin (say after pressing our thumb on our arm) or rings on our ankles or waist to let you know I am lacking hydration.
* I use ‘thirst’ as a last sign to let your attention. If we have hair growing on our tongue or BAD BREATH, please, give me some water!!!
* sometimes I will even attack our muscles and make them cramp up or jump all over the place to let you know we are dehydrated.
* I also let you know we are dehydrated by pulling out all the water from our colon. You consider it constipation, I consider it an act to help me find my elixir.

As you can see, you could greatly help us both out by flooding me with my Power Reserve…. WATER. I’ve done my best to show how EVERY cell within us needs our elixir. So GO FOR IT, fuel us up baby. Power UP with WATER!

With love, praise and adoration

Heart Attack & Water:

Something I didn't know either! I asked my Doctor why do I and other people urinate (pee) so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor = Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright. When you lie down and the lower body (legs and other things) seeks level with the kidneys it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!

I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.

Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

Please pass this to the people you care about......

I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. (which I am told is nth american slang for severe leg cramps)
