NHS07: Help for Chronic Dehydration... Energized Water26.02.2013
by Life Enthusiast Staff
Water is essential to human survival. Most people think they drink enough water. To them, dehydration happens only after a night out drinking, or to travelers in the desert.
But sneaking up on so many of us may be this disaster called Chronic Dehydration.
Do you have any idea how much water you need daily - just to sustain your health (let alone how to rid yourself of excess toxins)?
Your daily water requirement is probably somewhere between 2 to 3 quarts or liters EVERYDAY! (quarts and liters are similar)
If you're a regular coffee or tea drinker, if you eat very few fresh fruits and veggies, then you'll need even more water than that! Especially if you exercise too.
Your body is made of more than 70% water and can survive 3 to 5 days without consuming any water.
As the most ingested substance worldwide, water is also a common source of both acute and chronic illness. Long-term exposure to chemical contaminants can have serious and deadly effects.
According to the Water Quality and Health Council, "drinking water systems continue to face challenges in assuring that customers receive microbiologically safe water".
Most Americans depend on their local water utility to provide a safe water supply. Testing and monitoring is not as routine as most people think.
Thirteen Symptoms of Chronic Dehydration
Adapted from "The Water Prescription", by Christopher Vasey, N.D.
This list of 13 symptoms will inspire you to go get a glass of water, and then another, and another...
1. Fatigue, Energy Loss
Dehydration of the tissues causes enzymatic activity to slow down.
When chewed food enters the colon, it contains too much liquid to allow stools to form properly, and the wall of the colon reduces it. In chronic dehydration, the colon takes too much water to give to other parts of the body.
3. Digestive Disorders
In chronic dehydration, the secretion of digestive juices are less.
4. High and Low Blood Pressure
The body’s blood volume is not enough to completely fill the entire set of arteries, veins, and capillaries.
5. Gastritis, Stomach Ulcers
To protect its mucous membranes from being destroyed by the acidic digestive fluid it produces, the stomach secretes a layer of mucus.
6. Respiratory Troubles
The mucous membranes of the respiratory region are slightly moist to protect the respiratory tract from substances that might be present in inhaled air.
7. Acid-Alkaline Imbalance
Dehydration activates an enzymatic slowdown producing acidification.
8. Excess Weight and Obesity
We may overeat because we crave foods rich in water. Thirst is often confused with hunger.
Your body needs enough moisture to sweat 20 to 24 ounces of water, the amount necessary to dilute toxins so they do not irritate the skin.
When dehydration causes too much liquid to be removed from inside the cells, the body tries to stop this loss by producing more cholesterol.
11. Cystitis, Urinary Infections
If toxins contained in urine are insufficiently diluted, they attack the urinary mucous membranes.
Dehydration abnormally increases the concentration of toxins in the blood and cellular fluids, and the pains increase in proportion to the concentration of the toxins.
13. Premature Aging
The body of a newborn child is composed of 80 percent liquid, but this percentage declines to no more than 70 percent in an adult and continues to decline with age.
Water molecules form dynamic liquid crystals that reflect the experience the water has had. Pure (super-moisturizing) water molecules appear crystalline, like a snowflake. Polluted (even tap water) water molecules appears distorted, glob-like.

Homeopathy is based on water's ability to hold vibration.
Our bodies store emotions (positive and negative) in the soft tissue. When energy flow is blocked, it becomes stagnant, and health problems develop.
Is bottled Water the answer? We think not.
"Roughly 40 percent of bottled water begins as tap water."
~Earth Policy Institute
According to the Container Recycling Institute, 86 percent of plastic water bottles used in the United States become garbage or litter. (It takes up to 1000 years for a plastic water bottle to biodegrade.)
"Making bottles to meet the U.S. demand for bottled water requires more than 1.5 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel some 100,000 U.S. cars for a year."
