Water For Wellness – Will Water Cure Disease?
Most of us are aware that we need to drink more water, some of us do not see that it is necessary and drink very little, others realize that we are not drinking enough and “will try to drink more”. I for one keep telling myself that I should drink more water… but I never thought of it before as a possible cure for many of the health issues that people suffer from today .
Water is, after all, the basis of all life and is vital to our very existence. The muscles that move our body are made up of 75% water; blood that carries nutrients is 82%; the lungs that provide our oxygen are 90% water; the brain, the control center of the body is 76% and even our bones are 25% water.
When you think about it, nothing on this earth will survive without water and our health really depends on the quality and quantity of water we drink.
Salt is another essential nutrient for life and many problems are caused by a deficiency of these two essential nutrients, water and salt.
Arthritis, asthma, autism and other birth defects caused by maternal dehydration, most back problems (without enough water and salt, the body cannot produce enough cartilage to prevent joint degeneration), cancer, high cholesterol which only appears when the body needs it to prevent the loss of water in the cells, circulation problems, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, headaches, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, obesity, osteoporosis, scleroderma and most skin and thyroid problems.
It would seem far too simple to imagine that we could actually cure any of these problems simply by adding water and salt to our diet. Yet, according to Dr Batmanghelidj, author of “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water”, that is exactly what we can do. Think about it…what is the most common treatment used in hospitals to stabilize the patient? – a drip of saline solution IV.
Dr. Batmanghelidj’s pioneering work shows that chronic unintentional dehydration (UCD) can be the cause of pain and the presence of many degenerative diseases. Increasing water intake and regularly adding sea salt to the diet can prevent and treat many of these degenerative diseases.
Everyone agrees that water is good for the body but what they don’t know is what happens to the body if it doesn’t get its daily needs.
Thirst signals often manifest as pain and are treated with medication. These drugs do not “cure” the problem, but simply mask the problem. It’s like turning off the dashboard light that tells us that our car is about to overheat.
If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, make drinking enough natural water a habit in your life. It won’t take you long to feel the benefits.
