WATER – Not just a Simple Thirst Quencher
We all know that weary, fatigued feeling which just doesn’t make sense. You don’t know where it’s coming from and can’t really explain it. So is the case with being untimely peckish. How about a fuzzy head or that nagging headache? Have you ever thought that it all can be “cured” quickly and easily with a nice long cool glass of water? There are so much more to water than the mere obvious!
Every living being on planet earth has an extreme strong survival instinct and we humans are at the very top of that list. That is what we are all programmed for. Now let’s see; what is it you need to survive and what is most crucial for you? Is it food, water, oxygen, that precious early morning coffee or maybe even your smart phone?
Be watchful of dehydration!
By the time you start feeling thirsty, you are already dehydrated to some extent. The frail elderly as well as babies are more prone to dehydrate easily when sick or plagued by a tummy virus. Most of us don’t like drinking water in wintertime, especially the sensitive ones amongst us. Even then we can still dehydrate in a too warm enclosed area and more so when we’re ill or exercise.
Let’s look at a few very interesting statistics:
- 60% of an adult male’s total body weight consists of water. The brain is 70% water, which explains poor concentration and headaches when dehydrated.
- Due to a woman’s extra fat percentage, 55% of her bodyweight is water.
- A new born baby’s water percentage is 79, thus can dehydration be fatal!
Importance of water for our survival
Every single system in our bodies needs water to function properly:
- It helps with digestion.
- An aid against obesity.
- Helps the liver and kidneys to get rid of toxins.
- Regulates body temperature.
- Protects tissues and organs.
We know we have to listen to our bodies, it will tell us what it needs. But who would think it actually listens to us and that it would react to our thoughts, words and emotions. In the curios documentary film What the Bleep do we Know!, we see how dr. Masaru Emoto from Japan proved just that. He wrote the words “I hate you, you make me sick” and stuck it on a glass jar with water. On another, he put the words “Love and Gratitude”. He then froze the water and took photographs of the ice crystals with a special lens. The result was astonishing in how completely different the patterns of the crystals looked. As someone said in the film: “Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? If thoughts can do that to water, imagine what our thoughts can do to us”.
