Water For Your Health
Water For Your Health
Water….pure & simple. It is a part of who we are and yet many people don't get enough of it. Water helps our bodies work properly and we can't survive without it for more than a few days. When your body is deprived of water, you can become dehydrated. Water helps your blood carry oxygens to your cells. Water helps your lymph system, your digestion system, and helps you get rid of waste.
What you may not realize, is that even if you drink water for your health, you may not drink enough. Many things that may be going wrong with your body could be due to lack of water. You can have arthritic pains, migraines, back pains, and a host of other problems, and you may never contribute to a lack of water.
Dr. Batmanghelidj has done extensive studies on the benefits of water and he goes to great lengths to explain the benefits of water in a book called "Water For Heatlh, For Healing, & For Life."
Here are some of the benefits he says water can give you for preventive measures:
Water prevents and helps to cure heartburn
Heartburn is a signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage.
Not recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.
Water prevents and helps to cure arthritis.
Rheumatoid joint pain – arthritis – is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of pain-killers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.
Water prevents and helps to cure back pain.
Low back pain and ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs – the water cushions that support the weight of the body. These conditions should be treated with increased water intake – not a commercial treatment, but a very effective one.
Not recognizing arthritis and low back pain as signs of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died. It will produce deformity of the spine. It will produce crippling deformities of the limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening complications.
Water prevents and helps to cure angina.
Heart pain – angina – is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is angina's cure.
Water prevents and helps to cure migraines.
Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eye sight.
The next time you may ache in your back, have a migraine, or just need to quinch your thirst, grab a glass of clear & refrehing water for your health!
