We are made up of 80% water. Research has established that water is an essential nutrient that nourishes our body like a river.Â Â A river remains clean and pure when it is flowing.Â When water becomes stagnant it putrefies. Â Water needs to be constantly in motion like the circulation of blood. When blood becomes thick and stagnant, our body begins to build toxins and our brain function is compromised.
Two facts to keep in our awareness, especially in the Summer time are: water is an essential nutrient and caffeine is a diuretic. Â We can lose up to three cups of water after drinking only one cup of any caffeinated beverage. The increase of hot temperatures speeds up our mineral loss along with our chances of dehydration.
Dehydration depletes the body of water needed for perspiring and thickens the blood, requiring more pressure to pump it through the body, thus straining the heart and blood vessels. As blood goes to the external surface of the body, less goes to the muscles, the brain, and other organs. With less blood flow we have muscle cramps, hazy concentration and irritability.
We tend to overlook the signs of dehydration. Our brain doesn’t signal us immediately that we are dehydrated. By the time we feel thirst it is often too late. We are already experiencing the subtle mood changes/ being cranky, lack of concentration and fatigue. Being dehydrated leads to headaches, constipation and acid reflux. Most imbalances may be cured with a few more glasses of water. Just for todayÂ…try for to be mindful of your water intake.
There is more to water than just sipping another eight ounces. On a molecular level there is evidence that demonstrates the power or word or thought on water. An example can be as simple as placing the word “gratitude” on your water bottle. “The Hidden Messages of Water” by Masaru Emoto, delivers a magnificent message of how water holds messages from our word, to our environment and, on a deeper level the life that has traveled through water such as our magnificent oceans. Dr. Emoto used high speed photography to capture crystals formed in frozen water revealing the specific changes that occur when concentrated thoughts or words are placed on water and are directed toward the water. He found that water from clear springs exposed to loving words show brilliant complex and colorful snowflake patters. In contrast to polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, formed incomplete asymmetrical patterns. Stop for a moment and take into our consciousness that the power of word has an impact on water, the implications of his research gives us insight on how we may positively influence our own personal health.
Water is the essential key to uncovering the mysteries of the universe.
