The Importance of Water



The Importance of Water

Water is the driving power behind all forms of life. Our bodies are over 70% water and all of our body fluids contain it. Even the food we eat is predominantly made of water. Water adjusts the body’s temperature and through perspiration rids the body of toxins. Health authorities recommend that we drink at least 64 ounces of water per day to attain proper hydration. Most of us are dehydrated and dehydration can lead to great physical impairment and, in sever cases, death. Dehydration is especially prevalent among men and women over forty years of age. For the body to function properly, it is imperative that it be properly hydrated.

Why we Get Sick

Cells produce acidic wastes as they metabolize energy. A byproduct of this process is a free radical which is an ordinary oxygen molecule that is an electron short. This free radical attacks healthy cells in an attempt to correct this electrical imbalance. A lifetime of damage can lead to chronic illness as well as pathological aging. This is referred to as the “cellular-damage model of aging”. As Sang Whang states in his popular book, Reverse Aging, “We age because we accumulate acidic wastes.” Anti-oxidants block this process by contributing electrons to active oxygen molecules thus neutralizing their effect on healthy cells.

Simple Ways to Avoid Toxicity

Here are some simple ways to avoid toxicity. Do what you ca to purify your home and work. Remove any known sources of toxic materials such as, acids, glues, solvents, paints, dyes, stored or leaking chemicals, insecticides and cleaning agents. If these materials cannot be removed, you may need an effective air purification system. Protective clothing and/or breathing apparatus should be worn when using any toxic materials. Regular replacement of furnace and air conditioning filters may also be helpful.

It is also very important to eat a diet with fresh and wholesome foods. Avoid eating excess fat, refined sugar, and foods high in additives and preservatives. Eat moderate levels of protein and fat, while increasing levels of complex carbohydrates. Substitute organically raised animals and organically grown fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Drink plenty of purified water (64 oz per day). A home water purification system is highly recommended to provide pure water for drinking and cooking.
