How Hydration Can Totally Change Your Life
a 5% drop in body fluids will cause a 25-30% loss of energy in most people
In fact, even mild dehydration can slow our metabolism down by 3% – when you consider this, you can see why rehydration can support weight loss!
Proper hydration is so important to every function of the human body (if fluids drop by just 15% we die) and dehydration is at the root cause of such a ridiculous number of symptoms. From thirst to depression to cancer to obesity to fatigue to bulimia to digestive problems to skin problems and so on. This is not to say that dehydration is the only cause, but the above is just a small selection of the symptoms of repeated, daily dehydration.
But on the more positive side:
Being hydrated can change everything. Just the simple act of drinking enough water, on a daily basis, can have a profound effect on your life.
It certainly will help you to lose weight, as the water clears acid toxins from your system and boosts your metabolism. Our body’s cry for thirst is also often mistaken for hunger, leading to overeating.
Here are some more facts to show you how important hydration is:
A six-year study published in the May 1, 2002 American Journal of Epid emiology found that those who drink more than 5 glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from a heart attack during the study period than those who drank less than two glasses.
Drinking the equivalent of 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%.
Drinking the 2 litres of water a day decreases the risk of breast cancer by 79%
In fact, one of the biggest impacts that our alkaline diet course is having on people is that it is making them properly hydrate themselves.
It is so simple, but the reason why I think we often don’t give enough importance to hydration is that it is so simple. It is hard for our brain to connect such a profound effect with something as simple as drinking a proper amount of water each day.
So I am not going to argue the point too much – I think 99% of you will agree that drinking enough water on a daily basis is absolutely a good thing. So let’s get into the three most important questions:
1. How Much?
2. What is Good Water
3. How Can I Make it a Habit?!
Lets keep it simple. If you are not drinking 10 to 12 10oz glasses of water per day, you are not drinking enough water. Or, let’s try this, ½ oz of water per pound of body weight min.
The best time to drink water is when you first wake up; you need to start the day by hydrating your organs first thing, Have a 10 to 12 oz glass of Kangen water wait 5 min have another 10-12 oz glass of water along with ¼ tsp of real sea salt that has trace minerals in it, this helps to add minerals you need for the day. At 3:00 pm in the afternoon when you start to feel a little tired have a big glass of Kangen water along with another ¼ tsp of real sea salt, you will feel your energy come back.
What Should I Drink?
This question is easy to answer, lets get back to natures water, Kangen water, it is structured just like the water that comes naturally out of the ground, not in a plastic bottle.
