The mechanism of thirst is so weak that often 37% of people confuse it with hunger.
A glass of water will calm the hunger at midnight in almost 100% of cases under a reducing diet, according to a study conducted at the University of Washington.
Did you know that …?
A delimitation of 2% of the water in the body to cause a momentary death of memory, difficulties with mathematics from the base and the problems to the light of life in a camp of attention or in a printed page?
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day reduces the risk of colon cancer by 45%, in addition to reducing the risk of breast cancer by 79% and halving the risk of developing bladder cancer.
According to experts, this is not optional, it is mandatory we want our brain to work optimally. And if we are stressed, we should increase to 16 glasses of water a day.
90% of the volume of our brain is composed of water and is the main vehicle of electrochemical transmissions
You can not imagine what 8-10 glasses of water a day can do to eliminate many discomforts. People do not usually drink as much to avoid the hassle of having to urinate often; A minor inconvenience in exchange for an improvement in your health.
If the color of your urine is not very pale yellow or better yet, no color, do not get enough water (this is not worth if you are taking vitamin B, which produces a natural yellow color).
The term drinking water does not mean coffee, tea or soft drinks. Bottled water and / or springs are the best. Drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day could highlight a lot of discomfort for 80% of people.
Heal antacids and treat heartburn.
Heartburn may be a sign of lack of water in the upper gastrointestinal tract. It is a sign of significant thirst emitted by the human body. Ingesting antacids or tablets into heartburn tablets does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer from not having enough water.
Tragedy: Not recognizing heartburn is a sign of dehydration and treated with antacids, occurs on the stomach inflammation of time, in the duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulcers and possibly lung cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, including pancreas and liver.
Water can prevent and cure arthritis.
Rheumatic Joint Pain – Arthritis can be a sign of lack of water in the joints. This can affect both young people and adults. The use of analgesics for pain does not solve the problem and advances the disease. Drinking water will alleviate this problem.
Pain in the lower back and ankylosing spinal arthritis may be a sign of lack of water in the spinal discs – cushions that support the weight of the body. These discomforts should be treated by increasing the amount of water to drink.
Tragedy: Do not recognize that back pain is a symptom of dehydration in the joints and treat it with pain killers, massages, acupuncture, and possibly surgery, over time this will cause osteoporosis when the cells Cartilage in the joints will eventually die and cause deformity in the spine, which in turn lead to physical disability of the lower limbs.
Angina of the chest
Chest pain – Angina of the chest – may be a sign of lack of water in the body between the ax of the heart and the lungs.
This symptom should be treated by drinking more water until the patient has no pain and no medication. I have cautioned to have medical supervision, however, in addition to the amount of water to drink can cure angina pectoris.
The migraine can be a part of the mania of fresh water in the beers and the years. Migraine can be prevented by preventing dehydration of the body, this particular type of dehydration possibly causes inflammation in the back of the eye and possibly to de-minution or loss of vision.
Colitis is a sign of lack of water in the large intestine. The disease is related to constipation due to the constriction of the excess of water exerted on the feces and which in turn per lubrication brought by the water.
Tragedy: Not recognizing the pain of colitis as a sign of lack of water, will cause a condition of persistent constipation that will result in a compaction in the stool that in turn can cause vertigo, polyps and hemorrhoids, and increase the possibility of get colon and rectal cancer.
Asthma that affects about 12,000,000 children and kills several thousand of them each year is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by a failure in the body’s hydration administration program. The free passage of air is obstructed and prevents the elimination of water in the form of vapor from the body – the mist. The increase in water consumption prevents asthma attacks.
Tragedy: Not recognizing asthma as an indicator of lack of water in the stage of development of children, not only sentenced to death several thousand of them each year, but will cause asthmatic children to survive, an irreversible genetic damage .
High blood pressure.
Hypertension is a state of adaptation of the body to a general dehydration when the cells of the blood vessels do not get enough water. As part of the reverse osmosis mechanism, when the serum water is filtered and injected to the important cells through minute pores in their membranes, extra pressure is required for the “injection process”, as it happens when injects the “serum” in hospitals to pre-hydrate the millions of cells. Drinking water will compensate the pressure to normal.
Tragedy: By not recognizing that high blood pressure is one of the indicators of body dehydration and treating them by means of diuretics that in turn dehydrate them further, they will subsequently result in a blockage of the arteries of the heart and arteries that go to the brain by the action of cholesterol. This condition will cause heart attacks, small or massive cerebral infarcts that can paralyze any part of the body. They can also cause kidney failure and neurological damage such as
Type II or adult diabetes.
Adult Diabetes is another probable cause due to the dehydration of the body. Maintaining an adequate amount of water in the circulation and for the priority needs of the brain the secretion of insulin is inhibited to prevent the entry of water into the cells of the body. In diabetics only some cells get enough water to survive. Drinking water reverses adult diabetes in the early stages.
Tragedy: Failing to recognize that in adult diabetes is a complication by dehydration, over time, can cause massive damage to blood cells throughout the body. This can later cause the loss from the toes to even the legs by gangrene and blindness.
Cholesterol in the blood
High cholesterol levels are indicators of early body dehydration. Cholesterol is a clay material that adheres between the spaces of some cell membranes to prevent them from losing their vital moisture by the stronger osmotic pressure of the blood circulating in the vicinity.
Cholesterol, apart from being used in the manufacture of the membranes of nerve cells and hormones, also acts as a “shield” against the water demand of other vital cells that normally exchange water through their cell membranes.
Depression, loss of libido, the symptom of chronic fatigue, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy. All these conditions can be the cause of prolonged dehydration. If this is the probable cause, it will be relieved once the body has been hydrated regularly. Under these conditions muscle exercise should be part of the treatment program.
Now the question is: Are you taking the right amount of water daily?
