Do You Drink Enough Water – HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU DRINK?

1. Massive Energy

 

When you are dehydrated by as little as 5% then you’re going to experience a loss of approx 25% energy! It’s estimated that over 80% of the worlds population is more then 5% dehydrated! Do you remember  the last time you drank enough water in the day? And do you know how much water is enough?

When you drink lot’s of good quality water you feel great, full of energy and vitality. For several years now people have said that 2 litres of water per day is enough to keep you hydrated, I disagree with that. Drinking 2 litres per day will still leave you dehydrated so you actually need 3-4 litres of good quality filtered water per day!

When you are dehydrated you often get headaches, foggy thinking, fatigue in your mind and body, mood swings, we overeat and your metabolism slows down dramatically – hello weight gain! 80% of your body should be water and the rest is just cells and tissues i.e. bone cells, muscles, connective tissues, blood vessels, skin etc… Your body needs water for almost every bodily function so when you’re dehydrated you will suffer physically and mentally.

 

2. Weight Loss

 

An interesting point to note is that your brain doesn’t distinguish the difference between being hungry and being thirsty! So when you’re thirsty, you can mistake that for hunger and eat when you should be drinking which will further dehydrate you! If you stay properly hydrated then your body is much less likely to get these signals wrong and therefore you will naturally want to eat less and as a result lose weight and / or maintain your ideal weight! This bit of information alone can be an absolute game changer for so many people don’t you think?

 

3. Great Soft Clear Skin

 

Staying hydrated and consuming 3-4 litres of water per day you will also begin to notice some dramatic changes to your skin. Problems such as acne, dryness, eczema, psoriasis and more will start to heal and then disappear. Why? When dehydrated, the body preserves the water supply to critical organs, such as the brain and the heart, but “cuts off water” to peripheral
organs such as skin resulting in skin complaints like eczema etc…

 

4. Body Chemistry Balance

 

When you drink clean, filtered water with a pH of 8.5+  you will notice that you begin to feel
much more healthyand full of energy and vitality. Our body is designed to be alkaline,
maintaining a pH level of approximately 7.365 in our cells, particularly the blood.

When we eat and drink too many acid-forming foods and drinks such as coca-cola,
sugars, breads, sweets, pizza, alcohol, white rice & pasta, trans-fats, fast
food, refined food, sauces & condiments, dairy, meats and more we put our body
under an incredible strain to maintain this pH balance at 7.365. By hydrating our body with high pH water we help maintain this alkalinity, flush toxins & acids from the body.

Being over-weight is also an acidity problem, so when you start to hydrate & alkalize you will also start to lose weight, usually quickly aswell. Just by drinking 4 litres of alkaline water per day you will begin to see huge improvements with your weight.

 

5. You Will Stay Young!

 

An over acidic environment in your body is one of the causes of premature aging. Your diet coupled with dehydration will compound this problem speeding up the aging process. If you are properly hydrated then water will help to flush toxins out of your system, however if you are dehydrated then the toxins accumulate in your tissues and this is the aging process or the degenerative process.

When your body is able to dispose of the wastes and toxins it generates then this can in itself be anti-aging and drinking plenty of water helps massively. When we are hydrated, our cells function optimally, our digestive system works very well and we can remove these aging toxins easily!

So there you have it drinking 3-4 litres of water per day can and will change your life!

FINALLY….. Remember……the purpose of chiropractic is to locate and correct areas of the spine that interfere with the normal nervous system control of your body. Because the intervertebral discs are so close to the spinal cord and nerve roots, disc involvement is common in chiropractic cases. Spinal adjustments help to restore correct motion and position of the misaligned spinal bones and if caught before permanent damage occurs, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape.

Chiropractic first. Risky drugs second. Surgery last.
