“I can’t drink water, it goes straight through me.”
Where this happens it can be a sign of severe dehydration. Imagine a dried out plant pot where it is so dry the soil has come away from the sides of the pot. This is severe dehydration. If you pour on water it will just pass straight through and do nothing for the soil or the plant. If you keep watering it gradually the soil and the plant will respond and the water will be retained by the soil and used by the plant. Our bodies can be much the same.
Read on for more information about how our bodies use and need water.
“I drink water but I am still thirsty.”
The reason for this can be for example, that you are not drinking enough or that the water you are drinking is not helpful to your body (tap water tends to contain chlorine among other things) or that your body needs another nutrient such as Omega 3 essential fatty acids.
Water, need it, want it, drink it! If you are not drinking around two litres per day then you may be dehydrated. Sadly tea and coffee do not count as they can cause dehydration. Here are some of the reasons why we need to drink lots of clean, chemical-free (as free as possible) water:
- Composes 75% of the brain
- Helps to regulates body temperature
- Makes up over 80% of our blood
- Removes waste from the body
- Cushions the joints
- Helps to carry nutrients and oxygen to the cells
- Moistens and oxygenates the lungs for breathing
- Helps to convert food to energy
- Protects and cushions the vital organs
- Helps the body to absorb nutrients
- Makes up 75% of the muscles
A client explained “when I drink the water at work, I feel unwell.” She was referring to the tap water and from the water filter machine. So I suggested that she bring two small bottles with some water to her treatment session. On testing her body response her muscles changed to a weak response, which was indicating she should avoid it. I found what type of water strengthened her and she is now avoiding the water at work.
Sadly this comes as no surprise; who likes their water to smell like it’s come out of a swimming pool? Does your tap smell like that? Do you drink it? If you want to know more about tap water, you may like to search the Internet on ‘chemicals in tap water’ and decide for yourself.
Let’s turn our attention to the solution. The solution to pollution (in the body) is dilution. But we can not dilute pollution with polluted water – that will just give the body’s detoxing systems more work. During your treatment we can test to see if you are dehydrated. It may be that you are drinking plenty but that for some reason your body is not using it effectively. If this is the case, we can correct the imbalance. There are options available and I will test my clients to see what works best for them. See the Self Help page for information about AquaDOTS which are one of the solutions I have found.
Water is a fantastic substance!
We tend to underestimate, ignore or just be unaware of the wonder of water. If you are interested to know more about it, I can recommend this book – The Hidden Messages in Water by Masaru Emoto, it certainly changed my understanding and escalated it in my rating of what is important for helping us to be well. I discovered it in 2012 and found that the messages in water and in the book have the power to change our thinking – in more ways than one.
