The benefits of drinking water are so amazing that it's been called the forgotten secret of health.
Most people live in a state of chronic dehydration and may not even realize it.
75% of your body is water and 90% of your brain. I'm sure you've heard that before, but doesn't that tell you something? Keep a glass of water handy, there's nothing that can replace it.
The benefits are yours only if you drink water, coffee, tea and coke are not the same thing. So what do you reach for? Train yourself to reach for water; here's to your health.
This one point cannot be emphasized enough - if you wait until you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated and this is affecting your cells.
It's been said that your sense of thirst decreases as you get older: it's probably true but not just because you're older.
This only happens if you tend to ignore your body. Your need for water certainly does not decrease.
If anything, you need more for detoxing.
If you follow what we're teaching on this site: colon cleansing, eating raw foods and drinking plenty of water - this is the only natural cancer cure that I know really works.
Thousands of people have healed themselves, experienced their own natural cancer cure over the 50 years the (Hippocrates Institute) has been around.
As simple as it seems, the benefits of drinking water are powerful.
Water is the one key ingredient to health. You must take it the right way for full health and vitality. Your body's processes depend on water. It helps you recover and heal from hurts and illnesses, cleans out the system, and even improves digestion and sexual performance.
So what are the essentials to enjoy the benefits of drinking water?
- The first key is the amount of water you need. 10 glasses a day is a start. More exacting is to drink half your body weight in fluid ounces. But of course this depends on your level of activity and the temperature.
- The second thing is the frequency. Ideally, you want to be adding water to match your body's use throughout the day. Have a glass handy so you can pace yourself and drink before and during when you're especially active.
- To complete the picture, you have to consider the quality of water. All water is not the same. Tap water has so many toxins these days, prescription medications and chlorine. The chlorine alone increases your chances of getting cancer by 93% over your lifetime, according to the EPA.
