Water is one of the most important physical need for survival. We take water for granted and put little thought into drinking water on a regular basis. Plants die if they do not have any water; our bodies react the same way. Therefore let the water flow through your body.
Have you heard that water is a conductor of electrical current and has an affinity with air? Thereby electrifying one another and so important for our electrical bodies.
Our bodies consist of approximately 70% water and our brain consists of approximately 93% water. Our bodies need to re-hydrate and refresh every 24 hours. Our blood is made up of approximately 83% water and muscles are made up of approximately 75% water. Therefore water is the building blocks that makes up our body and requires replacing often within a 24 hour period.
What actions could you take?
Drink a glass of water when you wake up
A general rule is, drink 1 litre of water for every 22 kilograms of body weight
Best indicator of our water needs comes from the colour and odour of our urine. Drink 1 glass of water on the hour every hour during the day until your urine becomes clear
When you get signs of hunger, your body is telling you it requires water to hydrate
Add a ¼ teaspoon of Celtic or Himalayan salt and ¼ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda in your water. The salt helps to retain the water in the process of re-hydration. The bicarbonate soda can neutralise most acid solutions and helps your PH balance in your body
Increase sea salt consumption and fresh fruits and juices to avoid muscle cramps
Drink clean fresh water, like spring, filtered or distilled water. I bought myself a water distiller and it really works very well
Go on a water fast to reset your body clock or intermittent fasting to help your body process and digest the food.
I have just finished my water fasting for 10 days. This is my 2nd water fasting, my previous water fasting, happened two years ago. I appreciate food more, my head is clearer and I feel more alive. After the 10 days of water fasting, I broke my water fast with juice fast, drank juice and water for the next 11 days. Drinking juice at noon and around 5:30 pm and the rest of the time drinking distilled water. I broke my juice fast with eating 80% raw, on fruits and vegetables (whole foods) and intermittent fasting in the morning. I can say from my experience, I feel alive, healthy and grateful for this experience. We have so unique bodies, that each person’s experience is so different.
Dr Mike Mosley has written a book about the benefits of intermittent fasting.
Tyler Tolman has a program Heal Thyself Fasting and great videos explaining the benefits of fasting. Do your own research and see if this could be a way to get back on track to a healthy body, reset your body and start healing yourself.
