Medicinal Implications of Water

By Sam Richard Subscribe to RSS | July 14th 2012 | Views:

Everyone knows that water constitutes of 75% of our body weight. Additionally, it plays an integral role in a number of processes that go in within our bodies, right from the most basic cellular growth. Ask any medical professional who follows any conventional or alternative technique of treatment, and they will tell you what the real benefits of water are. Water is considered to be the most effective medicine for maintenance of health and reversal and prevention of illnesses, especially among Naturopath experts. It is also the world’s best pain reliever and lack of water intake can result in a number of unwanted diseases.

Water for Survival

Since it is a major component of one’s tissues and cells, it is more possible for an individual to survive without food, but impossible for a human being to survive without water. Deficiency of water results in some very profound effects that are quintessentially not noticed due to deficiency of other nutrients.

Water for Bodily Functions

Science tells us that the body recycles approximately 40,000 glasses of water every 24 hours for the purpose of regular physiological functions of all our systems. It is during this process that the body tends to become short of 6 – 10 glasses of water depending on the environment one lives in and the lifestyle one leads. Drinking regular water is necessary to replace this deficit and avoid dehydration.

Symptoms of Dehydration

If you feel an increase in the level of thirst, your mouth feels dry, saliva becomes sticky and there is a reduced volume in the output f urine with some yellow discoloration, you need to increase your water intake in general. If dehydration persists you are also bound to feel more irritable, restless, weak, and experience increase in heart and pulse rates. You may also experience cold extremities, muscle cramps, breathing problems and eventually one may even lose consciousness.

Most people fail to indentify the early symptoms of dehydration. It is a common myth that one’s body isn’t in need of water if one is not feeling thirsty. This is common among individuals who are used to suppression of thirst since childhood, which results in individuals not being able to recognize the needs of their body.

Other Causes of Dehydration

Dehydration also occurs to individuals who undergo intense physical exercise regimens, are frequently exposed to extensive sunlight, and in cases of high fever, vomiting and diarrhoea where there is tremendous loss of fluid.

Lack of essential fatty acids (EFA) which help in keeping your cells tightly knit together also result in dehydration. The deficiency of EFA results in the loss of water and other fluids which cannot be increased even with increasing quantities of water intake.

To ensure life-long health and to avoid dehydration, it is important that you follow healthy habits in water consumption. One of the first things to be done in the morning when you wake up is drink a few glasses of fresh water to rectify the dehydration that is caused during sleep. 2 -3 glasses of water in the morning also act as an excellent laxative.

In addition to this, drinking of water has a number of benefits for your digestive system, neurological system as well as for oxygenating process that is important for your bodily functions.
