Healing Water

By admin On June 29, 2010 Under Therapies

“When Dr. Batmanghelidj thinks of a glass of water, he doesn’t think of it as half full or half empty. He thinks of it as brimming over with the essential fluid of life. He thinks of it as the solvent of our ills and deliverer of ripe old age. He thinks of it as the wave of the future.” -The Washington Times

Dependent On Water

Pure water is one of the greatest blessings on planet earth.  It is important both internally and externally.  Our bodies are 75 percent water and it circulates through out bodies like it does through the world around us.  If we don’t get enough our cells cannot function, our organs shrink, and disease overcomes us.  Water is also important for cleansing and healing our external bodies.

If You Are Thirsty – It’s Already Too Late

A lack of water in the body causes more than just a dry mouth.  A dry mouth is actually one of the last signs of dehydration.  By that time the body is already shutting down functions.  Water carries vital elements to all parts of the body.  Without enough water, remote parts of the body don’t receive these supplies.

Dehydration Causes Disease

Dr. Batmanghelidj writes about these things and more in his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water.  He says that dehydration is actually a cause of pain, disease symptoms, disease, and premature death.  We often treat disease with drugs when all we need is consistent water.  Indeed, chronic dehydration develops into a disease condition.  This is a big part of the aging process because it causes a chronic loss of enzyme function.

Prevent or Cure With Water

According to Dr. Batmanghelidj’s research, water can prevent or help to cure heartburn, arthritis, back pain, angina, migraines, colitis, asthma, high blood pressure, early adult-onset diabetes, cholesterol, and many more diseases.  Many degenerative diseases are at least the partial result of chronic dehydration.

Are you dehydrated?

  • You are already dehydrated if you are thirsty.
  • The color of the urine will tell if the body is properly hydrated.  If it is clear and odorless, it is hydrated.  The darker yellow to orange and the more odor, the more dehydrated it is.
  • Even mild dehydration will cause less coordination, exhaustion, less skin and mucous membrane moisture, headaches, blurred thinking, and stress in general.

How much and when?

  • You need to drink a bit more than half of your body weight in ounces each day.  Drink more than that if you are physically active or live in hot country.  Your water intake should be spread throughout the day and not a half gallon in the morning and another at night.

What can you do to help your water intake?

  • Drink a large glass or two in the morning before you put anything else in.  This is important because you are most dehydrated and toxin after hours of sleep and repair.  This is huge for health and function.
  • Drink a glass of water when you go to bed.  This will give you body fluid for processing while you are asleep.
  • Stop to drink regularly throughout the day.  Keep a bottle of water by you at all times.  Don’t wait to drink until you are thirsty.
  • Don’t drink sodas, caffeinated beverages, or juice in place of water.  These are not a substitute for water.  They actually cause dehydration in the body by causing the body to jettison more liquid than is drunk.
  • Drink a glass of water half an hour before you eat and half an hour after the meal. Your body’s organs need water to support the digestive process—just not too much.  Drinking too much with your meals can dilute digestion, but some is ok.  However, it is better to drink half an hour on either side.
  • When you exercise, drink before, during, and after.  Drink a quart of water for every hour of exercise and more if it is a hot day.
  • Get plenty of salt with your increased water intake.  Most people don’t get enough.  Water intake needs to be balanced with salt intake, about ¼ teaspoon per quart (4-5 glasses).  Use the best naturally processed salt you can get such as Redmond RealSalt.

Water and Fatigue

The effects of dehydration on fatigue were tested by a group of researchers in the 1940s.  Athletes walked on a treadmill at a steady rate in a hot setting.  One group used no water, the next used water on demand, and the last took enough water to replace their water loss.

The athletes with no water reached body temperatures of 102 degrees in 3.5 hours and were exhausted.  The athletes that drank only when thirsty lasted 6 hours before temperatures reached 102 and reached exhaustion.  But the last group of athletes that drank enough water to replace all they were losing exercised up to 7 hours when researchers ended the experiment because the athletes felt they could continue indefinitely.  Their temperatures remained at a steady 99 degrees.

Pure Water Is Essential

Drinking the water isn’t our only problem.  Getting pure water is a serious problem too.  Our water is cluttered with chemicals, inorganic minerals, and pathogens.  No matter where you turn, it is contaminated.  Tap water is a risky wild card, rain water is way polluted, and spring water has too many inorganic minerals.  Even taking a shower in tap water is hazardous.

Healing WaterThe Solution

The best solution is filtering your water or drinking purified water.  Using structured water is another excellent option, arguably the best.  Ultimate Structured Water is the best unit I have seen.  You don’t have to understand all the technology to feel the difference this unit makes.  Distilled water is entrenched in controversy which brings up concerns for its long term use.  Boiling should be a last resort as it only kills pathogens.

If you boil, by the time  you see  the water bubble, all the bacteria are dead.  You don’t really even have to bring it to a boil.  The Wilderness Medical Society reports that “water temperatures above 160° F (70° C) kill all pathogens within 30 minutes and above 185° F (85° C) within a few minutes. So in the time it takes for the water to reach the boiling point (212° F or 100° C) from 160° F (70° C), all pathogens will be killed, even at high altitude.

External Therapy

Finally, the external application of water is one of the easiest and effective ways to regulate blood circulation and help the immune system fight disease.

  • Cold or cool baths are awesome tonics.
  • Warm baths soothe the nerves and open the pores to eliminate toxins.
  • Contrast baths or showers drive circulation and pump the body’s defense system into full force.

Healing Water 3Many Have Died

This use of water is all too little known or used. Many have died for want of a simple water treatment.

Indeed, water is a wonderful blessing.  It is cheap and effective in preserving health.  Every opportunity should be taken to take advantage of it as much as possible.
