Pain Can Often Be Easily Cured
Is this why you hurt?
• Does your head ache when you wake up and it isn’t a hangover?
• Do you feel exhausted for no apparent reason?
• Does your back hurt or other muscles without a known injury?
• Are your eyes, skin, and hair dry?
• Are you constipated?
• Do you feel dizzy or light headed when you stand up?
• Is it difficult to give blood because they can’t find your vein?
• Is your urine dark?
• Are your lips chapped and face tight?
These are all symptoms of dehydration. It is totally possible that these issues can drastically decrease or completely go away just by drinking more water.
Our body is around 60% water and our brain is 70% water. Our blood is almost all water. Water is what allows everything else in our body to function.
Our organs and blood have first dibs on any water that is present in our body. If there is not enough water to go around, our blood and organs actually pull water away from muscles and skin in order to keep us alive. When muscles and joints do not have enough water in them to make things slippery, they hurt. If your brain does not have water to be able to send messages back and forth, you feel foggy and even depressed. Water is the foundation ingredient which allows you to live comfortably.
I had a client once when I was a massage therapist and when I asked her about how much water she drinks, she actually said, “I drink 8 cokes a day.” She actually thought that I would be pleased because she thought that was equal to 8 glasses of water. I just about jumped out of my skin! The only thing that is equal to water is water. Nothing else can compare.
It is true that fruits and vegetables have water in them but most people do not eat nearly enough to supply the needs of our body. Coffee, alcohol, actually dehydrate the body so you need to drink even more water.
I could go on and on about the benefits of water. All you need to know really is try adding more and find out for yourself if it helps you feel better.
I always say, love your body, love your water.
