In a state of dehydration, body cells cannot assimilate nutrients, remove waste and relieve pain from conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia. Dehydration also occurs as a side effect of caffeine, sugar and processed food consumption, exercise and the use of certain medications.
Humans need hydrogen to survive. It is the key to long life and anti-aging. However, due to mass food production, mineral deficient soil, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, over-processing of foods, chemical preservatives, and drinking over-chlorinated/over-fluoridated water, people do not get enough Hydrogen ions daily. Body cells become damaged, hydration levels decrease and cells age.
Dramatic breakthroughs in overcoming disease are being published in some of the world’s most prestigious scientific journals as a result of the hydration movement. At the same time, thousands of Scientists and Medical Doctors around the world like F.… Read the rest
Allergies plague thousands of people every year. Some people experience wheezing as part of their allergic response but they don’t have a diagnosis of asthma. The weepy eyes, runny nose, pounding headache and cough are characteristic signs of an allergic response. The root causes may shock you.
Allergies are caused by a histamine reaction in the body. Histamine is one of the body’s main neurotransmitters. It has two functions in the body. It has a major role in the immune system and it regulates available water in the body.
People think of histamine as the cause of allergies so that is why people take anti-histamines to relieve the symptoms of an allergic response. What most people don’t know is that histamine is in charge of water regulation in the body.… Read the rest
Turbidity is the measure of water clarity. The more suspended solids in the water, the cloudier it becomes. Here on the west coast of Canada, most of our drinking water is rain water. When it runs off the hills, it picks up sediment and it flows into the reservoirs. This murkiness not only affects the waters “drinkability”, the suspended particles absorb heat from the sun and warm the water. The warmer water holds less oxygen and is less healthy to drink.
When the water becomes cloudy, extra chlorine is added to kill any organisms attached to the particulate matter. When the chlorine comes in contact with organic matter in the water, a chemical reaction takes place which creates toxic chlorine by-products that you really don’t want to be drinking.… Read the rest
Yes, water in containers is now more expensive than gasoline. Every bottle of water will soon be worth more than gold. What is it about bottled water other than convenience that makes it so expensive? It has no fabulous taste, It doesn’t have protein or carbs. Some of the waters are vitamin-enhanced but they don’t have essential fats or other health promoting supplements. The truth is, it is the labor and transportation to get the water to market that is the most expensive.
Water, pure, clean water is more important to your body than you realize. It is interesting to note that up to 90 percent of the population is dehydrated. A lot of people drink no water at all. They prefer drinks that taste good and that they like.… Read the rest
Excerpted from Water for Health, for Healing, for Life by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
Let me give you the single most effective prescription for well-being, improved health,disease prevention, potentially reversible stages of degenerative diseases—and finally the best pain medicine in the world. It needs no doctor’s prescription. It is freely available. It costs nothing. It has no dangerous side effects. It is the medication your body cries for when it is stressed. It is good old plain, natural water—ready cash for the industrial systems of the body. Every twenty-four hours the body recycles the equivalent of forty thousand glasses of water to maintain its normal physiological functions. It does this every day of its life.
Within this pattern of water metabolism and its recycling process, and depending on environmental conditions, the body becomes short of about six to ten glasses of water each day.… Read the rest

Do you drink reverse osmosis or distilled water? Why? Was it recommended to you by a health practitioner? Do you believe that it is the healthiest water for your body because it has nothing in it? Did you know that every bottle of reverse osmosis, distilled, or de-ionized water sold in Europe used to contain a skull and crossbones on the label with a warning? Do you know that the European label states that these waters are only to be used for steam irons and batteries, and not to be given to pets? If Europeans won’t drink these waters or feed them to their pets, then do you really think it’s okay for you to drink them?… Read the rest
Most of us know how good it feels to be out in the sun. It is such a delight to feel the warmth of the sun on our skin. Its brightness often lifts our mood. We even seem to be more motivated to accomplish tasks at hand when the sun is shining.
Sunlight contains two types of light. The light you can see is the visible light. When you see a rainbow, you are looking at the seven colors which make up visible light. The invisible light is made up of infrared and ultraviolet rays.
Infrared rays naturally come from the sun and they are the healthiest and the most comforting. They have the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin.… Read the rest
In results published in the Jan 2007 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology, Spanish researchers found that chlorinated water poses health risks by drinking it, swimming in or showering in it, or breathing in the fumes from hot showers, swimming pools, hot tubs and baths.
Researchers studied a total of 1219 men and women with bladder cancer and had them fill out questionnaires about their exposure to chlorinated water from various sources. The results were compared to 1271 men and women as controls who did not have the disease. They also compared the average levels of chlorine and chlorine by-products in the water in the 123 areas where the studied individuals lived. Their findings were quite alarming:
Drinking chlorinated water increased the risk of bladder cancer by 35%.… Read the rest
ABC News reports that the US Environmental Protection has come under scrutiny from the American Congress for the state of US drinking water. Congress wants to know why the Safe Drinking Water Act has not been enforced to the point that tap water in many areas of the country is dangerous to drink.
The Safe Drinking Water Act was enacted in 1974 but many aspects of the act snarl enforcement in red tape. For example the Act does not authorize the EPA to monitor drinking water in schools directly. Instead the EPA depends on the water providers for the schools to ensure that the water is safe to drink, in addition to relying on the state monitoring systems to check up on the water providers and prosecute violations.… Read the rest
For a long time now, we’ve been hearing that drinking 8 glasses of water a day is optimum. Current research and scientific measuring has shown this to be highly inaccurate for a long of people. Holistic health experts are now recommending you drink half your body weight in ounces if you have a minimal activity level. In other words, if you are 200 pounds, you sit at a desk all day and you go for a walk every day, you need 100 ounces of water every day. But not just any water will do.
You see, it doesn’t matter how much water you drink, it is how much water that is absorbed into the cells that counts.
You can drink lots and lots of water, but if the water you drink goes galloping through, it won’t get where it needs to go.… Read the rest
