Our body consists of up to 75% water. This water plays a significant role in the absorption of nutrients, waste processing, cell activities and everything needed to stay healthy and alive. Drinking sufficient water offers a big range of benefits which are truly amazing! When we don’t drink sufficient water, our body is not able to remove all toxic substances to which we are exposed.
The most important task of water is the storage and transmission of information throughout our body. In a way, water is the carrier of information. The water in the body sends signals from the brain to the controlling body parts and back again. It is a primary element for the function of all chemical and bio-electrical processes. These processes play a significant role in the building and recovery operations, far more than protein, vitamins and minerals do. In short, the success of all signals and its processes depends on the extent in which they circulate. The effectiveness, which enables signals to be passed on, depends on a proper fluid balance and structure of the water.

Needless to say, drinking sufficient water helps our body to carry out its processes appropriately, and for you to feel invigorated. With the emergence of many modern drinks like coffee, tea, soft drinks, fruit juices and alcoholic beverages, the average use of just drinking water has decreased enormously. More and more we become dehydrated (literally), together with all our organs, tissues and cells.
In his book “Your Many Cries For Water – a revolutionary natural way to prevent illness and restore good health”, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj describes in a clear and convincing way how water helps to prevent the cause of all kinds of ailments. Diseases such as obesity, high blood pressure, rheumatism, osteoarthritis, allergies, asthma, depression, dementia, and many others. He indicates how naturally and simple you can cure all these ailments by just drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day. Water is a basis of our health!
Apply Your Personal Method
By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrating. Therefore, I always keep a mug close to me, to remind myself to fill it up and drink from it. I personally prefer boiled water, but if you prefer cold water, you can fill up a jug, perhaps with some slices of lemon and mint added. Place them in your sight. When leaving the house, I always carry a bottle of water with me, either warm or cold. Meanwhile, I have collected a whole range of sustainable water bottles, appropriate for each mood and occasion.
During meals drinking lukewarm water is much preferred, because cold drinks during or after a meal will harden the fats which you consume. When stomach acid comes in contact with solid fat, the intestines absorb fat much faster than solid foods. This leads to many diseases, including cancer, this is why it is better to drink hot liquids after meals. I would suggest not to drink anything at all 2 hours after your meal, to not disturb the digestion process. Before going to bed always drink warm/hot water, optional with a squeeze of lemon juice and some grated ginger, which supports the metabolism. Optionally, you can add a little honey and cinnamon for the taste.
Quality of Water
The use of high-quality water is necessary for the way we get hydrated. Therefore, the use of a vitaliser is strongly recommended. You will not only notice a big difference in taste with your regular tap water, but also the ability of your body to absorb it and perform its functions correctly. After some time, your body will ask for more as it functions so much better with it.
Thanks to the experimental studies of the Japanese doctor Dr. Masaru Emoto we can see crystals in frozen water, which confirms the healing power of the quality and structure of water. In his book “The Message of Water” Emoto underlines the need to protect our water and ourselves by becoming aware of its significant impact. http://www.masaru-emoto.net/english/emoto.html
Don’t Medicate, Hydrate!
Improve your health in its basis. Drink pure and vital water!
