The Most Important Supplement but Often the Most Neglected

No matter where you live, a wet region or a dry region, pure drinking water is of utmost importance to your body.

The average human has about 50 quarts of water in his or her body. Most of this water is found between the cells, bathing and lubricating them.

The wettest part of the body, blood, is 83% water; the driest, tooth enamel, is 2 percent. (From The Cousteau almanac: An inventory of life on our water planet.)

Only 1% of the world's water is drinkable, the remaining 99% is either unusable seawater or ice. There won't be more water, or new water, just the same molecules, used or stored, evaporated or frozen, re-circulated and reused by human and beast, for better or worse, forever. (Does this make you think, "What can I do to help protect our water sources? ")

The Importance of Water...

I know most of us have heard that we need to drink 8-10 glasses a day. WOW! That seems like a lot.

I know it has been hard for me to drink that much, but once I found out how much good water does for me, I decided it was worth the effort.

I used to drink a lot of soda and then switched to diet drinks and drink mixes sweetened with artificial sweeteners. But the sugar in the sodas was creating havoc in my body plus I was putting on the pounds and the artificial stuff I have since learned is pretty scary.

So now I drink pretty much only water and I try to drink filtered water because tap water really isn't that clean and bottled water has even fewer regulations and a lot of times more nasty stuff in it than tap water does.

As I was reading information about our body and water, I was amazed at how much it really does for us. I am a Physics teacher and have been involved with science pretty much all my life, but i was blissfully unaware of so much of this information.

One more step towards a healthier you....

one more stepThink about it.

The choice is yours.

One more piece in the puzzle of good health. The body will maintain optimal health if we only give it what it needs.

Water is one of the most important things your body needs.

Just a word of caution, not all water is of equal quality. Pure water is amazing; however, if your water is toxic or polluted the benefits of getting more water might be outweighed by the harmful effects of the toxins.

Most of us don't like water because it has a strange taste. It is possible to get rid of the bad taste.

Your Health and Water

Much of the information on this page can be attributed to the work of Dr. Feyedoon Batmanghelidj, a London-educated physician who was a political prisoner in Iran in 1979. His job was to provide medical care for the thousands of prisoners who were awaiting trial or in some cases, execution.

It was there that he collected more than 3,000 case histories of people who he feels were remarkably helped by drinking increased amounts of water and whose variety of ailments he felt were related to dehydration. He is the author of a book titled, Your Body's Many Cries for Water.

To quote Dr. Batmanghelidj:

"Who in his/her right mind would want to take toxic chemicals when all that their body needs is water -- free water -- natural water, the ultimate medication of choice to cure pain and prevent disease?"
