Does Your Body Really Cry for Water??

On water…Dr. B (as Tony refers to) the Author of Your Body’s Many Cries for Water (I highly recommend – my dad and sister first told me about it years ago!) has a foundation called www.thewatercure.com. His foundation was a great supporter of my natural health magazine in the UK and we worked together on bringing his books there and they provided advertising and articles regularly. I was not fortunate enough to know Dr B. when he was alive so it is inspiring to see his foundation sharing and continuing his work.   See the website above for GREAT articles of the WHY water is good for you and to get the book!

Another thing I learned in school from Dr. John Douillard (I so love him), an Ayervedic doctor, is to do an experiment with yourself. Sip hot water daily every 10 minutes for two weeks. 1. it gets your lymphatic system moving and draining as it should and 2. it will tell you immediately if you are dehydrated as you will start to want to drink more water. MOST everyone today does NOT get enough water.  And in fact, it can actually show up internally where your joints and connective tissue start to get dehydrated as well.  Showing up as aches and pains that we often explain away in the form of “age” or “overuse”.  Really, over time, a lot of that can be prevented with proper hydration.

Think of your mornings and afternoons.  If you need coffee, sugar, snacks, and extra food to get you through your daily slumps, just know that you could try water first and see if that helps.  Before your morning cup of coffee, which is the first thing people drink these days, reach for a clean glass of water and wait for 30 minutes before doing the coffee.  Before long you will find yourself drinking less coffee or not even needing it.  If you’re hungry for a snack – try drinking a glass of water before taking the snack. (even if it’s a piece of candy!)  9 times out of 10 you will curb that hunger as we often mistake hunger pains for a need for food rather than water!

Our consumption of anything BUT water is so off the charts high these days that we are literally aging ourselves to death.  Take the water challenge this week and before you reach for the bottle, can, or cup of anything but H2O, make a conscious effort to do the water first and see if you feel:

1. Energetic!
2. Happier!
3. And skinnier!!
