Is water healthy? It has been on my list for a long time: a blog about the importance of water.
In Kenya there I experienced what drinking too little water does with my body and how necessary it is to drink enough. Drinking Water Sources. Without drinking enough water, I was dull, moody, I was wading in my head, stomach ache, headache, and sleeping badly. Water is the basis of your health and energy level, because actually we are largely water. Let me explain this.
Many things in nature are very logical and simple in the base. Our body is in the ideal situation for about 75% of salty water. In other words, all of our body cells should preferably contain 75% of water. Our brains consist of 85% water and float in a salty liquid. In particular, our brains are sensitive to a certain degree of dehydration. Load of cotton wool in your head? Drink two large glasses of water, take a deep breath, walk around and the wats are probably solved. I always work fine with me. Therefore, remember that water is a very important nutrient that plays a dominant role in all kinds of processes in your body that can keep your organs healthy and cause you to experience energy or not.
Blood normally consists of 94% of water, if you drink at least enough water. If not, this percentage will decrease. The blood in your body is an important fluid that transports oxygen and nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals. At the same time it causes the discharge of excess metabolites, such as heat and carbon dioxide. With water in our blood, our blood becomes thinner and transport is faster. Water flows faster through a tube than syrup. Your blood is filtered through your kidneys about 36 times a day, in total about 180 liters of blood. Nurses can see when blood is taken if someone drinks a lot or less water; the less water, the soot is the blood. If you want the internal transport of nutrients and waste to run smoothly and your kidneys are not overloaded by syrup, take care of enough water in your blood. Just by drinking enough; Your body will make sure that it is where it is needed. Beautiful right?
Actually I should drink more water. The Iranian doctor Dr. F. Batmanghelidj (he's in my mind as "Mr. Batman" :-)) has written several books about the importance of drinking water. Among other things, he explains a relationship between so-called psychiatric disorders and dehydration. He mentions symptoms that, according to him, indicate dehydration such as:
Feel tired without reasonable explanation
Feeling irritable and anxious
You feel depressed and depressed
Have a heavy head
Restless sleep, especially in the elderly
When it comes to physical symptoms of your body after dehydration he calls:
Burning stomach acid
Lower back pain
Rheumatic joint pain
Pain in the intestines
These are the first signs of dehydration of your body according to Dr. Batmanghelidj. I experienced them myself in hot Kenya, where it was not always possible to drink enough water. Pain in the body is, according to Dr Batmanghelidj, an emergency call of the body for water. He then mentions a series of diseases that can arise from prolonged dehydration. He mentions, among other things,
Osteoporosis (bone loss)
Osteoarthritis (joints of joints)
The list in his book is long, but I mention the most common female diseases and diseases here. His most famous statement is "You're not sick, you're thirsty". I do not agree with everything he writes, for example, he says that menopause is a phenomenon of dehydration and that there were formerly women who had children in their 70s. I doubt this. But his insights, theory and practice experiences with patients are interesting enough to gain knowledge. Tap water is not healthy anymore, therefore filter.
