Dehydration causes many common Ailments and Illnesses

Dehydration causes many common ailments and illnesses. Nearly all benefit and many cases be prevented with adequate intake of healthy water to regulate our body‘s natural fluid levels. The best way to prevent‚ treat‚ and in many cases possibly cure illness is to give our body the right things it needs and let it go to work. With the proper intake of healthy water‚ the right minerals and nutrients‚ our body can overcome almost anything.

An increased intake of water and the proper immune enhancing herbs, vitamins, and minerals combined with a little patience and common sense is the best defense against most infections. Allowing our body with its amazing ability to overcome minor infections with fever‚ fluids(water), and rest increases our natural resistance and makes us less susceptible to these intruders in the future. Truly the best offense is a good "defense."

Here are some ailments that effect many of us and how good clean drinking water can help our bodies do what they where created to do.

Headaches...

Our brain is over 75% water. When it detects a shortage of available fluids it implements a water rationing process by producing histamines‚ causing pain and fatigue. Histamines are released as a warning signal that something is wrong. This is meant to slow us down and help conserve water. When we take antihistamines or medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen we are just turning off the signal thus allow the problem to progress. Two cups of water and a 20 minute break may overcome most common headaches.


Back Pain...

Is often the result of a deficiency in body fluid levels. Our discs in our back are in reality little hydraulic shock absorbers. These discs are made up of an outer shell and filled with fluid‚ primarily water. A properly hydrated disk creates a cushion that absorbs the shock of physical activity and supports the weight of the upper body. When these discs become dehydrated‚ the outer shell has to support a larger portion of the load causing pain‚ swelling and can possibly lead to more serious problems.


Hypertension...

Is very often a result of the body adjusting to blood volume loss. The most common cause is dehydration. Blood is more than 83% water and is heavily affected by the level of available water in our body. When the body detects a loss of blood volume‚ it closes off less active capillary beds to maintain blood flow to the more active areas. These vessel closings cause a rise in tension inside the muscle mass which we‘ve come to know as "hypertension." More water allows proper blood volumes and less tension.


Arthritis Pain and Stiffness...

Is now understood to be a result of increased friction and swelling in the joints. Water is what our body uses to lubricate these joints. When our water levels are reduced there is increased friction between the cartilage surfaces resulting in swelling‚ stiffness and pain. An increased intake of water and gentle rhythmic movements of the joints can ease‚ and in many cases‚ overcome minor arthritic pain.


Morning Sickness...

Is a direct result of dehydration. The fetus lives in a world of water and the body prioritizes its needs above all others in the body. During the night the uterus draws water from the mothers system to maintain its internal fluid levels and those of the fetus. In the morning the mother awakens in a state of dehydration‚ nausea‚ and fatigue. Drinking some water before bed and upon waking may help to elevate those symptoms.
