Dr Price’s Total Health Tips
Tip #19: Water

 

Why does your body need water? 

If the body has a lack of water it cannot easily dump toxins out of the liver, as it cannot do the process necessary to breakdown and eliminate the toxins. This lack of hydration can cause fatigue and irritability. The joints need a perfect balance of minerals to work properly. Lack of water causes an imbalance and a loss of minerals that should flow through the joints; this can cause inflammation, pain and arthritis. Cells in the skin need water and lack of it can cause dry skin, especially in the winter. Water reduces appetite and is a great aid in weight loss.  

Digestion is simply placing water molecules between the molecules of food so it can be carried through the intestinal wall and used for energy and repair of the body. Without enough water the digestive system can't break apart the food properly for absorption and this can cause a toxic colon, digestive troubles and malnutrition. Also, fifty percent of all the waste products in the body are eliminated through the kidney and without proper hydration the kidney has a difficult time doing this function.  

How much water does a body need? 

The normal water requirement for the body is ½ ounce for every pound of weight. If you weigh 140 pounds you need 70 ounces of water per day. If you are exercising or sweating then the amount should be increased by about ½ ounce per minute of sweating or exercise.  

Water is the one thing that the body needs to have for every life-giving activity to happen.  

What if I drink coffee? 

Caffeinated drinks dehydrate the body, not hydrate. Someone who drinks caffeinated drinks, such as coffee, tea, or energy drinks, should have two servings of water for every serving of the caffeinated drink they consume.  

For years some people have said that you do not get the hydration that you need from drinking juices, milk, etc. I have found that, in fact, the liquid you get from juices, milk, and the like; do assist in the body functions, just as straight water. 

 

What are the symptoms of dehydration? 

These mild dehydration symptoms are often (but not limited to):

  • Thirst
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Headaches
  • Constipation/poor digestion
  • Mental fatigue
  • Dry skin
  • Dark colored urine
  • Dry mouth
 

What will assist me in staying Hydrated? 

I have formulated the “Super Hydration Formula”. Water alone without electrolytes, a.k.a. minerals such as salt, potassium, and calcium will not properly hydrate the body. 

With the Advanced Bio-Availability of our special formula I created a mild pleasant tasting powder blend of Salt and Potassium as well as all 5 major ELECTROLYTES plus extra minerals to help prevent dehydration. Simply add a scoop into your water bottle and drink.
