Water For Life
While some bodies can last up to three weeks without food, without water the consensus is three days. Although some say eight to ten is possible, bottom line is we need water for basic survival. The body often tells you what it needs. Feeling irritable, cracked lips, tired and having a headache are all signs of mild to moderate dehydration. Especially in children, their behavior changes dramatically When we notice our children's play escalating, to catch it before it gets out of hand we tell them to get some water as a mood stabilizer it works wonders.
During summer months the reminder is more apparent but with heating systems drying us out and the change in pressure pulling moisture out of the air in the winter we consume way less water in colder climates. Our amazing bodies work to do the job they were set to do for us at birth and if we notice the subtle messages we can have positive influence with ourselves by keeping our cells hydrated.
P.S. Did you know that we digest everything that we touch and put in our mouths? Yes even water is broken down to the smallest compounds and reconstituted. Small enough to go through cilia in the digestive system. So overloading your system with too much water too fast can put a strain on an already taxing job of filtering the many components of water.
So I have a question? Are you thirsty?
