Nothing in the world can replace water — no drink, not coffee, tea or even fruit juices. All of them have their own energetic and chemical programmes. The human body is familiar with liquid that has no program; the body’s freedom depends on this liquid. Thus, we become accustomed to drinking pure spring water whenever possible.
In the body we have two types of water. One type has already been used and is not suitable for new functions. Then there is new water available for when the body needs to perform its functions. But when we give the body drinks containing sugar or caffeine, the two substances act out their own chemical programmes within the body. They thwart the purpose of clean water. Non-alcoholic drinks, lemonades, coffee or tea containing caffeine — none of these can replace the role of pure water in the body. In addition, alcohol interrupts the filtration system of the body, dehydrates it and manifests itself in high blood pressure.
Water versus Chronic Disease
There exist many diseases which are related to dehydration. The majority of medicines people use hide the symptoms and complications of dehydration in the human body. The human body shows its dehydration in a number of symptoms and complaints. In other words, the brain perceives dehydration or fatigue throughout the day, or first thing in the morning. Anger, snap responses, and depressionare are all signs of dehydration, when the brain does not have enough energy from water to process information or make decisions. Then the body has its program for dealing with dryness, such as allergies, hypertension, diabetes and a weakened immune system.
The problem with our body is that it starts a program for dealing with dryness and then, allergies are exhibited (which are signs of dehydration), because the system that regulates the increase of water in the body puts pressure on the immune system in this energetically difficult situation. Then one can come down with asthma. In breathing, we lose about a liters of water daily. This water needs to be replenished. If not, the body squeezes the bronchi, and the pockets are clogged. We call this reduction of bronchial air flow a result of dehydration and denote it with the term asthma. It’s thought that asthma, especially in children, can be relieved with a hydration program within a few days.
Thirst as a Symptom
We should not wait for thirst in order to drink. Water is our main source of energy. Since we don‘t wait for our automobile tank to become completely dry before filling up, why should we wait until our body is thirsty before adding water? We should never allow ourselves to get thirsty. The average person requires about 4 liters of water daily, but 2 is the minimum. We get another 2 liters during the metabolism of our food and the water content in our foods.
