How To Re-hydrate Your Body
To prepare your body for treatment avoid all dehydrating activities and take around two to three litres of purified water daily, The amount of water intake needed varies from person to person, and the easiest way to judge what is the right amount of fluid intake for you is to monitor the colour of your urine. If the urine is concentrated, its colour will tend to be darker meaning you are de-hydrated and need a higher fluid intake. When the body is properly hydrated the urine is clear and light yellowish in colour. It is there a wise preventative health strategy to monitor the colour of your urine regularly.
De-hydrating Activities To Be Avoided
Inadequate fluid intake; Increased fluid loss; diuretic drinks: tea, coffee, alcohol, soft sparkling drinks, chocolate and sugary drinks; Over challenging food such as over-processed and junk food, unclean food, the wrong choice of food, poor food combining, eating food out of season, late evening meals, etc; Drugs: prescribed and social including vaccines and tobacco; Exposure to toxic chemical pollution such as pesticides and heavy metals; electrical pollution such as noise, VDU and mobile phones and psychological pollution namely stress; Breaking of natural rules such as not living in tune with the season with regard to behaviour and food…etc.
The Most Common Symptoms Of Dehydration
- Lack of thirst
- Tendency to dry skin, flaky skin and dandruff, fluid retention, congestion and swelling;
- Disturbed water metabolism usually manifested as excessive discharging bodily activities and dryness present at the same time; for example running nose and dry patches of the skin, weepy eyes and vaginal dryness;
- Inflammation and allergy as a dehydrated body produces histamines that trigger allergic and inflammatory responses;
- Feeling low in energy;
- Immune system dysfunction often manifested as low immune response with consequent frequent inflammations.
The dehydrated body produces increased amount of cholesterol and places it inside cells to protect them from further fluid loss. This ‘cholesterisation’ of the cell is meant to be a protective compensatory mechanism of the body, but only for a short period of time. As soon as water intake is increased, the hydration is restored and the body stops producing excess cholesterol. Unfortunately, the most typical symptom of dehydration is the loss of sense of thirst, the situation where temporary dehydration easily turns into a habit and therefore becomes chronic. The cholesterol then continues to build up, blocking the effective use of fatty acids and other micronutrients by the cell, and decreasing the cellular overall physiological responsiveness to biochemical and energetic stimuli, such as hormones, for example. This will, in the long-term, further increase stagnation and toxicity, building up a high cholesterol levels, priming the body towards high blood pressure, heart problems, etc.
