Get Enough Water To Restore Your Health And Energy

Did you drink enough water today? Probably not. Many of us suffer from chronic dehydration and may not even know it. The body is designed to adjust to numerous environmental conditions, and lack of water is a good example. Over time, the normal signals that tell us to drink water become less sensitive. We simply do not feel as thirsty as we should. Instead, other signs can manifest:
  • Allergies: Dehydration causes histamine levels to spike. Subsequently, your immune system can become imbalanced. These conditions promote the onset of dust, pollen, mold and animal allergies.
  • Digestive problems: Constipation and acid reflux are signs of chronic dehydration. Optimal hydration is necessary to keep all functions of the digestive tract running smoothly.
  • Depression, irritability or mental fog: The brain relies on a consistent, large blood supply. With dehydration, this critical circulation is reduced, resulting in mental and emotional imbalances. In extreme cases, temporary mental impairment results. Dehydration and stress can also be a vicious cycle. High levels of circulating stress hormones further increase dehydration in the body. You need to relieve stress and keep well hydrated to break this cycle.
  • Constant snacking: Persistent sugar cravings, for example, can be a surprising sign of imbalances caused by dehydration. We often mistake hunger for thirst. That’s why many people grab a sugary snack when actually their body is crying out for hydrating fluids.
Don’t Let Your Engine Burn Out
What are the consequences of chronic dehydration? You may feel dizzy and fatigued, suffer from headaches or experience any of the related issues above. It’s the long-term consequences that are most concerning, however.
Ideally, water makes up more than half our body mass, so to say it’s important for good health would be an understatement. It’s essential. Think of blood, the most important bodily fluid. It carries oxygen throughout the body and removes carbon dioxide while transporting nutrients, immune cells and antibodies. More than 83 percent of blood volume is water; so when we’re chronically dehydrated, we simply don’t have enough blood flowing through our bodies.
Water is also a key driver of the body’s signaling mechanisms. Cells are constantly talking to each other as they share information, maintain their locations and even determine if a neighboring cell is malfunctioning. Water forms a large part of the highway on which signaling molecules travel. As a result, dehydration can have a negative effect on functions right down to the cellular level. Over time, this can result in chronic inflammation and numerous degenerative diseases.
In the big picture, dehydration impacts our daily lives. We feel sluggish and tired. Athletic activities become more difficult. Our mental and physical performance is significantly impaired. Our emotions can become unbalanced. We are simply not ourselves.
Water Wars
Twenty years ago, getting a drink of water was a pretty simple operation: You went to the tap and filled your glass. However, since then, our consumer water choices have exploded, and that is not necessarily a good thing. There are countless selections of filtered, treated and bottled waters — a situation that sets up two dilemmas. First, how do you choose? What objective measures can you apply to make that decision? And second, how do you know the water you have chosen is actually pure?
Water purity is a serious issue. We have been led to believe that bottled water has fewer contaminants than tap water. This is not always the case. A number of studies have found numerous contaminants, including bacteria and chemicals, in bottled waters. In addition, bottled water companies have no legal requirement to test their product. Compare this to tap water, which is much more rigorously tested. Furthermore — most bottled water comes in toxic plastic containers which leach health-robbing chemicals into the water, especially in the heat, when you need good hydration the most.
So let’s go back to the first question: Which brand should you choose? I would say none. Given that as many as 50 percent of bottled waters are simply filtered tap water, does it make sense to pay up to $4 a gallon (not including the extra gas to visit the store) for something you can get for pennies in your own home? And with all the uncertainty over bottled water purity, what exactly are we paying for? Even recycling has its own cost.
The Filter Solution
My best advice is to invest in a high-quality filtration system. Carbon block filtration systems have been shown to be some of the most effective in removing a broad range of microbial and chemical contaminants from drinking water. Purification systems such as reverse osmosis systems and water distillers do an excellent job of removing contaminants, but they also remove essential trace minerals that are naturally present in our water. If you do choose distilled or reverse osmosis-treated water, it’s important to supplement with extra trace minerals.
How much should we drink? Eight cups daily is a good marker, but that’s only a starting point. As always, other factors must be taken into account, such as age, activity, body weight and environment. Keep a glass of fresh water near you while you work, and don’t let your busy schedule get in the way of good hydration. Drinking plenty of water is a very simple way to maintain long-term health. It also offers rapid, noticeable results in terms of increased energy and vitality. Drink up!

Green Tea: Kidney Stone Kryptonite

Good news for tea lovers: Even though iced tea has been associated with the formation of kidney stones due to its high oxalate content, there is one tea that you can keep on the menu without fear — and that’s green tea.
study conducted by the Department of Urology at Seoul National University College of Medicine and Clinical Research showed that specific green tea polyphenols, known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), inhibited free-radical production induced by oxalate, thereby diminishing production of crystals formations that could become kidney stones. The scientists’ conclusion was that green tea had a definite inhibitory effect on kidney stone formation.
A similar study undertaken by researchers at Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences in Nagoya City, Aichi, Japan, came to the exact same conclusion.
In addition, iced green tea contains less than 2 mg of oxalate per serving compared to iced black tea, which contains more than 10 mg per serving.
Long revered for its health benefits, green tea is also associated with a reduced risk for cancers of the skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal and bladder.

Potential To Fight Infection With Vitamin B3

According to Dr. George Liu, an infectious disease expert at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, lab tests of vitamin B3 show that in super-high doses (not the kind you can get in food or supplements), the nutrient may be “surprisingly effective in fighting off and protecting against one of today’s most concerning public health threats.”
That threat is antibiotic-resistant staph infections that are increasingly common around the world, have killed thousands and can pose a significant threat to public health.
The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation by researchers from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University (OSU), UCLA and other institutions.
Co-first authors Pierre Kyme and Nils Thoennissen found that when used in human blood, clinical mega-doses of vitamin B3 appeared to wipe out the staph infection in only a few hours. However, there is no evidence yet that normal diets or conventional-strength supplements of vitamin B3 would have any beneficial effect in preventing or treating bacterial infection. Researcher Adrian Gombart, of the Linus Pauling Institute says that people should not start taking high doses of the vitamin.
“This is potentially very significant, although we still need to do human studies,” says Gombart. “Antibiotics are wonder drugs, but they face increasing problems with resistance by various types of bacteria, especiallyStaphylococcus aureus.
“This could give us a new way to treat staph infections that can be deadly, and might be used in combination with current antibiotics,” Gombart says. “It’s a way to tap into the power of the innate immune system and stimulate it to provide a more powerful and natural immune response.”

Big Pharma Wants Your Money And Your Life

When we say we “caught a cold” or we “caught the flu,” we are promoting establishment medicine and huge profits for them. All of the vaccination and immunization industry is based on a germ theory of disease, which simply says that viruses and bacteria are transferred from one person to another by “germs.” Almost nobody questions this dogma.
Yet if we think about it for a minute, it’s downright foolish. Such foolishness flows to unthinking masses that live by medical-establishment propaganda.
Disease Lies
If John Doe or Mary Sue in a community “catches” a virus, then the germ theory says that everyone who comes in contact with either of these two will “catch” the virus. We absolutely know that this is not true. We also know that in the flu epidemic of 1918 or any other disease epidemic, not all who came in contact with the virus got sick. There is no applied external immunity. Immunity is internal.
This in no way implies that we should be careless with personal hygiene and sanitation. It is the human organism that provides its own immunity; otherwise, the human race would have been extinct for thousands of years.
Many people walked and worked in the midst of the bubonic plague and did not die or even get sick. Ninety percent of the people are reported to have died. All may be true, but what about the 10 percent who survived? Nothing else needs to be known to refute the germ theory of disease.
Profitable Vaccines
Vaccines are for profit upon the bodies of infants, children and adults. Legally speaking, under the pretense of immunization health, almost all ages are under assault. “The lowest forms of filth known to man are injected into the unknowing population.” (From the book Bacteria, Inc.)
We are told and intimidated over and over by medical propaganda that we must be protected internally from diseases that originate in the external environment.
Against the assault of these “microscopic organism” bacteria, we are told that we must protect ourselves with immunizing shots for smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, typhoid, colds, influenza, pneumonia, scarlet fever, whooping cough and many other invading armies of disease microbes.
All authorities — from the Federal government down to the clinics and school personnel — embrace this myth as gospel. And the Federal government, in symbiotic fraternity with the drug cartel, even pays for many shots. The people, sick and poor, don’t have a chance against this assault. Why do they not guarantee us to be disease-free? Where is the “Science of Preventive Medicine?”
Promises Of Protection
Countless new serums and vaccines are developed with the promise of perfect protection from the ravages of external and communicable disease. Scientists know that bacteria cannot ferment or decompose living tissue. Instead, bacteria feed on broken-down body cells. Until it can be shown that bacteria or viruses have an affinity for healthy cells, the belief that they cause disease will remain unsupportable. Instead, bacteria are scavengers that keep the body clean.
Misguided Theory
“Immunization to date has been based on the Ehrlich theory that the inoculation of disease products in sub-pathogenic doses creates antibodies, or defending entities, against any subsequent mass invasion. Not only is there no evidence of these so-called antibodies being formed, but there is ground for believing that the injected germ proteins hybridize with the body proteins to form new tribes, half-animal and half-human, whose characteristics and effects cannot be predicted. Even non-toxic bacterial substances sometimes hybridize with serum albumins to form specific poisons which continue to multiply, breed and cross-breed ad infinitum, doing untold harm as its reproductivity may continue while life lasts.” (From Bacteria, Inc. pp 19ff)
The marked increase of old diseases in children and adults and the development of new ones parallel the expansion of “preventive medicine” and warrant suspicion and examination. All originate because commercialism is the God of modern medicine.

Busy Parents, Fat Children

American children are eating excess amounts of processed foods that contribute to the Nation’s snowballing childhood obesity epidemic. Busy lifestyles of both mothers and fathers are a big part of the blame.
Research shows that America’s full-time employed mothers spend about 3.5 fewer hours a day considering matters of their children’s exercise and nutritional requirements than their stay-at-home peers. American fathers are even less involved. Dads with full-time jobs average only about 13 daily minutes of consideration to these concerns. Even unemployed fathers devote only 41 minutes, according to an Economics of Human Biology study.
Parents feed their kids nutritionally questionable items when they also frequently buy items at the fast-food drive-thru or purchase prepackaged and frozen meals that are generally less nutritious than fresh, whole foods.
“It’s inaccurate to pin rising childhood obesity rates on women, given that husbands pick up so little of the slack,” cautions lead study author John Cawley, professor of policy analysis and management at Cornell’s College of Human Ecology. “For example, mothers who choose to work might be those who enjoy cooking less and who would cook less whether working or not.”
Cawley says the findings underscore the reasons why American schools should offer nutritious lunches and rigorous physical education programs.

Lasting Weight Loss More Difficult After Menopause

A study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has found that even if older, post-menopausal women are successful at losing weight, keeping the weight off for a long time is a bigger challenge.
Lead investigator Bethany Barone Gibbs, Ph.D., of the University of Pittsburgh department of health and physical activity, explains that a number of factors work against long-term weight loss.
“Not only does motivation decrease after you start losing weight, there are physiological changes, including a decreased resting metabolic rate. Appetite-related hormones increase. Researchers studying the brain are now finding that you have enhanced rewards and increased motivation to eat when you’ve lost weight,” Gibbs says.
These findings demonstrate that post-menopausal women need special strategies against regaining weight.
Eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat and cheese may be especially helpful.
“If the goal is to reduce the burden of obesity, the focus must be on long-term strategies because changes in eating behaviors only associated with short-term weight loss are likely to be ineffective and unsustainable,” Gibbs says.
