"Water is not only the most essential substance next to oxygen for human life. It is also complex, often containing hundreds of dissolved minerals and chemicals. Most water is also “structured” or clustered in complex ways. It is indeed a marvelous substance whose extreme value is often unrecognized.
This is the most important part of this article. Otherwise, the recommendations below will not make sense.
1. The type and amount of water one drinks is an essential aspect of health and healing. Every week, I encounter a person who is not progressing on a healing program due to drinking an improper type or not enough drinking water. If this continues for several years, it can ruin one’s health.
2. Using any amount of caffeine, sugars (including fruit and juices), or alcohol tends to dehydrate the body by causing water loss.
3. The material in this article is based wholly on clinical experience. Theories abound regarding which water to drink and how much. What is important is what works in the body to promote health.
4. Water is more than a beverage. It is a particular type of energy that we need in a certain amount on a daily basis. If we do not obtain it, health is negatively impacted.
5. Pure water processed only by nature is a type of “whole food”. It not only flushes toxins from the body and supplies many needed minerals, but impacts the body in many other subtle ways. Like other whole foods, when it is tampered with, water loses most of its precious healing properties. Water is tampered with any time one adds anything to it, filters it using anything except pure carbon, spins it, alkalinizes it, and perhaps does other things to it. All of these manipulations tend to ruin it, in my experience.
Oddly, packaging it in plastic jugs, even the cloudy type of plastic water containers found in the supermarket, does not ruin its properties, although it will add a little contamination to it.
Also, I find that running water through copper or steel pipes also does not ruin it, as many health authorities contend.
6. Most people do not drink enough pure water. Adults need about 3 quarts or 3 liters daily, and perhaps a little more if you weigh over 250 pounds or 110 kilograms, do physical labor or vigorous exercise daily, and perhaps more if one lives in a very dry or hot climate.
1. As stated above, every adult needs to drink about 3 quarts or 3 liters (about 96 ounces) of water daily, with no exceptions. It you weigh over about 250 pounds, have a very physical job or do a lot of physical exercise daily, or perhaps live in a very hot and dry climate, you may need a little more.
Drinking more than this, by the way, is not as good. If someone claims to need a gallon of water or more daily, for example, I immediately start checking to see if their water is hydrating the body properly, or if some other condition might be causing this degree of thirst.
Other beverages such as coffee, tea, juices, or others do not tend to hydrate the body nearly as well, and are discussed below. Please do not count other beverages as water intake, except perhaps for a cup or two of mild herbal, non-caffeinated tea such as chamomile tea.
Also, do not drink with meals. Drink only enough with meals to take your nutritional supplements, and no more. One small cup of water is usually okay. More than this will dilute the stomach acid and harm digestion quite a lot, in some cases.
An excellent idea is to drink about a quart of water upon arising and at least half an hour before breakfast. This will usually provoke a bowel movement and gets the day off to a good start. When you wake up, just sit and drink a quart of water!"
Reverse osmosis, structured water may work well in our spray tank, but our body needs minerals. That expensive filter in our fridge took them out for the last six months!
Don't believe everything you read but I found this article thought provoking.
What do you think? Would a little more water improve your health?
