Paul Bragg, who many consider the father of health via nutrition was a big proponent of water. If you are not familiar with the name how about Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, it was his research on how apple cider vinegar can play a positive role in our health. He also wanted people to be aware of how drinking water benefits the body unlike anything else we consume.
We wanted to post some excepts from his book “Water The Shocking Truth” He felt that drinking purified water that is free from harmful chemicals, toxins and inorganic minerals was critical to one’s health. He advocated everybody drink 8 glasses per day for body maintenance and health. Let’s read what his thoughts of how water benefits us.
Next to oxygen, water is the most vitally important substance in the body. The adult body is roughly 70% water and excretes water daily through the urine, defecation, perspiration and breathing. The internal temperature of the body is controlled with water.
The average body is 98.6 degrees, if it rises above this normal temperature we become feverish. If it falls below, we are physically under par. Water makes up 83% of the blood in the body and nearly 98% of intestinal, gastric, salivary and pancreatic juices.
Most older people become dehydrated and literally dry up due to insufficient water intake. Their skin and hands look parched, withered, dry and old. Look at the wrinkles on their foreheads and around their eyes. A curtain of dry flesh hangs over their eyes.
Other unhealthy results and danger signs of dehydration are constipation, which affects millions, and also burning, irritating urination. Remember, at least 8 large glasses of high quality purified water daily works miracles!
Another side of water imbalance is due to excessive use of inorganic sodium chloride (salt) and salty foods, which leads to waterlogged humans. You often see young children 7 to 10 years and older who are so waterlogged that they have grotesque, bloated and prematurely old looking bodies. Just compare them to the adults with their bloated and puffed-up faces, arms, bellies, legs, ankles and feet. Don’t let this happen to you.
The amount of water a body needs depends on temperature, climate, one’s activities and health – 8 glasses is average. When you drink a glass of water it goes straight to your stomach. Part of the water is absorbed directly into your bloodstream through the walls of your stomach and some of the remainder goes to your intestines to keep the food you eat in a liquid state while it is being absorbed; this water is later absorbed directly into the blood.
Drinking the right kind of water is one of your best natural protections against all kinds of virus infections such as influenza, pneumonia, whooping cough, measles and other infectious diseases. Doctors advise bed-rest and plenty of water for the flu. When the body’s tissues and cells are kept well-supplied with ample water, they can fight viral attacks more efficiently. If the body’s cells are water-starved, they become shriveled-up, parched and dry, making it easy for viruses and diseases to attack.
Always bear in mind the important functions of the right kind of water in your body. Water is a vital component of all body fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and glandular secretions. Water holds all nutritive factors in solution and acts as a transportation medium to the various parts of the body for these substances. The mucous membranes need plenty of water to keep them soft and free from friction on their delicate surfaces.
Liquid is necessary for the proper digestion of food! The stomach acts as a powerful churn to break down food into tiny particles. Remember to chew your food thoroughly to help your stomach, for it has no teeth!
One of the most important functions of water is to flush the toxins and salt from the body. Unfortunately, people the world over now consume large amounts of salt. But, from centuries ago to the present day, there are still many countries that have never known what salt is and whose people are still healthy and happy.
People who ingest a sufficient amount of the right kinds of liquids (purified water, fresh organic fruits and vegetables and their juices) have better health and body functioning and circulation overall, which are most important to Super Health and Long Life.
You have 15 billion powerful brain cells which are 75% water. We strongly believe the right kind of water in sufficient amounts helps improve your mind and brain power and makes you think better and more accurately!
We also think that the excessively nervous and/or mentally upset person is so obsessed with his own worries and “hang-ups” that he just forgets to drink sufficient pure water. Instead, he dopes himself with alcohol, tea, coffee, diet cola and soft drinks which only complicate his nervous condition by introducing burning, toxic acid into his stomach with no food or pure water to dilute it.
So on top of his nervousness and depression, he suffers from heartburn, sour acid stomach, gas, bloating, enervation and low energy. In place of sufficient pure water, he again dopes up on stimulants, coffee, soft drinks, cigarettes, aspirin, antacids, etc. Remember that the nerves need the correct amount of water to function properly and smoothly.
