The body manifests dehydration in the form of pain
The Roll of Histamine in Pain
Histamine is a brain chemical, a neurotransmitter that is in charge of the water regulation (water intake) and the drought management programs of the body. It has been proven that it is less active when the body is fully hydrated, and becomes increasingly active when the body becomes dehydrated.
Drug companies manufacture a class of chemicals that are strong antihistamines. It is the action of Histamine the drug industry is determined to block when there is pain. Most strong pain medications are antihistamines, so why is why histamine is the target when pain medications are used?
When it manifests pain, in fact, it is indicating dehydration!
The human body manifests dehydration by producing pain, and pain is a sign of water shortage in the body. Water shortage is actually the background to most of the health problems we have to deal with today
The worst thing you can do for your body when you are in pain is making use of a Anti-Histamines. Your body is trying to tell you something, Well, no, this is not correct. What it is actually doing is it’s actually screaming at you….DRINK WATER!
Understanding dehydration will empower you to become much healthier and live longer.
When dehydration has become symptom-producing, the reversal of its complications take time and understanding
Attention! It is easy to understand what water does in your body, but bear in mind there is more to it than just simply drinking water. You must learn to re-hydrate your body gradually and carefully. You need to recognize your own particular early indicators of thirst. Not everyone is the same. You must learn what can happen to your own body when it becomes dehydrated. Not every body registers drought in the same way. Depending on where the drought has settled, the initial indicators are different in different people. Here is a few guidelines to follow.
Water for Health, for Healing, for Life
Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body.
- Your muscles that move your body are 75% water;
- Your blood that transport nutrients is 82% water;
- Your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water;
- Your brain that is the control centre of your body is 76% water;
- Even your bones are 25% water.
Dr. Batmanghelidj’s pioneering work shows that Unintentional Chronic Dehydration (UCD) contributes to and even produces pain and many degenerative diseases that can be prevented and treated by increasing water intake on a regular basis.
If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, make drinking enough natural & Structured water a habit in your life. It won’t take long for you to feel the benefit. It is a free investment for your long-term health!
DRINKING TIPS FOR HEALTHY HYDRATION:
Start your morning’s right: Morning is when you are most full of toxin and dehydrated. Reach for a big glass of water first thing in the morning – even before coffee. This water in the morning really gets the blood flowing.
- Drink a glass of water when you get up and another when you go to bed.
- Take regular water break breaks.
- Avoid relying on sodas to provide your fluid need.
- Drink water before and after food; ideally drink a glass of water half an hour before you eat your meal and half an hour after the meal. You can drink water with meals, and drink water anytime your body feels like it.
*It is very important you balance your sodium intake with your water consumption. Take 1/4 teaspoon of salt per quart of water – every 4-5 glasses of water. Be sure to get sea salt. The best is Celtic sea salt or Himalayan sea salt or Kalahari Salt,
Water & Digestion?
You should always drink water prior to eating, and after eating, to support the digestive process. The stomach depends on water to help digest food, and lack of water makes it harder for nutrients to be broken down and used as energy. The liver, which dictates where all nutrients go, also needs water to help convert stored fat into usable energy. If you are dehydrated, the kidneys turn to the liver for backup, diminishing the liver’s ability to metabolize stored fat. The resulting reduced blood volume will interfere with your body’s ability to remove toxins and supply your cells with adequate nutrients.Keep a water bottle by your side at all the times. The point is not to wait until you’re thirsty to drink.
Water & Training
Keep water flowing before, during and after workout. Don’t forget to balance your water intake with sodium intake. Drink at least 1 liter of water for every 60 minutes of exercise. Drink more if it’s hot. During exercise, such as playing sport on a hot summer day, you can lose up to 2 liters per hour of fluid per hour. Water and a balance salt is your best bet to keep healthy and hydrated. During exercise, it is recommended to replenish fluid at least every 20 minutes
