You would not even believe the true amount of dehydration that occurs in society. People go about their day with their morning coffee, their soft drinks at lunch, there milk and juice with dinner. Most people never drink A GLASS OF WATER in a day.
So to find that most people are dehydrated is actually quite obvious and easy to see how. It is my belief due to experience that MOST DAILY DISCOMFORT is brought on simply due to dehydration and nothing else. headaches, stomach problems, nausea, memory issues, the list of dehydration symptoms is endless and it is so commonly overlooked.
Though I do watch my diet, and avoid aspartame, fluoride and MSG like they are the plague, I do attribute most of my health to simple hydration. I haven't been sick in at least 7 years, havent had a headache in at least a decade and normally feel absolutely perfect everyday, aside from the occasional back pain from my poor posture. These facts were highlighted when I met my current girlfriend. Her tummy was always upset, she always seemed to be getting headaches and overall she just had terrible day to day health. The first thing I made her start doing was consume more pure water, ontop of a daily multivitamin and the changes in just her have been staggering.
People are so quick to run to a doctor when they dont "feel good", never bothering to just do the right thing and treat their body properly. You pour # into your gas tank everyday, and soon your car will run poorly, you give it high octane goodness and it purrs like a kitten.
Your body is no different, and it needs to be maintained if you want to enjoy the ride. Thats the bottom line.
Quick tip for finding out if your dehydrated: Check your urine, yellow means you are DEHYDRATED AND MUST DRINK A FULL GLASS OF WATER ASAP! Your urine should always be crystal clear.
For anyone in disbelief of my theory, test this yourself. Next time you don't feel good, or feel a headache coming on or whatever, take a leak, if your urine is yellow. Drink a full glass of water, and think about how your feeling 30 minutes later. I guarantee you're at least feeling somewhat better.
