Water



Water is a life-sustaining fluid, essential to our health.

  • Our bodies are made up of two-thirds water.

  • All the body's major systems require water - skin, detoxification, digestion etc.

  • As a rule of thumb, we need to drink eight glasses of water per day, but this increases with such factors as exercise and heat.


Signs of dehydration:

  • headaches.

  • fatigue.

  • back pain.

  • brain fog.

  • depression.

  • constipation

  • dizziness and lightheadedness.

  • muscle cramps.


Begin your day with warm water and the juice of half a lemon. This helps prevent constipation, rehydrates the body and flushes the digestive system.


What else counts as water?

  • organic, green vegetable juices (spinach, kale, celery).

  • coconut water.

  • herbal teas.

  • fruits (watermelon, oranges, grapefruit, melon).


Make sure your water is clean:

  • Do we really know what is in our tap water?

  • Beware of BPA's and other harmful chemical substances, often found in plastic bottles.

  • Invest in your own home-filter system.


Gradually increase your water intake each day

  • As you increase your water intake, decrease diuretics such as coffee, alcohol, fizzy drinks, and sugar-filled juices.
