A Well Hydrated Body Enhances Health and Well Being

I have sad news to report. Many people who are dehydrated do not know it. What is the big deal if you are dehydrated? Disease. Fatigue. Depression. Weight gain. Premature aging. Each problem taken by itself is a big deal.

How Do You Know if You are Dehydrated?

Hydration in the human body can be tested by pinching the skin on the back of your hand. If it springs back to its original shape, chances are good that the cells in your body have enough water.

If on the other hand a small ridge appears for a few seconds, you lack sufficient fluid in your body. When the skin is dehydrated wrinkles multiply, skin becomes scaly and muscles become flabby.

Long Path versus Short Path hydration

Good hydration improves the uptake of water throughout the body by making conditions ripe for long path hydration. People who are dehydrated are victims of short path hydration. What is short path hydration?

Short path hydration means that the fluids that enter your body follow a path from the mouth to the stomach to the small intestines into the circulation, then the kidneys, the bladder and out of the body. With short path hydration, virtually all of the organs in the body are bypassed. Is there any surprise that dehydration is the number one trigger of daytime

With long path hydration water flows into the organs, tissues and cells of the body. Water is distributed where it is needed before being sent to the kidneys. Stress on the kidneys is relieved, leaving critical organs in the body to do their work without stress or aggravation. The result is a burst of new energy and stamina.

If short path hydration is the method used by your body to hydrate the cells, drinking more water does not necessarily do the trick of hydrating your body. The water is not being distributed where it is needed the most. The good news is that homeopathic remedies for dehydration are able to help transform the delicate process of hydrating the body from short path hydration to long path hydration.

Good Hydration Helps Nourish Cells and Release Toxins

There are two benefits to having good penetration of water throughout your body. First, cells are supplied with the nutrients that are necessary to sustain life. Second, dangerous toxins are cleansed from the cells.

When cells do not have sufficient fluid, the toxins literally become glued to the cell walls. This dry cement like waste material can obviously not be excreted through the cell walls. When the buildup of toxins becomes critical the cell is no longer able to sustain life and dies.

You might think the answer to nourishing your cells with nutrients and eliminating toxins from your body is obvious. The seemingly obvious answer is to drink more water when you are thirsty. The problem with this simple minded solution is that the thirst reflex in many people is not working properly. The signal to drink water is simply not triggered when your body desperately needs it.

When the body's sophisticated thirst mechanism is broken, you do not drink water when you are thirsty because you are unaware you are thirsty to begin with. You drink less and less water. Your body gradually becomes very dehydrated. Millions and millions of cells become clogged with toxins. This is the reason why so many people feel fatigued before the day even begins.

What can you do for yourself if your body's thirst reflex is not working properly? Natural, homeopathic remedies for dehydration exist that nourish the thirst reflex so that it functions properly. When the homeopathic remedy is given time to take effect, sufficient water is absorbed into each and every cell of the body.

When the body is adequately hydrated there is an efficient transport mechanism for the transfer of nutrients to each cell regardless of where the cell is located in your body. Waste and toxins are removed efficiently and effortlessly. Detoxification takes place gently, with little stress on the delicate systems of the body.

Make the choice today of taking better care of yourself. Give your body the water it needs to nourish your cells and remove toxins. Rest assured each cell in your body will be very, very appreciative.
