“I will make them and the places surrounding My hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.” (Ezekiel 34:26)
Our country, the Philippines, is known for its two seasons: the dry season and the rainy season; because of its location near the equator. According to PAGASA, the hot season can be felt from December to May, and the rainy season happens from June to November. Last June 13, PAGASA has released an official statement that our country is now in its rainy season.
The rainy season can make us feel a lot of emotions. In terms of external aspect, it gives us awareness of the environment and our households. Rainy seasons make us anxious about our house; if there is a hole on the roof or the ceiling, if the drainage pipe is clogged on the roof, if things that shouldn’t be wet are still outside when the rain pours, and if we are in the lowest part of an elevated land. Rainy seasons can make us feel anxious when it develops as a tropical storm, where floods and landslides happen. In terms of our physical aspect, it makes us hurdle for proper materials to bring outside such as the umbrella, raincoats and boots. In our emotional aspect, it makes us remember a lot of memories: a feeling of melancholy.
In terms of our health, the rainy seasons also gives us the idea that we might get sick. Most of us are caught with a cold, cough, or flu. This is why taking in vitamins such as the ascorbic acid are advised by our parents and doctors.
Indeed, the rainy season can make us feel aware of the places and events that are only given more emphasis in this five-month period. But with all of the things that we remember and act upon, we are forgetting one of the most important routines that we should do in our everyday lives: drinking plenty of water.
According to The Economic Times, during rainy season, humidity takes away a huge percentage of water from our body by sweating. Usually, we feel this as “cold sweats”, or in some cases, we may not feel this as the cold weather keeps our pores closed. But this explains why we rarely feel thirsty and do not drink the sufficient amount of water that we should, leaving our entire internal systems dehydrated.
Renato U. Paragas, M.D., the author of The #1 Reason Why You’re Sick, The #1 Reason Why You’re Diabetic, and The #1 Reason Why You’re Hypertensive, emphasizes the importance of “water” in our body by placing a meaning on each letter of the word. It is:
(1) Works to keep body cells toned;
(2) Assists in weight loss;
(3) Transports nutrients and oxygen throughout the body;
(4) Eliminates acidic metabolic wastes and toxins out of the body; and
(5) Regulates body temperature
Dr. Paragas further explained from his article entitled “COVID-19: A High Price To Pay For Disobedience” that water is the best cleansing agent. He stressed that, “When a person does not drink sufficient amount of water, the metabolic wastes and toxins in the body are not excreted completely, and it will accumulate more, becoming a poison in our body.”
Since we are fully knowledgeable about the intake of vitamins, we should also be reminded that we lack minerals, too. Water and minerals are two of the most ignored essential nutrients that our body is dehydrated from. Dr. Paragas also mentioned from the same article that, “The minerals balance the fluids inside and out of the cells, by helping to maintain the physiologic movement of water in the body. This function provides adequate amount of nutrients to the cells, and also assists in cleansing. Like water, they help to extract toxins out of the cells. Minerals, especially magnesium, helps strengthen the immune system.” IONIQUE® Concentrated Mineral Drops is a 100% natural mineral supplement, with Magnesium having the highest concentration, and 71 more of macro or trace minerals that our internal organs and systems need to efficiently work.
We should also remember that we are still facing a pandemic right now, and whether it is true or not that the COVID-19 does not multiply or exist in a specific temperature, we should still give priority to one of the great blessings of God: our health; by drinking sufficient water with the formula of 50 ml/kg/day and 10 drops of IONIQUE® Concentrated Mineral Drops four (4) times a day.
Let us welcome His showers of blessing during this shower season with well-being.
