RAINY SEASON, SICKER SEASON
by Mary Jane O. Velasquez
“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)
Rainy season is officially here. 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 roof drainage pipe is clogged, if things that shouldn’t be wet are still outside when the rain pours, and if we reside in the lowest part of a 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 catch a cold, cough, or flu. This is why taking in vitamins such as vitamin C and vitamin E 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 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. We rarely feel thirsty and do not drink the sufficient amount of water that we should, leaving our entire internal systems dehydrated. Also, the rainy months makes us prone to getting sicker because of microorganisms that love to inhabit on wet surfaces, puddles, or bodies of water that can easily enter our human body as a result of weakened immune systems. For example, the cases of dengue spikes during rainy weather, and while most cities are prone to flooding, it also results with increased leptospirosis cases.
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. They are:
(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 in 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 they will accumulate more, becoming poisons 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 deficient of. Dr. Paragas also mentioned in 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- and trace minerals that our internal organs and systems need to work efficiently.
We should also remember that we are still facing a pandemic right now, therefore we should still give priority to one of the great blessings of God: our health; by drinking sufficient water using the formula of 50 ml/kg/day and 40 drops (10 drops four times a day) of IONIQUE ® Concentrated Mineral Drops.
Let us welcome His showers of blessing during this shower season with well-being.
