Time passes so fast that before you noticed it, you have already reached the senior years manifested by the experience of many health issues. Some of these are hypertension, coronary artery disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, cataract, glaucoma, enlarged prostate gland in men, menopausal symptoms in women, chronic kidney disease, cancer, and many others. It is the pain and discomfort created by these medical issues that makes you feel very much aged. It is definite that chronological age can never be reversed but the feeling of aging can be reversed through the resolution of the pains and agony of diseases and making your life more comfortable and enjoyable.
Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, in his book entitled “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water”, emphasized that most of the pains you experience is secondary to a body state termed as “Unintentional Chronic Dehydration” (UCD). He explained that when a person reaches the age of 40 years, his sensation of thirst wanes and is substituted by a sensation of hunger. Thus, a person becomes hungrier than thirstier after age 40 years. Due to this change in sensation, he tends to eat more and drinks less causing the body to receive less water than it requires. In time, he gradually becomes more dehydrated causing a disastrous state of the degeneration of tissues and organs. Degeneration speeds up the aging process. A good example is seen on withered plants, an indication of a dehydrated state.
Dr. Batmanghelidj declared that much of the problem of bad health today is founded on the misconception that any fluid containing water does the job to quench thirst. People today prefer drinking several commercial beverages such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, and alcoholic beverages. These beverages cannot perform the vital roles of water in the body. These vital functions include hydrating the cells properly and efficiently, assisting in weight loss, transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, eliminating acidic metabolic wastes and toxins out of the body, and regulating body temperature. When one or more of these functions are affected, the affected organ dysfunctions resulting to a disease.
When the body is deprived of much water, it releases histamine, the chemical in charge of water distribution or rationing. Rationing only happens when there is a shortage or crisis of a commodity. When histamine stimulates a nerve ending, it causes pain. Pain is the warning signal that the area is suffering from localized dehydration. It elicits pain because it is the sensation that one won’t ignore or neglect. The human body does not have a bulb that lights to signal dehydration nor does it have a bell that can sound as an alarm. God created pain as the best warning signal because pain is a sensation so difficult to ignore. Thus, water is the best pain reliever. Take 500 ml of purified water supplemented with 20 drops of IONIQUE Mineral Drops every 4 hours when in pain. When pain subsides for 48 hours, maintain hydration at minimum volume of 50 ml per kilogram body weight per day.
After computing your total daily water requirement, drink it as follows:
- Drink 1/4 of the total volume upon waking up in the morning and at bedtime.
- Drink 1/8 of the total volume 30 minutes before lunch and supper.
- Drink 1/8 of the total volume 2½ hours after breakfast and lunch.
- Add 250 ml of water every 30 minutes of strenuous activity.
- Drink whenever thirsty.
I always recommend that you drink purified drinking water sourced from an accredited drinking water refilling station. Today, pollution happens everywhere including water. The major contaminants in water are sediments such as soil, rust, dusts, sand, particulate matters; chemicals such as chlorine, personal health products, household chemicals, agricultural chemicals; microorganisms such as E. coli, coliform bacteria, salmonella, hepatitis A, shigella, E. histolytica; and heavy metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium. These contaminants must be eliminated from the drinking water to avoid their bad health effects.
When water gets purified thoroughly, even the health-giving minerals are eliminated. This makes water dead and acidic. Thus, it is very important to restore the lost minerals. I always recommend using the world’s most potent, 100 percent natural, food-grade sourced, ionic, health-giving mineral supplement. This is IONIQUE Mineral Drops manufactured by Mineral Resources International (MRI) based in Ogden, Utah, USA. Mix IONIQUE Mineral Drops into the volume of water that you drink 30 minutes before each meal and at bedtime.
With proper hydration and adequate mineral supplementation, tissues and organs will get rehydrated better and will ease or erase the pains you suffer from. I mentioned earlier that water is the best analgesic. The elimination of pain makes you more functional and active. This will restore more “life” unto you. With more energy and vitality, you will enjoy the activities you were so fond of doing when you were much younger. This feeling of well-being will delete your thoughts of aging, thus, reversing aging.
Let water and minerals-the magnificent, life-sustaining creations of God-be the answer to your fervent prayers for health and healing!
