“Then He touched their eyes and said, ‘Because of your faith, it will happen.” – Matthew 9:29

The month of June is a halfway mark of the year.

The five months that have passed may seem like a day in front of the computer, but the details of every minute are fought with patience, sacrifice, concern, and love for oneself, for the family, and for the future of this world. Everyone had their little to big challenges that were fought off worthwhile, and it is a victory to be proud of.

When we talk about priorities, do you also sacrifice the good things for the bigger picture? Especially when you are feeling sick and wanting to feel better again in no time?

In the VER1REV Enterprises Corporation (VEC), the Medical Director, Dr. Renato U. Paragas, prescribes only water and minerals as part of his “Tubig at mga Mineral: Sagot sa Kalusugan” concept. Sure, you may think that you can take it, even with a scheduled proper hydration in a day. But what if your favorite foods and beverages are banned temporarily or permanently because of the severity of your disease or for your disease not to reach its chronic state? Would you feel that it is unfair? Probably, you would, for the prescription is ridding you of your favorites. But would you still feel the same if it is not just eliminating your disease and its underlying cause, but also for an opportunity of a healthy life?

VEC has been doing its mission for 11 long years. Dr. Paragas and the wonderful people with him share the greatness that water and minerals contribute to the human body to help the Filipinos seeking for a more natural, cost-friendly, more effective, and safer approach to their diseases and health. Specifically speaking, what do Waterdok and his team really do?

When you consult Dr. Paragas, he evaluates you professionally, with sincerity and respect. He believes that every disease is the result of the lack of essential nutrients specifically water and minerals, the most ignored and most neglected nutrients, and the excess toxins in the body. The reason why water and minerals are the main items in his prescription is because he wants to rehydrate your cells – the basic units of life that work for you 24/7 – with the functions of water – Works to keep body cells toned, Assists in weight loss, Transports nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, Eliminates acidic metabolic wastes and toxins out of the body, and Regulates body temperature – and the functions of minerals – Maintain electrical nerve impulses, Improve muscle actions, Neutralize stress, Extracts toxins out of cells, Regulate water contents of the body, Activate enzymatic functions, Load out to strengthen the immune system, and  Sustain cell life. He and his team will give you your daily water requirement computed at 50 ml/kg/day. They will advise you to drink water only. You should never drink other beverages such as coffee, milk, chocolate drinks, tea, soft drinks, juice, energy drinks, and alcoholic beverages. You should also refrain from eating junk foods, processed foods, instant foods, and instant seasonings. The final part is the diet you that you should adapt to.  General guidelines as to what foods you should eat or avoid are given.

So, why do they prohibit a lot of foods and beverages? Are eating fresh, healthy foods and drinking purified water only not best for maintaining excellent health and well-being?

Remember, Buddha once said, “Every human being is the author of his own health and disease.” There is no good in ingesting synthetic beverages because it will only dehydrate you more. This will lead to poor defense mechanisms resulting to weak immune system. If you continue drinking most commercial beverages while also eating junk and processed foods, toxins will accumulate and trigger the disease. Let’s say you may be drinking water while drinking other beverages. The question is: is the water that you drink sufficient to “cleanse” the toxins from other beverages? Did you know that one (1) cup of coffee eliminates three (3) cups of water, while 32 glasses of high alkaline water is required to neutralize the acidity of one (1) glass of soft drink?  Even so, how about the toxins that were already absorbed by your organs? Will the water be sufficient to undo the damage? No. The human body also needs to be hydrated with water regularly to function properly. Imagine if you drink other beverages every day plus you eat toxic foods and drink insufficient water. The damage to your health will be severe, and it will surely end up to more diseases.  It will be a cycle of toxification to your body that will be at your great disadvantage in the end. This is the reason why Dr. Paragas and his team prohibits the drinking of other beverages and eating of processed and instant foods. In this way, they are letting your body undergo detoxification and later, the healing through water, minerals, and healthy foods.

Healing may take time, but it starts with a dedicated mindset towards a healthy life.  This is the meaning of sacrificing for the bigger picture, even if it is a goodbye to your favorite foods and beverages.  Most importantly, this is a farewell to your diseases and a forever hello to fully appreciating life, loving yourself, and achieving your dreams while serving God.

May you always choose the true meaning of health!
