The Five Rules to Drinking Water

About 60% of the adult human body is water (although I know some people who are probably 60% Mountain Dew). Our bodies use this water for a variety of purposes, and one of the most important of these is to help control the passage and utilization of nutrients and removal of toxins. Can you imagine what would happen to our bodies if the supply lines were suddenly stopped? Having sufficient water in our system is so important that we become thirsty when we have lost only 2 to 3% of our body’s water content.
It would probably be redundant to spend a long time discussing the importance of water. We have all been taught all our lives how important it is to drink plenty of water–8 glasses per day, how many times have we heard that? Do you really drink more than 64 ounces of water per day? What if I told you that it is one of the two most important things you can do to insure long-term health? (Of course, your first question would be, what’s the other one, and the answer is “Chew Your Foods Thoroughly.”)
The real subject of this article is to provide you with the five rules to drinking water. These will be self-explanatory:
RULE 1–Water means water. Other drinks do not count toward your water consumption. In fact, the following drinks should actually incur a water penalty because you will require more water to flush out the negative effects of these liquids: sodas, coffee, tea, sugary drinks, alcohol. Even though some of these other drinks may have some health benefits, they introduce acidic residue into the system that must be diluted.
RULE 2–Drink your water at any time other than with meals–when having a meal, the most important thing is good digestion, and that requires concentrated digestive fluids that should not be diluted. From the beginning of the meal to about 60 minutes after the meal, consumption of water should be limited. Chew foods more thoroughly rather than washing them down with water.
RULE 3–Use the best quality of water possible–Impurities in the water must be dealt with by our bodies, so use a high quality source of water, preferably a source that you control, or know what quality control measures are used in production. Debates are constantly raging over the different methods of water purification that are used, I actually like to alternate between distilled and reverse osmosis processing because I believe that both methods offer some advantages and disadvantages. And we strongly advise against regular use of individual bottles of water–they contain many impurities, and the amount of waste packaging is enormous.
RULE 4–Quantity trumps quality–As important as it is to find and use high quality water sources, do not starve yourself from water because you don’t have access to YOUR water. Body functions have to continue, and our bodies are good at dealing with that stuff from the water fountain or tap if that happens to be the only water available. So drink the available water, then figure out how to have a supply of YOUR water more readily available for the future.
RULE 5–Use naturally alkaline water–Our bodies tend to be too acidic, a result of stress, and over use of animal based and processed food products that leave an acidic residue in the body. My distilled water is naturally alkalized. They also play harmonic music 24 hrs a day in the room with the water storage container. When I drink this water, I know that I am drinking something that had thought and care put into it, the distillery is the same unit used in United States Embassies around the world.
To summarize, if the product we use to replace our body’s most abundant substance is carefully chosen to supply the best quality possible, if we consume enough quantity for our body to do its supply, cleansing, maintenance, and healing work, and we use a naturally alkaline water to help balance our body’s pH, then how much less work do you think will be required on other fronts to keep us healthy, or to restore health? The answer should be obvious, so I am drinking a toast right now to your health with my amazingly high quality water, and feeling great doing it. May your health always be your greatest wealth.
