There is a list of diseases associated with dehydration, and electrolytic mineral depletion. Nice to use big or confusing words isn’t it? Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity are just a few. The book “ The Body’s Many Cries for Water.” maps out all the benefits of drinking more water and all the problems created by not drinking water. Water cannot be replaced with soda, coffee, tea, beer, or soft drinks. In reality many of these liquids stress the adrenal glands and cause us to urinate more often. This doesn’t help, because many of us have been brainwashed into not liking water. Its not as sexy in the commercials on television.
Dehydration starts with just a small drop in the percentage of water inside us. It is like a sponge drying out. Demineralization occurs from sweating, eating carbohydrates, drinking too much soda or taking too many medications. The resulting drop in PH or the rise in the acid side of our internal environment is usually a direct result of our own actions. Viruses, bacteria, in fact all diseases process need an acidic, anaerobic or oxygen deprived environment to thrive.
