Water Your Brain 1

Last week, I posted an article titled “Water and Brain Function” written by Merlin Hearn on my website. I was surprised with the number of people commenting and reading. I decided to post a new article on Water and Brain. In YouTube, I found 90 minutes video titled “Your Brain on Water” by Dr. Corinne Allen. I watched a few times and I found it very useful. I would like to share with you what I have noted key points in this video.

The Brain is 80% water. Optimal brain function depends on water and lots of it. Water is what keeps the brain signals going. When the quality of water is compromised the signals are short circuited. Water supports DNA and is the largest single source of energy. The brain has no way to store water and dehydration comes if all the water lost in a day is not replaced and this deficiency is accumulated. Brain cells need 2x more energy than other cells in the body. Water supplies energy. Nerve transmission consumes one-half of all the brain’s energy (nearly 10% of the whole body’s energy). When hydrated, you have more energy. When the brain is functioning on a full reserve of water, it will function at full capacity and you’ll think better and faster. Creativity is boosted. http://www.theenergyhealinginstitute.com/water-and-your-brain.html

Why Water is so important;

Water is the most important ingredient in the health of your brain.

Brain is 80% water. Body is 75% water. Blood is 90% water.

It is the one secret that is being missed.

Water is essential to superior mental health and wellness.

Water is the missing link in health brain functioning

More than just a solvent to carry waste

Essence of life

water-essence-of-life

Delivers Electromagnetic current to fuel our cells

Resonance field through which cells communicate

Works in transfer of DNA

Conduit of the transmission of vibrational information

Water transports, stabilizes, signals, lubricates, and structures

Produces Hydroelectric energy, especially in brain

Makes Protein & Enzymes function efficiently

water-protein-enzymes-function

Transports Nutrients

Transports Hormones and other elements

Keeps tissues from drying out

Slows down cell death

Lubricates and Cushions

Water flushes out toxins and poisons

Helps produce digestive enzymes

Helps keep away aches and pains

How does water get lost in the body? How water is lost;

We breathe and it humidifies as it leaves the body

We sweat to cool the body

We urinate or have bowel movement to rid the body of waste products

In a normal day, a person has to drink a significant amount of water to replace this routine loss

What Causes of Dehydration?

Lack of replacing water

Affects are accumulative

The body uses 2.5 liters of water a day under perfect conditions

That is 9 glasses of water that need to be replenished

need-more-water-if-you-have-these-factors
You need more water if you have these factors;

*Strenuous activities

*Stress

*Little to no fruits and vegetables in diet

*Acid water consumption (bottled waters)

*Digestion fluids not replaced

When dehydration occurs;

Dehydration occurs when the amount of water leaving the body is greater than the amount being taken in.

The body is very dynamic and always changing. This is especially true with water levels in the body.

aging-causes-decreased-thirst-sensation

Aging causes decreased thirst sensation resulting in dehydration

Alcohol consumption causes dehydration

Burn Cause Dehydration (When the body is burned it is forced to use a lot of water to heal)

Caffeine causes dehydration

caffeine-causes-dehydration

Caffeine reduces melatonin needed for sleep

Decreases memory enzymes

Can cause DNA damage

Affects overall brain functioning

Cravings for caffeine are signal for needing water

10 ounces of coffee removes 12 ounces of water from the body

Diarrhea causes dehydration

diarrhea-causes-dehydration

Diets high in Processed fats, refined grains, chemicals, preservatives and sugar take more water to metabolize and flush out the toxins ingested.

Exercise causes dehydration. This includes mental and physical exercise. If you exercise regularly, you will need more than 2.5 liters a day (9 cups)

Fever causes dehydration

Edema means dehydration. When there is inflammation and edema the body pulls water from other parts to assist the area thus leading to dehydration.

edema-means-dehydration

High elevations cause lack of oxygen and use up a lot more water in the system

Infections cause dehydration. Infections are like contaminants or toxins in the body. They need to be flushed out and it takes more water to do so.

Chronic illness necessitates so much more water to flush the toxins that dehydration becomes the inevitable side effect

Morning sickness and nausea are a result of dehydration

morning-sickness-nausea-and-dehydration

Histamine is rising in morning sickness

The amount of hydration of the fetus will determine the future asset of the child’s growth and development

Overweight person should consume more water because it takes more water for the heavier person to complete the processes.

overweight-and-dehydration

Dehydration decreases metabolic rate

Moves fat deposits

Overweight person are confused for Hunger and thirst. Instead of drinking water, they choose to eat something

Sun exposure causes dehydration. The sun is burning up water during exposure and several hours after. During long exposures if carbonated, caffeinated, alcoholic, and sugar drinks are used the dehydration is far greater.

sun-exposure-causes-dehydration

Sweating causes dehydration

Stress causes dehydration. Stress causes the body hormones and neurotransmitters to work harder. It uses up more vital resources that need water to keep functioning.

Using too much salt, especially salty junk foods causes dehydration

salty-junk-foods-causes-dehydration

Vomiting causes dehydration

What are the dangers of dehydration?

Reducing water in the body as little as 5% can result in as much as 20-30% drop in your physical performance,

dangers-of-dehydration

10% reduction can make you sick

20% reduction can mean death

1-2 % reduction in the brain can mean problems concentrating and thinking.

The average person drinks 16.000 gallons of water in a lifetime

75% of citizens in developed countries chronically dehydrated

1/3 of Americans have such a weak thirst sensation that it is mistaken for hunger thus obesity

brain-dehydration

What is Brain Dehydration?

Brings on feelings of depression & Anxiety

Brain does not function properly

Uses up Amino acids that keep brain happy and working

The worse the dehydration, the worse the depression & anxiety

ATP, needed for cellular energy is greatly reduced no energy equals poor brain functioning

dehydration-and-mental-functioning

Dehydration and mental functioning

2% drop in water in the brain causes fuzzy memory, trouble with basic math, and problems with focus

Dehydration lowers psychomotor, processing speed, memory, concentration, and fatigue

Affects cognitive ability, impacts physical performance and motor skills

Brain issues related to dehydration

alzheimers-and-dehydration

Alzheimer’s and dehydration

Alzheimer’s tend toward lowered vasopressin levels which is responsible for water homeostasis

Alzheimer’s have increased dehydration

coma-delirium-and-dehydration

Coma & Delirium and Dehydration

Coma can lead to a state of severe dehydration

In advanced of terminal cases dehydration is an important factor

Hydration is a key factor in coma and delirium

Use micro-clustered, ionized, alkaline water to quickly and efficiently help hydrate the brain
