Unfortunately, too many of us decide to take better care of ourselves only after our state of health becomes compromised. That is better than not at all. The hardest part is just getting started. Most people do best by beginning with small steps. However, some people dive in full force headfirst. You know yourself best. If you have started a new health regiment, and quit repeatedly by over doing it in the beginning, start slowly this time, one-step at a time.
Fluid intake is very important to keep cells functioning properly. It is critical for healing. Insufficient fluid intake is like trying to wash dishes without any water! Fluids help keep cell organelles actively functioning doing their jobs efficiently and effectively.
- Drink plenty of and only pure fluids. The amount of fluids needed depends on how fast the body is expending fluids. Spread the quantity out throughout the day. Certain conditions affect fluid expenditure. The higher the temperature, the drier the air, the greater the amount of exercise intensity, exertion and duration, the more rapidly the body uses fluids within the body. Increase fluid intake as these conditions increase.
- Filtered water is good. I recommend reverse osmosis or carbon filters. An inexpensive way to improve water quality is to boil water and store it in the refrigerator in a glass container.
- For added nutrients, fast absorption and an abundance of enzymes for quick healing, drink freshly juiced fruits and vegetables using a quality juicer. Wheatgrass juice helps supply the body with needed oxygen due to oxygen-rich chlorophyll. When you supply cells with an abundance of oxygen, optimal health is more likely.
- Herbal tea supplies minerals that can contribute to healing. Brew tea in the sun by placing herbs in a glass jar and sitting the jar in the sun. This keeps the temperature low enough to preserve enzymes. When you boil water and add tea, you extract more tea constituents, but you destroy the enzymes. The temperature enzymes are destroyed varies per food item. The easiest thing to do is keep temperatures at 105° or lower to preserve enzymes. Enzymes are very powerful. Enzymes speed the rate of chemical reactions. In fact, some enzymes can cause a chemical reaction that would normally take one year to take place without enzymes to take just over 3 seconds with enzymes! That is powerful healing potential.
In conclusion, start healing naturally by increasing your fluid intake with plenty of pure water, enzyme-rich freshly juiced fresh fruits and vegetables, wheatgrass juice and herbal teas. Proper fluid intake can make a tremendous difference in how you feel and do so quickly. Start now.
