Next to air, water is our most important 'nutrient'. Keeping the body well hydrated is essential to our well-being.
Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water each day to maintain your internal balance.
Imbalance from even mild dehydration can cause stress hormones to increase since the body sees it as a life-threatening situation.
When stress hormones increase, it causes a cascade of changes to thyroid and other hormones, such as insulin.
Water can also help to detoxify the body. Pure filtered water or spring water, when available, is the best.
According to Dr. Randall Tent, Organically Bound Minerals can also help with maintaining proper hydration.
These can be found in supplements such as Plant Derived Colloidal Minerals and Hibiscus Tea.
Both help to reduce dehydration and dry mouth, as well as helping to prevent wrinkles and constipation.
