Importance of Water
With two thirds of the earth’s surface covered by water and the human body consisting of 72.8% of it, it is evidently clear that water is one of the prime elements responsible for life on earth. Water circulates through the land just as it does through the human body, transporting, dissolving, replenishing nutrients and organic matter, while carrying away waste material. Further in the body, it regulates the activities of fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and glandular secretions.
Without food, human beings can survive several weeks. But without water, we will die of dehydration within several days. An average adult body of 60 kg contains 42 litres of water and with just a small loss of 2.7 liters he or she can suffer from dehydration, displaying symptoms of irritability, fatigue, nervousness, dizziness, weakness, headaches and consequently reach a state of pathology.
A loss of 10% water from our bodies will put our lives in danger. A loss of 20% water will result in permanent death. Dr F. Batmanghelidj, in his book “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water”, gives a wonderful essay on water and its vital role in the health of a water ‘starved’ society. He writes: “Since the ‘water’ we drink provides for cell function and its volume requirements, the decrease in our daily water intake affects the efficiency of cell activity…as a result chronic dehydration causes symptoms that equal disease…”.
Renowned gastroenterologist Dr Hiromi Shinya echoed his support: “Most of us don’t drink enough water. Our cells are 80% water, and I believe almost any physical problem can be improved by drinking good water.”
Good Quality Water
Advances in science and technology has facilitated the production of clean tap water worldwide. But is tap water good for our health? We know that fishes do not survive more than a few hours if we put the into a tank filled with tap water. Many research studies have been done to determine the properties of water that promote longevity and health. as a result of these studies, we can now control the properties of water to enhance our health. Likewise, studies on enhancing the effectiveness of water for cleaning and other functions also bear good results. The best of all – we can now manipulate these water properties ourselves in our own homes using the Enagic technologies!
