Without pure water and lots of it, we cannot become pH balanced!
Dehydration could be a major underlying reason for acidity. When you are dehydrated and not feeling well (sick and tired), there really isn’t anything that will improve your condition until you re-hydrate..
Most of us already know that our body is approximately 70% water, but we may not have made the leap that dehydration stems from us needing to replace the water we lose each day, through urination and perspiration, with clean pure water. Our urine should be clear and without odor. The color (outside of vitamin discharge that happens when you don’t absorb the vitamins) determines the level of hydration, clear you are hydrated, after that you are in some state of dehydration, which is also why we need to maintain 70% water as a standard for ourselves.
Blood is or should be about 96% water. Our blood is our river of life, and our blood, just like a river, cannot flow throughout our body properly when the water is low (dehydrated), or when our water is not as clean as it needs to be for good health.
Your entire body depends on pure water, and that’s a challenge today. You see our body was designed to receive nutrition both from water and food. Withholding, or not ingesting enough water is detrimental, but so is ingesting degraded water. Pure water with nutrition (minerals) will be a neutral pH.
Bottled water is becoming less and less of an option for many reasons. Water issues (even with city water): chemicals, pesticides, bacteria, nitrates, chlorine, pharmaceuticals, and the list goes on.
Below we’ll explain how to tell if you are dehydrated, but bottom line it’s a challenge to be fully hydrated without preparing at least some of our own beverages, especially because most of the mainstream beverage and food choices are not rehydrating, not from pure water and whole food sources, and in fact, beverages like soda and coffee are dehydrating. Fresh food carries water (more…)
