15 Jun Why It’s More than Likely You’re Chronically Dehydrated
Did you know more people in modern day society are dehydrated than hydrated? It is not uncommon to hear people say, ‘I hate water…I never drink it’. Can you believe it!? They’d rather drink coffee, tea, soft drink and juices than the one think that can actually quench their thirst..water.
Our bodies are made up of about 60% water and sadly it is one of the main things we starve it of. Dehyration has now reached epedemic proportions in the Western world with approx 75% of us functioning in a chronic state of dehydration. Alarmingly, in Australia and America this is not due to a shortage of water; but sadly down to a lack of awareness of how critical water is for our bodies; the quality of the water ; and the importance of drinking good quality water daily.
If you are unsure if you are dehydrated then take this simple test.
1/ Do I drink a minimum of 2 litres of water every day?
2/ Do I suffer from fatigue?
3/ Am I often feeling thirsty?
4/ Do I have a sluggish metabolism?
5/ Do I feel irritable, anxious or have memory fog?
6/ Do I suffer from kidney stones?
7/ Is the skin on my face or body dry or even scaly?
If you don’t drink two litres of water a day and you answered yes to any of these questions, then you probably suffer from dehydration and you could even be severely dehydrated.
So what can you do about it?
DRINK MORE WATER !
What’s even more alarming is how many of our household pets are dehydrated and sadly this is primarily the owners fault. Many pets are given an inadequate supply of water and even worse and inadequate supply of fresh, clean water. Today our water supplies are polluted and to make them palatable they are loaded with chemicals, fluoride and deodorizes. This all changes the natural structure of water and though it is considered ‘safe’ to drink, the chemicals and process of making it ‘safe’ is actually poisoning us and our pets at the same time.
One of the best ways to ensure you and your pet cat or dog is hydrated is by only using good quality, pure spring water or filtered tap water. Another way of hydrating your pet is by giving them the all natural, vitamin and mineral supplement called PETVIM.
