Fereydoon Batmanghelidj was a licensed naturopath who is best known for his book, Your Body's Many Cries for Water. According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, symptoms like fatigue, anxiety or depression indicate dehydration.
Batmanghelidj asserts that chronic dehydration is the root cause of most pain and many ailments. Batmanghelidj’s ideas have been criticized on several grounds, including a lack of any documented peer-reviewed research and exaggerated claims about the number of patients treated successfully.
Notwithstanding water is critical to every single function in the body and no other fluid replaces the need for water! Getting enough water every day is important for your health (Center for Disease Control).
Staying hydrated is critical to maintaining good health. Water plays a role in metabolism, cellular function, regulating our body temperature, aiding in digestion, delivering oxygen to our body, lubricates joints, flushes out nasty toxins, helps create hormones and neurotransmitters and transports nutrients to fuel our body.
Here are the Top Ten Reasons Why Drinking Water Is So Good For You:
ONE: Fatigue. Water is the primary source of energy in the body and it generates electrical and magnetic energy in every cell of the body. Without water we simply don’t have the energy to power through the day.
TWO: Infection. Water improves the efficiency of the immune system and helps to combat infections and mutant cells (such as cancer cells). When the body is dehydrated, the body becomes much more acidic, an environment that is conducive to all types of infections.
THREE: Heart disease and stroke. On average, our blood is over 80 percent water. Daily water intake is essential for circulation and helps prevent clogging of arteries in the heart and brain.
FOUR: Depression. Water naturally helps the body replenish its supply of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Dehydration can also decrease the level of energy generation in the brain.
FOUR: Sleep disorders. Water is needed for the production of all hormones made by the brain, including melatonin, a critical factor in sleep regulation. Water also helps to restore normal sleep rhythms.
FIVE: Addictions. Water can help to help restore balance in the body, provide better nutrient utilization and help to eliminate addictions to alcohol, caffeine, and some drugs.
SIX: Attention Deficit. Water provides more energy to the brain to help provide greater focus, attention, and memory needed for the learning process. Improving concentration and cognition. Helping to balance your mood and emotions. Maintaining memory function.
SEVEN: Dry mouth. Dry mouth is often mistaken for excessive thirst. Common causes of dry mouth include smoking tobacco or marijuana, stress, anxiety, or simply aging. However, dry mouth can be a side effect of several prescription drugs, allergy medicines, and dizziness or motion sickness medications.
EIGHT: Your period. Estrogen and progesterone levels can both affect fluid volume, and the blood loss from the menstruation cycle increases your thirst for water.
NINE: Diabetes. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can increase your risk of dehydration. When blood sugar levels are too high, your kidneys produce more urine to get rid of the excess glucose. This results in frequent urination, which leads to drinking more fluids, which compounds the problem.
TEN: Overeating. Water Can Help Control Calories. Dieters have been drinking lots of water as a weight loss strategy. Substituting water for higher calorie beverages can certainly help keep the fat off.
Drinking water daily is quite simply the easiest and most effective way to provide a solid foundation for optimal health, fitness and longevity.
