Today, dehydration is actually a rising health concern…an estimated 75% of Americans have mild chronic dehydration!
Okay, so what, ‘mild chronic dehydration’ doesn’t sound like such a big deal, right?
Well, get this: Many of the chronic health conditions and so-called incurable diseases we see today are actually nothing but labels given to different stages of chronic dehydration.
This is because symptoms of dehydration are hard to pin point. There are too many of them and over time, these not so obvious symptoms gradually build upon each other until a serious disease is diagnosed.
Mild dehydration begins when the water level drops 2% below optimal level.
Symptoms include: low energy, headaches, bodily aches and pains, trouble concentrating, fuzzy short term memory, food cravings…
If you’re like us and the rest of the world, some of those symptoms might sound familiar to you..
Usually these symptoms of mild dehydration get ignored, you begin to grow a tolerance and your body adapts to this mild dehydrated state as the ‘new normal.’
As your body adapts to this dehydrated state, you lose the accuracy of your thirst reflex – you simply don’t feel thirsty so you don’t drink any water.
Water levels then continue to drop down to 5% below optimal levels…
You begin to experience more discomfort: extreme fatigue, muscle cramps, increased heart rate, and digestive issues like bloating, indigestion, heart burn and constipation.
Once this seemingly mild state of dehydration becomes chronic…That’s when the situations get a whole lot more serious in no time…
Irregular blood pressure, high cholesterol, weight gain, stomach ulcers, eczema, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, rheumatism, fibromyalgia…
Without enough water in the system, the body cannot carry out the proper cellular nutrient and waste exchange, setting up the perfect conditions for disease.
The sky’s the limit now for what deadly disease you’ll get diagnosed with next. All these symptoms can be narrowed down to one thing…Your body’s desperate cry for a glass of water!
