What is the cause of dehydration and how can I clear it?

18th December, 2014

All nutrition is affected by dehydration. I regularly hear from clients and students who have been drinking over two litres of water a day, taking magnesium and are still dehydrated and magnesium deficient.

If you suffer from:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Pain
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson's
  • ….. and probably a multitude of other health problems you are dehydrated and magnesium deficient.

There’s a lot of talk about water, and hydrating properly. Equally there is a lot of confusion about the matter too!  I’ve always said, water is crucial to any health regime, you simply can’t go through a day without it, and the quality of the water is so important.

10 Reasons to Drink Good Water

10th October, 2014
The body is 75% water

Did you know that your body is 75% water?  When we teach the kids our Water Ambassador lessons as part of our school program, we tell them this, and go on to tell them they aren't 75% juice, or 75% milk, only 75% water!  Maybe for adults, the equivalent is tea/coffee and wine/beer for the drinkers!  So it makes sense that the liquid we drink the most is water.  And water in our tea, coffee and fruit juice unfortunately doesn't count – only straight water!  So why is replacing this water so important?

Why dehydration is so dangerous

26th September, 2014
Dehydrated and hydrated apple

The scary thing about modern people is that most of us are dehydrated and don’t even realise it. And dehydration is not something that the body can afford to be —its deterioration is almost immediate.

Water is an important structural component of skin cartilage, tissues and organs. For human beings, every part of the body is dependent on water. Our body comprises about 75% water – the brain is 91%, blood is 90%, muscles are 75%, kidney is 82% and bones are 22% water. The functions of our glands and organs will eventually deteriorate if they are not nourished with water.

Alkaline Mineral Water – the Energy Booster!

8th September, 2014
Kids jumping full of energy

Let’s break that title down.

Alkaline mineral water = hydration

Hydration = energy boost

It’s true! Nothing will boost your energy levels better than becoming properly hydrated. And to become hydrated the body needs alkaline mineral water.  Notice that there were two important words before the word ‘water’—alkaline and mineral. For cellular hydration, water must be both alkaline and mineralised.

5 Reasons why you should drink Alkaline Water

27th August, 2014

Drinking filtered alkaline mineral water is foundational for longevity and wellbeing. Water is required for every biological function of the body – circulation, assimilation, digestion, elimination, temperature control and even thought. Our body is made up of 75% water and our brain is 91%, so by drinking water we replenish the water lost on a daily basis. Without water, even the best vitamins and minerals cannot be absorbed or made available for cellular processes and proper bodily function. We need water as much as we need air. Yet it is easy to forget how completely we depend on it.

Adrenal Fatigue – are you in fight, fright or freeze mode?

12th August, 2014

In our natural state of being, we are cool, calm and collected. When both sides of our brain are functioning, our body temperature is regulated and we may focus on whatever it is that we must do. When our adrenals are activated and consequently fatigued, our corpus callosums (which normally allow our brains to gather information from their right and left sides) shut down, reverting us to our primal instincts. We are forced into ‘fight, flight or freeze’ (adrenal fatigue) and get hot and sweaty as our bodies go on guard, becoming confused. Our breath becomes shallow and fear, anxiety, and stress start to settle in as our thought processes stop and we become scattered. We may then try to reclaim the control we have lost by desperately seeking control over other things or people. By becoming control freaks, we then allow ourselves to procrastinate from the pursuit of our ultimate visions.

Another viewpoint on Obesity

6th August, 2014

I want to explore an alternative viewpoint on obesity.

Having come out of the Fitness Industry, the ongoing attitude is that people who are overweight simply eat too much of the wrong stuff and don’t exercise enough.

Maybe that is so. But I am more interested in why that is.
