Experts Blame Dehydration for Stroke Damage? It’s About Time!

Headlines in a an article published by Everyday Health reads  “Dehydration Leads to Greater Stroke Damage”.  More accurately it should read  “Dehydration Leads to Greater Stroke Risk“.  Dehydration is your enemy and it’s time to give it the blame that it deserves. The human brain is 85% water and the blood is 90% water.  When the body is deprived of water, the consequences go well beyond what most people understand.  We’ve replaced the body’s NEED for water with a beverage-of-choice and we no longer recognize the signs of dehydration.  

Dr. Paul Bendheim, a clinical professor of neurology from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson, says there are no hard-and-fast rules for staying well-hydrated, despite recommendations to drink eight glasses of water each day.   That’s a no-brainer! Obviously the amount of water each individual needs depends on a number of factors;  activity, weight and status of health just to name a few.  Dr. Bendheim goes on to say, “prior research found that the majority of people are dehydrated when they have a stroke, but it’s not clear why”.  How in the world can it not be clear why people are dehydrated?  It’s interesting to note that most heart attacks and strokes happen in the middle of the night when the body is the most dehydrated.  It’s a very good thing to drink water before you retire for the night!

The 8 Glasses of Water a Day Rule is just THE MINIMUM needed to keep your organs functioning…but it sure isn’t enough to keep your blood hydrated and your veins free and clear!

If you’re active, if you’re sick or if you’re overweight,  you need a whole lot more than just eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day to equip the body to battle things like stroke or high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and a multitude of other conditions!  Water is positively key to your prevention and recovery…you were wired that way!  

Best selling author of “Your body’s Many Cries for Water” and “You’re not sick, you’re thirsty“, Dr.  F. Batmanghelidj, has this to say about water:

“So share this blessing of God {water} with others, and take a stand to stop the present health care ‘sting’ against those who do not yet know that chronic dehydration is the root cause of most degenerative diseases of the human body”

Seniors are generally more dehydrated than younger people primarily because  we lose our sense of thirst as we age.  We may need to be reminded to drink instead of waiting for the brain to trigger thirst.  Lots of people set alarms to be reminded to take medications, perhaps it’s time to set up a reliable reminder to prompt you to drink water too.  Relying on your sense of thirst won’t do the trick.  By the time the average person “feels” thirsty, they are already chronically dehydrated and ready for disaster.

Now that you know that stroke (among LOTS OF OTHER THINGS) can be triggered or worsened by dehydration, don’t you think it’s time to do something about it?

How much research do you need to read before you take action to properly hydrate your body with W A T E R?  It all comes down to basic biology.  No amount of consuming any other fluids can replace the body’s need for water.  In fact, most choice beverages actually cause the body to work harder just to rid itself of toxins introduced by replacing water with another beverage.

If water is so important, don’t you think the kind of water you drink might be important too?  Of course it is!  It doesn’t make much sense to consume water that has no minerals whatsoever (causes the body to deplete itself of minerals from within which leads to degeneration) and it doesn’t make much sense to drink water that is laced with the chemicals necessary to make human waste potable.  After you make the decision to consume the amount of water your body needs; you’ll need to decide what kind of SAFE and HEALTHY water you’ll be introducing to your body.  There aren’t a whole lot of options when you look at it that way!  Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW) is the ONLY way to go for me and my family.   After doing our own research; the choice was easy for us. How much research (and testimonials) do you need to see before you embrace Electrolyzed Reduced Water as being the most beneficial water for the human body?

I know that my days are numbered but I don’t buy in to the idea that I’m supposed to rot prior to my death, so I’m giving my body what it needs to avoid things like stroke, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, etc., instead of looking for a pill to fix my problem later.  After all, there is no cure for any disease whatsoever.  With that in mind, it’s time to FIGHT FOR HEALTH!

Do yourself, your brain (and the rest of your body) and your family a favor.  HYDRATE NOW!
