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

stroke brain

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!

Walt Disney Talked “Dirty” in 1946 Film? Nah….Just Sex Ed Taught the Right Way

Walt Disney was not exempt from the economic hardships during WWII.  His animated entertainment films were not in demand and investors were not financially supporting his efforts BUT; Walt Disney did NOT GIVE UP.  Walt Disney kept filming, but he moved his filming focus from entertainment to education.  He loved children and he was determined to have an impact on them one way or another.

The Story of Menstruation was conceived (no pun intended) as part of a series of films that Disney produced for the American public school system between 1945 -1951.  This is a fabulous (and timeless) film that I believe every young person should watch.  I wish I’d discovered it when my children were young.  You can bet that my grandchildren will watch this film when the time is right…at grandma’s house, of course.

If discussing the human body makes you uncomfortable then you probably shouldn’t watch this 1946 film.  Clearly you still have a little maturing to do of your own.

For those who don’t appreciate the miracle of human life,  you probably shouldn’t watch this film either.  After all, it refers to “a budding human being” and “the gift of life” and there is no mention of a cosmic boom or an insignificant fetus.  You guys are better off watching a science fiction film than a science film any day.

If you listen carefully to this film you’ll hear the a recommendation to “drink plenty of water”.  We don’t hear that much any more.  We’ve replaced water with our “drink of choice” and we call it progression.  If the human body is 70% water, there is no ignoring the need for water every day of the month and no other fluid can possibly take its place.

This film rings true for the era.  Back in the olden days water was a way of life.  Physicians encouraged patients to drink plenty of it every day…in sickness and in health.

From the day of birth we offered up water to our little ones…now we forbid them to drink it for the first 6 months of life.

Even the food pyramid referred to water as the single most important nutrient for the human body and water was considered to be THE MOST important part of our daily routine. Progression…

It’s time to get back to basics…in more ways than one.  The olden days made a lot more sense.

Bottoms-up, Boomers.

A Little Prescription Heroin for Your Pain? The Unborn Deserve Better Than That!

womb

In the U.S., a baby is born with a birth defect every four minutes.   In fact,  according to the CDC, 1 out of every 5 deaths in the first year of life is caused by a birth defect.

In addition to the tremendous burden on families, birth defects take a toll on economics too…at the rate of  $2.6 billion a year.   It should come as no surprise that doctors and pharmaceutical firms play a big role in the rate of birth defects we’re seeing today by over-prescribing heroin-based products (opioids) to anyone with an ache or pain and with no regard for the consequences.  Women of child bearing years should not be prescribed opioids!

Opioids like hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet), morphine (Kadian, Avinza), codeine, are known to reduce the pain signals reaching the brain.   They also numb the areas of the brain that cause emotion which “diminishes the effects of a painful stimulus”.    Opium-based heroin has been numbing emotions (and destroying lives) for hundreds of years.   Putting a prescription label on a bottle heroin doesn’t change what it is.

Researchers found that the risk of birth defects were highest when opium-based painkillers were taken within the first few weeks of a pregnancy. Since most pregnancies are surprises, mom is likely popping pain killers within those first few high-risk weeks (and beyond).  With the popular pain killers being highly addictive (heroin usually is), lots of moms won’t kick the habit no matter what’s at risk.   Sad but true.

From where I’m sitting I know that most pain can be managed without the need for opioids.  Lots of pain stems from abusing your body by not giving it what it needs to battle those problems that are causing you pain.  I went from a lifelong journey of chronic pain to being pain free JUST by making a few changes to give my body what it needed to start mending itself. The most significant change that I made is that I traded Diet Coke for ionized, alkalized, electrically charged, anti-oxidant water.  No more pain OR Percocet for me!

If you, or someone you love, are in child bearing years and using opioids for whatever ails you, PLEASE STOP! The next generation deserves a drug-free fighting chance and we hold the key to doing everything (or not doing everything) to assure that they get it!

Are you using opioids for your pain? 

There is a better way!

Pharmaceutical “Fix” Mentality…Wake Up!

quick fix

As I share ionized, alkalized, electrically charged water with health-challenged people I sometimes hear them say “I don’t feel anything yet” after they’ve consumed a mere glass or two of water.   That’s the “pharmaceutical fix” mentality for you!  We want immediate results from the least amount of effort.  We are an immediate gratification society…microwave ovens, disposable plastic bottles and a pill for everything that ails us!

It takes a little time to get your body in just the right condition for sickness and disease and it will take a little time to get it balanced again.  After all, you don’t feel cancer cells growing until it’s “too late” either, do you?

Shut up…Drink up…See For Yourself!

We know what causes cancer and we already know what to do about it.  The question is; are you willing to take control of your own health or would you rather hope for a “quick fix” when you hit a health crisis?

Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his 1923 discovery of the root cause of cancer.  The problem is acidity and alkalinity is your answer.  You can eat a few green leafy vegetables and you can add lemons to your drinking water but those small steps aren’t enough take care of your bigger problem. You need to seriously address your acidity and those small steps are child’s play compared to what your body really needs!

Nothing compares to Kangen Water® for “what ails you”…except for water found in Lourdes, France, Tlacote, Mexico and just a few other places in world, that is.  Water isn’t “just water” any more than air is “just air” or food is “just food”.  The sooner you wrap your head around that, the sooner you’ll be headed in the right direction to sustain/maintain your own health instead of looking for answers in a prescription bottle.

Thirty million people are already drinking Kangen Water®.  More and more physicians are recommending it.  The “A” List is drinking Kangen Water® including people like Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Martha Stewart, Jillian Michaels, the Seattle Seahawks, Magic Johnson…even the White House is drinking Kangen Water®!

Isn’t it time you got on board?
