The I.V. Bag Holds a Lot More Than Just Water…It Holds The Answers to LOTS of Questions about Hydration

more IV

If you find yourself admitted to the hospital for just about any reason,  the FIRST “treatment” you’ll get (after you’ve gone through the initial vital signs check) is an I.V.  I don’t think we give enough thought to the need for an I.V. and I believe that a lot of questions about hydration can be found through the I.V. protocol that is followed by hospitals.

Although your doctor may sing a different tune when you’re out-patient (drink plenty of “fluids”), they all follow the rule-book for what the body really needs when you’re in-patient…they prescribe water.

The purpose of an I.V. is to supply extra water to a dehydrated patient and/or to assure that the daily water and salt needs or “maintenance needs” are met for patients unable to take them by mouth.  Naturally, there are circumstances through which the patient would not be physically able to drink water but; for the sake of staff convenience AND to enhance the billable goods, the I.V. protocol is followed for almost everybody.  I’m quite sure that the fact that most Americans are chronically dehydrated makes an automatic I.V. make a whole lot of sense.

Although the amount of I.V. fluids infused depends largely on the weight and the needs of the patient, according to Web MD it is typically between 1.5 and 3 liters (50-100 ounces)  a day for the average adult.  Rest assured, the medical professionals KNOW that we need 50-100 ounces of water just to hydrate in a sedentary state.  Funny how physicians fail to emphasize the need for lots of water OUTSIDE of the walls of the hospital.  When was the last time you drank 50-100 ounces of water?  If you need 50-100 ounces of water just to sustain hydration in a SEDENTARY state, imagine how much more water the body needs when it’s actually moving around living life!

Many patients “lose” their symptoms when they’re (finally) hydrated using I.V. fluids!  Hmm…

Whether you’re getting your water through an I.V. bag or you’re drinking it out of a bottle, it ALWAYS matters what KIND of water you consume and what’s “in” or NOT in your water makes a huge difference for your health.  For example, I.V. fluids aren’t just purified water, they contain saline to balance the electrolytes and here’s why according to Wikipedia:

If the {I.V.} solution were pure water you would die. When blood cells are exposed to pure water the increased salts in the cell cause the water to flow in and would cause the red blood cells to burst (this is called lysis). The blood itself is a little salty (which is why you rinse your eyes with saline). The IV bags are usually plain saline, sometimes they are saline mixed with a form of sugar. The sugar provides energy for the body. (it is not table sugar)

So you see?  The I.V. protocol holds the key to answers about proper hydration with the “right” kind of water.  IT MATTERS how much water we consume to maintain a healthy state and IT MATTERS what kind of water we drink to properly hydrate the human cells….in and OUT of the hospital.

If the QUANTITY and the QUALITY of your I.V. water matters that much…don’t you think the QUANTITY and the QUALITY of the water you consume by mouth does too?

HEALTHY drinking water won’t come from a bottle of your favorite “purified” water or from your tap. You can’t get healthy water by running it through a Brita-type filter or through the water dispenser on your fridge.  You CAN get healthy water from places like the fountains of Lourdes, France or Tlacote, Mexico (or a few other exotic places in the world) if you’re willing to move there to get it.  Otherwise, your best option is to return your water to its original state (aka “healthy”) by restructuring it using a quality water ionizer that produces “ELECTROLYZED REDUCED WATER”.   More and more medical professionals across the globe are recommending electrolyzed reduced water after tens of thousands of scientific studies have proven that it IS beneficial to the human body.  Water isn’t “just water” any more than food is “just food.”

Micro What? I Thought Water Was Just Water!

aquaporin_cartoon_largeIn 2003  Peter Agre of John Hopkins University was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work detailing the aquaporins or, as he called it, “The plumbing system for cells.”  This was eye-opening discovery because we had little or no understanding of the process behind the hydration and nourishment of the human cells prior to this.

Below is my attempt at explaining the significance of this discovery in simple terms:

Molecules cluster together and are formed through hydrogen bonding.   When water is ionized, the electrical properties of the water is altered and the bonds that keeps the clusters together is ultimately weakened.  When this bond is weakened, the molecule clusters give way and smaller molecule clusters are formed.

Water that has not been ionized (tap/bottled/etc) has molecules that cluster in groups of 10-20 which is too large to adequately penetrate the human cell through the “the plumbing system”.  Water that has been ionized will typically have molecules clustered in groups of 5-8 which can easily penetrate the “plumbing system”.  This is why fresh ionized water is often referred to as “micro-clustered” and/or hexagonal water.  There is a tremendous amount of research available on Pubmed on the benefits of drinking ionized aka  hexagonal water if you’d like to continue research on your own.

I’m no expert but it only makes sense to me that the “plumbing system for the cells” is begging for  smaller molecule clusters so that it can hydrate and nourish the human cell.  I’ll keep drinking my alkaline, hexagonal, ionized Kangen Water.   After all, quenching thirst without hydrating the body at the cellular level doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

Bottoms-up boomers!
