Why Are Seniors Prone To Respiratory Issues? Dehydration, Of Course!

Image result for senior drinking water IMAGESometimes the solution is SO simple that most people miss it…especially in a world more focused on prescriptions than logic.  Not drinking enough (if any) water is a common UN-RECOGNIZED problem that puts our seniors at UNNECESSARY risk day after day all across America.  Water is the most important nutrient for the human body and when we refuse to consume it we pay the price…especially our seniors.  It doesn’t take much for a dehydrated body to succumb to things like respiratory issues when the lungs lack the fluids they were designed to have!  How can we expect a body to fight back if we refuse to give it what it needs to do battle?

“SO MANY HEALTH ISSUES ARE RELATED TO DEHYDRATION”

As we age we lose our sense of thirst, so if hydrating is a matter of “feeling thirsty” we’ll likely remain dehydrated.   Sometimes hospitals look more like hydration stations than treatment centers.  Just hook-up an I.V. bag to a chronically dehydrated person and you’ll likely see a turnaround in no time at all!  That’s not to say that antibiotics aren’t sometimes necessary too, but consuming enough good old H2O naturally laced with minerals is the key to avoiding all kinds of ailments.

“So many health issues are related to inadequate hydration,” including urinary tract and respiratory infections, frequent falls and other problems, said study author Janet Mentes. She is a professor of nursing at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

According to the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, adults older than 65 have the highest hospital admission rates for dehydration In fact, when it comes to conditions brought on by dehydration, there was a 5% increase in “preventable emergency department visits” between 2008 and 2012 alone!  Apparently we aren’t catching-on to the NEED to dehydrate to stay healthy and we’re filling up the emergency rooms over something that could so simply be avoided. 

“UNDERLYING DEHYDRATION NOT RECOGNIZED”

“Many seniors are under-hydrated for a long period of time, and when they are exposed to a virus or bacteria they are more likely to develop an infection, such as urinary tract infections, pneumonia or other respiratory diseases,” Mentes said in a UCLA news release.

“And they will be treated for the infection, but the underlying under-hydration will not be recognized,” she added. “Thus, an opportunity to educate the individual about adequate fluid intake is missed.”

NOT JUST “PLENTY OF FLUIDS”

I’m not sure where the “plenty of fluids” agenda came from, but absolutely nothing replaces the body’s need for water naturally laced with minerals.  Not dying of thirst (by consuming some sort of fluid) and remaining hydrated are two very different things!  Attempting to hydrate with bottled water isn’t going to cut it because all vital minerals have been REMOVED from bottled water  – the body NEEDS those minerals in water to perform!  I wonder, can bottled water categorically be referred to as “water” if there are no minerals that define the H20?  

WRITE YOUR OWN PRESCRIPTION!

Everyone…everywhere…especially our seniors… should begin writing their own “prescription” for proper hydration beginning TODAY.

Make a commitment to drink the volume of water your body needs to properly function.   Most people require a minimum of 64 ounces of water a day!

If you don’t like the idea of tap or well water (I sure don’t) then find a water solution to help you filter out the bad and make your water HEALTHY without removing vital minerals.  If you need help figuring that part out,  this short-read will help you identify water that is actually beneficial to the human body so that you can avoid drinking water that does you more harm than good!

Keep a log if you need to!  All those little “sips” don’t usually add up to enough water to keep a plant live! Do whatever you have to do to be sure you’re drinking as much as your body NEEDS.  

Maybe if instructions for proper hydration were written on a prescription pad LOTS of people would be sure to do it!  Since that isn’t likely to happen, be true to yourself!

Remaining properly hydrated fends off COUNTLESS medical “conditions!”  for the old AND the young!

The solution is SO simple…be sure you don’t miss it in your search for “medical advice” and prescriptions.

Of Course BPA Can Be Found Inside You!

Image result for toxins found in umbilical cord IMAGE

It doesn’t take a rocket-scientist to understand how toxins from plastics can be found in the umbilical cord of our newborn babies, in our blood and in our tissues.  Generations of exposure to those toxins that can be found in EVERY plastic bottle is always leached into your water, and it always finds it’s way into the body.  When N.I.H (National Institute of Health,  the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and public health research) labels our children as being “PRE-POLLUTED” then you KNOW we have bigger problems than most people want to acknowledge at all.

Most bottled water begins with tap water that goes through the reverse osmosis process before it is “enhanced”.  Reverse osmosis water was designed for industrial use and it was never intended for human consumption!  There are a few things about the process that you should be aware of:

  1. The average temperature of water that is processed through reverse osmosis is 190°.  This means that the source water has already reached temperatures that cause the chemicals to leach out from the plastic BEFORE you buy and refrigerate it!  In other words, the dangers of consuming fluids from a plastic bottle begin at the bottling plant and there’s nothing you can do to prevent exposure to these chemicals whatsoever.
  2. It takes approximately 5 liters of water to produce (and fill) a 1 liter bottle of water using the reverse osmosis process.  If you understand the volatility of our natural resources, this should be of great concern to you!
  3. The reverse osmosis process doesn’t discriminate – is very good at removing the bad things (at least before it hits the bottle, that is) but it removes all of the natural minerals right along with the bad things.  Water without minerals has absolutely NO BENEFIT to the human body whatsoever.  This is true for distilled water too!

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD PLASTIC

Things can get pretty confusing when we’re talking about plastic.  Let’s simplify the message:

  1. It doesn’t matter if the plastic is made with BPA or if it’s BPA-free.
  2. It doesn’t matter if the BPA has been replaced with BSA which has been scientifically proven to be just as bad for you as BPA
  3. It doesn’t matter if the plastic is hard or soft

There is NO such thing as safe plastic…not for you and your family, and not for the environment.  Just say “NO” to all plastics…especially those used for your water consumption!

If you decide to take a positive step in the right direction by making the decision to do away with all those harmful plastics impacting YOUR health (and the health of the future generations) reach out to me.  There is a better, healthier way and it doesn’t involve a toxic water bottle filled with clear fluids. Your body will thank you for it, the future generations will thank you for it AND the environmental will thank you for it too.

Lower IQ? Blame it on the Arsenic in Your Water!

arsenic

A new  study was just released that correlates exposure to arsenic in well water with a lower IQ.  Who put arsenic in the water?

Arsenic occurs naturally in groundwater, which means that people who get their water from wells may be consuming it.  To make matters worse, inorganic arsenic was used for farming purposes for years and, although it has been banned for use in the U.S. for 2 decades, contaminants can remain in the soil for 40 years or more.  It is no secret that whatever is in the soil will ultimately end up in the water supply.  In fact, ground water contamination is a killer and USGS researchers recommend that people who rely on wells invest in a filtration system.

I talk to a lot of people about water and it never ceases to amaze me how little most  know (and understand) about it.  Most people who rely on well water for their homes have a false sense of security about the safety of their water.   Apparently if it’s clear and clean-looking and it passes their “taste test” they believe that it’s safe and healthy.   Nothing could be farther from the truth.

I live in rural Virginia and I get my water from a well.   The land surrounding my home was farmed for many years before it was sold off and developed. Undoubtedly arsenic was applied to the fields for pesticide purposes for a  long time and when my well was tested I was shocked at the level of arsenic found in my tap water!

Water is the most vital nutrient for the human body and it’s nothing to take for granted.  Whether you rely on municipal water, well water or commercially bottled water you MUST take action to make it safe for you and your family.  My action involves purification and ionization.  Today my family has access to the safest, healthiest (and best tasting) water available anywhere.

What about you?  Will you be taking action to assure that you have safe, healthy drinking water or are you content to keep your head in the sand?  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
