The Importance Of Water To The Human Body

The Importance Of Water To The Human BodyFor centuries, humans have been searching for a magic elixir or potion that can extend life, heal sickness, and make us feel euphoric and forever young. Recent studies are beginning to show that the elusive liquid has been right under our noses the entire time. It makes up most of our planet and it makes up the majority of our bodies. The magical liquid has been with us since the beginning of time but we are only now starting to understand the wondrous qualities of H2O, better known as water.

The fluids that flow throughout our body create a sense of well being and help to keep us healthy. The human body is a water tank built to exist on minerals and water. We are made up of 72% water, 8% chemical compound combinations, and 20% solid tissue and bone. Therefore, it stands to reason that the consumption of water, or lack of consumption, will have a profound impact on the condition and state of our body. Water consumption is responsible for almost every healing process that our bodies possess.

Healing And Water

Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves. Over the last decade scientists have studied that ability and it’s connection to water consumption. It is in our nature to be as young and healthy as possible. We are designed to heal ourselves physically, with all the complex components of the body working in unison to achieve the healing process. When we are cut, our skin heals itself. If we break a bone or sustain any type of injury, our body immediately and instinctively begins the healing process. In every single one of these processes, there is one common denominator, water.

Blood And Water

Human blood is the very life force of the body. It delivers oxygen, nutrients and antibodies to fight bacteria and infections, whenever and wherever the body needs it most. Blood is made up of 83% water. In order for blood to do its job properly, the body must be adequately hydrated with clean, healthy water. If the hydration levels are too high or too low, or if the water is contaminated, our blood is negatively affected and practically every aspect of our health is as well.

The Brain And Water

The human brain consists of 80% water and is literally ‘the brains behind the operation’ that is known as the human body. It controls every single process that goes on inside us and works by constantly transmitting and receiving electrical signals through the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS is a system of intricate waterways throughout the body. The fluid in our nerves is made up almost exclusively of water and minerals. If the fluid is corrupted or impure, the electrical signals or messages may become distorted or delayed. Growing numbers of scientists believe the distortion of these messages could be the leading cause of maladies such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Alzheimer’s Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or even depression and anxiety. The clarity of the signals has a huge effect on the ability to handle stress and it can even affect motor coordination. Since water plays such an important and colossal role in our brains and central nervous system, the quality of the water could be one of the biggest factors in staying healthy and extended longevity.

Energy And Water

Energy in the human body comes from a chemical compound named Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP). When water, through the act of osmosis, flows through the cell membranes, hydroelectric energy and ATP are produced. The ATP is stored in pools of energy and wind up being used as chemical energy to operate and fuel our body. The mineral and water content of our contaminant free bodily fluids create the ideal setting for energy production. Water purity has a major effect on strength and energy levels. Whenever the water is impure, our body must use up a certain amount of energy and strength to lessen the negative impact of the contaminant. Water is also a key ingredient that our liver utilizes to convert fat into usable energy. Drinking lots of clean water speeds up the metabolism and assists the body in the assimilation of nutrients. The more nutrients we take in the more energy and strength we get out of them.

Detoxification And Water

The detoxification system is probably the single most important factor to living a long and healthy life. It also requires the largest intake of clean water to work properly. A common myth is that drinking 8 glasses of water per day is the perfect amount, but drinking 8 glasses will only provide the minimum amount of health benefits. Our body uses at least that amount to maintain it’s basic functions like digestion, keeping a constant temperature, and more. Even our heartbeat uses up water. By consuming a lot of clean water, we can boost the body’s ability to filter and flush out any harmful toxins. Besides the quantity of water ingested, the quality is equally as important. The greater the amount of chemicals in the water, such as chlorine, the less that water will be able to contribute to the detoxification process.

The recommended amount of water to live a healthy lifestyle is 10-12 glasses per day, but 14-16 glasses a day will achieve even better results. Water benefits your ability to heal, blood, brain, energy level, and the detoxification process. Try drinking a lot of water. You will be amazed at just how great it makes you feel.

Keeping our body clean on the inside is not only essential to good health, but an action of appreciation for such a wondrous gift, LIFE!

 

Is Aspirin Easy to Use

AspirinAspirin to some, acetylsalicylic acid to others, this synthetic compound helps relieve pain and reduce inflammation. So it comes to no surprise that many doctors recommend it when dealing with fevers or pain recovery. A few even believe it can help prevent heart attacks.

But is this pill really some sort wonder pill? Aspirin is already a source to use to help reduce fevers, relieve pain especially in muscular joints, and stop headaches. Now a study earlier this year suggests aspirin can combine with enzyme GAPDH which causes human cells to die on purpose.

By limiting GAPDH, aspirin could limit cell death and thus stop diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Another recent study shows that daily usage of a low doses (81-100 milligrams or less) of aspirin for at least a decade can reduce the threat of cancer up to 35-50 percent. These studies are coming out now because scientists only recently began to figure out why aspirin works even though it has been regularly used for more than a century. Its medicinal uses were actually first theorized way back around 400 B.C. by a physician named Hippocrates. He claimed that if a bark of a willow tree was ground into powder, it could treat pains and fevers. Because of his work and discovers, Hippocrates is now regarded as the father of modern medicine.

Yet it wasn’t until 1829 when the salicin was a compound found in the bark as the real reason for the successful treatment. Salicin helps in headaches, but is hard on the stomach and cause bleeding in the digestive tract. Decades later, the compound was mixed in with sodium and acetyl chloride, thus creating acetylsalicylic acid. By 1899, the German pharmaceutical company Bayer had trademarked the name Aspirin and was selling the pill for medicinal purposes. Oddly, it wasn’t until the 1970s when scientists began to figure out how aspirin worked.

Aspirin reduces pain by limiting prostoglandins, a hormone-like compound formed by the body’s enzymes. When in pain, prostoglandins are created to provide neural response to the brain. With aspirin bonding with them, it limits the process and limits the pain. The compound also is bond with platelets which initiates blood clotting. The bonding again limits the process, helping to prevent blood clots. Aspirin also affects the hypothalamus which regulates body temperature, thus causing fevers to go down. However, prostoglandins also do some good as it is the compound which keeps stomach lining thick.

Taking aspirin too often can cause stomach bleeding as the lining are no longer keeping the stomach acids contained to just digesting one’s food intake. Also, the benefits of aspirin can sometimes be overstated. While it can reduce a second heart attack, it won’t stop heart attacks or strokes from occurring in people with no previous hereditary issue. Even the safety coating of aspirin to protect against stomach bleeding could only result in the small intestine to suffer from bleeding. Still, many doctors recommend many people to take it every day, but should they?

Those who do take it regularly should be on the lookout for potential negative side effects. Also, aspirin isn’t for everyone. People who have stomach ulcers and bleeding disorders shouldn’t be taking aspirin. Some people are allergic to aspirin or ibuprofen. Children under ages of 16 shouldn’t take it unless under specific medical supervision. Speaking of medical supervision, there are other groups who should be wary of taking aspirin and should consult a physician before doing so.

Those include people who suffer from asthma, who have liver and kidney problems, or women late in their pregnancies. So while aspirin can be safe for some, it could produce more harmful effects for others. In other words, be sure to consult with a doctor about one’s medical condition before using it daily.

 

5 Ways To Get You Motivated About A Healthy Lifestyle

Healthy LifestyleIt’s that time of the year when people vow to make changes. Maybe it’s time to quit smoking, learn another language or take that kickboxing class you’ve been putting off all of last year. Regardless of what it is, you want to improve yourself in one way or another. One of the most common resolutions that people make is to get in better shape. It’s no coincidence that January is the month when gyms rack up the most enrollments. How many of these new members will you see still see there in April? If you really want to make changes, do it in a way that will set you up for long term success. Don’t flip a switch and decide that you’re all of a sudden a fitness enthusiast. That’s a recipe for failure. Here are five ways that you can make your new venture a successful one.

Create a Plan

Plan your day from beginning to end. From the time you wake up to the time you plan to retire for the night. Plan the day and times for laundry, grocery shopping and so on. Once you’ve done that, pick three days that you cleared your schedule to exercise for 45 minutes. It can be at home or at a gym so plan commute time accordingly. If waking up early before work is your best option, plan to get to bed earlier so you can wake up ready to go. If you plan to go after work, bring a gym bag to work so that you don’t have to stop home afterwards. Once you consistently go three times a week, try adding a fourth day to the mix.

Make Gradual Changes

Bad habits didn’t develop overnight and they can’t be undone in that manner either. These toxins that we rely on have addictive properties that are hard to shake. The probability of quitting smoking by going from three packs a day to none at all is highly unlikely. Just like with everything else, it takes time and a consistent effort. The same goes with eating sugars, drinking coffee and a sedentary lifestyle. Take small steps in the right direction. Start with reducing the amounts of sugars you eat. Make a goal every week to eat less and less sugar. From drinks to foods, gradually phase them out of your diet. While doing this, try to sneak some exercise into your routine. If three times a week seems extreme, try two times, maybe for thirty minutes to start. Then lengthen your workouts and up your weekly visits as you get more accustomed to that lifestyle.

Set Goals For Yourself

Set goals to eliminate bad foods from your diet, to get to the gym and to improve your current fitness level. Allow yourself 50 grams (if you consume more than that) of sugar for the week and 2 gym visits. Practice pushups until failure. If you can do 6 repetitions at the moment, set a goal for to reach 10 repetitions in three weeks for example. Keep setting new challenges and new goals that will build on your previous results. Not only will it keep you more engaged in your workouts, it will let you track your progress.

Challenge Friends

You held a plank for one minute for your first time. You’re excited, now challenge a friend or coworker to do the same. You did it, now see how long it takes them to do it. Maybe a weight loss challenge, who can do the most pushups or hold the longest plank. The more people engaged, the easier it becomes. You may even find a gym partner, which is the best way to push yourself through those rough days that you probably wouldn’t make it. You can’t let your gym partner go alone, they need you!

Don’t Listen To Bad Advice

If you seek advice or nutrition counseling, go to a professional and disregard what anyone else has to say. Follow their advice and see where it leads you over a three month period. Don’t give up after a week because you aren’t seeing results. Only take advice from one person at a time. If you hired a personal trainer or dietician, take their advice and their advice only. The more people you ask for advice, the more contradictory information you will receive. Everyone has their own opinion or some silly fad diet that worked for them or how to build muscle or lose weight. Don’t look for shortcuts or a quick and easy fix because there aren’t any. Pace yourself throughout the journey and enjoy each step you take.

The Benefits of Deep Breathing

Deep BreathingWhen we were born, we knew how to breathe correctly. We instinctively knew to breathe deeply. Our breaths were rhythmical and relaxed. At the time of our very first breath, we knew what to do.

Somewhere along the line we forgot how to breathe deeply. We may have been frightened, stressed or shocked. We may have panicked and our automatic response was to breathe quickly into our chests. Over time this became our new habit. When I look around a yoga class, I see most people are shallow breathing. But if we do this for a long period of time, we begin to think this is normal.

As you sit at your computer now, notice what your breath is doing. Now breathe deeply. Notice what your shoulders are doing and how your stomach is feeling. Now sit up straight, roll your shoulders back and down. Release any tension in your stomach. Now check in with your breath. Are you breathing deeply into your stomach? This new habit will take effort to maintain at first. Keep checking in with your breath during the day and eventually any tightness in your stomach will reduce.

Shallow breathing means that our organs do not get the same level of oxygen as they do during deep breathing. When you take a long inhale, imagine the air is filling your lungs and expanding your diaphragm. Your intestines are filled with fresh oxygen. If you lay the alveoli out flat (the air sacks in your lungs), they would be the size of a one bedroom flat which is about 450 square feet. Imagine how much more efficient and healthy our bodies would be if we breathed properly!

During shallow breathing, your sympathetic nervous system goes into a state of stress. This informs your body that you are stressed and releases the associated stress hormones. This then creates an imbalance in the body.

Imagine the difference to our health, vitality and energy if we were to breathe deeply everyday. Imagine the positive impact on our performance. Breathing deeply helps your body to perform at its best. It relieves tension, stress and fear. I find that when my breathing is quick and shallow, then my mind is over active. When I consciously control my breathing and aim for deep inhales and long exhales, my mind becomes more peaceful and I am less stressed.

Check how you are breathing now. Are you breathing deeply?

How to Know If You Need a Neurologist

NeurologistNeurologists are specialists who are qualified to diagnose and treat diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Some of the most common neurological diseases include: Alzheimer’s – occurs in the elderly, it involves memory loss. Migraine – more common in women, it refers to the throbbing pain on a part of the brain; and Parkinsons – which refers to the trembling of hands and feet, generally occurs in people over 50.

There are some common symptoms of neurological diseases which may indicate that a person requires further investigation. These symptoms include partial or complete paralysis, Muscle weakness, Partial or complete loss of sensation, and Seizures. People may also experience difficulty in reading and writing, unexplained pain, and decreased alertness.

A staggering 5,00,000 young boys in India are suffering from Muscular Dystrophy. This is a group of diseases, generally inherited that occur due to the mutations in the dystrophine gene and even lack of nutrition. This disease leads to the weakening of ultimately, muscle waste. Occurring in young males more, the symptoms of muscular dystrophy usually appear in early childhood. The best life of a person suffering from this disease typically does not exceed beyond late 20s. More noise needs to be made about this disease to spread awareness and notice symptoms early on in kids to start treating the disease.

Contrary to what people believe, Alzheimer’s is another common disease among the elderly above 65 years of age. This disease involves the loss of ability to remember, reason and go about day-to-day activities. As Alzheimer’s progresses, more brain cells die. This is the reason why early detection is vital. Although a cure is yet to be discovered, proper medication and management of the disease can help with the symptoms and support the patient to perform daily tasks.

A recent study reveals that one could prevent any neurological disorders by adopting a healthier lifestyle including exercise. According to the research, exercise slows the progression when it release ‘exercise hormones’ in the brain when a person is exercising. This supports the brain, keeping it healthier and therefore, symptoms protecting the brain from shrinking.

The medical advancements in the field of neurology point in one direction. While exercise lessens the chances of a person to have a serious neurological problem, people should keep an eye open for any unusual health symptoms. A regular checkup with the family doctor will be a safe bet.
