Water – Essential Liquid of Life - Page 2
These numbers show how essential it is to obtain and preserve clean water for our consumption. According to Paul C. Bragg, we must drink clean water every day in order to maintain a healthy body. As an average, we should drink about eight glasses of clean water every day. Mr. Bragg recommends distilled water, since it is free of pollutants as well as introduced toxins, such as sodium fluoride, erroneously meant to reduce tooth decay. However, one of the most essential benefits of pure water is to flush out toxins from our bodies. As Paul C. Bragg says: ‘Pure, distilled water is truly God’s greatest gift to us, a source of life and health’.
Drinking the right amount of water, based on individual activity, age, and climate, helps to protect us from all kinds of virus infections such as influenza, pneumonia and other infectious diseases. The common flu can be best combated with sufficient bed-rest and, yes: ample supply of pure water. Digestion is another factor that benefits greatly with the proper intake of water. Additionally, we should make it a habit to chew our food thoroughly to help our stomach to ‘pre-digest’ the food.
Another great benefit of proper intake of water is to support our brain functions. We have about 15 billion brain cells that are made up of about 75 percent water. Proper supply seems to stimulate healthy brain function. It will help improve thinking ability and memory.
We should remember, that water can come in several forms. In addition to pure water, we can support our water intake with fresh fruits and vegetables and their juices. We will feel better, look better and function better with the proper consumption of water. That is for sure. The choices are always ours. The basis of all healthy, energetic living, including all kinds of diets start with the proper intake of pure water.
