Here are the most important things to remember about water from this podcast:
The basic formula I use is a minimum of one-half your body weight in ounces of the purest water available to you and ¼ tsp of pure, natural, unprocessed sea salt for every 32 oz. (That means Celtic sea or Himalayan crystal salt.) You can put 1/4 tsp. into a couple of glasses or just include the right amount in your food. I like putting it in my water so I know I'm getting it, even though I use salt when I prepare my food.
This is a key 3D Living principle and is a foundational part of the Today’s the Day plan.
You cannot be truly healthy and be dehydrated. Here are some interesting water facts to illustrate why hydration with water is so important: approximately 70% of an adult’s body is made up of water; muscle is 75% water; bones are 50% water; the brain is 70% water; lungs are 90% water; 83% of our blood is water; by the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost over 1% of its total water and is already dehydrated.
Drinking the proper amount of the best quality, pure water is the first step.
Sea salt has all the minerals that your blood naturally contains and that your body craves. It helps balance electrolytes with all the water you take in. It helps keep your system alkalized. Properly hydrated blood is thinner, flows more easily, and helps to lower blood pressure naturally. Also, according to Dr. B, if we drink too much water and don’t take in enough salt for our water intake, the body will release histamine. That means allergy symptoms!
The most common comment from clients who begin using the salt/water is that they have so much more energy! See the basic formula above.
The best way to begin your day is this: drink 16 oz. of cold water. It is believed to be most highly structured and beneficial when cold. Also, do this 30 minutes before each meal, and you boost metabolism by 30%. It also fills you up and is the absolute best appetite suppressant there is!
Another excellent book I highly recommend that will explain all this in much more detail is "Salt Your Way to Health" by Dr. David Brownstein, as well as any of Dr. B's books.
Dr. Emoto did scientific research on how water responds to words - spoken or written. He chose to study water because it is the most abundant substance on earth and in our bodies as well. He found that words of love, blessing and gratitude created perfect, beautiful, ordered ice crystals - whether spoken over the water or written on the container! Words of anger, hatred and cursing created ugly, distorted crystals. The dramatic photographs of his results are startling. If water in containers responds this way, think how your body responds to your words!
