  • The Body's most important substance next to Air. We are 75% water!

  • Sedentary lifestyles decrease the body's natural urge to drink.

  • Fluids we digest are from substances and beverages that dehydrate.

  • Adequate hydration is required to give the human body peak vitality.

Water is the universal solvent.

    Drinking enough water is vital for maintaining your health. Water is the substance that bathes each of our cells, removes waste products, and assists most biochemical reactions in your body's cells. Unfortunately, most Americans do not drink enough water. As a result, dehydration is one of the more common nutritional deficiencies in the United States. Clinically speaking, when a person is chronically dehydrated, the thirst centers of the brain stop sending signals that indicate a need for water. Most people must force themselves to drink pure water for about a month to reestablish the normal firing of these nerve centers. Once rehydrated, the normal thirst signals will return.

    The key to adequate hydration is to drink pure water. Coffee, tea, or soda dehydrates us even further, and fruit juices are no substitute for pure water. Most people need a minimum of eight 8-ounce glasses of pure water a day. This ensures good digestive functioning, good nerve conduction, elimination of toxins and maintains the suppleness of the discs (shock absorbers) in the spinal column.

    It's best to drink a minimum of 8 to 16 ounces of water within 30 minutes of waking up, since you become slightly dehydrated from breathing at night. You should also drink water at least 30 minutes before meals to maintain the level of stomach acid and promote digestion. Avoid drinking anything more than a small amount of fluid while eating, since this can dilute stomach acid and impair digestion... and absorption in some people.

    Externally, water beckons us to submerge ourselves in its replenishing vitality!

    Being in water is almost as important as drinking it. Water outside and around the largest organ in the body, the skin, aids in detoxification and harmonic balancing.

    During our sessions together, I will instruct you on proper use of therapeutic bath salt solutions and a pleasant hydrotherapy for detoxification, relaxation and reflection.
