DRINKING LOTS OF WATER


WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE, BUT NOT A DROP TO
 DRINK…


This may have been true for the ancient mariner a couple of centuries ago, but there is NO excuse today!

 


Over 20 years ago, I was telling my clients…Drink More Water. At the time it was more of an anomaly than I realized. Now, you hear and see it on every corner you turn. The authorities espousing all the Good reasons for doing so, and most all these reason are good and generally true.

Now I’d like to tell you why I was telling my clients to do so – sooooo many years ago. Most of it is now generally recognize, although back then it was not!

#1. Water (that is tap and mineral water) tend serve as a conductor of electricity – therefore assisting the CNS (Central Nervous System) in its “functions” and aiding to keep the spine flexible.

#2. In Chinese medicine the organ “system” (including the meridian associated with the organ), that governs the overall quality of the back and the back muscles…is the Bladder – which by the way runs along both sides of the spine – and works with its Yin counterpart Kidney. And…an excellent source for re-balancing, as well as maintaining the integrity of the Bladder/Kidney meridians is………Drinking lots of Water…again, assisting to keep the Spine Flexible!

#3. The general rule, it helps to clear out toxins that have just been stirred up as a result of the massage or bodywork.

At the bottom of the “Lifestyle’s” page, I mention an idea that went like this Good>>Better>>Best. If Good is all you can get – Go for it. But, always shoot for Better and aim for the Best! This is one of those areas where this truly applies:

If you haven’t already, form the habit……………. AND DRINK, DRINK, DRINK

  • GOOD:  It is good to drink tap water than No water at all.
  • BETTER:  It is better to drink bottled or filtered water 
  • BEST:  It is best to drink Natural Spring Water!
Tip* Drinking water can be insipid. So for me, it became a conviction. I vowed to drink, at minimum, an 8 ounce glass of water, every two hours, every day. In order to do this, I made certain to keep a resource nearby. Systematically, I would set the alarm on my cell to remind me. When the alarm sounded, I did not sip my water! I drank it completely, and reset the alarm.This was how I established a water habit. Try it!
