The pain relieving expert opens the floodgates, because today we are talking about water. What’s there to talk about, some think, I’ll open the bottle and “down with the stuff”.If only it were that easy, right? Into the boats – we set off.
Every day, the body loses water through urine and sweat glands – even if you don’t sweat on purpose. As a result, this fluid must be constantly supplied.
4 “Drinks” , which I do not see as adequate replenishers, are:
-Coffee, energy drinks – caffeine acts as a diuretic.
-Lemonades, fruit juices and sweetened drinks (primary sources of fructose)
-Artificially sweetened drinks – generally worsen general health.
-Beer, i.e. alcohol in general. They make fun, of course. But still not adequate.
So the key is to drink pure water. But how much water do you need every day? Water requirements can vary greatly from day to day, depending on a number of factors, such as your activity level and weather conditions.
Personally, I assume 1 litre of pure water per 20kg of body weight. But if I’m not thirsty at all, what then? What are the signs then?
-tiredness and/or mood swings;
-back pain or joint pain;
-pale, dry skin and/or pronounced wrinkles;
-dark, concentrated urine and/or constipation.
Another incentive for a large intake of water is the flushing out of waste and toxins. (Pain patients listen up!) The joint discs consist to a large extent of water. Wouldn’t it make sense to keep them as plump as possible, especially if you already have pain in your joints? More like a plump grape.
All right, tap water then. Really?
Most tap water contains a number of harmful pollutants including fluoride, disinfection by-products, chemicals, radiation, heavy metals and pharmaceutical drugs (including birth control pills).
Well then, water from the supermarket. Really? Drinking from plastic water bottles can pose serious health risks from industrial chemicals such as bisphenol-A and bisphenol-S (BPA/BPS) and phthalates that leach from the plastic itself into the contents of the bottle. BPA and BPS are oestrogen-like chemicals that have been linked to reproductive disorders, learning and behavioural problems, immune dysfunction and prostate and breast cancer. Phthalates are also endocrine disruptors and have been linked to a variety of developmental and reproductive effects as well as liver cancer.
Completely confused, aren’t you? My god, distilled water it is. Really?
That’s too acidic and not recommended for prolonged use. However, it can be beneficial for temporary detoxification purposes. The ideal pH of your water should be between 6.5 and 7.5, which is neutral.
Yeah, what the hell then? How about mountain water, from a spring in the mountains. I realise that’s not really practical in Ireland now. If you have access to your own spring – congratulations. There´s still the proper amount, you´ve to intake.
I’ll tell you how I do it: I have two water filter systems. One pre-filters the tap water. I fill this water into the second system (a table filter).
-Note: The quite cheap “Brita” filter from the supermarket – that’s not what I mean by adequate filtration.
I’d do some more research if I were you.
Then I catch the water and “collect it” in jugs, which I then empty as needed. The jugs contain precious stones (e.g. Rock crystal or Schungite) that revitalise the water. In addition, if the need arises, there is also a turbulator. This gives the water a hexagonal structure. And makes the water considerably more bioavailable.
Of course, the filter cartridges have to be replaced from time to time. Since I “save” water from the supermarket, this is a “+ / – zero – expenditure”, with a tendency to minus zero. Sure, the starter set has to be purchased at the beginning. But the “profit” increases over time. That’s all I have to say to give you a rough overview. Of course I can go into the subject in more depth…It’s up to you.
And if you finally want to get rid of your pain, I’m sure you’ll find out how to contact me.
See you next time.
