Unveiling the Essence of Water: The Life-Sustaining Elixir

Updated: Apr 19

Unveiling the Essence of Water

Dive into the profound importance of water in our lives, from maintaining bodily functions to its critical role in our ecosystems. Discover why water is truly the backbone of existence.

In the beginning, there was water - the lifeblood of our existence, the source of vitality for every living thing. But it's not just a simple liquid; it's a magical elixir that has the power to cleanse, rejuvenate, and replenish our very bodies and souls.  

Think about it: when was the last time you felt truly parched? Maybe you noticed your energy waning, your mood dipping, or even your focus slipping away. That's your body's way of telling you it's craving hydration. 

When we don't drink enough water, it's like depriving ourselves of a fundamental connection to life itself. It's no wonder that chronic dehydration is often at the root of many health issues. Our bodies are intricate systems, and without enough water, things start to go haywire. Our brains, for example, are like sponges soaking up knowledge, but they need plenty of water to function at their best. Ever felt foggy-headed or struggled to concentrate? That might just be your brain's way of saying, "Hey, give me some water, please!" 

It's not just our brains that suffer. Our entire nervous system gets thrown out of whack when we're dehydrated. That can lead to feelings of anxiety, tension, and even clumsiness - not exactly the recipe for a great day, right? Plus, the more stressed we feel, the more water our bodies need to cope, creating a vicious cycle of dehydration and stress. 


Our bodies are thought to be composed of anywhere from 70% to 90% water. Every cell, organ, and system within us contains its own unique water content, and the movement of this water plays a critical role in determining whether we thrive in optimal health or experience symptoms of imbalance and illness. 

Water serves as the primary means of transportation not just for essential materials needed by cells, but also for removing waste substances from them. When the body lacks sufficient water, this transport system falters, leading to a buildup of waste known as "deposits." These deposits can take various forms, such as uric acid crystals causing gout attacks or salt deposits in the brain leading to descriptions of a person as "calcified." Over time, deposits may accumulate in blood vessels, potentially culminating in serious health events like heart attacks, strokes, or lung embolisms.  

Having enough water in your body does wonders for your skin, making it smooth and elastic, and keeps your eyes bright. When your body is well-hydrated, it functions at its best. Babies typically have about 75% water content, but as we age, this decreases. It's common for adults, even young ones, to have levels below 50%. 

But here's the good news: water is our ultimate ally in the quest for vitality and happiness. It's the great equalizer that ties us all together, connecting us not only to each other but to every living creature on this planet. So, let's drink more water - our unsung hero in the journey to better health and a brighter tomorrow.  

Hydration Tips: Essential Water Drinking Strategies for Optimal Health
  • Aim to drink six to ten glasses of water each day, especially if you're hitting the books or feeling stressed. 

  • If you're not hitting the mark, try adding a pinch of Celtic salt to help balance your hydration. 

  • Kickstart your morning with one or two glasses of water to refresh your system and kick off your day on the right foot. 

  • Take deep sips to invigorate your body's water element and keep yourself energized. 

  • Sip water slowly to support your body's natural detoxification process. 

  • Hold water in your mouth for a moment before swallowing to enhance absorption. 

  • Give your water a boost by giving it a good stir. 

  • Keep your internal water pump moving by engaging in activities like running, walking, or simply moving your ankles and legs. 

  • Treat yourself to a foot massage or reflexology session to pamper your feet and promote circulation. 

  • Try some body movement exercises, like making figure eights with your eyes, head, hips, and shoulders, to encourage fluid circulation. 

  • Aid in scar healing by gently moving your hand in a figure eight motion over them. 

  • Remember to speak kindly to yourself and show appreciation, respect, and acceptance to your inner waters.
