The healing power of water

The fact that water has a high value in healing seems to be a knowledge that has gone missing in our day and age of sodas and coffee. Correct intake of water can cure many problems so lets take a closer look at water.

Some facts about water
Water is of major importance to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90 percent of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60 percent of the human body is water, the brain is composed of 70 percent water, blood is 82 percent water, and the lungs are nearly 90 percent water.
The unique qualities and properties of water are what make it so important and basic to life. The cells in our bodies are full of water. The excellent ability of water to dissolve so many substances allows our cells to use valuable nutrients, minerals, and chemicals in biological processes. Water's "stickiness" (from surface tension) plays a part in our body's ability to transport these elements all through ourselves. The carbohydrates and proteins that our bodies use as food are metabolised and transported by water in the bloodstream. No less important is the ability of water to transport waste material out of our bodies.

You definitely need it
Your body consists of a lot of water. Just imagine if you drained away the water in your body, not much left is there? It is easy to see that your body needs water and it needs a lot. Drink water and your body will respond positively, on the other hand if you do not drink enough your body will start to move water from less essential systems to more vital systems. Question is what systems in your body would you would classify as less vital? 75% of your brain tissue consists of water and your brain runs 7 days per week and 24 hours per day. Your brain needs water more than any other organ since your whole system depends on a functioning brain. When starting to drink more water one of the first things you will notice is that your will feel more "clear".

Water an effective medicine
Water is nature's most effective medicine because it is essential for cleaning and removing toxins from the body. When your body does not get enough water it cannot remove toxins and problems start occurring. When you are under stress, growth or any other kind of change including healing, your body will produce chemicals and other waste that need to be removed from your system. If you think about it most types of healing suggests that you drink water after a session, I wonder why
?! Water will remove waste through your lungs, skin (sweat), urine and faeces. Enough water will mean that your system will effectively remove toxins and help keeping you healthy.

Drink enough and stay healthy
It is recommended that you drink at least eight glasses of eight ounces water per day (8 glasses of 2,5dl). If you are in warmer climates you might need to drink up to twice that amount. Give your body the water it needs to function properly and you will find that just drinking more water can actually solve many problems. Water is known to have an effect on diverse diseases like: angina, arthritis, asthma, back problems, depression, diabetes, excess weight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraine, MS (multiple sclerosis) just to mention a few.

Not just any fluid
In most countries tap water is contaminated or not really fit for drinking, in such cases you need to install a water purifier. If possible drink good quality bottled water. Remember just because it is wet does not mean it is water! Coffee, tea, beer, soda, juice etc. all contain dehydrating agents, you might actually lose more fluid than you take in. Stick to water!

It is never too late for water
You can never drink too much water (but as with anything else don't overdo it), water will help your system to clear itself of toxins and make you feel better. Remember that starting a new habit of drinking water properly will not overnight create results. Your problems may have taken time to develop, therefore it will also take time to cure them.

Reiki and water
Naturallyyou can use Reiki to improve the healing powers of the water you drink. Hold your hands around the glass of water you are about to drink and let Reiki flow. If you have Reiki II you can use the symbols to further help the process. Keep your intention on the fact that you want the water to be as pure and healthy as possible for you at this moment.

One last thing: You are not ill - your body is thirsty!
