Water Water Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink!

Woman with arms outstretchedIn Ireland we get approx. 40 inches of rainfall each year. In many mountainous regions it can be as high as 118 inches. That’s a lot of water to be wasting each and every year. This is our oil and unlike the Swiss who have massive concrete water reserves built into their mountains we watch all our water flow into the sea.

Human beings can survive for 30 to 40 days without food, but 3 to 5 days without water will be disastrous for the body. The average person’s body is composed of 70% water.

The body’s water supply is involved in nearly every bodily process such as digestion, circulation, absorption, excretion and so on.

Water is primary in the transport of nutrients within the body, and is necessary for all the building functions of the body. Water is essential to maintaining body temperature which must be at 98.6 degrees.

Any drop in the body’s water volume can cause a decline in blood volume. This triggers the hypothalamus in the brain to send a demand for a drink. Unfortunately many people only drink the bare minimum and it’s not enough to cover the full water loss in the body. The result is dehydration. Also as we get older this sense of thirst becomes dulled. At the same time we have a lower percentage of water reserves in our bodies than when we were younger. This is why it is vital to drink water even when we are not thirsty.
