Hydration Part 2


So… are you drinking more water? Have you begun to notice the Vitality effects of increased hydration?

In my last post I shared about the incredible importance of drinking great water. And, I shared the first stage of making the change by suggesting some

“good” hydration practices. Today I’m sharing the “better” and “best” tips. You can choose to go for the “gusto” and start with “best” or take it gradually – whatever your personality and vitality goals dictate. Whatever you choose- good luck!

Better Consume more water.

The recommended doses for water are now ½ your weight in ounces every day. For example, a 120 lb female should consume, at least, 60 ounces of water each day (roughly eight 8oz. glasses). This formula provides adequate hydration for only children and small women.  It must be customized to body size – A 200 lb person, for instance, should consume about a gallon a day. Less than that, they will obviously experience dehydration. Keep in mind; this amount of water is just for adequate function of the body. Best –is to drink more. One more thing – be sure to drink your water from glass or BPA free plastics.

Best Consume good water! Desert Hot Springs, in CA has the purest, best tasting water in the world (voted several years in a row). I’ve had the water, and soaked it this amazing, pure, mineral rich water that comes right from a tap route up from the magna inside the earth. It’s incredible. However, drinking water from Desert Hot Springs may not be possible, since they don’t bottle it;) However, there are water systems / filters that come mighty close to this magnificent water.

Eliminating the Dehydrating beverages and replacing with good clean water is fabulous!! What’s best however is giving your body an amazing flow of water that goes immediately right to the power source of the body – inside the cell. You can drink a lot of water, yet to obtain optimal cell / organ / body function – thus optimal vitality- you want it to enter the cell rapidly. Factors that contribute to good water are

  • Filtered
  • Micro-clustered
  • High pH / alkaline

There are great filters out there today, that can provide all three. Some are pricy, yet the water is amazing. The health benefits for higher pH water are almost limitless, thus the ROI is definitely positive. Personally, I drink “Kangen” water from Enagic www.Enagic.com . Life Inoziers www.Lifeinozers.com also have a great product.

If you cannot afford a system for your home, then I would recommend at bare minimum – a Brita filter.

What cool tricks have you incorporated into your life to increase your water intake?

Do you have a water system you recommend?

    Very good ideas to keep the writing moving along. I’ve definitely been to the “bubble bath and some wine” stage. Thanks for fueling my idea bank with some amazing ideas.

  2. The super hydration that is the hallmark of restructured Kangen Water makes performance amazing. Electrical signalling is lightning fast, more oxygen gets to the cell increasing VO2 max and acidic waste that is often stored in fat cells is easily removed. And this type of hydration is unique because it reaches every cell. Hydration drinks used by athletes have high levels of acidity, which rob the body of alkalinizing minerals and steal vital calcium from bones, cartilage and tissues.
