More Water Please!
“The human body begins its development in a saline solution in the womb and is nourished and cleansed by blood that has almost the same composition as sea water” (Paul Pitchford, Healing with Whole Foods, 580)
Each of us is made up of about 70% water. Apparently, we could survive up to six weeks without food but we wouldn’t last a week without water. Beyond keeping us alive, water regulates our body temperature, clears toxins from our system, nourishes our cells and vital organs and it makes our skin glow. How much to drink? The rule of thumb is at least 64 oz per day adding an additional 8 oz for each hour of activity. Your water intake increases when you are pregnant and can almost double during breast-feeding.
