Water For Our Bodies
 
 

Water is indispensable for all forms of life. Experts agree that we need six to eight glasses of water per day to maintain optimum health. The daily cleansing of wastes from each cell, the flushing of the alimentary canal, and the purifying of the blood are all dependant on our drinking water.

 

Our bodies lose water by various means - through the kidneys, through breathing, and through perspiration and sweat. Without sufficient water, food cannot be properly digested, absorbed and carried to all parts of the blood stream. Waste-bearing water (urine) is necessary to flush away the end products of metabolism. And without water to moisten the surface of the lungs, there can be no intake of oxygen or expulsion of carbon dioxide.

Allen E. Banik, O.D., in his book The Choice is Clear, calls water "nature's own liquid life line of health". But today, with problems of pollution, with poisonous additives in our tap water as well as the presence of inorganic minerals, good water is hard to come by. In today's polluted world, distilled water is the purest water. Since it assists in the elimination of many harmful substances, it has been recommended for detoxification and fasting programs and for helping clean out the cells, organs and fluids of the body.
