Have you ever thought that you don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because you’ll have to get up during the night? Here is another question you might have asked yourself…why do people need to urinate so much at night time? Here’s a simple answer - gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down, the lower body levels with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the waste from the body because it is a lot easier.
Did you know that drinking water at certain times maximizes its effectiveness on the body?
Here are the correct times to drink water:
2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
In addition to helping the heart, water at bedtime will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. Drinking plenty of good water often completely eliminates this problem.
High Blood Pressure and Water
According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, the author of You’re Not Sick, You Are Thirsty, he states that “the most common and frequent reason for hypertension is a gradually established dehydration in the body. This type of hypertension is labeled “essential hypertension”. A large number of people in this group receive some form of medication to deal with this dehydration signal in the body. Until they learn about the relationship of this condition to their insufficient water intake, or a wrong choice of fluid intake, they will have to continue taking pharmaceutical products for the rest of their shortened lives. Chronic dehydration kills prematurely and painfully.”
Dr. Batmanghelidj goes on to explain how blood pressure rises in the body.
“In water loss from the body - rather, lack of sufficient water intake – 66% of the deficit is reflected on the volume of water held in some cells of the body (plum-like cells become prune-like); 26% is reflected in the fluid environment outside the cells; and only 8% of the deficit is imposed on the volume held in the blood circulation. The circulatory system adapts to its 8% loss by shrinking in capacity. Initially, peripheral capillaries close down, and eventually, the larger vessels tighten their walls to keep the blood vessels full. This tightening leads to a measurable rise in tension in the arteries. This is called hypertension. If the blood vessels did not tighten on the void, gases would separate from the blood and fill the space, causing gas locks.” This vascular adaptation to the amount of water the system carries is one of the most advanced designs in the human body.
How Ionized Alkaline Water Can Protect Your Heart
Dr. Batmanghelidj also talks about how dehydration is the root cause of excess cholesterol in the body. He explains how cholesterol adheres to the arteries as a defense mechanism to protect the blood vessels from being damaged by the thickened blood due to chronic dehydration. This shortage of water causes a chain reaction from increased cholesterol to increased risk of stroke and many other ailments that he describes in his book.
In conclusion, drinking plenty of good water is essential to heart health. Dr. Horst Filtzer, Vascular Surgeon MD, Endorses Kangen Water. He states that as he investigated Ionized Water and as he investigated the concept of alkalinization of the body, he became more and more convinced that this is the product that is of an absolute value to all mankind. Kangen Water provides many health benefits and should be used in all the households because it is clearly superior form to any water I have personally encountered.
