Have you ever exhaled on a mirror and noticed the temporary fog you created.
The moisture is the result of the millions of tiny droplets of water that
are carried out of our lungs in every breath.
Result? Every breath we take dehydrates us a little more. Ever wonder why when
you awake after a nights sleep, you are dry and pasty? You have been dehydrating
all night! You might as well have run a marathon.
Some time in the past someone said, “the AVERAGE person exhales anywhere
from 48 to 64 ounces of water a day (about 1 to 1 1/3rd liters) just breathing.” That
statement is almost wholly inaccurate.
The amount of water we will exhale a day is dependant on a number of things:
1) Climate (the dryer or hotter, the more water
2) Physical activity (the more active, the more
3) Diet (processed foods in the diet, the more
water needed to digest them).
4) Use of Caffeine or any diuretics (diuretics
cause your body to expel water thru urine).
5) Stress (stress causes the liver to work harder.
The liver runs on water like a washing machine to cleanse and purify your system).
There is a patently false “old wives tale” known by many that for
every cup of coffee, you need 3 cups of water. Hog wash! Look at 1-5 above and
see how that statement is foolishly wrong.
Most of us know little about how much water they need. There are obvious symptoms
of thirst such as:
Smacking of the lips
Therefore, if you follow your symptoms and drink water when you are thirsty and
don't drink it, when you are not thirsty, you will be far better off.
If you are so inclined, experiment and try drinking 200 ounces of water in a
day (or more) and see what happens. I've done it.
Remember, water is the life blood or oil of the body. The body will not run without
it. Eliminate what is causing you to lose fluid (water) and you will feel the
diffrence. All of this is covered in my book.
If you get confused and are afraid to error, error on the too much water side
of things rather than not enough. Then read, Diagnostic Face Reading and the
