Water therapy is literally the therapy or relief the body receives from the daily consumption of water instead of medication. 65% of the human body is composed of water. It seems an intelligent choice to replenish the water that is lost through out the day with new refreshing water yet many people barely replenish half of the water lost. Many people count the bottles of soda or juice as water substitute but the truth is they are poor substitutes. So many diseases and issues we deal with are due to poor diet so why not add water to your diet as water is an essential element of your body's make-up.

Drinking water does not require expert help or expert supervision. Water therapy is easy and offers wonderful benefits. Water has the ability to cleanse your body of toxins and unwanted waste through urine and sweat. Healthy water consumption can help maintain the body's temperature, healthy glowing skin and it helps the body expel unwanted waste. Water consumption can help a vast variety of disease for example: anemia, rheumatism, general paralysis, obesity, arthritis...

Most people are familiar with the recommendation of "6-8 glasses of water daily" but the better route to follow is "listen to your body's needs". 6-8 glasses of water is not the magic number of glasses for everyone, the amount of water you need is relative to the size of you body and how much water you loose daily. Listening to your body is the key to staying hydrated. Often people are too busy to remember to drink water so here are a few tips that can act as reminders:

  1. Take a bottle. Always carry a bottle of water with you so when your thirst calls you can immediately replenish your body's water source.
  2. Add a little flavour. So many people complain that water is too plain. If you relate to this add a splash of lemon or lime to it.
  3. Have a glass of water by you bed. Often people get thirsty during the night or first thing in the morning if you have a glass right there you are more likely to drink it and hydrate your body.
  4. Always pair your meal with a glass of sparking water. Water is a great complement to any meal and it helps feed you appetite.
  5. Use a filter. Some people dislike the metallic taste that water can have, a water filter or bottled water will hydrate your body without the metallic taste.

It is essential to understand that drinking too much water can have some unpleasant side effects. Your body is created to only absorb the water that it has lost. By drinking an excessive amount of water could lead to hyperhydration or water poisoning which can trigger heart failure. So, listening to your body is essential. If you are thirsty it is because your body needs and craves hydration but if you are trying to chug down 10 of more glasses of water each day you might want to reconsider listening to your body's needs and use that as your water gauge.
