water cures all

Dehydration is a vastly growing problem not just in Countries where water is scarce but here in the UK and other countries around the world.

When we are brought up in a world where a can of carbonated juice is even seen in a baby's pram, and I don't just mean in the bottle holder (which usually hosts a can of coke or Irn bru for the Mother) no I mean in the baby's hand, it's time to worry. the aspartame in these drinks is really dangerous. The diet coke for example is marketed as no sugar however it is stuffed full of caffeine.

When people drink too much alcohol they are constantly dehydrated. This then carries on even although they may stop drinking alcohol. Usually the alcohol will be replaced with coffee, Irn bru, or coke, which of course dehydrates them even more.

When you are dehydrated you not only tend not to drink water, but to crave chocolate and sparkling drinks (more caffeine) and so the cycle goes on and on and on. Result of this are

  • no nutrients
  • overload on caffeine
  • overweight.

When you get cravings for SOMETHING we think "What is it I want" - we usually need something emotional to smooth over the feeling but end up eating chocolate or drinking fizzy drinks. However when we think "What is it I want?" we should realise we are dehydrated and really what we want is

W A T E R !

Sore heads are caused by dehydration - DRINK WATER

I B S is aggravated by caffeine - DRINK WATER

Stress is a manifestation of sugar or and caffeine - DRINK WATER

Tomorrow I'm going to replace two cups of coffee or tea with.............water

Then the next day I'm going to cut the coffee out altogether because of the chemicals and although it's caffeine free, I realise that even the de-caf still has a small amount of caffeine in the de-caf.

This describes all the benefits of drinking water and all the wrong signals our body gives us when we are dehydrated

      I definitely don't drink enough water and I do drink way too much coffee. Great reminders!
