Oxygenation & Hydration Is Of Greater Importance Than Food & Nutrition
In the natural health arena, a lot of emphasis is being placed on food, nutrition, supplementation and juicing, at the expense of more important aspects of health which are breathing and hydration.
The Importance Of Breathing Natural Fresh Air
The breath is so vitally important. We breathe about 20,000 times a day. About 11,000 litres of air pass through our airways every single day. Brain cells are extremely sensitive to air deprivation and can begin to die within five minutes after air supply has been cut off. Good quality air is therefore of utmost important for the health of the entire body. The practice of deep rhythmic and diaphragmatic breathing in yoga, tai chi and other eastern meditational arts are foundational to a high level of spiritual and holistic health.
The power of the breath lies in its ability to increase the body’s electrical force or chi (汽) due to optimal oxygenation. In the Chinese vernacular, the enhancement of chi leads to increased life force. The result is peak cellular communication, superb physical health, increased mental capacity, a calm spirit and an integrated personality. Habitual deep breathing strengthens the immune system, keeps diseases at bay and promotes youthfulness and longevity. The benefits of good breathing supersede that of dietary nutrition. The effects of breathing good air is more immediate than that of eating good food. Hence it is important that we live in an environment of good quality air.
What Is Good Quality Air?
Nature’s fresh, healthy air is high in negative ions. Negative air ions are air molecules that carry a negative electrical charge. Fresh air that is rich in negative ions can be found in natural environments such as waterfall areas, seaside, forests and certain mountainous areas. Breathing air full of negative ions produces numerous positive biological effects including mental alertness, a strong immune system, optimism, improved respiratory function, reduction in symptoms of allergies, such as asthma and sinusitis as well as improved sleep. Negative ions also purify the air of bacteria, germs and other microscopic pollutants including the notorious PM2.5 which are dangerous health threats.
How To Create A Healthy Indoor Environment
Our indoor environment is often rife with all kinds of particulate and chemical pollutants. It is also often depleted of natural air ions that are essential for the well being of the family. By restoring and maintaining a healthy level of air ions in the home, we can significantly reduce the incidences of unpleasant symptoms. Air ions are produced in nature through various natural processes including
- the shearing force of water through air, such as falling rain or water sprays in waterfalls and fountains,
- the process of transpiration in plants
- the natural breakdown of radioactive substances on the earth’s crust.
The Following are some ways To create a healthy indoor environment:
- install indoor plants
- install water fountains
- avoid using chemical cleaners and detergents
- ventilate by opening windows to let in fresh air
- install a good air ionizer to generate healthy air ions continuously
The Importance Of Drinking Natural Mineral Water
Besides optimal oxygenation, optimal hydration is great preventive medicine. Water is the basis of all life. It gives and sustains life. Not only does water give life, it is a powerful cleanser. It detoxifies the body by cleaning out accumulated toxins and waste. Your body is a capsule of living water. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that delivers nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that receive oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water. The solid matter of our body cannot function without water. Water regulates all functions of the body.
Many serious disease symptoms are the results of prolonged water shortage within the body. Dr Batmanghelidj, a renowned expert on water consumption and the states of human health, is a clinician who treats his patients with natural protocols using water as a main component. His books and reports document hundreds of cases of people getting well from all kinds of degenerative diseases following his recommendations on water consumption.
Apparently, many of our health problems are caused by not drinking enough water. As a guide, Dr. Batmanghelidj recommends that a person takes in half of his body weight in ounces of water each day. A 60 pound child will need about 30 ounce of water a day to maintain optimal hydration. His advice is to drink enough water daily to achieve colorless urine.
What Is Good Quality Water?
The best drinking water that will support life to its fullest is natural spring water. Good spring water contains the full spectrum of dissolved minerals that are essential for the maintenance of life. Dissolved minerals being ionic in nature, helps conduct energy and maintain the body’s electrolytic balance. Spring water is far superior to the man-made sports drinks or electrolyte solutions intended to re-establish balance following exercise or sickness.
Tap water is an inferior water choice. Not only is tap water tainted with water treatment additives such as chlorine, chloramines and fluorides, all known to have detrimental effects on human health, it does not supply all the essential and trace minerals that the body needs.
How To Make Your Own Natural Life Giving Healing Mineral Water
Our water today is sicker than in any other time in human history. Hidden contaminants in our drinking water will accumulate in our body, and cause havoc to our organs and nervous system over time. As many of us do not live near healing springs that supply healthy mineral water, there are many devices designed to purify water from the tap.
However the best way to purify water is to employ nature’s water purification method. Natural ionic minerals similar to that found in springs can effectively neutralize water contaminants as well as mineralize the water. The product Adya Clarity is a special extract that not only supplies necessary ionic minerals to the water, but has the innate and natural ability to structure and purify water for drinking and bathing. This is the product we recommend for the home.
By replenishing necessary negative ions to the air we breathe and ionic minerals to our drinking water, we are setting homes up for many good days of vibrant family health and happiness.
