When you read any type of health blog, the number one recommendation is drink more water. There is a good reason for this too. Did you know our bodies are made up of 60% H2O? Throughout the day you lose some of that percentage due to breathing, perspiration, and urination. By drinking water, you are restoring the water lost throughout the day. Staying hydrated also helps remove toxins from your body and helps maintain your kidneys and digestive system.
After an adjustment, your body may go through some side affects. Becoming stiff and sore are common results.. Your adjustment is pushing toxins from your joints and if you don’t drink enough water, these toxins tend to linger. When you dhydrate afterwards, this helps flush your body of toxins and will actually help keep you adjusted longer.
Keeping your body healthy is very important. Water helps flush the body of harmful toxins and helps maintain organs, muscles, and skin. Keeping your body hydrated will help prevent injury or illness as well.
Whether you are an athlete, workout, or do any physical activity, keeping your body hydrated will help keep you moving. If you spend a lot of time outside, drinking water can actually help prevent sunburn and heat exhaustion.
The three main things to keeping our bodies healthy and functioning are: Air, Food, and Water. If you don’t drink enough water, you are not allowing your body to rejuvenate itself.
