Dehydration – The Lack of Cellular Water
Did you know that 50-75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated …and that many of those individuals are drinking the suggested 8 glasses of water a day? It’s true. That’s because as we age, the water in our bodies is less mobile – less able to move within the cells.
Dehydration is a condition that occurs when a person loses more fluid than they take in. However, the problem is not just a lack of water, it is a lack of cellular water! If the water we drink is unable to get into the cells, we can drink water all day long and still be dehydrated.
When there is insufficient water inside the cells, every function suffers and the body must operate from a level of “crisis management.” This has been well documented from the medical perspective, by Dr. Batmanghelidj in his book, Water: for Health, for Healing, for Life – Your’e Not Sick, You’re Thirsty. With a lack of cellular water, organs must compete for vital fluids; balance (homeostasis) gives way to disharmony and disease.
Nothing can happen without water. It is required for every metabolic process. Think about the amount of water that leaves our bodies every day. Copious amounts of water are used to digest food and eliminate wastes. Water from the kidneys neutralizes acidic wastes and sends them out in the urine. Water leaves during respiration. Water is continually being moved through the skin to moderate temperature and flush the tissues of the skin. And when water is lacking inside the cells, our organs do not function properly; toxins are allowed to build up.
Most diseases can be traced to dehydration. In fact, dehydration is the number one cause of stress in the human body. Many scientists believe it is the #1 cause of death. Common signs of dehydration that are often ignored include: dark urine, afternoon fatigue, heartburn, dry skin, acne, headaches and constipation. Dehydration has also been linked with angina pain, asthma, colitis, diabetes, peptic ulcer pain, high blood pressure, low back pain, high blood cholesterol – even aging.
As we age, the amount of water inside our cells decreases. Our cells actually begin to shrink and stiffen – their ability to expand and contract is reduced. As a result, nutrients, and oxygen are not efficiently exchanged at the cell membrane and waste products are not efficiently removed. What we need is the ability to get water back into our cells, where it counts – and that’s where hexagonal water can make a big difference.
While some water is available from the food we eat, the majority of the water we use on a regular basis must be provided by drinking water. Smaller, more organized, hexagonal units enter the cells rapidly providing superior hydration with a subsequent effect on nutrient absorption, waste removal, metabolism, immune function, and overall health.
Drinking hexagonal water is one of the easiest ways to overcome chronic dehydration and to protect your body from disease and premature aging. When individuals consume hexagonal water, the cellular water environment improves, contributing to enhanced energy and improved cellular efficiency.
What is Hexagonal Water?
Although water can form various structures, depending on how the hydrogen-bonded molecules connect together, recent research shows that biological organisms prefer hexagonal (six-sided) ring-structured water. This hexagonal water, with its six individual molecules of water, is more rapidly absorbed by our cells. Most tap water and some of the popular bottled waters are pentagonal (five-sided) which has larger water clusters. Research shows that these structures are too large for the body to absorb quickly. The body must restructure the water to make it useable, a time consuming and energy consuming process. But, the regular consumption of hexagonal water has these positive benefits:
Enhances metabolic efficiency
Improves nutrient absorption
Supports immune functions
Improves hydration of the cells
Enhances waste removal from cells
Improves cellular communication
Hexagonal Water and Calcium
Research also shows that Hexagonal water (Kangen Water) in the body has an affinity for calcium in the body, and we could say it resonates with it. Thereby the possibility of losing calcium from the cellular make-up decreases when there is a sufficient amount of Hexagonal water.
In a similar manner, Hexagonal water resonates with the major amino acids responsible for cell structure. The joint presence of Hexagonal water and structure making amino acids helps to maintain cellular integrity and function throughout the body.
“Regarding osteoporosis, it is difficult to expect significant improvement just by adding calcium alone. Calcium supplementation often results in an increase in calcium discharge from the body – like pouring water into a container with no bottom. Rather, it is necessary to consume hexagonal water along with calcium so it can be used more efficiently at the cellular level.” – Dr. Jhon
Stress and Hexagonal Water
When the body is under stress and the immune system is weak, it has a hard time overcoming the latest virus or bug going around.
Stresses can be environmental, chemical, emotional or any combination of these. They weaken the immune system by destroying the Hexagonal structure of water and changing it to Pentagonal water, which is not recommended for the body. This opens the door for sickness and disease including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and all autoimmune diseases. Pentagonal water is found in tap water or bottled water. Hexagonal water is easily made by a water ionizer such as the Enagic water generator.
Tests have shown that providing cells with hexagonal water improves immune function and slows down the proliferation of cancer cells.
Drinking Hexagonal Water (Kangen Water)
Dr. Jhon further states: “Hexagonal water – comprised of small molecular units or ring-shaped clusters – moves easily within the cellular matrix of the body, helping with nutrient absorption and waste removal. It aids metabolic processes, supports the immune system, contributes to lasting vitality and acts as a carrier of dissolved oxygen. It can provide alkaline minerals to the body and it helps in the more efficient removal of acidic wastes. It supports long life and freedom from disease.”
