💧💧💧If Smart water were actually smart…Then why did it get bottled? 😂

Updated: Jan 4

It's the beginning of a new year. Most of us have probably overdone it. We need to get back on track - so let's talk about water!💧


I wanted to write this general guide because, we always seem to be saying “drink water, drink water, drink water!” But I think sometimes we really need to have a visual understanding to help us want to make those changes.




Water is a fundamental need for life.  We cannot live without it.


Water - or H20 - is made up from 2 hydrogen molecules and a single oxygen molecule. It is one of the few elements that ca change state, depending on the temperature. As steam, it is so hot it will burn and kill bacteria. As ice it can also burn as well as reduce pain and inflammation. In liquid form it will keep you clean and rehydrate you.



You can’t survive without water.



The plant is about 71% water. The oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. The amount of water on the planet never changes. It just changes state. Hence why oceans are rising. It’s changing from ice to liquid form. Also quite amazing.



We are 90% water. The brain and heart are about 73% water. The lungs are about 83% water. During a massage your body might have been drained of lymphatic waste and toxins which may result in being thirsty and the water will help flush all the waste and toxins away.  Water will help the detoxifying process and to rehydrate your body. 



All this water makes us susceptible to the cycles of the moon that helps push the flow of water around the earth.



If you really want to properly rehydrate your body, it will take a whole year to do so. Every cell, atom and molecule needs to be filled. You are consistently using and loosing water. Substances such as alcohol, coffee, tea and fizzy drinks will also help dehydrate you.



Most people who don’t drink water complain that if they do start, they keep going to the toilet, and therefor it’s better for them not to drink it. It’s true that when you first start drinking water this happenings. However over time it will stop. You body is adjusting to suddenly having water. So the process of absorbing it needs to change. 



Firstly, it is now running through all your organs. Cleaning them In the process. Your Kidneys especially love this, As it’s them that are filtering the blood and excreting waste. The small intestines and colon, where the primary absorption takes place will probably need cleaning as waste can get stuck here for long lengths of time when the is not enough fluid to help move it forward. The walls become clogged and absorption is difficult. 



To help this, start your day by drinking warm or room temperature water first thing in the morning. Water is the only substance that takes zero time to move from the Stomach to the small intestines. However, if it is cold, the Stomach needs to waste time and energy warming it up before it can enter the small intestines water. Therefor the body is not a fan of cold water.  




After waking your gut up with water, you can juice foods such as celery, cucumber, spinach, fennel, lemon, ginger, an apple, coriander. Play around with different ideas and combinations. It’s better to do this fresh and drink it straight away. You can add grasses and cayenne pepper to it if you like. 



It’s important to remember that you are not doing it as a food supplement or diet. You are releasing the chemicals within the plant as the fibre is broken down, this will help clean the colon and start the rehydration process for the day. They are also anti-inflammatory and will aid the accessory organs such as the Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas, etc. Then when you eat your foods for fibre, it will be easier to digest and absorb. 



And who said you need to drink a gallon per day! Sip your water through the day. Consistency is key.



Your muscle and fascia are also greedy for water. Especially your fascia. It needs to be well oiled for movement. It will also reduce pain. To do this, every cell must absorb the water. So how do we ensure that?



Salt is really important for helping the Kidneys maintain blood pressure. It is also really important for the absorption of water.


But not just any old salt. It must be real salt. Out of the of the 102 minerals that we need to maintain the chemical process of our body - real salt has 84 and Irish Sea Moss has 92. Table salt and the salt used in processed food has zero minerals. It’s why we are warned against it and thats why we should avoid it.


Salt such as Celtic Sea Salt not only has the minerals we need, but also 3 different types of magnesium. The magnesium pulls the H20 into the cell. Helping us rehydrate faster and with consistency. If you put a couple of crystals on your tongue and then drink your room temperature water, you will help speed up the process of rehydration. You only need to do this once or twice a day to start the process. 



Of course the quality of water you drink is also really important. Filtering is about more than making it taste good. Removing metals and chemicals that are in our drinking water is key. Even bottled mineral waters are not always what they claim to be.



You will improve your skin, organs, brain, movement, joints and mood - everything - with water. Consistency is key. 



Habits need time to develop. Make it easy for yourself. If you can do it throughout January - you will probably get to the end of the year. If you can cut out anything that dehydrates you, you will do it better and faster. 



And remember, using your Diaphragm correctly also helps rehydration by pumping a moving fluid. Especially the Lymph.



You have nothing to loose and everything to gain by drinking good water. You see how countries starve without it. Don’t starve your own home. The body you reside in. 



In the meantime - Why couldn’t the fish watch YouTube? 🐟

He couldn’t stream the video! 💦💦💦💦💦



Be kind to yourself, have a wonderful year and I look forward to treating you! 🎉🎉🎉
