A recent study of the correlation between dehydration and stroke severity* confirms what water advocate and radio host Sharon Kleyne has been saying for decades.† Kleyne believes that dehydration – lack of sufficient water in the body – is extremely widespread and could affect as much as 90 percent of the US population. Kleyne further believes that research will eventually show that dehydration is a factor in nearly all disease, including aging and stroke.
The syndicated radio show, hosted by Sharon Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, a global research and technology center founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere and dehydration. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry and dehydrated skin and eyes.
The reason dehydration has such a far reaching impact on the human body and health, Kleyne explains, is that every process, structure and cell of the body requires water to function properly. The body is usually estimated to be 60 to 70 percent water by volume. When calculated by number of molecules rather than volume, says Kleyne, the body is probably 99 percent water (since water molecules are very small). Like the Earth, the body is a water recycling machine that to survive, must constantly eliminates used water and constantly replaces it with new water.
The body obtains water, according to Kleyne, from drinking via the stomach, and by absorption of water vapor from the atmosphere through the skin, lungs and eyes.
Dehydration weakens every part of the body that requires water, which is every part of the body, including bones and teeth, Kleyne explains. Dehydration especially weakens the immune system, muscles and the cardiovascular system. Dehydration can lead to heart and kidney disorders, stroke, lowered disease resistance and reduced effectiveness of medication. Severe dehydration can be fatal. .
Nearly everyone, Kleyne believes, is slightly dehydrated. With climate change, air pollution, increasing global drought and changes in atmospheric water vapor, the incidence and severity of dehydration is increasing worldwide. The most common risk factors for stroke – age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, alcohol and drug use, diabetes, inactivity, obesity, poor diet and high stress – are also common risk factors for dehydration.
The elderly are at high risk for dehydration, says Kleyne, in part because as humans age, their thirst reflex diminishes. The elderly also tend to consume large amounts of medication, which is often dehydrating. Older individuals sometime avoid drinking at night so they won’t have to get up to relieve themselves.
Dehydration symptoms, according to Kleyne, include loss of appetite, thirst, dry mouth, headache, dry skin and eyes, low urine production, fatigue, lethargy, irritability and depression.
Losing weight in a fast manner is possible, but it will be a tough road to travel. This is because you probably have certain longstanding habits that you have to change if you want to lose weight. Losing weight quickly, however, is possible if you are committed to it, and in this article we’ll be looking at some ways to accomplish this.
One thing to avoid when losing weight quickly is your goal is starving yourself. While it’s true that fasting is the direct opposition to eating too much, starving will never help you lose weight quickly. What the low calorie diet advocates don’t tell you is that any weight loss you do achieve is likely to come back in full force in a couple of months. The reason this always happens is because your body needs certain nutrients and if you keep it from what it needs, it will get those nutrients eventually. That’s not to mention that if you continue a starvation diet for a long time, it’s really bad for your health. So, while losing weight fast requires you to eat less, you have to make sure you aren’t starving yourself or not meeting your nutritional requirements.
One thing that you have to understand is that getting rid of weight quickly or even slowly will not be possible without exercising. The number one way to get rid of calories is with aerobic exercises like running, jogging, biking, swimming or a sport that you enjoy like tennis or a different racket sport. You can also go to dance or aerobic classes at the gym. The main point is that in order to lose weight fast, you have to decrease your calories and get more exercise so you can burn calories.
Most people find that the hardest part about losing weight quickly is dealing with those times when you are emotional and you want to feed your face with comfort food. That’s why, if you suffer from stress, anxiety or depression, or you have an eating disorder, you must confront those demons first, and then start eating and exercising properly if you ever hope to reach your weight loss goals. If you suffer from any of the above disorders, then you should try counseling, hypnotism, meditation or psychotherapy for maximum results. Quick weight loss is possible, but you must deal with the underlying problems if you hope for that weight loss to be permanent.
Losing weight quickly is possible, but it’s not something that will happen by itself. You have to pay attention to all that you consume and be certain that you get an adequate amount of exercise. Even if you want to see a quick outcome, the most important thing is to start new habits that you can always follow. If you don’t forget the things that we have examined in this article, losing weight fast will be a breeze for you.
