Think Like A Fish
Think of your surroundings as if it were a fish bowl. If the water in this fish bowl is not frequently changed, metabolic waste and stale food builds up eventually killing the fish. When water is lacking, detoxification is one of the functions first put on hold. Similar to the fish bowl, your body ends up building up toxins and cellular waste. In this analogy, your organs are the fish and your body, the fish bowl in which they live.
All the detoxification pathways in the body require water – this combination of colon, kidney, liver, bladder, skin, lungs and lymphatic system. When water is not available in sufficient amounts, these wastes accumulate around your cells and becomes the environment in which they live in. They become sluggish and unhealthy. However, the body is both strong and smart. It can compensate for a time.
Under these stresses, it will find a place it can store toxicity where it won’t interfere in critical life processes. Where does it store these? In the fatty tissue, in your joints, and as deposits in your blood vessels. In summary, your body may survive but over the long term, it may not thrive. It will also be hamstrung by these stressors.
Drinking plenty of good quality water is akin to changing the water in the fish bowl. As long as you need to drink water, you might as well get the best water you can get. More specifically, ionised alkaline structured water is recognised as professionals around the World as the best water.
If the fish in the fish bowl got sick from this build up of metabolites, would you try to feed the fish a pill to make it better or would you change the water in the fish bowl?
