People who have lived for many years without proper water intake are the most likely to succumb to the build-up of toxins in the body. Chronic disease is always accompanied by dehydration.
The longer a person lives on a low water ration and/or on a high ration of stimulating beverages or foods, the more severe and long lasting is the toxicity crisis.
Heart disease, obesity, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, stomach ulcers, hypertension, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and many other chronic forms of disease are precipitated by years of body drought.
Infectious agents such as bacteria and viruses cannot thrive in a well-hydrated body. Drinking enough water is therefore one of the most important preventives for any disease.
People who do not drink enough water deplete their body’s water reserves through overstimulation. For a period of time, this gradually lowers the ratio of the volume of water that exists inside the cells to the ratio of volume of water that is found outside the cells with in the body.
Under dehydrated conditions, the cells may lose up to 28% or more of their water volume. This certainly undermines all cellular activities, whether they occur in skin cells, stomach cells, liver cells, kidney cells or heart cells.
Whenever there is cellular dehydration, metabolic waste products are retained, causing symptoms that resemble disease but in truth are nothing but signs of disturbed water metabolism.
Since more and more water begins to accumulate outside the cells, the dehydration may not be apparent to the afflicted person; he may in fact notice that he retains water, leading to swelling of his legs, feet, arms and face.
Also his kidneys may begin to hold on to water, markedly reducing urinary secretion and causing retention of harmful waste material.
Even the enzymes and proteins living in the dehydrated cells become so inefficient that they are no longer able to recognize the dehydrated state of the body; they fail to set off the “thirst alarm.
Clementine Uwamariya 23, consulted her doctor to find relief for a painful condition of gallbladder disease. Her skin was dark gray, indicating a high concentration of toxins in her liver and throughout her body.
Seeing how dehydrated (and swollen) her body was, she was offered a glass of water. She said: “I never drink water, it makes me sick” we told her that her natural thirst signals no longer worked because of cellular dehydration and that without drinking water her body could not return to balance.
Any water she would drink would instantly be used to remove some of the toxins lurking in her stomach, giving rise to nausea.
In her case, any other therapy than drinking water would have been a waste of time and money.
A dehydrated person may also suffer from lack of energy. Due to the shortage of water inside the cell the normal osmotic flow of water through the cell membrane becomes disrupted or severely disturbed.
