Appreciating the intrinsic ingredient of life -- Water (3)

To further contrast the importance of water,
we may look into some of real life consequences of dehydration:

- lethargy  
* compromised metabolic rate when water is lacking

- forgetfulness / lack of focus 
* dissociation between shrinking brain/nerve cells upon dehydration

- headache / migraine
* due to the lack of blood flow (poor fluidity of blood)

- constipation
* under-moisturisation of the gut and stools

- joint aches / hunch back
* compromised hydraulic force in joint cartilages

- allergies
* poor immunological/hormonal signal transduction

- high blood pressure
* thickening of blood due to lack of water content

The correlation
between water and some of the health problems above
may be a bit far fetch to some of us,
because we did not truly understand
the intrinsic role of water.

If we analyse carefully,
many of our health problems could be so easily avoided
by just drinking enough water every day.

-- There may be more than one causes to
the above mentioned health conditions (ie not just due to dehydration),
but at least we should try out the cheapest and safest remedy (ie water)
before we pay doctor a visit ;)

Continue to hydrate :P
