Water's Role in the Human Body
This is the info my doctor offered about drinking water. Please remember that it must be pure, filtered or RO-water.

Water regulates ALL the functions in the human body. Just a few of the most important functions include the following:

  • The flow of blood and lymph through the body
  • The functioning of our brains
  • The cushioning and regulation of organs
  • The transfer and absorption of nutrients into cells and tissues
  • The removal of waste out of the cells
  • The movement of nerve impulses through the nervous system
  • The balance of hormones
  • The regulation of body temperature
  • The lubrication and cushioning of joints
  • Specific Health Benefits of Drinking Water
  • As far as I am concerned, EVERY health condition, illness and disease is affected by water, as explained above.
Drinking enough pure water has been shown to help the body heal itself from many sicknesses, including:
  • General pain and inflammation in muscles and joints
  • Tension headaches and migraines
