"And David said with longing, 'Oh, that someone would give me drink of water from the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!" (1 Chronicles 11:17)
WATER - A Natural Remedy For Sound Body And Mind
HOPPG Family - what do you really know about WATER and are you drinking enough of this miracle elixir created by God?
One of the true and most "unsung heroes" in the field of natural cures and even in medicine is something that we see and use everyday - WATER! We hear doctors speak about it and read articles about it and even occasionally see a televised report on the absolute benefits of it to our health. It has even become one of the biggest purchased items on our grocery list. But how much do we really know about?
Before you read further, just take a look at some meanings of the word: Elixir: (1) an alchemical prepration supposed to be capable of prolonging life indefinitely - also known as the "Elixir of Life"; (2) anything that purports to be a sovereign remedy; panacea; (3) to cure diseases and prolong life.
Here is a list of just a few positive impacts that Water can bring to your mind and body:
1. Heart Disease and Stroke – Water is essential to help prevent clogging of arteries in the heart and brain.
2. Infection – Water may increase the efficiency of the immune system to combat infection and cancer cells.
3. Depression – Water helps the body naturally replenish the supply of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
4. Sleep Disorder – Water is needed for the production of natural sleep regulator: melatonin.
5. Lack of Energy – Water generates electrical and magnetic energy in every body cell providing a natural power boost.
6. Addiction – Water can help eliminate addictive urges for caffeine, alcohol and some drugs.
7. Osteoporosis – Water is an aid to strong bone formation.
8. Leukemia and Lymphoma – Water normalizes the blood malfunctioning and helps in the prevention of many forms of cancer.
9. Attention Deficit Disorder – A well-hydrated brain is continually energized to imprint new information in its memory banks.
10. Muscle Spasm - Water increases the oxygen flow in blood which aids in muscle elasticity.
What has been discovered for the first time in the history of modern science based medicine, is the way to prevent and cure the degenerative disease of human body, simply and naturally with water. In short, prevent diseases by drinking water.
A quick note to our parents: children are constantly and naturally dehydrated. A great deal of water is used in the processes of cell expansion and division. 75 per cent of each cell is water. The body of a growing child constantly needs and calls for water, otherwise, growth would not be possible. If the natural call of the body for water is satisfied by manufactured chemical containing fluid and sugar-containing drinks, health, growth and development events that water itself initiates may not take place efficiently and crisis events such as asthma and allergies may occur.
There are so many more important reasons we could discuss for drinking this wonderful fluid created by God for us. Take a moment and explore other resources of the benefits of water to the human mind and body. It's very interesting to note also that our spiritual life is sustained by the "water of life" - God's word. Notice what the Psalmist David wrote by inspiration of the Holy Spirit of this Water in Psalm 1: 1-3:
1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
Drink natural water regularly, daily, and in normal quantity - about 8-10 glasses daily.
Read God's Word regularly, daily, meditating on it day and night
In both cases, you will see significant difference in your physical and spiritual life!
Good Health To You!!
