Our bodies need sufficient amounts of water in order to adequately perform numerous vital functions. However, even less than one in five people drinks enough water.
This article will reveal the results of n experiment that examines the effects of water on our body and health.
The 42- year old mother of two children, Sarah Smith from the UK, was not consuming enough water as well. However, she suffered from numerous health issues, including frequent headaches, and poor digestion.
Therefore, she consulted medical professionals in order to solve her problems, and she was advised to increase her intake of water as a solution to both her issues.
Hence, she was determined to try this method, but also decided to document the whole process. So, her aim was to drink 3 liters of water a day for a month and see if this will be beneficial for her health.
She decided to document and photograph what happened in a self-imposed experiment whereby she would drink 3 liters, just over 5 pints, of water per day, every day for an entire month and see if she could feel any benefits.
She divided the amount of water she planned to consume in a big jug of water in the morning, another jug of water in the afternoon and the last one in the evening.
At the beginning of her experiment, Sarah looked at her face and noted “I am 42, but have to admit I look more like 52 in this picture, which is shocking.
There are dark shadows under and around my eyes, which make me look exhausted, a profusion of wrinkles and strange reddish blotches, and my skin lacks any lustre. It looks dead….even my lips look shrivelled.”
At the end of the FIRST WEEK she had already noticed that her bowel function was improved and her urine was virtually clear as the water was flushing out her previously dehydrated poorly functioning kidneys. She noticed sudden skin breakouts, which were a result of the toxins being eliminated from throughout her body. However her headaches were already gone and her previous joint stiffness first thing in the morning was vastly improved. Water is vital for lubricating the joints.
WEEK TWO saw an improvement in her skin tone and general complexion although she noted that her eyes were still wrinkled but said “they look less crepey and shadowy than before”. She also had a visibly flatter stomach and her smart husband paid her the ultimate compliment by noting that her cellulite had vanished! Significantly she had another week headache free.
On to WEEK THREE when Sarah was happy to find that her eye wrinkles and dark circles had all but disappeared and her skin was plumper and healthier looking. She noted that she was actually eating less by this stage as she had fallen into the common trap of reading signals from her stomach as being hunger pangs whereas they were actually thirst pangs. Research has shown that 37 per cent of people actually mistake thirst signals for hunger signals. The plentiful water had now stopped her from continually falling into that unhealthy trap.
Moreover, there was also a significant improvement in her bowel movement. Additionally, she found that she has several sudden skin breakouts, but they were also caused by the detoxification of toxins that was actually occurring in her entire body.
She experienced no headaches or the stiffness in her joints was greatly reduced. This is due to the fact that water acts as a lubricant for our joints.
To those already of you already converted to drinking enough water these results will merely confirm what you already know, but to anyone who is guilty of not doing so, will this persuade you to try this for yourself ?
