The Second Law of Health – Drink
The year of 2007 was a very interesting weather year in Utah. We were about one month ahead of the normal weather pattern. The snow pack melted a month ahead of normal, the heat of July was here in June, and the fire tankers were flying overhead sooner than normal. With all that heat it was very important to make sure we were drinking enough water.
I recommend you drink one-half your body weight in ounces of water each day. That means if you weigh 160 lbs. you would drink 80 ounces per day. Remember you are sweating much more and losing much more fluid in the summer than you do in the colder months. You are also losing more minerals in your sweat. With the loss of minerals, heat stroke is much more likely. Dehydration can also occur during illness where vomiting, diarrhea and fever are present.
Our bodies derive minerals from fruit and vegetables, mostly from green leafy vegetables, so eat lots of salads. Another source of minerals is from supplementation. BioNativus is a company that harvests wonderful minerals from the Great Salt Lake. This awesome body of water holds many keys to health. The Great Salt Lake receives its water from 35,000 square miles of the most mineral rich dense land in the world. All 72 minerals and noble gasses are found in this water. What’s interesting is that these minerals are highly electrically charged due to being hit by lightening from the electrical storms of the summer. This charge helps with the absorption of the minerals into your cells.
Don’t dry up and blow away during the summer and dehydrate in the winter with the heater on!! Stay well hydrated and add minerals to your water. The minerals come in a plain liquid concentrate, or they can be added to the water with a tasty flavored concentrated drink mix.
