• Water is So Important

Water Blood and Health,
Let's first consider tap water. We certainly cannot drink untreated water directly from rivers and lakes that have been contaminated by drains and industrial waste. We have to first remove harmful impurities. Great efforts are laboriously made to remove the trash, man-made chemical substances, and toxic metals such as arsenic, lead, cadmium, chromium, mercury etc. Biological treatments and the use of chlorine are employed to treat organic matter. Chlorine is added as a disinfectant to kill germs and other microorganisms. One solution has been to try to ensure that no heavy metals are allowed to find their way into water sources, but this is now becoming more and more difficult. Chlorine is commercially produced from the electrolysis of salt solution. Chlorine's properties . heavier than air; easy to combine with other elements, a strong oxidizer; its ability to fade the colors of plant pigments mean that it is widely used as an oxidant, bleach and disinfectant, etc. The water treated with chlorine is drinkable, yet in the process of treating it with chlorine, it loses part of its mineral content. The mineral balance which gives water its good taste is destroyed, and moreover, the water's cool, refreshing taste, which comes from its oxygen content, is ruined by the smell of chlorine, leaving water either disgusting or tasteless.
Consider your bodys water systems
Cardiovascular...Blood, heart, arteries, veins. 90% water
Lymphatic Lymph, collectors, ducts, nodes, B-cells, T-cells 96% water
Craniosacral... cerebrospinal fluid, brain and spinal cord 98% water
Interstitial Pool-extracellular water environment.
Cells floating, hydrating, nourishing & eliminating in the interstitial fluid. The interstitial fluid contains proteins, fats, minerals, and other micronutrients from the blood. In a healthy body, there is always a small number of proteins, fats, bacteria, viruses, fungi, metabolic waste and environmental pollution's.
Your blood circulates from the heart through the arteries and veins back to the heart. The arterial side goes from large vessels to small creating a high pressure system. The venous side goes from small to large vessels creating a low pressure system moving back into the heart. There are also blood capillaries that end and empty into the interstitial pool. Red blood does not leave the cardiovascular system. It is nutrients, minerals and excess proteins, fats, bacteria, viruses, fungi, metabolic waste and environmental pollutions that leave the blood at this point.
It is in the interstitial pool that the lymphatic system joins the cardiovascular stream. Like veins, the lymph is a low pressure system with the flow starting with tiny lymph capillaries that ultimately become large ducts carrying lymph to the heart. This is a one way system. Through this lower pressure and body movement, interstitial fluid is drawn into the initial lymphatic pathways. Once interstitial fluid enters the lymphatic structures, it is considered lymph. The fluid joins with Monocytes/macrophages and Lymphocytes/ B-cells and T-cells which kill, consume and digest unwanted debris. This now harmless substance is returned to the blood where it is filtered through the liver, spleen, kidneys and lungs to be eliminated.
Craniosacral system is a semi closed hydraulic system consisting of the brain and spinal cord encapsulated by the Dura mater and dural tube with cerebrospinal fluid as its liquid. Through the choroid plexus in the brain, cerebrospinal fluid is secreted in the cranial vault. Through the sagittal sinus along the midline of the head, the circulated cerebrospinal fluid is delivered into the bloodstream for elimination.
Imagine... All the blood, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid and interstitial fluid well hydrated, oxygenated, and free of excess. They would be flowing easily, doing their respective jobs easily and seamlessly, keeping your body nourished and clean, hydrated, oxygenated and vibrant.
We are constantly exposed to pollution, electromagnetic frequencies, personal and social stressors, injury, trauma, dietary injustices and metabolic waste. Our planet, food, water and supplies are struggling desperately. All of these different stressors (including all metabolic activity) create free radicals in the body. Free radicals are positively charged. Theyre hot, usually acidic and toxic to us. Our bodies begin to dry up, get gummy and sludge ridden. The blood gets sticky. Blood cells mutate because of toxins, dehydration, lack of oxygen and lack of high quality nutrients, it slows down. It has more debris to eliminate and so the interstitial pool becomes polluted. The lymph must work harder to clean the system and gets overworked, cannot keep up, becomes gummy and hardened. It slows down.
If you cannot eliminate the garbage, the blood keeps getting thicker and more polluted. The brain must stay nourished, hydrated, oxygenated and clean for proper function. Cerebrospinal fluid is the most pure of fluids in the body. It is the blood of the central nervous system delivering water, oxygen and nutrients and carrying away metabolic waste. If the blood is thick, gummy and moving slowly, it will slow down emptying of cerebrospinal fluid from the central nervous system. This will signal the choroid plexus to deliver less new fluid into the system, contributing to all sorts of bodily function imbalance and dis-ease.
We need tools in our daily regimen to counter balance all of the insults our body faces moment to moment. Right up there with a healthy attitude, whole organic foods, clean water and air, Lymphatic Balancing, Craniosacral Therapy, Colon Therapy, Massage bodywork and love.

The water in our bodies is being devitalized and polluted every second with all of the stress that we are constantly exposing it to. When we begin to consume water that has been revitalized and reorganized the first thing that begins to occur is a more fluid cellular environment. Hydrogen and magnesium are necessary for the blood to uptake oxygen. The Hydrogen bonds are relaxed and are freed up from the water molecule in ionic water so the blood can use it. The increased oxygen wakes up the blood and enables it to utilize nutrients and carry away toxin and metabolic waste. The vibration from the water further assists to revitalize the water we already have in our body. The blood begins to move more freely. Interstitial fluid and lymph, being even more water laden than blood also respond to the increased availability of absorbable water. They begin to move more freely. With this increased mobility of blood the cerebrospinal fluid can more fully exit the central nervous system allowing more room for the secretion of abundant fresh fluid into the cranial vault. To simply state, this phenomena carries true throughout the body activating the waters in all of the organs so that they can begin to function properly thereby being able to deliver vital nutrients and eliminate toxins from themselves and the circulatory system.
