Water is a very complex topic. I will say anyone telling you how much water to drink is just as off base as someone telling you what to eat. If you've been following the blog I've been trying to challenge some commonly supported ideas about food, exercise, time and more. Before I dive into water here is a graphic I made to try to better explain how I see things. It is a simplification so if you are up on deeper science then don't pick it apart. I have found that visuals help in explanation.
Hopefully this shows you the story of food as 1 of 3 primary ways we get sunlight into our bodies (there is a lung component but most people aren't covering up this serface so i'm not gonna dive into it)
why clothes outdoors, sun block, makeup ect are an issue
why sunglasses are an issue
why being indoors is an issue
A person doing all those things rely totally on food for sunlight intake which is why food has become such a big topic of conversation but shouldn't be if the other issues are addressed.
Then you see the levels I often refer to. You, organ, cell, mitochondria, electron chain transfer, electron itself. The lower the level everything above it is effected. Which is why chemical substances are only relevant after the conversation of light, time, and electrons has been had.
So this is the beginning and the end of the story. Anyone trying to explain how to play chess that never explains where the board starts and stops is a poor teacher. All the different pieces are contained within this story of light. This where most alt health people mess up. They tell you all about a queen or a knight and how they move not ever explaining the board they move on.
I could go on and on with this but the important point on the chart for this is the water. You see it in two places. the environmental water that interacts with you, plants and animals. You also see it in the mitochondria, this is the fountain of youth where water is made inside you.
I was recently at a meeting and everyone was drinking celery juice. Apparently there is a health person out there pushing celery juice as the newest cure all.
Questions on this?
-Is all celery created equal? people know organic verses non organic
-Does any organic food take water into account?........No
-Would you drink the water going into the celery? probably not if you saw it
-Are deuterium levels an issue with juicing?....yes
-Are deuterium levels the same in different places?....No
-What is deuterium? (I've touched on this a lot in the past) heavy hydrogen that slows down the engines in your cells like thick oil.
-In CA where I live by the ocean are deuterium levels higher? ...yes
-Is the person pushing celery juice mentioning any of this? ...not as far as I can tell.
So juicing depends on location, water used to grow the plant organic or not and of course the light environment and mitochondrial function of the person drinking it.
Not to mention the obvious all juicing is is stripping the fiber (aka prebiotics) out increasing the insulin spike from the juice.
A camel does well in the dessert without much water. They have very good mitochondria and humps filled with water?.....no....carbs?.....no fat?....yes. They use the fat in their humps to provide hydrogen and they breath which provides the oxygen. In the mitochondria the process of cellular enegy creation mixes these two making water.
So now you know that a high fat diet may be way less to do with macros or insulin and much more to do with water. The water that is created is fresh and new, it doesn't have high deuterium levels. It think this is why there is a carnivore push in LA going on. They are getting lots of iron that is higher in electrons than magnesium, so red blood vs green plant blood has less of an electron benefit and electrons interact with light but they are also removing the water element from the equation. They are unknowingly depleting the deuterium in their systems and cutting out the junk water. While making good water in their mitochondria and here in CA we are on the coast. Coastal waters are much higher in deuterium than in land so hopefully you see that celery and plants are not all created equal.
What depletes deuterium? Light, so now you see I'm not promoting carnivore diets or keto diets as a life style just explaining why one may benefit from it in a specific place.
Question anyone pushing juicing of any kind. Ask them about deuterium, ask them about water not being a factor in organic vs non organic plants. No one should be worried about a water filter and not the water in the plants. Here in CA I can pull over and see the pipes they pump the water out of. Ask me if I wanna take a glass of it?
Water is a very important topic - here is some help to know if your asking the right person about it.
Ask your health practitioners, trainers, health coaches, md's and anyone else you are seeing about their sleep. Being on the inside it is hard to find anyone not consuming thc, alcohol or drugs on a daily basis to sleep. If you don't wanna ask just look at their light environment, their products, their message. If it is not about natural light and time as the canvas the message is painted on chances are you should look for a different health person. Listen for words like nutrition or detox. Ask where nutrition comes from and why some people accumulate toxins and others don't. Where to look? No one knows your environment better than you.
Don't drink tap water (most drinks you buy are made with it, if it says filtered water know that a filter is a very loose term) this is coffee, teas, soft drinks ect.
Don't drink fluoridated water this effects the water's ability to act as a battery in the cell.
Question plants - If you understand that light, time, and water are primary factors in what is food -organic or not organic doesn't address any of these.
The more worried about water you are the more you will have to embrace your inner camel.
Drink spring water - this depends on your location, do your best.
Make high quality water inside the cells
Oh and how much water to drink? That depends on how much water you make.
As always thank you for being part of my journey.
