Water Intake is Beneficial
Although it contains no nutrients, water is essential to life and for the growth and maintenance of our bodies. Many people are dehydrated without even knowing it; this is typically caused by a variety of factors:
- not drinking enough pure water
- consuming excessive amounts of caffeine-containing drinks such as coffee and alcohol. Caffeine is a diuretic ie it causes fluid loss from the body
- spending long hours in dry environments such as offices, with exposure to central heating, air conditioning and electrical equipment.
Many natural health practitioners believe that dehydration is the root of some degenerative diseases and health complaints, and studies show that dehydration can contribute to many common ailments such as migraines, allergies, asthma, constipation, kidney stones and even arthritis. This should perhaps be unsurprising, given that our bodies are made up of 70% water, which of course needs to be constantly topped up.
Lack of hydration in the body has also been shown to cause backache: major muscles in the body do not perform properly unless the body has sufficient water intake. One of these, the psoas muscle, which runs from the thigh to the lower back, is the muscle that causes stiff hips and lower back pain.
Our Beloved Sun - We seem to be bombarded with conflicting advice on whether we should sunbathe or not. Cancer Research UK recommends that you stay out of the sun altogether to prevent skin cancer, and I saw the same advice echoed in a Healthspan magazine in 2008. However, this advice has been criticised by some leading scientists and nutritionists.
Vitamin D - The psychological benefits of exposure to sunlight are invigorating and uplifting. Sunlight stimulates production of serotonin, which makes us feel good and, at the same time, suppresses melatonin so we feel less tired. Vitamin D from the sun helps us absorb calcium and prevent osteoporosis (porous bones) - simply eating calcium-rich foods without the vitamin is not enough, as the calcium may end up depositing itself in areas other than the bones, which is not good news.
Holistic Health - A healthy diet and lifestyle can not only help you feel better but may also boost the immune system and contribute to long term prevention of serious illness. From heart disease to diabetes, many conditions can be influenced by what you eat. Rising levels of obesity, heart attacks and strokes mean that it is now more important than ever to look after your body. Regular exercise and a balanced diet can help you achieve a healthy body and sense of well-being.
Salt Assault - Eating too much salt is linked to raised blood pressure, which may lead to an increased risk of heart disease or stroke. The Food Standards Agency recommends a target of 6g of salt per day yet many people are unaware of how much salt they are consuming and do not realise the 'hidden' salt content in many food products. Checking nutrition labels can help you manage your daily salt intake. Why not try choosing reduced salt alternatives? Look out for foods containing 1.25g salt or more per 100g (0.5g sodium or more per 100g) as an indication of products containing a lot of salt. Try to get into the habit of tasting your food before adding salt and you may find that you do not really need to add any, or try seasoning food with herbs and spices instead for added flavour.
