Reminder: Water is Life

Everyone has been told that nothing could be more important than drinking water. While a human can survive about three weeks without food, it typically takes just three days before one perishes without water – in harsh environments, one only has three hours.

Experts recommend that a regular adult consume 48 to 64 ounces of water every day to ensure optimal health. Not doing so can lead to dehydration and, eventually, serious health consequences.

There are other liquids that can hydrate the human body. However, water is the most ideal alternative because of several factors, such as its purity, lack of additives, and it has no calories.



Water serves many functions to human health, such as:

  • Maintains balance of body fluids
    • The body weight is approximately 60 percent water, and the cells, tissues, and organs need every ounce of it to function optimally. Because the body loses water by breathing, digesting, sweating, and other physical activities, there is a need to consume water to rehydrate the body.
  • Aids in ridding the body of waste
    • Sufficient intake of water aids the body in excreting wastes through urination, defecation, and perspiration. Without water, the kidneys, intestines, and liver would be overworked in flushing out waste. There is also an increased likelihood of constipation if there is inadequate water in the body.

According to Ancient Healing techniques of the Siddha-Veda healers, water element (called “kapha”) is one of the three “doshas” which needs to be respected and balanced in the human body. The other two doshas, according to world authority on ancient healing Dr. Pankaj Naram, are fire (or “pitta”) and air (or “vata”). It is through respecting and balancing each that deep healing and longevity are possible for any person.
