The body is made up of 80% water; moisture depends on the proper functioning of all organs and systems. A man of normal health excretes through sweat and urine about two liters of water a day. Where did the man take this water to remove it? Well, a largely part from vegetables and fruits, but mostly it’s the water we drink. If we wouldn’t drink water, the body will suffer from a dangerous shortage because the body begins to extract water from fluids or body fluids, causing a series of severe imbalances in the body such as the impoverishment of the blood, which would be a major cause of ailments and diseases of all kinds.
However, the wisdom of the nature of the body, with a water shortage, doesn’t attack first the essential humors or body fluids such as blood or lymph, but it forces the body to absorb or reduce its activity " save water ", so then we can feel exhausted, tired, listless or even depressed. This causes water deficiency, moreover, that the stool to harden, so it may appear constipation and all the diseases derived, such as blood poisoning, dyspepsia, allergies of all kinds, infections, skin problems of all kinds, overweight, fevers, wear of organs and systems, etc.
