Drink Water – It is Vitally Important!
- Psychological and environmental stress depletes water from
- Water is essential to proper lymphatic functioning and is
most easily absorbed at room temperature.
- All other liquids are processed as food and do not serve
the body’s needs for water.
- Foods that contain water, like fruits and vegetables, help
lubricate the system, including the intestines.
- Processed foods do not contain water and, like caffeinated
drinks, can be dehydrating.
- You need one ounce of water per day for every three pounds
of body weight and twice that amount in times of stress.
- Water activates the electrical and chemical action between
the brain and the nervous system, promoting efficient storage and
retrieval of information.
- All academic skills are improved by taking adequate amounts
- Proper water consumption gives a heightened ability to move
and participate in activities.
- Adequate water intake facilitates stress release, enhancing
communication and social skills.
- The water is a medium which carries the “Chi” energy around
- Water acts as a cleansing tool and eliminates toxins
released during the “Chi” movement.
- Having to urinate frequently removes any sludgy material in
the interstitial spaces and also organ sludge that is building up.
- By drinking an extra four glasses of pure water a day (1
glass before and after each session) you will be adding greatly to the
Vital for Digestive Process
When we drink one glass of water, it immediately passes
into the intestine and is absorbed.
However, within one half hour, almost the same amount of water is
secreted into the stomach through its glandular layer in the mucosa. It swells from underneath and gets into
the stomach, ready to be used for food breakdown. The act of digestion of solid foods
depends on the presence of copious amounts of water. The acid is poured on the food, enzymes
are activated, and the food is broken down into a homogenized fluid state
that can pass into the intestine for the next phase of digestion.
The efficiency of the protective shield against the
acid in the stomach depends on a regular intake of water, particularly
before the intake of different solid foods that would stimulate the
production of acid from the glands in the stomach wall. Thus, water provides the only natural
protection against the acid in the stomach, from base upward.
Instead of reaching for medication or antacids for digestive
distress, reach for a glass or two of water. After all, water and only water, is what
the body wants, needs, and is calling for.

Not Sick…Just Thirsty!
Water is so important. One young man was literally drowning in
toxins and when he was asked, “How much water do you drink a day?” he
responded, ”One glass.” Was it any
wonder that he was having problems!
Be certain you are drinking sufficient water to flush the body out.
You should be eliminating every day and breathing deeply,
along with the water intake. There
are four ways of eliminating the toxins:
Through the urine, through the bowels, through proper breathing and
exhaling, and through the sweat of the body. That is how the body cleanses itself.
If you are not doing these things, you are going to
build up toxins, and the Aerobic Exerciser (Chi Machine) is the easiest way
to help you in correcting that! It
assists all the body systems. Just
lay down and take it easy. Use it
every day and it will do wonders for you.

Much are You Drinking?
- Your body needs an absolute minimum of six to eight-ounce
glasses of water a day.
- Alcohol, coffee, tea, and caffeine-containing beverages
don’t count as water
- The best time to drink water is one glass ˝ hour before
taking food-breakfast, lunch, and dinner-and one glass 2 ˝ hours after
- For the sake of not shortchanging your body, two more
glasses should be taken around the heaviest meal or before going to
Wisdom of Drinking Water
Water washes away excess salts and toxins, purifying
the body. This is the way it
works: A body without enough fluid
to flush out toxins will suffer a toxin buildup and seek to hold water to
try to dilute them. Furthermore, if
you are on a weight-loss diet, water removes waste products, such as
ketones, which can harm normal tissue.
Much Water Do I Really Need?
Figure how much water you need with a little simple
math: The minimum amount of water
required is a half-ounce to every pound of body weight. For 140 pounds, that’s 70 ounces of
water, or close to eight glasses a day.
Strangely enough, a lot of people have trouble with the idea that
eight glasses of water a day is important.
They prefer tea, coffee, juices, sodas, anything with flavor. But tea and coffee increase your body’s
need for pure water. Fruit juices
and sodas have a lot of sugar and calories, while diet sodas have dangerous
additives and ironically, they tend to add weight anyway.
The solution: Add lemon or lime to your water and the
taste becomes more interesting.
Forget to Drink Water!
Exercising or doing athletic activity consumes a
certain amount of energy and generates heat as a result of burning the fat
inside of your body. The effect is a
chemical reaction and a kind of combustion occurs. Our Aerobic Exerciser (Chi Machine) lets
you exercise in comfort without much perspiration, so four out of ten
people forget to drink water. The
result can be a bit of pain or sore throat, or some small rash on the
face. Drinking water will help
reduce the “fire”.
