How Much Does Water Help Hydration?
Can you ever have too much water in your body? If you are wanting your body to run optimally, you should know how do you know if you are hydrated.
In the 2 previous posts, I've discussed my approach of focusing on eating water for hydration rather than drinking it. The idea of forcing yourself to drink “x” amount of water each day, whether you feel like drinking or are thirsty are one of the many commonly held views of health and fitness that might be ready to be put out to pasture.
Hydration From Foods
Did you know that water can be eaten? When it comes to whole foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, within it, there is water that can be eaten.
The author of the book “The science of cell Water” wrote that the water you drink “will go right through you,” and take any nutrition with it. Hydration is about the water you preserve and it's no longer about the amount of water you drink.
Molecules that facilitate the entry of water into the cells is naturally found in fruits and veggies. This process of cell hydration occurs slowly and lasts longer than simply drinking a glass of water.
Physical Activity Hydration And Health
How exactly does hydration work? What is the correlation between hydration and it's health benefits and can you get a lot of hydration from foods ?
After we are born, it's been estimated that ¾ of our body is made up of water. Science shows that as we become older, the content of the water in our bodies could inevitably be as low as ½. Why? Our cells lose water as we age and our well being is decided by using our cellular’s potential to maintain water.
Improve Your Standard Of Healthy Living
Where do you begin a journey to better health? If you know now is the time to start your path to health, how do you start a health and fitness journey?
Once that decision has been made, a more in-depth question should be what part of your health should you focus upon in order to achieve better health? I believe a starting point for everyone to actually begin that journey with a priority focusing on your gut health. The first step is actually to start taking a note of how you feel, not only immediately after eating but also the next day and the next day. Because foods play a predominate role in those feelings, whether you know it or not.
The Heart-Brain Diet Is Essential Nutrition For Health
How important is nutrition for healthy brain development? It is so important that nutrition and brain development in early life is common core whatever style of eating you and your family prescribe to eating. So what is the best nutrition for brain health?
One of the most fascinating areas of brain and gut fitness is what has been termed dietary psychology. Now reflect on what this truly means. Your brain is continually 'on' in that it takes care of your thoughts, actions, your breathing, heartbeat, your senses. It is working 24/7 even while you're asleep. It's the fact that it is constantly doing something that you would understand your brain calls are in need of a constant supply of meals and nutrition.
3 Ways To Include Spiritual Health Into Your Day
Everyone is looking for spirituality and a sense of purpose, no matter how they classify it. When it comes to our health, a large component of that is the importance of spiritual health and wellbeing.
I believe one of the strongest pillars (and most important from a mental standpoint) is the third of four pillars of holistic health, and that's being spiritually strong.
Now, the spiritual pillar, it's such a personal piece of overall wellness, and everybody tends to define it differently. I look at spirituality as a sense of purpose or direction or meaning, without which values can slip by the wayside. This is done through meditation, prayer, or other activities that foster a connection in nature or to a higher power, and not necessarily about a specific religion or belief system.
Can You Be Physically Well With Better Sleep?
Today I'm going to be discussing the first pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy and that's being physically strong. Now most people immediately think of exercise when they hear physical wellness and although that's an important part of the equation, it's not the only aspect deserving of our attention.
Your body needs more than movement alone. Physical wellness also includes appropriate sleep, hygiene, and a healthy diet. If you're evaluating your physical health, ask these questions, are you getting enough quality sleep? And if not, what barriers are keeping you from achieving regular and restful sleep? The National Sleep Foundation recommend that adults should get anywhere from between seven and nine hours each night of sleep.
Why Holistic Health Is Much More Than Preventing Illness
Today I'm going to start a new series about holistic health and how that "whole health" starts in your belly and then radiates out from there.
Health is often understood as the absence of disease or sickness. Now, while this definition is valid, it actually lacks the comprehensiveness of the broader approach. Start assessing your holistic health and wellness on a wider spectrum.
Is A Vegan Diet Better?
With all of the attention on specific diets and specific foods within those diets, it's normal to question whether things like the vegan diet or lifestyle is actually health? It really doesn't matter if you break it down by philosophy or by what you may have read in the newspaper, it comes down to whether or not the foods you eat help you get to an ideal weight.
