Dehydration Dis-Ease: Asthma, which affects 17 million children(2003 figure) and kills several thousand of them every year, and allergies, which afflict 50 million people (also 2003 figure) , are complications of dehydration in the human body.
Shortness of breath in asthma is a water-rationing program of the human body under the control of histamine. In asthma, free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the human body in the form of vapor - the water steam (we adult on average lose about one quart of water through the lungs in 24 hours).
Increased water intake will prevent asthma attacks. It will keep every air cell better hydrated and helps them in their contraction (surface tension of water) to expel their air content every time we exhale.
Asthmatics also need to take more salt to break the mucous plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the lungs' air sacs. They also need to supplement the intake of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and selenium, the intracellular minerals that trap water and keep it inside the cells. Please keep to one glass of fresh orange juice per day, if you happened to have asthma now. In dehydration, these minerals become deficient in the human body. water deficient is the real 'first-cause' for asthma.
Disease: Not recognizing asthma and allergies as indicators of dehydration in the human body of a growing child (cells population multiplying) not only will sentence many unaware thousands of children to die every year, but will also permit irreversible genetic damage to get established in the remaining seventeen(17) million (figure in 2003) asthmatic children and those who suffer from allergies.
Just imagine, one-quarter of children in Harlem district on New York, USA, are reported by the New York Times of April 19, 2003, to be suffering from asthma. This is truly one of the great national tragedies of medical ignorance and will eventually herd these innocent children onto the doomsday train of the drug industry for their shortened future lives.
All school children should use water-cure protocol formula to prevent asthma and allergies to develop: Every 90 minute, drink 10 percent of your own personal daily water quota. water quota is calculated by 31.42 ml multiply by your own body weight(in kilogram). And use 1/4 teaspoon of sea-salt in your daily diet for every 1250 ml water intake. Daily is the keyword here.
