the human body begins to initially inhibit some functions and eventually dismantle its structures and components. As an example, consider the two forms of diabetes.
In type II diabetes, insulin production and release is inhibited.
In type I diabetes the insulin-producing beta-cells are destroyed from inside.
Both forms of diabetes are the direct consequence of unintentional dehydration -- better still, medical ignorance about the importance of water to health and well-being. The human body has no alternative but to deal strictly and economically with problems of dehydration. Thus, there is a metabolic component to dehydration that we must understand in order to reverse a disease process. The word dehydration, not referring to water shortage only ; I am also speaking of the shortage of raw materials that culminates in a disease state.
