It can offer a good indication of your general wellness while at the same time revealing alarming insights. Imagine what new cells operating at a new , higher level can do for you, your looks and your well-being.

Clearly, the higher your score, the healthier you are (and probably the higher your Phase Angle **); the lower you score, the more you'll benefit from this blog site's posts.

If you scored below 10, you're a prime candidate for taking every concept in this blog seriously and going at whatever pace you need to apply the Water Secret to your life.

Bear in mind that it may take time for your body to respond to a shift in your lifestyle, however great or small. Give yourself a breaking-in period for you to establish these habits forever. 

In fact, some of these habits can create new neuronal pathways in your body. That's right : the brain is NOT as hardwired as we previously thought. 

The moment you decide to adapt these ideas to your life is the moment you begin to make physical, neurochemical, and hormonal changes in your body for the better---ones that will support your goal of bringing out your absolute best. Small changes add up and can have a big impact. Virtually everyone can benefit from embracing this principle, including those who would say they lead healthy, happy lives, or who scored above a 30.

Take Note of the answers in the quiz that get you zero, 0 , points. let those be your focal points as you move forward. 

For example, you may look pretty good now, but  you know that your stressful life is going to catch up with you and start bringing down that appearance and energy level if you don't learn to cope better. You can always do better, because there is no such thing as a perfect 10. It's simply a benchmark. 

No matter where you  are on the spectrum of health, remember that you've visit this blog for a reason. A little voice inside you is telling you that it's time to make a change. Whatever that change may be, understanding the Water Secret will be your launching pad.  

** Phase Angle.
 Is a marker used to determine how well a person/patient is. "Phase Angle" (PA) -- a new diagnostic tool used in many research circles to DETERMINE the CONDITION of the BODY, specifically the BODY'S CELLS. 

Your Phase Angle tells you how strong every cell in your body is right this second.

The essence of the Water Secret is the following : vibrant health from the inside out lies in maintaining strong cells that can attract and keep water the way younger cells do.

If you can repair your cell membranes ( and I mean all cells, from brain cells and heart cells to connective tissue and your outermost skin cells that present you to the world) while attracting water and nutrients to them, you can fight aging  and disease.
