To maintain the optimal levels of fluids and minerals in our bodies, we need to continually top them up.

This means drinking before we feel thirsty. The sensation of thirst is the first sign of dehydration, and can be the result of physical activity as well as simply breathing or sweating. Thirst also places an unnecessary burden on the brain and kidneys. The lack of water in our bodies causes the biliary and urinary acids to crystallize. These crystals irritate the mucous membrane and damage it. They can also form bladder stones or cause persistent inflammation of the urinary and biliary tracts.
