Lack of water can cause daytime fatigue, and impaired mental focus. Many people who suffer from back and joint pain may find it reduced by drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day. Dizziness or vertigo can be a symptom of dehydration, as can headaches, constipation or fatigue. Add minerals to water if it doesn't come from the earth, such as from a river or spring, or take them on side.

Make cabbage water, clay water or sparkling mineral water for extra nutrient value.

Clay water

To one quart of water add:
1/2 teaspoon clay
1 tablespoon raw vinegar or over-acidic kombucha
1/4 teaspoon real salt
juice from a wedge of lemon
1 teaspoon honey

Sparkling Mineral Water

1 Tablespoon raw vinegar
1 Tablespoon honey or sugar syrup
1 Tablespoon ale starter
1/4 teaspoon real salt
juice of a wedge of lemon
1 pint of water
Mix all ingredients together and put into a glass wine bottle. Add a few slivers of the lemon wedge. Put a plastic cork in the bottle and let stand about 3 days at room temperature (more if cold out, less if warmer). If the plastic cork is blown off the bottle, you'll know to leave it a little less time next time.

Salt Water (for drinking)
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of sea or other full-array salt in a 3 cups of water.

The Water Cure  Drink 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces per day.  For example, if you weigh 100 pounds, half of that is 50, 50 ounces is 1 quart (32 ounces) plus 2 1/4 cups. If you weigh 256 pounds, half of that is 128, 128 ounces is a gallon. Divide the amount you have to drink into 8 or 10 ounce glasses and that's how many glasses you have to drink per day. Add 1/4 teaspoon of a full-array salt such as sea salt (do not use refined table salt) for every quart of water you drink and use salt liberally with food, or add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to each glass of water if you are not using salt on your food.


Can too much water cause dehydration?

You may read that excess water can dehydrate the body, as indicated by having cold hands and feet or experiencing edema (too much water in the cells, causing swelling). The problem is that modern, processed water is often too acidic, and our rain is more acidic than it was in pre-industrial times, and these deplete the body of minerals, or "electrolytes" as they are often called in this context. Water, in its natural state, should come from the ground and supply its own minerals. If you are drinking extra water and it is not naturally-mineralized water, make sure you are also getting the minerals that should accompany the water. You can do this by adding a teaspoon of edible clay, plant ashes or powdered dolomite and a pinch of sea salt to each quart of water, or taking an equivalent amount of mixed, full-array minerals as a supplement with the water. See Minerals for more information about full-array mineral sources. A test for edema is to push the flesh in with a finger and then withdraw it. If the indentation of the flesh remains when it is no longer being pushed in, that can be caused by edema.
