Dehydration and low mineral/electrolytic conductivity within the body are the highest triggers for disease and illness on the planet today. Dehydration occurs when the body loses more water than what is taken in. It is often accompanied by disturbances in the body’s mineral salt or electrolyte balance, especially disturbances in the concentrations of sodium and potassium.
The body tends to lose around 1.5–2.5 litres of bodily fluids daily; the body can compensate for a temporary loss in fluids by shifting water from the cells into the blood vessels. These fluids need to be replaced, or else the body can suffer some serious consequences. The body loses fluids through a combination of processes such as urinating, vomiting, breathing and sweating.
Hydrate by drinking lots of water; better still, drink fruit and vegetable juices, as they contain a dense saturation of minerals that have been absorbed from the soils. Just by keeping hydrated the quality of your joints and skin can be enhanced greatly. Many people often mistake thirst for hunger, so the next time you think you’re hungry (if you are trying to lose weight or eliminate some kind of pain/inflammation from the body), try drinking a litre of alkalised/lemon water. In this way you can give your body time to properly digest previously eaten foods before the next meal.
Programming has led the population into believing that 3–4 meals per day are absolutely essential for the body to absorb adequate nutrition. Eating so many meals per day, especially processed, dead foods, causes sickness, as you cannot possibly be cleanly digesting so much without the body leaving behind metabolic waste that gets trapped in the joints, lymphatic system, sinuses and kidneys. Humans are clogged.
Two meals a day is best, with a potential fruit/green juice or fruit snack. Oranges, watermelons, celery, grapes and cucumbers are real high-water, highly nourishing hydrating foods. Maximum energisation is embraced from your soul self; you can tap into that through meditation regardless of your religion, as the energy is all the same.
Protoplasmic energy, on the other hand, is derived from the minerals and sugars from fruit and vegetables. Fruit vibrates higher than any other food, creating a resonant energy that when consumed adds great energy to your electromagnetic self. You will attract other people, and you will attract good things into your life as the high vibrational fruit energy will allow you to attract love, prosperity and abundance into your sphere of reality.
Consuming fruit delivers hydration and mineralisation to the body; the fruit acids are also amazing solvents that clean out the body’s pipework. You want as much energy as possible flowing through the pipes, such as blood vessels, nerve vessels and lymph vessels. When you start to hydrate, mineralise and alkalise the body, everything can begin to disperse. The reason why human beings have pain, inflammation, stiffness, chronic and acute illnesses is because of the waste matter that has built up within the organism, causing cellular dysfunction. These three methodologies are vital for higher cellular function.
There are various types of inflammation, but there are also acids that have accumulated within the body that need to be dispersed with a constant flow of water and mineral salts. This ensures a consistent flow of the lymphatic system and kidneys in order to clear out the starchy carbohydrate residues that are left behind from processed and inorganic breads, cakes, grains and dairy. Alongside carbohydrate residue is uric acid that is stored within the body from the consumption of animal proteins. If you’re going to eat a diet high in animal products and proteins, it is wise to neutralise the acids with leafy greens, preferably in the form of green juices.
The three types of dehydration
If the body loses bodily fluids at a level of more than one per cent of your body weight, reductions in physical and cognitive performance can occur and may cause impairment of thermoregulation (ability of an organism to keep its body temperature within certain boundaries) and cardiovascular functions. With fluid deficits of four per cent, severe performance decrements may be observed as well as difficulties in concentration, headaches, irritability and sleepiness and even increases in respiratory rates. Dehydration that causes a loss of ten per cent or more of body weight can be fatal.
Hypotonic dehydration is when there is a larger loss of sodium in the body than there is water. High sweat instances, gastro-intestinal water losses or electrolyte deficits can be characterised by an osmotic shift of fluids from the extracellular area to the intracellular. This can occur from excessive intake of plain water that has little to no mineral content, such as certain bottled waters and tap water. This complication can be life-threatening if swelling causes pressure on the brain (cerebral oedema). This is called hyponatremia (An electrolyte disturbance in which the sodium Ion concentration in the blood plasma).
Hypertonic dehydration is when water loss exceeds mineral salt loss, more water than sodium is lost. This is triggered by inadequate water intake, excessive sweating, osmotic diuresis and drugs. Hypotonic dehydration is characterised by an osmotic shift of water from the intracellular fluids to the extracellular fluid, most common for those people who are diabetic accounting for 5% of paediatric cases of dehydration.
Isotonic dehydration is characterised by a loss of both water and mineral salts from the extracellular fluids, both reduced in equivalent amounts. This can be induced through vomiting, sickness, diarrhoea or simply through inadequate intake. There is no osmotic shift of water from the intracellular space to the extracellular space. This type of dehydration accounts for cases of dehydration in young children.
Mineral Salts and Electrolytes
The study of biochemistry is the study of the chemistry of life, the study of the union between organic and inorganic substances whereby new compounds are formed. In relation to so-called disease, biochemical systems focus on the levels of inorganic cell salts and tissue builders present in the body.
The constituent parts of your body are principles, such as oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, lime, iron, potash, soda, silica and magnesium, just to name a few. These elements and gases are perfect in their molecular structures but may be endlessly diversified in combination, like the wood, bricks, mortar and stones that can be used to erect a building.
The human body is a receptacle, a container in which much is stored; it is a storage battery that will always run on charge if the chemicals are present in the proper quantity and combination, similar to how a car would run when charged and supplied with the necessary ingredients for it to vibrate and cause motion. The cell salts are found in foods (mainly natural) and are carried into the blood after digestion, where they carry the process of life and, by the law of chemical affinity, ensure that the human form and bodily functions are materialised.
When a deficiency occurs in any of the electrolyte or mineral workers due to a non-assimilation of food, poor liver functioning or digestion processes then dematerialisation of the body commences. It can be said that disease is a deficiency of some of the chemical constituents that carry on the chemistry of life, and not an entity in itself. Once you learn that disease is not a thing, but a cry out for help from the body due to conditions that lack some inorganic constituents of the blood, it follows logically that the proper method of curing is to supply the blood that it lacks.
Electrolytes (also known as ions) are minerals in your blood and other body fluids that carry an electric charge. Electrolytes affect the amount of water in your body, the acidity of your blood (pH), your muscle function and other important processes. You lose electrolytes when you sweat. You must replace them by drinking fluids as they are highly important for the communication between cells and carry voltages across cell membranes.
Charged electrolytes are primarily composed of the minerals sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, chloride, phosphates and sulphates and are regulated by the liver. Your body is made up of the same minerals that are in the Earth, as human beings are a part of nature, directly connected physically, spiritually and energetically. When you’re healthy, you actually take on the same form as nature does. What works for the plants will work for humans.
Ions and minerals provide the body with balance and encourage a higher cellular vibratory rate within the physical body. Just as you can clean and enhance your luminous energy field and auric body (as was discussed in the previous chapter), the same is true for your physical body at a cellular level.
Just as minerals provide balance in your body, they help make things ‘go’. They keep your bones strong and your immune system healthy; they support your nervous system, produce energy and create cells. They work with the vitamins consumed and can be potent antioxidants, those which destroy free radicals.
Minerals and electrolytes are the gateway to a higher cellular vibratory rate, a higher vibrational field of energy within the physical body which, in turn, keeps equanimity with your energetic body/ self. Once you detoxify the layers of mucous from the cell membranes and start to nourish them with high water, high mineral and high alkalising foods, your body can reach a higher vibratory rate, one in which disease may find it nearly impossible to thrive in and systemic energy levels can run at peak performance.
Systemic energy differs somewhat from the temporary ‘high’ kind of energy that you may feel from consuming coffee or an excess of sugar foods. Systemic energy is the energetic force at the deepest cellular level, right down to the atomic structure of your being, which arises when you detoxify and nourish this microcosmic part of yourself, the negatively charged electrons and the positively charged protons (the parts of the nucleus) form a perfectly balanced whole.
If the system is clean and undisturbed, both parts of the atom are electrically neutral and reside in close relationship; these subsystems vibrate with high velocity. The dynamic balance between the protons and electrons at the deepest energy level is known as the normal state of the atom. With this being said, it is crucial for somebody who is in ill health or who wants to have more energy and feel better to target this area. Detoxification, alkalisation and regeneration at the deepest levels can save somebody’s life and restore that person to perfect health. We will delve deeper into detoxification later on.
