The quality of the water we drink is important and confusing. There are so many water filters, water on our supermarket shelves and of course tap water. The endless choices can be frustrating. To keep this simple I’ll hop straight to the chase. Zazen is a good place to start in your research to getting yourself well hydrated. First of all, zazen provides mineralised water so many essential nutrients are added back into the water naturally. Just as mother nature does it, following the filtration process. Next, it is alkaline, which is beneficial for the body. This is my system of choice and I’d recommend it or any system that compares.
Are you Hydrated?
The best technique to answer the question, “Are you hydrated?” is to simply have a muscle test. At the beginning of every session I test, ‘water, hydration, dehydration.’ If the body tests hydration is OK, we proceed with our session. If not, we stop, drink, retest, then proceed. Other more everyday points you can check off yourself include:
These are a few questions to ask yourself to answer the question, are you hydrated?
- Firstly, are you drinking plain old H2O? Plain water as it is and as nature intended?
- What is the colour of your urine?- it should be light straw-like colour with no odour.
- Do you feel thirsty? If so, your certainly dehydrated.
- How much tea, coffee or other caffeine are you drinking?
- And alcohol?
- Salty or processed foods such as cured meats and processed foods?
- What is the temperature outside?- the hotter the more likely we will be dehydrated.
- Amount of exercise- If your exercising you need to up your intake
Did you know a cause of dehydration is holding onto stress and trauma. This can have a cell shrivelling up effect on the body. Stress and trauma over-ride the pituitary gland. The MASTER GLAND. This in turn dictates every cell of the body shut their doors. Close their gates. And STOP ABSORBING WATER! The body thinks it is in a state of emergency, and water is the last thing it needs when its flooded by stress hormones.
This is where our powerful kinergetics stress and trauma corrections come into play. By accessing and releasing stored up, pent up emotions and traumas, many of which are conscious we free up the pituitary gland to get out of this fight and flight mode.
A technique that help
Simply hold your hands fingers and thumb tight together over the kidneys for 2 minutes each side.
Hydration is very important. During every session we test hydration levels. Furthermore, we further correct hydration in so much as a body hydration technique or brain hydration technique. Occasionally we focus on hydration and trauma release in the same correction technique. This is because hydration isn’t just about the amount we drink. Rather it is about how the body absorbs, utilises and eliminates water too. In contrast, you can drink water and if not utilised well you will soon be running to the toilet without the water going to any good use as a result.
Rest assured, during your sessions we will certainly concentrate on area’s you ask for help. Whether it be relationship issues, anxiety or a painful lower back. In addition to this, I will work on your basic foundation of health. Keeping you hydrated and relaxed so your at your absolute best to go out there, tackle the world and enjoy it to your max!
