Water As A Weapon Against Acne
by Wycliffe Williams
Let's face it, even in the absence of scientific evidence, a major clue of the
importance of water to our survival stems from the fact that water makes up two
thirds of the body. Hint-hint! Water will greatly improve your ability to fight off and
By the way, busy day at work today? So busy that you didn't even pause to gulp
down a drink of water? When you neglect to drink, the water in your body
decreases, causing a decrease in your blood volume. When your blood volume
decreases to a dangerous level, the thirst control center in your brain, the
hypothalamus, gets triggered into action. Ever find yourself overcome by that
"thirsty feeling?" That's the hypothalamus demanding that you quench the bodies
Consider this fact... a very important point. Whenever you get that "thirsty feeling"
you're already dehydrated. Here's why you need to be aware of this important point.
You tend to only drink enough to "quench your thirst." But you really need to drink
much more in order to increase your blood volume. So, if you're thirsty, drink lots
and lots of water.
These ten tips will help us stay in top condition, and show us how water can
be used as a weapon against acne:
1. Water aids in the proper digestion and absorption of food in the colon. Please don't
be confused on this point. You should not drink liquids while consuming a meal.
Powerful stomach acids can adequately process the food. Drinking liquids with meals
only serves to weaken the stomach acids and slow down or at times even stop
digestion. Water should be taken on board at least thirty minutes before or thirty
minutes after the meal.
2. Water aids in the circulation and elimination of the body. The body eliminates
through perspiration, urination, and excretion. This water must be replaced.
3. If you don't eat food for 5-6 weeks, the strong possibility exists that you could
die. If you don't drink water for 5-6 days, in all likelihood you will die.
4. Two thirds of the weight of your body is water. Think of it! If you weigh 180 lbs.
Then 120 lbs. of your weight is water.
5. Water is essential to transporting waste out of the body.
6. As much as ninety five percent of your brain is water.
7. Long stint sitting at your desk today? When you get up to stretch, do you hear
your bones making all sorts of weird popping and cracking noises? Make a bee line
for the water cooler because water is a lubricant, it will help.
8. Do you enjoy public speaking? Mouth ever dry out? Tongue feel like a piece of
leather? What do you reach for, toast? Of course not! You reach for water because
the base for saliva is water.
9. If you sit most of time, constipation may surface as a problem. Water can prevent
constipation, by keeping things moist and moving.
10. Put that can of soda down. Now! Get over to the water cooler and get yourself a
drink of water. That 12 oz. can of soda is chuck full of acid, (don't even start with
the sugar). Let's say you realize the error of your ways, and you wanted to
neutralize the acid now in your body from that soda you just drank. You better get
started immediately drinking your water, because it will take 32 glasses to do the job.
Here's more, each one of these tips constitutes a plank in building the foundation of a
healthy system. A healthy system gives you a fighting chance in the battle against
acne. While engaged in this battle, everyone should drink quality water on a daily
basis. If you don't drink your six-pack daily, (water that is), you leave yourself
vulnerable and open to illness and disease. Water is the frontline weapon in the battle

Acne can be likened to a lion who
strikes after observing a calf with a
bad limp. Acne is an opportunistic
attacker. If acne fought you in a
boxing match, it would in fact hit you
while you were down. It shows up
when the internal environment of the
body becomes sufficiently prone and
vulnerable to attack.
Under the right conditions, acne will
slip into the doorway unannounced.
Quality water will keep acne on the
outside looking in. Drink plenty of
water in your battle with acne.
