Water: The Beverage of Life

Written by Bette L. Hall CMA, NHC

Water and weight loss go hand-in-hand. Let me give you an illustration. When you emptyrepparttar pot of oatmeal intorepparttar 143487 sink it just sits there. If you didn’t do anything with it and allowed it to sit, eventually it would ferment and rot, and become infested with flies or maggots. Imagine if you eat a meal and don’t take in any liquids, your food would just sit there and ferment and rot causing constipation and other digestive problems.

Once you’ve thrownrepparttar 143488 oatmeal intorepparttar 143489 sink, if you wash it downrepparttar 143490 drain with water, it will easily go downrepparttar 143491 pipes and your sink will be clean and fresh and healthy. The body isrepparttar 143492 same way. You’ve got to wash that meal downrepparttar 143493 pipes (your esophagus) with water to keep your system clean and fresh and healthy.

Onrepparttar 143494 other hand, if you washrepparttar 143495 oatmeal downrepparttar 143496 drain with soda pop,repparttar 143497 oatmeal will go down butrepparttar 143498 sink will be sticky and stained and unhealthy. Likewise,repparttar 143499 soda pop will cause your system to be unhealthy and can lead to various problems.

Oral Chelation (pronounced “key lay shun”) is simplyrepparttar process by which metals, minerals and toxins are removed fromrepparttar 143486 body throughrepparttar 143487 use of certain agents (chelating agents) that bond with those elements – literally forming a circle around them – and flushing them out throughrepparttar 143488 body’s natural waste material. One ofrepparttar 143489 toxins whichrepparttar 143490 chelating agents identify for removal is arterial plaque. By removing this, you can avoid build-up of plaque withinrepparttar 143491 arteries and promote greater heart health.

EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid) is one ofrepparttar 143492 most effective chelating agents in use today. The synthetic amino acids which make up EDTA providerepparttar 143493 foundation on which protein is built and was first utilized inrepparttar 143494 U.S. in 1948. Designed as a treatment for those who were working in a battery factory as a treatment for lead poisoning – which was approved byrepparttar 143495 FDA –repparttar 143496 Navy soon followed in its use of this chelating agent for sailors who absorbed lead while applying paint to ships and other government property.

In 1952, oral chelation was being used by doctors for those patients who were suffering from hardening ofrepparttar 143497 arteries as a result of arterial plaque build-up. Those for whom oral chelation was prescribed exhibited a reduction in both ofrepparttar 143498 areas.

Had it not been for using EDTA to treat lead poisoning at that time, physicians wouldn’t have hadrepparttar 143499 opportunity to note this effect on their patients, andrepparttar 143500 impact that it had on these illnesses might never have been discovered.

While most people may think thatrepparttar 143501 exposure to lead contaminants has been all but eliminated today, it has actually increased overrepparttar 143502 years and continues to be an ever-present threat in items such as tap water, residues in processed foods, cosmetics, mouthwash, toothpaste, shampoo, soap and a wide variety of hair care products.
