Body Awareness: 5 Reasons Why Your Body is Mad at You

FatigueOriginally published here.

In modern times, we are in such a rush and have such a DO! DO! DO! attitude, that we forget our bodies. We ignore them, push them to the limits, and expect them to do what we want them to do without asking them what they need to get the job done.

If you listen, your body is often trying to have a conversation with you, but during a hectic day, it’s easy to keep ignoring its pleas.

Here is an example of my day before I began practicing body awareness.

The Side Effects of Drinking Alkaline Water

what are the side effects of drinking alkaline water

What will you feel like when you drink alkaline water?

From my personal experience, my body needed some time to adjust when I first tried drinking alkaline water on a regular basis. I remember I would drink a large glass before bed and my stomach would gurgle and I’d feel very lethargic. Then after a few days, my system became accustomed to it, and I began to notice the following:

Relief from acid reflux

I’ve suffered from acid reflux for years. It became so uncomfortable, I went to see a doctor. I had an endoscopy and she discovered I had a hiatal hernia and an ulcer. I took PPI’s to allow the ulcer to heal, but the hernia still allowed stomach enzymes and acid into my oesophageus so I had to continue the medication.

Now that I drink alkaline water between meals, my GERD has all but disappeared, and only acts up when I’ve overindulged in trigger foods like coffee, wine, and fatty meats. I’ve stopped the daily medication and only take over the counter antacids for the occasional times I veer off my alkaline diet.

Cleaner mouth

Since drinking alkaline water, I notice my mouth feels cleaner throughout the day. My gums are pink, my teeth feel smooth, and my breath is fresher.

Clearer eyes

My eyes used to sometimes look dull or bloodshot when I was tired, but now that I drink alkaline water the sclera (the white part) is always clear, bright white.

Better sleep

I’m not sure what the reason this for is, but I sleep deeper and better since I began drinking alkaline water.

Faster fitness recovery

I’ve always maintained a rather demanding workout routine. I would suffer regular soreness and stiffness whenever I overdid it. Now that I drink alkaline water, I don’t feel the lactic acid build-up and DOMS the next day like I used to.

Reduced PMS symptoms

I noticed greatly reduced bloating, moodiness, and pain. This was a pleasant surprise!

Weight loss

I lost over five pounds since I began drinking alkaline water, and I haven’t changed my diet at all. In fact, I’ve been indulging in some acidic foods like wine, chocolate, and bread. I’m not sure how it happened. I think some of it was water weight, because when I first began drinking alkaline water I would urinate a lot. Now I’m maintaining an average five pounds less without any extra effort!

***

These were my personal experiences and I am thrilled with the results. No wonder movie stars and celebrities drink alkaline water for health and beauty.

Alkaline water will affect everyone differently, but I highly recommend trying it to see what it can do for you.

Toxins

Skin may seem like a waterproof membrane, but that doesn’t mean it is impermeable. Just because you are not ingesting or inhaling something doesn’t mean it is not finding a way into your bloodstream, your fat stores, and your organ tissue.

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it needs to breathe, sweat and release its natural oils to be healthy and protect your body from the outside world.

The chemicals in make-up, soap, lotions, powders and sunblocks can block these functions and also be absorbed through the pores and minuscule spaces between skin cells. Once these chemicals enter the body they can cause
• toxic buildup
• hormone disruptions
• carcinogens and free-radicals
• DNA mutations
• allergic and immune reactions
• environmental damage

Just take a look at the ingredients listed on your shampoo, body lotion, facial moisturizer, or sunblock. Unless you are a chemist, chances are you will not be able to decipher what it is that you’re putting on your body. With regular use over long periods of time, some of these cosmetic ingredients can do more harm than good.

Why drink alkaline water?

Some acids are essential to your body. Ascorbic acid, better known as vitamin C, helps your immune system fight invading germs. Hydrochloric acid is produced by your stomach to digest your food so that the nutrition can be absorbed. Amino acids are crucial to perform functions in the brain and body. But all acid is not the same and too much of anything is never good. Acidic waste builds up in the body due to poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles. Alkaline water can bring you back into balance.
