Sarah, a 42 year old woman was suffering from health symptoms including poor digestion and reoccurring headaches. Desperate to try something to cure her ailments, she sought the help of a medical professional who encouraged Sarah, to increase her daily water intake to 3 liters. Sarah was willing to try anything to address her health concerns but little did she know that three liters of water would benefit her in ways she couldn't have imagined.
The image you are seeing before is the transformation Sarah experienced after only four weeks of drinking three liters of water a day.
- The bags under her eyes are gone.
- Dark circles disappeared.
- Her skin tone is even toned and brighter.
- Her lips are plumper.
- Wrinkles have diminished greatly.
- She appears almost decade younger than she did just four weeks earlier.
If this isn't enough to keep you inspired every time you take a sip of water, I don't know what is. Sarah also experienced improvements in her digestion, her flexibility and her headaches disappeared. She even lost a little weight during the process and experienced improvement in her cellulite.
Last week I traveled across the country to attend business meetings. I posted on my instagram page an image of my water along with other necessities to maintain moisture levels. I know the devastation that occurs when we are dehydrated. A counterpart and I hosted the meeting for our department. Throughout the entire 3 days, I kept a 1.5 liter bottle of Fiji water on hand from which I sipped regularly. I didn't see her drink anything during the entire session. On the last day, I caught a glimpse of her arms and legs which were scaly and clearly parched. As we hugged goodbye at the close of the meeting, I begged her to start drinking more water. The look on her face let me know that she understood exactly what I meant. She confessed that drinking water was an opportunity for her then vowed to take better care of herself. Like Sarah, her face showed signs of premature aging that I'm certain will correct itself if her water intake increased.
What's most interesting to me about this article is the amount of water Sarah drank. I have this theory that various level of water intake provide different benefits. If we only drink a couple of cups a day (like Sarah did pre-experiment). The benefits are minimal. We are able to stay alive. Basic functions are operating, but at the same time, our health is impacted. Then, as we increase our water to maybe 1 liter or 2, we start feeling better. Toxins are eliminated at a faster rate. Things get better. But when we veer into the territory that lies just beyond 2 litters (up to a gallon a day), then something wonderful happens. Our bodies have enough resources to deal with the pressing health issues. Then finds that it can also focus on what I call "beauty benefits."
Beauty benefits are when your skin starts to clear up, your scalp isn't as dry as it used to be, your nails grow in nicely, your hair flourishes and you have an all over glow. Who wouldn't want that? I know you want that.....don't you?
Then drinking your effin' water.
