Is your child drinking enough water? Most children don’t drink water from when they wake to when they go off to school. This state of dehydration may negatively affect academic performance. It is never too late to start encouraging your children and teens to drink more water. Hypnosis can help you and your children to increase your desire for water. Each sip of water can be refreshing, soothing and relaxing.
Does a Drink Of Water
Make Children Smarter?
What is the hydration status of healthy children in the United States? Preventing cellular dehydration is integral to hormonal, immune, neurological, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, muscle and skeletal function. So researchers recently got urine samples from a groups of 9 to 11 year olds in LA and Manhattan on their way to school to see how they were doing.
The urine from nearly 2/3’s of the kids was considered too concentrated, an indicator that they were dehydrated. Why? They weren’t drinking enough water. Three quarters of the kids did not drink water between when they woke up and when they went off to school.
But most ate breakfast, so they must have been drinking something. The problem is that other beverages are not as hydrating. The levels of sodium, sugars, and amino acids in milk and juice can shrink cells and trigger the release of the hormone that signals dehydration.
The water content of plant foods may help explain why those eating plant-based diets are, on average, so slim. Like fiber, water is like a source of Nutrition Without Calories. Juice and milk may not be as hydrating as water.
According to Mayo Clinic, water is your body’s principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.
Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don’t have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired.
So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.
When I weighed over 100 pounds more than I do now I practically prided myself on the fact that I did not drink water for days at a time. Of course I was pre-diabetic, I had high blood pressure and I was sick a lot. With hypnosis for weight loss I took off the 100 pounds, started drinking water and exercising and I am no longer dealing with health issues like diabetes and high blood pressure. It is exciting to me when children and adults tell me that they are using self hypnosis to create the desire and behavior to drink lots of water.
