Core Principle 6

Good hydration - drink plenty of clean water

Drinking lots of water is an essential element of a nutritious diet. Think about it, you can live for two to three months without food, but you will die after just two or three days without water. Water is seriously important stuff. Roughly 60% of a human body is made up of water, so don’t underestimate your need to hydrate well every day.

Most of your brain is made of water, your skin has high water content and half of your blood is water. Water is a major component of all human body organs, and without water intake, you will go from perfectly healthy to dead in approximately three days. Among other things, water regulates body temperature, aids digestion, mineral absorption and bowel function, helps to lubricate joints, aids cell regeneration and helps your body to manufacture vital hormones.

Water is vital to life, and vital to feeling good and functioning well. The acute symptoms of dehydration include headaches, irregular sleep, tiredness, loss of strength and energy, weariness, constipation, dry flaky skin and scalp, mental confusion, depression, muscle cramps, sunken eyes, lethargy, fever, dizzyness, loss of orientation, vomiting, low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, palpitations, loss of consciousness, multiple organ failures and death.

Quench that thirst, often.


It is quite incredible how fast dehydration can wipe you out. You can literally go from 100% healthy, through this whole list to death all in under four days, and then that’s it, game over. So don’t under estimate the importance of good hydration if you want abundant healthy living! If mild dehydration can cause headaches, tiredness, lethargy, weariness, loss of strength, constipation and depression, it seems that good hydration may well be the cure to many mild cases of these conditions. So ensure you get at least two litres of water every day, more if you are exercising or if it is hot weather and you are sweating a lot. Good hydration is an essential cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle.
