Spice up your drinking Water

Drinking the amount of water that your body needs is an essential part of keeping yourself in good shape all around. Staying hydrated has many benefits ranging from the skin's condition to cardiovascular health or even your muscles and joints function. Proper hydration also helps cleanse your body - inside and out.

Sometimes, however, it can be hard to keep up with the recommended eight eight-ounce cups a day, even more so if you prefer something with flavour. That’s where these natural water boosters come in. They are made out of fresh fruits, vegetables, or herbs and spices, with no added sugar, and come with some rewarding health benefits. Here’s how you can boost the flavour of your water, along with the health benefits below:

Cucumber – Cucumber is full of vitamin B, which is known to relieve feelings of anxiety and stress. It contains plenty of electrolytes and antioxidants, which help keep your hydration levels in check.

Fresh Mint Leaves – Stomach problems such as constipation or digestion can get soothed by adding some fresh mint leaves to your water. It does this by assisting in activating the saliva glands that produce digestive enzymes, making everything run smoothly.

Lemon – Get an immune boost from drinking some lemon water. It’s got a ton of vitamin C, and its acidity assists in the digestive tract’s function.

Cinnamon – Gases in the intestines get broken down by an agent found in cinnamon. It aids in easing symptoms of nausea and intestinal colic.

Ginger – Ginger is full of antioxidants. It helps keep cholesterol levels low and eases bloating and cramps by breaking down any excess gas.

Apple Cider Vinegar – Increase the amount of hydrochloric acid in your body and promote digestion by added 2 or 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your water.

Detox Water

These natural water boosters are also known popularly by another name: detox water. Detox water is known to boost the immune and digestive systems, improve mood and energy levels, and even help with weight loss. Here are some popular combinations of detox water: 

• Cucumber and mint 
• Blackberry and orange 
• Lemon and lime 
• Strawberry and basil 
 • Orange and lemon 
• Apple and cinnamon 
• Grapefruit and rosemary 
• Raspberry and cucumber 
• Lemon and ginger 
• Lemon and cayenne pepper 
• Watermelon and mint

Add any of these fresh ingredients into cold water and refrigerate for between 1 and 12 hours to let the nutrients and flavours infuse the water. For a quick infusion, crush the ingredients before adding them to the water. For a warm, tea-like beverage, add hot water instead.

Naturopathic Nutritional Medicine is an immensely powerful tool. It is consistent with and works well alongside modern biochemistry, which studies in detail the metabolism inside the cells. It looks at all the ways in which the nutrients interact with and support metabolic processes. Modern biochemistry makes it clear that the nutrients are all required together, not just as individual items. It addresses the balances between them and their actual availability inside the cells. It addresses the enzyme reactions that they support.

The joy of it all is that all this biochemical evidence is supportive of the working principles of the Naturopaths of the last few centuries, who have worked to support “The Life Force”. What is this “Life Force”? Insofar as it is a subtle force, as yet undetected by Science, it attracts the derision of the sceptics. But one can choose whether or not to regard this as a subtle force. If that does not fall within your belief system, then you can simply look at the energetic flux of chemical change within the cells and equate that with the Life Force.

The fact is that the healthy cell is characterised by an ebullient metabolism, a dynamic system of energetic processes fuelled by ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the “energy currency of the cell). The cell’s ability to manufacture and utilize ATP is determined by the integrity of its enzyme systems and its intracellular structures.

The whole strategy of Naturopathic Nutritional Medicine is aimed at normalizing and activating the cells’ own internal systems. If the cells, and therefore the body, are ailing and sluggish, it aims to return the cellular metabolism to normal, and so restore vitality and health. The orthodox nutritionist is seemingly fumbling and at a loss if asked to take any action towards restoring health. He knows not what to do. His training has certainly not informed him as to what to do unless it is a straightforward nutritional deficiency illness like scurvy or beri-beri. So, in most cases of ill health he or she is powerless.
