Importance of water in human body

All of us know that how much important the water is in our life. All the activities which a person does in everyday life routine are either one way or the other way related with water. We know that around 75% of the earth is water in the form of oceans, lakes, rivers, glaciers etc. Our body is made up mostly of water. Approximately 85% of our brain, 80% of our blood and 70% of our muscle is water. Every cell in our body needs water to live. So we can understand the importance of water. Water helps to remove the dangerous toxins that our body takes in from the air, the food and the chemicals we use on our skin and hair. Water also provides cushion for our body joints. Water carries oxygen and nutrients into all our cells. Water also helps to regulate our body temperature.

We need water to keep your metabolism working properly. We have to maintain certain level of water in our body if we don’t do so then this will result dehydration. Therefore it is easy to see why it is very important to drink six to eight glasses of water a day. If we do not have enough water then our blood pressure can fall to dangerously low levels. Blood clots may form. Our normal kidney function is impaired. You may get terrible constipation. Some other signals of having low water level are constipation, terribly dry skin, and increased incidence of urinary tract infections and reoccurring headaches. A popular way to reduce fever is to take a bath in cool water. This helps bring down our entire body temperature, thus reducing fever. This process is called hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is the use of hot or cold water to alleviate or relieve problems. These therapies include steam inhalation, cold compresses, hot baths, showers, steam baths, and whirlpools. The use of hot water helps to stimulate the immune system. It also increases our body’s circulation. After having hard workout people just take a steam bath or relax in a whirlpool. Cold water is used to reduce inflammation. When you are having sprain in your ankle, you use an ice pack to reduce the swelling. A cold water sitz bath is used to treat constipation, irregular vaginal discharge, hemorrhoids. Some treatments using alternating hot and cold water are to relieve upper respiratory problems, congestions, foot infections, and headaches.
