Thanks to Dr. C and his regular talks on the 4 essentials to life for inspiring
this weeks blog!
We all know that without certain things in life, we cannot survive for
very long. They are of course our cell phones, tv...NOT! While we may
feel that we
need these things to live, there are really 4 things that are essential to
1) Water: The
Textbook of Medical Physiology states that "the total amount of water in a man of average weight
is approximately 40 liters, averaging 57% of his total body weight."
In other words, over half of you is water! And when it says water, it
means water! Not Coke, or Powerade, or energy drinks, etc. These will
dehydrate you by requiring more water from other parts of your body so
your stomach can digest them.
2) Food: Of course we need food! I could write a book about nutrition,
but one important illustration to remember is this: Fueling your body
is like fueling your car. The higher the quality and cleaner the fuel,
the better it works.
3) Oxygen: Duh!
4) Nerve Impulse: We all know we can't live without our brain right?
Our brain tells
everything in your body what/when/why/how to operate. How does it do that? Nerves
of course! And at True Wellness our excellent doctors do a fantastic job
of making sure those "pathways" of nerves running from your
brain to the rest of your body are unhindered!
