Many African American women suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes and cancer along with lamenting the fact that their hair won’t grow the way they want it to. Dehydration is often the reason for a series of disease processes as well as stunted hair growth. By the time you get thirsty and WANT water, your body is already dehydrated. It is estimated that the human body is 60-70% of an adult’s total body weight. It is important to replace water regularly throughout the day to replace that lost through breathing, urine and perspiration.
If we did not replace the water lost the body would not be able to survive, as the human body utilizes water in many ways.
Why You Need to Drink Water Regularly
Water cushions and lubricates joints; nourishes and protects the brain, spinal cord and other tissues; keeps the body’s temperature normal; and helps remove waste through perspiration, bowel movements and urination.
Water is more important for your body’s survival than food. You can live without water for approximately one week, but you can survive without food for more than a month. Lack of water (or dehydration), reduces the amount of blood in your body and makes blood thicker, forcing your heart to pump harder in order to deliver oxygen-bearing cells to your muscles.
In the early stages of dehydration, you can become dizzy, irritable, fluid retention and bloating, and experience headaches. As dehydration progresses, you become clumsy and exhausted, and suffer memory loss and an inability to concentrate. Your eyesight fades. In the last stages of dehydration, you may feel nauseous and begin vomiting. If you are dehydrated over a long period of time, you will suffer constipation and possibly kidney problems like stones. Without water, you will enter a coma and die.
Water consumption is not the same as drinking coffee, tea, soda or beer. To achieve the full health benefits that water delivers, you should be drinking water only – mineral water, spring water, artesian water, etc.

This makes sense. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain.
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.
