13 Common Disorders Possibly Caused By Lack Of Water



By Lindsay Sibson

I’m going to assume that this isn’t the first time you are reading an article about WATER.

There certainly isn’t a lack of information regarding how VITAL drinking water is to your overall health and wellness. Yet, many people I know (and perhaps you too) still do not drink enough water throughout the day.

If you or someone you know says, “I KNOW I should be drinking more water…” you are certainly going to want to chug down a huge glass of H2O after reading just what can happen when your body has a lack of water.

13 Disorders Caused By Lack Of Water

Fatigue And Loss Of Energy
  • Dehydration of the tissues causes enzymatic activity to slow down.
  • Just a 1-2% drop in your body’s water can impair your thinking and cause you to feel tired.
Obesity And Excess Weight
  • Chewed food contains too much liquid to allow stools to properly form, so the wall of the colon reduces it.
  • When you are chronically dehydrated, the colon takes too much water in order to give it to other parts of your body.
  • Lack of water = lack of lubrication in your system.
Acid-Alkaline Imbalance
  • Dehydration activates an enzymatic slowdown, which produces acidification.
  • When your body is too acidic, it increases your risk for diseases such as cancer.
  • Your body needs enough moisture to sweat 20-24 ounces of water, which is the necessary amount to dilute toxins so they do not irritate the skin.
Premature Aging
  • As a newborn, your body was 80% liquid. As you age, that number decreases to about 70% and continues to decrease the older you become.
  • Your skin is your largest organ and requires adequate water in order to stay supple and smooth.
  • Dehydration abnormally increases the concentration of toxins in your cellular and blood fluids.
  • Pain increases in proportion to the concentration of these toxins.
Urinary Infections/ Cystitis
  • Your urine contains toxins and when they are not sufficiently diluted, they attack your urinary mucous membranes.
Gastritis And Stomach Ulcers
  • Your stomach protects its mucous membranes from being destroyed by acidic digestive fluids by producing a layer of mucous, which requires water.
Respiratory Troubles
  • Mucous membranes of the respiratory area are slightly moist to protect your respiratory tract from substances that may be present in the air you breathe in.
Digestive Disorders
  • Chronic dehydration causes your body to secrete less digestive juices that are necessary to properly break down, digest and absorb the nutrients from your food.
  • Dehydration causes too much liquid to drain from inside your cells.
  • The body tries to stop this loss by producing more cholesterol.
High And Low Blood Pressure
  • The body’s blood volume is not enough to completely fill the entire set of arteries, veins and capillaries. Therefore, water helps make up for this lack in volume. When there isn’t enough of it, your blood pressure is directly impacted.

How To Avoid These 13 Disorders Caused By Lack Of Water

The plain and simple answer is to DRINK MORE WATER.

However, if you are currently not in the habit of consistently drinking water throughout the day, embrace these 3 tips that can help you keep hydrated and healthy:

1. Wake & Water: Set a 16 ounce glass of water next to your bed and commit to finishing it before you get out of bed.

2. Reuse & Refill: Purchase a glass refillable water bottle that you can take with you on-the-go and into the office. Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to drink up!

3. Spruce It Up: Brew herbal tea and drink hot or cold, add fruit slices to your water, or squeeze in a few drops of stevia.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
