Water Benefits Health News, Issue #31

February 25, 2015


According to the American Heart Association (AHA), heart disease is still the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.

The good news is that there are 6 controllable risk factors, the keyword here being “controllable.” In other words, it is a lifestyle choice.

Many people don’t realize that chronic dehydration plays a significant role in the early onset of heart disease and specifically the top two risk factors: high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

The question we should all be asking is “How do we get high blood pressure or high cholesterol?” Obviously, this is a complex equation, but the simple answer (from my perspective) may not be what you expect.

Our feature article in this issue on Drinking Water for Heart Health explains how heart disease begins, what the 6 key risk factors are, and why drinking enough clean water daily can make a difference.

The sixth article in our Healthy Eating Nutrition series is “Simple Food Combining – 5 Guidelines for Optimal Health.”

You might be wondering how food combining relates to heart health? Following these food combining guidelines can help to keep the gut healthy. A healthy gut equates to cleaner, healthier blood. Healthy blood nourishes and protects the heart and the entire cardiovascular system.

To your health and wellness,
