Water – The Elixir of Life

30 Mar

Today’s message was written by Dr. Jerry Graham on a subject near and dear to my heart as a physician – Wellness. Jerry and his wife Sharon are the most experienced Wellness coaches I have ever personally known.

“We have made the mistake of assuming that because water is freely available and costs nothing, the body cannot possibly fall short of it. I believe that most physical pains are signals that the body needs rehydrating-and that we ignore these signals at our peril.” Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj

How much water do you drink on an average day?

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21; NKJ)

Friday, we were excited to announce our coming e-book and seven-part webinar series on one of our most impassioned topics — wellness! To review, Dr. Randy Peck, MD (we felt it good to have a doctor along for a wellness series), Sharon (who is a RN), and I have teamed up and will be conducting an interview-style weekly webinar to lead you through the six major factors that determine a person’s wellness. This first webinar will be an overview of the entire series and is open to all who can attend for no charge whatsoever. You simply need to be at your computer so you can participate in the roll out. The big day and time is next Wednesday, April 1, at high noon EDT. Put it on your calendar and reserve the hour. To register for the webinar, CLICK HERE.

The first major factor to wellness is to drink more water than you already do. How’s that for simple? Notice that I didn’t say how many glasses or ounces of water you need to drink every day, although there are some guidelines that the experts suggest. But we’re into simple here. And to keep it simple, just drink more. Drink more this week than you did last week. I didn’t even say how much more. You decide. It’s really up to you how fast you want to reach your desired wellness goal.

So, if you’re only drinking one glass of water a day on average, make it two this week-or even one and a half. I’ll guarantee you that’s a step in the right direction. Just keep doing those little steps on a consistent basis, and before you know it, they will have added up to a giant step or two.

Why water? Well, if you really want to know, go read Sharon’s 11/1/07 DG entitled, “Elixir of Life!” and then read the link. And for further reinforcement, read her 11/8 DG “More Elixir Please” and associated link. It’s all good information, but to simplify all that great advice, just drink a little more water than you did last week and you’ll be on your way to great health.

The second major factor? Tune in tomorrow. See you then. In the meantime, have a drink on me (of water that is). And don’t forget to register for the Wellness Webinar at the link below.

Prayer Power
Father, we’re truly excited about the webinar that is now just two days away. We pray that those who will register to come are the very ones who will be most excited about wellness and are actively seeking answers.

It is easy, fun, and will inspire others.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
