Cellular Dehydration – Major Cause of Gout and other Disease?

By August 26, 2022August 28th, 2022No Comments4 min read

Maintaining proper hydration is essential for keeping our bodies healthy. Our bodies contain 25% solid stuff and 75% water. In addition to controlling billions of other bodily processes, water is required for nutrient absorption, waste elimination, and bodily hydration. When minerals and water combine to form electrolytes, cellular fluids, and tissue balance, hydration occurs. This equilibrium is necessary to protect our cells’ electrical charge as well as to keep the pH of our tissues and cells at a healthy level.

Unbelievably many people are cellularly severely dehydrated and are completely unaware of it. Many people think that drinking coffee, tea, juice, soft drinks, and even alcohol hydrates them. Nothing is more false than it is. In fact, all of the aforementioned drinks have the potential to dehydrate you. These drinks have a diuretic effect that stimulates the body to flush out excess water rather than hold onto it. Congestive heart failure, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, kidney failure, hypothyroidism, and a host of other illnesses can be brought on by irregular fluid levels.

Our bodies’ processes and the upkeep of our cells’ architecture depend on water. Nutrients, hormones, and other substances are all transported by water. Histamine is released when there is chronic dehydration to make sure the organs have enough water to function. If we don’t provide the body the water it needs, it will have to get it from somewhere else—from its own reserves. One may experience symptoms of allergies, asthma, constipation, colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic pain and inflammation that manifests itself in different ways, such as a migraine headache, when histamine becomes overactive.


How is dehydration related to joint pain?

Since cartilage is primarily made of water, as these surfaces move past one another, cells may deteriorate. These injured cells are expected to be replaced by new cartilage, but water is needed to transport the nutrients required to carry out the repair. This can swiftly worsen into problems that cause joint discomfort or chronic joint pain. In terms of gout, enough hydration is necessary to help the body rid itself of uric acid through urination and bowel movements.


Cellular dehydration can negatively impact just about every part of the body. These imbalances can cause:

  • Pain: Joint pain, Muscle Pain, Headaches, Arthritis, Brittle Bones
  • Skin: Itchy, Dry, Psoriasis, Eczema
  • Hair: Dry, Coarse, Alopecia
  • Nails: Dry and Brittle
  • Eyes: Dry and Irritated
  • Colon: IBS, Constipation, Colitis
  • Lungs: Asthma Immune System: Allergies
  • Digestive System: Acid Reflux and Ulcers
  • Mental Health: Depression and Mood Swings
  • Blood Sugar Imbalances: Type 2 Diabetes and Hypoglycaemia
  • Heart: Abnormal Blood Pressure and Abnormal Cholesterol
  • Weight Change
  • Kidneys: Fluid Retention


Well being: Poor Sleep, Low Energy, Food Cravings (sugar)

You are already dehydrated when you feel thirsty. All of the aforementioned symptoms indicate probable dehydration. With sufficient water intake, mild to moderate instances can typically be resolved. The treatment of severe dehydration can be more difficult. The body has already reached a point of chronic electrolyte imbalance, so simply drinking the recommended amount of water won’t necessarily cure this illness. Replacement of water and electrolytes will be required at this point to rectify. For someone who DOES NOT have a hydration issue, distilled and reverse osmosis water supplies may be helpful in short-term applications. As they serve as diuretics and tend to force minerals out of the body, these water sources could be employed for a brief cleansing period. It is crucial to go with a decent, pure filtered water option when dehydration is present. Avoid being duped by healthier-sounding replacements, like Vitamin water. To assist correct the electrolyte imbalance, you can safely consume high-quality coconut water, yogurt, and cottage cheese in moderation. A highly effective home treatment is supposed to consist of mixing one teaspoon of fenugreek powder into one cup of full-fat yogurt.

Make sure to use high-quality salt when eating fresh (NOT processed) foods. Don’t use table salt. Taking an Epsom salt bath can also help to absorb magnesium via the skin and as a bonus can help relieve the discomfort, soreness, and inflammation associated with chronic dehydration.

The amount of water that each person needs to drink should be increased up during periods of water loss, such as perspiration, to approximately 1/2 oz per pound of body weight.
