What Are Symptoms Of Compromised Hydration
Signs of dehydration are many. Energy loss is usually the first sign of dehydration because the cells lose water first. Water is a primary driving force of energy production inside the cells, so even a little water loss causes a big drop in energy. Some say that for every one percent drop of water inside your cells that energy production is cut by 10%.
Other symptoms include:
Researchers who study hydration suggest that compromised hydration is at the core of serious health problems. Some suggest that good hydration can aid in the cure of arthritis, back pain, angina, migraines, colitis, asthma, high blood pressure, adult-onset diabetes, high cholesterol, metabolism problems, weight loss, kidneys, joint problems, lower back problems, morning sickness, heartburn, arthritis, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, loss of libido and other chronic and degenerative diseases. Some health care researchers suggest that chronic conditions are caused by compromised hydration.
Effectiveness Of Traditional Parkinsons Treatments
The problem with many pharmaceutical treatments currently being used to treat Parkinsons disease is they can lose effectiveness over time. Combined with the side effects of many medications on the market today, a lack of effective drug treatments has patients seeking alternatives to these medications or at least new ways to reduce the dosages of medications they must take.
More On My Daily Wellness Regimeby Leonie
A couple of weeks ago I started by giving you my morning wellness routine..theres more
In addition to the early morning routine I do take various herbs and homeopathic for maintenance of the body systems as needed. More on this subject in future blogs.
As I have a busy work schedule I do not get the time to make a fresh green smoothie as often as I would like so the superfood drink is an easy way to ensure I am getting adequate intake of the essential nutrients needed daily – in a concentrated form, derived from whole foods. I am using Activated Nutrients brand currently, and loving it!
Did you know that more than 90% of Australians do NOT consume adequate fruit and vegetables
As well at that I eat plenty of organic fruit and vegetables with my meals and I am fortunate to live in a regional area where I can have a couple of cattle and a few sheep to keep the grass down and they then become a healthy source of protein when the time is right.

What Habits Contribute To Compromised Hydration
We drink soft drinks, sport drinks, energy drinks, vitamin waters, juice, milk, tea, coffee, and alcoholic beverages. These popular drinks may be enjoyable but are they providing the adequate body hydration that is the foundation of health and vitality? The answer is no.
Soft drinks, both colas and uncolas, have no real nutritional value. Acids are used to carbonate soft drinks and chemicals are often used to flavor these beverages. Damage to your teeth and weaker bones may result with extensive use. The carbohydrates in soft drinks have the effect of slowing down the absorption of water in the body. Soft drinks promote weight gain. The diet soft drinks contain unhealthy sweeteners and additives.
Coffee and tea, both diuretics, tend to promote water loss. A diuretic is any substance that tends to increase the flow of urine which causes the body to get rid of excess water. The term diuretic suggests that the kidneys are required to take more water out of your bloodstream even as you are taking water into your digestive system by drinking. If you add milk, sugar or chocolate to your coffee or tea, the rate of water absorption is reduced further.
Juices, which could be categorized as food, have carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes but are not the best thirst quencher. Undiluted juice also has fructose which reduces the rate that the cells can absorb water even further. The result is that cells arent hydrated very quickly.

Pharmacokinetic Profiles Of Cpc
The blood pharmacokinetics of CPC in different ratios were monitored in healthy C57BL/6 mice. Blood samples were withdrawn from the retro-orbital sinus and collected into heparinized microcentrifuge tubes at 0.1, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, 24 h after intravenous injection of CPC . After each sampling, 100 L of dextrose-normal saline was administered to prevent changes in the central compartment volume and electrolytes. The pharmacokinetics profile of CPC in the bloodstream was finally evaluated by measuring the curcumin content in blood over the course of 24 h via fluorescence spectrophotometry measurement after decomposing the blood samples by aqua regia. The curcumin content in the plasma was measured according to reported methods . Briefly, the plasma was separated by centrifuging the blood samples and stored at -20 °C until analysis. The supernatant was transferred into a 96-well plate for determination of fluorescence at the excitation wavelength of 414 nm and the emission wavelength of 450 nm. The percentage of the injected dose in the blood over time, the area under the plasma concentration-time curve , and the half-life time were calculated. The results were evaluated using the Kinetica software package :
ID %/g = / Wbody× 100
AUC0 = AUC0t +Ct / Ke
t1/2 = 0.693 / k1
k1 = 2.303 × /
Here, k1 is the first-order kinetic constant, and C1 and C2 are the curcumin concentrations in blood plasma at times t1 and t2, respectively .

Parkinsons Symptoms Managed Using Aquatic Therapy
Independence is a constant concern among Parkinsons patients and their family members, especially as the disease progresses. So they can maintain their independence longer, aquatic therapy specifically assists patients in the following:
- Maintaining or regaining strength
- Reducing rigidity
- Increasing acceptance of physical activity
For Parkinsons patients, aquatic therapy can mitigate the above key concerns so patients can maintain or regain their independence.
Is aquatic therapy safe for Parkinsons? Warm-water therapies with temperatures between 90 and 92 degrees Fahrenheit offer patients the opportunity to work out in a protected environment, offering them reduced rigidity and increased body control. The other benefit of warm-water therapies for Parkinsons patients is a reduction of shivering compared to cold water treatments along with a reduction of pain, which makes exercising more pleasurable.
One study discovered Parkinsons patients experienced significant improvements in postural stability as a result of aquatic therapy. A separate study, conducted in 2012, found patients who participated in aquatics enjoyed improvements in:
- Stride length

Why Were The Aquas Created
Most people believe that drinking more water will insure that they do not become dehydrated. Life would be simple if this were true. Unfortunately, this is a myth.
Scientists have known for years that drinking more water does not necessarily ensure that cells in the body have enough fluids to function and thrive. It is not only how much water you drink but how well you absorb and metabolize water that counts. As people age the problem of dehydration becomes worse. The consequences are disease and illness, wrinkles, bagging skin and more.
AQUAS were originally developed to help the performance of athletes. Dr. Boublik was able to run the marathon in his own record time because of the amazing benefits of what is now known as the AQUAS. This is why Dr. Jaroslav Boublik, a Ph.D. medical researcher, collaborated with Leonie Hibbert, a natural health therapist to refine and manufacture a product they now call the AQUAS, a perfect name for a perfect solution.
AQUAS were designed to help to re-set the master control system in the body to regulate the amount of water that is in the cells. This formula was created to invigorate the bodys natural thirst reflex. AQUAS make optimal hydration possible for persons of all ages whether they are well or ill.

Preparation And Characterization Of The Cpc Nanoparticles
CPC NPs were prepared by addition of PS 80 to the lipid-curcumin thin film at different weight ratios of PS 80/CFL using a thin-film hydration method in combination with sol-gel reaction and self-assembly process. Table 1 shows the hydrodynamic diameters, zeta potentials, drug encapsulation efficiencies and drug loading contents . The addition of PS 80 had little effect on the particle size, and the hydrodynamic diameters of all CPC NPs with different PS 80 contents were about 110 nm. Additionally, the zeta potentials were -34.5 ± 2.9, -25.0 ± 0.9 and -16.5 ± 0.8 mV for curcumin cerasomes, 5% PS 80 CPC NPs and 10% PS 80 CPC NPs, respectively. 10% PS 80 CPC exhibited a lower absolute zeta potential than CPC with less PS 80, resulting in an increase in negative charge.

Problems With Profound Dehydration As A Marathon Athlete Led To Neuroendrocinologist Jaroslav Boublik To Investigate A Herbal Formula Developed By Naturopath Leonie Hibbert Success With This Led To A Research And Development Partnership That Is Now Investigating A Holistic Scientific Approach To Cellular Hydration At A Fundamental Level
For over ten years I lived my life in the regimented world of modern scientific research. I travelled widely, specialised in neuroendocrinology the study of the central nervous system hormones and their receptors and achieved various honours in my profession, including a Fulbright Fellowship and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Salk Institute in San Diego. This was my life and there was never a moment that I doubted my passion or belief in science and what it could enable us to do.
But I had no idea at the time in my life was to be turned upside down. It began in late 1992, during my preparation for the Melbourne Marathon, which was to be run in June the following year. I was experiencing real difficulty. During training runs I was struggling at about the 20km point despite drinking along the way and attempting to preload with water and sports drinks prior to the runs. I would suffer profound dehydration. The common term is hit the wall and hit it I did! No matter what I did I wasnt able to keep sufficient fluids in my body I would lose all energy and have to stop the runs. To say this was frustrating is an understatement. I began to doubt my ability to achieve the goal I had set myself. My wife was seeing a natural health therapist, Leonie Hibbert. She suggested that I see Leonie Hibbert because she had some interesting formulas which were a combination of herbs, and other things I didnt understand, that night be able to help me.

Summer Is The Time When We Need Extra Vigilance Re: Our Hydration
Gosh what a hot start to the Australian summer we have had! Whilst hydration is a lifelong issue…..it is often at this time of year that we are more acutely aware of implications. I have been watching the Australian Open Tennis this week, only to see several of the spectators falling about from being overheated and obviously dehydrated. The tennis players often better as they attend to their hydration continually. If you are drinking lots of water but not feeling satiated you are displaying symptoms of compromised hydration and may need more than just water!

WHAT IS HYDRATION?
HYDRATION is your body’s ability to absorb and utilise WATER in the tissues down to the cellular level and is a major issue in managing our wellness. Tissue under stress from injury, load, or lack of movement dehydrates.
The organic crystalline structures in our bodies have the capacity to generate and conduct electrical fields. The more hydrated the tissue the better it performs its electrical duties. These duties include the ionic bonding, transfer of nutrients, and wastes, and the conducting of neural transmissions. A 10% change in water content can trigger a million fold change in charge transport along a protein.

What Will Happen To Me When I Begin Taking The Aquas
People react differently depending on their personal health history. Our experience at Zero Point Healers is that some clients feel the positive effects of the AQUAS immediately. Others initially experience the effects of releasing toxins from their bodies. These people may experience one or more symptoms such as headaches, nausea and fatigue. Emotions that have not been experienced for a long time may be felt as our bodies wake up and begin to function at their peak potential.
These re-balancing effects are perfectly natural and temporary the expected response to any detoxification process. With a well hydrated body there is finally sufficient water to remove toxins that are lodged in the tissues.
Detoxification symptoms are more common in people who are unwell. It generally takes a few days for these detoxification effects to subside or for heightened emotions to lose their intensity. Physical and emotional effects can feel unfamiliar in the beginning. As the fluids in the body strive for balance, the effects of detoxification generally disappear.
John Coleman, a naturopathic doctor in Melbourne, Australia, recommends that anyone diagnosed with Parkinsons should start with a baseline of one drop per day in the morning and evening. If side effect symptoms are too overpowering, a further dilution may be needed. Extensive information about diluting AQUAS can be found in John Colemans book, Stop Parkin and Start Livin: Reversing the Symptoms of Parkinsons Disease.
Fluorescence Observation And Measurement Of The Cell Uptake Of Curcumin
0.1, 4, 8, 12, 24 and 48 h after treatment, the basolateral SH-SY5Y cells were collected into EP tubes by centrifugation , washed with PBS, and fixed by 4% cold PFA for 10 min at 4 °C. The fixed cells were washed and resuspended in PBS. To compare the permeability of curcumin through the B.End.3-estabilished BBB model, the curcurmin fluorescence per 10,000 cells was measured by fluorescence spectrophotometry. After 48-h CPC treatment, the fluorescence uptake was observed upon CLSM . The cells were washed with PBS and fixed by PFA for 10 min, and then washed in the same way. The cell nuclei were stained with DAPI to localize the cells.
