Common Symptoms of Dehydration
Fatigue - Dehydration causes enzymatic activity to slow down.
Constipation - During dehydration, the colon removes more water than normal in order to provide it for other parts of the body.
Digestive disorders - Dehydration reduces the secretion of digestive juices. This can be the root of heartburn, gastritis, and ulcers.
High blood pressure - The body's blood volume is mostly water. Dehydration results in thicker blood which is more difficult to pump.
Cholesterol - Dehydration results in cellular water loss. The body produces more cholesterol in an attempt to seal off water loss.
Respiratory troubles - A large amount of water is lost during breathing. Dehydration results in restricted airways in an attempt to reduce water loss.
Acid-alkaline imbalance - Dehydration significantly reduces the body'sability to remove acidic wastes.
Skin disorders - The skin is the body s largest detoxification pathway. Lackof water restricts the movement of toxins through the skin and also results in premature wrinkling.
Liver, kidney, bladder problems - The liver, kidneys, and bladder all require copious amounts of water for detoxification. Dehydration increases the concentration of the toxins these organs must eliminate.
Joint problems - Cartilage is mainly water. Dehydration increases abrasive damage and delays repair.
Premature aging - The body of a newborn child is over 90 % water. The amount of water declines with age.
