The Body’s Dehydration Management Programs

The second group of conditions that represent indicators of dehydration are the body’s dehydration management programs.  There are five distinct conditions that denote states of dehydration and operative rationing processes that can be corrected easily.  The sixth in this group consists of a number of conditions that have been classified as auto-immune diseases, but should be looked at as a sort of cannabilistic process of resource management at the expense of the body’s own tissues brought about by chronic dehydration.  These conditions are:

   1. Asthma

2. Allergies

3. Hypertension

4. Constipation

5. Type II diabetes

6. Autoimmune diseases

7. Neurological conditions

Discussion:

– Histamine is produced by the body in response to dehydration, generating the emergency thirst signals and the beginning of water-rationing by the body

– Increased histamine release into the lungs causes spasms in the bronchioles, causing constriction of the  bronchioles and asthma

– Increased histamine production shuts off water to the eyes and sinuses, resulting in allergies.

– In periods  of dehydration, the blood vessels contract to compensate for decreased blood volume, resulting in higher blood pressure.

– In a dehydrated body, the first site for establishing water conservation is the skin.

– Diabetes seems to be the end result of water deficiency to the brain.

– During stressful periods, the brain relies upon glucose for 85% of its energy needs.  When this occurs, the brain receives what it needs, but the rest of the body responds to increased glucose by producing insulin.  Over the long run, this causes diabetes.
