Do you keep putting on moisturiser, but your skin stays dry?
This is telling you that the cells of your body are also too dry and that you need to look more broadly and see if you have any other signs of dehydration, such as thirst, dry hair, dry mouth, throat or lips.
Curiously enough, some people will get dry without experiencing any significant thirst and at times the lack of water can hide itself deep within the body and hardly show itself at the surface.
The next “level” of bodily dehydration, typically manifests in symptoms such as: constipation, fatigue, irritability, excessive hunger, dizziness, heat, inflammation, night sweats, irregular menses, blocked sinus and nasal congestion.
As the dehydration acts ever more deeply, the symptoms move on to depression, ringing ears, haemorrhaging, headaches, poor sleep, blurred vision, shortness of breath, tooth decay, premature ageing, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neuron Disease.
Yes, your eyes deceive you not, these are hectic disorders of which we speak!
Heavy illnesses with which to live and sometimes by which to die.
Ancient systems of medicine, such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Unani-Tibb, Traditional
Greek Medicine and others have looked at each organ of the body to ascertain what it’s specific dry temperament or “syndrome” would look like and have come up with symptoms as diverse as:
Dry stomach – halitosis, hiccups, difficulty in swallowing, heartburn and/or stomach ulcers.
Dry Liver – low stamina and motivation, underweight, dizziness, blurred vision, headaches that drag on and on.
Dry Kidneys – itchy skin, scanty urination, ringing ears, insomnia, chronic fatigue and toothache.
Dry Heart – depression, anxiety, excitement, forgetfulness, irritability, hot spells, hypertension, night sweats and palpitations.
Dry Lungs – dry cough, loss of voice, nosebleed, chest pains, tidal fever and coughing up blood.
So how does one deal with dryness?
No matter in which organ, or how deep-set the dryness might already be, there are four steps that I recommend in regaining proper cellular rehydration.
