Got this email recently from Craig Watts, one of my room-mates from Shenton Park Hospital who, like me, had a severe stroke which left him partly paralysed. This information on the benefits of water may well save lives, so please read careful and pass it on to whoever you feel might benefit. Over to you, Craig! “Heart Attack and Water” by Craig Watts How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night ??? Heart Attack and Water – I never knew all of this! Interesting……. I asked my Doctor why do people need to urinate so much at nighttime? Answer from my Cardiac Doctor –
“Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are standing (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc.) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!” I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water. Very Important: From A Cardiac Specialist! “Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs, 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion, 1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure, 1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack” I can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. A Cardiologist has stated that if each person who received this information, emailed it to 10 people, one life could probably be saved! I have already shared this information. What about you?
