You must have heard the cliché, “water is life”, right? Well, if you think about all that water means for the human body, it’s safe to say that the cliché could not be any truer. We, humans, comprise of 70% water, on average. Regardless of how astounding the proportion of water in the human body might be, the fact of the matter is that we actually start off as 99% water, as fetuses.
…. our health depends largely upon water.
As we age, the proportion of water in our body decreases, but the fact remains that we exist mostly as water throughout our lives. Bearing this in mind, it is safe to assume that our health depends largely upon water. Here are some interesting facts that explains the importance of water in the human body:
Water Needs to Flow
The most important thing that you need to understand about pure water is that it continuously flows. This is the reason why the water in rivers is pure while that in a stagnant pond is not. The same principle applies to the blood in our bodies as well.
Our blood is continuously flowing. If, for some reason, our blood becomes stagnant, as is the case in times of sickness, the scenario can be life threatening. When you take it all into perspective, it is safe to say that flowing is what life is about.
Did you think that it is food, only, that grants your body with the required energy and strength? If the answer is yes, then you are certainly mistaken. It’s because your body will not have any energy at all if it’s not being transported through your system.
Water transports energy throughout our body.
And how is energy transported through the body? Well, water plays a pivotal role in making it happen. Water (blood) transports energy throughout our body. This is the reason why people feel incredibly weakened when their blood pressure drops too much.

The Treatment to Illnesses
The medical community makes use of water for treating several illnesses. The experts in the field of homeopathy, in particular, hold water in very high regard. For those who do not already know, the roots of homeopathy go back to 370 BC, when Hippocrates wrote down many treatments, involving water, in his publications.
The same treatments have been promoted, throughout the ages, as the field came to be known as homeopathy. The biggest contribution to the field of Homeopathy, since Hippocrates, was made by a German named Samuel Hahnemann in the 19th century.
When you take it all into perspective, one might say that water has been used as medicine for as long as one can trace back.
Water is necessary for sustaining life on Earth. Without water, there would be no concept of life, which leads to conserving water being an important aspect in today’s lifetime. Regardless of how fortunate one might be with a tremendous access to it, the fact remains that water is not unlimited.
This is the reason why it is essential for us to be in full support of such organizations and individuals who campaign for keeping water clean and drinkable.
This is the reason why it’s essential for us to be in full support of such organizations and individuals who campaign for keeping water clean and drinkable. Moreover, considering the need of water preservation, a good amount of college students have shifted their focus to hydrology as their field of study. The increasing demand of hydrologists in the last decade proves that hydrology has not only become a great career choice, but also a necessity to conserve life on Earth.
