An estimated 75 percent of North Americans are chronically dehydrated and fail to drink the minimum amount of water the6y need per day!

The old adage of 8 glasses a day is no longer true. Rather, think about how much you weigh and divide that number in half. That's how many ounces of water you should drink per day!For instance, a person who is 200 pounds, should drink 100 oz. of water per day to be adequately hydrated. (That's 12.5 glasses of water!)
An athlete with a high level of muscle mass should drink even more, about two-thirds of their body weight in ounces per day. If you live in higher altitudes like I do currently, it may take more then that ratio to compensate for "altitude sickness", so I recommend the two thirds ratio as a guide. I met a college student recently, who moved to a higher elevation to attend college and he said he drank three times more water to function then he did at his home elevation state. Remember, you can dehydrate quicker at higher altitudes as well!

Thirst isn't always a reliable gauge of the body's need for water, especially in children and older adults.Drink frequently throughout the day. To test, stick out you arm and slightly pinch your skin with your fingers and lift. If you see what the medical profession called "tenting", you are dehydrated. Your skin should be tight enough not to tent and spring back. Your urine should be clear, not amber or bright yellow Some supplements, such as Vit B, medications and food that can discolor your urine. .

Drinking enough water is age defying as well. Not only does it hydrate and sooth your internal organs, but it smooths out wrinkles to make you more youthful looking, rather then shallow with dark circles. And you do not smoke right? Right! Smoking and drinking alcohol dehydrates your body and your body doesn't assimilate the much needed nutrients from your food!

Not all fluids are created equal

Many people believe all liquids supply adequate hydration or don't like to drink water so thinking they are compensating, yes, will drink other products. Yes, there are some people do not like water, more about that later.
Some beverages tend to dehydrate because of their caffeine and sugar content. Caffeine has a diuretic effect on the body, which makes you urinate more frequently than you usually need to–very counter-productive to proper hydration. Drinks such as coffee, milk and juice all require water from the body to be properly digested. Alcohol and some medications can lead to increased fluid loss as well. I don't advocate the use of the very popular energy and sports drinks, many contain ingredients that can counteract with medications, or casuse an allergy. A GREAT isotonic beverage is unsweetened coconut juice. Great for after exercising, surgeries, or just a refreshing addition to your nutritional program. Great for digestion. Watch the natural sugar intake as it is usually 10 grams of sugar in it. (divide grams of sugar by four to know how many teaspoons of sugar you are ingesting. It is always better to eat frutose with the fiber)

Mild to moderate dehydration symptoms include

Dry, sticky mouth
Sleepiness or tiredness — children are likely to be less active than usual
Decreased urine output — no wet diapers for three hours for infants and eight hours or more without urination for older children and teens
Few or no tears when crying
Mood changes
Dry skin
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Muscle and joint pain
Distracted thoughts

Keeping your body hydrated can actually elimate these problems if dehydration is the reason. A woman reported some of these very symptoms to me and when I suggested she drink more water, she looked at me with disbelief and said, "It can't be THAT simple! Oh, yes, but it can be!

Severe dehydration, a medical emergency, can cause:

Extreme thirst
Extreme fussiness or sleepiness in infants and children; irritability and confusion in adults
Very dry mouth, skin and mucous membranes
Lack of sweating
Little or no urination — any urine that is produced will be dark yellow or amber
Sunken eyes
Shriveled and dry skin that lacks elasticity and doesn't "bounce back" when pinched "tenting"
In infants, sunken fontanels — the soft spots on the top of a baby's head
Low blood pressure
Rapid heartbeat
Rapid breathing
No tears when crying
In the most serious cases, delirium or unconsciousness

When to see a doctor

If you're a healthy adult, you can usually treat mild to moderate dehydration by drinking more water.

Get immediate medical care if you develop severe signs and symptoms such as extreme thirst, a lack of urination, shriveled skin, dizziness and confusion.

Now... what about hypnosis and drinking water?

Healthy Helpful Hypnosis is a perfect modality to assist you in drinking more water, enjoying drinking water and help to eliminate cravings for harmful drinks such as soda, and to eliminate poor nutritional habits while encouraging you to make better choices toward making decisions for a healthier lifestyle. Hypnosis makes life so much easier. Why struggle to lose weight, stop smoking, or other changes you want to make, when it is so much easier to use hypnosis and be hypnotized by me?

Affirmation for Change, Abundance and Rebirthing


What I have written here is called an affirmative prayer, which concentrates on the positivity and declaration that what you desire is already manifested. Countless times you have heard that our thoughts make our reality..and it is so!

That is why hypnosis is so vital. It is a method of tapping into our intuition, or the higher self mind if you will. Hypnosis is a perfectly nature and scientifically proven modality to assist you, medically, emotionally, energically (spiritually).

Our body listens to our words and follows direction, so it is important to monitor and reteach yourself how to speak in a positive manner. The universal energy is neutral. It responses to our deepest thoughts, desires and intents.

Have you wondered sometimes, that while saying affirmative statements time and again not achieving your desires results? Think on this for a moment. You write out your desire, repeat it endlessly until it may even become a mantra, but in between those times, negativity seeps through....perhaps out of habit. Example. You declare: I am abundant! Then you may say, "Oh, I don't have any money to buy that." "I can't afford ____." Another, "I want a relationship", then you may say something like, "Men (women) don't treat me nice, they are stupid...have no clue...etc.", see what I mean? You negate what you are declaring for your good and canceling out the energy of your intent. The universe was created to support you in any way that you need. Yes, really! So, monitor your thoughts for the next three days and catch yourself when you say something contrary to your desire. You may be surprised.

We each have the innate ability to heal ourselves in mind, body and spirit. We just have to guide ourselves back to our original state. That is what I do. I like to call myself a facilitator of the subconscious mind, guiding and redirecting you through your conscious mind to help to eliminate negative thoughts, belief systems, trauma...etc., that hinder your progress to live a life worth living, to fully express yourself through happiness to be a fully realized human being. Read that again...A life worth living, to fully express yourself through happiness, to be a fully realized human being. This is NOW, not some philosophy that promises this in the future..your future is now.

Read this daily or as often during the day as you can, develop the habit of positive thinking which translates into positive living. You deserve it. You are worth it. You really are magnificent!

You may copy this and use this as a daily affirmation. A gift. Feel free to revise some of the words that fits you better, I use spirit, perhaps you have another word for the energy of the universe.

I ask that if you use it anywhere that you do include my name, etc.



Today is the day that all things happen for my highest good

Right now, the universe is over flowing with abundant blessings directed specifically for me.

The right people, circumstances and everything I need is coming my way because I believe it and declare it with the passion of my deepest desire.

As I move forward in knowing that I am a unique spark in the universal consciousness,

My life is transforming, pushing forward, birthing, propelling in concert with the natural forces that I am harnessing, the energies of the moment.

I release my word into the law of attraction and call it done.

It is as I say that it is.

I am Peace in every step

I am Relaxed, feeling very comfortable in my body.

I am Moving with the Flow of The Force

I am enjoying the pleasures of friendships, family and colleagues

I am absolutely joyful in every thing I do

I receive and accept with grace all good things.

I am content and fulfilled.

I am enjoying everything I do with peace and harmony

I am the music and the song of life and laughter

I am Self Assured

I am Clarity of Mind

I am Love in Action

I am Blessed with each and every breath

I am Gratitude

I am that I am.

Spirit is all there is. Spirit is my total source of supply.

Divine consciousness is in every place and every place,

there is no where Divine Consciousness is not.

Every cell, atom, microcosmic star dust within and around me dances

with healing on every level.

I am, whole, healthy and complete.
