As an EFT practitioner, I'm always urging clients to drink plenty of water before, during and after their sessions.
We say, "energy moves on water". Some quick facts about the amount of water in your body:
--On average, our bodies are 60% water; a little higher %age for men,
a little lower for women
--The brain is about 70% water
--Our blood is over 80% water
--Even our bones have
So you see, we need plenty of water for our bodies and brains to work well.
being just a little low on water really make a difference? We don't notice it if we're just 1 or 2% low, do we?
Think again. A couple of studies at UConn, done on both young men and young women, find that even mild dehydration can negatively affect mood, energy and our ability
to think clearly.
The researchers found that a loss of only 1.5% of the body's water supply can have that effect
on us. Problem is, thirst isn't triggered until we lose 1-2% of our water, so by the time you're thirsty, you're already
behind the curve. And the effects seemed to be more pronounced with women who were mildly dehydrated than with men.
Ideally, then, we should be drinking enough so that we don't feel thirsty. That will keep us maximally hydrated.
But, of course, real life is different.
So next time you're feeling cranky, grab a glass of water and do a round
of tapping to get back in balance. Gives a whole new meaning to tap/water, right?
Meridian tapping techniques are currently considered experimental by Western
medicine. Studies are underway to assess the biological and psychological changes that are being self-reported.
