Throughout history, humans have held a strong reverence for water – rightfully so. Without this precious resource, life on Earth would cease to exist. The importance of water in the human body is unparalleled, making up about 60% of our physical form. Water is the key that helps every system in our bodies run smoothly. In a state of dehydration, the body cannot effectively carry out physiological processes which can contribute to a series of consequences to our health. Inadequate hydration also has consequences for our mental health, mood, and overall well-being. In order to raise our vitality, it is imperative that we keep in mind the effects of water on our bodies and work toward embracing this essential resource once again.

Unfortunately, as humanity has evolved, we have significantly lost our connection to the sacredness of water and its value in our lives. In the modern day, it is all too common that people turn on their sinks to fill a glass of water without thinking about where that water came from, what it contains, how clean it is, or what a blessing it is to have this resource right at our fingertips (as many people around the world do not). Frequently, people forget to drink water, don’t drink enough, or state that they don’t like drinking water at all and opt for other beverages such as soda. We also have the tendency to trust that these sources of water are free from toxins that can harm us in the long run, which is not always the case. These common patterns of thought wreak havoc on our health and only serve to deepen the disconnect between humans and water over time. How can we reclaim an honest connection to this vital resource?

As people living in the developed world, we have the profound gift of water accessibility from many different sources. Examples of these water sources include tap water, bottled water, home water filtration systems, reverse osmosis water, and spring water. With all of these different sources available to us, there is a strong lack of education regarding the quality of each source. Even worse, there is a lack of empowerment for people to seek out clean sources of drinking water for the betterment of our health.

Have you ever wondered what’s in your tap water?

Are you curious about the various methods of water purification and their effectiveness?

Do you feel a desire to increase the quality of water you fuel your body with?

How does choosing a clean source of drinking water help to reduce toxins in our systems?

Join Courtney Hughes as she discusses all this and more during the class, The Secrets of Sleep.  We will go deeper into the relationship between sleep and common disease pathologies, discuss strategies for improving sleep and go over some Materia Medica for hypnotic and relaxant herbs.  There will also be plenty of herbs to sample.
