knows that proper hydration is essential for all living beings, and is not only limited to runners and endurance athletes. As a reputable health coach, she understands the biological makeup that requires the human body to get an ample amount of water daily. Stidham knows that bodies naturally need water in order for organs to function properly. One of the most significant pieces of advice she gives her clients is to increase daily intake of water to reap full body benefits.
A recent article
in HuffPost Living Canada addresses the serious repercussions caused by a lack of water intake and the importance of attaining proper hydration. It is intriguing that the human body can survive for weeks without food, yet will shut down without water after just three days. Even when the body is at rest, it will shut down if it is not given water to supply to the organs.
Thus, when it comes to runners and endurance athletes who are seriously challenging the body to perform, the importance of hydration isn't stressed enough. Every year, marathon organizers set up emergency tents with IV drips to supply water to dehydrated runners. Though the notion of drinking enough water is widespread, all do not adhere to the idea.
It is a common belief that humans should drink approximately eight glasses of water per day, according to the advice of medical professionals. When staying active with vigorous running and other endurance sports, it's important to drink at least two cups of water before and after a run. In addition, it's especially important to watch water intake during the winter, when bodies may not crave water as they typically tends to do in the midst of summer. Failure to provide the body with enough water, consequentially leads to dehydration, which inevitably leads to poor performance and difficulty recovering.
"It's simple, really. Our bodies are composed of around 75 percent water. It's a natural necessity needed to perform tasks on a day-to-day basis," Daphanie Stidham said. "The fact that our bodies will shut down after three days without water says a lot about what it needs to properly function," she adds. "Give the body what it needs so you have the fuel to do the things you want to do."
Failure to hydrate properly results in serious and uncomfortable health conditions ranging from headaches and cramping to fatigue and dizziness. Failure to provide the body with water shocks its system, causing serious fatal issues for the organs. Daphanie Stidham reassures clients by affirming that enough water can help prevent all of these conditions from plaguing any individual.
