Dehydration Also Causes Neurological and Autoimmune Disorders
Persistent dehydration inside some vital cells, in its extreme stages, will result in a number of disruptive conditions that have been labeled as different diseases - depending on the specialty of the "medical specialist" who first labels the problem. The initial stages of these health problems will begin by the loss of some of the most essential amino acids that get used up as detoxifying agents - antioxidants, when the person is not producing enough urine to get rid of the toxic waste of metabolism.
Since brain activity desperately depends on the presence of some of these amino acids, their depletive overuse will result in an inadequate presence of certain neurotransmitters - such as serotonin, tryptamine, melatonin and indolamine that are made from the amino acid tryptophan; or adrenaline, noradrenalin and dopamine that are made from the amino acid tyrosine.
As a result of an imbalance in the neurotransmitter composition of the brain, and based on proportionate depletion of a number of primary elements, a wide range of health problems have been recognized by the medical profession. Instead of recognizing these conditions as "deficiency disorders," they have been labeled as "diseases of unknown cause." In short, when dehydration produces health problems, instead of correcting the dehydration and its metabolic complications, people are given toxic medications.
These conditions have received various labels. Most frequently used labels are: depression, impotence, anxiety neurosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, attention deficit disorder in children. At more serious pathological stages, they are labeled as autoimmune diseases - such as insulin-dependent or juvenile diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease), Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's Disease, and even AIDS.
These conditions are caused by prolonged chronic dehydration and the metabolic complications of dehydration. For more information on these topics, read the book ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus. In order to understand old-age diabetes, read the book Your Body's Many Cries for Water.
