How Can Water Help Depression?

Whether water can help depression sounds like an odd consideration, at first.

It’s an amazing fact that our brain consists of approximately 80% water. And thus not drinking enough water may result in dehydration.

With our brain requiring such a high percentage, dehydration will affect the brains ability to function optimally.

Conditions such as depression can have many causative factors.

It would be naive not to consider aspects of  allergy, inflammation, a traumatic emotional event, neurotransmitter and nutrient deficiency, as insignificant.

However, water is a basic necessity for healthy brain function, so drinking sufficient water should be seen as a priority for anyone who is depressed.

People experiencing depression often times try to compensate for their low mood and energy by drinking large amounts of caffeine to get through the day.

For some people it can create anxiety and actually worsen depression symptoms. And that is because among several detrimental effects, caffeine acts as a diuretic and contributes to dehydration. Thus starving the brain of essential amounts of water that it needs.

Alcohol is also used frequently to ease symptoms of depression. Alcohol, like caffeine, is a diuretic.

These common diuretics also flush out essential minerals possibly further accentuating symptoms of depression.

Take for example magnesium. Most people experiencing depression are severely deficient in this mineral.

Magnesium has over 300 effects in the body. From helping ease tension, involved with relaxation of muscles, and other many other ‘soothing’ effects that would benefit someone experiencing depression.

Did you know that the Ultra-stream water filter includes magnesium and other minerals in a soluble form?

What about drinking the right type of water? Certain contaminants such as lead in tap water have been linked with damaging the nervous system. Therefore you can see how important a filter that removes this toxin becomes to a person who is experiencing depression.

Just by these few points we briefly explained, you can see how important water could be in helping ease symptoms of depression.

Water And Cancer


Despite billions of dollars being spent on research, cancer statistics are still rising. We can however, contribute to helping prevent cancer by simply assessing the type of water we drink every day.

The general medical community has been reluctant over the years to emphasize that choices in food and water do affect the body’s ability to stay healthy. Nonetheless, many health conscious people have taken their well being into their own hands.

A cancer diagnosis frequently motivates a person to deeply evaluate all aspects of their life.

And whether their personal choice is to only use traditional methods of treatment, or to integrate complementary methods, it’s reasonable to conclude that nutrient dense food and pure water does indeed support the body’s innate healing ability.

Cancer is a challenging journey to undertake. And helping the immune system to function optimally becomes a primary focus.

Detoxification of synthetic chemicals, pesticides, gasoline solvents, and other contaminants can help promote the body’s ability to regain balance.

There is undeniable evidence that common residues found in tap water can contribute to cancer occurrence. Arsenic, chloride, radon, fluoride and other carcinogens have been implicated.


Heavy metals such as lead can leach from old pipes and plumbing. These metals can accumulate over time in the body’s tissues resulting in chronic toxicity. This eventually can interfere in the body’s ability to properly detoxify, and fight off disease.

Therefore, it makes sense that pure, clean water can definitely have a supportive impact both in cancer prevention, and on the journey to recovery.

The importance of drinking water that properly hydrates, acts as an antioxidant, and adds essential alkaline minerals, and can’t be overlooked.

Filtration of known tap water carcinogens seems like an inevitable step toward well being for all of us, regardless of our health status.

Cancer is a multi factorial condition that requires support on many levels. Water can undoubtedly be an advantageous ally.


We would like to add to this well known quote, that both the water and “food you eat can be either the safest & most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison”.
