Plasma, the straw coloured liquid that is found in blood and lymph constitutes for about 55% of blood and is 90% water. It is key in the movement of water between blood and body tissue.
If water becomes still, stops flowing, it stagnates, attracts decay and disease just as a pond or river does. The water and fluids in our body are also, or should be, in constant motion.
Our life, as a foetus, begins in a warm sac, in water in the womb that is constantly being nourished via the umbilical cord. When we become dehydrated our whole body is affected on all levels.
