keep my body warm prevent the dehydration of the body which causes aging

Do your eyes feel dry and dim and are your fingertips so dehydrated you have to lick them every time you turn a page? Is your skin, which used to be moist, increasingly dry and coarse and your hair growing increasingly brittle or suddenly more sparse? 

Dr. Ishihara Yumi, renowned Japanese researcher and Doctor of Medicine, says, “Aging is a phenomenon of our body becoming gradually drier.” This means that, as with animals and plants, aging progresses in humans in tandem with cell dehydration and the body becomes dehydrated. 

As a person grows older, the complexion that used to glow becomes dry and rough. This is caused by reduced water content in the body. Moisture comprises 70% of the body weight in infancy but, with aging, this same moisture decreases to 60% in adulthood and 55% in old age. Just like the phenomenon of the dried raisin and its wrinkled “skin”, when moisture dwindles, our skin also becomes wrinkled. However, unlike the raisin, the moisture content of our body decreases because our cells become unable to absorb moisture as we age. In that case, how can we stop the dehydration of the cells in our body? 

First of all, you need to raise your body temperature. It’s especially important to increase the temperature of your internal organs. This is because the function of the cells, tissues, and organs in your body is influenced by moisture and temperature. When we ingest moisture, it is absorbed by the sixty trillion cells in the body, with one caveat: if the body temperature is low, the cells, tissues, and organs become cold and the cells lose their ability to absorb water. If moisture is not sufficiently absorbed into the cells, it collects in undesirable places, such as between cells, and causes edema. Moisture collecting between cells is called “extracellular fluid;” if there is a lot of extracellular fluid, cells become dry and the body ages easily. In order for cells to absorb a sufficient amount of the needed moisture, the interior temperature of the body needs to increase.
