The truly obese people always under-urinate (e.g., 2-4 times daily), and that favours the accumulation of calcium, along with several other substances in their body.
This tends to make the person lazy, lethargic and slow-moving. Their reflex too slows down. In other words, they become hypoactive.
As opposed to the above, those adults who drink abundant water (e.g., about 4 L/day) and void nearly all of it through more than, say, 14 urinations daily, become Skeletal people. Their body would develop hyperacidity.
When a person happens to be in a state of hyperacidity for a prolonged period, he/she becomes very thin. This is precisely why practically all the children who are hyperactive stay very thin all the time.
The rate of heartbeat will be rapid (palpitation) among hyperactive children. That would make them highly tensed and stressed, besides being short-tempered.
Here, most of the required nutrients get leached out of the body. As a result, even the red blood cell count can get reduced, making the transportation of oxygen to the brain difficult.
To rectify this problem, the brain makes the body shiver– similar to exercising, and that increases the speed of blood circulation, thus enhancing increased uptake of oxygen.
The sickness would become worse if the person happens to be eating very poor diet, such as plain rice all the time.
Even 1L of water intake and related liberal urination should be considered too much for children aged 3 or 4.
In this category, most of the calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium (cooking salt), etc. that are required for the body’s well-being, get leached out in the urine, creating a shortage of such necessities.
This, especially the shortages of salt (sodium chloride) and calcium, in turn, induces the adrenal glands situated above the kidneys, in the Skeletal people, to secrete more of the male sex hormone androgen (among both genders).
The increase in androgen production promotes a rapid heart beat, and that induces the person to be hyperactive, besides giving him/her nervousness, fear, nightmares, short-temperament, tension, stress, etc.
Children, born to mothers who have been drinking water and urinating excessively while being pregnant, also tend to drink plenty of water and urinate likewise, and end up being hyperactive. Often this over-active behaviour appears to be conspicuous in children more than in adults.
Another very important factor that makes the thin people hyperactive is the increased production of thyroxin hormone by the thyroid gland. This happens because of the increased consumption of iodised salt. Iodine in excess will make a person hyperactive.
A reversal of the lifestyle should help improve the behavioural pattern of these hyperactive persons. That will require practising all the so-called ‘undesirable habits’ of the obese people, until the correction is achieved (see Palaniappan, 1998).
In addition, only uniodised salt should be used in all the foods consumed by these people. Iodine-rich cabbage, sea foods, agar-agar jelly, etc. should also be avoided.
The correction procedure would require administration of restricted quantity of water intake (2 L for adults, and relatively less or little for children), and eating nutrient-rich vegetables and fruits (i.e., inclusion of foods and vegetables that are naturally rich in calcium).
Water reduction programme should be gradual. Any drastic decrease would disturb the person’s health in a different way.
