WHY ARE THE PATIENTS GIVEN THE SALINE INTRAVENOUS DRIP AND NOT THE SIMPLE WATER INJECTIONS?

It is a common knowledge that the patients suffering from dehydration due to various factors such as the diarrhoea, loose motions and unbearable heat are given saline I.Vs.

The underlying assumption is that the intake of the water quenches the patient’s body’s thirst, reduces the need for the water-intake or makes up for the loss of the water that has already taken place in the body.                     

What isn’t known clearly is the reason as to why the salt is added to the water supplied via I.V. process! The common thinking is that it is done to replenish the salt that was lost due to dehydration, etc.

But, contrary to the Perceptual Reality, the real Factual Reality or the Factual Truth is that the salt is added to the water more to reduce the body’s need for the water than the body’s need to replenish the salt-loss that was suffered earlier.

How does it happen?

As well-trained Yoga-practitioners, we must know that it happens so because the body generates the glucocorticid hormones when the salt is taken in. The glucocorticoid hormones break down fat and muscle in the patient’s body. This frees up the water for the body to use to meet its own actual need for the water. This in turn reduces the body’s present and the further need for the water.

The yoga-practitioners and Ayurveda-Practitioners have for long known that giving water containing the salt (sodium chloride) to the patient helps in overcoming the dehydration and loss of water caused due to various reasons.

The above-given explanation is based on the findings of the study done by Dr Jens Titze in 2006 of Russian space program crew in which he discovered that the crew members were drinking less water with the increased salt-intake.
