Saltis vital for reducing
a double chin.
When the body is short of salt, it means the body really is short of water. The salivary glands sense the salt shortage and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that it needs for breaking down foods.
Circulation to the salivary glands increases and the blood vessels become 'leaky' in order to supply the glands with more water to manufacture saliva. This 'leakiness' spills to areas beyond the glands themselves, causing increased bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks and into the neck.
Perceptive markers of dehydration
When the body becomes dehydrated, the brain can still get water delivered by 'raindrops' but this is not enough to energise it as fully as when the body is hydrated.

- Feeling a 'heavy head'
- Agoraphobia (social anxiety)

It should be appreciated that the spinal joints - intervertebral joints and their disc structures - aredependent on different hydraulic properties of water stored in the disc core, as well as in the end plate cartilage covering the flat surfaces of the spinal vertebrae.
In spinal vertebral joints, water is not only a lubricant for the contact surfaces, it is held in the disc core within the intervertebral space andsupports the compression weight of the upper part of the body.
Chronic painsof the body that cannot be explained as injury or infection should first and foremost be interpreted assignals of chronic water shortagein the area where pain is registered - a local thirst. These pain signals should be considered and excluded as primary indicators for dehydration of the body before any other complicated procedures are forced.
