The Water Cure
The Water Cure Recipe:
Drink 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces, daily. Example 180 lb = 90 oz.
of water daily. Divide that into 8 or 10 oz. glasses and that's how many glasses
you will need to drink, daily. Use 1/4 tsp. of salt for every quart of water you
drink. Use salt liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can use
the salt. Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. These are diuretics and will
dehydrate you. Every 6 oz. of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional 10 to
12 oz. of water to re-hydrate you.
P.S. (USE Clean Water, Use non-refined, ocean salt
of Unrefined Ocean Salt
Water-Nature's Thirst Quencher
Over half of your body is made up of water. It's in every
cell and every tissue. Biological processes like circulation, digestion, absorption and
excretion depend on water. It forms the foundation of blood and lymph, maintains hearty
muscles and young-looking skin, lubricates joints and organs and regulates body
temperature. You can't function without it.
As you grow older, it becomes vital to pay attention to
your water consumption. Mature persons hold less cellular water, with a loss of 10 to 15
percent of previous capacity by the age of 65. A contributing factor is the loss of thirst
sensitivity. Because water is so important for digestion, a lack of fluid in your body
might make it more difficult for you to digest food. You may suffer from cramps, bloating,
gas, constipation, diveritculosis or even colon cancer. Drinking more water, combined with
a high-fiber diet, can prevent these problems.
To combat this loss of fluids, the answer is simple. Drink
more water. Six to ten glasses of pure water each day are necessary to enhance your body's
functioning. Beyond helping your digestive system, getting enough fluids will give you
fresh skin, clear eyes and shining hair. Signs of hunger may be a warning flag that your
body is need of a good drink. Try consuming several glasses of water before diving into a
snack to see if that takes care of your craving. Because fruits are largely made up of
water, they are perfect choices for a mid-afternoon treat.

AMAZING SECRETS FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS
AMAZING SECRETS FOR HEALTH
# 1: Water prevents and cures heartburn.
Heartburn is a signal of
water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major
thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in
the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues
to suffer as a result of its water shortage.
2: Water prevents and cures arthritis.
Tragedy: Not recognizing heartburn as a sign
of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications will, in time,
produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and
eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and
Rheumatoid joint pain -
arthritis - is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect
the young as well as the old. The use of pain-killers does not cure the problem,
but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water
and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.
# 3: Water prevents and cures back pain.
Low back pain and ankylosing
arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and
discs - the water cushions that support the weight of the body. These conditions
should be treated with increased water intake - not a commercial treatment, but
a very effective one.
Tragedy: Not recognizing arthritis and low
back pain as signs of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with
pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time,
produce osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually
all died. It will produce deformity of the spine. It will produce crippling
deformities of the limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening
# 4: Water prevents and cures angina.
Heart pain - angina - is a
sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with
increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of
medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is
# 5: Water prevents and cures migraines.
Migraine headache is a sign
of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration
is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes
migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly
loss of eye sight.
Water prevents and cures colitis.
Colitis pain is a signal of
water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the
large intestine constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrements
- thus the lack of water lubrication.
Tragedy: Not recognizing colitis pain as a
sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation. Later in life, it will
cause fecal impacting: it can cause diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and
appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and
Cure # 7:
Water and salt prevent and cure asthma.
Asthma, which also affects 14
million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a
complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management
programs of the body. In asthma free passage of air is obstructed so that water
does not leave the body in the form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water
intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to
break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out
of the air sacs.
Tragedy: Not recognizing asthma as the
indicator of dehydration in the body of a growing child not only will sentence
many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible
genetic damage to establish in the remaining 14 million asthmatic children.
Cure # 8:
Water prevents and cures high blood pressure.
Hypertension is a state of
adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water
to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of
the mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the blood serum is filtered
and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra
pressure is needed for the "injection process." Just as we inject I.V.
"water" in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions
of cells all at the same time. Water and some salt intake will bring blood
pressure back to normal!
Tragedy: Not recognizing hypertension as one
of the major indicators of dehydration in the human body, and treating it with
diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by
cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain. It will
cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes that paralyze. It will
eventually cause kidney disease. It will cause brain damage and neurological
disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Cure # 9:
Water prevents and cures early adult-onset diabetes.
Adult-onset diabetes is
another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate
water in circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of
insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells.
In diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt
will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.
Tragedy: Not recognizing adult-onset
diabetes as a complication of dehydration will, in time, cause massive damage to
the blood vessels all over the body. It will cause eventual loss of the toes,
feet and legs from gangrene. It will cause eye damage, even blindness.
10: Water lowers blood cholesterol.
High cholesterol levels are
an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like
material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them
against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood
circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture
nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against
water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through
their cell membranes.
11: Water cures depression, loss of libido, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus,
multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy.
These conditions are caused
by prolonged chronic dehydration. They will clear up once the body becomes well
and regularly hydrated. In these conditions, exercising one's muscles should be
part of the treatment program.

"Bad Cholesterol": A Myth and a Fraud!
We in the medical profession,
totally oblivious of the vital roles of cholesterol in the body, have been duped
into thinking that it is this substance that causes arterial disease of the
heart and the brain. The pharmaceutical industry has capitalized on the slogan
of "bad cholesterol" and has produced toxic-to-the-body chemicals that
minimally lower the level of cholesterol in the body and in the process cause
liver damage to thousands of people, some who die as a result of using the
It is surprising that none of
the frequently quoted and media-popularized doctors has reflected on the fact
that cholesterol levels are measured from blood taken from the veins, yet
nowhere in medical literature is there a single case of cholesterol having
caused obstruction of the veins. Venous blood moves far slower than arterial
blood and thus would be more inclined to have cholesterol deposits if the
assumption of "bad cholesterol" were accurate. This mistake by us in
the medical community, and its capitalization by the pharmaceutical industry,
has caused an ongoing fraud against society.
In truth, the so-called
"bad" cholesterol is actually far more beneficial than is appreciated.
The reason for its rise in the body is because of complications caused by
chronic unintentional dehydration and insufficient urine production. Dehydration
produces concentrated, acidic blood that becomes even more dehydrated during its
passage through the lungs before reaching the heart – because of evaporation
of water in the lungs during breathing. The membranes of the blood vessels of
the heart and main arteries going up to the brain become vulnerable to the
shearing pressure produced by the thicker, acidic blood. This shearing force of
toxic blood causes abrasions and minute tears in the lining of the arteries that
can peel off and cause embolisms of the brain, kidneys and other organs. To
prevent the damaged blood vessel walls from peeling, low-density (so-called
"bad") cholesterol coats and covers up the abrasions and protects the
underlying tissue like a waterproof bandage until the tissue heals.
Thus, the vital, life-saving
role of low-density cholesterol proves this substance is of utmost importance in
saving the lives of those who do not adequately hydrate their bodies so that
their blood can flow easily through the blood vessels without causing damage.
Cholesterol is an element
from which many of our hormones are made. Vitamin D is made by the body from
cholesterol in our skin that is exposed to sunlight. Cholesterol is used in the
insulating membranes that cover our nerve systems. There is no such a thing as
bad cholesterol. If all the primary ingredients are available for its normal
functions, the human body does not engage in making things that are bad for its
survival. Until now we did not know water was a vital nutrient that the body
needed at all times – and in sufficient quantity.
Water itself – not
caffeinated beverages that further dehydrate – is a better
cholesterol-lowering medication than any chemical on the market. It is
absolutely safe and is not harmful to the body like the dangerous medications
now used. Please share this information with those you care for.
