It is too simple too be true, but in many cases just drinking a lot of water will solve your health issues.
Let us start with a quote. It may be a hyperbole but it is truer than most of us would believe.
“You’re not sick; you’re thirsty. Don’t treat thirst with medication.”
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
When you have a cold or the flew the first thing the doctor usually will tell you is drink a lot of liquids, water. If you have kidney stones, drink a lot of water. Urinary tract infections can go away if you drink a lot of water.
I had a man tell me that he had had chronic neck problem. One surgeon was talking about neck surgery. That does not sound good at all. But another doctor suggested that before agreeing to surgery try drinking copious amounts of water. I forget what the amount was, but in lieu of the other option he swallowed the advice.
Surprise, Surprise. His neck problems went away. Who would have thought that water would cure a spinal problem? Now he drinks a lot of water every day. And cured himself with the water cure.
I heard one medical professional say that for any health related problem drink a lot of water. There may be a few instances where water is not a good thing to do, but these would be exceptions to the rule. Try the water cure.
Do you have arthritis? Paul Harvey wrote about a man that had had 31 years of pain. The Mayo Clinic had said there was nothing for him. He started drinking water with a little salt and presto chango.
“I continue to be pain-free with my ankylosis spondylitis one year after starting the water/salt regime. My blood pressure is normal as well. I thank God everyday for allowing me to finally be pain-free.” Lloyd Palmer.
Drinking a lot of water can deal with certain types of arthritis.
Some incurable diseases are the result of long term chronic dehydration. Change your water intake, and change your life with the water cure.
A few years ago ABC news reported that there are 110 million people in U.S. with chronic pain. How many of them just need to drink more water? If that did not work for them the worst thing that can happen is that they will have a cleansing flush of their systems. Is the possibility of pain elimination worth the experiment? And it may be a cheap cure. Drink more water.
There are many diseases that water has been has been attributed to the cure. Here are a few
High Blood Pressure
Increase Mental acuity and alertness
Alzheimer prevention – your brain is 85% water
Angina and Heart Disease
Urinary tract infections
Reduces having a fatal heart attack
One doctor who promotes the cure says the dose is individual because everyone is an individual. But he suggests dividing your body weight in pounds by 2, and the result of that is the number of ounces you should drink daily. If you weigh 150 lbs. you should be drinking 75 ounces of water a day. If you weigh 200 lbs., then you should down 100 ounces of water a day.
This might be a big increase to some people. But it can be slowly achieved by drinking a little more each day. And that is all through the day. You do not have to over do it in one sitting or try to.
O.k. let us say you are 150 lbs. That is 75 ozs. There are 8 ozs. in a cup. Round figures that is 9.5 cups. So you might consider 3.5 cups in the morning, 3.5 cups in the afternoon, and 2.5 cups in the evening. That is doable. That is a suggestion. Do the water as you desire. Just shoot for the 9.5 cups during the day.
Let us look at a get started program of 75 ozs. So you get up with a morning glass of water on your nightstand, and you drink straight down 1.5 ozs. of water. That means that during the rest of the day you will need to consume eight cups. If you have an eight and a half ounce cup of water with each of your three meals, you have consumed six cups. So at your morning break you swallow 12 ounces, [the same as an old bottle of a soft drink]. That means you only have had 7.5 ounces already. Just before bed drink a cup and a half cups. You have only have now imbibed 9 cups sometimes during the day. Easy, just 4 ozs., sometime during the day. You have hit your minimum water intake. As you get into drinking the water, you will be easily building up to the proper level for your weight.
What every your problem, try the water cure. It has even been linked to some psychological issues.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was a great proponent of apple cider vinegar.
you might, as I do, add a teaspoon of this to a glass of water once a day. It tends to balance your system and is great for some forms of heartburn, among other things.
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj suggests that separated over every 4 or 5 glasses of water use a quarter teaspoon of salt. I think sea salt or specialty salt is best.
That is spaced out so it does not shock the system. Surprisingly blood pressure on this regimen is not affected and even improved.
The Amish people take in a quarter teaspoon of Epsom salt every day for health purposes.
This might like Dr. F. Batmanghelidj’s regimine be separated over 4 or 5 glasses.
You may have heard of the health benefits of cream of tartar.
I twice a day add a quarter teaspoon of cream of tartar to a glass. It tastes a little citrusy and is quite good. [If you buy it in bulk it is very cheap and lasts a long time.]
You might use some vitamin C crystals in one of you glasses of water. It is a healer.
The main thing in all this is drink water. It is to your health. Did I mention if you are sick or out of sorts, drink a lot of water?
Another thing to think about is that water is absorbed through your skin. Taking a long luxurious bath will increase your water intake. Or you might think about some hot tube time. [Yes, a shower gives you some too.] That is a relaxing way to add water intake to the water cure.
I had an uncle who told me when he was a boy and got sick his mother would start to fret. He would tell her not for worry, but he was going to a distant windmill on the ranch,
and he would drink water.
He had gotten it in head that that water was mineral rich and would do the trick. Maybe the mineral were good for somethings. However, what he was doing was the water cure. He swore by that well all his life.
Water is a healer. It is just for some too simple to be true.
