Half your body weight in
ounces. If you weigh 200 lbs., you will need 100 oz. of water. That is
approx. 3 quarts. A quart is 32 oz. A 1.5 liter bottle has 6 servings of 8
oz., which makes it 48 oz..
There are four suggested ways
to take the salt.
A person using the water cure writes:
At the top of our web page we state: The best way to use
the water cure is to drink a little water, dissolve sea salt on the tongue,
then finish your amount of water. We also use sea salt liberally on our
food. See our Critical Salt Info link. We sometimes use raw sugar or honey
to give us energy for our body to function better or when in pain or ill to
keep our body from cannibalizing our muscles.
You must remember that
decaffeinated coffee still has some caffeine unless it is naturally
decaffeinated. It also goes through a process to decaffeinate it with
chemicals like formaldehyde. So, you are actually trading a little caffeine
for chemicals. Ask yourself, is it worth it? How much arsenic is enough?
Tea, according to Dr.
Batmanghelidj is worse than coffee. It not only is a diuretic, but it strips
your body of the vitamins and minerals we are trying to put back into our
bodies. At the top of the list, as far as teas go, there are black teas
(your regular run of the mill teas), which are the worst, containing the
most caffeine. Decaffeinated teas are a little better, but still are not as
natural as you should have. Naturally decaffeinated teas are the
You can call 1-800-TOP-SALT.
(800-867-7258) This is the Grain Salt Society, 273 Fairway Drive,
Asheville, North Carolina 28805. This is the best that we have found. It
contains 84 trace minerals. Another one is the Redmond Mineral, Inc., P.O.
Box 219, Redmond, Utah 84652. 1-435-529-7402. Their sea salt has over
70 trace minerals in it. BE CAREFUL when buying sea salt or Celtic Sea Salt.
If it does not list minerals on the back, the odds are that you have just
bought expensive, prettier packaged table salt. All salt came
from the sea at one point. So it is legal for anyone
to label their low grade salt as sea salt. Good Celtic Sea Salt
is NOT white or dry.
testimonials from all over
the world on how the water cure has "reversed", or totally eliminated
cancer, MS, MD, asthma, allergies, acid reflux, arthritis, ulcers and other
digestive problems, joint pain, headaches, back problems, diabetes,
depression, aids in weight loss, scleroderma and other skin problems, high
blood pressure, high cholesterol, and many more. The watercure is a
"preventative measure" to take to obtain optimum health. We were not
born with a caffeine or alcohol deficiency. Both of
these drugs act the way dry gas does to gasoline in a car. It takes the life
essential nutrient-water, out.
Dr. Batmanghelidj suggests that
we drink room temp or cool water. Cold water (with ice) shocks the stomach
lining and disrupts our digestive system. Instead of drinking coffee in the
morning, Dr. Batman drinks hot water. Give it a try. It's really very good
and gives you that warm feeling you are looking for.
To prevent our digestive juices
from becoming diluted and weak, it is suggested to drink two (2) glasses of
water one half (1/2) hour BEFORE meals. It is O.K. to sip water with
meals, but not drink a lot. This also helps in weight loss.
If one is severely dehydrated
and used to only their caffeine or alcohol intake, this may be a problem.
Try drinking small sips of water throughout the day. Drink only an amount
that will not upset your stomach. Nausea can be caused by an acidic
condition. You need to bring up your alkalinity level. By taking a pinch of
sea salt along with the sip of water will help to neutralize your stomach
acids. In most cases, it takes about a week before you can drink the proper
amount of water. Don't give up.
ABSOLUTELY!! We've seen people totally lose alcohol cravings in 24 hours because the toxins were washed out. Water is the "roto rooter" of the body.
It will if way overdone, and if not enough sea salt was used.
Yes, but when you do, it
changes the molecular structure. H2O is H2O. When you add too much orange
juice or lemon juice or something else to it, it becomes a food, not water
Again, start out slowly if you
are not used to drinking water. One can not become hydrated properly if you
drink half the amount you are to take at breakfast and then the other half
at dinner. Your body will release more than you will retain. Plus, you will
be washing out vitamins and minerals unless taken in slowly. Your urine
should be a light lemonaid color, not clear. In some cases, it is suggested
to drink out of a 3 oz. bathroom size cup. Anyone can handle drinking 3 oz
of water every half hour.
We have phone numbers
or e-mail addresses on most testimonials on our web site. More and more testimonials are
coming in from across the world. In that case, e-mail addresses are
included. If you have trouble contacting someone, let us know by e-mail, and
we will see what we can do.
You must have your own testimonial or a relative or
close friend that made an amazing recovery otherwise you will have little
credibility. Also refer people to
According to the research of F.
Batmanghelidj, M.D., about 85% of all health, mental, emotional, poor
grades, sports performance, cancer, M.S., M.D., diabetes, alcoholism, and
behavioral problems, (including violent behavior) are caused by lack of
water and/or salt in the body. If this is true, then the only thing that can
cure them is water and/or salt. Whatever improves after going on the
watercure is obviously caused by lack of water and/or salt. I have seen it
work countless times.
That is a good question. Water cure results vary person to person and even depend upon a persons level of using the entire program. There have been people who have seen some type of results in as little as 4 days. I felt different within 4 days but my cancer was gone at 6 months into the program and I used it reasonable rigidly. Without knowing your case history and complaints-I cannot predict results. Even after you send me your questionnaire and after you read the files I am sending, and you start the program-results will depend upon how well you follow Dr. Batman's recommendations. We (myself and other water cure coaches) have seen outstanding results from many people with many various-even serious - problems.
If a person is suffering from
lack of water, then it's no different than having a lawn turn brown because
of lack of water. After you water the lawn, how long does it take for the
grass to turn green? Dehydrated people and all living things recover so
quickly when their water shortage is corrected. But, in some cases, if you
are so terribly dehydrated, it may take a while before you fully appreciate
and see a difference.
Because if the 2nd and 3rd most essential nutrients are water and salt in the body, (the 1st being oxygen), wouldn't common sense tell us to check those levels first? Does your doctor ask you about your water/salt intake? ....caffeine/alcohol intake?
Because there is too much salt in ocean water. If a person keeps putting salt into a glass of water it will just keep getting stronger and stronger because the salt will dissolve into the water. Sea water will kill a person. Saline in the hospital is one liter of water (about a quart ) and 9 grams of salt ( 1- 1/2 tsp of salt) Anything stronger then that will not be good. Read Dr B's book ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus. Read page 144-150 and should get Dr B's lecture on CD (water and salt) for more inforOur siteion.
It is detailed in the recipe. You need to quit the salt for two days & gradually reintroduce it.
In Dr Batman's book ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus on page 31 at the bottom and the top of 32 Dr B warns about not using or making a person's drinking water alkaline with drops or using a machine to create alkaline water. It's water and sea salt and eat lots of fruit and vegetables.
According to Dr. Batmangheligj' research, it is about the wate rcirculating before eating to prompt the body to produce the hormones leptin aand motillin which stimulate the body to make hydrochloric acid for the stomach to digest food properly and the pancreas to produce the bi-carbonate necessary to alkalize the styomach contents (chyme) moving into the small intestine to prevent burning and ulcers so the 3 portions of the small intestine can distribute the nutrients from the digested foods and supplements to the body appropriately. This is bio-chemistry.
People eat in varying times between immediately, 15 minutes, and a half hour depending on how long we as individuals hold the water in our body for the cells to utilize it properly for metabolism. We seek to hold water 2 hours before urinating after drinking to stay hydrated and maintain optimal health and protect the kidneys.
