Hi Bob, Excuse me for the belated response. I will try to keep this brief and spare you from all the boring details. Prior to my starting the water cure, I had been suffering from gout, dangerously high blood pressure and a whole slew of problems.

After taking a blood and urine test the doctor stated, "Mr. Kupfer you've got serious kidney damage among other issues." He wrote a prescription. I remember walking into the pharmacy, about to pick up medication. 4 sets of drugs. Holy smokes, I thought to myself. There has got to be a better way. I simply excused myself walked out without taking the medicine.

Yes a dangerous move. I do take the bp medication. Searching for alternatives, not wanting to drastically alter my lifestyle, I discovered the watercure. Starting the process January 2014. Over the course of 6 month's my lab workup improved substantially. I can safely state there was a 80% improvement. I eradicated the gout, lowered but not yet normalized my bp. Kidney functions are normal. Lost weight. Many other readings are normal.

Bear in mind. During that 6 month period I had an intensive blood and urine test each month. I told the doctor, "check off everything, even the pregnancy test!" Lol. That's how serious and firm I was.

After 6 months as doc reviewed the progress, he was amazed. He asked, "Did you become a vegetarian?" "Vegan? No way!" I said. I showed him the watercure. Doc was in denial. I said my lab work is proof. This ain't quackery. I must state while watercure allowed my health to improve, 85% of the issues are now gone. But, some exercise and dietary changes must be incorporated into your daily lifestyle.

I promote the watercure to everyone I talk to. My family already knows I will talk "watercure" where ever we go. I tell people "I am living testimony". Feel free to publish my name and contact info.

Is it worth being sick? Isn't prevention better than cure? I learned the hard way. Doctor after doctor could not find what was wrong with me after having one miscarriage and two stillbirths.

The doctors finally said I had lupus, it didn't add up because the blood tests were not conclusive. They gave me prednisone and heparin for the third pregnancy. I had a stillbirth at six and a half months anyway. I was frustrated not knowing where to turn. I prayed that GOD would show me the answer before I tried again; I was determined not to give up.

When I thought it could not get any worse, it did. I got hives all over my body. I was ashamed to go outside. The doctor gave me steroids which worked for a day or two and then got worse. Searching the internet for answers; I came across the Water cure. Desparate, I saw how sea salt and water were so powerful. I was a little skeptic at first, but I decided to try some of the salt in my cupboard with some water.

I was in shock because within two hours all the hives disappeared. I didn't take any medications. I knew I had to get in touch with someone from this website. I emailed and Jim Bolen responded. I was still skeptical but I remembered what the salt had done for me so I decided to give it a try.

After learning about the WaterCure; I felt blessed with a second chance and I started "cleaning house" in my own body, using sound nutrition to undo all the mistakes I had made in my twenties and early thirties. The knowledge of how my body truly works gave me the power to control how I looked and felt; which brought with it inner peace and confidence. More than the physical effect I felt a spiritual change come over me.

Several months after starting on this program I became slightly ill. To my surprise I found out I was pregnant again. Jim suggested I pray and I did. I knew GOD wanted me to continue on this program and have faith.

My ob-gyn did an ultra sound and to my shock and pleasant surprise he said it was twins. I said GOD is giving me two when I wasn't able to successfully carry one. I will do my part and Jim will do his part.

I had experienced edema in my early pregnancies. But this pregnancy, I had no swelling of the feet, no high blood pressure, no abnormal blood tests. The doctors and nurses marveled at how someone with twins had no high blood

Pressure, no edema, no gestational diabetes, etc. I just gave them a smirk as if I didn't know what was causing this. In my 37th week of pregnancy I gave birth to two bouncing WaterCure babies, my miracle children.

My second short story is my sister who was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Her blood sugar upon diagnosis was so high the meter couldn't read it. In seven weeks following the suggested program, her blood sugar was back to normal and I didn't need to give her any insulin injections. She is not fully on the program now because she refuses to exercise and take the salt and supplements and her insulin requirement is back.

This lifestyle has proven successful for me and my family for over two years now, keeping us healthy, energetic, and satisfied. I never knew self-healing was possible. But thanks to GOD and his vessel, Jim Bolen he used to spread his message of healing.

My life changed after two months on the "Water Cure." As the result of an accident on Oct. 5,1954, I suffered a broken back, dislocated shoulder, dislocated knees, a smashed foot and a fractured skull. I've had severe pain and discomfort ever since. I was taking Lasix, a diuretic for edema of both legs. I also took atenolol and lisinopril for high blood pressure and was told to use no salt. I was a heavy consumer of alcohol most of my life. It got to where I was drinking one or two six-packs of beer each day and sometimes as much as a full case. I prayed to God to help me stop drinking. 

I first heard about the "Water Cure" on "Positive Press on the Air." My wife and daughter went to Cee-Kay Auto and spoke to Bob Butts about the "Water Cure." I sat in the car. It wasn't easy for me to come in. I read the literature and it made sense to me, so I tried the "Water Cure." The day I started drinking a gallon of water a day while using sea salt liberally, I quit drinking alcohol. I've had no desire for any since, even when in the company of others drinking alcohol. My pain is diminished to the point that I don't park in handicap spots. I am now off all pain medication. The edema in my ankles disappeared in two days. In two weeks my blood pressure returned to normal and I've been off the medication since. Before going on medication my pressure was 166 over 126. On medication it would be about 156 over 83. Now it is 141 over 78. My energy also greatly improved. It's incredible how much my life changed for the better in just two months. 

I recommended the "Water Cure" to my daughter Kelly, who was suffering from compacted bowels. In five days she was restored to health. Her complexion also greatly improved. She had very severe blemishes and skin texture that was so bad it resembled alligator hide. It returned to almost normal in five days. She now feels like a million dollars Feel free to share my success with your listeners and readers. You may use my name, address and telephone number. Our E-mail address is

Listen Tom,

Please meet Jim and Bob. You trust me Tom, right? I want you to listen to these guys. I was EXTREMELY reluctant to listen to them and I finally gave in and, other than my freaking seizures I've been having due to stress, the things they have been telling me to do is making me feel so much better.

I've been using a sea salt bath to soak and MADONE when I get out, my back and legs are tingling for such a long time but the wonderful thing is that the pain has lessened tremendously for several hours. I've been taking chlorophyll twice per day and giving it to my dogs with cancer. Read about it on the internet.

I've been eating eggs every day and using sea salt in my food. I'm not drinking the amount of water I should yet though because it makes me want to puke. I'm working on it though and I am putting sea salt in the dogs water. They didn't like it at first but now there's no problem.

Tom, I don't have cancer like your wife does, but listen to what I have: Lyme Disease, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Asthma, Thyroid Failure, Gastropasresis (paralyzed stomach), Pernicious Anemia, arthritis, facets disease, degenerative disc disease, Fibromylgia, and SEVERAL more secondary diseases.

I have read and listened to testimonials from people who had CANCER who got better. Tom, she has nothing to lose at this point. I'm telling you that as a medical professional. NOW PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS DOES NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE AND IT DOESN'T WORK FOR EVERY DISEASE.

Guys, please contact Tom and help him help his wife. Thanks so much.

Hi Kalrasl,

My name is Richard, Jim Bolen forwarded me your email to him. First off, let me assure your that their is without a question much hope for you!! On March 7th of this year I emailed Jim just as you did. I was feeling very desperate and like you after twenty years of searching and trying what seemed like everything known to mankind I was almost at a point of giving up. Jim explained to me about the great Dr Batmanghelidj (or as his students call him Dr B). and how I (or anyone else) could be cured from my ailments. Somewhat skeptical, I decided to do exactly what Jim advised me to do. He guided me through the teachings of Dr B. The main point of this program is that ailments are caused by chronic dehydration ,thus Dr B's book "Your Body's Many cries for water" The right amount of water along with SEA SALT, potassium and amino acids (Diet) and exercise (I walk 1 hour a day) is critical and WILL have a dramatic change on the way you feel! Since starting the program (less than 2 months ago) I have gone from a person who suffered from extreme anxiety and stress and depression to a person who really is loving life!!!! Another big plus has been my pants size has gone from a forty waist to a 36!!!!!- Follow Dr B's program. There is HOPE and success waiting for you just around the corner.


In Health, Richard

My story is not about failing to get help from the watercure. It has been a real blessing. People are telling me that I am losing weight. My blood pressure is 127/76, when just a month ago it was 144/96. My wife told me that she is noticing that I am growing new hair in the bald spot on top of my head! I had pain in my toes so bad that the toes felt like they were numb and ached all the time. I would frequently wake up from a sound sleep because of the pain in my toes.

My wife and I went out and bought Redmond's Real Salt, because it has 50 minerals listed on the label. I also bought Celtic Sea Salt, but I didn't see the minerals listed. My wife prefers Celtic Sea Salt, because she says that it doesn't "taste as tart" as the Real Salt.

I followed your advice and put 1/4 teaspoon of the Real Salt in each quart of water that I drink. In addition I sprinkle the Real Salt on my food. My toes are getting much better now. They don't wake me up from pain anymore. I sleep like a rock.

My wife has had masses of skin tags and moles around the front of her neck and chest for several years. She had gotten where she would not wear necklaces because they would hang up on the skin tags. Recently she told me that she is noticing a difference with the skin tags. I looked at her neck and to my amazement, they are disappearing! Many of the moles are shrinking and the skin tags are going down!

What are we doing? Nothing more than drinking our water and taking the sea salt. This is truly amazing.

Thanks for your being so dedicated about the water cure. It is really helping me and my wife.

Please check out the article on my blog about the watercure. Hope you don't mind the plug.

From:   Karie Garnier <>

To: <>

Drew Bauman's amazing story is featured on our cancer page.

Dear Andrew,

Greetings. My name is Karie Garnier. I am 58 and I live in Canada.

I have been following your story of healing on the internet and felt compelled to contact you. I too practice and was healed by water therapy, and was so glad to read your story.

A bit about my healing story ~ today I'm a happily married man of modest means ~ I'm a multi-tasking artist, photographer, occasional publisher, and bit of a filmmaker ~ according to how Spirit moves me towards serving, I have a web site which I will highlight below in case you want to glimpse the humanitarian work that my Filipina wife and I are doing on Fuga Island, in the northernmost tip of the Philippines.

I too have found TREMENDOUS healing with water therapy. I first discovered it in 1981 when I was near death. And, like you, it was a literal answer to prayer. The experience was, and still is, a total revelation.

My long multiple illness (1979-1982) which brought me to death's door, and my subsequent healing and success with the water cure (in 1981), awakened some kind of generosity of Spirt.

Once again, I recently needed healing for painful knees and legs which were keeping me awake at night (probably the onset of fibromyalgia which my mother had), so I returned to water therapy or the ancient Japanese water cure (drinking 3.5 liters of water within 30 minutes of rising). Within 4 weeks, the pain is gone. I feel great and sometimes, feel bursting with optimism and overflowing with gratitude. I also received back in 1982 a complete healing of my debilitating heart disease, thanks to the great and now late Cherokee healer Rolling Thunder.

In gratitude, I subsequently (1983 to 1990) underwent a series of Vision Quests (four day cleansing fasts on a mountain top under guidance of aboriginal Elders) and for the past 23 years have been doing my Heart Work - namely The Elders Project (1982 - 1992) and since then The Fuga Island Project (you'll see some on the Web Site). Now, as I approach Elderhood, I'm doing a bit of traveling and giving talks about my personal knowledge of the two most powerful things I know: water therapy and the Vision Quest.

Would also like to share that 10 days ago, with my two teenage children, I attended a traditional four-day Medicine Wheel hosted by First Nations (Native Canadian) Elders in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. The healing event was attended by 400, including many fine people from around the world who were sick (Physical, Emotional, Spiritual etc). Real miracles happened there for me and many others, thanks to the ancient, time-honored healing practices that are NATURAL. One of the blessings of the powerful event is, like the water cure, it is totally free. There is no charge for anyone; and all meals are free.

Talk about generosity of Spirit.

Anyway, I would love to hear from you.

PS - do you ever come to Canada? If so, come by and visit us; see the ancient rock paintings that surround Slocan Lake. Some of the sites are downright numinous!

With hopes that we can chat by email.

May God continue to Bless You!

Karie Garnier,

Slocan Valley, BC

To:        Bob Butts <>

Hi Bob, You asked if I stopped alcohol & caffeine, I never take anything with caffeine, though I do have had about 2 ounces of wine ( about twice a month) :when I do have a little wine I drink two glasses of water extra right afterward.  My husband, Dave, is doing this with me (he has had kidney stones and a constant running nose) and he is feeling alot better and his sinuses are clear.  I've cut his caffeine to one small cup of tea a day.  (I'm amazed he went along with that!!)  I have read and reread Dr. Batmanghelidge's books on Asthma, and  Health, healing... You're not sick you're thirsty"  The salt I am using at this point is  Pink Salt from the Himalayan mountains No additives of any kind.  also a Grey Sea salt from the coast of France.  I will try to get the Real Salt.  Since I received your e-mail yesterday I bumped up my salt to almost the 3/4 tsp ( I am still getting into the habit of salting food!) and I can FEEL  my sinuses draining and I feel better.. no headache today.  Thank you Bob.. I can't wait to e-mail you with all the good results.. I am hopeful to go back to my Cardiologist in September AND my pulmonary specialist as well and be able to show them how well I am without all those drugs.  My blood pressure is averaging 110/77 these last two days.. imagine how good things will be as I lose weight and continue exercising.. something I have not yet done these last two months due to chronic asthma and illness.. something I think I can say good bye to now.  Sincerely IN HIM Barbara Laurie

I have been off coffee for about 2 months now and have been doing the Water Cure for 2-3 weeks, at the rate of 1 gallon or more per day. The wrinkled skin on the back of my hands has greatly improved. The chronic swelling in my knee has diminished a lot. I can bend my knee joint much better now. This knee has been this way for 2 or 3 years. The slight numbness in the foot of that leg is GONE. I look forward to more improvements.

Now I consider myself a lucky doctor that I was introduced to water therapy. My success rate has gone up many fold. Before I used to treat for two or three weeks to get results. Since incorporating the water cure results have been seen in just a matter of days. I have been working on a variety of ailments, especially asthma, angina, intermittent cludication, arthritis and peptic ulcers. The results are very promising.

I have been on Dr. Batmanghelidj’s “Water Cure” for about 3 ½ months.

I had quite a few problems to begin with. Sinus problems, chronic headaches, stomach problems, ulcers and back pain. It seems the water program took care of them all! I was under a doctor’s care for my back and stomach problems and I was never a big fan for taking drugs though I did try some for these conditions but then backed off. With the water, it seemed to work and didn’t cost anything. My doctors are aware of the changes in me. They really didn’t have any response; in fact, they were shocked with the process I went about doing. They were kind of amazed at this. I sure hoped they would pass this advice along to other patients. Many of the problems people are experiencing can be cured with just water and salt instead of drugs.

I am a partner with Santarelli Brothers and we have about 16 employees. They are now aware of the Water Cure program too. One employee had sinus problems for the last 20 years and after 2 ½ months he says it seems to have corrected his problems.

I have told other people I have met here and here and even tell doctors about it when I meet them. Some say, “Boy, it sort of makes sense.” It’s like someone threw a brick at them. They may even try it themselves? I was even playing golf when I told some people. On the course there is a lot of people with back problems. I tell them they can be cured with just water and salt. I think the government is more concerned with illegal drug related deaths and they may be looking past the legal drugs themselves. They’re not trying to correct what I think is causing more deaths than the legal drugs.

It seems so simple and easy, yet, it’s FREE! So many people don’t believe it, but if they tried it, they would see that it could correct many illnesses I have discussed this with other business owners and imagine if their employees tried it, they would cut down on sick time. SO EASY TO DO! You just put a quart of water on your desk and drink it. When you fill it back up, you have your 2 quarts before you know it.

It doesn’t cost you anything to try this. And as I said, it may take a few days to work if your body is really dehydrated. It took me about a month and from there, it just took off! It’s amazing something so simple, like 1 plus 1 is two, could help so much. I have such success with this; I don’t have a problem with this testimonial to circulate.

I want to spread the word! Every one should hear this and listen!!

Thank you for what you are doing to inform people about the water cure. I am trying it and have already had some relief from my dry, burning eyes (after a few days). I also have Parkinsonism and many little aches and pains. We'll see! About the web site, I have a suggestion. It would be "so" much easier to read without the background graphic, which really interferes with the words one is trying to read. A plain white background would be nice. Sincerely.

Dear Dr. Batmanghelidj,

Thank you for your book "Your Body's Many Cries for Water." I have purchased copies for my children as they are all dehydrated and need water but they look at me as though I'm crazy even after seeing their mother and how she has lost weight, cured a "whiplash" neck problem she has had for over 20 years and cured a migraine headache problem she has suffered from for 20 years also. My wife also no longer suffers from allergies and I could go on and on. We are both eternally grateful to you for this knowledge.

It's too bad people think it can't work because it's too simple and free. 

I have been diagnosed with a benign prostate gland and have difficulty getting sleep at night so the temptation to cut back on my water intake is always there. Is there something I can do to solve my problem (short of drugs). I've tried saw palmetto but it doesn't seem to help.

First I would like to express my deepest thanks and gratitude to Mr. Robert Butts and to you Dr. Batmanghelidj for your unselfish determination in bringing the importance of a healthy diet and adequate water consumption, 2 quarts mimumum per day, to my attention. It is this writer's belief that these two men are solely responsible for saving my life. Until then, I drank about 15 cups of coffee a day and no water. 

Three months ago, I was physically and mentally in shambles. I was suffering from severe chest pains, shortness of breath and lack of energy. I had visited physicians that had all the wrong answers. They prescribed medications and expensive test procedures. The outcome was depletion of my funds and patience, however, I was still left with ill health. 

After reading material provided by Dr. Batmanghelidj I discovered the answers to my problems were as clear as the nose on my face. For as always in life, during a crisis, we are so consumed with the problem that we forget the basics of what we are, which is 78% water. During a physical crisis of ill health, we usually follow the traditional avenues of medicine, tests and surgery when nine out of ten times the answer is as close as the faucet on the kitchen sink. We as human beings possess the most magnificent machinery of biological wonder but like all machinery it requires lubrication. If not properly maintained, it simply becomes rusty and shuts down. It is ironic that we give our possessions so much attention ( like making sure our cars, trucks, lawn mowers are gassed and greased), yet though our ignorance and inattention we ignore the greatest machines of all............... OURSELVES! 

With the knowledge I have gained, I now possess good health and clarity of thought that I haven't enjoyed in quite a long time. I owe this to the simplicity of adequate water intake, proper diet and vitamin and mineral supplements. In closing, I would like to say, we are all unique and wonderful and deserving the best of treatment that we can give ourselves. Replenish your body and your life - DRINK WATER!

I have been writing this letter to you for over two years now. I just wanted to take the opportunity now to finally thank you and Connie for enlightening me about the "Water Cure." 

I first heard about this on the radio as part of your CK Auto commercial and then again while you were being interviewed by Bob Perks That was the day I decided to call you. You invited me to come to your office to meet you and to discuss the program. I must say, I was very skeptical and was sure there would be some type of purchase required. At this point I didn't care. As I related to you that day, I had been suffering for many years with night-time leg cramps and lower back pain. I also was suffering from occasional flare-ups from my diverticulitis problem. Needless to say, there was absolutely no cost involved. Your enthusiasm was so genuine and you freely shared all of the information. 

The next day I immediately put the plan into effect. I gave up caffeine completely and made sure that I drank the right amount of water. Bob, by the third day I could not believe it! My leg cramps disappeared completely and my back pain had been greatly reduced. I also gave up taking 2- tbs of "Metamucil" and six "Tylenol" tablets ever day. During those first months of enjoying being pain free I was able to focus on the more important aspects of my life. I have revisited some of my old dreams and have actually achieved some of them and am pursuing many more. I am happy to report to you that today I feel fantastic. I have the energy that had when I was a young man. I have lost twenty five pounds and have maintained a weight of between 175 and 180 lbs. I am proud to say that I am a water cure advocate and have shared this with everyone I know. Please keep up the good work.

Regarding Dr. Batmanghelidj's Water Cure, I started increasing my water consumption about three months ago, I began to feel better and younger to the point where I put off an early retirement at age 70, and continue to work full time with no immediate retirement in mind. I further became convinced to drink more water when I read Dr. Batmanghelidjs book, and attended his two hour seminar. Dr. Batmanghelidj's book entitled "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" should be changed to "Your Millions of Body Cells Cry for Water." I learned at the seminar that all of your cells require a sufficient amount of water to function properly, and if I don't give them enough water, many of our common ailments and sicknesses are the end result. I have recognized that when my body signals thirst, I now reach for a glass of water instead of a cup of coffee or a soda.

I have always been conscious of my health by exercising and eating good wholesome food. Now I have added the eight classes of water which I now consider the missing link to even better health. 

I thank many people in Northeastern Pennsylvania for encouraging me to drink more water, and I in turn have been encouraging my relatives, friends, employees and customers to do the same. I usually start a conversation by asking how much they drink. If they say very little, I encourage them to drink more as per the previous mentioned reasons, If they say they drink a lot of water, I do notice that healthy sparkle in their eyes. 

I belong to the local YMCA and when I'm doing my round on the Nautilus equipment, I do notice the healthy looking bodybuilders making frequent trips to the water fountain. As I am writing this letter, I have an 8oz glass of clear, sparkling, cool water at my side. 

One last thing, I also follow Dr. Batmanghefidj's advice that if you are going, to drink the required amount of water daily, you need to add a little bit of salt back into your system.

It is a pleasure to sit down and chronicle the effects that this lifestyle change has meant to me, both professionally and personally. On a professional basis, I was asked to listen to a tape called "Your Bodies Many Cries for Water." A.W.A.N.E.’s Executive Director Dick Healy thought it important as manager of A.W.A.N.E.’s employee assistance program to help this health concept involving water.
