My mother, who is 95, has suffered from bouts of confusion and weakness due to unintentional chronic dehydration for several years now - mostly in the dry winter weather. Drinking water on a schedule has cleared up her symptoms, and has been the only thing that has worked. Her schedule: drink approximately 45 ounces of water a day. Start first thing in the morning with 8 oz., then 4 oz. at breakfast; then sip on water for a total of 20 oz. by the end of lunch, 35 oz. by the end of dinner and the last 10 oz. after dinner, in particular 6 to 8 oz. in the last hour before going to sleep. If my mother is confused and weak, a little unrefined sea salt in her water helps turn her around, otherwise, I just put it on her food. She has also sometimes experienced agitation at night, and sometimes sleepless nights and hallucinations. Drinking water on her schedule - in particular drinking water with a little sea salt in the evening - has cured that. She goes to sleep, and doesn't go too many hours overnight without drinking water. Drugs have not helped, and can be dehydrating. When she first had symptoms of confusion in 2007, she went to the hospital; the IV drip they gave her cleared up the confusion and helped her regain her strength. After three years of having to go to the hospital two or three times each winter, I discovered that if she drank water on a schedule, she could avoid becoming confused and going to the hospital. And drinking water is a much quicker cure for confusion than going to the hospital, which involved five days of IV fluids. I've seen her turn around in a half day by drinking water; sometimes in one or two days. One good indicator of dehydration for my mother is a flushed face. When she is dehydrated, her face gets red; also, her eyelids.
My mother sometimes needs encouragement and help drinking water; sometimes this has meant spoon feeding her the water. Sometimes it is difficult to get her to drink, and 45 oz. is about the maximum she can take - perhaps 48 oz. My mother weighs 120 lbs. A larger person might drink more water; it might take a little experimenting to find out what each person needs. 38-40 oz. a day is the very minimum for my mother to stay healthy. I don't live in the same city as my parents, so I have not had the chance to keep my mother on a schedule consistently. I've been going there every two months. It has been difficult for her to stay on her schedule when I'm not there, but drinking on a schedule has worked every time she has been confused and weak. By observing how my mother responds to the water, I have been able to arrive at a schedule that works for her. In particular, drinking water in the evening has made a big difference. I have also made sure she eats well when I'm there, giving her seven or eight vegetables a day and several different fruits, and no alcohol or caffeine.
I recommend to everyone to remember to drink water! My mother wasn't drinking enough for years, and it finally hit her all at once with her first bout of confusion. Dehydration can affect different people in different ways. This is how it has affected my mother.
I've attached a photo of my mother and me taken on her 95th birthday in September, 2011. I hope this letter will be of help to others who may have a family member with similar symptoms. Water - and unrefined sea salt - have made a tremendous difference for my mother!

Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You both look
great, but neither of you could pass for a 96 year old, not even a 70 yer old.
Being she is on days away from 96, I'm calling her 96. We will get these out all
Maybe we should call this: Looks like this 96 year old found the fountain of youth. Bob Butts
We have had many
people write to us about all the health problems that water and salt got rid of,
with insomnia being one of the easiest. That being the case, I kind of ignored
it because its a no-brainer, or so I thought. Then I came down with insomnia and
I drink lots of water and use plenty of sea salt. After more than a month of not
sleeping well, it hit me. I quit my after dinner vitamins and other nutrients
and that night I slept perfect. In fact, I cut my vitamins etc. in half and have
had no trouble sleeping since.

Just thought I'd give you an update on the progress of the watercure treatment. I have now been drinking 2 litres of water per day and adding 3/4 tsp celtic sea salt to my meals for just over 2 months, including a daily intake of vitamin B6 which Dr. Batmanghelidj suggests for hot flushes. I am also eating alot more fresh fruit and vegtables plus nuts and seeds. My depression and mood swings which I suffered for a couple of years have gone. My hot flushes have greatly reduced. I am not taking any drug of any kind and feel wonderful. I have also noticed my skin is much softer, I am sleeping much better and feel more relaxed in general. I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for supporting Dr Batmanghelidj and for your watercure2 website. I have started sharing the watercure with my family and will certainly share this with people I come in contact with.

I have been on the water cure for a little over three months. Besides a noticeable overall improvement in health, (more energy, no more allergies) I finally cleared up the chronic insomnia that has been bothering me for the last thirty plus years! My use of sleeping meds are over. I sleep a lot deeper and require much less sleep.
