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, never drink water from a PLASTIC container. Use non-refined, ocean salt ONLY ) ( You can find non-refined, gray, sea salt in any better health food store)
Dr. B recommends you drink at least a half-hour before meals and about 2 1/2 hours after meals for best results(after heavy meat meal as much as 4 hours).
… “Dehydration (92 % of North Americans are chronically dehydrated) is a devastating stress on the body and it’s cells. Signs of hunger may be a warning flag that your body is in 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.
SUGGESTED PROGRAM FOR WATER & SALT INTAKE
This information comes from the books Dr. Batmanghelidj wrote.
The formula for water intake is half your weight in ounces of water divided by 5 or 6 for the number of times you can drink the water throughout the day and the size of the container or amount of water you drink each time. IMPORTANT: When you drink your water, get it down in 5-6 minutes, “Don’t nurse it”.
EXAMPLE: For a 300 lb. person – half is 150 ounces divided by 5 equals a 30 oz. bottle
Use a 32 oz. bottle 5 times a day or a 24 oz. bottle 6 times a day
SALT: Unrefined Sea salt is best (highest mineral content). When you add salt to water, use a measuring teaspoon. The rule of thumb is 1/8 teaspoon for every 16 oz.; 1/4 teaspoon for every 32 oz (1 quart); 1/2 teaspoon for 64 oz., or 1 full teaspoon for 1 gallon. (Some people will need less salt, others more). This is a starting point, not a set rule. You can just add the salt to your food or add the salt to the water and shake or stir it. The best way is to just throw the salt into your mouth and chase it with water. (Better way is to have one tea spoon of unrefined sea salt dissolved in a one gallon GLASS BOTTLE, ready to be used)
NOTE: If your ankles, fingers, or eyelids swell, don’t do the salt for two days, just drink the water. Then on the 3rd day begin taking the salt again. NOTE: If your kidneys are not working well, then don’t follow this program. If you still want to try it on your own, just drink one eight-ounce glass of water and wait until you go to the bathroom. Then drink another glass. When your kidneys come up to speed (input matches output), then start the salt slowly to make sure your kidneys are working ok.
I discovered that histamine is a vital chemical messenger in the brain. Histamine has a most important function not written about in medical textbooks. It is in charge of water intake and drought management in the body. It is less active when the body is fully hydrated, and becomes increasingly active when the body becomes dehydrated. This was the connection I was looking for. In short, histamine produces pain when an area in the body is suffering from drought!
I have seen water completely reverse conditions such as: Asthma. Angina. Hypertension. Migraine headaches. Arthritis pain. Back pain. Colitis pain and chronic constipation. Heartburn and hiatal hernia. Depression. Chronic fatigue syndrome. High cholesterol. Morning sickness. Overweight problems. Even heart problems needing bypass surgery.
The Mayo Clinic had pronounced Lloyd Palmer, of Minnesota, as incurable. Since 1965 he had suffered from excruciatingly painful arthritis of his spinal column — ankylosing spondylitis. His spine twisted and lost movement until, he says, he became a “walking comma.”
He suffered pain for 31 years, until he started to drink water and take salt. He writes: “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 every day for allowing me to finally be pain-free.” Lloyd Palmer’s story is so incredible that Paul Harvey reported it on his ABC News program. He also wrote a syndicated column, printed in a few hundred newspapers.
Prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Regain your memory, even in old age. THINK! The brain is 85 percent water. When water in the brain becomes insufficient, the brain shrinks. The plum-like cells become prune-like. Only in their natural fully hydrated state are brain cells able to connect and “talk” to one another, and we are able to remember things. This is why my research indicates that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by chronic dehydration of the brain cells. When dehydrated, many brain cells die. Unlike other cells in the body, new brain cells are not produced to replace the dying ones. Learn to prevent brain cells’ early death. Learn to even partially reverse some of the damages of dehydration of your brain.
Prevent heart disease. Cure angina pain. Read the letters on pages 92 and 93 from Sam Liguori and 90-year-old Loretta Johnson, long-time angina sufferers whose conditions were cured completely.
Cure asthma in a few days – forever. In chapter 9 of my book, you will read how asthma and allergies occur. You will read testimonials from several asthma sufferers who describe how water and salt saved them from constant shortness of breath, and possible suffocation and death from a more severe attack of asthma. They are just a few of the 14 million asthmatics in this country — 12 million of them children. Several thousand die every year from suffocation. Dehydration that manifests itself in the form of asthma in still-developing children will undoubtedly produce some genetic damage — because of altered DNA environment in dehydrated cells. Please join me in my crusade to end asthma in five years. We can do it. All you need to do is to understand how it occurs. You can then advise others who suffer from asthma. The simplicity and effectiveness of the cure is a miracle. You cannot stand on the sidelines of this human suffering!
Cure # 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.
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 pancreas.
Cure # 2: Water prevents and cures arthritis.
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.
Cure # 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 complications.
Cure # 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 angina’s cure.
Cure # 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.
Cure #6: 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 rectum.
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.
Cure # 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.
Cure # 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 medication.
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.
For more information about my medical breakthrough on the topic of chronic unintentional dehydration and the diseases it causes, other than what is posted on this site, refer to my books and tapes – products of over 20 years of fulltime research.
F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
Luckily just a few years ago, John-Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD, discovered that most chronic fatigue symptoms disappeared within 1-2 hrs after being given ordinary table salt (sea salt would have been much better), and that chronic fatigue was generally caused by chronic low levels of salt in the body, and yes, systemic dehydration! Next to water, minerals are the backbone of cell physiology. Although they are represented in the blood to a lesser extent, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, chromium, copper, manganese, boron, vanadium, silicon, and some others maintain life inside the cells of the body. There are more of them inside the cells than there are in the blood. The first thing they do is osmotically hold on to water and regulate the plum-like volume and structure of the cells from inside. They also regulate the acid-alkaline balance inside the cell.
When these elements are adequately present in the cell interiors, they osmotically and naturally pull and keep water in the cell. When these elements are less than adequately available, the method of water delivery into the cells is by forced injection through “showerheads,” which are formed in the cell membrane to let only water in. To do this, added pressure-injection pressure-is needed.
Proportionate to the level of mineral deficiency in the cell interior, injection pressure is adjusted to do the work. At a certain level, the rise in injection pressure becomes significant and is called hypertension. Hypertension denotes mineral deficiency in the interior of the cells of the body-a state of general mineral deficiency. Once this deficiency is corrected, and in conjunction with adequate salt intake, the blood pressure becomes normal once again. The more functionally important intracellular minerals are: Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium. The lowly celery stick doesn’t get much respect. Popular primarily as a low-calorie snack or cocktail garnish, celery actually has significant health benefits, including reducing blood pressure. Research at the University of Chicago Medical Center are credit with one of the first studies of celery’s effects on blood pressure, which was prompted when the father of one of the scientists noted a drop in his blood pressure from 158/96 to 118/82 after eating ¼ pounds of celery (about four stalks) daily for just one week.
Studies show that celery’s blood-pressure-lowering effects are due to a compound called 3-n-butyl-phthalide, which can reduce blood pressure by an average of 12 -14 percent. According to researchers, phthalide relaxes the arterial muscles that regulate blood pressure, allowing the vessels to dilate. Phthalide also reduces blood levels of stress hormones that can raise blood pressure by causing vessels to constrict. If you have high blood pressure and want to give celery a try, eat four to five stalks a day for a week and observe the effects. But don’t overdo it.
I have been using water and sea salt for over two months now. My high blood pressure is back to normal and even lower. My lifelong headaches are gone. My backache is gone and my energy is up. The huge bulging varicose veins on the backs of my legs are 100 percent gone on one leg and 50 percent gone on the other. Will they totally go away in time? I am 58 years old and have had typical “aging” prostate for years – difficult nighttime urination. There is no change in that yet. Will it eventually improve? Also, I drink two to three times the amount of water indicated by body weight – am I supposed to increase my salt intake to match it? Thanks so much. This has helped me more than anything, health wise, that I have ever tried.
That’s wonderful! I see no reason why your prostate shouldn’t get better. That is certainly a lot of water. I hope you are taking the ¼ teaspoon of high mineral sea salt with each quart. Keep us updated on your success.
I had high blood pressure and my joints ached with pain before I tried your “water cure.” Since then, I have lowered my blood pressure tremendously and I feel none of the pain that once held me back from performing at my best. I once was so frustrated and tired! As an actor and full time salesperson, I lacked the energy and enthusiasm to make my life the way I know it should have been. Now, I perform easily and I feel none of the pain I once did.

Lioyd Palmer of Albert Lea, Minn., suffered from arthritis of the spinal column for 30 years. Gradually, the disease ankylosed.
Ankylosing spondylosis is the kind of arthritis that leaves a patient so crippled – so “bent over” – that Palmer described himself as “a walking comma.”
But he read the Batmanghelidj book. He started drinking copious quantities of water (with some added salt). He is now pain-free, and his blood pressure is normal. It is not easy to drink that much water. It’s recommended that water be consumed between meals. That makes it more difficult to many. But Dr. Batmanghelidj says water intake is intended to “help digestion rather than dilute the food. Why added salt? “Salt helps to extract the acidity and carry it away from the medium.” At first glance, these may seem to be miracle cures. But an understanding of mechanisms of these disease easily explains the “water cure.” Adequate hydration ensures normal blood flow, relieving migraines, and keeps at bay the triggers, such as histamine that prompt an asthma attack.
Improvement in the aches and pains of arthritis also make sense, given that 85 percent of cartilage and virtually all of the synovial fluid lubricating the joints are water. Drinking water also restores the protective mucous membranes of the GI tract, soothing ulcers and other stomach problems. Furthermore, water is nature’s best diuretic If you are experiencing chronic dehydration from not drinking enough water, or from drinking water-depleting drinks such as coffee, beer or beverages containing sugar, your body tries to prevent respiratory water loss by producing histamines which close off the capillaries in your lungs. Through the constriction of these capillaries, water loss is reduced, but of course breathing is made far more difficult. It’s important to understand that the body is doing this on purpose. The body is producing histamines as a strategy, not as a disease or something gone awry. The body wants to constrict the capillaries in your lungs because it is trying to save your brain. There’s another fascinating point on chronic dehydration and weight loss that’s worth mentioning here, too: many people who are attempting to lose weight end up in a state of chronic dehydration because they don’t want to drink water for fear that it will add “water weight” to their bodies. They actually impair their body’s ability to metabolize fat because they’re afraid to drink enough water on a regular basis. In reality, being fully hydrated is a prerequisite to weight loss. If you want to lose weight, you have to give your body enough water so that it’s no longer in a state of emergency. When the body is in a state of chronic dehydration, or a state of emergency, it will not let go of fat supplies easily. It wants to hold on to everything it can eat or drink. The only way to convince your body to let go of body fat, and start metabolizing body fat, is to drink a lot of water – enough water so that your body feels safe in letting go of unneeded calories. (Remember: water has zero calories, is low-carb, and has zero grams of fat, so drink up!) Heartburn, arthritis, lupus, asthma, ‘high cholesterol’, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer formation, hot flushes and menstrual problems, obesity, allergies, bulimia, chronic fatigue syndrome, ME, angina, lower back pain, gout, kidney stones, skin disorders, diabetes, fungal/yeast overgrowths, multiple sclerosis, allergies, migraine headaches, general aches and pains, morning sickness, depression, heavy/burdensome periods, colitis, dyspepsia, peptic ulcers.
All, in various ways, linked to a chronic state of dehydration?
- Brain function: The brain comprises 2% of the body’s total weight, yet receives 15-20% of the blood supply, mostly comprised of water. Dehydration will affect cognitive ability drastically, and, through histamine’s action, can create depressive states (many anti-depressant medications are anti-histamines).
- Bone function: Bones require plentiful supplies of water. 75% of the weight of the upper body, for instance, is supported by the water core contained within the fifth lumbar disc, the remaining 25% by muscle fibers around the spine.
- Nerve function: Microstreams exist along the length of nerves which transport nutrients and conduct energy along microtubules to the synapses to transmit messages. Dehydration disrupts proper nerve function, resulting in the sensation of pain.
- Hydrolysis: Water, far from being an inert solvent, is intricately involved in the body’s water-dependent chemical reactions. Lack of water means incomplete or faulty metabolic processes, with obvious implications for continued health and well-being. Proteins and enzymes, for instance, do not function as well in acidic solutions of higher viscosity (stickiness) where the body is dehydrated.
- Cellular energy: As water is drawn through the cell membrane, its osmotic flow generates a voltage gradient which can be used in the manufacture of ATP and GTP energy. Dehydration will obviously affect the proper functioning of cells and even kill them.
- Histamine: This neurotransmitter plays a major role in activating systems which encourage water intake when dehydration is detected. Functions in the body which consume large quantities of water are cut back, namely the bronchial tubes constricted to cut down on water use in the lungs; increased peristalsis in the bowels to wring more water out of faecal material, and so on. Other signs of histamine’s activity, namely allergies, asthma, depression and chronic pains, are interpreted by the physician as ‘disease’ and treated with anti-histamines, pain-killers (analgesics), etc. Thus the signals of thirst are turned off and the dehydration state continues unabated.
- Dyspepsia (heartburn/reflux): Over time, this can lead to ulceration and even cancer. Dr Batmanghelidj recommends that these conditions – also gastritis andduodenitis – be treated with water alone as they are one of the body’s major thirst signals. Arrested in his native Iran by the Revolutionary Council during the troubles of the late 1970’s, Dr B was confined to Evin prison, Tehran, during which time he successfully treated with water alone over three thousand people complaining of dyspeptic pain and associated symptoms.
- Digestion: Requires plentiful supplies of water. The stomach relies on mucus lining the walls to shield it from the effects of the stomach’s hydrochloric acid. A bicarbonate solution is produced from the cells in the lining which neutralises any acid attempting to break through the mucus. Water is needed to maintain this effectivedefence system. Too little water, and the mucus barrier is ineffectual, the acid will penetrate and will lead to pain. Ideally, water should be consumed half an hour before a meal, in time to anticipate the production of digestive acid from glands in the stomach wall.
- Ulcers: Often located at the valve between the stomach and duodenum. Said to be caused by curved bacteria known as helicobacters( Heliobactor pylori). Yet many people have helicobacters in their small intestine and stomach, yet not all of them suffer from ulcers. Histamine-producing nerves are located at this site, which monitor the through-put of acidic food chyme from the stomach into the intestine. Histamine has growth-hormone effects on these micro-organisms, resulting in small intestine bacterial overgrowths . Once again, an adequate regime of water intake will allow all the functions relating to digestion to normalize. Prolonged water intake should therefore be considered before more drastic drug treatments are entered into.
Interview with Dr.B. Heartburn can be cured with water. I use the word “cured” because it is a sign of dehydration. When you cure dehydration, the disease will go.
Not only asthma, allergies and lupus, but also heartburn which is a major problem in the United States.
Yes, yes. Actually, water will cure heartburn much faster than any medication.
So if you’re having heartburn after a spicy dinner, just drink a bunch of water?
The best thing is to drink water before food. Drink water half an hour before food if you’re a heartburn sufferer. That is the best time because that water will go into the stomach and then into the intestines and get absorbed. Then that water is re-secreted entirely in the stomach, simultaneously priming the mucus membrane to receive food. And, water is in the stomach to be used for liquefaction of food – to break it, to prepare the food into smaller particles so they can be absorbed. That is what water does. If you don’t drink water beforehand, the body doesn’t have enough water that it can liberate for other activity. Any water that is in your body is already engaged in an activity. You need fresh water for fresh activity. If you’re introducing solid food, this is a fresh activity. You need fresh water to dissolve it and break it down.
Basically, the major pains of the body, such as, heartburn, rheumatoid joint pain, back pain, colitis pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgic pain, even angina pain are signs of dehydration in the human body. Where you have pain, it’s showing that that area is dehydrated. The mechanism is very simple. Toxic chemical waste builds up when you don’t drink enough water. If there is not enough water to wash away the chemical toxic waste from an area that is still active metabolizing, then toxic waste builds up. Histamine is a main neurotransmitter in charge of water regulation in the body. Histamine is the element that everyone takes antihistamine for, but histamine is a good guy. It is regulating the available water in the body according to very strict rules.
You don’t want to dry it up with antihistamine.
It’s harming your body.
Yes. What you want to do is provide the water that histamine is seeking. Once you give the body water, it acts as an antihistamine itself. In other words, histamine is no longer concerned with dehydration.
And then salt is really important too. In your book you mention that the salt works on your brain cells and prevents Alzheimer’s Disease.
Yes. The brain is 85 percent water and it lives in a salty lake. It is encased in a salty lake. Cerebral spinal fluid is a very salty environment and in order to make it salty, salt is pumped into this environment constantly. Salt is responsible for taking acid out of the brain cells. There are nine trillion brain and nerve cells that constantly chatter to one another. They use up energy and there is toxic waste. There is acidity involved in the toxic waste. Salt goes into the cell and pushes the acid out. And then this acid is taken out of the system by a mechanism of pumping systems and taken to the kidneys and flushed out. If we are short of salt and the toxic waste builds up in the cell environment of the brain, then hydrogen iron acidity, which lowers the pH making it more acidic, will eat away into the brain cell mechanism.
We’re told not to have salt because of the high blood pressure.
This is where medical science has gone wrong because the human body retains salt in order to keep a body of water outside of the cells of the body. From this body of water, which is called edema fluid, water is filtered and injected into the vital cells. There is a reverse osmosis program that the body operates. The drier the body becomes the higher the injection pressure has to be for the operation of the reverse osmosis. This injection pressure is measurable and we call it hypertension. This injection pressure force is needed in order to force water into the vital cells. You take water and some salt and expand the volume of water outside of the cells and allow water to get into the cells and this need for reverse osmosis that operates across the board in the body is taken away and so the blood pressure drops. So water and salt are better medications for lowering blood pressure.
That is so interesting. Now, does this have any affect on diabetes?
Diabetes is another sign of dehydration. The brain needs water, 85 percent water and it needs salt. If your body is short of water and is low in salt, the body has to resort to make the blood a little more sweet or sugar it for asthmatic purposes and also to shut down secretion of insulin. Once insulin is secreted, it opens up the gates into all the cells and sugar will rush in, other elements will rush in and water will rush in. Insulin is the key to the gates for intake of elements into the cells of the body.
In dehydration, this key has to be inhibited because otherwise it will embarrass the circulation. But the brain will receive both the water and the sugar that the other cells are not receiving. In dehydration, the hydroelectric energy that water will generate in the brain is diminished so it needs more sugar to convert into energy elements.
So there is a logic behind old age diabetes. Insulin dependent diabetes is one of the autoimmune diseases which again is produced by dehydration.
So tumors cannot exist if you are well hydrated inside the body. If it’s that simple to reverse all these negative processes that are going on in the body that are harmful to us, then would this have an effect on our aging? Can we reverse the aging process?
Aging is a complication of dehydration because when you age, you gradually lose water from the surface of your skin. The circulation to the surface will diminish and gradually as the skin loses water, there isn’t anything coming back in its place. So you get the creases and t
This is so amazing. It makes me feel like all of us are just walking around, just drying up. Get more water!
Absolutely, we are all drying up. You see a lot of these people with spider veins and varicose veins. They are salt-deficient.
How much salt do you put in water?
You need basically 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt per quart of water. Sea salt contains the other sea minerals, 84 different minerals in trace quantities which are vital. A quarter teaspoon is 1-1/2 grams. One teaspoon is six grams. The body needs basically three to four grams of salt a day. That is when you are taking 10 glasses of water. If you are not taking the 10 glasses of water, a build up of salt intake will gradually make you swell. You need to constantly measure yourself. If you suddenly have gone up two or three pounds in two days, you have retained too much salt. Just drink water, don’t take salt for one day and then continue the next day.
Any pain you have in your body, assume initially it is due to dehydration. Pain in the body is a sign of dehydration in 99 cases out of 100. You need to drink water before your food, to have it available for the act of chewing, swallowing, breaking down food, absorbing and metabolizing the particles. You need water if you are exercising, before the exercise, because the exercise will expand your vascular bed and you will sweat more and you become very quickly dehydrated. So it is best to take water beforehand. You need water before you sleep because for eight hours you are going to be drying up gradually. In the hot bed, you perspire. Your vascular system expands. You breathe out a lot of water. You manufacture urine even though you don’t evacuate it until the morning. So you are dehydrated by first thing in the morning. The first thing in the morning, drink two glasses of water. It’s the best laxative there is. Within a half hour, two to three glasses of water will produce a better result if you are fully hydrated.
Those of you who are familiar with the work of the late Dr B. may own his book called “The Water Cure,” or “Water for health, for Healing, for Life: You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty.” He’s also the author of “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water.” Essentially, Dr. B is the foremost authority on the relationship between the consumption of water and states of health or disease in the human body..”
Body Electronics states : an indication you are drinking proper amount of water is when your urine does NOT discolor the water in the toilet bowl. Urine color should be EXTREMLY pale yellow ,almost clear. Please note: liquids like coffee, alcohol, various pops( like Coca Cola ,etc.), juices and teas are not water. These liquids require additional amounts of water ( double the amount of the ingested liquids) to be resolved and eliminated from your body. Water, the solvent of the body ( and best solvent on the planet),regulates ALL functions, including the activity of the solutes it dissolves and circulates.( minerals ,vitamins ,hormones, etc.)Water, with unrefined sea salt, prevents dry and itchy skin, excessive flatulence, CONSTIPATION ( with nowadays refined foods it is wise to supplement with psyllium fiber), dry nostrils and dry eyes,urinary incontinence and excessive flatulence. Hydrated skin will also look younger.
The intestines secrete a substance called motilin, which stimulates peristalsis; the waves of muscular activity that move food through digestive tract. Motilin is secreted in direct proportion to the amount of water one drinks. Lack of water will definitely lead to constipation. Such water intake produces copious amount of saliva which helps to alkalize various parts of your body ( with exception of your stomach , the rest of your body needs to be predominantly alkaline).If the acidic stomach contents without dilution and proper amount of alkaline saliva enter, the pancreas must secrete a watery bicarbonate solution into the duodendum or upper portion of the small intestine to rise the pH. In a state of dehydration this becomes very difficult and a body is faced with a dilemma; it can allow acidic stomach contents into the duodendum and risk damage and ulcers, or it can reverse peristalsis to send some of the food back towards the esophagus thus causing heartburn, acid reflux, nausea, hiatus hernia, what can possibly causeosophageal cancer.” Proper hydration will cure urinary incontinence, excessive flatulence,dry and itchy skin, dry nostrils, dry eyes (hydrated skin will also lookyounger).
Ancients knew that our body is made of four elements; water, earth(minerals),air and fire( energy).Water is a magical substance , the only one available in a solid, liquid and gaseous state simultaneously. Our body is about 75 % water, 15 % solids and 10 % air.( our brains are 90 % water). A water molecule at room temperature is not simply a H2O but 300-400 H2O joined together to form a GRAND MOLECULE ,which form net like structure. Healthy water has a high content of dissolved oxygen and responds to various pollutants by encapsulating them. Chlorine ,fluoride and many other pollutants have a devastating effect on water. Fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons due to their capacity to modify the metabolism of cells by changing the permeability of the cell membrane and by inhibiting certain enzyme systems. Inorganic ( non –cheleated) minerals commonly found in drinking water cannot be utilized by the body and are a health risk. Use cheleated or colloidal( trace) minerals.Tap water contains hundreds of harmful chemicals like dioxin,( remember Agent Orange used in defoliation of Vietnam forests, a very powerful carcinogen),aldicarb, polychlorinated biphenols, trichloroethylene, alachlor, lead, arsenic, aluminum( added to some water supplies to make it sparkle),mercury, asbestos, chloroform, methylene chloride, bromoform and countless others. New Scientist magazine reported that polluted water can cause brain damage ( your brain is 90-95 % water) that turns ordinary people into violent criminals. Toxic metals found in our drinking water ( never keep water, or anything else, in a plastic container) are linked to crime rates. For example; lead inhibits the action of glial cells and manganese interferes with levels of serotonin and dopamine , chemical messengers in the brain, linked to mood and behavior. Fluoride is not biodegradable, it causes genetic damage, and damages collagen production in bones. Fluoride is an immune system inhibitor and even in very small amounts slows down white blood cells.
