Water The Great Healer !

Water Cure (Hydrotherapy)

Water therapy has been used for centuries to heal the sick. Hydro- and hydrothermal therapy are traditional methods of treatment that have been used for the treatment of disease and injury by many cultures, including those of ancient Rome, China, and Japan. The ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water is an important ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing systems.

HYDROTHERAPY, HYDROPATHY, HYDROTHERAPEUTICS, AND WATER THERAPY:

The water cure; a mode of treating diseases by copious and frequent use of water, both internally and externally.

Dr. R. Lincoln Graham, M.D - "If the medical profession is ever called upon to answer in a High Court for its Sins of Omission, one of the first questions it will have to meet will be, "Why have you, for almost twenty centuries, neglected to use water as a therapeutic agent?" R. Lincoln Graham, M.D. from Hydro-Hygiene, The Science of Curing by Water.

Dr. Batmanghelidj MD - "The Simple truth is that dehydration can cause disease. Everyone knows water is good for the body. They seem not to know how essential it is to one's wellbeing. They do not know what happens to the body if it does not receive its daily need of water."

Julian Whitaker, MD - "Most of us do not naturally drink the amount of water necessary for improvement, so we function with low level dehydration and suffer a variety of diseases as a result."

Medical Report: A New Medical Discovery
by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.

The water cure; a mode of treating diseases by copious and frequent use of water I have used water to cure people who were suffering from "incurable" diseases. I have cured people who suffered for 10 years, 20 years, even 30 years from painful conditions produced by dehydration.

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.

Attention! It is easy to understand what water does in your body, but bear in mind there is more to it than just simply drinking water. You must learn to rehydrate your body gradually and carefully. You need to recognize your own particular early indicators of thirst. Not everyone is the same. You must learn what can happen to your own body when it becomes dehydrated. Not every body registers drought in the same way.

Depending on where the drought has settled, the initial indicators are different in different people. Dr. Batmanghelidj's Natural Miracle Cure Program is vital for your initiation into the new art of self-healing.

"Use 1/4 tsp. of sea salt for every quart of water you drink. Use a good sea salt, one with at least 80 minerals, liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can use the salt. Some put it in their water, some lick it off their hand, some season their foods after cooking. It's up to you. Make sure you take potassium daily (banana, orange juice,etc) "

No matter what the specific health or fitness goal, one cannot achieve the maximum benefit from any health program without drinking the right kind of water in the proper amount. All experts agree, that next to the air we breathe, water is the most important thing we will ever put in our bodies. It is surprising that so much time and money is being spent on supplements, organic foods and natural remedies (some of which are very subtle and delicate) but little attention is given to the quality and effect of the water with which those items are taken.

F. Batmanghelidj, M.D - "Day After Day ... Patient After Patient ...The Results Prove the Healing Power of Water"

Every function inside the body is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies.

Water is also needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. In fact, there are at least 50 reasons why the body needs sufficient water on a regular, everyday basis. Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your body's drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of water for the drought-stricken areas. When histamine and its subordinate "drought managers" come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned earlier.

This is why dehydration produces pain as its first alarm signal. If the dehydration persists and is not corrected naturally with water, it becomes symptom-producing and, in time, develops into a disease condition. This is why people who take antacids to silence their bodies’ thirst pain become more vulnerable and eventually develop other serious complications of dehydration.

Medical professionals have been educated to treat pain and disease with medications. They do not understand the problems associated with dehydration. Nowhere in their training as doctors are they taught what happens if one does not drink an adequate amount of water every day. learn more about the Miracles of Water

You're Not Demented, Just Dehydrated
By Peter Ragnar

"You don’t need to be stranded in a desert to feel the effects of dehydration. Almost all the people you see and meet on a daily basis are dehydrated. How many folks complain of a lack of energy? It’s the number one complaint in America. Insufficient energy is the first sign that the blood, tissues, and organs are not getting enough water, and your liver and brain are the least tolerant of a lack of water. This has led some medical researchers to conclude that Alzheimer’s disease is simply the result of long-term dehydration of the brain. The same loss of brain function that causes a lost and thirsty person to eat sand believing it to be water causes your wife, husband, mother, or father not to recognize you any longer. They are not demented, only thirsty."

"...Every time you move any body part, even a finger or toe, water is required. That’s why dehydrated people have so many aches and pains. It’s also why people look so old; their dehydrated organs steal the water from their skin in order to function. Remember, under ordinary circumstances, you expel up to a gallon of water every twenty-four hours. What do you think happens when you don’t replenish that supply? Your body experiences a drought condition! A mere two percent drop in hydration will make your short-term memory so fuzzy that you’ll be unable to remember your friends’ names, have trouble doing basic math, and forget where you put your keys. Since seventy-five percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated, it’s no wonder people are losing their minds. Yet, the solution is so simple: cool, clean water. Drink eight to ten eight-ounce glasses a day of pure water, and you’ll be amazed at how many ailments disappear. Don’t worry; you’re not demented—just dehydrated!"

The Role of Clean Water in Detoxification

Toxic OverloadWhat you take out of your body is just as important for your health as what you put into it. With todays chemical laden food production techniques and our sedentary, over indulgent lifestyles, our bodies are, more than any generation before us, likely to be saturated with toxins that are ingested from what we eat and drink and also generated by our own bodies. The role of heavy metals and xenobiotics (pesticides, herbicides, and industrial wastes) are responsible for a wide variety of adverse health effects. These accumulating toxins are insidious and prevalent agents capable of interfering with physiologic functions of all human systems. One cannot expect the normal detoxification systems of the body to function optimally when these substances are constantly present. There are more than 3,800 chemicals in daily use, many of which make their way into our drinking water.

An environmental health specialist at Stirling University in Scotland, Baillie-Hamilton details how toxins may be linked to dozens of serious health problems, including immune system diseases, neurological disorders, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, cardio-vascular diseases, cancer, hyper-sensitivity, obesity, musculoskeletal disorders and childhood health problems.

It is essential to drink plenty of pure water to detoxify. Many health care professionals are encouraging patients to undergo detoxification regimes. These programs encourage the body to unload its stores of accumulated environmental toxins. As the body ingests foods, water contributes in the breakdown and absorption of nutrients and is a key element in the removal of wastes. During detoxification, wastes that have been stored in adipose tissues are dumped into the bloodstream and lymph, and then sent to the liver and kidneys for processing and elimination. Here is where water’s fifth function, that of electronegative enhancer, comes into play: by optimizing the natural space between red blood cells, which reduces the risk of heart disease by helping to avoid clotting; and by allowing the fat cell to detox by off-loading metabolic wastes and environmental toxins into the bloodstream for elimination. This also assists in weight loss and reduces water retention.

  • Explains how to determine the quality and quantity of water that is best for you and the time during the day it is best to drink
  • Includes 10 water cures for profound physical rehydration, toxin removal, and remineralization

The book of water healingDrinking sufficient quantities of water is a necessity for optimal physical functioning, but it can also play a major role in the prevention and treatment of many diseases. Chronic fatigue, depression, eczema, rheumatism, gastric disorders, high or low blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and urinary infections are but a few of the many disorders that can result from not drinking enough water--and which can be treated by raising our intake of this vital liquid.

The physical assaults that our bodies endure from pollution, stress, overly rich and processed foods (often containing too much salt), and alcohol and tobacco have dramatically increased our daily need for water over what our ancestors required. Christopher Vasey explains not only why water is so essential to our health but also what quantities we should drink and when. He also discusses the qualities of different types of water and demonstrates which will best address certain conditions. In addition, he provides 10 water cures that will rehydrate the deepest levels of the body, remove toxins, and restore vital minerals.

The Complete Book of Water Healing "includes practical illustrations and step-by-step information on treating everything from children's ailments to sports injuries with therapeutic baths, steam treatments, hydrotherapy, and more.



Hidden Dangers in Water

Dr. Mercola - "If you have not heard of DBPs before, you need to pay close attention as it turns out that DBPs, not chlorine, are responsible for nearly all the toxic effects of chlorinated water. Chlorine by itself is relatively harmless, but its side effects, by producing DBPs, is what causes nearly all of the problems. As it turns out, DBPs are over 10,000 times more toxic than chlorine, and out of all the other toxins and contaminations present in your water, such as fluoride and miscellaneous pharmaceutical drugs, DBPs may be the absolute worst of the bunch." Robert Slovak has devoted himself to the science of water chemistry and water treatment for thirty years. In this video, he explains how attempts to disinfect your water may actually be killing you.

Pharmaceuticals found in drinking water

The essential guide to our contaminated drinking water From the Associated Press March 9, 2008 - "A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows. The presence of so many prescription drugs — and over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen — in so much of our drinking water is heightening worries among scientists of long-term consequences to human health. In the course of a five-month inquiry, the AP discovered that drugs have been detected in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas — from Southern California to Northern New Jersey, from Detroit to Louisville, Ky."

Chlorinated Tap Water

How to eliminate harmful toxins from your drinking waterMost people never give the dangers of chlorine a thought. After all, our elected public officials keep assuring us that chlorinated city tap water is completely safe for human consumption. Numerous scientific studies report that chlorinated tap water is a skin irritant and can be associated with rashes like eczema. "Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds called trihalomethanes which are carcinogens resulting from the combination of chlorine with compounds in water. These chemicals, also known as organochlorides, do not degrade very well and are generally stored in the fatty tissues of the body (breast, other fatty areas, mother's milk, blood and semen). Organochlorides can cause mutations by altering DNA, suppress immune system function and interfere with the natural controls of cell growth. Chlorine has been documented to aggravate asthma. Several studies also link chlorine and chlorinated by-products to a greater incidence of bladder, breast and bowel cancer as well as malignant melanoma. One study even links the use of chlorinated tap water to congenital cardiac anomalies. Anything you can do to filter tap and shower water that eliminates or minimizes chlorine would certainly be helpful and possibly curative for some immune system problems."

Note from Shirley
Best IonizersI do NOT drink distilled water or reverse osmosis water because of the demineralizing effects on the body. I do NOT drink tap water because of its pollutents including fluoride and chlorine. I do NOT drink bottled water because of the plastic toxicity and the impact on the environment. In my home, I drink water from my Athena water ionizer and I enjoy adding Terramin clay to my drinking water.

Cancer and Health Effects of Chlorine in Drinking Water -- Chlorinated tap water linked to birth defects --- Chlorinated water and Eczema

Why Purified, Distilled Bottled Water, and Reverse Osmosis Water are Bad For You and Your Animals

Inside the bottle- an expose of the bottled water industry The story of bottled waterThere is a perception among many people that bottled water is somehow more healthy or pure than water from their tap. This is simply an illusion of marketing. A four-year study by the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), released in 1999, found that one-fifth of the sampled bottled waters contained known neurotoxins and carcinogens such as styrene, toluene and xylene. Another NRDC study found that, out of 103 brands of bottled water, one-third contained traces of arsenic and E. coli. This means that out of a sample of 1,000 bottles sold in the U.S., at least 300 would have some level of chemical contamination. (The law firm of Baron & Budd, P.C provides information about water contamination problem)

Dog drinking from water bottleA Suffolk County Study in the USA tested 88 bottled waters and what they found was horrifying. It was this study which discovered the cancer agent, benzene, in Perrier and caused it to be withdrawn, but they also found: Freon, kerosene, toluene, trichloroethylene, and xylene in a number of other bottled waters. The most common plastic used in water bottle manufacturing is PET (polyethylene terephthalate), an environmentally unfriendly substance that actually requires 17.5 kilograms of water to produce only 1 kilogram of PET. In fact, more water is used to make PET bottles than is actually put into them.

So, if tap water and bottled water are bad for you, what's the alternative? Learn about Ionized Water, the safe, toxin-free, energized, alkaline drinking water


Demineralizing effect on the body by reverse osmosis water

Awareness of the importance of minerals and other beneficial constituents in drinking water has existed for thousands years, being mentioned in the Vedas of ancient India. In the book Rig Veda, the properties of good drinking water were described as follows: “Sheetham (cold to touch), Sushihi (clean), Sivam (should have nutritive value, requisite minerals and trace elements), Istham (transparent), Vimalam lahu Shadgunam (its acid base balance should be within normal limits)“ (Sadgir and Vamanrao 2003). That water may contain desirable substances has received less attention in guidelines and regulations, but an increased awareness of the biological value of water has occurred in the past several decades.

The "very clean waters" produced by reverse osmosis, (which also is use by most bottled companies) is called "hungry" or "death" water. It is so clean that nothing is left in it. The water is charged with positive ions instead of negative ions and is also acidic instead of alkaline. The water you drink is supposed to bring all nutrients to the destination and to flush out any free radicals.

Free radicals are basically poisoned waste products produced by smoking, drinking, inhaling polluted air and even by eating and exercising. Your body is like a car engine, every time you turn it on, it burns fuel to move your car, but by doing so produces smoke, which is poisoned.
If you take in this totally clean water then, instead of supplementing minerals to the body it does just the opposite - it takes them away. Can you see that? Can you see that if you would spill clean water over a dirty rock you would have some of the dirt being washed away with the clean water?

That is what happens with hungry (totally clean water) - except it does not take away the dirt but it depletes the body of minerals, calcium and anything else, as it passes trough the body: Everything except the free radicals because they are charged positively. This is also the case with the reverse osmosis water and the bottled water. As you know from school to positive magnets push each other away. So the solution is to drink water, which has a range of minus 250 to minus 800 mV with a PH in the range of 8.5 to 9.5.

What about all the other illnesses I said in the title that water is related to? Well, all illnesses are really only symptoms of too many free radicals (too much exhaust, smoke etc. which never made it out of the body) in the body! Let me repeat this, any illness is the body's effort to fix some foreign invader, which in most cases happens to be the poisoned waste products produced by the body and which can go nowhere because we have deprived the body of its "natural sewage system" when we took away the very things in the water which do just that.The production of the plastic also produces numerous byproducts that are extremely harmful to the environment. The Container Recycling Institute reported that 14 billion water bottles were sold in the U.S. in 2002, yet only 10 percent of these bottles were recycled - 90 percent ended up in the trash. That's an extra 12.6 billion plastic bottles for the landfills; bottles that contained water that was no more - and often less - healthy than tap water. learn more

The Miraculous Propeties of Ionized WaterZoltan P. Rona M.D. - "The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Purified water tends to be acidic and can only be recommended as a way of drawing poisons out of the body. Once this is accomplished, the continued drinking of purified water is a bad idea. Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter is slightly alkaline. Ozonation of this charcoal filtered water is ideal for daily drinking. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Ionized Water is the best possible drinking water. Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water. Avoid it except in special circumstances.

Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D. - "Water has the ability to attract and accumulate bio-energy. It also stores an energy memory of harmful or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed in the past. Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as well as 'dead'. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Salt and Water To Enhance Our Health

Dr. Jeffrey R. Cutler - "Many people believe that salt is harmful to the human body. The truth is we cannot live without salt (sodium chloride)"

An eight-year study of a New York City hypertensive population stratified for sodium intake levels found those on low-salt diets had more than four times as many heart attacks as those on normal-sodium diets – the exact opposite of what the “salt hypothesis” would have predicted.

Refined Salt: White Poison The problem with salt is not the salt itself but the condition of the salt we eat! Our regular table salt no longer has anything in common with the original crystal salt. Salt now a day is mainly sodium chloride and not salt. With the advent of industrial development, our natural salt was "chemically cleaned" and reduced only to sodium and chloride. Major producing companies dry their salt in huge kilns with temperatures reaching 1200 degrees F, changing he salt's chemical structure, which in turn adversely affects the human body.

An abundance of the ingredients in unrefined, unheated, real salt are as synonymous with life today as they were a billion years ago before single cells appeared here. Lack of them is synonymous with birth defects, organ failure, decay, diseases, premature aging and death at a young age.

According to Herman Aihara, the father of modern Macrobiotics, we still carry our own inner sea within each of us in the form of a saline interstitial fluid. This is the fluid that carries nutrient, messages, energy and even toxins to every part of our body, and that carries away the same toxic elements and more, as a result of daily metabolic process. It is very different to the water we drink, yet without even that, grossly contaminated and deconstructed form of H2O that we call tap water, we soon lose life force. Four days without food is tolerable. Four days without water is fatal. Not only is our body 75% water, our brain is 80% water and our blood 90%. Water is more than a carrier of other materials. It is a solvent, an infiltrator of cells, a digestion aid, a dilutor, a dilator, a nutrient transport system, a waste disposal system, an electrical message system, a chemical conduit, an energy combustor, a lubricant, a coolant and a latent heat bank. Some people even believe that water is the repository of emotion. And we thought all it did was quench our thirst.

The Healing Power of Sole (so-lay)

The mixture of water and crystal salt, called "sole" (so-lay), is the primordial soup of life, and the most flexible physical representation of pure solar and light energy.When water and this salt come together they create this new dimension, Sole. In German, the word sole, which is derived from the Latin word "sol", which means sun. Sole is nothing but the fluid materialization of sunlight. Sole means fluid sunlight or fluid light energy.

When water combines with salt the positive ions of the salt surround the negative ions of the water molecules and the negative ions of the salt surround the positive ions of the water molecules. The ions become hydrolyzed. In this process the geometrical structure of the salt and the water is changed and a totally new structure is formed, a third dimension. Water is no longer water and salt is not salt anymore. The crystalline structure of the sole is so profound that its vibration pattern lasts over 24 hours in our bodies. With the sole, you can have exactly that vibration pattern that the body is lacking when it is sick. But again, the quality of the salt is paramount for quality sole.

Every morning, take one teaspoon of sole mixed in a glass of good quality artesian or spring water. Drink this on an empty stomach before taking breakfast. The amount of water is up to you, but you only need one teaspoon of sole for your daily intake. The regularity is important. From a bio-chemical viewpoint, within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines are being stimulated. And this again stimulates the digestion and metabolism. The overall availability of electrolytes is built up and thus the conductivity in the body is increased, which in turn affects the circulation. The salt allows the current to flow once again.

All life started in this sea of water and salt, the primal sea. Every vital process in our universe, from the microcosms to the macrocosm are directly connected with the energy potential which comes about when water and this salt combine.

Benefits of Drinking Sole

  • The sole supplies the body with the natural energy stored in the crystals and the body can hold this up to 24 hours.
  • Can harmonize the alkaline/acidity balance in the body and normalize blood pressure.
  • Can dissolve and eliminate sediments which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism like arthritis and kidney and gall bladder stones.
  • Can lower the craving for addictive desires.
  • Can help with skin diseases by cleaning from inside out. click here for step by step how to make Sole

Salt Deficiency: the cause of many serious diseases

Both sea salt and rock salt were well known to the ancient Greeks who noted that eating salty food affected basic body functions such as digestion and excretion (urine and stools). This led to salt being used medically. The healing methods of Hippocrates (460 BC) especially made frequent use of salt. Salt-based remedies were thought to have expectorant powers.

Dr. Batmanghelidj MD - "Use 1/4 tsp. of sea salt for every quart of water you drink. Use a good sea salt, one with at least 80 minerals, liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can use the salt. Some put it in their water, some lick it off their hand, some season their foods after cooking. It's up to you. Make sure you take potassium daily (banana, orange juice,etc) "

Salt water when drunk has an expectorant effect in the stomach and increases gastric juice secretion. It raises the level of stomach acid, hastens its production, impedes or stimulates stomach motricity and emptying-rate (depending upon the salt concentration), increases the secretion of the pancreas, and at higher salt concentrations stimulates the formation of bile acids.

The Essential Health Benefits of Sea Water

Sea water has a history of therapeutic use. Its application to the body, warmed and usually combined with massage, is referred to as Thalassotherapy, originating from the Greek word thalassa. Both the Greeks and the Romans recognised the therapeutic effects of sea water. The immediate general effects of warm sea water application (it can penetrate the skin more easily when warm, and enter into the blood) is relaxing, regenerative and stimulating. The American Indians who resided in the Utah area near the Great Salt Lake regularly drank small quantities of the inland sea water. They discovered that this practice enhanced the effect of their herbal remedies. It was based on this folk use that Hartly Anderson set up a company to extract the exceptionally pure and concentrated form of sea water and to market it for health purposes.

Dehydration Facts
  • 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated (likely applies to half the world's population).
  • In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
  • Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
  • One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
  • Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
  • Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
  • A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focussing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
  • Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
Would you like a glass of water or Coca-Cola?
  • In many states in the USA, the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coca-Cola in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.
  • You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coca-Cola and it will be gone in two days.
  • To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coca-Cola removes stains from vitreous china.
  • To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a crumpled up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
  • To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
  • To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
  • To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, Remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
  • To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
  1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its PH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days.
  2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate), the commercial trucks must use the "Hazardous Material" place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.
  3. The distributors of Coca-Cola have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years! Now the question is, would you like a glass of water or Coca-Cola?

Your Bodies Many Cries for WaterYour Body's Many Cries for Water: You Are Not Sick, You Are Thirsty!

As a result of extensive research into the role of water in the body, the author, a medical doctor, believes that he has found chronic dehydration to be the cause of many conditions including asthma, allergies, arthritis, angina, migraine headaches, hypertension, raised cholesterol, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, depression, and diabetes in the elderly. According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, the body possesses many different thirst signals. A dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of your body's water needs. He describes a variety of more reliable ones, and helps you learn to understand when your body is calling for water. In this way, he claims you can prevent, treat, and cure a variety of conditions of ill health, at no cost, with what he calls nature's miracle medicine: Water. The author explains how much water one needs to drink a day to stay healthy, and why tea, coffee, and sodas are not good substitutes for water. This book explains a new discovery that lack of water in the body--chronic dehydration--is the root cause of many painful degenerative diseases, asthma, allergies, hypertension, excss body weight, andsome emotional problems including depression. The book explains the damaging effects of dehydration in the fourth dimension of time.

The Quality of Water can positively or negatively affect one’s health

Depending on what part of the country one lives in, it is easy to find trace amounts of nitrates, pesticides, heavy metals, radioactive compounds, petrochemicals and parasites coming from the local municipal water supply. The toxins and free radicals in these waters are made significantly more toxic to humans by the addition of chlorine -- a compound mandated by the public health department. The Environmental Protection Agency now reports that individuals who drink and bath in chlorinated surface waters (i.e., water from lakes, rivers and shallow wells) have a 50% greater likelihood of getting cancer in their lifetime. Most consumers are surprised to learn that one can absorb up to 600% more contaminants in your body in a ten-minute shower than in all the water consumed in a day. In January 2000, Sixty Minutes, the investigative TV program, reported that as many as 100 million Americans were drinking water contaminated with MTBE, a gasoline additive that has been leaching into our water supplies since 1992. MTBE is believed to cause cancer in concentrations as low as 10 parts per billion and unfortunately local water companies are helpless to remove it. Because of such contaminants, two out of every five households now have a water filter or drink bottled water, as will be discussed later, with no assurance of safety. The problem is that the average consumer and even most medical professionals do not know what is the best way to treat water or the best source of water to drink.

Toxic Overload Perchlorate, the explosive component of rocket and missile fuel, contaminates more than 500 drinking water sources in 20 states, serving well over 20 million people. Among contaminated sources is the Colorado River, which provides drinking water for Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas and other cities. Perchlorate can affect the thyroid gland’s ability to make essential hormones. For fetuses, infants and children, disruptions in thyroid hormone levels can cause lowered IQ, mental retardation, loss of hearing and speech, and motor skill deficits.

The Water we drinkThe Water We Drink : Water Quality and Its Effects on Health by Joshua I. Barzilay, Winkler, M.D. Weinberg,

The emphasis in the purification of drinking water has shifted from avoidance of infectious diseases to avoidance of chemical pollution. Barzilay and his colleagues give a brief history of the subject and then look at the methods, regulations, and science behind the current U.S. water supply. Their book is an attempt to give consumers the information they need about how the water purification system works, what problems it has, and where additional research is needed to clarify or dispose of those problems; accordingly, they cite relevant Web sites in the text so that readers can pursue particular subjects. The problems include antibiotics from farm runoff, dangerous because they can help raise the resistance of disease-causing bacteria, and chlorine, whose possible dangers need to be further researched and discovered. The authors even underline the faddishness of bottled drinking water. Appended tables of government-regulated and unregulated contaminant levels, of cancer-causing contaminants, and of mineral content in various bottled waters add further value to the informative, readable book.

Water Fluoridation Alert!

Respected Medical Professionals and Scientists are warning that water fluoridation has dangerous long-term consequences to health. For over 50 years, the U.S. government and media have trumpeted fluoride as a safe and effective means of reducing cavities, especially in children. But fluoride is not the benevolent and innocuous substance the public has been led to believe.

"I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. >Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable."Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association

"Fluoridation ... it is the greatest fraud that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated on more people than any other fraud has."Professor Albert Schatz, Ph.D. (Microbiology), Discoverer of streptomycin and Nobel Prize Winner

98% Of Western Europe Has Rejected Water Fluoridation. This includes Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. The predominant reason for Europe's rejection is the belief that public drinking water is NOT the appropriate vehicle with which to deliver medication to a population. India, and Japan have either rejected or banned its use in recent years. learn more about the health disasters caused by fluoride

"I do NOT drink distilled water or reverse osmosis water because of the demineralizing effects on the body. I do NOT drink tap water because of its pollutents including fluoride and chlorine. I do NOT drink bottled water because of the plastic toxicity and the impact on the environment. In my home, I drink water from my Athena water ionizer and I enjoy adding Terramin clay to my drinking water." Shirley

The Hidden Messages in WaterThe Hidden Messages in Water is an eye-opening theory showing how water is deeply connected to people's individual and collective consciousness. Drawing from his own research, scientific researcher, healer, and popular lecturer Dr. Masaru Emoto describes the ability of water to absorb, hold, and even retransmit human feelings and emotions. Using high-speed photography, he found that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward it. Music, visual images, words written on paper, and photographs also have an impact on the crystal structure. Emoto theorizes that since water has the ability to receive a wide range of frequencies, it can also reflect the universe in this manner. He found that water from clear springs and water exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted water and water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. Emoto believes that since people are 70 percent water, and the Earth is 70 percent water, we can heal our planet and ourselves by consciously expressing love and goodwill.

DR. EMOTO: "Think of it in terms of vibration. It's easy to understand that language -- the spoken word -- has a vibration. Well, written words also have a vibration. Anything in existence has a vibration. If I were to draw a circle, the vibration of a circle would be created. Drawing a cross would create the vibration of a cross. So if I write the letters L O V E, then these letters put out the vibration of love. Water can be imprinted with these vibrations. Beautiful words have beautiful, clear vibrations. But negative words put out ugly, incoherent vibrations which do not form clusters. Language is not something artificial, but rather is something that exists naturally. I believe that language is created by nature."

"...water is the mirror reflecting our level of consciousness, a large percentage of the people on the planet, at least 10 percent of the people, need to have the love and the kan-sha awareness." more about the Interview with Dr. Emoto

Conscious Water Crystals - The Power of Prayer Made Visible
Japan's Dr. Masaru Emoto has been conducting worldwide research on the effect of ideas, words, and music upon the molecules of water.


Water Cure - Hydrotherapy

Bathing in ancient times Ancient water therapy A Bavarian monk, Father Sebastian Kneipp helped re-popularize the therapeutic use of water in the 19th century. There are now many dozens of methods of applying hydrotherapy, including baths, saunas, douches, wraps, packs, and colon hydrotherapy.

Born in 1821, Kneipp was taken ill during his theological studies with pulmonary tuberculosis, at that time a fatal disease. Quite by chance, a small book on Hydrotherapy, authored in 1734 by Dr. Hahn, found its way into his hands, which motivated Kneipp to take short full-immersion dips in the icy waters of the winter Danube. The treatment enabled him to stimulate his physical stamina, or immune system, so much that his tuberculosis went into remission and he was able to complete his studies. Sebastian Kneipp was able to help his fellow students in much the same way, and, during his work as a curate, he cured a number of gravely ill patients to whom he had actually been summoned to administer the last rites. Such successes earned him the erivy and resentment of doctors and pharmacists alike. He was even arraigned before the court to answer charges of inexcusable "quackery". Subsequently, he was acquitted of all wrongdoing after he had described the difficult situation in the country, where a doctor was seldom available, and Kneipp was able to offer the judge persuasive advice about his own health. His book, "My Water Cure" (1886) took Germany by storm and once translated, spread throughout the world.
Kneipp also wrote "My Will : A Legacy to the Healthy and the Sick"

Detox BAthDetox Bath is an ebook that will take you on a journey of discovery of the amazing properties and benefits of water, and the history of the bath in various cultures, and of hydrotherapy. It will hold you by the hand and gently reveal an extraordinarily simple and easy ancestral practice that will boost your health, fitness, beauty and well being for a lifetime, without having to rely on anything else but a simple daily 10-minute bath, using only water.

The Ancient Path of Cleansing: The History of Colonic Hydrotherapy

The history of Colon Hydrotherapy reaches far into the past. Reports about enemas were found on ancient Egyptian papers dating to 1500 B.C. The Chinese Medicine used Colon Hydrotherapy even earlier than that. Cleaning the colon also plays an important role in Ayurvedic medicine. Until the beginning of the 20th century Colon Hydrotherapy was a well-known therapy. Today's sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice. The historians tell us that the practice colon hydrotherapy, or in its more basic form, the enema, was passed down from the Gods to the Egyptians. There are numerous reports of the frequent use of the enema by the Egyptians, with all of them referencing a papyrus of the 14th century B.C., that is stored in the Royal Museum of Berlin. Colon Hydrotherapy (enema) is a gentle internal massage and bath using warm, purified water that can help to eliminate stored fecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic substances from the colon.

Hot and Cold Therapy

This program will take a little time and effort for the one doing the nursing. If you are desirous of seeing a sick friend, patient, or loved one healed, you will never regret the time spent, for this has saved many lives of people who were given up as hopeless, left to die, but were brought back, with this program, to good health.

COLD WET SOCK TREATMENT

This simple safe treatment is utilized during times of detoxification, infection and inflammation to boost the immune system by iincreasing circulation and white blood cells as well as speeding up healing time. It’s best to start the wet sock treatment on first day of an illness, ideally repeating it for three nights in a row.

  • Take a pair of cotton socks and soak them completely with ice cold water. Be sure to wring the socks out thoroughly so they do not drip.
  • Warm your feet first. This is very important as the treatment will not be as effective and could be harmful if your feet are not warmed first. Warming can be accomplished by soaking your feet in warm water for at least 5-10 minutes or taking a warm bath for 5-10 minutes.
  • Dry off feet and body with a dry towel.
  • Place ice cold wet socks on feet. Cover with thick wool socks. Go directly to bed. Avoid getting chilled.
  • Keep the socks on overnight. You will find that the wet cotton socks will be dry in the morning.

Dr. Wallace - “The wet sock treatment is only one component of an integrated treatment plan that includes hydration, proper nutrition and immunity-boosting supplements.” At Bastyr Center for Natural Health, practitioners can work with you to formulate a comprehensive immunity-boosting plan. Effects of the Wet Sock Treatment: This treatment acts to reflexively increase the circulation and decrease congestion in the upper respiratory passages, head, and throat. It has a sedating action and many patients report that they sleep much better during the treatment. This treatment is also effective for pain relief and increases the healing response during acute infections.

Cold Water Treatment

Many years ago a peasant was heading home on foot, with miles to go. He was racked with fever, colds, and lumbago. While crossing a stream, over a log for a bridge, he slipped and fell into the icy cold water and was drenched to the skin. It was a bitterly cold day and the man had to walk home in the cold in sloppy wet clothes. By the time he had arrived home, his clothes were nearly dried out. The fevers and heat in his body had been raised, while hurrying miles home, to a point of healing climax and was down to nearly normal at the end of his journey. The lumbago and fever were gone and he rejoiced! The next time he got lumbago and fevers he knew the cure--he would return to the stream, fall in and walk home again.

Cryotherapy Cold Water Therapy Device

Pricipals and practices of HydrotherapyHydrotherapy: Principles and Practice Essential reading for physiotherapy students at all levels Hydrotherapy: principles and practice will be invaluable as the basic hydrotherapy text.

Internationally known as a leader and innovator in hydrotherapy, Margaret Reid Campion has long been associated with the Halliwick approach to exercise techniques in water. This book combines her previous works on paediatric and adult hydrotherapy: the valuable rehabilitative and recreational ideas for children in water are linked with constructive and sensible guidelines for both traditional and original prescriptions for the rehabilitation of adults. In this contemporary and completely revised edition an impressive range of contributors have been gathered together to produce a definitive but practical text. Throughout the awareness of the value of the principles and practice of the Halliwick Method are linked to managing hydrotherapy treatments. The chapter The Halliwick Method and Conductive Education acts as a bridge between child and adult hydrotherapy.

1.Principles - the effects of activity in water, essential features of up-to-date pool design, basic physics, and assessment and recording. 2.Practice of paediatric hydrotherapy - an authoritative and comprehensive guide with valuable instructions and ideas for the rehabilitation and recreation of children in water. 3.Practice of adult hydrotherapy - a fundamental guide to aid a variety of conditions including neurosurgical and head injuries, spinal cord injuries, sports injuries, and rheumatic diseases; recent developments in spinal mobilization are introduced and the use of Watsu in rheumatic disorders is indicated. 4.Health promotion - outlining hydrotherapy in the child-bearing year, aqua-relaxation for mothers and babies, and water fitness for the older child.

Salt water hydrotherapy has been used for centuries to heal the sickSalt Water Hydrotherapy Studies have shown that you can achieve the best results taking a sole bath during the change of the moon cycle. The minerals and energies stored in the sole can optimally be absorbed during a full moon. The body’s healing potential is at its peak and bioenergetic weak points are harmonized and the body’s own energy flow activated. During a new moon, the cleansing effects are optimized because the body’s capacity for detoxifying is at its peak. The bath will have a detoxifying effect similar to a three-day fast.

A sole bath is a sheer ocean of energy. Bioenergetic deficits are rebalanced and weak links become strengthened, reactivating our body’s electric current. The organs’ functions start to resonate with the natural frequency patterns of the sole. This activates the natural regulatory mechanism of the body and its self-healing powers. A 30 minute sole bath has the cleansing effect of a three-day fast. In contrast to a normal bath, in which moisture is extracted from the skin, a sole bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin and the skin does not dry out. This is the reason why sole baths are good for dry skin as well.The cleansing effects of a 30-minute sole bath equal that of a three-day fast. The toxins are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and balances the pH factor of our skin.

Ancient Bathing Remedies for Modern Living

Ocean therapy encompasses the understanding that the element of water provides a restorative balancing of emotions through tuning-in to the cyclical rhythms of the ocean. From swimming with dolphins to incorporating ocean healing into traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Ocean Therapy is becoming more popular as a tool for healing deep emotional scars. Ocean Therapy also includes the bathing hydrotherapies that have applications to skin nutrition. Traditionally these therapies are referred to as Thalasso Therapy.

Children need to drink enough water

Water: How important is it for infants? For some readers the very idea of giving water to their nursing babies may be choking. Learn why some experts urge that breasted or bottle fed infants drink water in in our chemically polluted environment

"Many children don't drink enough water because they were raised on sugared beverages and juices." Donald K. Brown, M.D.

According to Pediatrics magazine, many children don't drink enough water because they were raised on sugared beverages and juices. Substituting juices and sodas for water may subject children to potential obesity because kids become accustomed to sweet flavor. Unfortunately, this is not surprising. New soft drinks, sports drinks and powdered mixes that are targeted to children are frequently introduced. These drinks are not a healthy source of hydration and can cause damage to proper development. A 50-pound, active child, for example, needs about a quart of water each day to stay hydrated. Even infants are at risk. Babies often cry when they are thirsty.

Weight Control Begins With Hydration
Trying to lose weight is always a challenge, but water can be a valuable and easily adaptable component of a diet plan. Water acts as an appetite suppressant and is instrumental in breaking down and reducing fat deposits. The rate at which we burn calories (our metabolism) is a chemical process requiring water
We need adequate water to ensure the smooth functioning of this process. Water helps to flush toxins out our system. The more toxins in our body the less capable it is of losing weight. If you are dieting, keep your system functioning properly and maximize weight loss by drinking plenty of water.

Tap water containing chlorine by-products

In a 1992 study that made front-page headlines, and was reported on in the July issue of the American Journal of Public Health researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee found that people who regularly drink tap water containing high levels of chlorine by-products have a greater risk of developing bladder and rectal cancers than people who drink unchlorinated water. The study estimates that about 9 percent of all bladder cancer and 18 percent of all rectal cancer cases are associated with long-term consumption of these by-products. This amounts to over 20,000 new cases each year. These concerns about cancer risks associated with chemical contamination from chlorination by-products have resulted in numerous epidemiological studies. These studies generally support the notion that by-products of chlorination are associated with increased cancer risks." "Chlorine is used to combat microbial contamination, but it can react with organic matter in the water and form dangerous, carcinogenic trihalomethanes.

Chlorinated water and Eczema - A testimonial on Fri, 3 Dec 1999, from Angela Jones
"I have had Psoriasis and eczema for 15 years and I have tried everything the doctors have prescribed (prednisone, Methotrexate, etc.) but of course the psoriasis always came back after "treatment". Then about a year ago I read the book "Eat right for Your Type" and I am a changed person. My skin is clearer than it has ever been. I went to a naturopath and found out I was allergic to tons of stuff including chlorine, so I have placed a filter on my shower and on my kitchen sink and this has helped considerably. I recommend you put a filter on you bath tub too. Please read up on Eat right 4 your type, it has really changed my life !! Note: Methotrexate causes liver failure, so please be careful anyone whom is on it. A liver biopsy is not my idea of a good time." Angela

Our environment is a toxic minefield

There have been a half-million new chemicals developed since 1965 alone. Most of these organic pollutants are modern hydrocarbon chemicals such as plastic and pesticides. Some are no biodegradable. Most are soluble in water, and thousands are known to be toxic. In 1991, the U.S. Congressional Research Service revealed that 10% of the 1.4 million underground gasoline storage thanks in the U.S. are currently leaking. There are also an estimated 16,000 municipal landfills and 181,000 industrial waste sites in the United States that leech contaminants into our water supplies. Agricultural pesticides and highway de-icing chemicals are other contaminants.

Perchlorate in water sources

Perchlorate, the explosive component of rocket and missile fuel, contaminates more than 500 drinking water sources in 20 states, serving well over 20 million people. Among contaminated sources is the Colorado River, which provides drinking water for Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas and other cities. Perchlorate can affect the thyroid gland’s ability to make essential hormones. For fetuses, infants and children, disruptions in thyroid hormone levels can cause lowered IQ, mental retardation, loss of hearing and speech, and motor skill deficits.

Pet synthetic bottles

The most common plastic used in water bottle manufacturing is PET (polyethylene terephthalate), an environmentally unfriendly substance that actually requires 17.5 kilograms of water to produce only 1 kilogram of PET. In fact, more water is used to make PET bottles than is actually put into them. The production of the plastic also produces numerous byproducts that are extremely harmful to the environment. The Container Recycling Institute reported that 14 billion water bottles were sold in the U.S. in 2002, yet only 10 percent of these bottles were recycled - 90 percent ended up in the trash. That's an extra 12.6 billion plastic bottles for the landfills; bottles that contained water that was no more - and often less - healthy than tap water. learn more

Chlorinated tap water linked to birth defects

Scientists from Imperial College, London University, will carry out the research after doctors in Norway, Canada and the United States reported higher levels of birth defects in areas where chlorine is used, compared with drinking water treated by alternative methods. A Norwegian study of 141,000 births over three years found a 14 per cent increased risk of birth defects in areas with chlorinated water. Scientists have already found an association between chlorine and an increased risk of bowel, kidney and bladder cancer, but it is the first time that a link has been found with higher levels of spina bifida.

Chlorine poisoning

Matthew Silver, MD - "An associate in her early fifties who had suffered for many years from the toxic effects of chlorine poisoning from inhaling vapors from an over-chlorinated swimming pool. This had resulted in many severe health challenges including extreme chronic fatigue and breathing difficulty that kept her housebound and dependent on oxyn. Even minimal exertion led to extreme shortness of breath. After just three days of drinkingglyconutrients, she reported that all of her symptoms improved dramatically and that she was able to leave her house without oxygen and work in her garden, which she had not been able to do in years." The sugars found on all Glyconutrients (saccharides) also address the workings of the brain and nervous system – from memory and sleep to anxiety and depression.

Cancer fighting nutrients become deadly when combined with chlorinated tap water

Some of nature’s most valuable and essential anti-cancer and anti-disease phytochemical nutrients which are commonly found in food have been discovered to form deadly cancer causing substances when consumed or combined with chlorinated tap water. This discovery includes familiar foods including soy, fruits, vegetables, tea, many health products, and even some vitamins. Research has proven that these essential nutrients are the exact same families of compounds, that even in infinitesimal amounts have been tormenting the water treatment and chlorine industries for years.

It has been known by the water treatment and chemical industries for many years that chlorine reacts negatively with natural organic compounds. These industries call these compounds DBPs (disinfection by-products) which are known to cause cancer in populations whose drinking water contains them. THM, the most commonly known DBP, is known to cause a high incidence of bladder cancer and also to cause spontaneous abortion of fetuses.

The Environmental Protection Agency has continually tightened their restrictions on THMs in drinking water, and even tighter restrictions are just around the bend. Yet it is interesting to note that the many government agencies and chlorine industries have conveniently neglected to take a serious look at food, health supplement, and pharmaceutical drug consumption, preparation, and production relating to use of chlorinated tap water.

There is good reason for the public to seriously examine and question this entire issue. Many years ago laws were passed making chlorination of water mandatory. Now, the chlorine industry and government agencies must continue their existing policies, because if sudden or drastic changes are made, the legal liabilities would be staggering. Certainly some government or industry personnel have known or theorized about these problems and have been covering them up for many years. However, if anyone were to admit to it, the consequences could be disastrous. This predicament could make the tobacco industry scandal seem insignificant in comparison.

CHLORINATED WATER FOR ANIMALS .... A BIG NO-NO !!

Chlorine is a halogen that damages enzymes. It does not belong in our bodies as part of our water needs !! For starters, chlorine potentiates magnesium deficiency, which can cause almost any symptom you can think of from high blood pressure, to chemical sensitivity or even sudden death. Furthermore it also decreases the absorption while increasing the excretion of calcium and phosphorus. The increased loss of calcium into the urine, promotes osteoporosis. It is known that it not only contributes to hypertension, but also cancers of the pancreas, colon, bladder and has been linked to heart attacks, diabetes, kidney stones and much more."

Ionized Water

Safe, toxin-free, Ionized, Energized, Drinking Water helps to naturally flush toxins and acidic waste from the body and is a powerful antioxidant. Ionized Water makes more oxygen available to our cells than distilled, reverse osmosis, filtered only, bottled or tap water and is the best possible drinking water. "Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water. Avoid it except in special circumstances." Zoltan P. Rona M.D
