Section 1 Dehydration Signs You Will Find Everywhere
Section 2 The Rest of the Story: What Dehydration Does
What you need to know about dehydration, the most important aspects are covered here. A sign is objective evidence of disease. It is something that can be seen, felt, measured and recognized by a doctor, nurse, family and you.
The five signs dehydration typically presents are intuitive. It makes sense that these would be the signs. The second section, the additional signs, those are the ones that do not make sense unless you understand human physiology and how the water cure works. It is here that we will have the greatest controversy and complaint.
We are not selling anything. Our goal is to share this and help as many people as we can.
Dehydration Signs: The Basics
Urine: Color will be dark (amber colored) and the amount will be reduced. As the kidneys concentrate the urine with progressively less water, urine becomes darker, eventually becoming amber colored.
Skin Turgor: decreased skin elasticity, prolonged tenting when pulled up on the back of the hand.
Skin Color and Temperature: pale, warm dry skin.
Thirst: may or may not be present, dry mouth..
Heart Rate: Increased heart rate.
Difficulty in Diagnosing
Clinically, the condition of dehydration is difficult to determine, even by experienced clinicians. The physical signs of dehydration, being subjective, are many times confusing.
Pardon our Geek: A More Clinical Viewpoint
Clinically, dehydration is considered if the lab work shows serum osmolarity is greater than 295 milliosmols (mosmol).
You are considered to have intravascular volume depletion if the ratio of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) to serum creatinine was greater than 20 or the serum sodium was greater than 145 milligrams per deciliter.
Hypovolemia (decrease in blood plasma or the liquid part of our blood volume) is considered if the serum osmolarity is greater than 295 and the BUN/creatinine ratio is greater than 20. Hypovolemia or decreased blood volume is usually the result of salt depletion and is not necessarily the same as dehydration which is the excessive loss of water.
Dehydration may or may not cause hypovolemia.
Section 2: Dis-ease Caused By Unintentional Dehydration
In our research, we have come up with 72 different diseases or conditions that can be improved or as some will claim, eliminated with the water cures protocol. The statements by those contributing here have not been approved by the FDA.
Those diseases come in various categories. Here are a few that we have seen the water cures work for.
- Auto immune disease
- Blood Diseases
- Lack of Energy
- ADD and ADHD
- High Blood Pressure
- Chest Pain Not Improved With Nitroglycerin
- Leg Cramps
More to come on this topic in due time. Please come back as the water cure knowledge keeps growing.
