Water cures is a natural high blood pressure remedy. Don't take our word for it. Here's what others have to say.
Stephen Knight, 58 from Lake Aries, PA heard about the Water Cures from his girlfriend.
He was dealing with dangerously high blood pressure. The thought of consuming salt for high blood pressure seemed crazy to him. After speaking to the founder of the WaterCures.org website, he decided to try it for a couple of days to, as he put it, "shut my girlfriend up."
For the first time in years, Stephen slept without interruption. The very next day, his blood pressure was down to 146/85. Although still high, it was considerably lower than what he had been. It was unbelievable.
Stephen was not big on doctors. His complaint was that doctors only prescribe medications he could not afford.
After being on the water cures protocol for 2 weeks and realized the results he was experiencing, he was hooked. His blood pressure was now normal. He has more energy than ever. He reports he is more alert, has a better appetite and sleeps much better. Although skeptical about things like natural cures, he concluded, "I cant dispute these results and I am very excited about them."
When our bodies are dehydrated, there is a constant balancing that happens. Our body shifts water from places of less need to places of greatest need. Since our blood is one of the places that the greatest amount of water is present (in the lymph and plasma), it is one of the places that the water is taken from. When the shift takes place, the body compensates. This results in the higher blood pressure.
Drinking water is not enough. When we drink water with out consuming salt, the water acts like a diuretic. It pulls water out of our body and causes increased dehydration. When we put dissolve salt on our tongue, the water we drink gets into all of our cells of our body. The water, fully hydrating our body, thus brings down the blood pressure.
In our experience, rarely the salt increases the blood pressure of some people. If you have heart disease, kidney disease, salt intolerance, are pregnant or nursing, do not use the water cures protocol without first seeking the advice from a qualified health care professional. While salt and water are a natural high blood pressure remedy for many, it needs to be used cautiously until it is seen how it works.
