This pain is usually in the lower left abdomen. There is a lot going on inside our bodies in this area. Part of our large intestine take up a considerable amount of this space. The descending colon, sigmoid colon most notably are in the left side of our body.

The commonality according to numerous medical publications and doctor reports, is dehydration. When treated, many have eliminated their symptoms as well as the cause.

For those who would like to help us out, we ask you wait till we are successful before you send us any gifts or help in any way.

Pain in Left Side Commonalities

The list above of possible causes of lower left abdominal pain is long. When considering all the list, it is beneficial to look at the things in common with each. The commonalities provide clues as to what the underlying cause is and treatments that could work.

Mild Infection

Mild infections are usually treated with antibiotics. In the holistic field, there are numerous treatments that help the whole body treat the infection. The water cures protocol can be used in addition to diet changes, rest and antibiotics. Hydrating the body is the first defense to protect and best offense to fight for our health. The Water Cures Protocol promotes the cellular hydration and alkalinity at the cellular level. This helps fight infections.

Urinary Tract Infections

Symptoms include painful urination, continuous urge to urinate but only passing small amounts. Urine will appear cloudy, may be pink, red or dark amber (think cola colored). The urine will be odoriferous. Women usually experience pelvic pain. Men often experience rectal pain.

Commonalities: inflammation of the urinary tract and discomfort which may be pain in the left side. Drinking more water will help prevent and treat the symptoms. With the Water Cures UTI protocol, many have found it goes away in 12 hours.

Kidney Stones

Symptoms include painful urination, continuous urge to urinate but only passing small amounts. Urine will appear cloudy, may be pink, red or dark amber (think cola colored). The urine will be odoriferous. Women usually experience pelvic pain. Men often experience rectal pain. Possible fever, chills and infection. But the most often reported sign, pain in the left side.

The additional symptom from UTI, severe pain in side, aback and below the ribs. Abdominal and groin pain. The pain may come in waves. It may fluctuate in intensity.

The commonality: pain and especially pain in left side is do to inflammation caused by the stone. Depending on size and kind of stone, there are natural and medical ways to remove it. Often drinking more water will help. Water Cures can not only help prevent, it is possible it can correct the problem and relieve the symptoms.

Ulcerative Colitis

If you have been diagnosed with UC, then you know why you have the abdominal tenderness and pain. Some also have fever, bloody diarrhea, weight loss, cramps and fatigue. Its no secret that inflammation plays a part. The Water Cures can end the inflammation.

Intestinal Obstruction

The cause of the obstruction could be due to mechanical problems (something is blocking the gut), or because the gut is not working correctly. When this happens, liquids do not go through the gut properly. What may appear to be diarrhea is in reality the result of constipation.

The commonality, constipation, abdominal pain and tenderness, vomiting.

Colon Cancer

Those with colon cancer have a higher chance of pain in the left side.

Most of these include vomiting, nausea, fatigue, weight loss and painful urination, abdominal tenderness and pain, especially left side pain.

If you are here, you have no doubt already got a medical diagnoses. If the treatment you are receiving is not working or not working as fast as you would like, there are ways you can improve the outcomes.

All of these symptoms have an unseen commonality. That is they are related to fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. When we provide proper hydration and electrolytes, everything works the best they can. So, if we are trying to treat any condition and do not provide the most basic and fundamental needs, the healing will be slowed.

A properly hydrated body with adequate electrolytes will function optimally. When our bodies function optimally, they heal themselves.

If medicine has failed you or you don't want to use modern medicine to get well (many times destroying other parts of your body), what can be done?

The Water Cures Option

There are both medical, natural and holistic treatments for:


Intestinal obstruction

Ovulation pain

Ovarian cysts

Kidney stones

Urinary tract infection

Irritable bowel syndrome

Almost all of the experts agree that symptoms can be improved and these can be managed by improving diet. Especially, the importance of drinking water daily is stressed.

We only add to the experts recommendations that we also need electrolytes to get the water into our cells, all of our cells.

Water is essential for prevention and treatment of digestive heath problems. Liquids help in numerous ways.

It is not a good idea to self diagnoses these symptoms. Only a trained doctor can adequately provide the correct diagnoses. Because there are numerous infections that can cause the pain in left side, it could be impossible to accurately self diagnose.

If you have any of these problems, ask your doctor about including the water cures protocol into your regimen.

The causes of pain in left side is often associated with a wide variety of abdominal infections. It may be nearly impossible to tell what you are suffering from without professional help.

When you know what you are dealing with, hydrating your body may be the start to getting your health and your life back.

Water Cures in the News


Our Grandparents Knew About Hydration and Eating!
It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.

Have you tried the Water Cures Yet? Then why not...
