The number one water cure therapy is the water cure protocol. It may seem complicated but is simple. Your daily amount of water, your total water consumption should be your weight in pounds divided in half. That number is how many ounces of water you should drink in a day, ideally.
Divide that number by 5 or 6 and you have your individual dose of water.
With each 16 ounces of water you drink, dissolve in your mouth 1/8th teaspoon of salt.
Never drink more than 32 ounces of water in a 3 hour period and never drink the water with out dissolving the salt in your mouth. Failure to do this could result in fluid overload and washing out essential nutrients.
