This water cures weight loss story is by a man who started out with kidney stone pain and ended up improving his health. A special trick that may help this work for you is at the bottom.
Thomas first heard of the Water Cures on the Art Bell show. In August, he started having back pain that was progressively getting worse.
The first trip to the doctor and getting tested for muscle and bone related health, nothing could be found.
Then a test showed blood in the urine. On getting an IVP X-ray and then a second followed by a cat-scan, finally a kidney stone was discovered.
Thomas was told by his urologist that he had developed the stone because he was dehydrated. The kidney stones were removed surgically two months later in October. To prevent the recurrence of the kidney stones, he was encouraged to drink more water by this doctor.
On finding that he had kidney stones, he began to read everything he could on the topic. This is when he found the book, Your Bodies Many Cries for Water. The book helped with creating a mindset of drinking at least 1 liter of water every day (33 ounces). He stopped drinking soft drinks all together.
He found that by starting early and making sure to have water with him through the day, it was possible to drink 4 liters a day (135 ounces).
The most notable benefit, his weight went from 197lbs. to 165lbs. This happened in just three months. He made no other dietary changes.
As to the kidney stones, as of a year later, there were no more.
The lesson he learned, "...made me think a lot about what I put into my body." And Thomas added, "I will be a water drinker the rest of my life."
The water cures protocol is based on a simple philosophy. We need water for optimal health. We need electrolytes to get the water into the cells of our body in order for the water to do its work.
When we take both and drink prior to eating, our stomach is best prepared for the food to enter it. We increase the nourishment potential from the food we eat and our bodies can produce optimal healing.
Hydration coaches recommend drinking within 20 minutes of awaking. This is because our bodies determine if we are going to be starving or eating on awaking. We have about 20 minutes to inform our body. Failure to do so could cause our body switching to conserve excess food as fat rather than eliminating it. Drinking an amount of water that is about your body weight X 0.08 is all you need (not to exceed 32 ounces in 2 hours). Just before you drink the water, put a pinch of unprocessed salt on your tongue to get the electrolytes inside your body to help transport the water to your cells.
