Agoraphobia Gone, Here Is the Simple Cure

By Bob Butts

I was asked to be the guest speaker at a depression group meeting. It was at a counseling center in Wilkes-Barre PA and the audience was made up of a group of counselors and people who were dealing with depression. They met at these classes 5 days a week. Some were so bad they were not able to work a normal 9-5 job.

She Had Agoraphobia

One of those attending caught my eye as they sat off in a corner, not sitting with the others. She was not able to be near people because she had agoraphobia.

My confidence in being able to help these people was high as Dr. Batmanghelidj had taught us that depression is a symptom of chronic and unintentional dehydration.

These people had to be dehydrated, there was no question about it.

They also had to be doing something that was compounding the dehydration. This would not only promote depression, it would also be weakening their immune system.

They had to be drinking too much caffeine, alcohol or soda which is often full of high fructose corn syrup or neurotoxic artificial sweeteners.

They Needed More Salt and More Water

I was confident that they were not consuming enough water and salt. I need to qualify this, they were not getting enough of the right kind of salt. Where table salt is bad for health, unprocessed sea salt with all the trace minerals is essential for our health and our continued living.

One of the first things that happens when people go into the hospital is they get a saline IV. Ironic since doctors say salt is bad for you and yet they give a bag of saline with 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt in it.

Ask people with the worst health and they usually admit that they drink a lot of processed drinks and very little water. They will say that they do not like the taste of water.

Once they make the change and give their bodies what they need, the proper amount of water and unprocessed sea salt, they make a dramatic change. Often their health issues just go away in a few days to within a few months.

In my lecture, I told them about how Dr. Batmanghelidj learned in prison that both stomach ulcers and depression were eliminated when the inmates drank enough water and ate enough sea salt.

With this in mind, I just knew it would help end depression for this group. The agoraphobia was another story. I did not know if it would work for her.

Good News: Agoraphobia Gone

A few days passed and I got the news.

When she returned to her class, she actually danced her way in. The agoraphobia was gone. She was feeling so good, her mom had taken her to the King of Prussia Mall. For those who do not know, it is perhaps one of the largest malls in Pennsylvania (actually 2nd largest in the country), let alone one of the busiest.

Within three weeks, everyone in the group was free of depression and no longer needed the class.

I was never asked to speak to the group again. On asking the nurse who first invited me, 'why?' she said that if everyone gets well, the organizers would be out of jobs.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing 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.

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.
