Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS

What Do We Think,
.....What Do We Know,
.......... What Can We Prove

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS is caused by a number of factors, including dehydration. We think that modern medicine, handicapped by the desire for profits, has missed one of the primary causes of chronic fatigue syndrome.

Do you want to know an alternative treatment for CFS that works?

One of the first things you should have your doctor look at is your D25 level. Low vitamin D levels can cause symptoms like CFS. Doctors will rarely look for this.

In this section on CFS, you will see the proof of how the water cure and other chronic fatigue syndrome treatments can end the suffering.

First a question...

Why do those using the Water Cures protocol believe that using the water and salt has cured their chronic fatigue syndrome? Besides the fact it has worked for them, they believe because they know what chronic fatigue really is. It's a sign and symptom of chronic unintentional fluid and electrolyte imbalance, or not enough water and electrolytes in the diet.

They know that unlike snake oil, this is free. We are not selling a cure. There is no profit motive in sharing this quality of life saving knowledge.

If you have CFS, you already know what it is. If you do not have it, CFS has in the past been treated as though it was all in the head, a mental illness. Medical doctors in particular were guilty of this but it made its rounds throughout healthcare. But not all healthcare providers feel this way. Some have championed helping those who suffer with the energy crisis CFS produces in the body.

Emerging science (June 2016) suggests it is in your gut, not in your head. We suggested this in March of 2016 as dark screen microscopy has found a microbodial load in those with CFS.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS:

CFS is also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS), chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), and several other terms. It is any of several conditions where the dominant symptom is fatigue not due to exertion or exercise. The fatigue is not relieved by rest. Other medical conditions are not the cause of the fatigue.

Etiology Unknown:

This is a fancy word to say the cause is not known or not understood. It is what most medical reports will say as to the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome. Some will assert that there are many causes. At, we have found that the underlying cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is, as Dr. B would say, chronic and unintentional dehydration along with inadequate electrolyte consumption.

We also suspect a bacterial blood infections that do not cause a typical infection reaction may also be a cause for some diagnoses of CFS. Research has found a link with a number of infectious that trigger chronic fatigue syndrome including Epstein-Barr virus, parvovirus-B, enteroviruses, Giardia, Ross River virus and others. As of 2016, some researchers feel that burgdorferi – the Lyme disease pathogen, should be on that list. It is a spirochete bacteria which releases a neurotoxin.

In the case of the bacterial infection, while the Water Cures Protocol will not be curative, it will help both boost the immune system and will help relieve symptoms. More aggressive treatment will be necessary, such as antibiotics if caught soon enough.

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.

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.

Water Cures is not for Everyone

Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

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.
