What is Dark Screen Microscopy

Did you know your live blood can tell volumes about your health and guide you to ways you can improve it?

Headaches. Dry skin. Dry mouth. Fatigue. Hunger. Low blood pressure. High blood pressure! Low cardiac output. Rapid heart rate. Dizziness upon standing. These are typical everyday symptoms of dehydration.

Your live blood, looked at under a high power microscope, can tell you about these and many more things.

Most people drink when they get thirsty. Unfortunately, by the time your body registers thirst it is more than just a little dehydrated. Add to that the fact that most people do not reach for a glass of water when they are thirsty. "Sport drinks," juice, soda, flavored waters, "intelligent" waters, "enhanced" waters, beer…these are the fluids most often sought ought to quench thirst. But these fluids will not help dehydration much, if at all.

Did you know that if you drank sufficient water and ate an organic diet that was 50% vegetables, 25% sprouted grains, and 25% protein and fats, skipped sugar (our body can make its own sugar for the brain), and took a good multivitamin with minerals and daily probiotics, you would virtually eradicate diseases? The human body is very adept at maintaining optimal health if only we give it the tools it needs.

Take the sport drinks, for example. Most of those are either full of sugars or artificial sweeteners, artificial food colorings, preservatives, sometimes caffeine or other stimulants---Which Cause Dehydration --- and an imbalanced collection of minerals that actually stress the body.

Everyone loves juice and many people feel it is healthy. But did you know that orange juice you buy in the store is pasteurized, killing all the nutrition, making it only an orange flavored drink?

In order to make an 8 oz glass of OJ, you need about 5 oranges. Would you eat five oranges? And even with the variety that has pulp, you'd get more of the beneficial pulp by eating one orange. Fruit is natures candy and that fruit sugar, fructose, metabolizes into free radicals and affects the body much like alcohol, stressing the liver.

Soda is full of sugar or artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, often caffeine, and carbon dioxide. We inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This is what gives carbonated beverages their carbonation, or fizziness. Carbon dioxide is a waste product.

Worst of all, the above are usually consumed from plastic containers. Plastics contain phthalates, or plasticizers. Plastic also contains xenoestrogens, which disrupt hormones---especially estrogen. Too much estrogen stimulates soft tissue cancer growth. You may think, if it's so harmful, then it would be causing problems and people would stop using it. The problem is that these take many years or even decades to build up enough to cause health issues. The result, we wake up one day and are sick but have no idea why. The reason was years of abusing our bodies and not even knowing it.

These likewise will show up in your live blood when looked at under the microscope.

Salt and Health

Most folks remember from science class that water follows salt. This is a tremendously simple and succinct way of saying this, but if you do not have enough salt in your body the water won't have anything to follow or hold it in its proper place. The result is edema, or swelling, as well as high blood pressure as the water does not get into the tissue where it needs to be and ends up circulating around in excess.

For many years we have been told that salt causes high blood pressure and swelling. This is true when talking about table salt, that bleached white mineral deficient junk that is truly only good for scrubbing sinks and counters. Good salts (Celtic salt, which is grey; Sea salt, which looks like sand and has flecks of color in it; and Himalayan salt, which is pink) help your body get the minerals you need to be healthy, as food today is very deficient in minerals. There's a reason hospitals use so many 'normal saline' IV's!

How do you know you're dehydrated? The human body is approximately 80% water. The cardiovascular and immune systems especially need consistently adequate amounts of water to perform well and maintain your health. Did you know that water is the best blood thinner?

Minerals and Sugars

How do you know if your are mineral imbalanced or mineral deficient? Or have too many minerals in your circulation? How do you know if you have an abundance of free radical toxicity? Or are having "sugar issues?"

Sure, glucose tests give you a part of that picture. But glucose is one simple sugar, and the human body is full of many simple and complex sugars. A standard glucose test cannot tell you about those. How do you know if you have chemical toxicity from the plastics you use every day and the artificial food coloring's you have been ingesting?

Even worse, if you are not absorbing minerals or the foods you eat, your blood can identify what is going on inside your gut.


Well, you could wait until symptoms develop and/or dis-ease ensues. Or...you could have a BioNutrional Audit done, and actually see your blood live as it is projected onto a TV screen from a microscope. BioNutritional Auditing looks at blood in its whole, live state.

Looking At Your Live Blood

Live blood microscopy looks at blood that hasn't been killed, centrifuged, or stained. Viewing the blood this way can give you a heads up on many potential health issues, identify issues already present and ultimately showing you how to optimize your health.

During your audit, you will get an explanation of what you are seeing on the screen and will be provided integrative options for correcting any health discrepancies that might be found. Sound interesting? Contact me for more information and who is doing this!

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.

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.
