How to Manage Your Depression Simply and Naturally

Below is the how to information for how to treat depression naturally. First, here are some links for specifics types of depression related issues and where the water cure could be of help.

Warning Signs of Depression Chronic Dehydration

Water cures can work as a natural depression treatment because the most unrecognized symptom of depression is what medicine would call unintentional dehydration.

Note: Drinking more water alone will not help. In addition to drinking water, it is necessary to have the right kind of electrolytes. Using unprocessed sea salt, which has natural buffers in the form of essential minerals provides the needed electrolytes. Please read the entire directions below.

Natural Depression Cures: How To Do It!

    The of the natural treatments for depression is using water cures. It simply involves drinking your water and eat some unprocessed salt.

    Is it for You?: If you have kidney disease, are on medications, are currently under a doctors care, have an intolerance to salt in some way and or if the salt burns your mouth, this is not for you.

    The Amount of Water: Drink half your bodies weight in ounces of water, divided by 5 or 6. This will give you the individual dose of water or how much you need to drink each time you drink. Never drink more than 32 ounces in any three hour period.

    Another way to figure this out....every time you drink water, measure out 10 percent of your body weight in ounces of water. So a 100 lb person would drink 10 ounces. A 160 lb person will drink 16 ounces and so on. If you do this five to 5 times a day, it will be the same number as half your body weight in ounces as Dr. B recommends.

    The Amount of Salt: 1/8th teaspoon of unprocessed sea salt for every 16 ounces of water.

    The Way to Drink It: No nursing the water. Drink it down within a few minutes.

    When to Drink the Water and Take the Salt

    Never drink water with your meal. It dilutes your bodies ability to do what it does.

    Take the salt and fully dissolve it in your mouth before drinking the water.

    Good: Take the salt and at the least, within 20 minutes of awaking in the morning (and do not eat for at least breakfast 30-45 min) and within 30 min of going to bed.

    Better: Dissolve the salt in your mouth before each drink on arising, 30 - 45 minutes before lunch and 30 min before supper.

    Best: Take the salt before each drink on arising as above, 30 to 45 minutes before each meal and 2 hours after each meal.

    Option For Those Who Have Difficulty Sleeping: At night only, drink the water first and then take the salt.

    This is perhaps the safest of the natural treatments for depression.

Other Depression Natural Treatments

There are other natural depression treatments. They can work with and may even be enhanced by the water cures. If you want to start treating depression naturally, it is best to do it with a water coach or a friend who will help you keep on track.

The water cures is only effective if done properly. In order to start treating depression naturally, there is also a motivational component that has to be included. A friend, support system or others using the same modality of treatments can often help.

When the Water Cures Is Not Enough Sometimes there is more going on than just dehydration. If you are sleeping 4 hours or less, have anxiety, depression and nothing helps, then you need to look beyond fluid and electrolyte imbalance.

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)

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.
