Improve Your Spirit with
Water & Salt

If you are down, you can improve your spirit with a pinch of salt and a glass of water. It is called the Water Cures protocol. University of Connecticut research found that mild dehydration can alter our mood. By simply hydrating our bodies we can rapidly fix the problem.

The studies left out one important ingredient for optimal hydration....unprocessed salt dissolved on the tongue.

Below the info-graphic you will find the details of how and why this works so good.

Your Spirit: The Explanation

While there is much debate on what the spirit is, from a scientific standpoints, the spirit is the life force within us. It is the force that both causes or actuates and at the same time, allows all of our cells to work together in a symphonic harmony we call life.

While you may have heard of a spirited horse, a man with a broken spirit or even the Bible verse that says spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Yet there is much more to explain in our choice of how we define spirit.

When the human body dies, the heart still has life in it for about 4 hours. Within those four hours, the heart can be transplanted and will continue to live in another body.

The same is true of the liver, only it maintains life for about 7 hours. The cornea of our eyes can live on for 1 week (unless exported to other countries where they consider 2 weeks as acceptable). So, the life force, in us as a living being, constitutes our spirit. That life force, no longer a spirit, continues on within our various cells for a period of time.

The treatment by holistic doctors and nurses involves caring for the combined spirit, mind and body and heart.

If our mind is the rider, and the body (with out a moral compass) is just an animal, then our spirit is our GPS. It guides and positions our self, the way we manage our thoughts, emotions and energy through the day.

Our spirit is only as good as it is maintained. By hydrating our body, we are able to improve the overall status of our life force. It is the equivalent of upgrading our software. But it is required that we do this daily.

So, did you upgrade today?

The DIY Spirit Fix Download Directions:

Simply download (drink) a glass of water.

How much? Drink your body weight x 10 percent in ounces of water each time you drink. Initially, it is essential to do this 2 times a day. Best practice is to work up to 5 times a day and in some cases, even more.

Download a pinch of unprocessed salt (dissolve in your mouth), about 1/8 tsp of salt for every 16 ounces of water you drink.

Your body will upload the water and salt to your brain. From there, it will improve your spirit and numerous other functions.

Using this upgrade, people have found they can loose weight, improve mental agility, improve thinking and in one of our testimonials, it was reported that it helped reduced anger.

The Science of the Spirit

Numerous phsycological journals have reported on how the spirit works. Consider just one physical action that can effect the entire body. By effect, this would, according to the current research, can 1) make us appear more attractive, 2) lift our mood, not to mention the mood of those around us and it can even help us to live longer. This mind, body and life altering action is the smile.

Every smile creates a get-to-gather in your brain, where all the feel good friends associate. This because the nerve messaging results in the release of neuropeptides (the things that allow the brain to communicate to itself and the whole body) that help us fight off stress.

But we spoke of the feel good friends or neurotransmitters. These are dopamine, endorphins and serotonin. They are dependent on hydration to optimize their production. Think of the Water Cures as a bio-hack to empower smiling or in reality, making smiling a super power. This process can relax your whole body. Even more importantly, this simple act of smiling can cause a cascade of benefits that can lower your heart rate and blood pressure.

The endorphins also act as a natural pain reliever — 100-percent organic and without the potential negative side effects of synthetic concoctions (4). Additionally, serotonin released by a smile can work as an anti-depressant/mood lifter. Thus the reason that anti-depressants drugs are created to influence the serotonin levels in the brain. The difference, no negative side effects — and no prescription from your doctor is required.

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.

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.
