This is the menopause and fibromyalgia story of Karen DeStefano. It is how she learned about the menopause natural treatment and post menopause treatment found in the Water Cures protocol. She found what so many know, water and salt are two of the most effective menopause natural remedies available.
I was searching the internet for information on Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus when I came across Water Cures. My father had been suffering with various symptoms and was diagnosed with both of the above diseases, cycling between them at different times of the year. Having my own health issues, I was intrigued with what I was reading and decided that the Water Cures was not only the best answer for my father but for myself as well.
I was suffering from intense menopausal symptoms: hot flashes every five minutes, sleeplessness, anxiety, crying, depression, fatigue. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and menopause.
My body ached and was so swollen and stiff. At one point, I was passing out if I exerted myself at all. I could not get out of bed for three months as the chronic fatigued, loss of consciousness and pain associated with fibromyalgia was debilitating. I would have one or two good days out of a month that I could function on my feet, but then it was back to bed as my energy would again become depleted.
At one point I had resigned myself to the fact that this would be how my life would end and that the best I could do was to try to be happy with what life dealt me and try to deal. I tried every day. I began going to a wellness center and was given a mass supplement and put on hormone replacement therapy, which I began taking on a regular basis.
This did help and I was happy to be going in the right direction. What I didn't realize then, though, was that it wasn't the supplements, but the water that I was drinking to take them that was bringing me back to health.
It was about a year and a half into my illness before I found the Water Cures online. It made perfect sense to me and I began to drink...and drink...and drink...and drink.
Being afraid of the salt portion of the cures, I sort of avoided it at first, but then realized that I would only be doing myself more harm than good if I didn't follow the recipe. I began adding salt, unprocessed sea salt.
After less than a week, I decided not to take my hormones one morning and realized that my hot flashes were gone...completely gone.
I started sleeping through the night. My Fibromyalgia was gone, my chronic fatigue was gone, my menopause symptoms were gone, my anxiety and bouts of crying had disappeared too.
Every day I just get better and better. It is now about three weeks into the Water Cures story and I could not be happier.
Sadly, I cannot get my father to understand that his sever symptoms are the result of chronic and now critical dehydration. He is drinking some water to appease me, but still drinks his tea. He is 79 and just refuses to accept that free water, as opposed to expensive and debilitating medications, could be the answer.
I am still committed to getting him to understand but, for some people, you just have to let them make their own decisions. I have resigned myself to accepting that my father, being on the path that he is, will not be with me much longer unless he changes his mind set and embraces water...the answer to recover and life.
I praise Dr. Batman every day for bringing this simplistic miracle into my life, and for Bob Butts, who so unselfishly works to bring this miracle to others through his time, dedication and knowledge.

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)

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.

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.
