What if the mental health definition was wrong? What would that mean for those many suffering? What would that mean for the stigma?
Two Definitions, One Is Wrong
The first definition is beautiful and but not totally accurate.
The World Health Organization mental heath definition includes reaching our fullest potential. It involves coping with normal stressors of daily living. Mental health would allow us to play and work productively and to be able to add meaningful contributions to our community. This assumes we have a measure of emotional intelligence and have a moral compass.
The other definition of mental health is a negative one.
It basically defines mental health is the absence of mental illness. At the water cures, we disagree. We believe mental health is something more.
Mental health is the quality of the human brain, being properly nourished, properly hydrated and given the appropriate electrolytes being able to empower a person to live to their fullest potential.
Note: Fullest potential is not dependent on the brain as much as the mind. If we have never been taught ethics or how to work effectively or efficiently we cannot expect that of someone.
So what happens if the brain is not properly hydrated, fed and given the proper electrolytes?
What is called mental health becomes mental illness.
What if mental illness is in reality, a physiological reaction to dehydration, depletion of electrolytes and or a lack of the proper nutrients?
We know that with certain mental illnesses or mental diseases, there is a shortage of certain chemicals or sometimes there are certain physiological changes.
This theory would be easy to check out. All we would have to do is give an amount of water that would be appropriate for the body weight and a corresponding amount of unprocessed salt. The reason for requiring unprocessed salt is that combined with the sodium and chloride are up to 80 trace minerals. These are essential for brain health. The salt helps the minerals get transported throughout the body and to the brain.
The experiences of those who have tried the water cures protocol indicate that the theory is sound. Unlike pharmaceutical companies, there is no funding for a treatment that is free.
Since salt and water alone will not care for all of our needs, there may be a need for some out side of the glass help. Dietary changes or supplements may be needed for some.
Where the health care system believes that mental illness symptoms are manageable with medications and counseling (psychotherapy), there is a huge profit to be made.
If you know someone who has mental illness, why not let them know about the options the water cures offers.
With the water cures, there is no profit. Only good health for the majority.

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)

We are currently speaking to hospitals to train staff in ways to decrease the readmission rates in several disease processes that pose high risk of <30 day readmission.
We can cut the rates by up to 70%. Ask us how.

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.

THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.

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.
