Mental health self help starts with self awareness and self understanding. Water Cures make what ever you do work better. Really, here you will discover why it works.
Stress a drain on your brain. It produce reactions which are labeled depending on your behavior patterns. One of these reactions has the label of depression. Beyond just the blues, it is a feeling of difficulty in coping with the stress. Here you will discover how the water cures is an alternative mental health treatment.
Treatment is essential for some because they have a more difficult time dealing with the negative side of life. Most of us will experience depression in our lifetime. It helps us so long as it is part of our growth and development. Yet some have a harder time coping than others.
When we reach the 'harder time' point where we do not want to continue in the feelings, we have choices. We can get medical help, get spiritual help, we can do nothing (50% of all mental illnesses self heal).
There's one more thing...self help healing....we can begin the healing with mental health self help. Help is right in our kitchens.

Is this how you feel when you are not at your mental best. Then you need to discover the way of mental health self help.
You need the Water Cures.
The Water Cures works.
Lets start the consideration of mental health self help with the premise that depression is the way our minds exhibit their reaction to stress. The stress could be mental or physiological.
Can we improve stress management? If we could improve the efficiency of how the brain manages and processes stress, then depression could be easily managed. Maybe depression could even be eliminated by this improved efficiency.
Our mental efficiency has a tipping point with relationship to hydration. Science has found that the point of where the brain can become ineffective is 1% difference in hydration. Where your 1% lies could be between 4% and 5% or 6% and 7% dehydration. It is different for each person. What is the same, the difference is only 1%.
If one percent could make such a difference, what happens between full hydration and and the 1% tipping point. In other words, what if we were just under the tipping point, what would be the difference in mental abilities. What if we were 2% before or 3% before the tipping point. How much better would our thinking or mental functions be?
Many of the functions of the brain require the hydro-electric energy provided by the water we drink and the sodium we eat. This is energy that the brain produces when properly hydrated and the electrolytes are properly in balance.
Consider that balance. Lets start with the hypothesis that the inability the brain to function under stress (mental or physiological) is a state of fluid and electrolyte imbalance (read dehydration).
When the body is in a state of dehydration and lacks the appropriate electrolytes, it is in a stress state. The reaction to physiological stress is the same as the reaction to mental stress.
Stress results in our bodies having an autonomic reaction (think default reaction). This reaction causes further dehydration. During this response, the body releases hormones. To correct dehydration, our body works harder by releasing hormones to try to correct the imbalance.
The body releases...
Endorphins: prepare us to survive injury and hardship until danger is past.
Cortisone: mobilize the the use of stored energy and facilitates the use of raw materials. If the cortisone response lasts to long, there will be a resulting depletion of amino acid reserves. The body is in effect feeding on its self.
Vasopressin: causes vaso-constriction. It causes the constriction of the capillaries.It also plays a part in selectively allowing water into certain cells.
Nerve cells have a greater number of vasopressin receptors than other tissue cells. While the vasopressin puts the squeeze on the fluid volume, it also allows water to certain cells.
This process is a more selective when there is a shortage of water (read dehydration).
The RA system is activated when the bodies fluid volume drops. It keeps the capillaries tightened until the salt and water meet the body minimum requirements. The effect of this tightening can be seen or measured as blood pressure.
It should also be noted that stress can cause high blood pressure. Stress causes the body to use water to help break down stored materials like proteins, starches (glycogen) and fats. In order to compensate for the reduction in water, the RA coordinates with vasopressin and other hormones to accomplish the jobs to be done. The majority of the RA system activity happens in the kidneys.
When we drink more water and eat salt, the RA system decreases its activity.
This is one of the reasons people starting the water cures protocol see an improvement in their blood pressure.
The role of hydration for optimal function has been studied. If dehydration will diminish the mental effectiveness of someone with good mental health, how much more will dehydration affect someone who is dehydrated. Consider Hydration and Cognition, a 2007 study. It reviewed what we know, the 1% difference effect. This leads us to the conclusion that the simplest mental health self help starts with hydration and electrolytes.
The solution should seem obvious. However, so many people either refuse to, don't like to substitute other things for drinking water.
Since we use water as part of all of our physiological processes, we need to constantly replenish our reserves.
Unlike other self help, this mental health self help only requires that we drink water and take a pinch of salt. The solution is that simple.
Only pure water is designed to be the perfect solution for our hydration needs.
To better transport the water, we need the electrolytes found in salt. Only unprocessed salt provide the right proportions of sodium, potassium and other trace elements we need for health.
