The metric water cures protocol in Kilograms and Milliliters is here in beta. Metric does not work as smoothly as US measurements. So we are testing this until we come up with an easier formula.
First, there are a few questions you need to answer before you use it.
Should You Use The Water Cures Protocol? There are only a few reasons why not to use the Water Cures. What are they?
DO NOT USE Water Cures if a doctor is caring for your health. If you are taking medications or if you have kidney disease, then do not do this without speaking to your doctor first.
If your doctor has you on medications, the Water Cure protocol may be a problem. It may make your medications work too good and the dose will have to be adjusted. If you are using medications, then only use the Water Cures under your doctor's supervision.
If you are seeing and being treated by a doctor, then do not use the Water Cure protocol unless you first speak with your doctor.
Do you pass water less than three times a day? You may want to see your doctor before using the Water Cures protocol.
If you have kidney disease you should not use the water cure protocol without first consulting your doctor.
If you have a kidney or organ transplant, the water cure is not for you.
Low Salt Level Warning: If you have lab tests or your doctor has said your salt levels are low or if you are cutting back on salt and/or if you drink large amounts of water without salt, then you need to use caution on starting the water cures treatment.
Some with low salt EXPERIENCE DISORIENTATION OR WORSE. If you are low in salt and start taking more it may even make you become light headed or pass out.
If you drink large amounts of water and or have self restricted your salt intake, then only start the water cures protocol with the supervision of your doctor's.
It is necessary to slowly build up so your body can adjust to the additional salt.
This is the water cures protocol. This is the basic protocol. There is an advanced protocol. More information on "What is the water cure?" can be found throughout the site.
The daily intake of water should be your weight in kilograms multiplied by .0325 to get the daily total liters to drink. Divide this by 5 to get the amount you need to drink each time.
Or you can multiply your weight in kilograms x 6.5 to get the milliliters of water you need to drink each time you drink. If you multiply this times 5 and that will be your daily dose.
Never drink more than 950 milliliters in a 2 hour period and never without salt.
So a 136 kg man would need to drink about 899 ml each time and about 4435 ml daily.
Our bodies need about 0.6 ml salt for every 500 ml water.
This is based on the original findings of Dr. Batmangehlidgh, where it was suggested to take 1/8th teaspoon for each 16 ounces you drink.
In time, if this is not working, some may need to increase the amount. This is less than the amount of salt in a saline IV. Unprocessed salt has numerous minerals in addition to the electrolytes, up to 70 different minerals.
The salt is taken each and every time the water is consumed. The salt is dissolved in your mouth so that it gets absorbed into the gums and it gets into your blood stream. While it does not need to be fully dissolved, the better dissolved it is the better it will work.
Dissolve the salt in your mouth. Then drink the water. Ideally drink it within 20 minutes of when you awake. Then do not eat for about 30-45 minutes after you drink the water.
Do not drink again for 2 hours after you eat.
Do not drink during meals (too much water will dilute your digestion).
Finally drink about 30 - 45 minutes before sleep.
You can drink during meals, however, it is best to only have sips of water or juices and drinks that the body will read as foods.
Drinking water will dilute your stomach acids that are used for digestion. When we drink before a meal, our stomach is prepared for the food soon to enter. It makes the acids more readily available.
To start the hydration habit, start only doing it first thing in the morning and and 30-45 minutes before sleep. Do this every day for 30 days. Once it is a habit, add an additional third time. Again, do it three times a day for 30 days.
