International Kilogram / Milliliters

First, there are a few questions you need to answer before you use it.

How to Start the Metric Water Cures Protocol

Do You Know What Holistic Health Is?

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...

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.

Are You On Medications?

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.

Are You Seeing a Doctor For Treatments?

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 Pee Less Than 3 Times a Day?

Do you pass water less than three times a day? You may want to see your doctor before using the Water Cures protocol.

Do You Have Kidney Disease?

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.


The Basics of the Metric Water Cure Protocol

The Metric Water Cures Protocol

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.

Daily Water: How Much Using Metric Measurements

Note: This is in metric measurements. If you want American measurements, go to The US Measurement Water Cures Protocol

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.

How Much Unprocessed Salt Should You Take?

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.

When to Take the Salt and Water

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.

Start the Hydration Habit

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.

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.

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.
