Your Natural Cures Foundation

Thinking Outside the Glass

The Water Cures is the natural cures foundation of anything we do to have good health. Outside the glass is your resource for help beyond what the water cures protocol requires or what the water cure can do for you.

So many life forms need water in various ways to keep alive or to reproduce. We are not alone in our need for water.

Look at water and beyond for what can help us have the best health.

Water Cures: The Natural Cures Foundation

As you go through the site, you will see our "outside-the-glass thinking." The water cures is not a cure all. If you start the water cures but continue other unhealthy habits, it may not be effective or not work at all. The Water Cures is the foundation for all health. Any other treatments you may use can work better if you use the water cures.

The Water We Drink

There is considerable research on the quality of water we drink. Spring, alkaline, filtered and distilled. Which is right? Which is best? Which works with the water cure? Whatever water you drink, it should be filtered at the least. Even better, water stored in glass and avoiding plastics.

The Food We Eat

In addition to properly hydrating and providing adequate electrolytes to our bodies, we need to also have the proper nutrients. The right kind of food and in the right time is essential.

The Air We Breathe

In addition to the quality of the air we breathe, the amount of air we breathe can affect our health. Why do you suppose yoga has such an incredible following? One of the main components of yoga is deep breathing. When we fully oxygenate our bodies, we unleash additional healing powers.

As a matter of fact, you can lose weight without lifting a finger. Using isometric exercises and deep breathing on a routine schedule, you can lose weight. No heavy lifting, no need to walk or run. Just sitting in place, you can lose weight.

Not Lifting a Finger, Really: A number of experiments looked at the mind-over-matter (as in grey matter) connection. One had a group of people exercise their little finger. Imagine a group of adults doing curls, push-ups and crunches with their little finger. They were the control group. The second group were told to imagine exercising their little finger, but not to actually do the exercises. All of the various related studies had the same results...about a 12-15% increase in strength.....without lifting a finger.

If you add exercise to the deep breathing, you can lose even more.

The Exercise We Get

Not to be overlooked is the exercise we get. We need exercise to have the best health possible. Most of us do not realize that we have two circulatory systems. One is for blood. The other circulatory system is for lymph. The lymph system depends on body movement to function properly.

If you have a job that requires sitting for long periods of time, you even more need exercise.

What is the best exercise you can do? It may surprise you. The best exercise you can do is whatever you will do. I prefer walking. But if I have limitations that prevent me, of what value is it. The important thing, get exercise. At Water Cures, we find outside walking offers the best mix of benefits, but do whatever you will do.

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.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

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.

Water Cures is not for Everyone

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.

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.
