A List of Conditions and Diseases Sea Salt Cures

The expression, 'Sea Salt Cures' is not an idle statement. The Saudi Gazette featured Dr. Rizwan Ahmed in a headline saying salt cures 73 different diseases or conditions. The doctor quotes the ancient writings, “O Ali, commence and conclude your meal with salt, since salt is a cure for 70 illnesses such as insanity, leprosy, stomach pain and tooth ache."

Note: in past times, depression and other mental illnesses were considered to be insanity. One advertisement in a 1904 newspaper spoke of a cure for stupidity. Stupidity was at the time the term used for both mental illnesses and mental retardation, now referred to as intellectual disability.

Read an English translation of the Saudi Gazette article.

At Water Cures, we have found that the number of diseases and conditions that salt plays a role in improving health is over 76.

Below is our list of the various diseases or conditions that we have seen improve or disappear on the water cures protocol. As we receive testimonials or as our coaches treat the various conditions, we will add them to our list. For the various diseases, once we have confirmed the water cures works, we will change the color of these to red.

Unprocessed salt is probably one of the best antibiotics available to man and animal. Thus, any disease that is caused by bacteria can benefit from the water cures protocol.

People with any disease that benefits from an acid environment will benefit from the alkalizing effects of the unprocessed sea salt.

The vital minerals in the unprocessed salt provides additional neuro-protective benefits.

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.
