How Water Cures Helped My R.S.D
(Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)

    There are people who believe that things in life happen for a reason. Sometimes what happens – no matter if it is a good thing, a bad thing, a funny thing or very serious – it makes you who you are and teaches the person a lesson in life and self-understanding. Even if the happening is traumatic or enlightening it will eventually make that person grow emotionally and spiritually. I am one of those people who believes that it can and will bring new meaning to self enlightenment.

    Six years ago, I was a nurse/paramedic who wanted more out of life than my current education provided me. So I went back to college in pursuit of a Physicians Assistant degree. I handled the first two years of college rather well, getting above average GPA’s. But, in doing this college thing, I knew that I still had to work and bring in money to support my family. So I took a side job that was offered to me by an old high school friend who was the plant manager of the facility. Upon visiting the plant and sitting down with that old friend, I made him aware that I had a few injuries along my way in life, but he hired me anyway.

    Three months into working, I literally got the shock of my life. The shock was from a malfunctioning machine that jolted me with 480 volts of electricity on a 60 amp current. It wasn’t until nine hours after the incident that I woke up in a hospital bed looking at my wife and our two boys. No one knew what actually happened until then.

    During the next 18 months, I was bounced back and forth between Cardiology and Neurology with each medical field saying that my problems lie with each other. Finally, as a new doctor at the hospital was brought onto my case, I got a definitive answer to my problems. He diagnosed me with a “Chronic Pain disease called, R.S.D.(Reflex Sympathetic dystrophy). A disease that is sometimes referred to as the suicide disease because anyone who has it either commits suicide because of the pain or has an heart attack because their body couldn’t stand up to the amount of pain and stress it puts on a body.

    I was put on a regiment of medications that numbered up to 14 different pills a day – ranging from pills to stabilize my organ hormones to controlled substance pain relieving medications. But all this time I was still battling the effects of the electricity on my body, it was deteriorating my body to an unstable stage.

    One of my old acquaintances, Denise DeBiasi, I knew from a local auto parts store, Cee Kay Auto Stores, saw my wife and I passing the store that she was working in, came out to ask me what had happened. My wife and I explained it all to Denise and she told us to stay right there. She came back out of the store with all sorts of papers and audio CD’s to read and listen to. I took her advise and listened to the CD’s and read all these papers intently. I knew I had to try something, anything to get some relief. All the doctors were doing for me was filling me up on pills that was turning me into a wasted zombie. At the age of 43, I couldn’t just give up and waste away.

    It took a little while for my body to adjust to using the watercure because of the different thing I had to give up and introduce a new way of living. But I was still fighting the effects of the electricity on my body. My case was a lot different that what would be normally seen. It should only maybe take up to two weeks to improve a person starting on the watercure, but with me it took nearly the next two years.

    After I started the watercure, I saw something that amazed me. Some of the feeling started to return to my legs, I saw the then dormant nerves start waking up and jumping through my skin. The doctors thought it was their doing that was starting to get my somewhat better, but it wasn’t. I told then that I had started on the watercure protocol and they basically told me to stay out of their offices if I continued to use a fake treatment. Hundred of thousand of dollars are spent on Orthodox medicine, while only a few dollars for food and supplements are spent on the watercure.

    What I studied for many, many years for different medical degrees failed me, and something that is virtually free did more for me, got me walking and driving a car again. I know I will never be able to return to my former employment in the medical field, but using the watercure had opened other avenues of life to me. I’m down to 4 medications per day and basically about 80% into remission of the R.S.D.

    If it wasn’t for my friend from Cee Kay Auto telling me about Dr. Batmanghelidj’s formula for the watercure, I know I wouldn’t be able to do anything that I do today. My wife and I even have co-founded an “anti-bullying” group with another family. We became anti-bullying advocates with this group called, P.A.S.S. / Parents Advocating for Safe Schools. The watercure works, I’m living proof of that. Pain and Illness should not be a way of life.

    I now live in Jenkinstownship, PA with my wife, Janet and our two sons. Todd jr and Jesse D. Without having them in my life and pushing me to keep going, to not let myself down and just be just another statistic of illness, I would have never been able to stay focused on doing the water cure nor would I have completed this manual. I’m actually able to have a life again, not just walking, but living life doing things with my family and friends. It’s for all the people in my life, I didn’t give up hope.

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.

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.
