Vitamin-D Depression
and Water Cures

Considering Vitamin-D depression and water cures connection, there are some interesting facts you need to know.

In the vitamin D research, there is a strong association between vitamin D and Depression. In obese patients there has been research that points to a relationship.

In the overweight and obese, those with low vitamin D levels had more depressive symptoms than those with higher vitamin D levels. It was further found that when vitamin D was supplemented over a period of 12 months, the symptoms were improved.

Those suffering with lupus often times have to avoid getting too much sunlight. Lupus patients are often vitamin D deficient.

Sun Light is Still the Best

Using the water cures protocol and natural sun light, you will most likely get all the vitamin D your body will need and a bit extra to store for future use (about a 2 week supply, all for free).

The Dark Side of Vitamin D Depression, Vitamin D Facts

What the vitamin D supplement pusher don't want you to know is the dark side of D supplements.

One PubMed published paper reviewed the widespread vitamin D supplementation. There is a concern that vitamin D can cause immunomodulatory related problems, namely, predispose the population to immune dysfunction. Lifelong supplementation of vitamin D in foods just may be a contributing factor in obesity and chronic disease around us.

Note: There is no evidence that we can get too much vitamin D from the sun. Likewise, there is little evidence indicating there is any risk of overdosing on any vitamins that naturally occur in foods. Only supplements can cause overdose induced toxicity.

Commonalities of Vitamin D and Water Cures

Connect the dots.

Sunlight helps our skin make vitamin D which is technically a steroid.

One study found that young people in Hawaii, who frequented the beach, were still vitamin D deficient.

We are getting a lot of vitamin D in processed foods and yet we still have an epidemic of obesity and chronic disease.

Vitamin D has been found to help depression.

Vitamin D is water soluble.

There is a commonality, although it is not that obvious at first glance.

Vitamin-D Depression and Water Cures

First, consider that we have two oceans of water inside our body. One outside our cells and one inside our cells. Our organs, including our skin, work best when they are properly hydrated and properly nourished with essential minerals.

Why would someone who spends a lot of time in the sun not have a lot of vitamin D? What if they were dehydrated on the cellular level and they could not produce the vitamin D in their skin? It would certainly provide a viable theory for the low numbers.

Finally, why does following the water cures help so many with depression and why does it help so many different kinds of depression? For vitamin D to work effectively, we need to be properly hydrated.

Once our bodies are completely and fully hydrated, every part can function optimally. So from getting the most vitamin D from our skin exposure to the sun.

Properly hydrating our bodies will prevent overdosing on vitamin D.

Vitamin-D Depression Conclusion:

Vitamin-D depression and water cures are related. Although some may benefit from vitamin D supplementation, especially the elderly, those with cardiac conditions, those who get little sun and the depressed, there may be a better way.

Simply using the water cures protocol may provide both the anti-depression properties and help the body produce more vitamin D from the sun exposure we do get during the day.

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)

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.
