Water Cure Fact or Fiction Questions and Commentary

Inquiring minds will want to know....

As you watch Water Cure Fact or Fiction with Dr. Batmangehlidgh and Bob Butts, there are some simple and logical questions you may want to ask.

Doctor Robert Brown, Chief of Infectious Disease at Wyoming Valley Health System was the representative of modern medicine.

Dr. Brown spoke of the need for double blind placebo testing.

How would you have a double blind test of salt. What could you use that would taste like salt and not be salt and yet be totally inert.

How would you have a double blind test where water was the treatment? How could you blind the group that gets the intervention and the group that gives the treatments so that neither would know that half of the patients were being given water and the other half were being given a placebo of water?

What could possibly be used as a placebo for water?

Researching Comments: The Truth About the Facts

What is a Placebo?

Note the conclusion in the link above.

Clinical trials, often financed by drug companies, doctor the findings (no pun intended). Many studies are never published because they do not provide the desired results. Sometimes the results are skewered because those who have the favorable results are excluded from the study. When studies are conducted in order to find negative results, inferior products are used.

A Scientific American article points out what nobody in health care wants to admit. In the analyses of FDA studies relating to psych drugs, it was found that placebos are 82 percent as effective as the antidepressant drugs.

Interestingly, another way to make the antidepressants appear to work better is to use active placebos.' For instance, using atropine (an alkaloid), certain nerve receptors will be blocked. There are also side effects like dry mouth.

Problem With Antidepressants: More Side Effects

We are not suggesting that anyone stop taking their antidepressant drugs. They do work for many, some of whom are our dear friends.

What we are suggesting is that there may be a better way for some. There may be alternatives to try first. There may be an alternative with no unwanted side effects.

We believe that alternative is the Water Cures Protocol.

Updated Understanding

There is now updated understanding regarding the use of coffee. While we hold that it is best to be avoided, the reasons are not the same as originally proposed in your bodies many cries for water. There was some interesting comments in the debate about coffee.

The moderator repeatedly talks about simply removing coffee and alcohol and quitting smoking will produce the dramatic results.

What Bob Butts and Dr. Batmangehlidgh neglected to say was that even if this is true on its own, the water cures protocol makes it possible for people to sustain the changes. However, the water cures protocol does create more dramatic effects on its own that just stopping smoking, stopping coffee and drinking more water.

Also, it is not just water, it includes salt, unprocessed sea salt. The entire protocol requires consuming about 1/2 to 80 percent of your diet as raw foods to get the vital nutrients we also need for good health.

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.

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.
