The number one water cure therapy is the water cure protocol. It may seem complicated but is simple. Your daily amount of water, your total water consumption for a day should be your weight in pounds divided in half. That number is how many ounces of water you should drink in a day.
Divide that number by 5 or 6 and you have your individual dose of water or how much you would drink every time you drink.
With each 16 ounces of water you drink, dissolve in your mouth 1/8th teaspoon of salt.
Never drink more than 32 ounces of water in a 3 hour period and never drink the water with out dissolving the salt in your mouth. Failure to do this could result in fluid overload and washing out essential nutrients.
There are a number of ways water can help our bodies heal. Here are a few of the many.
The moist warm heat of the steam works both on the outside your body and inside your lungs.
The steam bath often reaches temperatures of 90 degrees.
An essential part of using a sauna is taking a cooling shower after completing the sauna. The cooling brings additional health benefits. Important Warning: failure to cool down after use of a sauna could cause life threatening health complications in those with heart conditions.
As steam heats you up, you perspire more. This helps your body eliminate toxins and boosts your immune system.
Since the sauna makes you sweat, make sure you have a lot of water within you to sweat out. Use the water cures protocol at least 45 minutes before using the sauna. Some choose to increase the amount of water you drink prior to the sauna. Make sure and take the salt too.
Your body will be under water up to your shoulders.
Water could be up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes. Sometimes herbs, Epsom salt, sodium bicarbonate and or bath salts may be included. Although the most obvious benefit is relaxation, the various minerals, if added, can help in numerous ways, both to the skin and internally. The body will absorb a number of trace minerals and the salt, which will help healing.
Your body will soack up salt water and the sun. The healing effects of both will provide instant feelings of improved health.
Only your bottom side and maybe part of your hips are soaked in water or salt solutions.
Hot, cold or alternating between the two, this is a mini version of the immersion bath. It is highly beneficial for hemorrhoids, and certain skin conditions.
Other benefits include treating constipation, skin inflammation, prostate issues, impotence, uterine cramps, vaginal discharge.
Originally called a whirlpool bath, jets of water, bubbles or both massage your submerged body. This is one of the most well known of the water cure therapy types
The water and bubbles can be sent your way with pressures that are high, low or pulsating.
The most important benefit comes from circulation improvement. You will find it to be very relaxing.
Give your feet a soak.Soaking your feet in a tub of warm will do wonders. Want to turbo charge your benefits. Add Epsom's salts or bath salts. Even Celtic Sea Salt will do the trick. The only exterior part of your body with more blood vessels than your feet is your head. This makes your feet a great place to absorb the minerals and the salt which will help improve your health and eliminate numerous aging complaints.
One study found that they even improve coronary artery disease for those with the mild to moderate form of it.
If you have foot pain, this water cure therapy is for you.

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)

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.

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.
