Doctors are often reluctant to consider the water cures science. They are unlikely to accept anything that is not science based. They want evidence based medicine and using simple logic is often thrown out. They say that they have debunked water cures. They evidently have not read the report we share below.
The Snoops, quack watchers and the naysayers of the water cures are at the least, misinformed. They are often times prejudice against anything that they claim not science based, even if it is. They are not experts in hydration. They have not even studied hydration to be able to provide informed explanations on it. They will often cite the lack of scientific evidence (even if it is there) to say that it does not work.
Also it should be noted that the founder of Quack Watch has admitted in court documents that he is, in effect, a paid shill of large corporate pharmaceuticals.
He does not attack large pharmaceutical companies for the illegal and death dealing drugs that we hear eventually being black labeled or even banned.
Please note: Not all on QuackWatch or Snoops reports are wrong. Many of the reports on treatments they expose as ineffective or dangerous are accurate. They do sometimes provide the science or the logic to prove that the treatments are unsafe.
When it comes to the water cure, there are several problem with their thinking.
- Does the lack of scientific evidence mean it does not work?
- Is there any science that shows it does not work?
- What qualifies as scientific evidence?
- How can you have a double blind placebo test with water? (not possible)
- If the Water Cure Science s nonsense, one site suggested, most important thing a scientist can say is “I could be wrong.” What if the naysayers asked themselves if they are wrong?
There is science that shows it works. Below you will find one from PubMed, the National Institute of Health.
The lack of science is often because of blindness to anything alternative. Most all drug studies are funded by the very pharmaceutical companies that benefit from the results of the studies. This is like someone funding a study to prove that the sun does not shine. The funding will only pay for research to be conducted at night.
Logic and common sense are not considered even if it could provide relief to those who use it. Where does critical thinking stop and ignorance start. When something like the water cures is offered for free, when there is no profit motivation in it, then why not consider it.
People who have tried the water cures protocol have found that it works. This is because the drought in the body is the cause of the symptoms.
The study proposed that hydration and volume expansion may lower sympatho-vagal ratio, thereby helping many clinical conditions. These condition include but were not limited to acute coronary syndromes, asthma, cancer, and stroke.
Hypertonic hydration rather than a low-salt diet, may be a potential strategy to treat some cases of hypertension associated with dehydration and autonomic dysfunction.
Interestingly, it suggested that oral hydration is best.
Perhaps hypertension and end-organ damage represent independent consequences of dysfunctional sympathetic and neuro-hormonal activation. Using an IV enables getting the volume increased faster but at a negative cost to overall health. The problem is sympathetic hyperactivity.
With oral hydration, vagal tone triggered by gastric distention, a benefit not possible with intravenous fluids.
The benefits of hydration and volume expansion offer novel methods to treat a wide range of clinical conditions through pharmacological or electrical modulation of cardiovascular or gastrointestinal baroreceptors.
Nursing Diagnoses: Fluid and Electrolyte Imbalance.
Another area that there is considerable science is in the field of nursing. The differential diagnoses, Fluid and Electrolyte Imbalance, less than bodies need is an example of the scientific recognition of a drought in the human body.
