The Solution for What Causes Leg Cramps?

To the question, what causes leg cramps, there is no simple answer. Leg cramps are also referred to as a charley horse. Here we will consider some of those causes of leg cramps and how to stop leg cramps.

What Causes Leg Cramps: Lack of Fluid and Electrolytes, we know that the ultimate cause of leg cramps is fluid and electrolyte imbalance: less than bodies needs.

    Included in the electrolyte imbalance are...

  • decreased amounts of potassium
  • inadequate sodium
  • decreased calcium
  • lack of serum magnesium

The Water Cures Solution for Electrolyte Imbalance

Following the water cures protocol can help most people to have the right balance of electrolytes. These minerals often work in concert with each other. They are part of the process that helps the water we drink to get into the cells of our bodies.

Medications that Can Cause Leg Cramps

  • Diuretics (these cause your body to loose water, result in mineral loss)
  • Satins (although they lower cholesterol, they also cause muscle injury)
  • intravenous iron sucrose
  • conjugated estrogens
  • raloxifene
  • naproxen
  • teriparatide

Water Cures Solution for Meds that Cause Cramps

The Water Cures protocol can safely manage the very things that diuretics are given for.

In the case of cholesterol, the question you need to ask, why does our body make cholesterol in the first place? Addressing that cause will lower the cholesterol levels and you will not need statins. The water cures protocol can correct your cholesterol levels.

Injury Can Cause Cramps

  • Overuse of muscles
  • Improper stretching or over stretching before exercise
  • Muscle strain
  • Over exercising
  • Keeping your muscle in the same position for a long time
  • Excessive or over stretching (muscle strain)
  • Hairline bone fractures (also called stress fractures)

The Water Cures Solution for Injuries that Cause Cramps

The water cures protocol can usually help prevent the damage or injuries that cause cramps. Many athletes who have started using the water cures protocol before working out have found they have increased performance and reduced post work out pain.

Common But Seldom Considered Leg Cramp Causes

  • Atherosclerosis or clogged arteries (felt when exercising.
  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) Numerous causes, life threatening risk
  • Osteomyelitis or infection of the bone
  • Inflammation caused by arthritis or gout may cause cramps
  • Nerve damage

The Water Cures Solution for Seldom Considered Causes of Cramps

The water cures protocol can usually help prevent or even correct the damage caused by atherosclerosis, osteomyelitis and reduce inflammation.

The Frontiers of Knowledge: When it comes to things like blood clots, there are a number of things we know that are not published and there is not research to explain. Blood clots, for one, are just such a frontier.

From experience in the field of bloodless medicine and surgery, surgeons know that a hematoma (blood clots) can be turned into blood that works just as good as what is circulating once lysed (a process of dissolution of cells, allowing them to be sucked back into the heart lung machine). At water cures, we believe that the process of properly rehydrating the body and providing the necessary electrolytes, our bodies could potentially reduce a clot to frank blood in the same fashion.

There is no way of knowing. The only way this hypothesis would be tested is in an emergency. When there is no other option available, this could be a viable option to save a life.

When it comes to the question, what causes leg cramps, the answer is most often fluid and electrolyte imbalance. The solution, salt and water.

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.
