What is Paresthesia

If you've experienced pins and needles, then you know the answer to, What is paresthesia? You can experience facial paresthesia, paresthesia symptoms in the hands or feet. We often describe it as our hand or foot going to sleep. So what is paresthesia and what are the causes of paresthesia?

More importantly, how can you stop it, how can you prevent it. We now know that the Water Cures Protocol is the solution. The link at the bottom will tell you how to use it.

First, the due diligence.

Your pins and needles, even numbness could be something simple or it could be a stroke. How can you know which?

Generally, if the numbness comes on suddenly and there is no apparent reason for it, like you were laying on the affected side, you should suspect a stroke. If it is accompanied by weakness, it could be a stroke.

If you have the above with out any cause, you could be having a stroke.

If these symptoms are something new and there is no explanation for it, call 911 right now and say you think you are having a stroke.

If this is an ongoing health problem, read on for a possible solution for you. First, understand what is going on inside your body.

Which Kind of Paresthesia Do You Have?

Is it chronic, transient, dental or acroparesthesia. Or is your paresthesia from some other cause? And what does all of this mean, the big word names that is?

What is Paresthesia: The Definition / What Is It?

When you have paresthesia, your neurons or nerves are not functioning correctly. This is usually the result of a lack of circulation. Circulation on its own or a lack of essential nutrients, minerals or inadequate hydration are the unholy trinity of what could be the cause.

Every time your neurons send a signal, think of them as sending an electric impulse. Impulses are sent by the hundreds every second. When ever the nerve bundles ability to communicate to the brain is disrupted, all those electric impulses have nowhere to go. They just start firing off and in effect short circuit. Like a thousand little wires shorting out inside your body, they send the pins and needles feeling.

Sometimes when the ability to communicate is shut down, the nerves turn off the affected area. This accounts for the numbness. Sometimes the numbness can be so severe, an entire limb is as if dead. No muscle tone, no ability to move the extremities until the ability of the nerves to communicate is restored.

Acute or Transient Paresthesia

The next time you awaken in the night to your arm 'falling asleep.' you will most likely have experienced acute paresthesia. Acute means your symptoms appear suddenly and rapidly.

So long as you do not fall into the warning signs of a stroke or brain attack, you, like most people, will be just fine.

There is a solution to help prevent paresthesia in the first place. It is called the

Water Cures Protocol. More on why this works later.

Chronic Paresthesia

When you have chronic paresthesia, your numbness and tingling will have developed and gotten worse over an extended time period. You may have noticed a slight different feeling but may have ignored it.

Then as it gets more intense, you start to take note of it. But the longer it is present, the more potential damage is being done. At some point, the damage may be irreversible.

Any time you feel something wrong in your body, it should be cared for. Our body does not do things for no good reason. Any kind of pain or discomfort is there to warn us. You can skip the rest and to to the solution. Or you can discover more on why and how it happens in order to better be able to manage and prevent it.

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.
