Ali (Wales) on 03/12/2023: I had an allergic reaction 2 days ago - the first I’ve had in a long time. I was struggling to breathe, but I remembered that drinking water had alleviated other reactions I’d had some years back, so I drank at least half a liter of water & took a pinch of salt.
It all calmed down very quickly.
I recognise that I have been very dehydrated for a long time so have started implementing the Water Cures protocol as per their website. I do have the book ‘Your Body’s Many Cries for Water’ & must dig it out & read it again to remind myself.
I did go through a period of drinking 2-3 liters of water daily, some time ago, but was not taking any salt. It didn’t seem to make much difference. I was also pretty low in Potassium back then, but now eat a mostly plant-based diet, with quite a bit of raw food so do get more potassium now.
The unrefined salt is needed to provide electrolytes & trace minerals so the body can use the water properly. So much improvement can be gained when the body is properly hydrated.
Msannanola (New Orleans, La) on 02/17/2011: You must must must try the water cure and its various aspects. Sinus/allergies and aching joints are classic signs of dehydration.
I used the water cure successfully to rid myself of most allergy symptoms I even started having asthma symptoms which went away in two days of drinking sufficient water. You need 1/2 your weight in ounces of water and a little unrefined sea salt per day the pink Himalayan is great. You also need iodine, I used kelp and then later Lugol's solution. Magnesium, I use magnesium oil. The rest of what you need you will most likely get from your food. The water has made a huge difference for others who I have recommended it to.
One lady is off daily doses of Benadryl. Now she only takes it as needed. I am off of Zyrtec. I have stopped needing antibiotics 4 to 6 times a year! This has been a huge life change for me! I am about to turn 40 and I am so proud of taking control of my own health!
