The remedy for your medical problems may be as close as your faucet!  
Pigs will fly before the medical establishment will disclose something simple
and free in lieu of costly (and frequently dangerous) medications; but they do
tell us to do this, they just don't know, or don't tell us the great benefit.  In
forty years of practice I have seen many apparent miracles produced solely
by plain water.  You won't believe what 8-10 eight-ounce glasses of water per
day will do for many maladies.

      There is one major problem:  People won't drink that much due to the
inconvenience of frequent urination; a small price to pay for better health.  If
your urine is not a very pale yellow or even clear, you are not getting enough
water (does not apply to those taking B- complex vitamins.

      When I speak of water I do NOT refer to coffee, sodas or tea. Distilled or
spring is best but tap water will work just fine for most people.  Some places
have water which has an odor and is not at all that tasty.  Put a jug in the
fridge for a few days and it will taste better.  In addition, much of the chlorine
will vanish.  Prior to drinking, shake it vigorously for a while.  This will
oxygenate it.

      Cure #1: Dump the Tums and cure heartburn.  Heartburn may be a
signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract.  It is a
major thirst signal of the human body.  The use of antacids or tablet
medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and
the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage.  Tragedy: Not
recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids
and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and
duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the
gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.

      Cure #2: Water may prevent and cure arthritis.  Rheumatoid Joint Pain -
Arthritis - may be a signal of water shortage in the painful joint.  It can affect
the young as well as the old.  The use of pain-killers does not cure the
problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications.  
Intake of water will cure this problem.

      Cure #3: Back pain.  Low Back Pain and Ankylosing Arthritis of the Spine
may be signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs - the spinal
cushions that support the weight of the body.  These conditions should be
treated with increased water intake - not a commercial treatment, but a very
effective one.  Tragedy: Not recognizing arthritis and low back pain as signs
of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with pain- killers,
manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce
osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died.  It
will produce deformity of the spine.  It will produce crippling deformities of the
limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening complications.

      Cure #4: Angina.  Heart Pain - Angina - can be a sign of water shortage
in the heart/lung axis.  It should be treated with increased water intake until
the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical
supervision is prudent.  However, increased water intake may be your cure
for angina.

      Cure #5: Migraines.  Migraine Headache may be a sign that water is
needed by the brain and the eyes.  Migraine may be prevented by keeping
dehydration from establishing in the body and may be totally cleared up by
treating for the condition of dehydration.  This particular type of dehydration
might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss
of eyesight.

      Cure #6: Colitis.  Colitis Pain is a signal of water shortage in the large
gut.  It is associated with constipation because the large intestine constricts to
squeeze too much water from the excrements - thus the lack of water
lubrication.  Tragedy: Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will
cause persistent constipation, which can result in fecal impacting, verticulitis,
hemorrhoids, polyps, and appreciably increase the possibility of developing
cancers of the colon and rectum.

      Cure #7: Asthma.  Asthma, which also affects 12,000,000 children and
kills several thousands of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in
the body.  It is caused by the drought management programs of the body.  
Free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the body in the
form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water intake will prevent asthma
attacks.  Tragedy: Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in
growing children not only will sentence many thousands of children to die
every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the
remaining asthmatic children.

      Cure #8: High blood pressure.  Hypertension is a state of adaptation of
the body to a generalized drought when there is not enough water to fill all
the blood vessels which diffuse water into vital cells.  As part of the
mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the serum is filtered and
injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra
pressure is needed for the "injection process."  Just as we inject I.V. "water" in
hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at the same
time.  Water intake will bring blood pressure back to normal!  Tragedy: Not
recognizing hypertension as one of the major indicators of dehydration in the
human body, and treating it with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will,
in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries
that go to the brain.  It will cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes
that paralyze.  It will eventually cause kidney diseases.  It will cause brain
damage and neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.

      Cure #9: Adult-onset diabetes.  Adult-Onset Diabetes is another adaptive
state to severe dehydration of the human body.  To have adequate water in
circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of insulin is
inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells.  In diabetes
only some cells get survival rations of water.  Water will reverse adult-onset
diabetes in its early stages.  Tragedy: Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes
as a complication of dehydration may, in time, cause massive damage to the
blood vessels all over the body. It may cause eventual loss of the toes, feet
and legs from gangrene.  It may cause eye damage, even blindness.

      Cure #10: Blood cholesterol.  High Cholesterol levels are an indicator of
early drought management by the body.  Cholesterol is a clay-like material
that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them from
losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood
circulating in their vicinity.  Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture
nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against water
taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their
cell membranes.

      Cure #11: Depression, Loss of libido, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Lupus,
Multiple sclerosis, Muscular dystrophy.  These conditions may be caused by
prolonged chronic dehydration. If so, they will clear up once the body
becomes well and regularly hydrated.  In these conditions, exercising one's
muscles should be part of the treatment program.

The doctor who wrote this is unknown although the knowledge is rather
common.  Is it ALL completely true?  Will simply drinking enough water
eventually cure all of the above conditions?   The point is, it WILL improve
your health, it IS free, and it IS the right thing to do.  And as long as you don't
ignore your doctor's advice (which by the way is to drink 8-10 8oz glasses of
water per day) there is absolutely no risk.  No risk, no cost, no travel, definite

      So what are you waiting on?  Drink up!
