Hey All, I received this email this morning, found it interesting and wanted to share it! Thought it might be helpful to some people!
11 Miracles in Your Faucet
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 or Miracle 2000Ã‚Â® as these can turn the urine
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
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
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
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
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 Ã¢Â€Â“ 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.

Its a very interesting, informative read!
It kinda creeps you out when you think back to childhood/teenager days of fizzing drinks being your own source of liquid
We have it...very interesting!
I agree with you, Indi!
My mom is one of them...she just forces herself to drink water and turns up her nose, but when it comes to a diet pepsi....she's all for it like there's no tomorrow...LOL!!!
Glad you enjoyed it!
I love your Star!!!
Oh I love water. Maybe that's one of the few things I do RIGHT with this whole nutrition thing. Glad to know that there were more benefits than I had even thought!
