I stumbled upon this website and its too good to be true-

Water is the cure-all?

Take a look:www.watercure2.org...

Or is this just a silly website?

I wouldn' t try it. Water can kill you (really) if you take enough of it. Someone died from drinking too much water earlier this year at a fraternity initiation.

According to these people, you can throw away all your meds.

Water will cure you of anything- Sorry i posted this. Seems silly and bad advice.

i have had probably a total of 12 sodas in roughly 4 or 5 years now. now, when i drink soda, my body aches for a while after. people really need to consider what they put in to their body. as with religion and science, social actions/habits should always be questioned and not just accepted.

the human body is not made to live off of mcD's and dr.Pepper. the website listed above does not advocate an excessive amount of water. nor an excessive amount of salt. with the exception of their recommendation to pile it on your food
. it is already found too much in processed foods.

anyway, the point is that we are made up of mostly water and our culture is slowly dehydrating itself into sickness. drink a fair amount of water. stop drinking high sugar content sugar water.

high fructose = lots of sugar
corn syrup = liquid sugar
therefore:
high fructose corn syrup = high sugar content sugar liquid.

keep that in mind when buying products at the super market. just to note, most european/imported products are made with plain old sugar, not super sugar.

i once heard that if you are thirsty, you are already at the first stages of dehydration. now imagine if every time your body was sick, you stood out in the cold? that is the same as drinking soda when you are thirsty.

soda used to be considered a "candy" or treat. now it is commonplace. but what am i saying? gluttony used to be considered nasty. now 60% of our damned country are fat-butts.

I beleive that drinking pure water daily is esential to ordinary growth and development. It is also an important aid to regenerative processes as well as normal function. Water is the most aboundant thing in the world. It is truely special. I am greatful for it and dead without it. Here's to water.

Yes i agree , we can't live without " water " i. e . H2O , however it being a cure for ALL is highly unlikely . it could be a good sidekick though ....

That site has advertisement all over it.....

I found a few links that advertise selling purifiers and stuff like that so of course they are gonna say water is a cure all.

As far as myself, I drink about one gallon a day...I need it. I run and PT alot and especially that it's starting to warm up I have to drink more.....

Water is good, soda is too.....note that there is a difference in the two.
One cannot properly hydrate on soda and without drinking a descent amout of water. As a serious runner I can feel the difference if I do not get enough water in my system prior to running.....I have to hydrate.

Well, that website is, in fact, just like an infomercial. It is true though. Water is the most important part of the human body. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day ((as opposed to 8 glasses of sugar (coke, pepsi etc) that you all have stated you drink instead of water)) will make you feel ten times as better.


It is common knowledge that the body is made up of abut 80% water. So don't you think the more you put into your body, the better your body will function. Water is the best thing to drink. This is a proven fact. No liquid is better for your body then water. Period. Because most of the "thirst quenchers" on the market contain an overload of sugars.


Remember kids!! 8 glasses of water a day keeps the doctor away!

The thing I first noticed was there are no studies presented, just a bunch of testimonials and doctors saying things like 'cancer is caused by dehydration'. The BSometer went off the scale.

I wouldnt use the word "water" I would much rather go for the term "hydration".

being hydrated does prevent a lot of things, for example, when I went to basic training, they made us drink water a lot. hardly any of us ever got headaches, or got sick. very few of us pulled muscles. basically it prevented a lot of bad things. yes water is good for but too much can kill you. if you drink too much water it can be dealy, there was someone in basic who drank too much water and died. so it can kill you.

but water can help prevent headaches, if you are hydrated all the time, getting a headache would be very suprising. a lot of headaches are caused by dehydration. water also prevents cramps if you drink it.

hydration is very important. it can help prevent certain things as well as fix the problem. drugs on the other hand do not fix the problem they fix the symptom. sometimes drugs is the only option, but other than that, there is a natural cure for many things. many people dont know it.

yeah, there are many things that can cause cancer, just like you can add different numbers and get the same product.

It's not real sorry, because if you have an infection, water helps ease the infection from enflaming, but no cure, you need antibiotics, some of which your body has, sometimes types you need in pills, in order to cure, water is simply a good diet tool, for me at least, I drink TONS of water, with all my pills I'm taking especially, and it keeps me from getting hungry, as long as I include mixing other non related food items too...(more pills), but this isn't the point, water keeps you hydrated...the site is way too overboard.

I actually bought the book "The Water Cure" last year after suddenly becoming so allergic to my cats I was breaking out in hives. There is a specific calculation based on body weight and other things you consume to come up with how much you need to drink, but it is also important to take a pinch of sea salt every 32 ounces or so.

I was cured of my hives, allergies and sinus problems within days. When it comes to allergies and asthma, there is definately a dehydration conncetion. It also helps a LOT of other things, but I don't believe it is a cure all.

By the way, the guy who wrote the book says tap water is all you need, even if it is a municipal supply (chlorinated). Another thing I got from the book (having lived all my life on well water and now living on municipal water I am very sensitive to the smell and taste of chlorine) is that if you leave a pticher of water out on the counter for a few hours, the chlorine will evaporate out of it.

For me it was a matter of desperation after the antihistamines failed (the book explained why) and hey - it cost me no more than the price of the book and some sea salt to try it. I thought - what the hey, and it worked. If you have serious sinus congestion, the sea salt chased with water can give you a sudden drain and clear up about 20 minutes later. so, it may not cure everything, but I highly recommend it for anyone with allergies and sinus conditions, because it will work for that.

About 6-8 full servings of water should be consumed every day at least.
Think about the below site the next time you crack open a ice cold Soda.


lancaster.unl.edu...





Q: Will I gain weight by drinking soda?

A. You will certainly add extra calories to your diet. A 12-ounce soda contains 10-12 teaspoons of sugar. Sugar content is listed in "grams" on the label. Four grams equal one teaspoon of sugar.


I also saw at a seminar where someone puts a cooked chesseburger in a blender with water and lets it congeal during his speach. Really pretty nasty looking the scum of fat on the top.

I read some goth kids blog long time ago where it listed ways to commit suicide and that was one of them lol

Drink enough water daily, however when I get the amazon ass flu I'm not going to rely on water to cure it lol

That's down to hyponatremia (the dying thing, anyway).

As you consume large amounts of water over the course of a day, blood plasma (the liquid part of blood) increases thereby diluting the salt content of the blood. At the same time, your body also loses salt by sweating. The point being - you can't just replace water; you've got to replace those electrolytes too, and this is why it can be a problem for athletes (amongst others).

Ironically, as certain teens have tried to overcome the dehydration common after taking Ecstasy, some have fallen victim to fatal hyponatremia by overcompensating and drinking far too much water over far too short a period of time - Leah Betts and Anna Wood were two highly publicised cases. It's also not a pleasant way to die (if there is such a thing).

Bottom line? Be sensible. Don't drink too much water over a short period of time unless you're also replenishing your electrolytes (and this is why Gatorade can be good for your health...). Too much of a good thing can indeed kill you.

Yah, but skim off that congealed fat, and that's some darn good eatin'.

I stopped drinking soda, fruit juice, etc. a few months ago. All I really drink is water now. My system feels constantly flushed and cleaned (H20 is the universal solvent, you know), and I feel less like a "couch slug", so excercise is a lot easier, too. Overall, I fell much better. Water is definitely not a cure-all, though, you still need your daily dose of nutrients from fruits and veggies to make it all come together, the water is just to replace the water you're urinating and defacating out and to help flush the bad toxins through.

As for Gatorade, yeah, it's got its good stuff in it, but look at the ingredients, half the stuff is total junk, anything you could be benefiting from is probably cancelled out from all the sugars and other toxins in it.
