Consider this statement that I found on a website:
I spent 6 weeks in a Pain Management Program where I learned to deal with the pain.
I explored a number of non-traditional healing techniques, as well – the most successful of which was NCR or Neural Cranial Restructuring http://www.ncrdoctors.com/faq/index.htm .
However, not one doctor asked me how much water I drank each day.
Finally, after 8 years of suffering from what was basically undiagnosed chronic pain
in the right mastoid area of my skull, I began to develop very severe heartburn
that was actually worse than the head pain
because it was so acute. I did a Google search for heart burn and found http://www.watercure.com. As I read the information there, I found that all I needed to do was drink more water to cure the heart burn. But, as I read further, I also read that pain in general could be caused by dehydration
. I immediately thought to myself, “No, it couldn’t be THAT simple – could it?”
I actually didn’t start taking water more seriously yet, but I did order the book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water. It was the day that the book arrived and I had a chance to read parts of it that I decided to try it. So, I began drinking 2 qt. of water per day. After only 3 days, my pain was reduced by 75 percent! It took a total of 2 more weeks before the pain was completely gone. This occurred in June of 2003.
Beginning in August of 2003, I began to rock climb again. The following winter, I skied again for the first time in 6 years. Now, it is July of 2004, and I’m climbing more and slowly getting back to where I was before all this happened.
The moral of this story: Take Water Seriously! Until now, I have to be very honest that I never took water intake seriously. I also avoided salt on my food. This was a very dangerous combination, as I was later to find out. I have to thank Dr. Batmanghelidj and www.watercure.com for giving me my life back – and Google for pointing me in that direction!
