WaterIWATER: Factor Ready is not a Water Dealer or Distributorship and we do not stock, ship or sell water supplies. We can nevertheless supply you with beneficial "prepping" tips per this article, and direct you to some good health oriented supply sources we have discovered. Texas Tip: When seeking to wet your whistle (mouth) while outdoors, always remember to drink upstream from the herd :-)...

WATER FILTRATION: Needless to say, good clean pure water is absolutely vital for our ongoing good health, and is second only to oxygen on the list of human necessities. In regard to survival times, we can reportedly go up to 3 minutes without air, live 3 hours in a truly harsh enviroment, go 3 days without water (although dehydration can occur within 1 hour in hot areas), and survive up to 3 weeks without food. Where water is concerned, weʼd certainly recommend at minimum we all standby store (in a cool and dark dry place preferably) some emergency water. For safest water filtration results with the best taste too, use a high quality water filter and/or treatment purification drops. In addition to filtration different camps advocate Alkaline ability (for raised pH) and/or Hydrogen ability (for added oxygen) to enhance health benefits. AquaTruWater.com has an affordable and compact countertop reverse osmosis purifier, that is recommended by Mike Adams, "The Health Ranger." Per his office (NaturalNews.com) he also likes the Big Berkey and is a Brand Ambassador for the Synergy Science Echo 2 System. You'll find the BigBerkeyWaterFilters.com line of popular filters is consistently well rated, and is an affordable recommendation from Chris Wark at ChrisBeatCancer.com and others. Doug Kaufmann at knowthecause.com and both Ty and Charlene Bollinger at TheTruthAboutCancer.com are Echo Ambassadors and advocate the Echo 2 Structured Molecular Hydrogen type water units. Dr. Josh Axe (DrAxe.com) and Dr. Tony Jimenez (Hope4Cancer.com) among others, endorse it as well. Structured water is said to store energy, much like a battery. It grows (charges) by absorbing radiant energy. Both light waves and infrared waves, for example, charge structured water with energy. When the body has sufficient energy, its aqueous interior is highly charged allowing for optimized cellular and metabolic function, in addition to greater hydration and detoxification activity. This means that the more structured a water becomes, the more potential it has for enhancing hydration as well as cell-to-cell communication. As Robert Scott Bell (Robert Scot Bell Show) says, "As hydrogen meets oxidative stress, water is formed. Deeper hydration occurs. And it all happens on a cellular level." There are presently over 700 studies confirming various benefits of this type of water. It has shown to be therapeutic in over 150 disease models, and can aid in fighting cancer, diabetes, parkinsons, rheumatoid arthritis, bi-polar disorder, alzheimers, etc. It can essentially benefit every organ of the human body. Hydrogen-rich water is water infused with molecular hydrogen. In research studies, it has been demonstrated that hydrogen infused water containing a dissolved hydrogen concentration of 0.5-1.6 ppm can be therapeutic for human consumption. Scientific details may be found at  http://www.molecularhydrogeninstitute.com Discover more on the broad based hydrogen enriched benefits produced by the premiere Echo 2 Structured Water units along with other Synergy Science models, featuring unique multi-patented self-cleaning and broad-based filtering abiliites too, all at https://www.synergyscience.com/indexx.html

Others, such as Robert Wright at the Americn Anti-Cancer Institute (americanaci.org) favor the ionizer alkaline water. He advises an ionizer is his number one natural product recommendation for most cancer patients. He also advises that “alkaline water is not ionized water, but ionized water is alkaline water. The Ionized water is steeped in science with its high, low negative ORP (oxidation reduction potential), ultra high alkalinity, and hydrating micro-clustering.” Therefore, they produce more positive effects than just alkalizing the water, including water filtering chores with most models. Note: Mr. Wright personally recommends the Kangen.com brand of quality water ionizers, which are available from his authorized outlet. Another popular brand is Emco Tech at RoyalWater.com. Their models are available from various health outlets. Articles at these locations describe many Ionizer common health benefits as does https://alkalinewaterplus.com/benefits-of-alkaline-ionized-water/ . Note: Mr. Wright has also developed a cancer protocol utilizing alkaline water which may be found at: https://www.cancertutor.com/bob_wright/.

We also personally like The Seychelle.com company with their exceptional line of portable water filters that even includes an Extreme filter that eliminates radiation contamination. Their filters also serve to raise the water pH which is a healthy bonus, especially their pH2O line, which is specifically designed for increased boosts. Their line includes water pitchers, bottles, straws, etc. Aquamira.com also has a good reputation and offers water bottles, purification drops, etc. We all definitely need to have some portable water bottles on hand (at least one for each person) with spare filters for emergency and/or bug out use. You can even use these now for everyday replacement of costly bottled water. Seychelle bottles as example, provide up to 100 gallons of filtered water before a fresh filter is needed. This would equal 757 half liters of bottled water, for just pennies per gallon. The bottles may be used over and over, are recycle friendly, with no leach and BPA free. Be aware too, that AugasonFarms.com offers UltraPure water cans (24 per pak with 50 year shelf life), 55 gal. water storage containers, AlexaPure Pro Water Filters, and other emergency supplies as well as their reknown quality Emergency Food, etc. We might well need the ability to catch rain water if under all out extended disaster conditions. For further emergency precautions we also suggest you download our First Aid Tips pdf article under Downloads in the Health Tips folder and acquire the books: "Where There Is No Doctor" by David Werner and "When All Plans Fail" by Paul R. Williams, M.D. And of course, really do store some emergency long life food along with your water plus obtain a good First Aid Kit. On a healthy side note, the Omega-3s found in good Krill Oil supplements can definitely help avoid cellular dehydration issues.

EMERGENCY WATER TIPS: Short of a good water filter, questionable tap water may be boiled for safe use for 3-5 minutes (add 1 minute in boil time for each 1000 feet in boiling location altitude). An alternative is to treat water with plain unscented household laundry bleach (5-6% hypochlorite under 6 months old). Use the generally suggested rate of 8 eye drops or 1/8 teaspoon per gallon of water, or 10 drops for a 2 liter soda bottle, or 1/2 teaspoon for 5 gallons. Double the dose if water to be treated is cloudy. Let stand for 30 minutes before use. Storage time should generally not exceed 3-6 months, but some sources say up to 2 years ok if treated and stored in a cool and dry dark environment (Note: up to 5 years is applicable if treated with the Aquamira drops and properly stored). Also, reportedly Lugol's 7% USP Premier Iodine at 2-3 drops in a liter of tap water will purify same, or 3-6 drops in a liter of river water will kill bacteria and make the water potable. Commercial bottled water and distilled water will generally fall under the 2 year storage rule. Plastic bottles should have a number imprinted on bottom of bottle, indicating type of plastic used in mfgr. of same, and for recycle purposes, as follows: 1 – PET, polyethlyene terephthalate, 2 – HDPE, high-density polyethylene, 3 – PVC, polyvinyl chloride, 4 – LDPE, low-density polyethylene, 5 – PP, polypropylene, 6 – PS/PS-E, polystyrene / expanded polystyrene, 7 – OTHER, resins or multi-materials. As a general rule, bottles with numbers 1, 3, 6 or 7 should not be refilled after initial use, but be recycled, as they are more subject to leach toxins. Bottles with numbers 2, 4 or 5 are usually ok for self refill. However, none of the bottles, regardless of number stamped should be exposed to relatively high heat, as leaching can occur (the more and longer exposed to heat), and they should definitely not be used to heat water in. For pH on 20 bottle water brands see https://alkalinewaterplus.com/analyzing-comparing-brands-of-bottled-water/ Note that many are acidic (alkaline above 7.0 being the much healthier). Containers previously used for milk or juice should not be used as contaminates can remain, but plastic soda bottles are suitable if properly cleaned. Water can be sifted thru paper coffee filters or even a T- shirt prior to treating, which can aid in removing any visible sediments and extend filter life.

HOW MUCH WATER TO DRINK: How much water should you drink a day (supplies permitting) ? As with most things, this depends on the individual and there are many factors (both internal and external) that ultimately affect our needs for water. Visit healthline.com which suggests the following water overviews: You may have heard that you should aim to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. How much you should actually drink is more individualized than you might think. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) currently recommends that men should drink at least 104 ounces of water per day, which is 13 cups. They say women should drink at least 72 ounces, which is 9 cups. Even still, the answer to exactly how much water you should drink isn’t so simple. Their water recommendations say while the eight glasses rule is a good start, it isn’t based on solid, well-researched information. Your body weight is made up of 60 percent water. Every system in your body needs water to function. Your recommended intake is based on factors including your sex, age, activity level, and others, such as if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Adults: The current IOM recommendation for people ages 19 and older is around 3.7 liters for men and 2.7 liters for women. This is your overall fluid intake per day, including anything you eat or drink containing water in it, like fruits or vegetables. Of this total, men should drink around 13 cups from beverages. For women, it’s 9 cups. Children: Recommendations for kids have a lot to do with age. Girls and boys between ages 4 and 8 years should drink 40 ounces per day, or five cups. This amount increases to 56 to 64 ounces, or 7 to 8 cups, by ages 9 to 13 years. For ages 14 to 18, the recommended water intake is 64 to 88 ounces, or 8 to 11 cups. Women of reproductive age: If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, your recommendations change. Pregnant women of all ages should aim to get 80 ounces, or ten 8-ounce glasses of water each day. Breastfeeding women may need to up their total water intake to 104 ounces, or 13 cups. Of course always consult your doctor should specific medical conditions or issues be involved.

HOW MUCH WATER TO STORE: How much water should you store? One gallon per person, per day for 2 weeks is absolute minimum recommended amount. Active adults should drink at least 2 quarts per day. Plus, it would be beneficial to add another 1 gallon or more per day for cooking, bathing, toilet flushing, etc. Bottom line is, the more water you can store the better. See the unique stackable containers at WaterBrick.org. Their standard size unit holds 3.5 gal. or the one half size holds 1.6 gal. Solar tubes are available from Amazon and others, that would allow heating or even boiling water when they are placed in sunlight (such as stood up at a 45 degree angle). Important Water Notes: Where possible, it would behoove us health-wise to consume alkaline pH water with a pH above the 7.0 neutral range. However, if pH raised by filters and/or water ionizers, most stored water will usually decline fairly quickly (such as within 48 hours) back to it's original pH value. Therefore, it would usually warrant raising just prior to consumption under most emergency conditions. The alkaline pH drops (such as Acquamira.com) would probably be the most convenient to have on hand for this purpose. However, baking soda would also work, at 1/2 tsp per 1 gallon of water, or squeezing 1/2 lemon (if available) into 8 oz. of water. Natural apple cider vinegar at 1-2 tsp into 8 oz. water 3 times daily can help raise body pH as well as serve as a general purpose health tonic. Water ionizers are well rated for consistent alkaline pH filtered water, but powered models do require electrical power to operate plus a pressured source of water. So, although beneficial, they may not be fully operational under true emergency conditions. Nevertheless, they remain recommended by many for everyday healthful use under normal conditions. See benefits at https://alkalinewaterplus.com/benefits-of-alkaline-ionized-water/  Exceptional health benefits are also being reported with the Echo 2 Structured (Molecular Hydrogen) Water units developed by Synergy Science. Note: portable models such as the Seychelle pH20 water filter/pitcher can pf course serve under normal or emergency conditions provided a water base is available. 

by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. and author of above title book and ”Your Body's Many Cries for Water”
Excerpts from his articles at…WaterCure.com...appear below...

Our life, our planet. Over 70% of the earth's surface is water. However, most of it—98%--is salt water. Only 2% of the earth's H20 is fresh water that we can drink, and of this, almost all is trapped in frozen glaciers. You are not just what you eat; you are what you drink.This is why water is so important to your health.

The Water Cure (TWC) does not sell water or purification systems or any related products. We offer insights and information; both free and in books that give you easy-to-understand scientific explanations on why water is vital to your well-being. TWC believes promoting "water for health, for healing, for life" is an invaluable public health message. We can all change the way we drink – by drinking pure, natural water that is good for our health, our pocket book, and our environment. No miracles. Just common sense backed by Dr. F. Batmaghelidj’s years of research and investigation into why water works so well in keeping us healthy and pain free. It can even cure illness in some people who get sick.

Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transport nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water. Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink. Dr. B's pioneering work shows that Unintentional Chronic Dehydration (UCD) contributes to and even produces pain and many degenerative diseases that can be prevented and treated by increasing water intake on a regular basis. If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, make drinking enough natural water a habit in your life. It won't take long for you to feel the benefit. It is a free investment for your long-term health.

Through activities of daily living, the average person loses about 3- 4 liters (about 10-15 cups) of fluid a day in sweat, urine, exhaled air and bowel movement. What is lost must be replaced by the water/ fluid we drink and the food we eat. We lose approximately 1-2 liters of water just from breathing. The evaporation of sweat from the skin accounts for 90% of our cooling ability.
Exercise, sweating, diarrhea, temperature, or altitude can significantly increase the amount of water we lose each day. The most common cause of increased water loss is exercise and sweating. Even though we are all at risk of dehydration the people most vulnerable are infants, elderly adults, and athletes. They are either not able to adequately express their thirst sensation or able to detect it and do something in time.

If you are thirsty, it means your cells are already dehydrated. A dry mouth should be regarded as the last outward sign of dehydration. That’s because thirst does not develop until body fluids are depleted well bellow levels required for optimal functioning. Monitor your urine to make sure you are not dehydrated:

A hydrated body produces clear, colorless urine.
A somewhat dehydrated body produces yellow urine.
A severely dehydrated body produces orange or dark-colored urine.

The effects of even mild dehydration include decreased coordination, fatigue, dry skin, decreased urine output, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, blood pressure changes and impairment of judgment. Stress, headache, back pain, allergies, asthma, high blood pressure and many degenerative health problems are the result of UCD (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration).

To better determine how much water you need each day, divide your body weight in half. The answer is the approximate number of water ounces you should drink daily. You should drink half of your body weight in ounces. If you weight 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces water (3.13 quarts, 2.98 liters or about 10-12 cups of water a day). If you weigh closer to 100 pounds you will need only about 50 ounces of water or about four 12-ounce glasses daily.
Individuals who are physically active or live in hot climates may needs to drink more.

We are designed to drink pure, natural water. Avoiding sodas/soft drinks to provide your fluid needs. The high sugar content and artificial flavors in soft drinks are harmful to your health.
Tea, coffee, soft drinks contain water, but the diuretics contained in these caffineated beverages flush water out of your body. Don’t count on them to replenish fluid loss. It is OK to drink them occasionally, but if you drink them constantly and don’t drink enough pure natural water, then you are severely compromising your long-term health.Natural pure water is the best choice. If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle and long-term health, make water a habit and a priority in your life.

During intense exercise the kidneys cannot excrete excess water. The extra water moves into the cells, including brain cells. The result can be fatal. For that reason, athletes should estimate how much they should drink by weighing themselves before and after long training runs to see how much they lose, and thus how much water and salt they should replace. The studies that found 13% of the runners tested drank too much water, resulting in abnormally low blood sodium levels. The low sodium levels made many of these people very sick, and close to the point of death. The importance lesson here is to balance your water intake with your sodium intake.

Almost all-municipal water in is of high quality and very drinkable. The best source of specific information about the water quality in your area is your local water supplier. Water suppliers are required to send their customer an annual water quality report. Contact your water supplier to get a copy, or see if your report is posted on line. It is important you know your local sources of water quality, and the quality of your local drinking water. To get facts and information about your tap water, drinking water standards and contaminants, contact your local water supplier. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and American Water Works Association (AWWA) are the two credible institutions that provide information you need regarding quality of your water. EPA website www.epa.gov/safewater AWWA website: www.awwa.org.

Bottled water’s biggest advantage is convenience. The Americans now drink more water from bottles than any other nation. Bottled water in is a $16 billion-a-year industry. EPA sets standards for tap water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets bottled water standards based on EPA’s tap water standards. Most bottled water is simply tap water put through conditioning filters to make it taste better. Pepsi’s Aquafina and Coco-Cola Co’s Dasani are both made from purified tap water. This doesn’t make it bad, but is something to consider when adding up cost and benefits. Bottled water is safe to drink if it meets the standards. Contrary to popular belief the FDA does not carefully regulate the bottled water industry; therefore even bottled water can be impure unless it is the right kind of water. There are indeed many right kinds of high-quality bottled water that come from great natural water sources, such as spring, glacier, mineral water. High-quality bottled water may be a desirable option for people with special health needs and those who can afford the price.
Just make sure your choice of water does not become a limiting factor to drinking it. If you are drinking less water because of the cost of bottled water, supplement your bottles with reusable bottles or just fill up a previously used bottle with H20 from the tap.

It is always wise to get a filter if you are not sure how safe your tap water is. There are many water filter products on the market at many different prices. To shop for a good filter, you need to know what a filter factually reduces, or removes, and what it costs. Ideally, you want water that has been filtered via a reverse osmosis process that removes chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, chlorine, fluoride, bacteria, and viruses. How do you choose a good filter? It is important you do your own research – ask your local health food store, do on-line research and check the Consumers’ Report for products and prices evaluations. We are not in the business of selling water or any water products; however, here are a couple of recommended sources:
The water shop: “The Alkalizer” pure reverse osmosis water filter: www.watershop.com
Multipure water filter: www.multipureusa.com

Start your morning’s right: Morning is when you are most full of toxin and dehydrated. Reach for a big glass of water first thing in the morning – even before coffee. This water in the morning really gets the blood flowing. Drink a glass of water when you get up and another when you go to bed.
-Take regular water break breaks.
-Avoid relying on sodas to provide your fluid need.
-Drink water before and after food; ideally drink a glass of water half an hour before you eat your meal and half an hour after the meal. You can drink water with meals, and drink water anytime your body feels like it.

*It is very important you balance your sodium intake with your water consumption. Take 1/4 teaspoon of salt per quart of water - every 4-5 glasses of water. Be sure to get sea salt. The best is Celtic sea salt or Himalayan sea salt, both of which are readily available at any health food store.

You should always drink water prior to eating, and after eating, to support the digestive process. The stomach depends on water to help digest food, and lack of water makes it harder for nutrients to be broken down and used as energy. The liver, which dictates where all nutrients go, also needs water to help convert stored fat into usable energy. If you are dehydrated, the kidneys turn to the liver for backup, diminishing the liver’s ability to metabolize stored fat. The resulting reduced blood volume will interfere with your body’s ability to remove toxins and supply your cells with adequate nutrients.

Keep a water bottle by your side at all the times. Use either bottled water or tap water, and carry it with you everywhere, to the gym, in your car, to your office. Start by adding water to your daily regiment, during the first week, and then incorporate more as needed. The point is not to wait until you’re thirsty to drink.

Keep water flowing before, during and after workout. Don’t forget to balance your water intake with sodium intake. Drink at least 1 liter of water for every 60 minutes of exercise. Drink more if it’s hot. During exercise, such as playing sport on a hot summer day, you can lose up to 2 liters per hour of fluid per hour. Water and a balance salt is your best bet to keep healthy and hydrated. During exercise, it is recommended to replenish fluid at least every 20 minutes.

Water prevents and helps to cure heartburn.
Heartburn is 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.

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.

Water prevents and helps to cure arthritis.
Rheumatoid joint pain - arthritis - is 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 and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.

Water prevents and helps to cure back pain.
Low back pain and ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs - the water 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.

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.

Water prevents and helps to cure angina.
Heart pain - angina - is 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 is angina's cure.

Water prevents and helps to cure migraines.
Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eye sight.
Water prevents and helps to cure 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 the last drop of water from the excrements - thus the lack of water lubrication.

Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation. Later in life, it will cause fecal impacting: it can cause diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and rectum.

Water and salt prevent and helps to cure asthma.
Asthma, which also affects 14 million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management programs of the body. In asthma 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. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the air sacs.

Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in the body of a growing child not only will sentence many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the remaining 14 million asthmatic children.

Water prevents and helps to cure 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 that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of the mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the blood 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 and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to normal!

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 disease. It will cause brain damage and neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.

Water prevents and helps to cure early 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 and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.

Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes as a complication of dehydration will, in time, cause massive damage to the blood vessels all over the body. It will cause eventual loss of the toes, feet and legs from gangrene. It will cause eye damage, even blindness.

Water lowers 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 against 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.


"It Is Unintentional Chronic Dehydration That Causes Pain and Disease, Including Cancer In The Body. This information had been methodically and fraudulently concealed until now!" F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. (see full articles at WaterCure.com)

PS from FactorReady.com : Who knew that water had so many health attributes in addition to dehydration? Dr. F. Batmaghelidj wrote his first self-help book “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water” in 1992, in which he stated that a dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of dehydration. He determined the body signals its water shortage by producing pain. He maintains that Dehydration actually produces pain and many degenerative diseases, including asthma, arthritis, hypertension, angina, adult-onset diabetes, lupus and multiple sclerosis. Dr. B’s message to the world is, “You are not sick, you are thirsty. Don’t treat thirst with medication.” He is an internationally renowned researcher, author, medical doctor and advocate of the natural healing power of water. His web site is at WaterCure.com. Dehydration often reduces skin elasticity, so doctors often use a skin test to quickly check for dehydration. Pinch the skin on the back of your hand and pull it upwards. Your skin should snap back rapidly. If your skin maintains it’s pinched shape for a few seconds and drops slowly, you may be dehydrated.

Special Note: It is the opinion of many knowledgeable health proponents as verified by various studies, that modern water technology such as hydrogen H2 enriched water and/or alkaline ionizers can greatly magnify the broad health and healing ability of clean water. Over 700 studies now exist on the structured water as example (visit SynergyScience.com). Mike Adams "The Health Ranger" says of the Synergy Science units, such as the Echo H2, "The Echo® Elemonics™ Hydrogen Infusion Machines bring all the benefits of hydrogen therapy and crisp, filtered water to your countertop." As for consumption of other liquids, such as Coffee and Tea, drinkers should limit their consumption to organic blends and Matcha type teas. We personally like the Canadian Kicking Horse coffee from amazon for the good taste factor in a USDA Organic choice.  Please Stay Well, Stay Prepared and Stay Prayed Up! ...Joe Lanier, PhD (Past Having Doubts :-) and Ham Radio call sign KE5NYS at Factoready.com in Jasper, Texas...
