I have been reading some interesting information lately pertaining to health. As you may have read, (see blogpost here & here) Country Guy & I decided to try Plexus for a few weeks because of the amazing testimony of a friend. Well, it has been almost 4 months. We don't feel we have seen enough changes to justify the expense. I think we have more energy, but until we started eating no white flour or sugar a couple of weeks ago, Country Guy's sugar was still high. We didn't lose weight (part of that can be attributable to eating through Thanksgiving & Christmas--where we didn't gain weight) even though that is not why we began the experiment. One of the directions Plexus gives is to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water. We weren't very consistent in this but tried to drink more than we had been drinking.
Anyway, I happened to come across thewatercure.com website where I read much about how dehydrated our population is, not only because we don't drink enough fluids, but also because we drink the wrong kinds of fluids which actually deplete our body of water. They also suggested drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water. That got me to thinking about those who had such great results using Plexus and wondering if the results were mainly attributable to drinking much water.
I was discussing this with a friend who said she had repeated sinus infections until a doctor told her to drink as much water as she could during the day (1 gallon) and that totally rid her of the problem.
Then I was reading about the importance of oxygen in our cells and how oxygen actually kills cancer cells when they are exposed to it. Is that why the water cure works, I wonder, since water is made up of oxygen? One article said that cancer cells can reproduce without oxygen through fermentation which is fueled by sugar (so obviously another reason to cut sugar intake).
So, as I was saying, I have read some really interesting material about oxygen deprivation and the water cure. On the water cure website they mention several books by Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj but one that I decided to look up on Amazon.com entitled Your Body's Many Cries For Water had excellent reviews and some remarkable testimonies. I checked with abebooks.com --my favorite go to site for used books--to see if I could get it used. It is available for $3.48 so I ordered a copy.
What I'm thinking is, "What can it hurt?" Water is free. What if it really is the reason so many people are sick? I feel certain there is much truth in the premise. I know most people are water deficient. In our busy world it is difficult to drink many glasses of water, not only because we are running here & there, but because we don't want to be looking for a bathroom all the time in our travels.
Why not try it and see? I would love to hear of your results so let me know by email or in the comments below so others can benefit.
