Hives Testimonials
Here you will find radio spots that might reference your illness.

This testimonial is contained in the Forward of the book "Goof Proof Health. The book is an easy and informative 20 page read that is beneficial to those interested in maintaining or attaining good health naturally.

Is it worth being sick? Isn't prevention better than cure? I learned the hard way. Doctor after doctor could not find what was wrong with me after having one miscarriage and two stillbirths.

The doctors finally said I had lupus, it didn't add up because the blood tests were not conclusive. They gave me prednisone and heparin for the third pregnancy. I had a stillbirth at six and a half months anyway. I was frustrated not knowing where to turn. I prayed that GOD would show me the answer before I tried again; I was determined not to give up.

When I thought it could not get any worse, it did. I got hives all over my body. I was ashamed to go outside. The doctor gave me steroids which worked for a day or two and then got worse. Searching the internet for answers; I came across the Water cure. Desparate, I saw how sea salt and water were so powerful. I was a little skeptic at first, but I decided to try some of the salt in my cupboard with some water.

I was in shock because within two hours all the hives disappeared. I didn't take any medications. I knew I had to get in touch with someone from this website. I emailed and Jim Bolen responded. I was still skeptical but I remembered what the salt had done for me so I decided to give it a try.

After learning about the WaterCure; I felt blessed with a second chance and I started "cleaning house" in my own body, using sound nutrition to undo all the mistakes I had made in my twenties and early thirties. The knowledge of how my body truly works gave me the power to control how I looked and felt; which brought with it inner peace and confidence. More than the physical effect I felt a spiritual change come over me.

Several months after starting on this program I became slightly ill. To my surprise I found out I was pregnant again. Jim suggested I pray and I did. I knew GOD wanted me to continue on this program and have faith.

My ob-gyn did an ultra sound and to my shock and pleasant surprise he said it was twins. I said GOD is giving me two when I wasn't able to successfully carry one. I will do my part and Jim will do his part.

I had experienced edema in my early pregnancies. But this pregnancy, I had no swelling of the feet, no high blood pressure, no abnormal blood tests. The doctors and nurses marveled at how someone with twins had no high blood

Pressure, no edema, no gestational diabetes, etc. I just gave them a smirk as if I didn't know what was causing this. In my 37th week of pregnancy I gave birth to two bouncing WaterCure babies, my miracle children.

My second short story is my sister who was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Her blood sugar upon diagnosis was so high the meter couldn't read it. In seven weeks following the suggested program, her blood sugar was back to normal and I didn't need to give her any insulin injections. She is not fully on the program now because she refuses to exercise and take the salt and supplements and her insulin requirement is back.

This lifestyle has proven successful for me and my family for over two years now, keeping us healthy, energetic, and satisfied. I never knew self-healing was possible. But thanks to GOD and his vessel, Jim Bolen he used to spread his message of healing.

Mr. Butts,

This e-mail address was on a website about water and salt intake. I hope it is still valid.

In 1994 I began to have chronic hives. A few years ago, I dealt with some emotional issues, and the hives went away.

I have begun having histamine issues again... including migraine headaches and water retention, and as I prayed about it, I believe the Lord showed me that salt is a problem for me.

Every time I have been given an IV, I have retained fluid and swelled... every single time.

When I gave birth, I went home weighing more than I did than before I had my baby! The doctor said the water weight would come off on its own, and it did - very quickly.

Looking back, I can see that this has been a problem all my life because I always gain a ton of water weight on vacation. It's from eating all of those high salt foods at restaurants I guess.

So according to the water cure, I would just need to drink more water? How much would I need?

Thank you! Donna Johnson

You need to go on our water site. and listen to our CD Rescued From the Grave. Listen to the edema testimonial. You'll learn why drinking more water causes edema to go. People also need a lot of salt. Google JAMA Low Salt Diet raises heart death rate 500%

Okay, I'm sold. I had been having hives for two weeks. I drank 64 ounces of water yesterday, and I had no hives last night. Praise God!

I have been extremely thirsty even after all of that water yesterday and today. I tried a pinch of sea salt on my tongue (I had some way back in a cabinet I forgot I even had) tonight, and it really helped with the thirst.

What I can't find on your site is how much sea salt I should take in in a day. I'd rather put it on my tongue than put it in the water.

If you can point me in the right direction on how much salt to use, I sure would appreciate it.

Thank you!

On your tongue is best. Google Jama & CD low salt diet raises death rate 500%. They also suggest 2 to 4 tsp of salt for best health. That is more accurate that what Dr. originally said. I use 3/8 to 1'2 tsp of sea salt per 10 ounces of water.

Let me add to your testimonials. I have tried for years to find a way to get rid of my hives, which I have had for years on end. I have visited every type of doctor, from traditional to homeopathic to accupunture, and have nothing to be of help. I have tried fasts (drinking only water and apple juice) and they helped more than anything else ever had. After doing some food restriction diet tests, I determined foods weren't involved. So, about three weeks ago I decided that maybe the drinking during the fast was what made the difference. I drank approximately 16 cups (128 oz.) per day. My hives were gone within two days and if I keep up the water drinking, the hives are staying away. Water, baby! That's the thing! I was just introduced to your site today. Thanks!
