Hi Bob!

Hope you are well. Patty is always giving me literature to read about The Water Cure so I am familiar with the success stories you have from people with different medical conditions. While this is by no means a medical problem, I thought I would share with you anyhow. I find sometimes that I can’t even have a couple alcoholic beverages without getting a headache the next day. One night, I decide to have some wine when out with friends for dinner. Even though I kept myself hydrated with water during dinner and before bed, I still found myself waking up with a very persistent ‘hangover’ headache. Two glasses of red did it. There I lay  wondering just how a couple glasses could create such a throbbing in my head. I thought about Patty and The Water Cure. I decided to try something different this time…I mixed some sea salt I bought from Cee Kay with 16 ounces of water. While it wasn’t the best tasting morning beverage, I drank it all down. Repeated the process about 10 minutes later and wouldn’t you know within 30 minutes, my headache was gone and I was taking a walk on my treadmill. I felt great! Just wanted to let you know of another positive Water Cure story…the power of sea salt and my filtered water I guess J.

Talk to you soon,

Yvette M

Mr. Stoddard

I want to personally thank you for saving my life. There are very few good doctors with any integrity left. It is all about the money. I forgot if I got your website from Kevin Trudeau's Book or Bottom Line Health it does not really matter. It is only important that I found you. Two years ago, it seemed as though it happened over night but my symptoms were gradually becoming more noticeable over time, starting in my teens I thought it was just old age creeping up on me. First it started with knee injuries then my upper back and neck started really bothering me at 41 years of age. I had been in a car wreck 5 or 6 years prior to these symptoms I thought it was result of the wreck, sometimes this does not show up for several years. The headaches were miserable. Always in my neck , back of the head and top of the head. It seemed like I went for a solid year and had a headache everyday. I went to Orthopedic, Chiropractor, Neurosurgeon, and General Doctor. Had and MRI done that said I had a mild bulging disk in my neck C6, slight herniation at T3 and T4 and a mild herniation at T8,T9. T3 and T4 were off the midline.T6 was the worst of all as far as inflammation and being out of place the MRI said nothing about it but the chiropractor had to constantly pop it back in. You could see it on x-ray. I was going to a chiropractor 2 times a week some of the things the chiropractor told me made some sense. He told me to quit drinking coffee and cokes and drink water. He wanted me to start working out which I know a strong back does help. However none of these specialists really helped me very much. They really did not listen to what I was telling them as with most doctor's they are only treating symptoms and not getting to the rout cause and getting rich in the process. I kept telling them just the slightest of activity and my back would be out of place and my head was about to explode, I told my Chiropractor I would roll over in bed and jump out of place and that my neck was constantly popping and felt like I had grit in it. It felt like I was sleeping on a concrete pillow at night I could never get comfortable. I also told the neurosurgeon this he said he could bring a dozen 45 year old men off of the street and none of them would be any worse off than I was. I knew this was not normal I felt helpless. I tried several other natural remedies, CMO for one it did nothing , then I ordered your Biotape it did nothing however you sent me two packages of sea salt, I thought nothing of it and threw it on the counter it set there for three weeks. Then one day I decide to follow your instructions and start taking this with non-chlorinated water. Within 4 or 5 days I could tell a noticeable difference. Not only did it seem like my back was better but my energy level was out the roof, the headaches started getting less and with less severity. I not only started researching sea salt but other aliment remedies. All of the major aliments cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes are all tried together in my opinion. However when I started taking your sea salt I read an article on the web about 24 different things sea salt along with water were essential for. Three tipped me off as to what my problem was. One was slobbering all over your pillow at night, 27% of your bones are made of salt and a salt deficiency was the leading cause of osteoporosis, and salt deficiency would lead to irregular heart beats but would regulate high blood pressure. I had all of these symptoms. I was on the verge of serious health problems. I was severely dehydrated. Luckily I did not destroy my back during this period because I work extremely hard everyday. I have been taking sea salt for about 3 months I am almost completely healed it is amazing and so are you. Thank you so much. My mom had the worst case of arthritis I had ever seen she has past away. Neither my mom nor I ever ate much salt because doctors are constantly telling us it is bad for us and table salt may be. However I only wish I could have found you sooner I watched her suffer the last 15 years of her life and now I know the answer. My mother was a coca cola addict that may have been my biggest challenge if I could go back in time. I always told her I thought the cokes were a lot of her problem, then I had no research to back it up it was only a guess. I know now she was severely dehydrated. For me personally I will never drink soft drinks or coffee again maybe an occasional cup of decaf. It will only be non chlorinated water and a pinch of sea salt a couple time a day. If I had not received this miracle from you, I would either be insane or dead. The good Lord left us the answers we have just been brain washed by big medicine and all of these man made products that are killing us even the water out of our own taps. You and your associates are truly miracles from God. Godly people have integrity. *

Thank you so much,
Alan G. Burley

I also suffered from migraines for the last 11 years. They we're so bad that I was recently given Topamax. It seemed to help, however, I weaned myself off of it due to the side effects and the migraines began to reoccur. With the water cure protocol I may have to drink up to as much as three glasses of water but it halts the pain and I no longer need to take Midrin to get me through.

The list of little things goes on and on; Lessoning of hyperactivity in the boys, better focus during studies, better sleeping, no more bed-wetting! All of it is a wonderful blessing to our family.

Thank you for putting this out there. It's so simple it makes it hard to believe. My family is a testimony to the fact that it works.

Now, I'd like to ask if you've ever heard about this helping to restore taste or smell? My grandmother has been considering seeing an ENT for the problem. Drinking 1/2 a glass of water to take her medication once a day was difficult for her. She has been drinking coffee or tea most of her adult life. We now have her drinking up to four 10 ounce glasses a day, however, she needs much more than that. Still, I have noticed that we are having better/longer phone conversations. Her hearing is improving. She rarely asks me to repeat myself now and it's been just over a week since she began. She's had difficulty hearing for many years! Do you think the taste and smell will return also?

Thank you, Jim, for taking the time to promote this in a way that the average person can grasp. It just makes sense. All of my clients will be hearing about it and I know they will be blessed as well.

I found your website from altavista search on the words "cure a migraine headache quick."

I was suffering from a severe migraine. I took a darvocet tablet and a Zoloft tablet prescribed for my headaches. In the past I was prescribed a multi drug which contained barbiturates... can't remember the name. After reading the web site I immediately went and got the biggest glass of ice water I could make up. The headache was gone half way through drinking it... slowly that is to avoid the inevitable brain freeze.

Any way... you said e-mail if I would like to talk.

Well, ten years ago January I was in an auto accident where I received a broken neck and some other spinal damages. Now to this day I have back problems... mid back, shoulder area, muscles, and of course the neck, which cause the migraines.

I have been prescribed almost every drug in the book... some of them in the "n.s.a.i.d." and "s.a.i.d." families causing me to have bleeding ulcers where I have had twenty-two pints of blood transfused in the period of three years.

I have severe arthritic spurring and sub fusion in my neck., disintegrating discs, and a lot of pain to the point of pretty much ruining any luster in life, as I once enjoyed before.

Your web site says it is shared as Gods gift and this is wonderful as I am a devout Christian. 

Please tell me more. I'm going now to read on ulcers on your web site and other things as well. I will be saving every bit of text for review later off line and to share with my family and friends. 

I have been hearing a lot about water recently and in my medical studies over the past ten years have come to a side conclusion that dehydration is a factor in most hospital admittances, but the question is WHY?

Your answer to the diuretic functions of soda drinks and caffeinated beverages was my answer. These cause so many kinds of illnesses it is difficult to count. I believe that soft drinks are the number one cause of prostate problems in the world today. Perhaps any info on this from your studies would help.

I personally do not have this problem, but much of my family does, as well as bladder problems. I attribute it all to years of soft drinks and coffee.

My main concern is my spine. Any info you share would be a blessing. God bless you all and may your light shine in the public eye very soon. Take care.

For many years I suffered with headaches. I consulted doctors, neurologists, chiropractors and spent hundreds of dollars for head scans and x-rays, all to no avail. At times, only my faith in God kept me from wanting to die, as I lay prone in bed for days on end in pain. No medication would ever stop the pain. It would just seem to run its course and then stop. I could never make any connection between my diet and the headaches, and the only pattern they seemed to follow was to always start a couple of hours after a meal. Then one day a friend told me that he thought my headaches were caused because I never drank enough water. While I knew I didn't actually drink much water, I thought my herbal tea with fruit juices together with lots of fruits amply supplied my liquid requirements. 

Just three weeks later I was leafing through a health magazine when an advertisement for your book,  "Your Bodies Many Cries for Water," just seemed to leap out at my eyes. I bought the magazine and sent for the book. When it came, I eagerly read and re-read it to learn this new concept of water, and as I saw the errors in my drinking habits, I quickly set about to righting them. Can anyone, without experiencing it for themselves, really understand what it is like to have usually pain-filled days changed to wonderfully painless days when you can do the things you want to do, instead of being "down with a headache?" Oh, such a blessing for which I thank God continually. 

It has taken months to properly hydrate my body, but now a headache is a now-and-again event instead of the norm. I thank a loving and caring God for leading me step by step to this wonderful truth. He no doubt tried to lead me a lot earlier, but I was too blind to see. 

I thank you doctor for your great work and perseverance in bringing this truth to the people. I lecture to adults at night classes on 'Better Food and Eating Habits" and I quickly gave one of my sessions entirely to the body's need for water. I have been able to help many people to better health and much less pain in their lives with this knowledge. 

A friend told me he was going into the hospital in a few days time for stomach and ulcer treatment. I begged him to cancel this and try the water treatment you recommended. He somewhat reluctantly did and was amazed and thankful to find his pains stop and in time, to know that the ulcer had healed, all without medication. Please let me offer my grateful thanks again and pray that the Lord will bless and guide you and your staff as you work for the better health of humanity. Sincerely...
