This is JoeD' Rushing and I have spoken to you before.. I wanted to let you know that there has been a new discovery in the cause and cure of MS! It is called ccsvi and is a blood flow problem to and from the brain that causes iron deposits in the brain and a immuno response that causes the lesions.. Angioplasty is now being performed at unheard of rates and is absolutely changing peoples lives.. I wanted to get you the information because I questioned why the watercure helped me and so many people.. ccsvi is a narrowing or constriction of the arterial vessels in the neck, chest or spine.. decreased blood flow is the whole problem! The watercre helped me so much because it "thinned or diluted" if you will the blood and increased blood flow through the "restrictions"! Thank you so much for the info and giving me the knowledge to gain the ability to slow this "disease"!! Now that there is a definite cause and cure for MS its good to know that the watercure prolonged me so I did not get to a debilitating stage before I could have my ccsvi procedure done! You guys ROCK!

They said continue to do what your doing because your current mri looks better than the 2006 mri.. I said so my lesions are shrinking? She said actually Mr. Rushing everyone of your lesions is GONE!!!!! No more MS!!!! I guess Dr. Batmanghelidj's theory of died up brain matter due to dehydration was correct because as far as the doctors are concerned the plaques once there are permanent! BS!!! Thank you again!

To: Bob Butts (

Bob I have spoken to you and others using the Water cure for MS. When I was diagnosed at 29 with MS I was willing to try anything. I will tell you that it absolutely does work!! I had numbness, tingling, muscle twitching, vision problems and when I would get up to walk after several hours of down time my left leg did not work so well. After starting a better nutrition program (mainly no fried foods), Taking my vitamins religiously (morning, noon and night) and starting the salt water program I am doing wonderfully! No numbness, no tingling, no vision problems, 90% less twitching and no funny walk! I know this works because of my results and because EVERYONE says I look 100X better, I lost weight and I am completely full of energy! I know others with MS who either won't try new things such as the salt water cure or try it for about a month to 3 months and expect miracles! I will tell you it took 1-1/2 to 2 years for me to get the complete results I have achieved. It did not come overnight! Also I had to be fanatical about it and stay with it, remember to do these things and push myself to keep up with it but it has all been worth it! Please let people like David and others know who either are skeptical or are saying they are not getting results to stick with it and watch what happens! Whats the worse that could happen- 1. Eat better and you'll look and feel better. 2. take high quality supplements and look and feel better 3. Drink your daily amount of salt water and Guess what- you'll look and feel better!!! Continue to do this day in and day out and it will amazingly change your life, reverse disease, clear your head and make your quality of life better. Regardless of whether your suffering now because of disease, stress, etc.. I promise this will make you feel, look and act so much better!! And remember it doesn't happen overnight- It may take months or even years to achieve your desired goals but whats most important is that it works and slowly but surely changes you for the better!

Fantastic! Can we put your story on the testimonial page? I don't understand why it took so long for you to get well though. Read the recipe on our site again and see if you were making any mistakes. HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH, YOUR CAFFEINE, ALCOHOL, WATER AND SALT CONSUMPTION. We are seeing many nurses who are amazed with how fast people with MS are getting well. BOB

Absolutely you can use my letter on your testimonial page. I currently weigh 175 lbs. (Down from 195 lbs.), I drink 0% caffeine and haven't for a long while now, I still drink alcohol but am currently making that a downhill spiral (In other words I need to either stop the alcohol or be more sparing) and I drink 2 to 2-1/2 bottles of water each day. Each bottle is 33 ounces and I add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of celtic sea salt to each bottle. I am going to up my intake of water though to more soon. You would not believe the amount of people that call me and about "that sea salt thingy" and how it works. I tell everyone what to do, how it helped me and to go to the website. It has been fun to hear peoples responses! Most people blow me off when I tell them this or tell me their doctor said they cannot have the salt. Funny my doctor encouraged it, thought it was "smart" since I drink R/O water so I am replacing the minerals stripped from the water and that most people are not "salt sensitive" and in his opinion doctors putting people on "low sodium" diets does more harm than good! Loved to hear that! Anyways appreciate all the info on your site and look forward to more success stories!

Dear Bob, I have been in touch with Jim Bolen since I discovered the watercure site 3 months ago.

I have joined your crusade in a real way and I am helping people in my country with every information I can master. Jim is sending me the CDs and books about water cure by Dr.B. My country Papua New Guinea is one of the least developed country's in the South Pacific just north of Australia. As such internet development here is still way behind. The telephone cables here are still yet to be developed to world fast standard to give us quality online videos. They are simply very very slow to dead. So the only way would be to order the CDs, videos and books from your end. As much as I have gleaned from the website I am using the information to carry forward the water crusade where I am.

I myself have been suffering from suspected multiple sclerosis and since I have been on water and salt over the last three months my condition is clearly improving. The tingling, numbness, balance and dizziness and weakness have all improved greatly. People that saw me looking sick for the last 18 months are noticing my improved condition. And I tell them water is the answer-take water for live and for healing. I have joined your crusade. Whatever you and Jim can assit to help me spread this good news here and abroad I will greatly appreciate. I am looking to making it a full time work if I can.

Thank You for now and God bless

Hi Bob,
I appreciate the interest as it means a lot to me.
I am totally a water cure believer who is still In-Progress.
7/15/07 Official start date
9/11/07 Rediscovered Great exercise endurance thru planned diet - Significant Result !
9/13/07 Repeated this !! Repeated this again and again until today!
Plan to continue this forever.

I have been realizing tremendous results by eating two raw potatoes every day. No
more eczema- my skin is beautiful like I've never seen before! If I stop the potatoes
problems come back.

The recommended vitamins and supplements also have great results. My eyes are much whiter than before. I have strength, endurance and alertness like years ago before ms.

I feel great. I've also been looking for a job and hope to go back to work in January.

All great news but I'm still using a power chair and a walker at home.

Firstly water,
Secondly exercise
Thirdly vitamins etc.

Just sticking to the program and very happy with the health it has given me so far !
Expecting continued results,

David said the water cure did not work for his Primary Progressive MS. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? If so, please email Bob Butts .

Bob, I came across a woman named Betty Iams that has primary progressive ms, she has done remarkably well with her protocol. I told her about the water cure program and she said it will not work at all. Perhaps you should seriously think about putting a disclaimer on your site that it will not help people with primary progressive ms, this would help a lot of people like myself not get so caught up and committed to something only to find it wont work, I not only say that by reading her statement but more from the fact that I have been doing this over 3 months and have not noticed one bit of improvement, in fact my walking, stiffness and balance are worse. I know you believe in the water and salt cure and perhaps it will help with some ailments,? but when your dealing with pp ms water and salt will not do anything, I say this with deep regret and disappointment, I was so hoping this would work. I am crushed. There is nothing I am missing, I am doing everything stated to the 10th power to even say I am missing something tells me you are stumped, don't take it personally, ms stumps everyone, bottom line water and salt will not cure or alleviate symptoms of pp ms. I wish you could prove me wrong sadly you can not, you may say just stick with it which I will, but when do we say enough is enough it aint going to work ? The water and salt program for pp ms gets a grade of F, If it worked I would have touted it to the world, please do not say I am negative that is so not the case. I challenge you to prove me wrong, If water and salt etc could cure or alleviate my ms symptoms and make me walk freely again, I would send you money, if it worked you could just name your price and I would gladly pay. I know you are not in it for the money, you give people money, you are a rare individual and a good person, Just let people know it wont help people with pp ms. Sincerely David B. Lekis

Note: "Daily requirements to build up your immune system against MS."  Dr. F. Batmanghelidj. Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, 100 mg B-6, 1000 mcg B-12, 1 capsule flaxseed oil, 3 capsules fish oil, 2 glasses carrot juice - preferably fresh (add juiced apple to improve taste), 2 eggs, 1 banana or glass of orange juice, zinc, and magnesium. No fried foods.

A Scranton, PA. attorney called me back in February of 2004 to talk to me about curing his M.S.  A medical doctor friend of his, Lang Pao Su, staff member of Mid Valley Hospital of Peckville, Pa., told him to call me for help as he was aware of many people being helped with the Water Cure, including his own patients.  He said that he only had 1about 10% vision in one eye and had difficulty walking up and down steps.  I told him that by following the Water Cure program, his vision would most likely be fine within two weeks and all other symptoms would are usually gone in 30 to 60 days.  I also told him that, in my opinion,  M.S. should stand for monumentally stupid because medical science is so ignorant they arenít even aware that virtually every person with M.S. is severely dehydrated and therefore will have a very high acid condition in their bodies.  Water and high mineral sea salt will usually quickly restore the proper pH to about 7.3 and the symptoms start to disappear.  As of May 8, 2004 he is 95% free of all symptoms.

I write this note to those of you who also suffer from MS who also find themselves about to give up hope. After well over ten years since my diagnosis I felt that my life had ended too early and that I was being punished for some unknown prior wrong. My life was apparently over--my career over, my marriage ended in an ugly divorce, my children the product of a broken home.

After ten days following the water cure I can't believe it. My advice to those who are new in following the water cure is to be patient! Jim Bolens' knows his stuff-he's sharp as a tack and has ample experience. Do what he recommends. It took your body years to break down, can't you give him a few weeks? It's hard to believe that such a simple prescription for improved health would work, but it has so far!

My name is Frank Tippett.

I have MS. I was diagnosed in April of 2000. The MRI's showed the myelin sheath missing and plaque on the brain. My neurologist checked my medical history and said the first time the entire right side of my body went numb and tingly (18 years ago) was the beginning of my MS.

The first time I had an attack the doctor did all types of tests. He took a spinal fluid sample for testing, however, the hospital lost it. The numbness and tingling never completely stopped, I just learned to live with it.

I was out of work for six months at that time. I went twelve years before I had another attack; this time the upper half of my body was affected. This time the doctor did the MRI's and nothing showed up in the neck or brain.

I went through a series of nerve conductive tests over the next two years. Nothing showed up from these tests. I had another attack in April 2000 and this time the MRI's showed the MS in the neck and brain.

I had numbness, tingling, pain, slurred speech, lost control of my right arm, walking and balance problems, bodily functions slowed down and I was constantly tired.

The doctor put me on Avonex. The Avonex would only help for three days out of the week. It started working longer when I started the water and sea salt.

I also take cold pressed flax seed oil, B Complex, lecithin and a good one-a-day vitamin and potassium.

Two and a half months after I started the water cure the numbness and tingling were gone and in the following months my walking and balance improved, my bodily functions returned to normal.

In December 2001 I returned to the neurologist and told him I was going off the Avonex and using just the water cure.

I told him just what you had to take along with no alcohol or caffeine and he told me it was a good idea because caffeine causes certain neurological functions to cease in the brain.

He conducted all the tests for MS and said I was in excellent health.

In June of this year my family doctor is going to re-do the MRI's to see if my MS is really gone.

As an added bonus, I had an enlarged prostate for seven years. My family doctor checked it my last visit and said it was normal. He did blood work to make sure and everything came back normal. I feel to deal with the effects of MS you need a positive attitude, an open mind and a willingness to try other treatments, like the water cure.

I haven't felt this good in twenty years, thanks to Dr. Batmanghelidj and Bob Butts.

Hi. My name is Jackie Saxton. I have Multiple Sclerosis. I have been using the watercure about a month now. All I can say is that I have discovered a miracle. Prior to starting to use this simple plan I had chronic muscle spasms that were very, very, very painful. I have tried a number of things including physical therapy, muscle stimulators, pain medication and etc. All just gave temporary relief and only hurt my pocketbook. I believe my eyesight and balance have improved and I know my pain and fatigue have been alleviated 95%!

I would like to thank Dr. B. from the bottom of my heart for discovering and sharing this free medicine.!!! I have been able to stop all RX medication! Yeah!!!

Thank you so much for the advice you gave my boyfriend Bob a month ago. As you'll recall, Bob had lost his sight because of multiple sclerosis. I was very scared of the situation and that is why we called for your advice. He did what you suggested and included the carrot juice, vitamin B & E along with the Water Cure, and it WORKED! He gained his eye sight back at 20/40. The doctor at the eye institute could not believe that Bob's sight came back. 

Thank you for your help!

I am a person with M.S. I have been using Dr. Batmanghelidj's greatest health discovery in history program (drink 2qts. of water daily, no caffeine and adding some salt as seasoning) for four weeks. I can confidently state that I am thrilled with the incredible results. 

Previously, I had been plagued by bad swelling of my legs for years. Within two weeks the swelling had gone down 90 percent. As an M.S. client, I am also grateful to be free of my caffeine and sugar roller coaster that I was on. I am excited about my increased and consistent energy which lasts all day and into the evening. I am without the downside of exhaustion which followed the caffeine bursts. I was chained to that roller coaster which only made my fatigue spells during the day so much more severe. 

Now that I am free from that cycle, I also notice that I am calmer, less anxious and more productive. Also, I am more optimistic about things in general, more able to give of myself to others and more attentive to the natural rhythms of my body that I previously masked chemically by caffeine. 

Truly Dr. Batmanghelidj's discovery has given me back a large portion of my life. I would be more than happy to speak with anyone who has an interest in what I have found out.

Bob Butts interview with Bob VanLuvanee,  sufferer of MS for seven years.

I have had MS since 1989. I had periods of partial paralysis and uncomfortable muscle tremors. Until I came down with MS I never drank water, I lived on coffee, now I drink no coffee and water is my main drink. My girlfriend told me about the water cure since 1995, and I thought it was ridiculous.     

In April of 1996 I went blind in one eye due to MS. I had no energy and just wanted to sleep. I was on the water cure for a week and a half when I noticed changes. By the end of three weeks my eyesight came back and all other symptoms disappeared and I was filled with an incredible energy that I never had before. My doctor could not believe I got my sight back that fast. He never had that happen before. My doctor didnít even question me as to how I got better. 

My message for other MS sufferers: Try the water cure and donít give up.

As of 3-18-04, all symptoms are still gone!        

Interviewers Note: Success in treating M.S. of people who are ambulatory shows great promise. We had two people who became totally free of all symptoms within three weeks and another became 90% symptom free in two weeks. As for people who are already wheelchair bound we have seen improvements in muscle tone, acuteness, and a much better sense of well being. It is Dr. Batmanghelidjís belief that water and salt will prevent M.S. and the lack of them is the cause.

To: The Editor

I've had M.S. for about 5 years. My symptoms included being confined to bed for a month, retaining fluid so badly that I couldn't walk & I weighed 175 lbs. Being short, it really showed up on me. I could hardly talk as well. I didn't know what was wrong with me at the time. My husband was concerned and didn't know what to do for me or with me. Another problem was that I had a chronic bladder condition.  

I have been to numerous Drs. and hospitals in Canada, New York City and Pennsylvania. I've had every test that has been written or given to find out what the problem was with my bowels and bladder. I was told that it was a condition that I had to learn to live with and would end up with a colostomy. 

I am an LPN and I've been a nurse for 44 years. I've taken all kinds of medications prescribed for me thinking they would help. 

I was diagnosed for sure with M.S. at Geisinger in Danville last March. They said that I have had M.S. for about 5 years. This last year it got to be severe. I wasn't really following the Water Cure until it got very severe. 

My husband tried it and lost 40 Ibs. in a month. Even his disposition and nervousness improved.         

All the medicine that I was taking, I stopped taking. I had seen such an improvements in my intellect, memory, coordination, breathing, upper respiratory problems were gone as well. My bowel and bladder were stagnated, but they now are starting to function the way they should. I hadn't seen my doctor for a couple of months. When I walked in, he couldn't believe what he saw. "YOU LOOK WONDERFUL", is what he said to me. He asked what I was doing. I told him that I'm on Dr. Batmanghelidj's Water Cure, the water & salt cure! He asked what that was all about. I told him that everyone needs to drink two (2) quarts of water daily and add 1/2 tsp. of salt as seasoning on his food. He said evidently it does work because he could see the results in me and he said , Marilyn, you have never been in better health. He thinks it is the greatest thing that he has ever heard. His name is Dr. John Carey. He has an office here in Kingston and another in Dallas. He even tried it himself and has now lost a lot of weight thanks to the Water Cure. He said that this therapy is so simple and unique that it has to get out to the people. He has always been the type of doctor who believes in helping the individual patient and whatever is good for the patient, it doesn't matter where it comes from. If it's good for them, he wants them to have it. 

Something tragic had to happen like Dr. Batmangliclidj being in the prison being slated to be shot to make this discovery. I had to get M.S. to be able to do what I am doing today which is telling everyone about it. In the Bible, you see salt & water, salt & water, salt & water. If we would all cat & drink & do the things like Jesus did when he was on this earth, and we all know He drank water and we all know that He must have eaten salt. We are the salt of the earth. And if it is good enough for Him, it's got to be good enough for us. This has SAVED MY LIFE! You have my permission to share this letter with any one you want.

As of 4/6/99, my health is still great!

This is the 5th report of a person losing all symptoms of M.S. after going on the WATER CURE. All were ambulatory. Bob Butts
