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,

I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED YOUR WILKES-BARRE SEMINAR AND COMMENTED TO MY FRIEND THAT IT WAS THE MOST INTERESTING EVENING I HAD EXPERIENCED IN A LONG TIME. DURING THE QUESTION AND ANSWER PERIOD, I EXPLAINED TO YOU MY EXPERIENCE WITH A KNEE INJURY, BUT WITH THIS LETTER, I HOPE TO BRING MORE DETAIL AND MY REASONING IN THE MATTER.
ON OCTOBER 7, 1993, WHILE RUNNING PLAYING TENNIS, I INJURED MY LEFT KNEE. I HEARD A POP AND A SQUISH AND COULD NO LONGER BEND THE KNEE. FORTUNATELY, I DID NOT FALL TO THE GROUND, I WAS ABLE TO HANG ONTO THE NET BETWEEN THE COURTS. BECAUSE OF THE PAIN, I LABORIOUSLY HOBBLED TO MY CAR AND DROVE TO MY CHIROPRACTOR'S THINKING HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP. HE WORKED ON THE KNEE FOR MORE THAN AN HOUR WITH ULTRASOUND AND I STILL FELT NO IMPROVEMENT. ONCE AGAIN, IT WAS EXCRUCIATING TO GET IN AND OUT OF MY CAR, BUT I DID MANAGE AND FINALLY ARRIVED HOME AT ABOUT 8:30 THAT EVENING. I HOBBLED UP TO BED AND TOOK EXCEDRIN FOR THE PAIN AND TRIED TO SLEEP WITHOUT GREAT SUCCESS. THE NEXT MORNING IT WAS EVEN MORE PAINFUL SO MY HUSBAND DROVE ME TO THE KNEE CENTER IN WILKES BARRE FOR AN EXAMINATION AND WHAT WE THOUGHT WOULD BE ARTHROSCOPIC SURGERY. DR. COOPER REFERRED ME TO THE MRI CENTER FOR DIAGNOSIS AND THEY REPORTED THAT I HAD A BUCKET HANDLE TEAR OF THE LATERAL MENISCUS. DR. COOPER SUGGESTED THAT SURGERY SHOULD BE A LAST RESORT BECAUSE OF THE DIVERSITY OF COMPLICATIONS POSSIBLE. HE SUGGESTED THAT I STAY OFF MY FEET AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE (I AM A WALKER AND WALK 3 AND A HALF MILES A DAY) BUT I COULD GO TO WORK AND DO LIGHT THINGS AROUND THE HOUSE. AS LONG AS I KEPT THE LEFT KNEE STRAIGHT, I DIDN'T EXPERIENCE INTENSE PAIN, BUT I LIMPED FOR MONTHS. I WENT UP AND DOWN STAIRS ONE STEP AT A TIME FOR MONTHS. I RETURNED TO LIMITED TENNIS PLAYING ABOUT THREE MONTHS LATER BUT WAS UNABLE TO RUN. AFTER PLAYING TENNIS, I HAD TO WRAP MY KNEE IN AN ICE WRAP FOR A HALF HOUR BECAUSE OF THE PAIN. THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED TWO WEEKS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY W141CH HELPED SOME. AFTER ABOUT FOUR MORE MONTHS, I BEGAN TO GET THE COURAGE TO TRY RUNNING DURING TENNIS. I COULD DO MOST ACTIVITIES, BUT FREQUENTLY WHEN I RAN I WOULD GET A SHARP PAIN AT THE SIDE OF MY KNEE. THANK GOD THE BODY KNOWS INSTINCTIVELY HOW TO HELP ITSELF, AND IF I WOULD RAISE MY LEFT FOOT UP TO MY KNEE FOUR OR FIVE TIMES, THE PAIN WOULD GO AWAY. AT THAT POINT, I FELT FORTUNATE THAT I HAD FOUND SOMETHING TO EASE WHAT I FELT WOULD BE CHRONIC KNEE PAIN.
MY INSTINCTIVE THERAPY CONTINUED FOR ALL OF 1994 AND IN JANUARY OF 1995, 1 READ AN ARTICLE IN THE METRO ABOUT THE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS OF WATER. I PURCHASED "YOUR BODY'S MANY CRIES FOR WATER" AND IT MADE SENSE TO ME. ON PAGE 45 YOU SHOW A WELL-HYDRATED AND DEHYDRATED JOINT COMPARISON. AND EVEN THOUGH I WAS DRINKING CLOSE TO TWO QUARTS OF WATER A DAY, I REASONED THAT MY KNEE PAIN WAS PROBABLY CAUSED BECAUSE THE KNEE CARTILAGE WAS NOT SUFFICIENTLY HYDRATED BECAUSE IT WAS THINNER AND SOMEWHAT BRITTLE, IT HAD A TENDENCY TO GET CAUGHT BETWEEN THE BONES DURING CERTAIN KNEE MOTIONS. IT WAS AT THAT TIME THAT I DECIDED TO INCREASE MY WATER INTAKE TO THREE QUARTS A DAY.
AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS OF THE INCREASED WATER INTAKE, I WAS ABLE TO RUN AGAIN. I CAN EVEN DO SQUATS WITHOUT ANY PAIN. AND IT'S WONDERFUL TO PLAY A VIGOROUS GAME OF TENNIS WITH NO FEAR OF PAIN THANKS ONLY TO YOUR WATER CURE.
SOME TIME AFTER THAT, I SAW A HEALTH ARTICLE IN THE NEWSPAPER ABOUT A MENISCUS REPAIR TECHNIQUE. IT WAS AN EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE KNOWN AS MENISCAL REGENERATION WHICH REPLACED THE DAMAGED CARTILAGE WITH A COLLAGEN-BASED "SCAFFOLD". THIS ARTIFICIAL MENISCUS IS SLOWLY REPLACED BY NATURAL TISSUE AS THE BODY ABSORBS IT. WHEN I SAW THAT ARTICLE, I TRIED TO PHONE MY PHYSICAL THERAPIST THINKING THIS WOULD BE VALUABLE INFORMATION FOR HIM TO PASS ON TO HIS PATIENTS. I WAS TOLD THAT HE NO LONGER WORKED FOR THE HOSPITAL SO I EXPLAINED TO ANOTHER THERAPIST THAT I HAD LITERALLY CREATED MY OWN SCAFFOLDING AND HEALED MY BUCKET HANDLE TEAR OF THE LATERAL MENISCUS BY DRINKING WATER AND SUFFICIENTLY HYDRATING MY TORN MENISCUS.
I LEFT MY NAME AND PHONE NUMBER SO THE HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT COULD PHONE ME FOR SUBSTANTIATING DOCUMENTS BUT NO ONE FROM THAT HOSPITAL WAS INTERESTED IN YOUR WATER CURE. I VERY MUCH BELIEVE THAT WATER, PROPER NUTRITION, EXERCISE FRESH AIR, A POSITIVE ALTRUISTIC ATTITUDE, AND THE NUTRIENT OF NATURAL DAYLIGHT AND SUNLIGHT ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE THERAPIES FOR GOOD HEALTH AND BEST OF ALL, THEY'RE ALL FREE. AND THE ONLY SIDE EFFECTS ARE A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT AND WELL BEING.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. I HOPE THIS LETTER WILL BE HELPFUL TO OTHERS.
