Amazing Results With Salt Baths
I have personally seen my blood pressure drop to normal virtually every time in 5 to 15 minutes after being in a salt bath consisting of 2.5 cups (2 cups for our large tub, 1 cup is fine for a regular size tub) of salt (unprocessed sea salt is best, but even junk table salt is very helpful) and about 1/2 cup of baking soda. Keep the water temperature at 98.6 or lower so your body isn’t isn’t being stressed trying to maintain the proper temperature. My problem is that even though I drink a lot of water & use plenty of salt, there are times when I get dehydrated. Rather than drink enough salt & water, I started researching the salt baths and the results were amazing. This is great for people whose MD tells them not to use salt & you can bet he/she would have no problem if you swam in the salt water in the ocean. That’s why dehydrated people feel much better when they swim in the ocean. Incidentally, the salinity of the ocean and the water environment of a an unborn baby is exactly the same according to Dr. Batmanghelidj.
Why We Have Minerals In The Body
The Cause & Cure of HBP
Next to water, minerals are the backbone of cell physiology. Although they are represented in the blood to a lesser extent, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, chromium, copper, manganese, boron, vanadium, silicon, and some others maintain life inside the cells of the body. There are more of them inside the cells than there are in the blood. The first thing they do is osmotically hold on to water and regulate the plum-like volume and structure of the cells from inside. They also regulate the acid-alkaline balance inside the cell.
When these elements are adequately present in the cell interiors, they osmotically and naturally pull and keep water in the cell. When these elements are less than adequately available, the method of water delivery into the cells is by forced injection through “showerheads,” which are formed in the cell membrane to let only water in. To do this, added pressure-injection pressure-is needed.
Proportionate to the level of mineral deficiency in the cell interior, injection pressure is adjusted to do the work. At a certain level, the rise in injection pressure becomes significant and is called hypertension. Hypertension denotes mineral deficiency in the interior of the cells of the body-a state of general mineral deficiency. Once this deficiency is corrected, and in conjunction with adequate salt intake, the blood pressure becomes normal once again. The more functionally important intracellular minerals are: Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium.

Celery Lowers High Blood Pressure
The lowly celery stick doesn’t get much respect. Popular primarily as a low-calorie snack or cocktail garnish, celery actually has significant health benefits, including reducing blood pressure. Research at the University of Chicago Medical Center are credit with one of the first studies of celery’s effects on blood pressure, which was prompted when the father of one of the scientists noted a drop in his blood pressure from 158/96 to 118/82 after eating ¼ pounds of celery (about four stalks) daily for just one week.
Studies show that celery’s blood-pressure-lowering effects are due to a compound called 3-n-butyl-phthalide, which can reduce blood pressure by an average of 12 -14 percent. According to researchers, phthalide relaxes the arterial muscles that regulate blood pressure, allowing the vessels to dilate. Phthalide also reduces blood levels of stress hormones that can raise blood pressure by causing vessels to constrict. If you have high blood pressure and want to give celery a try, eat four to five stalks a day for a week and observe the effects. But don’t overdo it.
While the watercure has tremendous results with high blood pressure; it is not always the answer. If it doesn’t deliver the expected results, follow the exercise and good diet suggestions such as mentioned on curezone.com and mercola.com.
The following are also very helpful in lowering blood pressure: 600 mg of garlic and 500 mg of Vitamin “C” daily. Cayenne pepper and blueberries are also very, very helpful. Visit www.curezone.com and click on foods at top of site and learn the foods that deliver the best health and those that kill. Search hypertension prevention & curing protocol. It appears under “Home remedies.”
While it is well known or should be well known that most HBP is a symptom of dehydration because once a person is dehydrated, water will be extracted from the blood to fulfill the other needs of the body, there is a complicating factor which is that some food is toxic to us. I found that out and got muscle tested and eliminated a number of foods like raisins, macadamia nuts, pistachios, almond butter, garlic, chocolate, pretzels and grains. When I took in those foods, sometime my BP went up along with my heart rate. By avoiding them, I had little problem. Usually people get rid of food allergies by correcting the dehydration, but that did not work for me, although any time my BP does go up, I’ll always drink some salt water which often brings it down, but for the times it doesn’t all I do is get in a Jacuzzzi tub with one cup of unprocessed sea salt and a cup of Epsom salts. In about 15 minutes my BP returns to normal. Try it and let me know how it works for you.

I started using salt water about 3 months ago and have taken blood pressure medication for about 10 years now. NOTHING has brought my blood pressure into the low normal range, UNTIL I started using the sea salt. I’m soooo amazed and I must tell you, I was a LOT skeptical at the beginning.

I have been using water and sea salt for over two months now. My high blood pressure is back to normal and even lower. My lifelong headaches are gone. My backache is gone and my energy is up. The huge bulging varicose veins on the backs of my legs are 100 percent gone on one leg and 50 percent gone on the other. Will they totally go away in time? I am 58 years old and have had typical “aging” prostate for years – difficult nighttime urination. There is no change in that yet. Will it eventually improve? Also, I drink two to three times the amount of water indicated by body weight – am I supposed to increase my salt intake to match it? Thanks so much. This has helped me more than anything, health wise, that I have ever tried.

That’s wonderful! I see no reason why your prostate shouldn’t get better. That is certainly a lot of water. I hope you are taking the ¼ teaspoon of high mineral sea salt with each quart. Keep us updated on your success.

Here is my review of the book ‘Your Body’s Many Cries For Water’ as it will appear on the amazon.com website.
Your Body’s Many Cries for Water
by Fereydoon Batmanghelidj
My Body Was Crying!
Reviewer: Michelle Bartels
I couldn’t wait to get this book and read it after I learned about it. It is a WONDERFUL book. If I could afford it, I would buy this book for everyone I love. I wouldn’t dream of lending it out, but it seems I am telling everyone I know about it, and making some people sit while I read to them.
It is true, how we all seem to get on ‘continual treatment meds’, and we could get off a lot of them if we just drank the proper amounts of water. It has been a lifesaver for me already. The facts were right in front of me. We are starving ourselves of water. I have had this book for two weeks, and I already can feel the rewards of drinking the proper amounts of water. I have already eliminated taking my fluid pills and my high blood pressure pills. I feel that I haven’t even reaped in the full benefits as yet. I can’t thank Dr. Batman enough for publishing this book. If you are wondering if this book is worth the money, and can help you, the answer if YES!!!!

It wasn’t long ago that I heard of your work and was initially skeptical about trying your simple method of curing. I am now so totally convinced of your work, I tell everyone I meet about drinking water!
I had high blood pressure and my joints ached with pain before I tried your “water cure.” Since then, I have lowered my blood pressure tremendously and I feel none of the pain that once held me back from performing at my best. I once was so frustrated and tired! As an actor and full time salesperson, I lacked the energy and enthusiasm to make my life the way I know it should have been. Now, I perform easily and I feel none of the pain I once did.
I am very thankful for hearing the water message on the radio and for meeting Bob Butts and trying what is now common sense. I now tell everyone I run into along the way how I am a walking, talking testimonial for the “water cure.”
