How Exactly Does The Body Heal Itself?
First, we have to understand how the body works.
MAKE UP OF THE HUMAN BODY
The body is an incredibly sophisticated, complex
Enzymes take the raw materials, the nutrients procured from
food, water and oxygen from the air, and processes them into
the cells, tissues and organs of the body’s Electrical, Chemical
and Mechanical systems.
Some of the body’s components are:
100 Trillion Individual Cells
22 Acres of Skin
100,000 Miles of Blood Vessels
45 Miles of Nerves
9 Trillion Brain Cells
A Heart that Will Beat 2 Billion Times, non-stop
Brain, Lungs and Nervous System that will work
The body’s Electrical System produces electricity (about 25
watts) which becomes the nerve impulses used by the nervous
system to communicate with and coordinate the functions of
the cells, tissues and organs.
The Chemical System produces the hormones, acids, alkaloids,
neurotransmitters and gases necessary for life.
The Mechanical System consists of the muscles, bones and
enzymes; atomic sized proteins that make the all the body’s
functions, such as breathing, movement, thinking, etc. possible.
Every second, millions of cells are born while an equal number
are destroyed by the body. The correct building materials must
be delivered to the right site, on time, to allow the creation of
the new cells and the old cells must be dismantled and
destroyed, with the waste material removed in a timely
manner, all on auto-pilot.
Breathing, Heart Beats, Perception, Cellular Repair and
Reproduction; actually, every bodily function requires precise
timing of electrical signaling and discrete chemical reactions
carried out by the nervous system and by enzymes, the body’s
machines which physically produce all the components
required to maintain life.
The Body’s Internal Operating Environment is Critical
The body’s systems need optimum operating parameters to do
their job and to keep the body healthy.
Water is perhaps the most critical component of the body’s
environment, as discovered by the late Dr Batmanghelidj, a
classically trained gastroenterologist.
Your body is 70% water, about 10 gallons in a 150lb human
and loss of just 10% of that water can cause a collapse of your
Water is far more than just a solvent or transporter of
nutrients and wastes in and out of your cells. According to Dr.
Batmanghelidj, water has many more vital functions than most
of us are aware of:
By the way, drinking coffee, tea, soda or other water
containing drinks does not count toward your daily water
requirement as they contain substances like caffeine or alcohol
which are diuretics and actually remove more water from your
body than what is contained in the drink.
Most people do not replace the 2-2.5 quarts of water they lose
everyday with the inevitable result being chronic, unintentional
Dr Batmanghelidj’s revolutionary discovery was that chronic,
unintentional dehydration alone can lead to the development of
virtually all of the chronic degenerative diseases that plague
The Acid/Alkaline balance (Ph) of the fluids in and around the
cells is another critical operating parameter. Ph refers to the
relative percentage of hydrogen contained in a fluid, or to put
it another way, it is a measure of the relative acidity or
alkalinity of a fluid.
The PH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 0 being most acidic
reading and 14 being the most alkaline. As the scale is a
logarithmic scale, a one point difference, up or down the scale
is actually a 10 fold difference in strength.
A reading of 7 means there is an equal balance of acid and
alkaline ions present in the solution and the solution is referred
to as neutral.
The normal Ph of the cellular fluids is 7.365, slightly alkaline.
As the PH falls, the bodily fluids become more acid and
contain dramatically less oxygen. This is referred to as a state
of acidosis and is quite unhealthy unless corrected.
The acid damages cells, DNA, tissues and proteins and burns
nerves causing pain. The lowered oxygen levels promote the
growth of disease producing pathogens, bacteria, viruses, etc.
An acid environment also is the preferred environment for the
growth of cancer cells.
Oxidative stress is a term that describes the damage done to
the body by free radicals. Free radicals are dangerous,
unstable molecules produced internally as a waste product by
chemical reactions such as the metabolism of food, and
externally by toxins, sunlight or atomic radiation.
Free radicals are dangerous because they are lacking an
electron and will steal it from any other molecule it comes in
contact with, whether it is in the DNA of a cell, the cell wall, or
other proteins in a cell, damaging those molecules and making
them into free radicals and therefore unfit to perform their
normal functions in a chain reaction that can damage millions
of cells until it is stopped.
The body has natural defenses against free radicals called
antioxidants. As long as the balance between free radicals and
antioxidants stays within a certain range, the body is spared
The common denominator among these operating parameters
is that they are all dependent upon nutritional inputs to attain
and retain optimal health.
When the body’s operating environment is optimal, the body is
able to defend itself against sickness and disease and to recover
from any illness that may have taken hold during lapses.
All chronic, degenerative diseases are caused by failure of one
or more of the body’s operating parameters to function
The Four pillars of optimal cellular health are:
3. PH Balance
4. Oxidative Stress
As mentioned before all of these conditions are based on
optimal nutrition. All nutritional deficiencies have a negative
impact on optimal health.
For instance, when the body becomes dehydrated, all the cells,
organs and systems of the body are negatively impacted.
Dehydration leads to high levels of acid in the body’s fluids.
This leads to damage to blood vessels throughout the body;
cardiovascular disease, strokes, peripheral artery disease,
bleeding gums are all symptoms of dehydration caused
Pain is caused by the irritating effects of acid burning the
nerve endings in various cells.
Remember the enzymes, the workhorses of all the chemical
reactions in the body? Enzymes do not work well in an acidic
environment. They do not work well if the body’s fluids are too
thick as a result of the dehydration, either.
If the enzyme’s performance is degraded, all of the functions
they mediate, breathing, generating immune system
components, sight, muscular activity among others, thinking,
etc. will suffer.
Also, an acidic environment produces free radicals. Free
radicals, as we discussed the drivers of oxidative stress.
For instance, a free radical damaged pancreas is not going to
be able to produce the amount of insulin required by the body.
Free radicals can also damage the DNA of any cell, which may
lead to abnormal reproduction or cancer.
So we see that dehydration leads to acidosis and the generation
of free radicals which lead to all types of so-called illnesses,
diseases and pains. In reality, they are simply the results of
Man’s Original Diet
When Man was created, his body was genetically programmed
to eat and drink (metabolize) the foods and drinks that were in
his original environment, vegetables, fruits, water and some
meat and fish.
When this diet is adhered to, the body’s operating conditions
are optimal and optimal health results with the body being
able to heal itself from all assaults.
The Sickness And Death Diet
The Standard American Diet (SAD) of today is a far, far cry
from our original natural diet.
Take sugar for instance. If we observe the average sugar
consumption in non-advanced societies such as in the Amazon
or Papua, New Guinea; the per capita consumption of sugar is
about 1-3 pounds per year, from fruit and perhaps honey.
The average American drinks the equivalent of 500 cans of
soda per year, with an average 10 teaspoons of sugar each!
Throw in some cakes, cookies and pies and it adds up to over
154 pounds of sugar per year, per person.
It is a known fact that excess consumption of sugar unleashes
free radicals in the body, as does excessive amounts of fat.
The acid in sodas and animal protein are also major
contributors to the acidosis and free radical damage to the
In fact, most of the items in the SAD diet are acid forming in
the body; meat, dairy and grains, to be exact. Instead of
vegetables and fruits being the preponderant food, we gorge on
meats, grains and dairy products.
Fried foods and saturated fats produce cascades of cell
damaging free radicals.
Thousands of artificial chemical preservatives, colorizers, taste
enhancers and flavorings infest processed foods, producing a
variety of illnesses in humans, from allergies to cancer.
Residue from toxic agricultural chemicals are routinely found
in fresh fruits and vegetables.
Worry and emotional stress, so prevalent in today’s society,
are also a huge producer of acid in the body.

Michigan doctors: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/document-
The evidence is steadily mounting that radiation from cell
phones causes cancer. This is in addition to the EMF (Electro
Magnetic Frequency) radiation all around us from radio, TV,
house electrical wiring, etc.
This radiation produces dangerous free radicals when it
bombards our bodies. This is the same way atomic radiation
from an atomic bomb kills people!
Then there are the toxins in our air and water. Lead from
Chinese steel mills, ozone, particulate matter and other air
borne pollution cannot be escaped.
Our drinking water? Experts say that 19% of Americans are
drinking water so polluted that it does not meet Federal
guidelines for drinking water.
A recent study revealed that the drinking water in 42 States
was found to be contaminated with 140 unregulated chemicals
that lacked safety guidelines.
The newest hazard to drinking water is prescription drug
Imagine inadvertently feeding birth control pills, anti psychotic
medicine, antacids, strong antibiotics, blood pressure
medications, etc to you and especially your children!
A recent test showed that Philadelphia, Pa. had the most
prescription drug residue of all cities tested. Traces of an
unbelievable 52 different prescription drugs were found in the
municipal water supply.
Chlorine metabolites, resulting from the ingestion of the
chlorine in our drinking water, causes cancer.
Fluorides, in reality are among the most dangerous chemicals
on earth. Their initial use was as insect and rat poisons.
Fluorides have been implicated in auto immune diseases,
cancer and other serious diseases. The kicker? Tests show that
fluoride does NOT prevent cavities.
Bottled water? Over 40% of bottled water is simply tap water!
Worse, there are fewer regulations governing the quality of
bottled water than on municipal water. For instance, E. Coli
bacteria, found in animal and human feces, is forbidden in
municipal water, but small amounts are tolerated in bottled
I don’t know about you, but ANY amount of feces in my
drinking water is not acceptable.
You can now understand that all of these additional stresses
result in extraordinary stresses on the systems of the body.
Even Dr Batmanghelidj realized that just returning the body
to ―normal‖ is not going to be sufficient to prevent, control or
cure deadly chronic diseases in the face of the massive
environmental stresses our ―modern‖ diet and lifestyle subject
Admittedly Dr B was not a nutritionist, and he made general
recommendations such as eat more fruits and vegetables, take
supplemental vitamins and minerals, drink clean water.
I took it further. When I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, I
was devastated and frightened. Several years ago, I watched
my Father die from Type 2 diabetes and it was not pretty.
First, he lost his right foot. Then the right leg below the knee.
Then, just as his sight was failing, he died from a heart attack,
as do 75% of T2 diabetics.
His expensive diabetes medications did not stop the spread of
the disease and did not save his life, just made money for the
I decided I would not go out like he did.
I did my research and came across Dr B’s water cure. After 3
months, my diabetes was gone.
I give much of the credit for my speedy results to the fact that I
augmented the Water Cure with specific additional nutritional
and behavioral methods.
Today, I call my regimen the Complete Water Protocol.
The Complete Water Protocol
This Protocol is based on the ground breaking Water Cure of Dr F.
Batmanghelidj, the classically trained Gastroenterologist who discovered and
proved the ability of water to heal the body’s many chronic illnesses over a 22
The Complete Water Protocol is designed to add a powerful acid and free radical
fighting component to water’s proven ability to heal.
This will allow the water to not only produce results faster but to also act as a
powerful preventative by shielding the body from the daily deluge of acid
producing foods, stress and nutritional deficiencies.
The goal of this Protocol is to:
Provide adequate hydration to the body, replacing at least the 2 to 2 ½
quarts per day of water lost from the body by exhalation and elimination.
Rid the body of excess acidity, which attacks the cells of every organ and
system in the body and provides a fertile environment for the growth of
pathogens and cancer, by neutralizing it with alkalinity.
Provide antioxidants to bolster the body’s own immune defenses, which
protect it from dangerous free radicals which facilitate aging and disease.

We recommend that you seek the advice of your medical professionals before
altering any medicine, prescription or procedures prescribed by them.
Drink More Water
The first step is to drink more water.
Drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water daily, minimum 2 liters or quarts,
which is what you typically lose from your body in 24 hours. Add ¼ teaspoon of
sea salt to each quart of water, as the body’s fluids are almost the same as sea
Table salt has been processed in ultra high heat and is a toxin to the body.
Himalayan or Celtic sea salt is natural, containing the 84 minerals needed by the
body. Although sea salt should not aggravate existing hypertension, you should
check with your health care professional before adopting this suggestion.
Try to drink 30 minutes before or 2 hours after meals, never with or during a
However, the water I drank and recommend was Ionized,
This is water produced by a machine that is recognized as a
medical appliance by the Japanese and Canadian
This water, called Kangen Water, has been used in Japanese
hospitals for at least a generation to treat all sorts of chronic,
degenerative diseases, from bed sores to migraines to cancer
It has 3 characteristics that give it unique qualities:
1. High alkalinity—Fights acidosis, helps neutralize the
dangerous acidity in the blood.
2. Powerful Antioxidant—Helps defeat the dangerous free
3. Hexagonal Microclusters—Provides more efficient
hydration and extra energy to the cells of the body.
4. High levels of oxygen, which restores the oxygen in the
cells, killing pathogens and cancer cells.
This water is a powerful antidote to the acid foods and drink,
the environmental toxins in the air and water and the acid and
free radicals resulting from the emotional stress we are all
subject to on a daily basis.

In addition, the Water Protocol includes an Alkaline Diet.
The first step in a healthy, alkaline diet is to eliminate the following from your
Drinking soda or alcohol, with the possible exception of a glass of red wine with
Heated Vegetable oils with the exception of coconut oil
Try to reduce the intake of the following foods:
Commercially baked goods
Simple carbohydrates, such as baked goods, white flour, rice and pasta
Meats and fish
Fruit juices (high sugar content)
Try to limit your daily calorie intake to no more than 1,800 calories if you are a
man and 1,200 calories for women.
Nuts, particularly almonds are a great, healthy snack.
Only coconut oil should be used for cooking. Olive oil, cold, is great for salads.
An Alkaline Diet is Ideal
An alkaline diet consists of 60-90% vegetables and fruits, depending on your
health goals or current illness. The other 10-40% can be protein, beans or whole
wheat pasta or brown rice. Freshly made carrot, celery beet and other vegetable
juices are good.
We believe the Vitamix system is the best as the whole fruit or vegetable is used,
giving you the maximum amount of the phytonutrients and polyphenols, many of
which are found in the skin of the fruit.
Use sea salt for seasoning, along with cayenne pepper, turmeric and garlic to
taste. Stivea is the only recommended sweetener. It is a natural herb with no
calories. Dark chocolate, as least 70% cocoa is a natural antioxidant. Eat in
Nutritional supplements make up for the nutrients that are scarce in our foods
today. They supply additional vitamins, minerals and antioxidants needed by the
Here are our recommendations for daily nutritional supplementation:
Alpha Lipoic Acid- The Super antioxidant. Boosts the power of the other
