Make Every Sip Of Water Your Medicine

Published on October 15, 2021

There has never been so great a need for us to increase our routines of self-health care. With the world threatening to come apart around us, if we do not take care of ourselves, who will? We can not depend on the western medical system; in truth, we never could, but now healthcare is being torn to shreds with the insanity of the vaccine mandates. Doctors and nurses are resigning in droves rather than take the needle. Many who need primary care will not get it, and perhaps that is a good thing.

My Natural Allopathic Protocol provides a viable pathway to sustain health and strength in a world going mad and broke. We need to redouble our efforts to remain sane and get more serious about our daily health routines simply because it is more stressful than ever to be alive today.

What I am doing now (finally) is dietary restriction (intermittent fasting – 69 years overdue), EWOT (Exercise with Oxygen), and sleep therapy with hydrogen gas, besides my yoga, mediation. Oh yes, solar gazing and breathing retraining are also on the daily schedule, which only fails when clouds block the rising sun.

However, without water, there is no life. We need to bring quite a bit of our consciousness into the water we make and drink. Without sufficient hydration, all other medical treatments are doomed. There is no substitute for good water and no getting around the realities of dehydration.

However, the sicker a person is, the more a person needs to leverage their water intake. Meaning sometimes, we need to make every sip count. We need to piggyback the most necessary mineral medicines in every drop. Making your water into the best treatment will increase the chances you can overcome whatever disharmony or disease.

All functions within the body require the presence of Water

A well-hydrated body enables biological processes to occur quickly and efficiently. One of the secrets to health and recovery from chronic disease is drinking a lot of water loaded with strong healing agents.

At the Canadian Society of Nephrology’s 2013 annual meeting, researchers reported that chronic kidney disease was 2.5 times less likely to develop in people who drank more than 4.3 liters of water a day than those who drank less than two liters a day. Thus good water is medicine all by itself. Now imagine loading every drop of that water we take with supercharged medicines.

What do we do when we are treating distressed cells is making them more comfortable by getting them stronger. First, we need to help the cells detox. We need to facilitate them getting rid of their accumulated waste. Get them more oxygen and use hydrogen to neutralize the most harmful free radicals, thus reducing oxidative stress.

In medicine, it pays to pay attention to the basics. Want to stay young and healthy? Pay attention to your water, and importantly what is in your water. In most places in the world today, tap water is not acceptable. Almost all tap water is polluted with many contaminants, including chlorine and fluoride.

So the first step in using water as a medicine is to purify it with one of many filtering processes. Then, once we have pure water, we have to pay attention to what we put in our water to make it more powerful, elevating the water to a curative agent.

Water with hydrogen has grown in popularity lately, but that will never compare to hydrogen gas generated from a hydrogen inhalation machine. Although adding hydrogen to one’s body is excellent medicine, the most potent or perfect water is high in magnesium bicarbonate.

Without sufficient magnesium and bicarbonates in the water, disease will catch up with us sooner or later because no one can eat enough magnesium anymore. And with the world being as toxic as it is, hardly anyone can maintain enough bicarbonates and CO2 in the blood.

The very best water is high in magnesium bicarbonate, which is the ideal form of both of these minerals. A less expensive, more accessible approach is combining sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and magnesium carbonate, which will add oxygen and alkalinity to the body’s fluids and cells while increasing cell voltage.

High levels of magnesium and bicarbonate ensure that one’s water is alkaline. The reason magnesium bicarbonate is effective and robust is that bicarbonate acts as a transporter of magnesium into the mitochondria.

After a few days, one can experience the extra punch of energy when drinking all your water loaded with magnesium bicarbonate. Magnesium bicarbonate is a complex hydrated salt that exists only in water under specific conditions. The magnesium ion is Mg2+, and the bicarbonate ion is HCO3-. So, magnesium bicarbonate must have two bicarbonate ions: Mg (HCO3)2.

Magnesium chloride and sodium bicarbonate are considered medicines in their injectable forms because both provide immediate relief to physiological disturbances. Both sodium bicarbonate and magnesium chloride are everyday items that, when not injected, are considered foods safe for consumption. Luckily for everyone, these two substances are effective for chronic and acute disorders when used orally and transdermally; we do not need to go to the emergency room for injections.

Dr. Lynda Frassetto of University of California, San Francisco says, “Insufficient amount of bicarbonates in our blood reduces our capabilities to manage (neutralize and dump) the acid our body produces. This is the cause of aging. The age of 45 is the average age when human beings start to show symptoms of diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and many other adult degenerative diseases. And since we cannot manage the acid, we accumulate acidic wastes in our bodies. These wastes show up as cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, urate, sulfate, phosphate, kidney stones, etc.”

It is important to note that people living/working in a polluted environment have fewer amounts of bicarbonates in their blood than people working in a clean environment. The most important function of alkaline water is to increase bicarbonates in the blood because we lose bicarbonates as we age.

The Journal of Nutrition conducted a study of sparkling and still mineral water. It was found that drinking sparkling water brought about significant reductions in the level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (generally regarded as a risk factor for heart disease), as well as a substantial increase in levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (generally taken to reduce heart disease risk). These and other biochemical changes induced by drinking sparkling water were estimated to reduce the women’s risk of developing heart disease over the next decade by about a third.

Magnesium the Most Necessary Mineral in Water

Dr. Norman Shealy says, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency” and that, “magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.”

With insufficient cellular hydration, there is only a limited amount of magnesium mineral uptake and utilization achievable, which is not enough to quench the body’s needs unless more water is taken in. But when dehydration continues, more cortisone and histamine are released, exacerbating inflammatory response, and therefore more free calcium.

With more magnesium in our water, we would see a steep drop off of heart attacks and strokes, and most other diseases, including cancer. With more magnesium, we suffer less from pain and depression.

A Tufts study led by Adela Hruby found that healthy people with the highest magnesium intake were 37% less likely to develop high blood sugar or excess circulating insulin, common precursors to diabetes.

Best-Bottled Waters in the World

Donat Mg from EuropeUnique Water from Australia, and Noah’s from California are the three best-bottled waters globally because of the large concentration of magnesium bicarbonate present. Nothing will do more to overcome mitochondrial decay and generally low cell energy levels than jacking in high levels of magnesium bicarbonate into the cells. If one does not live in Europe, California, or Australia, one can buy a magnesium bicarbonate concentrate in the States.


Another best option is pH Adjust, which combines sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate. Adding some freshly squeezed lemon to bicarbonate and water is always an excellent idea.

Because I have not been able to get pH Adjust down here in Brazil, I have been ordering Tri-Salts, which has calcium, magnesium, and potassium bicarbonate. I add sodium bicarbonate to the Tri-Salt formula to bring up the bicarbonate concentration.
