The best way to use the water cure is to drink a little water, dissolve sea salt on the tongue, then finish your amount of water. We also use sea salt liberally on our food. See our Critical Salt Info link. We sometimes use raw sugar or honey to give us energy for our body to function better or when in pain or ill to keep our body from cannibalizing our muscles.
Note: professional sports teams initially noted that an oral saline IV worked as good as, or better than, an IV of salt water in a vein, but later we found out how & why it worked better when we do not put salt in the water.
