Curing Acne With Water - Will Water Work to Cure Acne?

Water water everywhere. Even the body is made up of about eighty percent water. The body needs water and plenty of it to function properly. It is no wonder water is so important for curing acne. If you are trying to prevent, minimize or cure acne without making use of plenty of fresh clean water you wasting your time and efforts and money.

First off, drinking plenty of water every day is almost a given necessity for everyone, whether or not they are trying to cure acne or no. By simply breathing we aspirate approximately two quarts of water a day. This does not even take into account what is lost in perspiration. At that rate without any intake of water we will simply breathe ourselves into a total state of dehydration and death, a lot sooner than later.

The truth of it is, most all of us are dehydrated and do not even know it. We have so educated or trained ourselves to live without water we do not even know when we are thirsty. Very often we try to quench the desire for water with food because we do not know the difference. And we want to know why we are an obese society. Don't get me started.

Simply drinking approximately one ounce of water per pound of body weight will go a long way to curing acne. Drinking water will carry nutrients to the bodies cells and carry toxins away to be eliminated. Water will cleanse the skin of dead and dying cells and dirt and grime. And water will moisturize the cells as well.

But there is something in addition to just "drinking water" that is beneficial to curing acne.

Water Fasting.

Fasting with water is one of the fasted way of cleansing the body there is. However, it is not for the weak of heart. It does require a good amount of willpower and discipline to be successful.

Water fasting speeds up the elimination of expelling toxins and healing the body. Water fasting is more beneficial than juice fasting and has been used and has been successful in healing a vast variety of diseases and ailments that have resisted all other forms of treatment, including that of severe acne.

Before you being a water fast, providing you are man or woman enough to see it through, here are some things to consider doing so you can have a much better chance of being seeing your fast successfully through.

PREPARE YOURSELF MENTALLY. Take a vacation of sorts, from daily routines. Eliminate doing anything that requires a great deal of responsibility. Commit to what you are about to do and know why you are doing it.

REST. All forms of hard physical labor/activity should be avoided. Spend your time watching TV (as if you don't all ready), reading, getting a sun tan, or just some quiet time with you and yourself.

ENVIRONMENT. You will want to do this in fresh clean air and a quiet location as much as possible.

DRINKING WATER. Drink only good clean water. Water that has been properly filtered or a good quality mineral water. And drink as much as you like. At least a gallon a day.

NOURISHMENT. If you desire a bit of nourishment during your fast, you may add a few tablespoons full of Real Maple Syrup and some lemon juice to your water.

A water fast can last as long as you want or are capable of sustaining. It will not be harmful to you unless you are on a special doctor's diet. Everyone should and must take responsibility for their own health so use good common sense and follow your own conscience when doing anything associated with your body and health and be responsible.

However, two days should be good to start. The body will respond quickly to the break in having to digest all of that crappy food you have been feeding it, thinking you were actually giving it life sustaining nutrition.

Your fast will quickly remove toxins and acids and other food byproducts from you system. You may even feel worse than before you started, for a short time, but it is only what is called a healing crises and will soon pass. Enjoy it. You worked for years to get to this point. Your earned it so enjoy while you can. Things will definitely get better before they be worse, if you hang in there and you will get rid of acne sooner than you expect.

As a wise man once said, "There is not great loss but what there isn't some small gain." Or was it, "no pain no gain"?

As mentioned before, there have been some magical healing from water fasts. Such incredible things such as hearing restored, tumors eliminated, eyesight restored, allergies cured and even sever acute cases of acne cured.

Water fasts will do a major clean up job on your insides. It will help to cure or prevent acne, but not long term by itself. For long term benefits and lasting results, water fasting should be associated with other preventive measures such as, stress reduction, proper and adequate sleep/rest, nutritious diet (elimination of most sugars, alcohol, caffeine and soda pops) and detoxing the bodies organs.

As an added bonus to preventing acne, if you suffer from kidney stones, water fasting will dissolve large ones and expel them as little ones. And if you don't know you have them, you probably do and water fasts will help to make sure you never have to suffer with them. And you do NOT want to suffer with them. Now, go start that fast started and get rid of that acne.
