Has anyone had any experience with this? I read about it at www.watercure2.com

I just requested the book "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" from my library, but wanted to know what others here thought.
Here is an excerpt:
---------------------------------------------
The Water Cure Recipe:

Drink 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces, daily.

Example: 180 lb = 90 oz. of water daily.

Use 1/4 tsp. sea salt for every quart of water you drink.



Use a good sea salt, one with at least 80 minerals, liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can use the salt. Some put it in their water, some lick it off their hand, some season their foods after cooking. It's up to you. Make sure you take potassium daily (banana, orange juice, etc) Avoid caffeine and alcoholic drinks. These are diuretics and will dehydrate you. Every 6 oz. of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional 10 to 12 oz. of water to re-hydrate you.
-------------------------------------------

That's very interesting. I have never heard of that.
There was a thing on the news the other day about a woman who drank too much water before, during and after a marathon, and she died. I believe she did not get the potassium or salt required to stay healthy and literally "diluted" her blood.
Thank you for the link. It looks interesting!!
