I wrote yesterday “Death on the edge”, because that is where my partner was no thanks to his doctors. I can’t blame them, they are doing what they are told to do and it’s our responsibility to be informed and ask questions. I was right about the diuretic usage. It has caused much more damage than I even realized.
The Discharge Letter arrived today. In the discharge letter the doctor treating Toni writes why he was admitted and what he was suffering from. Normally, he is given the letter before leaving, for some reason it took five days to have it done this time. I understand now why.
For starters, his condition turned out to be “deteriorating general health”. All the tests they did while in hospital didn’t show any progression of his COPD or Pulmonary Hypertension. What was worrisome and alarming was that his potassium, calcium and leukocyte levels were dangerously low.
So, I looked up “low leukocyte levels”, some of the main causes are: antibiotics, infection, inflammation and guess what: diuretics.
Water is life. We can’t exist without water. Not liquids, water. When we drink liquids such as tea, coffee, juices etc., the stomach actually recognizes that as food so it digests the contents. When we drink water, there is no digestion, the intestines absorb and distribute where needed. This is in simple form, please don’t take this word for word, do your own research.
Toni suffered many changes during his time taking diuretics which is about 2 years. For starters, we noticed that he was losing taste, smell and was always cold. But when subtle changes happen, you don’t know where they come from, he also took 8 different drugs at the time so you have no way of knowing if it’s even the side effects or the disease progressing.
His body is basically ravaged by dehydration in such a way that in the last few days while rehydrating with Alkaline Water, he’s going through what seems to be a drug withdrawal or healing crisis. Most frequent is hot cold spells, fever and sweating. This could be withdrawal from the drug, but I would say it’s actually his body rehydrating and his systems waking up and starting their engines. It’s obvious that his immune system is under great stress because he fevers a lot, a few hours of fever, sweating and then he’s feeling good.
I can’t imagine what else is going on inside while he was do dehydrated, every cell in the body requires water. The brain takes the most and first portion of water. The brain needs 40% of the water we intake, of course it makes sense because the brain is our computer and without it functioning well, nothing else will work either.
Another side effect of the diuretic is swollen, inflamed joints. In a week Toni suffered from intense shoulder pain, right wrist pain and foot pain, all very swollen and painful to touch. In fact, he spent 2 days in bed because his foot hurt so bad he could not even put on slippers. During this time I tried every single therapy I could think of and nothing helped which indicates that it’s due to acid in the blood and now with hydrating going on, it’s cleaning up all the chronic issues he had in the past. In fact, his allergies got really bad yesterday but it only lasted for a few hours and all symptoms disappeared.
There is no answer to: How much water do we need to intake daily? Ask 100 experts and you will get 100 answers, but I have my own formula. I would suggest that you drink 1L of water for every 100 lbs. It’s logical the more you carry the more water is needed because there are more fat cells. There is no such thing as drinking too much water unless you have some kind of condition where it retains the water, then it’s possible you can drink too much, so you should be eliminating the same amount you intake but only if you are taking in the correct amount. Our body doesn’t absorb the water, it simply uses it to clean, eliminate, create blood etc., and it will get rid of it if you are taking in proper amounts.
You know for years even as a young woman, my ankles would really swell up at the end of the day. I always thought it was just hereditary because my mother had the same problem, but it was only 5 years ago when I started to drink water that I realized it was my body actually holding on to the water or liquids I drank because it never got enough. I was not a water drinker, I was coffee drinker and smoker, so it makes sense because now that I drink enough, I don’t swell up anymore.
Water is life but most important a diuretic is death. It has no value in medicine because it acts like an antibiotic, it doesn’t zone into a specific area to eliminate water, it removes ALL water from the body. Toni was told he had some fluids around his heart, although there is no image showing that but even at that time, it didn’t make sense to me because these diuretics basically force the kidneys to eliminate and not distribute water, thus, your whole body is suffering as a result. I can’t prove the diuretic doesn’t work but doctors can’t prove it does work either.
There is a lot of medical research done on diuretics and they don’t bode well, in fact, I think they should remove it from the market because for one issue, Toni now has 10 issues and who knows, maybe even more that have not manifested outwardly yet.
So, the discharge letter made a list of all the medications for him to take except the diuretic. You can’t tell me his specialist didn’t know it could possiblly be the cause of his general health breakdown? It’s in the packaging, it clearly states that one of the side effects of this drug is blot clotting and 100 more side effects. He knew this and this is why he had it removed from Toni’s drug list, but he could have talked to his patient to find out if he was still taking it. You see, the doctor didn’t know he had stopped taking prior to being admitted into the hospital, so he quietly just removed it from his list and never mentioned anything about it.
This was part of the reason why he ended up in hospital this time. He was so dehydrated that his body functions were starting to break down, he was passing out, weakness, trembling, fevers started because of withdrawal and intake of alkaline water. This water is a miracle, I suggest you all drink it as I have started too.
Alkaline water recipe: For 1 gallon of water. Add filtered water, 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of himalayan salt and I used 4 frozen cubes of lemon already squeezed and frozen, that would be about 2 lemons squeezed. Mix it up each time you drink it, it will go rancid after 3 days so make enough to drink for each day.
Life on the edge is interesting, but it’s no longer death on the edge, at least not for now. Thanks again for all your wonderful “get well” emails and love energy!
May you be filled with love and joy today.
