Lots of Water
“Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strong holds…” Nahum 3:14.
In the reign of Belshazzar, king of Babylon, when an apostate leader was on the throne, God stirred up the anointed Cyrus, (king of Persia) to overthrow Babylon. In order to conquer this seemingly invincible kingdom, it required more than just pure strength; it required a lot of wisdom. Cyrus knew that the best way to conquer the city was to dry up the water supply. In so doing he was able to overthrow the city, and in one night turn the tide of power of the greatest kingdom of the world.
This story is a parallel of the immune system if we equate the kingdom of Babylon as a mighty immune system that dries
up due to lack of water; it is easily overthrown, and the white blood cells (or soldiers) are unable to fight for their kingdom, and defeat is certain.
If the body has not received a sufficient water supply, then it thickens the blood, producing sluggish circulation and an increase in toxic build up, which leads to an overburdened immune system. All cells, including white blood cells, are dependent upon water to survive and as a medium of transport as well as oxygen supply which assists them in phagocytosis.
The body needs water for optimal function. Drink daily pure soft water; distilled water is the best. To determine your recommended daily water intake, use the following formula:
1. Your weight ÷ 2 = x
2. Then x ÷ 8 = the number of 8oz glasses of water you should drink daily.
Drink more water if you sweat much. This will help your endurance. Carry a supply with you. Drink before breakfast. Upon rising, drink two glasses at room temperature with a freshly squeezed lemon in it. Also drink between meals, (stop about 30 minutes before a meal and wait one hour after a meal), and early enough before bedtime so that you do not have to get up from sleep to empty you bladder. Do not drink water or liquids with your meals.
For External Use:
Shower daily with cool or tepid water using a bath brush or a good washcloth and rub your skin all over. This increases the circulation and helps to get toxins out. Dry off with a coarse towel rubbing skin again. Two showers a day for the first two weeks would be beneficial.
