Father Knows Best

There is an old remedy that I grew up with that can cure what ails you.  No matter the symptoms, there were three things you should do to get right back on top.  

Step 1: Drink lots of water.

Step 2: Take some Tylenol.

Step 3:  Get more sleep.

That is the magic potion that we were given for headaches, colds, flus, broken legs, severed finger, and the like.

For example, I had a cold and I followed the program and I recovered in about 10 days.  The next time I was sick, I didn't follow the program and got better in a week and a half.  

So thank you dad for the best way to recover from illness.  I'll be sure to continue to pass this along to my family and friends.

Here are some facts to help back up some of what my dad has been preaching:

The following will probably amaze and startle you. cid:7B01B2A3ED344970A4F08E5800ABA1CB@donqfw8dqgdl1h
One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.

Lack of water 
is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 
8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. 

A mere 2% drop in body water
 can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily 
decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. 

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
(No kidding, all of the above are true...)


  1. Bless you my son. It came into play this past New Years when I had a raction to bad ice with my scotch. One galss of water at bedtime, one in the middle of the night and one in the morning when I awoke. Like a charm....
