Adding water to the diet could be the most difficult of tasks if
your elderly loved one “doesn't like it.” Calcium should be in the
form of milk, magnesium as a tablet. When tablets cannot be
swallowed; use magnesium oxide powder (see Sources). Use 1/8
tsp. added to cooked cereal, soup, stew, pudding. Magnesium,
being a mineral, does not get destroyed as vitamins may. You can
add it anywhere in the diet where it won't be tasted. Notice how
calming it is to have extra magnesium in this gradual way. And
how much better the sleep is at night.
When water “doesn't taste good,” there is probably a valid
reason. The body may be trying to reject chlorine or other toxins
in it. In this case, filter it with a small all-carbon unit that is
changed right on schedule. A plastic pitcher
(not clear plastic or flexible plastic) with a carbon pack fitted into the top is best. Sterilize it once a week by putting a cup of water and one this of grain alcohol in it and turning it upside down so the filter can soak for 15 minutes. Flush out the alcohol with two pitchers of water. Make sure the temperature suits the person. Temperature can mean everything to the never-thirsty person. Don't allow ice cubes, however, nor beverage making, with the essential water. Adding lemon or vinegar (white distilled) and 1 tsp. honey is probably the best way to stimulate both thirst and appetite.
When blood is properly oxygenated it takes on a bright red
color, unoxygenated blood is more purple. A chelation doctor
can easily see the state of oxygenation.
