I haven't used the water treatment, but I was pondering that if it does work, then why would that be the case. What I reckon is that OD'ing on water is actually quite bad for you. A lot of people don't realise that they can actually harm themselves if they do this longterm. This shouldn't prevent CH people though. The reason it's bad for you is that it dilutes all the nutrients in the body, including salt. Now I'm not an expert but I have a rough idea of the functions that salt performs. One of these relates to electric activity. So here's the rub. Most nutritionists would advise taking a small ammount of salt along with every litre of water. My guess is that this might counteract the anti CH effects of drinking all that water.
So how about an experiment? Someone out there who has regular success with water x 3, try taking a little salt along with the water. Now I do mean a little. Just a pinch with every litre. Taste your tears (or God forbid what we in the silver city call chat) and you'll get a good idea of how salty the body is normally - not very! The salt should prevent the water treatment working. Let's see if I'm correct.
I must add that the only treatment I actually recommend is hallucinogens. Do these and you don't need anything else... but I was reading some posts further down and it got me thinking as to why water might work.
