Water therapy, water is life





Water makes up about two-thirds of the Earth’s surface, and this also applies to the human body, which God created from the dirt and said to him, “Be,” and so it was, as water represents about two-thirds of a person’s weight, and water enters the structure of all cells, and is necessary for their life and survival, and God Almighty spoke the truth when He He said: “And We made from water every living thing.”


Water is necessary for treatment just as it is necessary for life, and therefore it is used to treat many diseases and health problems. These uses have been known since ancient times, and still are until now, with some recent additions and discoveries.
