Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is said to be water on the brain, but how in the world would water get in the brain in order to be on the brain?

Hydrocephalus is none other than toxic fluid waste in the brain and therefore on the brain.

But before we go really deep on the matter, let’s explain hydrocephalus from a medical perspective.

Hydrocephalus. A pathologic condition characterized by an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid, usually under increased pressure, within the cranial vault and subsequent dilatation of the ventricles. Interference with the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid may be caused by increased secretion of the fluid, obstruction within the ventricular system (noncommunicating or extraventricular hydrocephalus), resulting from developmental anomalies, infection, trauma, or brain tumors. Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd edition, p. 581

Conditions such as “water on the brain” and “water on the knee” are misnomers. The body is naturally made of 80% water so how could water harm the brain or knee or any other part of the body? We know water saturated in the lungs would be harmful, well, if it was poured into the lungs, or, if someone drowned. Yeah, so water in the lungs (outside of the tissues of the lungs, that is) would be a concern.

Hydrocephalus is a build up of fluid in the brain. Specifically, fluid fills up in the brain’s right and/or left ventricles, causing deformation of the skull.

Causes and Risk Factors

The condition is caused by an imbalance in how much cerebrospinal fluid is produced and how much absorbed in the blood stream.

Risk factors include:

  • Head injury
  • Nervous system infections
  • Stroke or bleeding in the brain
  • Brain tumors
  • Spinal cord tumors
  • Premature birth

Symptoms

Hydrocephalus is usually indicated by these symptoms:

  • A unusually large head
  • A bulge on the skull
  • Soft spots on the top of the head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sleepiness
  • Trouble eating
  • Seizures

Healing Hydrocephalus Naturally

Western medicine treatment protocols consists almost exclusively of surgical intervention to correct the ventricular obstruction, reduce the production of cerebrospinal fluid, or shunt the excess fluid by ventricular bypass to the right atrium of the heart or to the peritoneal cavity.

Supporting options include:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Developmental therapy

Dietary Intervention
A high alkaline diet may help manage hydrocephalus. It consists of 80% alkaline foods (which are fruits and vegetables) and 20% acidic foods, and 80% raw foods (preferably organic) and 20% cooked foods (vegan in nature – no meat and/or dairy products).

Plenty of good drinking water should be consumed daily, especially alkaline water (preferably ozonated), and vegetable juice as well should be consumed daily or as often as possible.
