About book Your Body's Many Cries For Water: You Are Not Sick, You Are Thirsty! Don't Treat Thirst With Medications; A Preventive And Self-Education Manual For Those Who Prefer To Adhere To The Logic Of The Natural And The Simple In Medicine (1995)

This is a controversial book! But many medical advances often find it difficult to convince the AMA that the new information should be supported. But I firmly believe that after reading this book, the position that a number of diseases are caused by chronic dehydration. Here are some chapters titles, and the diseases involved:Dyspeptic Pain, Colitis, Hiatus HerniaRheumatoid Arthritis, Back pain, Neck pain, Angina pain, HeadachesStress and DepressionHigh Blood PressureHigher Blood CholesterolAsthma and AllergiesInsulin-Independent Diabetesand some New Ideas on AIDSThe final chapter also mentions sleep, fainting, color of urine, Salt free diet is stupid, and our responsibilities for our current health care system.If you would like to find out more about this book, go to foreign born doctor fled Iran once he was released from their prison. The only reason his life was saved is because he was treating prisoners while in prison himself. He has thoroughly documented his contacts with the head of the AMA, and how they have done nothing to change our for-profit health care system. His letters date back to 1985 and several AMA Presidents. I can only guess as to why they have done nothing to change our system. And I doubt that our newly created system will change anything. I doubt government will force any changes because of how much our representatives receive from their lobby. Your only choice is to believe the author, value his information, and use your logic to figure out if your health concerns may be related to dehydration. Buy the book and find out what your doctor is not telling you.I've also drawn some additional conclusions that some early childhood ailments may be related to chemicals in our home that affect brain growth in infants. Breathing is all that is needed to alter the brain chemistry of a growing newborn. And if you have these chemicals in use in your home, then I suggest you find a less toxic way of cleaning in your home. Another factor may be how air-tight new homes have become. Less air interchange means higher levels of these chemicals staying in your home.Also keep in mind that the longer you wait to improve your health, the more likely it is your body will no be able to get back to health, and make your health condition permanent. There are many systems involved with water, among them your hormones, endocrine system, and nervous system. The author's advice is quite simple: drink 8 ounces of water 30 minutes before every meal, and 16 ounces about 90 minutes after. Some problems are solved immediately, like heartburn. While other problems can take up to a month. Many letters comment how quickly their problem was resolved by following his advice. And many endorsement letters are included in the book. One caution is in order: if you are taking any medication, get your doctor on board so s/he can monitor your condition! Once they see that your condition has improved, you will have done your due diligence in changing how our medical care system works!Right now, the education of our doctors is completely lacking, because they do not teach anything about how water affects all systems, and how many ailments can be traced to lack of water. Why is this the case? Because our for profit system is beholden to the pharmaceutical industry! For those who live outside the United States, your education system is more open about new ideas. I hope this book will improve your health and influence your doctor. This book was published in 1992, and the AMA's insistence on pursuing money over quality health care needs to end! I hope that foreign scientific study will verify the veracity of the information in this book. The sooner this happens, the better our world health will become!

I'd heard for years that I should be drinking more water, but nobody could tell me why this was so. At the same time I found it extremely difficult to increase my intake of water for apparently no good reason.Finally, here is a book that explains why we should drink more water.Dr B's explanation, which constitutes the important message of this book, is that many common, serious ailments are caused by simple dehydration.When Dr B was incarcerated in prison in Iran for political reasons, he made the first of one of his important discoveries by completely alleviating the severe pain of a fellow inmate suffering from a stomach ulcer by giving him 3 glasses of water, no more no less.The book contains many testimonials written by persons testifying that Dr B's water intake recommendations had cured/greatly alleviated their arthritis, headaches, MS, high blood pressure, dizziness, overweight, asthma, allergies, high cholesterol, angina, hiatal hernia, back pain, etc etc.The amount of water we must drink is a minimum of 6 to 8 8-ounce glasses of water per day. Alcohol, coffee, tea and caffeine-containing beverages don't count as water.It's best to drink one glass half an hour before a meal and one glass two and a half hours after each meal. Two more glasses should be taken in connection with our biggest meal or before going to bed.Personally I have no idea how much an ounce is, but ten glasses of water is equivalent to about 2 litres, so I try to drink 2 litres a day. I measure this by refilling empty 1/2 litre coconut water cartons, and try to drink 4 of these a day. Coconut water is actually the very best liquid one can drink since it contains the necessary electrolytes, or salts - this is information I learnt from another book, on coconut water,, which book I have also reviewed.Dr B informs us that it is important to add to the diet about half a teaspoon of salt a day for every 2 litres of water one drinks (since one is drinking ordinary and not coconut water). I personally only use sea salt.The book is extremely scientific, and I don't claim to understand all of the text, but still the author is totally convincing in his arguments about the absolute necessity of our increasing our intake of water.He explains how the drinking of caffeien-containing beverages such as coffee, tea and cola exacerbates dehydration. He also explains how diet sodas cause weight gain and expatiates on the dangers of the artifical sweetener aspartame.The book contains an exciting chapter on the doctor's ideas on AIDS, that it is not caused by the HIV virus but by an imbalance in the amino acid composition in the patients' bodies.The late Dr B fought untiringly to get his message about the absolute necessity of increasing our water intake out to the world, but other doctors and authorities were impervious to his arguments. This was no doubt because water can't be patented, and the medicinal industries that control the doctors risk losing immense sums in drug profits, were the general public to discover that they could drop their drugs intake merely by drinking water.I strongly recommend that you read this essential book which contans vital, life-saving information!

The good thing about this book is that it gets you to think differently about water and how much of it you drink each day. It gets you to consider the difference between a well-hydrated joint and a dehydrated joint.The not-so-good thing about this book is that he really doesn't bother to cite any research and pretty much just explains his view along with testimonials from people with various problems who are doing better because they are drinking water. The really dumb thing about this book is how it is formatted. It's like the author wanted to make sure that no one could flip through his book to find that part they were looking for ... in fact, at the beginning he says something about wanting the book to read like a novel about his love of water (which it does not), so therefore he's omitting things like an index and formatting cues to help readers find information. (Personally, I think he knew that his book needed more careful attention to research and citing of material, footnotes, etc., in order to make it. But he wanted to just get the book out. So, is it worth a read? Hm. Probably. Just don't expect yourself to find what you're looking for by skimming. And ... well, keep your common sense turned on as you read.

An interesting premise that the author presents and then explains. I read this book years ago when the author was still alive. He has passed away now but I still recall reading this and being impressed. I can't speak to all of the medical conditions that the author postulates may be due to or at least exacberated by insufficient water in our diet. But I can speak to one of them. He states that people with chronic heart burn, should drink more water and presents a plan for doing so. At the time I was reading this I had expereinced heart burn, perhaps not chronically but more times than I cared for. So I started drinking water following Dr. Batmanghelidj's formula, i.e. 8 oz of water 30 minutes before each meal. The result for me was a reduction of heart burn incidents by about 80%. I still get heart burn on occasion but its pretty rare now. When I do, I simply drink more water. No more antacids for me.
—Douglas Larson

Dr. Batmanghelidj is an Iranian medical doctor working in the US. He was a political prisoner for some time and discovered by chance the amazing healing properties of water through his treatment of fellow prisoners by the only means available to him: drinking water.This is a very important book as it explains in great detail the physiological effects of dehydration. I find it so important, in fact, that I have written two articles about water on this blog: Water, ageing and disease and Why we should drink water before meals. Although I personally find it very important to understand why, if you don't, then the long and short of it is simple: drink plenty of pure water throughout the day and on an empty stomach.
