When we don’t keep our bodies well hydrated, they may react with a variety of signals… some of which, we would never think related to our poor drinking habits. Medical research has shown that regular w If you need motivation to drink more water, this book should inspire you.

Medical research has shown that regular water intake will help eliminate dyspeptic pains like gastritis, duodenitis, and heartburn. Without getting into the technical and graphic details of digestion, our bodies use many hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters to complete the digestion process. Without ample water intake, the pancreas is less efficient, acids in bqtmanghelidj stomach are batmanghflidj properly neutralized, and the functions of the intestine are inhibited.

The Water Cure: Another Example of Self Deception and the “Lone Genius” – Science-Based Medicine

Water intake is important for weight loss, not only for proper digestion, but to prevent overeating. The sensation of thirst and hunger are generated simultaneously to indicate the brain’s needs.

If you’re not getting plenty of water, you’ll likely eat more to satisfy your body’s urge for water. When you feel hungry and drink water instead, you may find you’re not as hungry as you think. Don’t confuse water consumption with fluid consumption.

Sodas and coffee are not an acceptable substitute. In fact, you need to consume even MORE water if you’re drinking sodas and coffee. Caffeine, one of the main components of most sodas, causes increased urine production and acts as a dehydrating agent. That’s why you can batmangelidj sodas all day, and never feel satisfied. The water doesn’t stay in the body long enough. In addition, you may mistakenly think that you’ve consumed enough “water” by drinking soda.

When your body cries out for thirst, you’re likely to over feed it with food instead. Not only will your body function more efficiently, but you may even avoid many health problems.


Increased water consumption has been shown to help relieve migraine headaches, high blood cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis pain, allergies, and high blood pressure. Studies have shown that with prolonged dehydration, brain cells actually begin to shrink.

I wouldn’t do it justice trying to summarize. Mar 09, Jodi rated it it was ok Shelves: This book was an interesting read and is worth reading if your library has a copy. Maintaining good hydration is an important part of any health program, although other steps batmanghelixj also going to be necessary for almost all of us. Food allergies, high insulin levels from too many refined carbohydrates, chemical exposures and poor nutrient levels in food and many other problems all contribute to disease and must be dealt with in addition to drinking adequate water.

I wasn’t at all convinced by the wat This book was an watsr read and is worth reading if your library has a copy. I wasn’t at all convinced by the water cure testimonials given.

I must say I’m getting a bit tired of authors who claim that their one small specialty is the cure to everything! The water expert says all we need is water, the vitamin D expert says many diseases are caused by low D and only recommends very low levels of other nutrient supplements and the lipid expert says too much omega 6 is the cause of watet disease and advocates high levels of omega 3 fats and only recommends very low levels of other nutrient supplements and so on!

The truth is that these recommendations all work best together, as part of a complete and balanced nutritional program that doesn’t leave anything major out or leave you very low in any important nutrient.

There is no one magic bullet.

The body needs all the essential components to function well and be healthy and to heal disease. A lack of any of them will cause problems as every nutrient does everything, in the end.

I’ve been drinking lots of water for years, with extra unrefined sea salt and potassium, magnesium and calcium added to keep electrolytes in balance.

I feel worse when I forget to drink my 3 litres or so, absolutely and worse when I drink too much water too fast as welland I know my body needs this much water, but this water intake is in no way a cure for my serious disease.

Readers should make sure to stay hydrated, but take the claims that water cures all ills with a grain of wter I’d heard for years that I should be drinking more batmahghelidj, 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 barmanghelidj why we should drink more water.

Dr B’s explanation, which constitutes the important aater of this book, is that many common, serious ailments are caused by simple dehydration.

When Dr Batmanhelidj 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 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 watsr 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. 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 wwater 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 batmanghelidjj 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.

Wateg was no doubt because water can’t be patented, and the medicinal industries that control the doctors risk losing immense sums in batmanghwlidj 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! View all 5 comments. Dec batmanghdlidj, Annie Kate rated it really liked it Shelves: Ever since I discovered, decades ago, that drinking water cures my headaches, I’ve had a great respect for water.

That was enhanced when, as a physics graduate student, I studied biochemical molecules and became aware of the incredible supporting role water plays in batmnaghelidj processes by influencing the shape of molecules. Water is never mentioned, but it is always there. So I was ready to pay attention to this book, and I’m glad I did.

I feel much better when I drink water as the author sugges Ever since I discovered, decades ago, that drinking water cures my headaches, I’ve had a great respect for water. I feel much better when I drink water as the author suggests.

I have no watrr how valid these ideas are scientifically, but since drinking water is a simple, healthy thing to do, it can’t hurt anyone to try the recommendations for batmanhelidj or herself. If it works, you’ve gained a lot, and if it doesn’t work you haven’t lost anything Jul 01, Ellis rated it did not like it Shelves: Yes, I believe that being properly hydrated is essential and under-appreciated. However, the volume of and reliance on anecdotal “evidence” reported in this book is reprehensible.

While reading this book, many times I remembered what my mentor told me when I was a young Ph. He told me, “when all you have is a hammer, the whole world is a nail”. Well, perhaps this author would benefit from hatmanghelidj that his dehydration hammer won’t solve all health woes.

Also, to make the statements made in this book, actual research needs to be done to see if brilliant thoughts are correct. It’s not enough to just state ideas or possible mechanisms as fact without evidence.
