book "The Body's Many Cries for Water" states
all disease is related to water
and water heals all disease He
has several other books on water and diseases related
The first time I heard this statement I thought it was
crazy. I thought this is another unfounded ridiculous
theory to line someone's pocket. Sure water is good but
the thought that it can cure or that its deficiency causes
all diseases was just too much for me to accept. Like
anyone else I could accept that the purity of water had
merit, but that not drinking enough water could be responsible
for all disease was just too simplistic to be credible.
Well several months after first hearing the statement
about water being the source for all the body's health
I obtained Dr. Batmanghelidj's book "Your Body's
Many Cries for Water"
I was amazed with the research and substantiation in
his book and it has completely changed my mind and my
life. I began drinking 1/2 ounce of water per pound of
body weight along with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt per quart
of water each day. See
My energy and desire to exercise has increased tremendously.
In the past my chronic fatigue and lack of energy was
so bad that if I attempted any exercise I would be so
exhausted and unable to function for days. I must add
that water is not the only change I have made for my health
but it certainly is a vital part. See positive mind page
Since Dr. Batmanghelidj's research has not been accepted
by main stream medicine he has been forced to publish
his research to the public. His first article was published
in 1982 and appeared in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology
in June of 1983 and reported on in the Science section
of the New York Times. He has followed this up with numerous
reports and articles to numerous medical forums.
Here is one of his statatements, "My research revealed
that unintentional dehydration produces stress, chronic
pains and many degenerative diseases.... Medicine has
based its understanding that it is solid matter in the
body that regulates all functions of the body. I have
explained scientifically at the molecular level that it
is water that regulates all functions of the body including
functions of solid matter. 75
% of our
bodies are composed of water. The brain
is 85% water. It is water
that energizes and activates the solid matter. If you
don’t take enough water, some functions of the body
will suffer. Dehydration produces system disturbances.
When I use the word water cure, I am referring to curing
dehydration with water." Fereydoon Batamanghelidj,
This is a recent email reply from
Dr. B's web site.
The benefits of Dr. B's program are fantastic. -but
we never claim that the water and salt will cure
things. (That's not exactly true: Water and sea
salt cure dehydration.) When the body is hydrated,
it is better able to protect and heal itself as
it was designed to do. But the body heals itself.
The water and salt only meet the needs of the body
to allow it to function as it should.
re: sea salt. You'll find about 24 reasons why
sea salt is good and needed by the body in Chapter
13 of the book "Water for Health, for Healing,
for Life," by Dr. Batmanghelidj. He doesn't
sell sea salt or recommend any particular brand,
so this might be of help to you on your salt page.
(All the salt that Dr. B talks about is always sea
salt. He assumes that we will be using this, and
assumed it from the beginning. The sea salt is what
he grew up with and thought of as salt.)
The Albany Medical
College published a research report that stubstintuates
See our disease
and item (1) where the Department of Biochemistry
& Molecular Biology, Albany Medical College,
NY 12208, USA. has indicated water relates to oxygen
and that proper oxygen is a fundamental basis to
prevent all diseases.
is the most pure water, but not necessarily the best water
because it lacks essential minerals. All minerals as well
as all impurities are removed from distilled water. That
means that it lacks vital nutrition as well. It is suggested
that this lack of minerals will leach minerals
out of the bones thus cause more harm than good.
Some say a person with osteoporosis who drinks only distilled
water will accelerate the removal of minerals from the
bones. Or in other words distilled water leaches minerals
out of the bones. Others claim distilled water lacks a
healthy ph balance.
One of the problems with water treatment plants is the
controversial use of aluminum.

of many health problems and is the most prevalent mineral
in our world.

"The sad truth is our water supply is compromised
by harmful chemicals. EPA standards require water treatment
plants to reduce certain contaminants. Annual reports
issued by the EPA for 2002 indicate that there were 80,635
documented violations nationwide. When violations occur,
“boil water” alerts are issued but, by then,
you may have already consumed contaminated water."
"Distillation of water is widely recognized as the
most effective way to purify water for safe drinking.
Although some warn against the removal of minerals from
water, it is understood that the minerals found in our
water are non-absorbable, which means they either pass
through our bodies or worse could build-up contributing
to certain health problems. We agree with the experts
that food derived minerals from fruits and vegetables
are a key to health and quality of living. If you feel
that you do not get enough minerals naturally through
your diet, you can also use supplements which of course
are from food source minerals." source
Beware of too much water without a balance of sea salt.
a condition that can cause death.
