    I had severe reflux and after following the recommendations in Dr. B's program, I no longer suffer from this.

    I have gotten my entire family and friends on this and most have reported relief from various issues.

    Anyone suggesting this book a fake or false MUST BE A DRUG-DEALING DOCTOR or someone for the promotion of the FDA!!!

    EXCELLENT!!...more info
  • Great book with wise advise....
    Having bought and read the authors book Your Body's Many Cries For Water and given copies of it to friends I was interested in what he had to say in this new book and wasn't disappointed. Water is something that is written about in every religion and is depicted on cave walls thousands of years old. Early settlers here in the states sought homesteads near fresh water. Yet, American don't drink enough water and our health shows it. This is a vast contrast to the third world where fresh water projects are what people request more than any other issue.

    The authors chapter 11 which details many ailments and why water is needed to reduce or remove the ailment is worth the price of the book. Chapter 12 which discusses why it has to be water and not just any liquid, is something Americans who consume more soft drinks and coffee than any other country need to read. On page 159 he discusses the importance of water in reducing obesity which is a must read in my opinion.

    The author gives an excellent real life example of a woman named Shahla who would drink a glass of wine and lay pool side in order to de-stress from a hectic life and lose weight. The woman became so dehydrated from not drinking water that her body went into shock and what she ended up with was water being put into her by medical professionals and a thirteen thousand dollar hospital bill. Think of how drinking water would have prevented this from happening and ask yourself if you are making similar mistakes.

    The author drives home the point that lack of water will dehydrate the brain and other organs much faster than one imagines and that one cannot wait until they are thirsty, but have to drink water throughout the day to stay totally healthy.

  • Water for health
    Fereydoon Batmanghelidj was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1931. He graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School of London University, where he studied under Sir Alexander Fleming. In 1979, he was sent to the Evin Prison when the Iranian Revolution broke out. Charges were leveled against him and he was scheduled to be executed, however, it was realized that he was useful as a resident doctor among the prisoners, so his execution was delayed. According to numerous writings by Dr. Batmanghelidj, he discovered the medicinal value of water during his prison stay by treating inmates with water because medication was not available. It was from these experiences that he gained an understanding of water. His methods have been deemed controversial by some, but others have claimed to benefit from his treatment methods.

    The main idea of Dr. Batmanghelidj's way of healthy life is to upkeep the desired amount of water in the organism. He gives the overview of substances that decrease and increase the quantity of water in the body. The substances covered are alcohol, tea, coffee, salt, sweeteners and so on. He gives examples of how the lack of water harms various organs and various deceases, including AIDS. Some examples are doubtful, but traditional health care practitioners approve some of Dr. Batmanghelidj's assertions about water.

    I personally do not agree with all of the Dr. Batmanghelidj's statements that water can heal every decease. I did drink a lot of pure water before reading Dr. Batmanghelidj's books, and I also follow his advices about water (I did even heal some of my deceases with water), but I'm sure that in many cases you should not refrain from applying to professional medical care just because you drink enough water. You should not try to heal every disease with just water.

  • I learned alot.
    An excellent book. I learned alot about the many benefits of water. For years I thought that drinking sodas and juices replaced any need that I might have had for plain water and boy was I wrong. Now that I have been drinking water I feel better, have lost weight (I wasn't over weight before) and almost every aspect of my health has improved. If years ago I would have known what I know now about the benefits of drinking water I could have saved myself alot of money on other fluids that in essence were not doing my body as much good as a plain glass of water would have. I highly recommend this book. ...more info
  • 1st step to better health
    This book is was beneficial. As a two time cancer survivor I learned a lot about the impact water has on your body. After my third out of fourth treatment (round one) I was told to drink one gallon of water during the first two days after chemo and then half a gallon the rest of the time in order to "flush the kidneys" of the toxins from chemo (because if I didn't they would crystalize in my organs). My doctor said since the chemo goes into your blood stream first you won't "water down" the chemo by drinking so much. I faithfully began drinking the large amounts (even though it was extremly hard.) I gave it a try and I truly could endure my last two treatments. Although I have had a recurrance, the second treatment went smoothly with little illness. I drank water from the start and finished strongly. It will be almost two years since my last bout with the stupid disease. I believe that good spring or purified water is the best, however, maintaing a healthy balance in eating and exercising are important. BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I LEARNED WAS TO ALLOW GOD TO BE GOD AND THANK HIM FOR EVERY MOMENT HE GIVES YOU- WE ARE ALL APOINTED A TIME TO DIE, BUT BE VIGILANT AND NOT FOOLISH IN THE DAYS YOU ARE GIVEN....more info

  • Common sense isn't always common
    I just ordered this book so I'm not giving a "book review" as much as I'm supporting an idea that should be as second nature as breathing -- and some don't do that the way they should. Water, is so important to our overall well being and I think those who are looking for "medical" or "scientific" proof of this is dense. I also agree that this over proliferation of drugs for whatever ails you, and drugs for ailments that haven't been invented yet [but, coming soon]is all about $$$ for drug companies. If you want proof, try going without water for say, a week, then see how you feel - that`d be your proof. ...more info

  • You're not sick, you're thirsty!
    This is an informative book about many illnesses that we have nowadays that doctors prescribe medicine for and which could be solved, if not cured, by water. Unfortunately you have to start your water regime early on, preferably in childhood, so all parents who love their children should read this....more info
  • More people should read it
    It is a nice book. I think, more people should read it. What is lacking, are scientific references to his claims.
    As an engineer and quality controller I don't take things for face value, I need to see some proof for any claim.
    Therefore I searched the Internet for the claims and explanations as well as books on microbiology and biochemistry. I'm not through yet, things are not stored in one place for easy reference and often you need to check several places to see whether they say the same and still don't refer to the same source. Anyway, so far I didn't find anything that is contradictory to any claim in the book (which does not mean that there isn't anything contradictory, it just says, I haven't found it yet, and I'm not a scientist with access to all scientific material).

    Strangely I found some coincidences not listed in this book.
    Carbohydrates, proteins and lipids (fats) need water for cracking the molecules into smaller parts. Could it be that storage of fat in the body is just another way to get water? Since 3 water molecules are released for each molecule of triglyceride stored.
    You can look it up yourself if you want.

    Anyway, I started to drink more water and take more salt. My boyfriend didn't. I lost my depression, he didn't. I sleep well, he doesn't. This might not mean anything though.

    I also found that I get health problems if I don't drink enough water during the week in the office.

    One interesting touch: I look at different symptoms now with the "water eye". When somewhere "anti-histamine" is mentioned as treatment or symptome reduction treatment, the "water alarm" goes on, and I look further whether there are other references to be found, related to chronic disease, virus or water....more info
  • "Water".........Right idea; poor presentation
    The author is 'right on' in emphasizing the importance of water in our life. I agree with the 'conclusion' of his arguments, particularly the importance of 'prevention' as compared to the 'cure'. I agree also with his views on the importance of salt and minerals in our diet. In fact, his summary at the end of the book is good. So why do I have a problem with the book? Virtually all of his 'theories' presented, essentially as a 'cure', or at least a help in the prevention of a disease, are unsubstantiated, exaggerated, and largely unbelievable. He would have us believe that hydration of the body will prevent or inhibit virtually all diseases afflicting mankind. There is almost no mention of support for his hypotheses by reputable people in the medical professions; no peer reviews. Peer reviews are the essential part of understanding and revising medical practice ( or any scientific theory for that matter.) We are to believe there exists some sort of alliance of doctors and the drug industry to prevent the public from learning that if we are 'hydrated' most of the drugs on the market today would be unnecessary ( unacceptable to those industries that thrive on the fat profits).
    Perhaps I'm over stating my problem with the book, but I believe the way it is presented is much too self serving and runs the risk of being counter productive; a very harmful result for such an important subject....more info
  • Drink 8 glasses of water daily.
    This book was a complete waste of time and money. Very disappointing....more info
  • Some good ideas presented by a fruitcake.
    Firstly, I do agree that most people do not get sufficient water during the day. Drinking more water, and being hydrated, is a good thing and does help with a number of issues. However, this doctor is saying that water can cure you of a number of diseases that it just won't.

    The tone of the book begins as very defensive, with a rebuttle to an article another doctor wrote about this water cure idea. It goes on for quite a long time, and the defensive posture is echoed throughout the book. I admit, the author has a lot to be defensive about, as, in my opinion, this book is full of junk science and dubious references. A classic case of garbage in garbage out.

    Drink your 64oz of water a day and feel better. There, I just saved you the cost of the book, the waste of time reading it and picking through the dross to find the tiny little well-known nugget of gold at the center.

    If you are really concerned about your body and making it as healthy as you can, I personally recommend YOU, THE OWNER'S MANUAL by Roizen and OZ as a far better resource. Not to mention a considerably better read....more info
  • Life Renewal

  • Absolutely agree!
    I found this book fantastic! It makes so much sense, and it also goes hand in hand with what I've learned by reading the two "Cleanse and Purify Thyself" books, by Richard Anderson N.D., and "The Tao of Detox", by Daniel Reid. How can you go wrong by using water, not meds, to cure what ails ya? This way you deal with the cause of illness, not just the symptom. I highly recommend it! What do you lose by reading it? A few hours? I, for one, am worth the time to at least judge for myself if a book on alternative medicine could work. (And how odd to view water as "alternative medicine"! Shouldn't it be the first thing we turn to?)...more info

  • "Water, water, everywhere and not a drop to drink!"
    Dr B's book is one of the most useful detailed observations about wellness and disease relating to our relationship with water, well correlated and compellingly illustrated with concurring scientific findings--all of which are available in any good medical text on the human physiognomy.

    The book covers detailed understandings of water shortage in the body related to asthma, allergies, blood pressure disorders, diabetes, constipation, auto-immune diseases, pain, heartburn, hiatal hernia, colitis, ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, depression, gout---the list goes on and contains practically all the well-known and well-experienced villains of ill-health!

    Although there are no clinically detailed case studies, for a book of this nature these are not needed. Dr B's observations and references to the relevant current medical teaching make for a solidly convincing case for reversing with water therapy what Dr B calls "Chronic Unintentional Dehydration". Most of our body is composed of water (about 75%). To think that dehydration takes place only when severe symptoms and bodily reactions take place is one the greatest single errors anyone can make as far as health and wellness is concerned. Like Coleridge's ancient mariner, in the present day we seem to be marooned upon a painted ocean going nowhere, losing our health because we have forgotten what it means to drink enough water.

    Many people have knocked this finding of Dr B's without going into the merits of the findings that water is a fundamental nutrient for the body, chronic shortfall of which leads to serious dysfunction and disease. A key observation by Dr B is the pointing out the distinction between 'free' water availability in the body and the water that is priority-wise tied up with the body's metabolic functions, and the results of lack of free water in the body.

    One reviewer took exception to Dr B's conclusion that morning sickness of pregnancy was not a sign of dehydration. Observation and results must guide any scientific search or research, not linking apparently similar end-points of 'dis-ease' under differing conditions--in this case: nausea-vomiting of long-distance cycling exertion (or some other cause) equated to the nausea-vomiting (morning sickness) of pregnancy.

    In my own practise I confirm that Dr B's findings are perfectly correct, and the reason for it is quite straightforward. It is a signal that 'food/nutrition' other than water must not be taken, (water being a major nutrient for the body). This is because the digestion of food (even juice or milk) requires the body to tie up water resources at the cost of reduced functionality of other areas of the body where there is already a water shortfall. Morning sickness is entirely and quickly reversible by adding a proper water intake as well as a pinch of unrefined sea salt. Plain water intake acts very significantly different to watery foodstuffs in the bodily metabolism--again a fact available in any standard medical text.

    In the relatively brief period of time I have systematically applied this knowledge to my practise, I have observed remarkable cures with just the addition of the water rehydration therapy to whatever other measures were being taken. In my own practise as a healer, based on Dr. B's findings I use the water requirement guideline for everyone who comes for treatment. (I give my rehydration protocol at the end of this review).


    2+ Years Chronic periodic high fever (up to 105 F) in a female child of 9 years living in New Delhi, which was undiagnosed by all modern clinical tests and was over the past two and a half years variously treated as: repeated tonsillitis/acute strep infection (no medicine helped except homeopathy), Typhoid fever, tuberculosis, and of course 'Pyrexia of Unknown Origin' (PUO)and 'NAD' (not able to diagnose). The mother had been giving the child fruit juices and milk more or less as a 'healthy' alternative to water while the child had no more than 8-12 ounces of water per day.

    All juices were stopped. In this particular episode, all antibiotics that had been given continuously for 10 days were stopped in the morning (fever 103 F) and increasing the water intake to between 800-1000 mls for the day, plus 2 pinches of unrefined sea salt on the tongue directly started bringing down the fever within 1 hour; fever gone in 3 more hours with no repetition of fever since then. All fruit juices were stopped. The liver and spleen enlargement disappeared in a few days.

    Beginnings of arthritic knees in a 74 year old male from Nepal hitherto healthy, with inability to walk usual distances reversed by 30% in 15 days by his own report with the water rehydration protocol. He continues to improve slowly, where all painkillers and anti-inflammatories failed--he has stopped using anti-inflammatories on his own. If we factor in the fact that he has improved by 30% in distance walkable and pain after having given up the painkillers taken so far, I would think his improvement rate is actually much greater than 30% as a comparable situation.

    Other results with rehydration therapy--Many cases of acute constipation reversed/cured; burning in urine with no infection and days later urinary infection diagnosed reversed and cured where antibiotics failed; chronic migraine headaches with nausea, vomiting---reversed/cured. Skin infections, pimples--cured. Angina pains--reversed/healed/cured. (Too early to say what is the clinical/pathological picture--it is under observation). Tear in the meniscus of knee requiring surgery healed with water therapy (and other energy healing methods) not now needing surgery according to the surgeon. Back aches and pains(slipped discs, sciatica) reversed= pain-free within days of water therapy (+ simple exercises in Dr B's book on backaches and arthritis--"How to deal simply with Rheumatoid joint pain & Back Pain"). Acidity and indigestions--healed. Irritable bowel syndrome with bleeding--healed alongwith addition of sugar water as recommended by Dr.B. For the auto-immune disorder, vasculitis (Behcets disease), the symptoms improved in 2 weeks on water +salt +vitamin regimen and continue to do so.

    Conclusions: (1)The rehydration therapy works as a stand alone protective, preventive measure against disease. (2)The water therapy reverses many serious disease conditions. (3)Other therapies work much better with the water therapy, and in many cases additional medicinal/surgical measures are not needed where previously considered essential or inevitable. (4)The Ayurvedic dictum "indigestion is the mother of all disease" is fully proven here as all disease arise from three indigestion conditions:(a)Inability to digest (transform) the intake of food/liquids, emotions and thoughts; (b) Inability to expel/excrete indigestible matter or toxic matter (material or emotional), leading to: (c)Storage and accumulation in body fat and body tissues distorting the structures and functions of the body's organs and working systems.

    Summary of the Rehydration protocol that I use based on Dr B's work is as follows:

    Body weight in kilograms multiplied by 35 milliliters=Standard Total Plain water requirement per 24 hours. (Wt.KG x 35 mls or: Wt.Pounds x 0.55 ounces).

    To the Standard Plain water requirement ADD the fluid amount (ounces or mls) of tea+coffe+colas multiplied by 1.1 as these fluid are diuretic as well as inducing sweating (the hot drinks)so you lose more water than you take in with these beverages.

    This brings up the total plain water requirement for 24 hours. (Other fluids such as milk/juices do not count for supplementing the plain water requirement because being foods the body responds very differently to them as compared to plain water.) Add to this a couple of pinches of sea salt a day, and in a few hours/days/weeks the condition starts to reverse.

    Telling people 'drink more water' or 'drink 10-12 glasses of water a day' is rarely followed, and people have a greatly erroneous idea about their actual water intake! I find a written schedule handed out to my patients works unfailingly.

    The protocol I follow for adults as per Dr. B. is:

    About 2 glasses of water (1 glass=8 ounces/230 mls) on waking in morning.
    1 to 2 glasses of water 1/2 hour before meals.
    1 glass of water 2-1/2 hours after a meal.
    Other plain water during day as needed.
    One multivitamin with minerals, and Vitamin B6 (50-100 mg per day) rounds off the program. (In practise I find the vitamins may not be needed after a few weeks if there is a dietary change in favor of a healthier diet which include more fresh vegetable and some fruits and nuts.)

    This seems to be working very well generally. One of the first things to be noticed by all was that frequency of passing urine increased and the color became pale. (According to Ayurvedic guidelines passing urine 6 times a day is normal.) In the case of people who have water-retention/edema, a temporary salt restriction in food along with placing a pinch of sea salt on the tongue twice a day along with gradual increase of water helps in a few days to clear up such chronic conditions. The salt on tongue seems to get the brain to reorder the body's potassium-sodium-water balance when there is adequate availability of free water in the body. The need for diuretics and their attendant ill-effects was eliminated.

    I do not offer any of the above as medical advice or suggestions-- I only share a summary of my observations as a results of following Dr. B's protocol. For complete details refer to his book. Anyone who understands and follows Dr. B's regimen can benefit similarly as have many patients in my practise. The man was a genius and apparently is still being greatly misunderstood. (He passed away in 2004).

    Five Stars is too small a rating for knowledge of such great importance.

  • Very good, but too technical in parts.
    I enjoyed this book. I'm already a believer in drinking copious amounts of water. My skin is clearer and I feel better. So much of the information in this book wasn't all that new to me.

    On the other hand, this book gets into chemistry, biology, physiology and other technical areas that make the book drag.

    But overall, it's a good read....more info
  • Life Saving
    I can't express enough about how much this book has helped me. I have been taking nutrition classes and heard about Dr Batmanghelidj's philosophy about the importance of drinking water. Boy, you could have knocked me over with a feather. Finally, someone explaining exactly why this vital step in our day to day nutrition is so important. When I started following his treatment advice, I would tell such a difference in the way that I felt. It never occurred to me that I was dehydrated because I drank some juices as well as tea, and diet drinks on a daily basis. I found within 2 weeks, that I was actually craving water. The only difference is that I enjoy distilled water that I make at home. Definitely, worth reading. It will amaze you of how much water plays in our every day health. Good luck! ...more info

  • Water: For Health, for Healing, for Life: You're Not Sick, You're Thirsty!
    I have a large list of books already piled up to read and felt that I already got the message without reading the book. Drink more water (about half your weight in ounces) with a dash of salt in it. That is a good place to start, but it is definitely worth getting this book and reading the rest of the story. Just learning to distinguish the many different 'thirst pains' of the body is worth buying and reading this book. It is well written and rather easy to read considering how technical some of the material can get. I'm sure anyone reading this book will realize that their many different 'maladies' they are suffering from can amazingly and affordably be cured with sufficient hydration. I myself have been suffering for years with some of these 'problems' myself only to discover the cure has been staring me in the face all this time....more info
  • Easy simple to apply remedy for most of our illneses
    Somehow we have been persuaded that natural products that have been here since the dawn of time are harmful to us. Water is one of those products.
    I have found that simply following Dr. B's advice has had a profoundly positive effect on my health. Now I rarely drink soft drinks or juices. My weight dropped and stabilized.I eat smaller portions because after drinking water before and after meals I no longer want to eat as much as I did before.I do not have any major illnesses and very rarely have colds or flu.
    Fortunately for me I was easily able to integrate water into my life because I use a small machine called a Chi Machine. The manufacturer recomended that users drink a glass of water before getting on the machine and after. So since I use it twice a day I was quickly able to get into the habit of drinking water.
    I do drink filtered water. I am sensitive to the taste of chlorine in tap water. I use a Brita filter.
    I first read Dr.B's Your Body's Many Cries for water in 1994. My first 4 copies of the book were 'borrowed' and never returned. I was surprised at how easy it was for some people to adopt the watercure.
    It is not easy for most of us to undo bad habits. I estimate it will take probably one month of determination to get going but once you establish the habit you are on your way.
    Eleven years later I do not regret being persuaded to go back to drinking water.Although Dr. B. did not approve of tea drinking I continued drinking about one cup a day.
    I am not a fanatic. I still love the occasional freshy brewed cup of coffee. ...more info

  • No Scientific Foundation for His Hypothesis
    I agree with Ed's review and immediately came to the assumption that "Dr." Batman is a psuedo-doctor "type" of wholistic "medicine." There is no way that a true medical doctor could have written this book.

    As a top level endurance athlete, I agree with the importance of water's role in the human body. I was disappointed that Dr. Quackman doesnt support any of his theories with actual medical case studies or evidence. Furthermore, many of his theories are too far-fetched (and even in contradiction) to even be possible. Within the first 25 pages, I dreaded finishing this book and found fault with the majority of his conclusions/claims. ie pg 42- how can a vomiting mother-to-be's body be a natural way of adjusting body hydration? ever vomit or have diarhea before a 120 mile bicycle race? i have. vomiting leads to severe dehydration and depletion of electrolytes (salts). A typical example an incorrect statement and conclusion. The book is filled with non-sense.

    I purchased the book as a result of a recommendation and these reviews. I hope EVERYONE READS THIS REVIEW and doesnt buy this book. Save your money/time and SELECT ANOTHER BOOK. I generally like everything I read. This is the ONLY time Ive felt a book should be AVOIDED. I feel the lack of medical foundation of his recommendations can cause SERIOUS MEDICAL HARM. Before trying anything he advocates, one should SEE A TRUE MEDICAL DOCTOR.

    Readers will find better hydration advice in a typical Running or Cycling book....more info
