Book Title: Your Body's Many Cries For Water
Author: Dr. F Batmanghelidj
In today's world, the cost of keeping healthy is very expensive. Unless you have a health insurance policy, or you happen to live in a first world country where you have access to free/nationally subsidised high quality healthcare system, many people can't afford the ever rising cost of healthcare treatment and medication.
Here comes a man who waged a one-man battle against the global medical institutions with a simple message: "You are not sick, you are thirsty". Dr Batmanghelidj or Dr B as he is sometimes referred to, escaped death penalty when he discovered the healing powers of plain water. In his book Your Body's Many Cries For Water , Dr B wrote that many of todays degenerative diseases are caused by dehydration and that if you drink enough water, these diseases can be prevented or even cured. He described how the drugs used to treat these ailments promote instead of hindering dehydration and thereby creating a vicious cycle which only aggravates the illness. To substantiate his theory, Dr B included numerous testimonials from his patients who experienced relief using his method. Now, I am not a doctor and I have no medical training but his explanation does make sense. The book is easy to read and his explanation of the medical jargon is easy to understand.
To test his method, I have tried drinking at least 2 litres of water everyday and its amazing to see how my energy levels improved. You have to note though that coffee, tea, fruit juices, soft drinks and other beverages do not count.
Sadly Dr B died in 2004. I hope that one day someone else will come along and pick up his torch to carry on his fight.
