Batmanghelidj, M.D., has identified the crisis calls of the body for water --pain, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and more. He has discovered the key to a longer, healthier, and more vigorous life. He shares with you his medical breakthrough that many people put their minds and bodies under intolerable and unecessary stress and become sick simply because they do not drink enough water.

* Prevent and reverse premature aging
* Eliminate pains including heartburn, back pain, arthritis, colitis pain, anginal pain, migraine headaches

Product Description

From Amazon

As a result of extensive research into the role of water in the body, the author, a medical doctor, believes that he has found chronic dehydration to be the cause of many conditions including asthma, allergies, arthritis, angina, migraine headaches, hypertension, raised cholesterol, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, depression, and diabetes in the elderly.

According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, the body possesses many different thirst signals. A dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of your body's water needs. He describes a variety of more reliable ones, and helps you learn to understand when your body is calling for water. In this way, he claims you can prevent, treat, and cure a variety of conditions of ill health, at no cost, with what he calls nature's miracle medicine: Water. The author explains how much water one needs to drink a day to stay healthy, and why tea, coffee, and sodas are not good substitutes for water.

Review

"Dr. Batman's books are full of common sense and truthful medical advice. His suggested treatment of diseases goes to the roots, the cause of it and anyone who is fortunate enough to read them won't be disappointed with their purchase." -- Laurence A. Malone, M.D., Ph.D., Dean for Academic Affairs, The Learning Center for College Sciences, Ohio

"It started with a patient suffering unbearable ulcer pain one late night. The Doctor treated him with 500 cubic centimeter of water. His pain became less severe and then disappeared completely. The physician was so impressed that he prescribed two glasses of water six times a day and achieved a "clinical" cure of the ulcer attack." -- The New York Times "Science Watch"

"One man's solution to soaring health costs: water." -- Paul Harvey

"Thanks to Dr. Batmanghelidj. I put your book next to the Bible and I read them both." -- Dick Gregory

"The average American is woefully uninformed about water. Mose people think they drink enough water, but they don't. Dr. Batmanghelidj's book will created a tide of public opinion about the wonders of water." -- The Connection Newspaper

"The water principle has a convincing logic but turns much of current medical practice on its head. Does it work? You only have to turn on the tap to find out." -- The European, London, December 1995

"When Dr. Batmanghelidj thinks of a glass of water, he doesn't think of it as half full or half empty. He thinks of it as brimming over with the essential fluid of life. He thinks of it as the solvent of our ills and the deliverer of ripe old age. He thinks of it as the wave of the future." -- The Washington Times

I consider Dr. Batman's information as God-sent. It is my prayer that you too will benefit from his pain-relieving and life-extending revelations. -- Straws in the Wind Newsletter

One man's solution to soaring health costs: water. -- Paul Harvey

The water principle has a convincing logic that turns much of current medicine on its head. -- The European Newspaper, London

3.0 out of 5 stars Major life Improvement! May 20 2002
Format:Paperback
I admit, I was skeptical. I felt like I would be silly not to try it, though--I have suffered with asthma for fifteen years, and this was such a simple thing. I gave up caffeine and aspartame, and I drank the prescribed water. It took about two months, but my asthma has dramatically improved. I was a two-to three time a day user of an albuterol inhaler, along with two different steroid inhalers. I have eliminated all but a minimum dose of one steroid inhaler, and I almost never need the albuterol. During allergy season, yet!
This book gets good marks for its advice to drink more water, but it is not particularly well written. Some of what he writes about sounds particularly far-fetched, and I am still skeptical about a lot of what he says. Still, it's hard to argue with success. If you have suffered with asthma, this book is definately worth a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Drinking Water is not enough Aug. 1 2001
Format:Paperback
I have read this book very carefully and in short I find it too simplistic. The author claims that most common diseases like asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, arthritic pain, heartburn, etc., are mostly due to the fact that most people don't drink enough water and their body are thirsty.
It is very important for your health to drink a considerable amount of water daily, as it is to exercise, control your weight or take care of your diet and the kind of food you eat.
The author stresses the importance of the quantity of water you should ingest daily, but I have found no mention to the water quality. There is no reference to the differences between tap water, mineral water, filtered water, ionised water and so on. The water mainly differentiates by their mineral content, calcium content (hardness) and pH content.
I rate this book 3 stars because in spite of the mentioned limitations I find it important to motivate people to drink more water.

Format:Paperback
Without condescending to read it, I had pooh-poohed the idea of this book for years. "Who needs to be told to drink water?" I thought. "Everyone already knows that." Then one afternoon, by accident, I saw it on a reshelving cart at a bookstore, and flipped through it. My new reaction was, "Oh, my God!" There I stood, as a Ph.D. scientist, looking at the book I'd made fun of, and I felt like a fool as I read key sections in several chapters.
I bought two copies (one to underline, with marginal notes; the other to lend out), and read through it in one sitting, after which I looked up Dr. Batmanghelidj in Virginia and phoned him for an extended conversation. I found him very congenial, unpretentious and blazingly competent. Since that day several years ago I have recommended this book to hundreds of people, and I've provided free copies to many doctors, dentists and youth counselors.
Cocky, presumptuous health practitioners, even more arrogant than I had earlier been about this subject, find this book easy to dismiss if they haven't read it, and I identify with their foregone-conclusion mentality, having been there myself prior to understanding this book. To the rest of you, whether you believe you're knowledgeable about health issues or not, I can only plead with you to read this book and take it seriously. In my case, I had been repeatedly plagued by headaches and lower-back pain before reading it, but not once since applying its recommendations. The orthopedic section alone is worth the price of the book. If you know anyone with asthma, it would be tragic not to buy a copy of this for them.
In short, though I have read literally hundreds of books on health and nutrition, I consider this book to be, without doubt, one of the very few most important and immediately practical ever written.

2.0 out of 5 stars water is good for you, this book is dicey Dec 26 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is mediocre at best. I really don't like it when medical doctors cite uncontrolled clincal observations and pretend they are proof of efficacy. Then again, the author does state that his goal is not to convince skeptics, so he fails to convince me.
There are real errors in the book. E.g., he cites the affect of Prozac as if it were an MAOI-class drug, which it is not. There are a few other mistakes of this magnitude which I wouldn't normally expect from an MD that tend to make me question the author's credibility. I definitely think the author's opinions about AIDS and HIV are nonsense and have basically no place in this book. It's one thing to remain open minded, and another to dismiss a large body of evidence.
But,.... my reservations don't mean that the author isn't right about the importance of water. We all know that drinking more water is good for us. It is possible that drinking quite alot more as the author advocates is VERY good for us, and is very unlikely to be harmful, so why not!
The book basically annoyed me, but based on it and my observations of the effectiveness of the water plan on someone I know are enough to make me want to try it.

By M. G.
Format:Paperback
Dr. Batmanghelidj has written a generally good book whose core advice of "drink more water" has helped me a great deal physically. For this I would give it five stars. However, the book has two big flaws:
1. Some careful editing, more citations, and an index would improve this book considerably.
2. The chapter on AIDS is problematic. ....
The AIDS chapter focuses not on water, but amino acids. The doctor believes that AIDS is not caused, initially, by a virus, but rather by an amino acid imbalance. This is a debatable hypothesis .... .... Read the chapter concerning the digestive system first (Dr. Batmanghelidj specializes in digestive research, and makes more sense in this chapter), the chapter on AIDS last, and everything else in between.
The core advice of this book is harmless and potentially helpful; take care with the rest.
