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.
"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

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.
However, he backs up his claims with some fairly detailed explanations of how the body works and the number of ways water comes into play. It certainly appears to have solid scientific foundation. And even though I can't shake off the idea that he's a bit of an eccentric, the message is potentially too important to discard offhand. I think if you ignore this information, you do so at your peril. You certainly cannot be harmed by his suggestions - you can only gain. In a way this info is so basic that I would recommend reading this before picking up any other book about your health ... particularly those in the diet category. Read Batmanghelidj before Atkins for sure.
The one major downside is that he doesn't really spell out a regime for how much water you should consume or when. From the testimonial letters you can roughly estimate the requirement but he should definitely consider bringing this info out in future editions of this book.
For being such an outspoken pioneer this work deserves 5 stars.
