Customer Reviews

This book is very informative.
For me that's much easier than drinking plain water.
I read most of this book in one sitting.

I'd heard for years that I should be drinking more water, but nobody could tell me why this was so. At the same time I found it extremely difficult to increase my intake of water for apparently no good reason.

Finally, here is a book that explains why we should drink more water.

Dr B's explanation, which constitutes the important message of this book, is that many common, serious ailments are caused by simple dehydration.

When Dr B was incarcerated in prison in Iran for political reasons, he made the first of one of his important discoveries by completely alleviating the severe pain of a fellow inmate suffering from a stomach ulcer by giving him 3 glasses of water, no more no less.

The book contains many testimonials written by persons testifying that Dr B's water intake recommendations had cured/greatly alleviated their arthritis, headaches, MS, high blood pressure, dizziness, overweight, asthma, allergies, high cholesterol, angina, hiatal hernia, back pain, etc etc.

The amount of water we must drink is a minimum of 6 to 8 8-ounce glasses of water per day. Alcohol, coffee, tea and caffeine-containing beverages don't count as water.

It's best to drink one glass half an hour before a meal and one glass two and a half hours after each meal. Two more glasses should be taken in connection with our biggest meal or before going to bed.

Personally I have no idea how much an ounce is, but ten glasses of water is equivalent to about 2 litres, so I try to drink 2 litres a day. I measure this by refilling empty 1/2 litre coconut water cartons, and try to drink 4 of these a day.

I thought I was a water drinker! When I poured out 80 ounces (a half ounce per pound of my body weight), I knew right away that I had NOT been a sufficient water drinker most of my life. It was helpful to actually see the 10 glasses of water that Dr. Batmanghelidj recommended for my weight. I began immediately drinking 80 plus ounces a day and I have not had any lower back pain since. I also have not had much desire to drink any other beverages. It takes some effort to drink the recommended amount of water but it is absolutely worth it. Having a comfortable painfree body is well worth a few extra bathroom visits. I am very thankful to have read this book and received this information. I am giving the book to friends and family, it is a must read!

Actually this review is a cross reference to Dr. B's other masterpiece, How to Deal with Back Pain and Rheumatiod Joint Pain, where I have extensively written a chronology of successful curing of my dislocated disc in my lower back. I had purchased Many Cries... a few months ago (2008 revised edition) where page 51 describes 2 alignment exercises for the discs in the neck. By coincidence, my neck was more stiff than usual. My chiropractor and his massage therapists could not relax the left side of my neck no matter how many sessions they tried. In December 2008 I was going to them several times a week with minimal success. By chance I came across the techniques on page 51 and after 3 sessions with a 48 hour rest between each self-session in the week after Xmas 2009, I have not had any recurring stiff necks( today is Jan 24, 2010). I say 'by chance' because this neck tech is not explained in his Back Pain book and I just happened to start reading Many Cries... I recommend all of his books. I have read most. There is some repetition but I have learned something new in each of his books. Between this book and the Back Pain edition, back pain should be history for you.How to Deal With Back Pain and Rheumatoid Joint Pain
Today = Sept 23,2011--Wife had stiff neck last week. No deal, right? Wrong! The next day was my daughter's wedding. I did the technique on my wife and no more stiff neck since. To be safe, I did the technique on myself before the wedding. We both had a great time.

I borrowed this book from the library instead of purchasng it -- and I'm glad I did.

The book itself is too long for the subject matter and includes information that could have been omitted.

A person reading this book of course wants to know if the topic applies to them, if so, why, the science behind it all, and instructions.

Guess what's missing here? INSTRUCTIONS.

I could overlook the poor grammar and editing mistakes (or lack of editing). I could overlook the lack of an index. But I found myself jumping back to the intro over and over again, looking for what I was sure I must have missed -- discussion on different types of water and what an individual should do if they feel they are dehydrated.

I wanted to read this book specifically about the information on allergies. Now, granted, it was informative, but except for "hints" in testimonial letters, the reader has no idea how much water to consume, how much salt (and which kind) to add, etc.

It's like a diet book without the diet included.

Now, I have to say, I'm grateful the doctor brought the subject of dehydration to the attention of many, but this book does little to help beyond that.

I ended up Googling.

I found out that I should divide my weight in half and drink that amount in ounces in water each day.

I learned about different types of water (purified is better than tap).

I found instructions on how to make my own "Gatorade" (without the sugar) and also how much salt to add and which type (sea salt!) to my beverages each day.

I also downloaded a smart phone app that allows me to track my water intake. HUGE shock here at what I found out.
