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.Read more ›
One thing I absolutely swear by is water to relieve anxiety! He says that if you are even a little dehydrated, it will cause you to feel anxious. When I feel anxiety coming on, I immediately drink a couple of glasses of water, and pretty soon I notice it's gone. I think that's why road rage goes up in the summer-- dehydration from the heat makes people anxious and crabby. I've also learned that when I'm craving sweets, it usually means that I'm thirsty.
A tip I've learned to help me drink more: every time I take a drink from my water bottle, I count. Instead of mindlessly taking a sip and putting the lid back on, I consciously take 10 glugs (you can start with fewer and work up). I notice that counting makes a big difference in the amount of water I drink each day!
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.
