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.

This book was very interesting-- I couldn't put it down. I had gone to his website many years ago, and started drinking more water after reading the information there. This book is so logical that you have to wonder why mainstream medicine totally ignores one of the most basic and fundamental necessities of life-- water!

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!

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!

My boyfriend, age 47, had horrible allergies for 15 years, and headaches since childhood. Sinusitis, too. Pills, nasal sprays, antibiotics, you name it, he tried it. He had headaches almost every day and ate excedrin migraine tablets like they were going out of style. He regularly went to a specialist for his sinus problems. Nothing helped, and the last bout of antibiotics made him feel horrible. I got this book, and read the first couple chapters to him out loud. I looked him in the eye and said, "Hon, I don't think you have allergies. I don't think you have a headache problem, and I don't think you have sinus problems! I think you're dehydrated." He started the salt and water and has never looked back, no headaches, no sinus problems, no allergies. We rode almost 800 miles on his motorcycle over Memorial day 3 day weekend, it's late May and there was pollen gallore, NOTHING. NO allergies. He can breathe! He smells the air, and he sleeps at night with a clear nose, and NO MORE SNORING. Yep. People can knock Dr. Batman all they want. We're thrilled. And waiting to see what other changes we find in our bodies as the weeks progress. Fantastic. My boyfriend is no longer suffering as he goes about his work day and also can enjoy life more now. THANK YOU DR BATMAN, may you rest in peace.
Review & 5 month later update:
During the whole 5 months we've continued to do the Water Cure, this book worked wonders for us, because we had zero allergies, zero headaches, no more snoring, soft & much more healthy looking skin, supple joints as healthy and limber as in our teens (no more strange feelings in the joints when stretching or doing yoga) no more stiff necks, etc). Digestion is totally optimal. The water cure makes you beautiful, healthy and younger looking too! We love it!
