Water as a Healer
Anyway today I want to share some very important information about Water! I grew up knowing that we needed to drink at least eight, 8 ounce glasses of water a day. The more you know, the more you know, you need to know! Later I learn that enough water equates to drinking 1/2 your body weigh in ounces water every day (if you weigh 100 pounds, you'd drink 50 ounces of water a day). This article was a real eye opener for me, it taught me in-depth about the importance of drinking enough water and the consequences of not drinking enough. Due to the length of the article I will share it in two parts.

This researcher-author became intrigued about the healing affects of water when he stumbled on Fareydoon Batmanghelidj's articles on the internet. The claims made by this doctor were too good to be true. The author investigated the documentation supporting the doctor's claims. He was shocked to discover that a great amount of information about water was personal opinion and was not backed up by research or documentation.
This research-author read two of the doctor's books and numerous articles about the importance of drinking ample amounts of water. In reading the many, many other articles about the effects water can have on our health, he was looking for scientific medical information to back up Dr. Batmanghelidj's claims about water. The more he reviewed, the more complicated the water issue became.
The shocker is that most persons are probably dehydrated and don't know it. Dehydration is often silent and the initial symptoms not visible; like an addiction, you may have it but not able to recognize being in trouble!
Four big ideas about water and humans:
• 1. we need to drink a lot of water everyday;
• 2. not drinking enough water can cause dehydration;
• 3. dehydration can cause many health problems, disorders and diseases;
• 4. water needs to be balanced by salt.
Well, you knew most of this but you probably don't know all you need to know. For example, that the body can gradually lapse into dehydration and you may not be aware of it.
As we get older, we tend to lose our ability to sense and recognize that we need to immediately drink more water. And that one needs to ingest salt to help water do its job, this information is the opposite of being told that salt is bad for you! Hopefully this article will keep it simple and clarify information about the "essentials of water and good health!”
Keep in mind that this article focuses on the consequences of dehydration or lack of water and not all the other properties of water.
Before plunging into Dr. Batmanghelidj's theory about water cure, it will be helpful to become aware of basic human physiology and how the human body works.
Basics of human body and water:
The human body is a water machine, designed to run primarily on water, amino acids and minerals. From a common sense point of view, if we are made up of plain water, then naturally the quality of the water we consume will have a very dramatic impact on our overall state of health. Every healing and life giving process that happens in our body happens through water!
The human body is 99% water. Water facilitates all metabolic processes. Every function in the body is monitored by the brain and connected to the efficient flow of water. The brain is 2% of the total body weight but receives about 20% of blood circulation. The brain, made up of 85% water, has first priority for water. When the brain is short of water or dehydrated, water that would normally flow to other parts of the body, like extremities, is shut off. One can feel faint or dizzy when this happens. The heart has the second priority for being hydrated, thereafter the liver and kidneys. Indeed, every cell in the body is part of the body's monitoring for water on a priority basis. The body is constantly reacting to the amount of water in the cells. When the body gets dehydrated, then the brain robs Peter to pay Paul [ so to speak ]; water is redistributed on a priority basis. This is not common knowledge!
Another essential piece of information to keep in mind is that the body heals all diseases at same time. The body heals everything all at once! This may explain why some healing takes longer than another. [ This is a new medical information. ] But one needs to drink a lot of water at the proper time, with a pinch of sea salt, for water to act as a healer. Batmanghelidj Water cures
Functions of Water in the Body is to:
•. provide a fluid that dissolves minerals to form electrolytes that, in turn, generate electricity for the body cells
• oxygenate your blood
• help make lymph fluid
• lubricate your eyes and makes saliva to keep your mouth clean
• help you digest your food
• prevent and treats common chronic ailments
• lubricate the joints
• help you sleep; the brain needs water to produce melatonin that helps you sleep
• ensure that your body produces adequate amounts of blood cells and , and that they circulate appropriately to fight
• make immune cells that help immune system to work [Leukemia, lymphoma]
•. flush out wastes and toxins
The body has two kinds of water:
The first is water that is already in use, is already committed and cannot be used for new functions. Think of this water as being married to the cells of the body and committed to carrying out existing functions of the body. Adams: Batmanghelidj interview water Batmanghelidj Water cures
The second type of water is free or new water that is needed to perform new functions and replenish all body cells. Organ cells, such as lungs, digestive system and skin, lose water by expiration, defecation, urination, and sweating. Cells also need new water to create enzymes, hormones and other body substances like energy producing ATP in cells. Water has energy and transmits it to body cells. Water is more than just a liquid!
There are many other properties of water that are not discussed in this article, such as: H20; Dr. Masaru Emoto and Water Crystals; Pollack: Book 4 Phases of water
Foods-beverages causing dehydration:
New water intake is different from other beverages such as coffee, soft drinks and fruit drinks. Coffee and soft drinks contain caffeine and sugar or corn syrup and these beverages act as diuretics and cause dehydration. Rich proteins such as meats, fats and many drugs also cause dehydration.
Dehydration Symptoms in Adults: WebMD: Dehydration
The signs and symptoms of dehydration may range from minor to severe and include:
• Increased thirst
• Dry mouth and swollen tongue
• Palpitations (feeling that the heart is jumping or pounding)
• Sluggishness fainting
• Inability to sweat
• Decreased urine output
• Urine yellow or amber color
Classic example of dehydration is a drinking alcohol hangover. Alcohol is a diuretic and water has to be replenished by sapping it from muscles and other organs like your brain. This causes a headache!
Water Cure Theory: Batmanghelidj claims that shortage of water in different areas of the body will cause varying symptoms, signals and complications that we sense or feel; such as pain, inflammation, thirst, itching, headache, shortness of breath, heartburn and fatigue. His main contention is that lacking water for a long time [chronic dehydration] causes the cells to react [compensation]; thereby causing chronic disorders and diseases like asthma, arthritis, constipation, high blood pressure, cancer, stress, depression, excess weight, obesity, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and other problems.
The main theory is that many if not most of these health problems can be treated with the right amount of water at the proper time. His prime example is having successfully treated over 3,000 people in Iran suffering from peptic ulcer disease with only water. This water therapy was published as the main editorial of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology in June 1983, and also reported in the SCIENCE WATCH (Science Times) of the New York Times, June 21, 1983. Water completely reverses many illness-disease conditions in a matter of days or months. No drugs ... just plain water! In virtually every health problem dehydration is perceived as a factor, not necessarily the cause but certainly a major factor.
So how does water work to heal and cure diseases?
Water in the human body generates electricity: Human body cells have a resonant wave frequency of about 1000 KHz. The body is an electrical machine washed in water. It is water that dissolves the minerals sodium, calcium, chloride, magnesium and potassium and allows these to function as electric energy or electrolytes in the human body. Electrolytes in the cells of the nervous system communicate with one another by means of electric signals that rapidly travel along the nerve system. The electricity generated by the brain and all cells makes all body functions possible and indeed life itself. Welsh: How brain works 2013
"Water and salt are absolutely essential for the generation of neuro-electric energy, and particularly for neurotransmission mechanisms." Batmanghelidj Water cures The short video below illustrates this magic in water:
Histamine & immune suppression: Batmanghelidj discovered that “histamine” is a vital chemical messenger [neurotransmitter] in the brain and body. Histamine regulates body water intake. It is in charge of water intake and drought management in the body. It is less active when the body is fully hydrated, and becomes increasingly active when the body becomes dehydrated. In short, histamine produces pain when an area in the body is suffering from drought! At the same time, histamine suppresses the immune system in the digestive system in an effort to make sure the water drought does not starve the brain of water. While one function of histamine is to manage-regulate drought in the body, the second function is to regulate the immune system. The more dehydration, the more suppression of the immune system and exacerbation of numerous illnesses and disorders. Batmanghelidj Water cures Cheves: Histamine intolerance 2012
According to Batmanghelidj, water completely reverses conditions such as: asthma, allergies, angina, hypertension, migraine headaches, arthritis pain, back pain, colitis pain, chronic constipation, heartburn, hiatal hernia, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, eye problems, high cholesterol, morning sickness and overweight problems. Even heart problems needing bypass surgery. All these disease conditions responded simply and permanently to water. Drink any water you feel comfortable to drink. Clean tap water is as good as any.

Suppressed Immune system: When the brain signals pain in a certain part of the body, it automatically signals the digestive system and disrupts the immune system [and lymphatic system]. The immune system immediately becomes suppressed as a result of excessive activity of histamine. Now the white cell count is low and the body becomes increasingly susceptible to infections and disorders.
