It all seemed so simple that it was hard to believe.  I personally coined the phase “When you look for solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems, you find the answers to be quite simple and usually right under your feet.”  Therefore, if anyone believes that a glass of water can solve so many of our health concerns, it should be me.

I am surprised that it took me fifteen years to read a book about the miracle workings of simple water.  The book, “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water – Don’t Treat Thirst with Medications”, by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D., was published in 1992 by Global Health Solutions, Inc.  This book breaks down into simple terms the physiology of dehydration of the body, and how prolonged dehydration spawns the most common diseases, like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, asthma and allergies.  

Dr. Batmanghelidj, an Iranian born medical doctor, trained at London University’s St. Mary’s Hospital, received his “hard knocks” while his serving sentence in Iran’s prison. He was incarcerated after the Iranian revolution of 1979.  The prison was a perfect place for clinical trials. Because of the lack of facilities and medications, he was forced to use common sense in treating illness among his fellow inmates.  It is in this controlled environment that he discovered that plain water is a potent pain killer.

Americans, who are victims of mass marketing of everything, and especially foods and drinks, which only satiate the desire centers of the brain, are generally unaware of how we are psychologically manipulated by radio and television advertising.  Madison Ave in New York City, Americas advertising and marketing center, spends billions of dollars each year to create within the populous the thirsts for foods, alcoholic drinks, colas and most recently, the newest pharmaceutical drugs. 

Interestingly, the greatest marketing of pills and drugs for every imaginable illness takes place at the close of the work day, when people collapse on their sofas, watching the evening news and attempting to escape the drudgery of another stressful day on the job.  They have proven to be the easiest people to persuade, cajole and convince, because of the psychological state of mind that accompanies the stresses of the workplace, almost any workplace in America.  Everyone is looking for that little pill that will ease their pain and help them to face tomorrow.  The result is a boom in the pharmaceutical industry, with patients asking their doctors for the newest and latest advertised miracle pill.  The patients tell their doctors what to prescribe for them!

After his release from prison, he escaped Iran and Dr. Batmanghelidj then relocated to the USA, where he has attempted to create an awareness of dehydration as the etiology, the source, of many diseases.  His simple solution water treatment regime has been published in prestigious medical journals and he has lectured at colleges, universities and professional seminars around the world.   He contends that the first line of treatment in any disease should be the re-hydration of the body through administering increased water to the patient.

In this book, there are many simple answers to questions about how the lack of water causes stresses in the body.  In a dehydrated state, the body then creates conditions that lead to disease.  Since the body is made up of 75% water, and only 25% solids, it is common sense that if there is a reduced access to water, the body would automatically go on the defensive.  He explains that the intake of other liquids like coffee, tea, juices and sodas are no substitute for water.  He also explains how the consumption of these beverages along with alcohol, also “destroy the natural thirst sensation”.  This is the body’s way of telling you that it needs water.

Of course, he does not advise that everyone take ten glasses of water each day and throw away the pills.  The body does become adjusted to the chemical conditions created by pharmaceutical medicines; these medications often create chemical imbalances which further mask the need for water in the body’s healing mechanism.  What is advised for most people, except for those with kidney disease, is to begin by slowly adding more water, one or two glasses first thing in the morning and one 8 oz glass one hour before each meal.  The increase should take place slowly for three to four weeks.  If there is any possibility that you have kidney disease, he advises that you inform your doctor of your desire to try the water treatment approach.   If you choose this option, you should also monitor your water intake along with your urine discharge to make sure that there is no excessive retention of water.

Dr. Batmanghelidj also explains the need for salt in the body to maintain homeostasis, or fluid/electrolyte balance.  I find it interesting that most hypertension and heart patients are placed on a low salt diet along with diuretics, which further dehydrates and weakens the body, hence creating further disease states.  Another condition that results from dehydration is the amino acid, or protein imbalance.  This imbalance produces immune disorders which then result in conditions which are tagged as HIV and auto-immune diseases, such as arthritis and lupus, where the body begins to consume itself because of the lack of water and essential amino acids to the cells. 

The solutions are simple, more Kangen™ water¹ and Moringa oleifera, a complete vegetable protein, which also contains naturally occurring zinc and selenium. Dr. Batmanghelidj recommends all vegetable sources of proteins along with zinc to bring about the balance in the body which will allow natural healing to take place.  All of these are necessary for the body to revert to its normal state.  According to research conducted by the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda Maryland,  Moringa oleifera, also known as Nebedaye, is the richest, most nutrient dense vegetable source of multivitamins and minerals every created.  These are 100% bio-available nutrients in the plant.  Neither Madison Avenue or the pharmaceutical industry or the American Medical Association will tell you how simple it is to restore your health.  Here it is – Kangen™ water and Moringa/Nebedaye.  Try it for a better life.
