Your Body's Many Cries for Water

Writing about web page http://www.fourwinds10.com/news/02-education/A-books/2004/02A-10-03-04-your-bodys-many-cries-for-water.html

3 out of 5 stars

Considering the fact that we are composed of 55 – 60% of water it is amazing that most of us do not have eating and drinking patterns that reflect this statistic, especially in Britain. This book goes into great depth about water and how dehydration is at the root of many health problems from headache and stress through to arthiritus and other degenerative diseases. I'm not sure about his radical claim that dehydration is the root cause of all diseases, but it makes absolute medical sense that our joints, skin and major organs (including our brains) need a lot of pure water each day to function at their best, and to prevent uneccessary future decline. It also flushes out toxins and other waster products that we most definetly don't want hanging around!

"Chronic and persistently increasing dehydration is the root cause of almost all currently encountered major diseases of the human body."
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj

    My body is also 10% fat – does this mean I should be eating more ice-cream? :-)

  2. I know: unfortunately I copied the title of the book from a web page and now it appears to be locked into the review!

    Yes, I agree that lack of water is probably the root cause of quite a lot of health problems.

    However, it doesn't really matter in which form the body takes in fluid – apparently your body deals with all liquids in the same manner, so you could get it from food as well – although I guess if you're drinking lots of other things then your body has to do other work in getting rid of the added extras.

  5. I think we all have different needs when it come to water, depending on our lifestyles etc, and being militant about it is unneccesary. The sad fact is that many people reach for headache tablets and become over stressed when there really is a more natural way to keep stress levels low.

    This comment is in response to Julie Moreton. I totally disagree with you. A friend who has pancreatic propblems went for a physical several times. Each time they told him that he was dehydrated. He drinks at least 3 Liters of fluids a day. So how do you explain his dehydration? It's 3 liters of diet soda…

    Hi Jack

    Good point, but surely 3 litres of diet soda a day can't be good? I'm no doctor and at the risk of sounding a bit patronising (many apologies if this does sound pompous – don't mean it to be ; – )) – perhaps in this case drinking more water and less soda might be beneficial?

    In view of your comment though, maybe I should expand my comment to say that you may be able to get some fluid (although obviously not all) from a healthy diet which includes fruit and veg etc as well as water.

    As an aside, a relative of mine, when recently breastfeeding was drinking gallons and gallons of water and was actually told by her health visitor to cut down as she may have ended up damaging her liver and kidneys.

    I guess moderation is the key!
